A Chicago trader says: "The east prob ably will be In the market for oats again 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.

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.

In spile of this large run the market has been In veiy satisfactory condition. Fat cattle begun the week with a steady market and good kinds were steady on Tuesday, with the common kinds slow and easier. On Wednesday, under the influ ences of moderate receipts and a goi.d. 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 strong lo 10c. higher. With no material charge In value during the last two days of the week It follows that prices are now Hist SDoiit joc nigner man a week r ti e.t.iu r.i an ui-eraee hv n.

What has been said regarding the mar- I j,P( ,, fat gieers would apply in the main to the cow and heifer market. As was the case with fat cattle, cows and heifers be gan tbe week about steady, eased off a little, only to strengthen up again later 011. so that at me close or tne week they ; showed an advance of about 10c, the same as steers. Blockers and feeder have also been very good seller all the week and have been in excellent demand for this season of the year. Prices during the first half of the week were very strong, but, as Is apt to be the case with this kind of rattle,- es pecially when receipts are running well up with the demand, the market eased off somewhat toward the latter part of the week. At the close of the week it is diffi cult to distinguish any very marked differ ence In valuta between now and a week ago. Representatives sales: COWS A. Tr. Ko A. Fr. p6 :o HEIFERS. Ke. .. I '.

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 aioiosi MC1U117 uinia. 1 ni w pea siartea 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.

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 COUNTRY CALENDAR 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 prices. THE EXPLANATION 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. THE TWENTIETH CENTURY FARMER This Is a magazine designed for every member of the farm home.

The age at which drunkenness is estab lished whs Investigated by Dr. Charles U. 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.
