Congressman Pollard has made
arrangements with the Agricul
tural Department to continue the
demostration work in spraying
fruit trees in this district that
was begun last year. Samples of
sprayed and unsprayed fruit were
shown at the State Fair last fall

this work. The following or-
chardists will cooperate with the
Department in the several coun
Michael Meliisa. Verdon.
Albert Steak , Burchard.

Ira E. Atkinson , Havclock.
Nelson Overtoil , Nebraska City.
Experiments will also be car
ried on in the development ot an
improved variety of corn and
also in developing a variety of

give a better yield and be rust
resistant. Still otherexperiments
will be made with forage crops ,
emmer and winter barley. The
former is said to be similar to
alfalfa. The following parties

ment in these cereal experiments :

KnnsnsCity Stock Yards , March
25,1907. Last week closed with
heavy beef steers dull , and 15 to
20 cents lower for the week ,
medium weights 5 to 15 lower ,
while steers under 1250 pounds
remained steady and in strong
demand. Cows , heifers and but
cher stuff generally sold stronger
toward the close of the week ,
stockers and feeders not much
changed. The supply is 13,000
head today , market steady on
heifers , calves and the best coun
try grades , other cattle 5 to 10
lower. Hot weather is respon
sible for the slump in demand for
heavy steers , and a break of 1 to
3 cents per pound in hide values
last week and declining markets
for fat and other by-products
were other bad features. Ap
parently there remains a large
percentage of fed cattle yet to be
marketed in the near future , and
little prospects is held out for any
gain in prices at present. Re
ceipts for March so far show a
substantial increase over same
period last March , although
March last year held the record
for that month in cattle receipts
here. Choice steers are extremely
scarce today , bulk of sales going
at S4.75 to $5.25 , with prime
steers worth " $5.75 to $ f > .25
Spring like weather always shifts
the demand to lighter cuts of
beef , favoring heifers and year-
ing most. Cows sell at $2.75 to
$4.50. heifers$3.75 to $5.25 , year-
ings last week up to $5.40.
Veal calves sell at Sfi.OO to $7.00 ,
lieavy calves $3.50 to $4.50. bulls
$3.25 to $4.25. stockers $3.75 to
$4.90 , feeders $4.f 0 to $5.20.
Although hog prices are going
down rapidly , and regularly , and
the run is liberal , there does not
seem to be any panic among ship
pers to get in before the bottom
! s reached The quality aver
ages as good as could be desired
iny time. Conservative traders
look for a check in the decline
when $6.00 is reached , and not
much before th'at time. 'Run is
JOOO today , market 10 lower ,
ate sales sometimes worse than
that , top $ ( > .15 , bulk of sales Sfi 05
tof .15. Heavy hogs are now
2/4 to 5 cents below medium and
Run of sheep and lambs is 13-
000 today , market steady. The
market declined 10 to 20 cents
last week , due mainly to mean
markets elsewhere , as the supply
was moderate here , at 37,000.
Top lambs today sold at $7.80 ,
other sales at $7.65 , against $7.75
to $7.85 last Monday. Wethers
are worth $5.60 to $6.00 , yearlings
$6.15 to$6.70. ewes $5.35 to $5.60.
