POULTRY MARKET REVIEW
Trade Experts Better - Demand on
Account Boa Festival. '
A TYont street houaa haa Issued the
following review regarding the poultry
Poultry market waa poor for the en
tire week, especially on bene and small
springers. Toward tha latter Dart of
the week, however, receipts were lighter
and stocks for the week were pretty
wen cieanea up ner Saturday night.
Hens sold for from lo down to 15c and
generally at the last named price. We
got Ko early In the week for some, but
most of them sold for lie. Springers
generally aold at 12 0 13c. Large onea
are mora desirable than are the small
onea Large spring ducks (must be
three pounds or more) will bring Z59
tic, but old ducks ar dull at 14 16c.
Fat dreaaad turkeya will bring ti&
17 Ho, and good live turkeya too Old
geese dull at llQllo and large young
ge will bring It 14a It Is our opin
ion that thla will be a good week for
spring eniekens, if or good alt, and
that ft will be wall for you to aend all
you can. It la Ukely also that hena
will be pretty good oellera at about
aoove prices. Oet the goods in early if
you can; we will have lota of visitors in
me city tnia weeK, ana many of them
will want chicken.
