The dried prune market locally
is ttill a negligible one, with buy
ers holding off until selling reach
es a satisfactory footing.
A few dried prunes hare been
taken up , in this district, but
these -only In 1 small lots, and at
a i price that is way; below any
figure which will leave a profit
to the grower.:" "
It Is eald authentically that be

have been sold by small growers
for four cents' on a 30-35 basis.
This, would mean the price paid
for most of those sold about here
ranges from three to three and a
half cents. .. l .
