The Nut crop
--Shellbarks and chestnuts were never more abundant in this section of the country than at the present time.
The country stores in the ‘"shellbark region"’ are fairly groaning under the weight of nuts stored away on the story next to the roof.
At some stores bushels upon bushels of them have been received.
The price paid for shell, barks has been from 50 cents to $1.25 a bushel, and chestnut from five to eight cents a quart.
The running price up the country last week, for shellbarks, was eighty cents, and chestnuts $1.50.--Harrisburg (Pa.) Telegraph.
