WOOL. Says the Detroit Free Press : The season of wool clipping is now here and woo] is lieooming quite an important factor in the commercial world. The farmers n.l sluip raisers throughout the state are jusl in the midst of the clipping season, and 1' the end of this week a great niajority of the sneep will be sheared and tho erop of Michigan will be almost fully known. Michigan of late years bas put into the market abont U, E00,000 pounds of woni and is looked upon as an important state as regardt wool growing. The samo paper publishes an interview wit li Mr. Thimas McGraw, one of the : est boyera of wool in the state. Tliat gentleman says; "This yenr's clip, will, [estímate, be fully 1,000,000 pounds !cs than that of last year. Last year's iiii amonnted to 9,000,000 pounds, but that was a good year and ibis does not come up to it. My buyers have just gone out into the state, and from the few reports received up to to day 1 can hardly teil you whether tli" farmera are going to sellatonceor hold the clip. As a rule it pays the farmois to Bell at once, when competion is brisk. as it always is just after clipping season, but many of them do not see it in that way and hold f or higher prices, which seldom come. The prices paid so farto my buyers are from 20c to 25c per lb., but the great majority of purchases are effeeted at from 23 to 24c per pound. By the end of this week I will be able to give you taller partieulars ou the subject oL the Michigan wool erop."
