New Soring Goods
'.'Magnificent showing new goods, lowest prices,"
and many such phrases are always heard at the be
ginning of the season. We might add, "Never
before have we been so well prepared." We take it
for granted that the buying public of Red Cloud ex
pect us to be better prepared with each succeeding
season, evidenced by something more than mere
words. We cordially invite an inspection.

hero and 111,000 at Chicago looked like
tho big runs wore bore. Today, how
ever, supply is only ,000 here, and
moderate at other points, and tho mar
ket is steady to stroug, as buyers real
ized they would have to got out and
got some cattlo quickly, or homo of
their orders would not be filled.
A good many stoors sold last weok
at S3 2) to r.7i, whilo top yestorday
was $5.50, and today S5.5J5. Tho decline
is not this much, though, on tho best
cattle, as stoors of tho same quality as
tho J5.G0 to 85.73 cattlo last week have
not boon otforod this week. A good
many stoors sold above $5 last weok,

and feedors has been light for some
time, and except fof a slightly en
