The number of Quarantine cattle today is about the Binne as lost Monday , 7000 head , but there are more grass cattle included from Kansas , Oklahoma and the Pan handle than any day before this ueason. The market is steady on the best grass cattle and on good to choi'-e fed stuff , but medium and low grades are weak to 10 lower today. The market for some time has had this same tendency toward a widening OHt between Belling prices of the scarce and ex pensively produced dry lot cattle , nnd the less desirable grassers. This condition , of course , is common - mon each summer , but it has held off longer , and arrived more sud den this season than usual. Beef steers sold at SO last week , all choice steers $5.00 or more , top today $5.80 , bulk of fed steers $5 to | 5 GO , top yearlings $5.40 , heifers - ers $5.25 , and the market on these high grades 10 to 15 cents above a week ago , whereas , medium and common cows and grass steers range 10 to 25 cents lower for the week , bulk of cows $2.50 to $ o.75 , grass steers , including quaran tines , $3.25 to $1.05. Veals > : re 25 cents lower today , which repre sents their loss for a week , best ones $ -1.50 to $5.25. Packers made big cattle buy last Tuesday , 11,000 head for slaughter here , heaviest single day's purchase sincje last November. Stackers and feeders are dull , about like u week ago , $3.25 to $1 for bulk of sales. This trade will improve.as receipts of this class will be heav ier , and buyers can figure more intelligently on their needs each week. Hogs made a new high mark last week $0.724 , but did not make as much gain as circumstances seemed to warrant. Packers broke prices 5 to 10 cents after the open ing Thursday , and managed to hold the situation in hand balance of week. Prices are stronger to day on a supply of 0000 head , top $0.70 , bulk of sales $0.00 to $0.70. Light hogs now sell equal to butchers and heavies , few of the latter coming. Run last week was only -10,000 head , and this and every other condition of I , the trade points to higher prices , j Sin-op receipts last week 22,000 head , run 10,000 today. The market has had a weak tone for ten days , loss last week 10 to L'fi cents. Buyers stocked up the previous week , when receipts were heavy , and , further , claim mutton trade is bad in the East. Smaller applies are expected next few veeks. Market is steady today , print , ' lambs $7 to $7.150 , muttons ii.SOto $0.25 , ewes $1,75 to $ (5-50 ( , took sheep and breeding ewes rom the range. $ . ? . ( ? r > to $ l.t > 0 , no oats last week.

LAST ROUNDUP OF HORSES Wild Equities of Washington Plains Will Uo Corralled nnd Branded. Seattle , Wash. There Is to bo n roundup of 10,000 wild horses which roam the plains south of the Great , Northern tracks In the Columbia river | > asln. They will bo branded and many > r them sold , Between COO nnd 000 rid ers will take part , starting from 15ph- rata. rata.This This will bo the last great roundup n the northwest , for the settlement of astern Washington him iiuulu It Impos sible for BtocUmcn to raise range horses. The big stockmen will continue In tliu justness with their Inclosed pastures , .nit the majority will gradually go out : > f business. Toby Klclmrds , probably the heaviest : i\vner of these horses , claims -I.COU licad. Other growers have hundreds of liorsos on the range. Sonic of thorn Have been branded , but most , of tbo torses have never felt the sting of the ron. I As the horses are driven into eorrala , ioeated at convenient points on the prairie , each of the owners will have o cut out his own. It Is customary in . these roundups for the unbrandcd | lorses to bo sold at auction und the proceeds divided pro rata. This plan will probably bo followed In the 12ph- rata roundup. There arc thousands of well-bred lorses running wild In the eastern Washington ranges. The original herds were of common cayuses , but stockmen md settlers have for years been turning loose thoroughbreds and highly-bred farm horses to roam with the wild ani mals. The result has been that the class of horses has been raised rapidly and it Is believed hundreds of horses will bo rounded up that will bo lit for any work when broken. A big party of Seattle men will go to Ephrata to take part In the roundup. A party of railroad men Is forming , and In addition Dr. Hartnagle , E. O. Jones , of the Lloyd Transfer company ; Arthur Bennett , editor of Speedway and Ken- icl , and others will make the trip. HENS WORKING FULL TIME. Fowls in Eight Counties of Missouri Lay Eggs Enough to Cover . the Country. Jefferson CJty , Mo. The state bu reau of labor and statistics has com pleted the compilation of returns from four more counties , showing the ship ments of surplus products during 1905 , in preparation for the bureau's forth coming annual report. These four counties are Adalr , Andrew , Bates and Benson. They contribute materially toward maintaining the glory of the Missouri hen , showing shipments of 796,000 pounds of dressed poultry , 5.-104.G2S pounds of live poultry , and 2,311,140 dozens of eggs , or a total of 7.073.CSO eggs. Within the four counties of Audrlan , Cooper , Callaway and Cole , which had previously been reported , thcso figures would be changed In this way. Dressed poultry , 5,832,302 pounds ; live poultry , j 17,7-11S0i ( pounds , and a total ship ment of poultry from the eight conn- tics of 23,57-1,108 pounds. Combined , the eight counties shipped C.9C3.8C2 dozens of eggs , or a total of S3.GC0.341 pggs , which Is something llko 21 times the population of the state of Missouri , or 7,202,957 more than the population of the United States by the census of 1890 , and the excess over that popula tion in Itself would give to each man , woman and child In Missouri more than eggs. The Missouri hen evidently Is spreading herself. Besides all this poultry and eggs , these eight counties shipped 8-1,99 ! ! pounds of feathers. FINDS $50,000 PAINTING. Hare Work of Art Discovered by New York Woman While Dusting. New York. Mrs. Louisa MaeNamara , who lives in the Bronx , a few days ago wiped the dust and grease off the pic ture that had hung over her kitchen range ever since she had possessed one , and found that she had a great mastcr- plcco that has been lost to the art world for many years. There has been excitement In the MaeNamara household over slnco the discovery was made. That It is a masterpiece is assured by the decision of an expert named Hcnzlnger , who de clares it is worth about $50,000. Mrs. MaeNamara has thought the matter over and decided that , as she lives in a frame house , and the great work might be lost to the world of art If a sudden fire should occur , she will ac cept the price if anyone ( "UK's forward to give it. The painting is supposed to bo by Lovera , French artist , who painted in the beglnlng of the seventeenth cen tury. The subject of the painting is "The Fortune Teller. " If cracks and the general appearance of age count for anything , there can belittle little doubt that the picture that Mrs. MaeNamara possesses Is old. Honor to Kenan.

Sakamoto , of the Japanese bat tleship Katorl , said at Liverpool the other day that if Englishmen would study the true nature of Japan and learn to understand the Japanese , the alliance would last forever and would insure the peace of the world. fair. SOME MODERN BUCCANEERS Scheme for Revolution in Panama That Was a Purely Business Enterprise. I happen to know of two Americans of position who had Inside Information of the conditions In Panama , and who sat In a room In the Now Wlllard In Washington , one night In the fall of 1903 , consummating plans for putting through the revolution , obtaining n charter from the now republic , and forming a company of capitalists , writes Capt. Lloyd Buchanan , in Llpp- Incott's Magazine , Mr. IMerpont Mor gan was to be asked to organize the company. The total cost of tbo invo lution was to bo under $150,000 , and all the equipment needed In addition to what the junta could supply wan A pair of moderately fast small steam ers , chartered , four six-Inch guns , with ammunition , and 50 Krag rides. The steamers and weapons were to bo handled by Americans and English men who had no special calling on rnrth. I have every reason to be- lluve that , If Mr. UooKovolL had failed to act as he did , and any private con cern had taken up the construction of the canal , a revolution would have gone ( off with an accuracy and style that has never been surpassed. But , unfortunately for art , Mr , HooBovolt did net. South America , Mexico and the West Indies are threaded everywhere by the trails of these adventurers of life. In Curacoa you can 11 ml hatch ing any sort of scheme you chooHO from a plan to smuggle n couple of bolts of silk and a case of champagne Into Venezuela , to a plot to overthrow a republic and putting a now dictator in Its capital. I mot thcro In the same day a ruined American gambler , beg ging his passage bade to the states , and the sons of Guzman Blanco , the banished ex-prcsldont of Venezuela. . The former stopped mo opposite n Dutch cigar store and told mo with' ' the most pointed frankness what ho wanted , but the latter , over tholr ciga rettes and long iced glasses , mourned evasively of exile and confiscated es tates in general. It Is , then , not for me to nay why they were frizzling on that sun-baked islet within 50 miles of the Venezuelan coast , when they might as we'll have been In the dear Paris that they know and love so well. But probably they knew and Castro. I think I did , too. HONOLULU POULTRY EXPERT Claims to Be Able to Predetermine the Sex and Pcrtility of an Egg. C. \ \Veatherwax , a chicken tnn- cler of Honolulu , claims ho has discov ered a process whereby ho can tell the sex of an egg and whether It will bo fertile or not. Wcatherwax has been experimenting with eggs since 1891 and Is now In a position to give the results of his Investigations to the world. Ho has used thousands of eggs In his ox- porlments and kept two 50-ogg Incu bators going all the time. He claims to bo able to tell whether the produce of an egg will bo a rooster ter or a hen , and if the chick has a fair chance to roach maturity. "I am willing to make a public tent with 100 eggs , " said Weatherwax , "In order to prove my assertions. The eggs may bo marked according to my prediction with an Indelible pencil before - fore being put in the Incubator. In nine cases out of ten it will bo found that I am right. " Mr. Weatherwax claims that ho Is the first white man to POHH < ' thl n1- markablc knowledge. Poultry papers arc unanimous In declaring that there Is no way of tolling a fertile egg be fore putting It In the Incubator. They maintain that oven If the egg be broken , the gvrm cannot bo seen with the naked oyo. Wcatherwax undertakes to teach the whole thing In five minutes. Ho de clares that no mechanical devices or chemicals arc usud. AWFUL DISEASE ON GUAM. Gnngrosn , Which Destroys Upper Part of Victim's Pace , Worse Than Leprosy. Gangrosa , a tropical disease more re pulsive than leprosy , has become so ; prevalent on the Island of Guam that Lieut. McNanice , U. S. N. , acting gov ernor of the Island , has recommended ' the establishment of a hospital for the isolation of the disease , which Is be lieved to be highly contagious. Ad miral Hixey , surgeon general of the navy , has approved the recommenda tion and It Is probable that a JD.oou hospital will bo erected Immediately near the leper hospital on the Island. Lieut. McNamee says the disease de- rtroys the upper part of tin face by slow ulceration and is inure horrible , both to the victim and ID his compan ions , than leprosy. As 400 cases have developed its isolation Is Imperative. Naval surgeons have investigated the disease in parts of South America ami the West Indies , and their reports in dicate that there can bo little doubt that it is a dlbtlpct malady , and ono which does not yield to the treatment given tuberculosis , leprosy and other diseases common to tropical countries. Oases of gangroua have been treated In New York which are beljeved to have come from Brazil and Panama. When News Heached Honolulu. The cable as It comes hero is ab breviated.

You ask a young mother what anil how situ feeds her baby , perhaps a year old , and ( pilto likely she will say : "Eight ounces of milk diluted with two of water ' Her utensils are kept with the most scrupulous care , the child fed with strict regularity , and still he la continually troubled with constipation , and while not ox- nctly ill , ho Is far from well. Why ; docs ho not thrlvo hotter ? No , he is not over fed. Ho Is un der watered. Th' ) milk should bo di luted fully ono-lnir. The load must have an adequate vehicle. baby , now 10 months old , takes . .trnrly ono teacup cf milk to a lend , hut It Is di luted with wato ; to ninhu nearly u pint , fed , of cournr , blood warm ; U is not unle to gl.'o cold food except In the smallest quantities under two years. Besides ho drinks ono-fourtu to one-third cup of cold water several oH during the day. Ho has some plain , solid food with his meals two or thrco times ti day , bread , crackers , Johnny cake.or s.imo plain cereal with out hulls. Ho Into no oatmeal , no veg etables , no sweets , but the moment the abundance of water Is neglected thcro In trouble. It In not the fats but the solids which clog the digestion. In all foods Irritation must Do avoided. But llrat , last and always quantities of water j must bo given to Insure health. It ban boon said that u baby mirrors for a "barrel" of water before It Is old enough to ask for U. Of cottrso , It makes more trouble and many morn napkins to wash , but It makes rosy cheeks and abounding vitality. Thla Is my experience with four unusually , fat , rosy children , If the baby Is taken ill , don't neglect the water ; It IB all the moro necessary J then. In colds , during the fovorlsli period , glvo cold Water and after that passes , If the child relishes it , hot water. In moaalcri and all dangerous fevers , glvo the water c.old , but feoil it with u teaspoon , A dozen spoonfuls every 15 or 20 minutes will often keep u fever below the danger point , ( u any acute stomach trouble caused by indiscretion In diet or hot weather , give half an hour or so after vomit ing . a cup of some cereal substitute for coffee , hot , without milk or sugar. Water IH what Jo needed , but plain hot water Is Kometlmes nauseating , while the ullght bitterness of the eoffoo substitute Is most acceptable and bo- sldcs , It has a Hini'.ll food valuo. Than , glvo nothing until the usual time bo- twccn meals ban elapsed , when glvo the uamo drink again. By time for the next meal after that the stomach will bo rested and the name drlnlc with milk and a very Httlo migar will bo nll-snfllclcnt. If possible , glvo no solid food until thp following day. If this treatment Is applied promptly the bowels bcliu ; moved If there Is the slightest need the first vomiting spell will probably bo the last. When teething , feed cold water with a spoon. You will bo surprised to see how eag erly the baby wi'l take It , and how much ho will want It cools the gums and fed In this way no quantity will do harm. The only harm water can do Is to chill tin stomach , which it will not do nnliw taken quickly In quantities. Orange Judd Farmer. SOME IRONING HINTS.
