The past week has been extremely
hot. The only corn that has suffered
is corn that was too thick, too weedy,
or on sandy soil. Two-thirds of the

a hard time parade. All automobiles
instead of heading the parade will
bring up in the rear, showing hard
times in the front and prosperity in
the rear. Plan your float now. Pon’t
wait until the last minute. Build up
your float in your mind and it wWl
not be so hard to decide on the way
and the kind at the last minute. Re
member the day and the date. The
first Monday in September or Labor
day. By the time I get home it will
be only a few days until the day of
the pieinc. This year you will get
two bottles of pop for five cents and
two ice cream cones for five cents.

Sheep Somewhat Lower; Offerings
Large. Feeders Sell Steady Prices.
Uii.on Stock Y’uids, South Omaha,
i Nebr., August 1, 1916.—The week
j opened with a liberal run of cattle,
! some 244 loads, or about 6,100 head.
| Prices were steady for desirable offer
j ings of all weights. Some choice long
j yearlings brought $9.75. Bulk of tho
| fair to good 1,000 to 1,250-pound cat
j tie sold around $8.85@ 9.35. Supplies
of cows and heifers were limited, and
with a broad demand for them, prices
were firmly held. No corn feds of
any consequence are coming and
prices are around $7.50@ 8.50. Strictly
good to choice grass stock is selling
around $6.60@7.35.
Quotations on cattle: Good to
choice beeves, $9.50@10.00; fair to
good beeves, $8.90@9.35; common to

' 12.00; bologna bulls, $5.50@6.25; beef
j bulls, $6.25@7.25.
uue to me excessive runs ana snarp
: breaks at other markets, gave buyers
a valid excuse for pounding prices
here. Some of the early shipping pur
chases were made around 5@10c low
I er. The packers bought most of their
hogs at about a 15c lower basis than
at the close of last week. A good
share of the packers hogs sold at
$9.15@9.25, many strings selling at
| $9.20. There was a fair showing of
i the good to choice lights, and butch
ers on up, the top being $9.70.
Receipts of sheep and lambs for
- Monday were the largest since the
! range season opened, some 63 loads
| or about 17,000 head were reported
in. Owing to the heavy supply pack
ers made their early bids on a 15c to
some instances a quarter lower basis.
Bulk of the lambs sold at $10.50®
10.65, nothing going above the latter
figure. The supply of native mutton
on hand here was very large, and
prices were weak to 10@15c lower.
Yearlings and wethers stopped at
$7.70. One bunch of feeding lambs
sold at $9.55, which is a nickel higher
than any ever sold here before today.

With com above 50 cents hogs eat
their heads off very quickly. The
hog that takes two or three months
to get on full feed never brings you
! a profit.
When you are ready to put your
shoats on feed, begin with the B. A.
Thomas Hog Medicine. Use regularly
and watch your shoats round out
int o fat hogs in nine months—hogs
; going well over 200 pounds and as
high as 240 pounds. Figure the av
: erage feeding and you will see why
the B. A. Thomas medicine is a good
investment. Try feeding out your
hogs on this plan and if you are not
more than pleased, we will refund
i the cost of the medicine. —J. J. Slo
