BOSTON, Feb. 4. WOOL-JRegardlng the
wool market the Boston Commercial Bulle
tin Bays: The market is dull. Small
lots only are selling and not many
of these. A little better movement of new
Australian is reported, but the sales are
far behind the receipts, - which continue
large. Owing to the prolonged dull spell
some holders are becoming nervous. Weak
ness has developed In dojnestlc scoured and
pulled v."iols and the high pretensions of
holders have been shaded.- Standard
grades, however, are unchanged. The Ion
don auction sales were a disappointment,
prices declining on cross-breds. A general
advance was expected. The shipments of
wool from Boston to date from. December
29, 1904, according to the same authority,
are 23,765,439 pounds, agsilnst 25,690.591 pounds
at the same time last year. The receipts
to date nre 24,61:1,026 pounds, against 15.460,
460 pounds for the same period last year.

CATTLE There were practically no cat
tle on sale today, so a test of the market
was not made. For the week receipts
show a loss as compared with lust week
of about 3.500 head, but a gain over the
corresponding wek of last year of about
2.500 head. The demand has been Just
about equal to the supply, so thut very
11 1 1 lo change In ruling prices lias taken
The extremely cold weather all this week,
together with the snow, bus caused trains
to arrive very late in the day. As a re
sult the market on beef steers has been
slow In opening, but as a general thing
after trading did begin, It was fairly active,
particularly on the more desirable grades.
As compared with the close of last week
the general market on steers can safely be
quoted steady to strong and the choicer
grades are probably about a dime higher.
The common and warmed up kinds, though,
are only steady and none too active. Oood
to choice grades are quotable from $6.00 to
$5.60; fair to good, $4.25 to $5.00, und com
mon to fair' from $3.26 to $4.26.
The demand for cow stuff has been quite
active all the week, and the same as with
steers the fluctuations in prices from day
to day have been very slight. At the
close of the week the choicer grades are
perhaps strong to a dime higher than the
close of last week, but the common and
medium grades are selling In Just about
the same notches they were a week ago.
Buyeis all seem to be anxious for the de
sirable grades, but when it comes to the
common stuff they are rather indifferent
and do not appear to care much whether
they get that class of offerings or not.
Good to choice grudes of cows and heifers
may be quoted from $3.00 to $4.25, fair to
good $2.40 to $3.00 and common to fair from
$1.60 to $2.40.
Bulls are steady for the week, the fat
ones selling from $2.50 to $3.50 and feeder
bulls from $2.26 to $2.75. Veal calvee are
unchanged, best grades bringing $5.50.
There has been a very light run of stock
ers and feeders on vale this week, and
owing to the severe weather not many
have been wanted. The heavy fall of snow
In most sections of the country tributary
to this market has cut down the demand
for light weight stockers and it Is im
practicable to turn them Into corn stalks
and not many farmers care to buy young
cattle and be forced to feed them r.ay and
grain. Under such circumstances light
we.ght cattle have been slow Bale all the
week nnd may be quoted a little lower
than they were a week ago. The good
heavy cattle, cither green or warmed up,
have been in fairly good demand, and such
kinds ate. If anything, a little stronger
'or the v.eek. Cattle lacking In quality,
though, are rather slow sale even if they
are of good weights. Good to choice g.ades
of heavy cattle may be quoted from "j.76
to $4.35, fair to good cattle $3.26 to $3.75,
and common and Ugh. cattle from $3.26
down. Representative sales:

HOGS There was Just a fair run of hogs
here this morning for a Saturday, and with
favorable reports from other points and a
good local demand the market opened
strong to 60 higher, or generally 2V4c higher.
Trains were rather Blow in arriving and
that had a tendency to make buyers slow
about taking hold, bo that trading waa
not at all active. The hogs, however, kept
moving toward the scales and It was not
long before the bulk of tho early arrivals
wus disposed of. After packers had their
more urgent orders tilled, however, trading
became Teas active and the closa was slow
and weak, with sules little, if any, better
than yesterday. Light weights sold largely
from $4.72Vfc down, butchers and mixed hog
from $4.72" to $4.77V and heavies from $1.75
to $4.85. Owing to the late arrival of trains
and also to the slow close. It waa late be
fore a clearance waa made.
For the week receipts have been very
light, as there is a decrease ns compared
with last week of about 22.000 head. As
compared wlih the aamo week of last year
the falling off amounts to about 10, 00 head.
The tendency of prices has been upward'
all the week nnd the net gain amounts to
about 2oc. This carries the market to the
high point of the season to date und alao
to the highest point reached since Novem
ber 11 of last year. Representative rales:

Back to life for a brand new set of adventures, Sherlock Holmes has come, and it
may safely 'be said that these thirteen stories surpass anything that has yet been recorded
of the great j detective. The titles themselves breathe excitement. and mystery. They are:

When Bir Arthur Conan Doyle created the character of SH KK LOCK HOLMES he founded an absolutely unique type and
reconstructed the entire theory and nature of detective stories. Heretofore such talcs had belongetl largely to "dime novel
literature." Doyle made his famous detective a deductive genius, and the style and nature of his adventures set the reading
world to talking. When the author ceased at last to to write SHERLOCK HOLMES stories there arose a universal demand
for more of these great detective narratives.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has written, by special arrangement, a new and final series of the ADVENTURES OF SHER
LOCK nOLMES, for which he has received the highest price ever paid for such literary work.
These stories have achieved a great success the greatest perhaps in the annals of so-called light literature.
This great success was, of course, due in part to the fact that the thirteen tales comprising the series are the last SHER
LOCK HOLMES stories that will ever be written: Thousands of people, have grown to regard Holmes Almost as a personal
friend, and they would not willingly miss reading a single one if his adventures, the more especially as the present SHER
LOCK HOLMES stories will be followed by no others. "THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES" is SHERLOCK
HOLMES' farewel performance. At the conclusion of the series he will become but a memory. On this point Sir Arthur
is firm he will write no more SHERLOCK HOLMES stories, now or later
By special arrangement THE SUNDAY REE has secured the right to publish these stories,
next three months each week a complete adventure and mystery.

ISHKK1' There wore alwiut six cars on
sale ihla morning and, with a gonj duinand,
the market ruled urtivu and steady, every
thing changing hands as soon us ottered.
There were two cara of lambs eoo'i enough
to bring $7.26 and four cars of ewes 14.85.
Kor the week receipts have been rather
light, showing a loss as cumpured with lust
week of about 3,(K) head und ns compared
with the Mime week of last year there is a
fulling off of about the same amount. The
demand has been quite brisk and (is a re
sult the tendency of prices has been de
cidedly upward unj practically all of the
loss of ktht week has been regained, which
takes prices back to the high point of the
season lo date. Some of the part-fat kind
may not be quite us iilKh hb they were
week before lust, but the change la too
small to bo worthy of mention. Each
day's offerings have been well cured for. as

of the supply and packers have had a
hard time to get enough to meet their more
Very few feeders have been included in
