BALLAST LINCOLN LINE.
] Northwestern Will Improve Roadbed ;
From Fremont to Lincoln Soon.
The Northwestern will begin robnl-
lasting their track from Fremont to
I Lincoln within the next few days so

passage of the heaviest passenger lo
comotives. It is said that heavier
steel will also he laid at the same
time. Eight gravel trains will bo put
In commission to do the now work.
The gravel will bo brought from near
This improvement In the track Is
made probably in the face of the ex
pected competition from the now
Great Northern line passing through
Fremont. This in connection with the
Burlington can bo made quite effec ;
tive competition and the Northwest
ern is doing now what hns been ru-
moral ns n possibility for a number
of years. There is also a report cur -
rent that the Plntto river bridge near
Fremont will bo replaced with a mod
ern steel structure. The present
bridge is scarcely strong enough to
carry the heavier rolling stock of
such n train as the Northwestern
celved severe competition from the
Great Northern and Burlington bo

during the winter nnd early spring ,
nnd now there Is none to bo had until

' keepers declnre that good country but-
tor has become scarcer and scarcer
every yenr nnd they often Imvo diffi
culty in filling their orders , although
the conditions at present nre far
worse than usual. The farmers nre

cents , when sold over the counter.

NATIONAL LIVE STOCK COMMIS
| View of the Live Stock Markets at
South Omaha , C. A , Mallory ,
South Omaha. March 8. Wo would
like very much to hnvo something
new and Martling to say about the cat
tle market this week but conditions
prevent , and although outside prices
have been maintained , the supply and
demand have been so nearly balanced
that fluctuations have been small and
changes of little Importance.
Wo are pleased , however , to note
n continuance of the undertone in
strength In the cattle market , and as
the figures sho'w a considerable In
crease In the number of cattle mar
keted this winter compared with lost ,
and the fact that our reports show a
considerable shortage In the number
of cattle on feed at this time compared - ,
pared with ono year ngo , we cannot
help believing that prices for fat cat-
The Wonderful Growth
Is duo to Its
Perfect Quality 1'f
Used in Millions
tie will Improve us the season advanc
Cf . Wo naturally expect a larger per
centage of good cattle during the next
sixty or ninety days which will mean
n narrower although higher average
range In prlcea. Strictly choice well
matured cattle are not plentiful in
nny of the markets nnd these cnttlc
command n good premium , nnd not
withstanding the fact that the situa
tion favors higher average prices Int
er , wo generally believe It good judg
ment to market stock as fnst ns It la
properly matured. .
The western liny fed cattle nro nrrl
riving on a little moro liberal acalo
and wo look for larger supplies of this
class during the next two months ,
The demand Is good on both packing
and feeder accounts and we believe
these cattle will continue to sell well
compared with corn fed steers.
The demand for all kinds of butcher
stock continues good and prices this
week are about the best of the season. |
We look for moderate supplies of
butcher stock until we got grass cat
tle and see no reason why we should
not have a steady or stronger market
In the near future. Good to choice de
horned stockers and feeders are want
ed at outside prices , this class selling
from $1.2 , " to $1.50 ; fair to good , $4.00
to $1.25 ; horned cattle 15 to 20 cents
less. Common to fair stockers nnd
feeders suffered a decline of 10 to 20c
and are selling from $3.GO to $1.00 ,
the light weights selling at the low
prices. Wo have been buying a good
many stockers nnd feeders for our
friends nnd customers during the past
two or three weeks and again suggest
that any who are In need of cattle
this spring should communicate with
us as soon as convenient.
Wo quote fair to good fat beef
steers $1.GO to $4.90 ; good to choice ,
$1.90 to $5.I5 ! ; choice toe xtra , $5.35
to $5.75. Good to choice cows and
heifers , $1.25 to $1.50 ; fair to good ,
$ ! ! .25 to $1.25 ; common to fair butch
er stock , Including canners and cut
It ters , $3.25 to $3.75.
| We look for fairly liberal receipts
for f the balance of this week and next
and do not look for much permanent
improvement but we do believe In
higher prices later on. .
Hogs. If there has been any ques-
tlon In the minds of any of our read
ers about the hog situation and mar
ket the continued strength and ad-
vnnce In prices would certainly con
vince any reasonable person that the
National" understand their business.
The week opened with moderate re
ceipts all around and with a higher
provision market prices made a now
record for this year , the bulk selling
here at $0.15 to $0.30. On Wednesday
with liberal receipts In Chicago a re
action of 10 to 15c was brought about
in which the river markets wore
forced to sympathize , but the provi
sion market Is In strong hands and [
these declines all quickly recovered.
The Omaha market most of the time
was well in line with all of the other
markets although on Wednesday fell
out of line 5 to lOc. Heavy hogs still
command a premium and from our
reports wo are satisfied that the avail
able supply of heavy hogs Is not large ,
and while wo look for continued free .
marketing of hogs , under present con
ditions wo have confidence In an ac
tive and strong market for the near
future at least. The bulk of the hogs
are selling hero from $0.10 to $0.25.
The provision market is still lower
tlmn the hog market and we again .
suggest that after such a continuous
advance and with prices comparative
ly high that it Is the part of wisdom
to realize that there are two sides to
evqry market some time nnd that It
is a good plan to go slow before dis
counting the market very rapidly.
Wo invite our readers' attention to
the telegraphic live stock and other
reports published by the Norfolk Daily
Sheep and lambs. The most severe
storm of the season for this section Is
accountable for lighter receipts of
sheep and lambs at all markets the
first few days of the week.
The extreme outside prices do not
show much change , but the general
market averages about 10 centa high
er than last week's close. Ono hunch
of extra good dressing lambs shows a
gain of 20 cents. Best lambs are sellIng -
Ing from $6.40 to $ G.CO. yearlings , 5 %
to G. Export wethers $5.75 ot $5.90 ;
owes , $5.30 to $5.40 ; wethers for do
mestic trade , $5.30 to $5.75 ; ewes ,
$4.90 to $5.25 ; fair to good owes , $4.25
to 4.75. The range of ewe values is
still wide , and will continue so. Feed-
era having ewes on feed that have
been bred can realize much moro
from them If they will give us full
particulars regarding them before
shipping , as the demand for thla class
of sheep is better tlmn ever and largo
numbers are wanted by farmers at
prlcea ranging from $4.50 to $0.00 per
head , according to quality and age. '
On the average ewe this is bettor
than aelling for mutton as buyers arc
discriminating against all ewes that
are heavy with lamb.
The season Is so far advanced that
there : will bo practically no real win
ter weather outside of occasional flur
ries , and ns warm weather Is not good
for making sheep fat , we advise those
who have good shearing stuff and are
prepared to properly care for them af
ter shearing to shear , as the outlook
for good prices for wool has never
been better. Several sales wore made
tc Boston buyers last week at 30
cents for lamb's wool , delivery being
made In Nebraska. This is the high
est price paid for wool In many years.
Before shearing , wo advise cutting out
your fnt stuff and shipping them.
We do not look for any unusual de
velopments in the near future regard
ing sheep and Iamb values ; there Is
only a poor prospect of nny permanent
improvement In the lamb markets ; in
fact , the trade is weak and feeders
can expect still lower prices during
the next 30 days.
The fat sheep situation Is in good
shape. There are not many good jj
sheep on feed , especially wethers. j ]
Export buyers are having hard times
In filling their orders and Pacific
coast butchers have been forced to
come to Nebraska for supplies. Wo
are in close touch with this Pacific
coast jind export business and feeders
who wish their sheep sold for deliv
ery west or east will find It to their
advantage to communicate with us.
As yet , no lambs are being bought
for export or to go west.
Eastern feeders are still sharp com
petitors at all markets for all good
shearing lambs of fair flesh at prices
ranging from $ G to G.50 at the Mis
