CATTLE Although the receipt yester
day were late In arriving, the yards were
pretty well cleaned up before the close,
very little stock being carried over. The
fresh receipts this morning ss usual on a
Saturday were extremely light In conse
quence of which there was not enough of
anything on sole today to be worth (pioltng.
Heavy receipts have been a characteristic
of this week's cattle trade. The total ar
rive without exception ure the heaviest
for any week so far this year. As will be.
noted from the table of receipts published
at the head of this column, there was a
largo gain over the previous week and a
slill larger gain over the corresponding
week of a year ago.
Another feature of the week's trade la
the large number of beef steers coming
forward to market. While there are 110
figure from which to make comparisons,
those who have been in the trade lor many
year claim that they cannot recall a season
when the receipts were so largely made up
of fair to good beef steers during the month
of March a at the present time. In spile
of this very large run the rattle market
this week has been in fair condition, al
though there has been a lower tendency to
values. A right choice bunch of prime
beeves would prubojjly sell very nearly as
high as last week. Good handy-weight
cattle are probably liVolSc lower for the
week, while rough heayy beeves have de
clined 15ti26c.
Cows and heifers, notwithstanding the
large receipts, have been in miMir.ute sim
ply and there haa been a very good buying
nemanil 011 the pari or local packers. 1 he
market on the better grudes has la-en will
inaintaiiiud. Anything on the fair to good
order can safely be quoted fully as high
as Inst week. Common canners and cutters
on the other hand, have been Inclined to
drag and gradually eased off as the week
advanced. This kind is as low as It has
been any time this Winter.
Blockers and feeders sold at very strong
prices during the hist half of the week,
but toward the close that i. on Thursday,
the receipts began Increasing quite rapidly,
the prevailing high prices having appar
ently Induced free shipments. At the same
time with tho growth ot the receipt the
country demand was somewhat disappoint
ing, so that under these two influences
working In opposite directions the market
eased off and at the close of the week is
generally 1oj15c lower.

HOGS A few loads of hogs sold early
this morning at prices very nearly su-urly
Willi yesterday, shippers and speculators
being the buyers. Par kers generally started
out bidding lower, and the trade al lirst
was very slow. Later on buyers ar.d sell
er got together on a basis of price mat
were Jusl about 24c lower than yesterday's
general market. The trade then became
active and ihe rece ipts soon changed hands.
The Hogs sold very largely al 0.224tii 25.
as against $6 22VU&274 yesterday. The
top today was $6 JO, w hich was 24c lower.
A load was aold very late yesterday al
$6 324. the high point of the year.
Hogs have shown considerable Improve
ment this week notwithstanding the fact
that the receipts have been extremely
heavy that Is. way in excess of previous
weeks and very much larger than for the
corresponding week of a year ago. Prices
have gradually tended upward, the higii
point being reached on Friday, when the
average of all the sales was $4,254, which
made that the high day of the year. After
allowing for the slightly lower prices pre
vailing today the market is still HKi124c
higher than It was al the close of lasi
