Continued lively demand for cash wheat
by millers at Minneapolis and Duluth
caused a further advance In prices at
those points, and waa the primary reason
for u bullish sentiment that prevailed all
day In the local market. Bmall receipts In
the northwest because of bad weather alao
aaslsted In creating the local demand. A

8HEK1 There were not enough sheep i
here this morning to mnke a market, only
four fresh cars being rere rted In and a few
-dda and ends rarrled over from yesterduv.
The demand was as good as usual and the
few loads In sight sold very readily at good, ,
strong prl' es. The C. D. Houston wethT.
jwnicn brought eo.60 yesterday, sua toony
The feeling on the market has been very ,
good all thla week and prices hive b""n ;
gradually strengthening up under the In- 1
fluence of the good demand and the mod- ,
emte receipt). At the present time It Is '
safe to quote sheep and lambs l'BCSi' h'gh-r
than last week. Shippers should bear In I
mind what waa snld yesterday regarding ,
the demand being limited to the good kinds. ,
Huyers do not want half fnt stuff and will
not take It so long as there Is anything bet- ,
ter to be had. Inasmuch as well-flnlshed
sheep and lambs are bringing such sMlHfee- j
; tory prices it Is the height or roiiy lor snip- ;
' pers to send In unfinished stock which h 1
to he gy.ld at a sacrifice. '

CATTLE Receipts of cattle this morning
were very light, only about ssxty odd cr
being reported in the yards, which was not
enough to make much of a market. There
was, however, a very fair demand and the
general market was in good healthy con
ultlon. beef steers were sought after at fully
steady and In some cases strong prices.
The supply consisted principally of warmed
up corn-teds, so that there wa nothing to
put a top on the market and sales did not
show up too well on paper.
Cows and heifer were also free sellers
at good steady to strong prices and the
small supply in sight was soon disposed of.
Feeders were alao free sellers and It did
not take buyers very long to pick up
everything on sale. Tuey, too, commanded
fully steady prices and In some cases pos
The tendency of the market this week
has been upward under the Influence of the
demand and the very moderate reeelpta,
so that prices are now considerably higher
than they were at the close of last week.

One choice load of 21o-pour.d hogs sold

later market wa not us good a th early,
buyers, as noted above, were not very
anxious for high-priced hogs, and as some
of them dropped out of the market, having
filled their orders, others lowered their
Mds. so that the market closed with con,
siderable of the advance lost, some of the
last kales looking very little better than
yesterday's early market.
