* MARKET LETTER
From Our Regular Kansas City
Stock Yards Correspondent
Kansas City Stock yards,Oct. 11*
The market last week was very
uneven, opening with a good
gain tirst of the week, but clos
ing with all of the advance lost,
and in the case ot stockers and
feeders, a little more. The run
today is 23,000 head, slightly
less than a week ago, but still
indicating that it will be a few
weeks yet before the range cat
tle receipts cease to form the
bulk of the total supply. The
market today is weak on steers,
and 5 to 10 lower on cows, the
decline mainly because of a big
run and lower prices at Chicago
today. Stockers and feeders
are weak today also, as the dry
weather is having a bad effect
on the demand from various
points in Kansas and Missouri.
Reports of rain in Kansas to
day, and indications of rain for
Missouri tonight and tomorrow,
are of some benefit to the mar
ket today, but this week will be
a good opportunity to secure
cheap cattle, as there was jlOOO
more stockers and feeders held
over from last week than at the
end of the previous week, and
as great a number as at the end
of any week this fall. Some
show steers sold at $8 last week,
but top on the open market,out
side of the Harbaugh steers
from Nebraska on Monday,
which were on the show order,
and brought $8, was $7,130, and
only a few cattle above $(>.90.
Grass steers are selling at $13.40
to $4.90, cows $2.00 to $3.60, top
cows $4.25, top heifers $5.25,
bulls at $2 to $3.40, calves $3.50
to $6.50, stockers $2 80 to $4.30,
feeders $3.50 to $4.60.
Hog prices declined another
50c last week, making the loss
for two weeks $1, market $1.35
lower than three weeks ago.
when the big decline set in The
run is 12000 today, market 10 to
20 lower, top $5.70, bulk $5 to
$5.60. Average weight is light
est ever known here, less than
180 lbs, but quality is fairly
good, 'considering the light
weight. Receipts are running
twice as heavy as at this time
last year, and heavier than ever
before at this point in October,
but local packers are buying
them iree.y, and prices here are
above competing markets.
Sheep recepts are smaller
than a lew weeks ago, and
prices are slightly lower than a
week ago. Packers claim the
outlet has narrowed down, but
there has been no break in the
market, ouly a slight weakness.
Run is 11000 head here today,
market about steady, no choice
lambs here, top $5.50, fair to
good lambs $5 to $5.40, yearl
ing’s $4.40. wethers $1.30, ewes
$4.20. Demand from the coun
try is large, but prices are not
more'steady with a week ago,
lambs $4.35 to $4.Hj, stock and
feeding sheep $3.50 to $4.10,
breeding ewes up to $4 40.
The State Journal is trying
awful hard to get people to give
that daily a trial. Its offer now
is to send the paper from date
until January 1, 1909, for only
50c without Sunday, or 75c with
Sunday. The publishers feel
sure that anyone who tries The
State Journal will stick. How
ever, they have adopted an ab
solute rule of stopping every
subscriber when his term is out.
It there is anything that makes
a tnan mad it is to subscribe for
a city daily and then have to
tigut with the publishers to get
it stopped or pay for something
he doesn’t want. The Journal’s
new plan will be popular.
Boys and Girls to Omaha
Prof. E. C, Bishop, deputy state
superintendent ot public instruc
tion lias announced that the con
veution of the Nebraska Boys’
agricultural society amt the Ne
braska Girls' Domestic Science
association, will meet in Omaha,
December 11 during the National
Corn exposition. More boys and
girls in Nebraska are interested in
these associations and the work
they are doing than ever before
and the most conservative esti
mates place the number who wilt
attend the meetings of the young
people in Omaha at between 2,'>0U
The oppprtunity offered of at
tending the meetings and at the
same time seeing the National
Corn Exposition is an unusual
one, "as it will show the young
people what it is possible to ac
complish along agricultural and
industrial lines of education. They
will see the results of the work
they are doing in advance, as it
were, and the exposition will
doubtless be an inspiration to the
boys and girls of Nebraska.
Prof. Bishop also announced
thirty-four counties in Nebraska
have now arranged for local con
tests and lectures and the Univer
sity of Nebraska has detailed a
number of competent judges to
assist in handling the local con
tests. From the prize corn in the
different contests, the counties
will select their samples for entry
in the various classes at the Na
tional Corn Exposition in Omaha.

HAD QUIT WORK
READY TO GIVE UP IN DESPAIR
Restored to Health By Vlnol
"I was sick, run-down and Anally
had to give up work. After trying
a number of remedies and several phy
sicians, 1 was just about ready to give
up In despair. I saw Vlnol ad
vertised and decided to try It,
and It has done more good for
me than all other means combined. It
has built me up and restored my
strength until I now feel twenty years
younger, and am able to attend to my
work again as usual.” Job JeavonB,
103G Lind street, Wheeling, W. Va.
The reason Vlnol Is so successful in
such cases Is because It contains tonic
iron and all of the strengthening
blood-making and body-building ele
ments of cod liver oil, but no oil.
Vinol Is unexcelled as a strength
creator for old people, delicate children,
weak, run-down persons, and after
sickness—and Is the best known rem
edy for coughs, colds and bronchitis.

Facts About the
Great Majestic Range
It is the only range in the world made
of Malleable and Charcoal Iron.
It has, beyond any question of a doubt,
the largest and best reservoir.
It uses about half the fuel used on
other ranges, and does better work by far.
The Majestic All Copper Nickeled Res
ervoir heats the water quicker and hotter
than any other. It is the only reservoir
with a removable frame.
The Charcoal Iron Body of the Great
Majestic Range lasts three times as long as
a steel body.
Being made of non-breakable material,
there is practically no expense for repairing
As for baking, it is perfection; not only
for a few months, but for all time to come.
A Great Majestic Range lasts three
times as long as a cheap range, but it don t
cost three times as much.
PROOF—We don’t ask you to take our word ior
any of the above statements, but if you call at our store,
a man from the factory, where Majestic Ranges are
made, will prove to your satisfaction that these are ab
solute facts, and will show you many more reasons why
the Great Majestic is absolutely the best money can buy.
