CATTLE There ar never Any cattle to
speak of on sal on a Saturday and today
was no exception to the general rule. For
the week the receipts foot up slightly mora
than for last week, but show a falling off
as compared with a year ago.
Th market during the week has not been
overly well supplied with corn-fed steers,
while there baa been a good, healthy de
mand. Aa a result cattle of that kind have
been ateady or strong every day and the
market at the close of the week is. If any
thing, a little better than It was at the
close ef Isat week. About the asms thing
could be said regarding range beef, which
haa also been In demand and haa sold at
good, firm prices every day, with th close
possibly a little better than last week.
The week started out with cows and
heifers selling a little stronger snd ths
marxei contiuuea to nrm' tip until Wednes
day, when prices reached the highest
point touched In some week's. In fact, that
kind of cattle sold ' very - high compared
with th way fat steers were selling. High
prices naturally brought In liberal receipts,
with the result that buyers were pretty
well filled up, and when Thursday arrived
with another liberal run they were In
position to bear the market They con
tinued to squeete prices Friday, with the
result that the market for the two days
was 1041 5c lower and in some cases pos
sibly lMd25c lower on the more common
kind This means that all the advance of
the week was wiped out, leaving th mar
ket, a little lower than it waa at th close
of laat week.
Blockers and feeders having quality were
free sellers all last week and prices con
tinued strong from day- to day. Th top
was no higher, but there seamed to be a
tendency for the lower grades to sell up a
little closer to the better kinds. Ths coun
try demand was vary fair and at the close
of the week . the yard , ar vary well

HOOS Whil it was
ruble to point
out hlah a do La or sins
load that sold a llttl higher, th general
market was not vary much changed a
compared with yesterday. In fact, sellers
as a rui were quoting their sales aa only
steady with yesterday. The trade was
slow In getting stsrted, but when one un
der wsy th early arrivals .ware pretty
much all disposed of Iq very good season
In th morning. Th only trouble waa that
a conalderable proportion of the receipts
did not arrive at the yards until late In
th forenoon, which delayed the market
hog hav been light this
area with th previous week
the cam as a year ago. Aa
week as com pa
but Just about the cam as a year ago. As
to price th week started out a llttl
stronger, but steadily eased off until
Wednesday, when the low point was
touched, hogs selling on that day 10a lower
than th first of th week. During the re
mainder ef th week there was an upward
tendency to value, so that today hog
old fully as well as on Monday, or about
tVftc higher than at th clo ef laat week.

SH EEP Contrary te tn usual m's there
waa a fair run of lamb here today, ten
fresh cara being reported In. Th market
as sii to be expected on the the last day
of the week, showed ve.y little change.
Th receipts of sheep for ths aeek foot1
up close to 90.000 head. being the
largeet run for the year to date and th
largest for ny week me last November.
The heaviest receipts for lest year were
during th week ending October I, when
103. Iso head arrived at the yards.
In spite of the very heavy" receipts the
market, st this point haa been In ex
ceptionally good condition all the week.
The proportion of fat sheep and lambs
lias been small and packers have been
enabled to take practically everything com
ing, so thst good killers have sold at
steady prices throughout the week.
Th attendance of feeder buyer haa been
very large all th week, so that in spit
of th excessive receipts the market has
remained In a good healthy condition
Moreover, prices on desirable klndl Of
feeder have shown vry llttl change com
paring the close of the week with laat
week close. As a mstter of fact, prices
strengthened up very materially during th
first hslf of the week. On Thursday, when
South Omaha had more sheep than all
other markets combined, the high prices
of Tuesday snd Wednesday were shaded
somewhat, so that the market on the good
kinds dropped back to about where It was
st the clne of the previous week. Com
mon and medium kinds of lambs and
medt.im to fair ewes are some lower st
the close of the week. This Is especially
true of light undesirable lambs, especially
those on th runt order.
It Is not surprising that common- to
medium kind of lambs should have sold
off at this point ss a heavy decline has
takep place at Chicago. The Chicago
Drovers Journal of Friday says of the
lamb market at that point:
"Again buyers had things their own way
with the medium to good grades of natlv
Ismbs and bought such st prices V$i6o
lower, considering the severity of the sort
demanded today. Price for such were
easily the lowest of the week and show
4ibQe decline from the range her late
last week, or a break of 75ritl.00, from
high time here early last week?'
The same paper quotes th big native
ewes and th plainest class of breeding
ewes as nesrly 25c. off on prices psid there
1st laat week, with many of them 10c be
low the high time, lea than two weeks

land to th prairies are as undulating
and close In turC as th seashore links in
th British Isles. W don't build bunkers

"When a swstfest Is 'elMed down to sis
or eight. It become aa exciting 4 form of
golf aa any I have seen. At onr lsst swat
feet over the Omaha Field club links,
there were six survivors out of severity
starter to play the sixteenth tail:' at $
yards. All had 4 when th laat p1r drove
off. One of them dropped his tee shot And
took 1 more to the green, but holed out In
4. His partner was on the green In 2, and.
It looked aa If he. too. would get a 4
and the bunch keep on Intact to the next
hole, instead, this chap played a lonfc
put bravely to the hole and got-' hla $.
There waa a tremendoua yell from th
gang a a tribute to hi courage. H took
the chance of overrunning for a 6, when
he would hav been tha only on to drop,
out, hut the I put out all th 4s and von
th cup for him."

competition that may be dismissed with a
strrug of ths shoulder.
