But while house trade last week was not
as brisk as It baa been at some limes, or
ners from traveling men and also direct
from merchants mere as liberal as ever,
and In many casea were even heavier. In
a number of llnea traveling men are carry,

ing with exoepthmally good success in landing-future
business as well as Immediate
orders. Taking everything Into considera
tion, the opinion of both wholesalers and
retailers is that the outlook for future busi
ness could not be better, and tbev are all
counting on a record-bieaklng trade
throughout the fall and winter.
The markets have fluctuated to sx.me ex
tent during the week, hut still the changes
have not t-cn of a radical or startling ua
ture There Is a general frellng of firmnees
on practically all classes of goods, and
with the bright outlook for future business.

the delays in transportation. has reduced
local stocks to some extent, but still Job
bers ere able tn fill all orders promptly.
The output In this section so far has been
exceptionally good, but still hardly np to
expectations in i-ome quarters. This is
probably owing to the large fruit crop early
In the season, which gave consumers an op
portunity to put up a large part of their
needs in the way of Jams and preservea,
which has had a tendency to curtail the
late demand. v
The coffee market Is still advancing.
Prices now in force are to higher
than those quoted a week ago,, and still
higher prices are being confidently pre
dicted for the near future. Reports from
Rraril sre rather discouraging, as it is
claimed that serious damage ass done to
September Towering, and, besides, that
many of the plant tiona are so badly run
down that It all! take considerable time
to repair them. With the heavy withdraw

fact, more confident of a good fall and
