Honey Market.

CHICAGO.-The holidays are as usual not favorable to the sale of honey, and we therefore quote the market dull with prices unchanged from last quotations. Fancy comb honey brings 14, but quality as well as appearance is necessary. No. 1 sells at 124@13; off grades difficult to move at 1@3 less. Extracted choice white, 7@742; amber, 6@7, with off grades about 54. Beeswax, 30.

A No.1.-All sper ong well filled except the row of cells next to the wood : combs straight ; one-eighth part of comb surface soiled, or the entire surface slightly soiled; the out. side of the wood well scraped of propolis.

No. 1.-All sections well filled except the row of cells next to the wood : combs comparatively even ; one-eighth part of comb surface soiled, or the entire surface slightly soiled.

No. 2.- Three-fourths of the total surface must be flled and sealed.

PHILADELPHIA.- As usual around the holidays, there is not much call for either comb or extracted honey. Prices remain about the same as the last quotations. Some odd lots having arriyed in the market in the last ten days has weakened the price of lower grades. We quote fancy white, 15@16; No. 1, 13@14; amber, 11@12. Extracted, white, 7@8; amber, 6@7. Beeswax, 26. We are producers of honey and do not handle on commission.

CINCINNATI.-The demand for honey at the present time is not good, owing to the approach of the holidays, when too many sweets are found on the market. On the other hand, the trade is well supplied with comb honey, that will require a considerable length of time to be consumed. We are offering extracted white clover in barrels and cans at 64@8. Amber, 534@6%. Fancy comb honey, 1242@14. Beeswax, 29@30.

51 Walnut St., Cincinnati, O.

TOLEDO.-The demand for comb honey is a little dull, as it usually is at this season of the year, and the prices have weakened a little. We quote fancy white comb at 14; No. 1, 13; with a very little demand for amber. Extracted white clover, in barrels, 64@7; in cans, 74@842. Beeswax, 27 and 28.

BOSTON.-During the holiday season the honey demand has been practically at a standstill. Stocks seem to accumulate rather than to diminish. While prices are practically as per our last, yet, on the whole, the tendency seems to be to a lower level. Our market today is practically as follows: Fancy white, 16; A No. 1, 15; No. 1, 14; with practically no demand for No. 2. tracted, from 6 to 8, according to quality.
