This threw the demand for lighter
meats oa the supply of veal which
proved equal ts the demand. Two
or three of the calves were particularly fine isnimaL and the cheicest
seclioas brought over eleven cents
a pound- The supply of pork was
almost equal to the demand.
The supply of eggs increased
some over last week and only 32c
wholesale was oflered. Tbe people
selling the eggs, however, had a
ready market and many sold at thia
figure rather tbas retail them at
tke ra>; of 35c or 400 a dozen. The
dafmand !or eggs retail, however,
wss very good.
Live chickens were to be seen is
great numbers and few crates left

for ns'ure birds and fair-sized

prospective buyers werc unable to

consigned it to the oblivion
