CHICAGO, Sept. 3. Th price of wheat
oa th local exchange continued on th
downward ooura again today, making rw
lew1 records for the aeaaon. At th doe,
December wheat wa off He. Corn was
down He. Oata wer a abad lower and
provision wer 6fll6c lower.
Sentiment In the wheat pit waa almost
exclusively dominated by the weather map
of the northwest, which I still favorable
for th harvesting and threshing of th
new crop of winter wheat. Cash houses
and pit trader, her wer offered wheat
liberally, but th demand waa not equal to
th supply and consequently th price of all
deliveries mad 'further decline. Th
Klnclpal buying wa by aborts. Liberal re
lets of new wheat at Minneapolis and
Duluth wer, to many traders, a fererun
ber of still greater reoelpts during th next
week and augmented the bearish sentiment
n the looal exohana. Th market waa
heavy all day and closed almost at the low
est point of the session. December opened
H9Ho to H3HC- lower at 7Jc to '2H, srld

Chicago reported recelpta o 5?S ears, against
146 last week and 600 a year ago.
Because of tha continuance of Ideal

practically nothing In - lira -l hands with
which to make a market. Th receipt
thia week, a will be noted from th
figure at head of column, 'bav been con
aiderably larger than last- week,' but not
materially different from Hi record of a
year ago. - wnne ine oig ouia 01 me ar
rival has been made up of range cattle,
there has also been quit a sprinkling of
corn feds. A feature of the week' re
ceipt has been the large run of range
cow and heifer.
The market on strictly choice beef steers,
both corn fed and rangere. has been very
good all the week and prices have shown
no material change. Cattle belonging to
big strings that have been coming during
the week have aold practically in the same
notches every aay. Among tne arnvaia
have been some right good killers, aa high
as 36.10, being paid for rangers, while the
top on corn feds wa 86.40. the highest prlc
el nee last November. Medium to common
kinds of cattle, owing to in large supply,
have had a lower tendency and are any
where from 16V'26o lower than a week ago.
Corn fed cattle of the kind that have been
selling from 86.60 down are all lower.
This has been the biggest week of th
season aa regards receipts of range cows
and heifers. Over 100 cars of cattle of
that description have been on ami on some
.lava. I'nder th Influence of such an ex
ceptionally large run prices declined very
rapidly ana at ine ciubc iu int. wwn ine
market on an average la fully 2fo lower,
and In spots aa much aa 40c lower. Th
eneral market might be described a 60o
ower than It. was two weeks ago. Aa
might be expected with price tending
downward so rapidly and the recelpta so
large, the trade on most days wa slow
and very much Inclined to dullness, mak
lng It hard work for salesmen.
Th supply of feeders has been very
large during th whole week, a considerable
nmnorllon of the range eteer received
being too thin for beef. At the same Urn
there were hardly enough strictly choice
weighty dehorned feeder to fill require
ments of the market, with th result that
cattle of that description have been
fully steady all the week. selling
anywhere from $4.00 . up to $4.60 for
the best. '' On the other - hand light
cattle, unless It might b something ex
ceptionally good, had a lower tendency end
are at least I692&0 lower than last week.
Common and unattractive kinds of feeders
have had the same experience, being gen
erally neglected, the country aeemlng to
want nnlv the aood kinds. Some say that
dry paaturea are responsible for the limited
demand for Block cattle at the preaeut
time, .others that farmer are waiting until
cattle ran be turned Into the corn field,
but whatever may be th cauae the fact re
mains that the country I buying very
sparingly of tock cattle.
nrwiSNo srreat chance took nlace In
the hog market this morning, prices being
very mucn in same inose wnicn pre
vailed yesterday. Possibly there may have
been a little strength at some points and It
would be oaf to quote the general market
stesdy to strong. There waa a tendency
to bunch sales a Utile more closely and
shippers will note that the range between
heavy and light I considerably narrower
than It waa a short time a an. Heavy
hog today sold largely at $S8o5 90. with
light nogs going largely at ni.'ot. m and
mixed hog at tt '."'0 1 ne market waa
fairly actlv at the prevailing prices and
and an eariy clearance was errected
Practically even thing wa sold by 10
O clock In the morning.
A will be noted from the table receipt
at head of column the arrivals this week
have been comparatively light, showing a
considerable falling off aa compared with
the week before and still about the ami
a a year ago. Th week etarted out with
a steady market,- but values declined
rapidly during th two days following, so
that th hogs on Wednesday sold on an
average a nig na lower man on Monday
On Thuraday and Friday there waa m
aharp upturn In values so thst at th close
of the week the market Is 6c hiaher than
It was one . week sgo. The strength de
veloped In the msrket during the last hair
of the week appeara to have reaulted from
a heavy falling off in recelpta at all market

SHEEP Thar mora nn fraah racelllt of
sheep today, the market being practically
..are aa uauai on a Haturtiav. ine re
ceipt this week have been very large, th
toiai nmount ns- to a no-htiv over 70i neau
aa against 48,44 last week and 647 head
a year ago. On Tueadav the recelot
footed UD 27.672. which waa laraer by sev
eral thousand head than any other market.
In spite of the verv larae recelDia the
market at thia point haa been In exceed
ingly good condition. Even on Tuesday,
when th erecelpta wer so large, practically
everything was ailrl hafnra tha close, with
price generally strong, la fact it ha been
a good, strong market every dsy of th
week. A a matter nf mora there have
been weak snota. but there have also been
stronger spots snd at th clos of the week
sneep are fully steady with a week ago
and good lambs generally a little higher.
r eeners nave two 11 verv active Duvera
throughout the week and while the bulk of
the receipts ha been msde up of that kind
of stuff, there have been buyers enough
to take everything coming and more, too.
Feeder hnvera hav-a learned bv experience
that they can secure the best feeding sheep
and iambs at this noint. wnne Dy going iv
eastern markets they are very apt to secui
only what 'has been rejected at western
points and they are coming here in larger
numbers every yesrs. It wa a noteworthy
fact that thia week the very largest feed
ers In the whole country were In attendance
on this market. With buying support 01
this kind it Is not surprising thst th
market has been strong and actlv all th
week In the fac ot extremely large re
ceipts. In spite of tha fact that packer seem to
feel that prices sre high they have bought
everything coming, with sheep, as noted
above, fully steady for th week. No
choice lambs have arrived during the week.
The best seen here came in yesterday and
brought $7.40. The lambs coming to thia
point have been too light and the feeling
Is tMst a right good bunch of lsmba weigh

aell readily at $7.60 or above. -

When Mark Twain waa city editor of the
Virginia City Enterprise, back In the '70s,
he used to brighten up the columns of the
paper with comlo paragraph setting forth
th advantages of advertising.
These paragraphs were baaed, on til
klnda of odd facts on murders, on crop
report, on kidnaping, on th weather. On
paragraph ran Ilka thia:
"Germany haa Just discovered a burled
forest In its midst, supposed to be 10.000

are that It would have been returned to
