Wzsoomm DAYxzz's AsOCMAIOJ. During a portion of that time cheese frequently odd at ten and eleven cents. Butter continued steady at thirty-two for a number of weeks, until April 19th, when it dropped to thirty, and then its course was downward until June 7th, when it sold at eighteen and one-half to nineteen. This was the lowest point reached by but- ter during the year. It then again advanced, slowly for a time, and then again rapidly, until December 13, when it reached forty- five cents, which was the highest price attained on the board for many years. After that date the price receded until the close of the year, when it rested at forty to forty-two oents. There were no regular males of cheese reported during the meet- ings held May 17th, May 24th, May 31st and June 7th. On the 14th of June, cheese sold at five to eight cents and from that date it advanced in price until September 13, when 1,685 boxes were mold at twelve to twelve and one-half cents. This was the highest price reached by cheese during the year, with the exception of one ale of fifty boxes full creams, at thirteen cents, October 4th. From the table published below it will be seen that the total transactions are far in excess of what they ever were before in any one year, and in number of boxes of cheese and aggregate value of butter and cheese are greatly in excess of the mles of the Utics, New York, for the year 1881, or of the Little Falls Boards for the me period. At the former the males were two hundred and forty thousand four hundred and seventy-six boxes, aggregating fourteen million four hundred and forty-four thousand seven hum- dred and sixty pounds, and mold for $1,615,184.17. At Little Falls, the males were two hundred and fifty-three thousand and twenty- five boxes, aggregating fifteen million one hundred and eighty- one thousand and five hundred pounds, and sold for $1,653,788.34. It will be observed that the choese sold on the Elgin Board ex- oeeded either of t*e above in boxes, but fell short two to three millions of pounds. 134
