soon, particularly If the market here holdp
firm. Trie recent sudden increase In the
supply of cars east piled up a lot of oats
at Junction points through that section.
These hiive now disappeared, but new

Strength In the market developed toward
the end of the first hour. At the Immedi
ate opening the market was somewhat weak
mid initial uiioiations on May were a shade,
to 'iV! lower at 84-'iM'c. Factors con
tributing' to the 'easier tone were liberal
shipments from Australia and mild weather :
in the winter wheat belt In the I nited j
States. As the session advanced trading in-
creased in volume, shorts, commission i
houses and cash Interests buying freely. I
The selling was chiefly by longs. Respond
ing' to the increased demand prices ad-'
vanced steadily. Late in the day a report I
was received from Kansas City to the ef- j
feet that the crop in Hurton county. Kan
sas, bad been damaged 20 per cent by the I
unseasonable weather In the last .month.
Other reports of damage enie from Mis- 1
sourl and southern Illinois. An official fore- ;
cast of much colder weather tomorrow and '
a report of a blizzard In North Dakota I
which might temporarily check the move-
inent of grain caused Increased anxiety
among the shorts. The market rlosed 1
strong with prices at the, highest point of
the day. Final quotations on May were at
KT.Sf'Sfc'tc. Clearances of wheat and flour
were equal to SAl.OM bu. Primary receipts
were 41.. "CO bu.. against 3M.i0 hu. a year
ago. Minneapolis, Imluth and Chicago re
ported receipts of i! cars, against 305 cars
last week and 239 ears a year ago.
lesplte heavy primary receipts, the corn
market was tirm lor the greater part of the
day in sympathy with wheat. Shorts were
active buyers and the sellinit was mainly
by longs. The market closed firm, with
prloea at the highest point of the day. May

Fat cattle begun the week with a steady

Tuesday, with the common kinds slow and
easier. On Wednesday, under the influ

active demand, values firmed up snd were
generally o,uoted a little better than tho
previous day. This upward movement was
continued on Thursday, when salesmen
pretty generally quoted their sales as

HOGS There was a fair run of hogs
here for a Saturday, although the receipts
were iy no means large, still thev were
scjnewhat in excess of previous Saturdays
1 of recent date. Under the infloence of en
I roursging reiiorts irom all selling points.
eoupleil with a good local demand, the
inurket opened about 5c higher. The early
sales were un the basis of $5 6l'S for rood
hogs. This price secured the bulk of the
receipts, with some of the better hoes sell
ing as high as $5.55 and on up to $5 57V for
choice loads. The early market was quite
active st the advance noted above and the
big bulk of the receipts changed bands in
good season. Some of the heaviest buyers,
however, were still following bear tactics,
so that after the more urgent orders were
filled tbe market became less brisk and
th feeling a little easier.
The course of value this week has I leen

out with values a shade higher, with a
sllsht resction on Tuesdsv. followed by a
good stiff advance on Wednesday and a
slisht reaction the dsv after and the big
advance on Friday. The furtb"v dvance
today places the market at a oinf that is

and the h'irhei of anv day so far this year.

As usual on the last
. .1 .1
week, there was coninaralu elv little domic
on tho sheep market, not nougli In faci
to call It a market. This has been a week
of extremely light sheep receipts he total
being less than half what It was for the
previous week and a little n -"e than half
the receipts of a year ago. flits light run
has tieen due entirely to the efforts of coni-
mission men and newspapers to keep down 1
the receipts at this point on account of the
limited demand. Had all othr markets
followed the same policy prices for th
week would unquestionably have been
maintained, but In spite of the fact that
the eastern mutton market was badly de
moralised shipments of sheep and lambs
were encouraged at some points, with the
result that (hose markets broke and car
ried down with them the markets st other '
points. The decline for tbe week at South
Omahs amounts to lfKEr".r some kinds
showing more loss than others. In spit" of J
this seemingly heavy loss prices at this 1
point nave ranged higher comparatively
than at any other simply because the re
ceipts being light here Uie market has been
In a good, healthy condition.
Sheepmen do not anticipate any Improve
ment In the market so long us the demand
for mutton is so light In the large eastern
consuming centers. Cold weather would
have a tendency to stimulate the demand
for mutton and might be followed by a
radical Improvement in the sheep and lamb
market. This means that the market Just
at present Is largely under the Influence of
weather conditions, and so far as can be
seen there is no other apparent reason for
th" present weakness in values.

WOM4 '8 HOMR COMPANION
We are rery fortunate la blug able to arranfre with tbe pobllrtera
of these well known magazines to offer their publication at thlaae
atlonal price. It is an opportunltr not often presented. Nerer JOT
baa a publisher been able to make so liberal aa offer on exclualTe ht$70
grade and high priced magazines.
You ask how Is this offer possible if the three magazine haT a
fixed value and are not like the commodities usually offered M bargala
It is well known to ereryone In business that In fixing a selling
price there must be added to the manufacturing cost the cost of mar
keting. The cost of marketing a magazine Is a big Item, and these
three publishing housea decided to unify their efforts to get new read
ers, making one organization do the work, and dlride the cost mi mar
keting by three. That is why you can buy theoe magazine, that it
tbe needs of every home, for nearly half trice.

Special articles on subjects of the giestest interest are printed each

field so diversified as to embrace during the year all branches of far
activity and life. Frank G. Carpenter's "Letters of Travel" and Wil
liam Jennings Bryan's "Around the World Letters" appear In no
other agricultural paper. Either One of these features are worth the
price of a year's subscription. No other farm rapor maintains so maay
regular departments, such as Feeding, Live Stock, Veterinary. Dairy.
Poultry, Crops, Farm Devices, Orchard and Garden, with four pages
devoted to the women, young folks and children. Each of thee

The age at which drunkenness is estab

Dana snd his conclusions, belnjt baaed
upon some thousands of eases, are not only
of gieut scleiitidc value, but have a practl-c:-l
applicatkm as well, briefly It might
i be said that Inebriety usually begins be
fore 20 years of age and if a man ha net
Indulged to excess before he is 25 he Is not
likely to do so later. There are o few who
begin excessive drinking between 9f and 40
years of sge that ope who has reached the
age of 30 without excesses is almost surely
ssfc. Dana stated that no cases arte after
40 years of sge. There It a popular Idea,
no doubt, that numerous cases do arise
after 40. but It Is not at all unlikely that
Investigation Into their early histories wDJ
bring to light a long serins of occasional
overindulgence with some symptom dat
ing back to childhood. Dana evidently re
fers to resl inebriety In yotith and not to
the lapses which so many young men
wrongly assume to be a part of their edu
cation, nor does he assert that all youth
ful inebriates are Incurable, hut merely
thst old case began at an early age.' Wild
I oals must be reaped In sorrow and pain.
i but they do not necessarily chok the whole
t crop of good seed. These statistics are of
such profound significance that It Is quite
remarkable they have elicited so little com
ment and have not been made the basis of
practical measures for the prevention of
drunkenness. American Medicine.
