BADGLEY RIEDEL & MEYER 34 WEST 28 ST., NEW YORK. ^. % t. o a n°i 2&T^ ST. o o ^^ /o ^/: Mention The Reylew when yoo write. parent during the week, regardless of the hustle and bustle within the stores. • The buying seemed to be in the less expensive plants and flowers, the higher grades moving but slowly. One of the biggest surprises was the entire lack of call for snapdragon, which had been nursed into perfection for Easter by many of the growers and which came into the market with 4-foQt and 5-foot stems. Gardenias moved but fairly well until Saturday evening, when they grew in popularity. The ruling price at wholesale was $2, and apparently the cause for the slow moving of these flowers was the fact that they could be had from the street venders at 10 cents each at retail. Carnations brought $5 and $6 per hundred, as against $2 and $3, and even less, prior to the beginning of the week. Roses sold a{ from $4 to $20, the red roses bringing extremely high prices. Various Notes. Inquiry among the various florist* proved that all were satisfied. Many found it hard to obtain the large num- ber of additional employees the extra business demanded. Gude Bros. Co. required the services of nearly eighty delivery boys to move the indi- vidual orders, while the greenhouses sent in more than twenty-five men to help the store force. At Kramer's it was impossible to find out how many extra bicycle boys he had. "Too busy to talk," was all that could be obtained from Mr. Kramer. George Shaffer^.
