MEATS AND EGGS
SOAR HIGH OVER
With commission, houses and grocers
paying from 58 . to 60 cents a dozen
wholesale for eggs, housekeepers arc f ac
' ing a retail prico of abgut 75 cents a
dwSen in" Salem, notwithstanding the
fact that the big agitation, is now on to
reduce llie'cost o'fllviiig. ' ..'
. no year ago eggs were selling whole
ate in isalem at 45 cents a dozcn,: with
a retail price of 55 and 60 cents. Two
years ago the dealers were 'paying v
cents a dozen, with retail at 50 cents.
To "the housekeeper) the price of egg
baa advanced 25 cents a dozen in the
pest two years.
The same story of higher living costs
is true in the poultry market.- Meat
markets and commission houses were
" paying 16-cents a pound for hen two
years ago. Now the market quotation
is 24 cents a pound. For chickens, the
price paid by dealers two years ago was
18 cents. Today it is 22 cents.
The veal market has also kept pace
with higher living costs. Two years ago
" meat markets were paying stock raisers
15 cents a pound. One year ago the price
was 18 cents -while today the markets
will pay 23 cents.
While statistics show that Salem is
one of tB0 moat economical places in the
whole country in which to live, figures
also show that the market bill and the
egg bill has rmwle a striking advance
over the figures of two years ago.
