BUYERS AND SELLERS OF STOCK The Hoc Yards on a Bu y Mbrninj ; Through the Cattle Pens Mount ed Dealers Welching Stock- Personal Description. The Iilvo Stoolc Market. j VERY stranger in a large city , ns a matter of course , , visits the stock or produce exchange , andfrom the vis- ra' gallery , gazing down jupon the animated scone -below , is told that the ex cited men , the sound of whoso voices produce a veritable Babel , are buying and selling stocks , grain or provisions , nnd he goes away with his mind so in delibly impressed with what ho has iBoou that over after the mention of n market will bring before his gaze the contest of the bulls and bears "on change' ' or in the provision pit. Perhaps no ono who visits the live 'Block market at South Omaha for the first time anticipates seeing a repetition of the scenes in the New York stock exchange or the Chicago provision tnarkut , but ho has boon told that stock la sold to live highest bidder and he may xpeot to see a crowd of men actively engaged in making bids for stock. .Honco the question , so frequently asked > 'ty strangers on entering the yards : It- * "Whoro is the stock sold ? " The answer is , "Everywhere in the yards where a buyer and seller happen to meet and agree on terms. " But still there are , CKUTAIN POINTS In the yards which , porhuns , bv com mon consent , have como to be places of rendo/.vous foi ; the buyers and sellers When not engaged in looking at stock. A btranger arrives at the yards nt 8 o'clock iti the morning , rather an early hour for a pleasure trip , but if ho wore < to wait until later the market would bo over and nothing to see but long rowe of empty pens.

These goods are 25c and 50c under price. and the salesmen are being posted. At the ringing of A TKLEPI1ONK HULL a buyer quickly secludes himself in the telephone box or house , which every packer has located conveniently in the yards , and hero receives his orders for his morning's work. No ono would imagine , from the disinterested look on his face as ho reappears that upon him devolves the responsibility of making transactions during the coining hour that would mean hundreds of dollars of loss or gain to'his employer , as his judgment might be good or bad , nor could the shrewdest salesman detect from that look what his orders have boon. Perhaps his chief has said , "Buy every hog you can got , as low as you can , but buy the hogs , " or por- haos ho has said : "Do not buy a hog unless you can get a reduction of 10c per hundred from yesterday's prices. " It is nil the same to the buyer. Ho stops out , cool and collected ; it would not do to show eagerness , for TUB SALESMAN would at once detect that ho was anx ious for the hogs , und would put up the price on him ; nor docs the oxpcrionced salesman show ovorlmsto. It is like the fencing of skilled swordsmen before coming to close blows. "What have you got:1" : inquires a buyer , and the salesman walks away with him to show him the different loads of hogs which ho has for sale. The buyer looks them over , inquires the price , buys them if it is satisfac tory , if not , signifies what ho would bo willing to pay for them , and then goes with the next salesman at hand. Meanwhile , the 11 rat salesman looks up the other buyers and gets their bid. In less time than it takes to de scribe it the crowd of men who wore waiting for the market to open has molted away , and the stranger and hie guide nro the only ones remaining. But ono by ono the buyers and sellera COMK STRAGGLING HACK , until Iho crowd has assumed its former proportions. If the market is higher ana the buy ers have shown a willingness to pay tl'ic prices asked , perhaps u good proportion ofnllthohogH in the yard have been sold during the ilrst twenty minutes , but if the buyers have not wanted the hogs very badly and have only boon trying to "boar the market , " bidding lower prices , perhaps no trading to speak of has boon done. Then it is n question of uorvo or stick-to-it-ivcness , eit or the saloomen must come down on tbo.'nrloos asked or the buyers must raise their bids und which one will give in depends largely upon the opening ol the eastern provihion market. If porli ig reported higher , perhaps the buyers will receive fiosh orders that will cause them to raise their bids , but if lower , the salesmen will probably have to give in nnd will sell to the buyers who made them the best bids. Meanwhile there IE nothing to db but to await the outcome , though buyers and Hollers mav bo 11UUNINO WITH ANXIJCTV they show no signs of it but rather by a cheerful look seek to smother the fooling of responsibility. Jokes arc freely exchanged , some of thorn pretty hard ones , but there is.no use in being offended , the only recourse is to give the tormentor a worse ono. and u shoul BOOB up ns a good point is made. To hoar thorn bno might think they were all Bill Nyos and that each ono was editing n Boomerang of his own.thougli n very large percentage of the jokes arc meaningless to one unacquainted witli the men and not on the inside of the business. Before you are hardly aware of U the crowd IIUB dispersed , a buyer has ro < ooivcd a frcBh order or there has been soroo change in the situation , and the buyers and sellers are again trying tc iinnnhnnnil MO MvlAiu ; A "These goods we have in four grades , nnd nil widths from AA to E.

If they do not succeed in mak ing a trade the whole crowd wllH > e buck again before long and the same or sim ilar scenes will be re-enacted. But as a general thing the hogs are all sold by the middle of the forenoon. After the trading is all over comes the "WKIOHING " UP , which is by no moans an uninteresting feature of the mbrkot. The yards are laid out on the same general plan as a city ; the pens , whicli might bo likened to factories and mercantile houses , are built in blocks , and each pen opens into a street , or alloy as it is always called , which runs at right angles throughout the yards. As soon as a salesman has sold put ho gives his assistant orders as to whom the hogs are to bo weighed up to and dircctlv the word "koy-oh. ' ' is heard in the loudest voice the culler can command , repeated again and again until the key man ap pears , unlocks the jrato of the pen and turns the hogs out into the alleywhence they are driven toward the scales. Others are calling , "Koy-oh , " and soon the alley is full of hogs , all moving slowly on in Iho same direction , but each load is kept separate. Every time a load is weighed over the scales the whole procession mo\es up a little fur ther , until the bcalo house gate has closed on the last load. When Tin : iioas KMKHOB from the scale house they are the prop erty of the buyers , and are turned into largo pens until they are wanted at tno packing houses. As a rule the market has barely closed before the droves pur chased by the different packers nro on the way to the slaughter house. To one who has never soon more than the fractional part of a hog , ay represented by a pork tenderloin or a cased ham hanging in the marketa thousand hogs being driven along the alloy to the packing houses is quite a surprising Bight , and one that invariably brings forth the remark : "What a lot of thorn ? Whore do they nil come from , and where nro they going:1" : When a thou sand ho < rs scorn so many it is hard to ruali/.o that a million and a quarter hogs passed through that sumo alley last year. But the market is closed and the hog alloys are deserted. While cattle are sold , weighed and delivered to the buyer in the aamu general - oral way as the nogs , still there are Home points of special interest that uro well worth a visit. The scone IN THIS CATTLK AhMSYS is certainly more picturesque the buyers and sellers uro mounted on horses , as the distance around the yards is too great to go on foot and then , ton , a great many of the cattle have no ro- suuut for a man on foot and consider him only a fit ornament to decorate the tips of their horns , us several men have found to their sorrow during the past year. When there is a good demand for cattle and everyone is buying freely the eight is certainly very animated. Mounted men are riding hero anu there , usually in couples , urging their Dorses into a sharp trot , or even into a gallop , nnd droves of cattle uro being rushed through the alloys , urged on by loud shouts and cracking of whips. To keep a cool head and make no mis take amid nil this hurry and bustle re quires u long experience and u general adaptability to the business in hand. Many of these men have followed the buBiucas a life-time. They began when Now York was tiie great live stock mar ket , nnd , whou the center of the trade moved to Albany , they went with it , und kept up with it in its westward march , stopping successively at Buffalo , Chicago , nnd ut last at Oiimhu.

"Twas the WmrttiR Brolce Her Heart The PntliBtloTSulcirteora Vermont Mnklnn Found Them in Their Graves. . lilttlc Romances. The absolute diuorco granted to Mag gie Mitchell , the popular actress , has again set ugog the gossips touching her first love affair , which has about it the flavor of romance and adventure. Away back in the sixties , when the war was under way , Washington city was an armed camp. The city then hrtd not emerged from its old lethargy , and the invasion of a great army in the midst of its people , while it amazed those lethe the manor born , gave thorn the first full realization of wlmt genuine activity and bustle meant. It was at thib period , too , that Maggie Mitchell , un actress , was at her best. Maggie loved a horse. It was her w.ont before the him was fairly up to dash out over the hills , then onrircled with forts and menacing guns , and at n breakneck speed rush holtor-sKoltor , to the nmu'/omont of those less courageous. Many times alone she scoured the beautiful out skirts ; not always thus alone , however , for at limes it was observed that her escort was a maply youth of sturdy ap pearance and goodly features. Like wise it was noticed that when together speed was not so necessary , and rather did they Jog along side by side , inter ested both in cuuh other und the beau ties of nature , bucn as autumnal Sep tember can alone unfold. The dream of love was iiwiikonod in each. The climax came when , upon u return from such a jaunt , Maggie , Hushed with some excitement , miido a confident of her mother. She almost shocked her when , in girlish glee , she said : ' Mamma , I was married this morning. " Troutintr it jocosely , her mother said : "Wolll hope you have married a saint. " "Ho in , " she added , and then in a serious tone she gave the details. A cloud overshadowed the mutcrnul countenance. There was no longer doubt. In n tone of command Magglo was ordered to her loom. The very overture of her matrimonial career was the maledictions of the mother-in-law. The air was surfeited with womanly rage. In a condition fairly wild , the groom was ordered away with injunc tion to never addrebs his wife ugain , not even by so much us a look or token , Then Maggie became a prisonor.ulways under the eye oi her mother by day und by u cordon of her mother's friends ut night the two lovers were kept apart. Even in the marriage there was ro mance. Pivo miles away in the direction of the north was the little town of Bla- donsburg , mivdo historic bocuubo of its duels and medicinal because of its Spa.

Thus it was that Maggie contracted hoi first matrimonial alliance , which the anger of a mother would not permit tc be consummated and it never was. A womnn sixty-four years old died n few days ago in Purisaml her seve nty- year-pld husband asked to bo allowed to remain alone by the coffin for a while before _ it was taken away. When friends re-entered he was found lying across it dead , with a half empty phial of poison in his hand. The joungest couple over married in Ohio wore made man and wife rocontlj at Keyscr , Monard county. Their names are C'hloo Roland , aged thirteen , and See Snow , fourteen. They have boon sweethearts for four yea s , and after frequent entreaties received parental consent to marry. The bride was attired - tired in a short dress. A handsome man about twenty-four years of ago walked back and forth on the union depot platform the other morning apparently in a highly excited state of mind. Karly in the day he had secured section 10 of the sleeper Iroquois - quois , which was duo to leave for Wichita at 0:28 o'clock. Just three minutes before tlio signal was given for departure the Wubtibh fast train from St. Louis steamed into the depot. A beautiful young lady stood on the plat form of ono of the cars. She was dressed in silk , protected by a stylish flyaway cloak , and wore a hat with a long white plume. She was a brunette with sparkling brightoyos that sparkled still brighter as they caught sight of the young man. He rushed for ward und assisted the new comer to alight , escorting her hurriedly to the west end of the depot , where the sleeper was in wait ing. As they entered the car a gentle man dre&sed in block followed and wui handed u document , presumably u mar riage license. In the presence of rail way employes the words were quickly said that made the couple man and wifo. The ceremony occupied loss than a minute , and as the law of the state does not require cither witnesses or signature of friends to the marriage eortillcs.to the names of the two who wore thus strangely united were un known to all except the clergyman That individual dltmppuurod from tiio cur into the crowd , und the train sped away to the city of booms in south am Kutibus , The countyrecorder is author ity for the btutumo'nt that the parties merit interallied in the ceremony wore Lorenzo Hickman unU Kmma Jlickman , the former of Wichita , Kan. , and the latter of Vigo county , Indiana. Al though the young lady was not called upon to change her name , it is stated that no blood relationship exists be tween the two.

The shock , it is said , of a double postponement was too much for the lady , and she ended her life by taking drugs. _ _ _ _ _ Mrs. Annie Gardner , ngod thirty-two , was found dead in bed at Harrisvillo , Mich. , the other day. Five years ago she was a happy wife and the mother of two bright boys. She then lived with her husband in Toronto. An estrange ment occurred and one night the hus band took the two boys and came to Michigan. The distracted wife nnd mother followed nnd after' a weary bparch located him near Groonbush , six miles south of Harrisvillo , but hov husband learned of her arrival nnd at once fled to Saginaw , whore the two boys died. The mother followed her hubbancl to Snginaw , only to learn of the death of her two boys and that the father had buried them in an obsauro spot. She , af.tor long search , found their graves and had the remains exhumed - humod nnd buried in a cemetery. Then the heartbroken mother returned to Ilarribvillo , where her story gained her shelter and friends. Care and Borrow had whitened her hair and her bowed form seemed more like that of a porRon far advanced in years than that of a woman of her ago. CONNUUIALITIES.
