The remainder of the sliipments L0 principiílly to Toledo and Chiciigo. The shipment this year isabout one-third inore than last year's. In rates they can be got to Detroit at an expense oí 17.1c. per bushel, and to Chicago for 02.1 c. With a good market at Detroit, tliat city, of conrse, has the preference. Of the tliree largest shippers at this point, Benj, Day'a sale this season of raspberries and blackberries will be about 600 bushels; Evart II. Scott's, 400; and Dr. W. W. Nichols's, 310.

It is said that the earliest sliipments of raspberrles this season netted $0.50 per busliel. The berry business is evideutlj' a good one, and much better tliuii peseta gi'owiupc.
