more than had been anticipated, taking
everything into consideration.
ihe supply of beef sifters waa quite 110

cattle In sight being nmue up of that kind.
At the same time the demand was not very

fur fresh supplies as sellers would like to
see and the general trade was slow. Prices
did not show much change, some sales
looking possibly strong and -others wean.

In the feeder division there was a general
prevalence of quiet, very distressing to the
sellers of cattle. There were few country
buyers and to make it still worse few were
expected. The trade sort of figured It out
that the country would not be in any hurry
to boy feedrit so long as feed lots are sev

the trade was not only slow, but price
were at least 10c lower than last week.

HOOS What a change a few days makes
last Wednesday and Thursday it looked
as if the bottom had fallen completely out
of the hog market. The lndirfirence of
buyers was so great that one could hardly
Imagine that the country was still eating
pork. Today it looked as if the count: y
had refused to eat anything else than pork
and that the buyers were afraid tnere
were no more hogs coming to market. They
were all out in good season and the early
arrivals changed haodn In a very short
time at prices that were lilt 'Joe higher than
than Friday's early market. It will be
remembered that late trains sold a great
deal belter on rlday than the early, so
that if a comparison waa to be made with
Friday s close it would not show much
over 10c gain. A decent kind of hogs hav
ing a little weight sold largely at and
right around S SO, with good heavy on up
aa high as S8-40, only &c under the ex
treme high point of the year. Lighter
hogs sold from S8.30 on down.
After the early arrivals had changed
hands buyers seemed to come to the con
clusion that they had paid more money
than was absolutely necessary snd the late
arrivals did not fare so well. The market
closed less active and with part of the
morning's advance lost. Still as a whole it
was a right good market.

811 LEP Under the Influence of limited
receipts and a brisk buying demand, every
thing in the sneep barn sold readily tins
morning at prices that were sharply higher.
Most salesmen called the general advance
over last Week's close a liat quarter, al
though one or two sales appeared to be
higher than this estimate. Fully 2jc hlgh.r
on tha bsfct killers and UaaZoc higher on
the common and medium kinds would Just
about describe the actual situation aa far
aa prices are concerned. A couple of loads
of fed western lamtia topped at S-vuu,
fleshy rang swea from Idaho sold at S5aO
and a string of yearlings ware good enough
to nalise H 75. Kxtra choice fat lamos
would probably sell up to Si. 26, although
there waa nothing of this description on
aala today with which to test extreme tops.
It Is a peculiar, though logical circum
stance, that there are seldom few feeders
among supplies on a day whan trade la
active and prices higher. This feature la
explained In the fact that a good portion
of warmed-up stock is absorbed by pack
ers when tha run Is rather small, whereas
offerings of a short-fed nature are forced
Into f seder channels when trade Is slow
and packers discriminating. There were
only a few odd bunches that were sold as
feeders today and these cuiniiisnjed fully

Feataree of the Trading: and Closing
Prices on Board of Trade.
CHICAGO. Dec. 27. The' wheat market
was firm during early trading today, due
chiefly to a sharp bulge In corn prices.
The market, however, was bullishly af
fected to some extent by a brisk demand
for the cash grain. Commission houses
were the principal bidders, but demand was
not extremely urgenC
Opening quotations showed gains of 'c to
c with May at 41.11' to H.lis.l.il1.
After selling at 81.114 the May option
dropped back to Sl.lltfc'ttl.ll4.
An advance of more than 3c In December,
due to a stampede among shoits. waa the
feature of traalng in the final half of the
day. From Sl.l'JVfc the price rose to Sl.lsHd
May In the meantime advanced from tl.10-
&1.11 to 41.12. ' Hie market reacted ma
terially late in the session owing U talk of
liberal world's shipments for the week.
The close was fairly steady, with December
up ISc at fl.DS.v May was tfeHc higher
ar-ll.HVttil.UH. ' -Active
demand by leading bulls caused
advances of Vii'Wc to l)c in the price of
corn on Initial transactions. The greatest
gain was in the December delivery, which
opened at 63 a64Vic. May opened at sVa
Sic. After touching 64S. December settled
back to 64c. May advanced to 67 and
then declined to b, Wt't.i-c.
Nearly all the gain was subsequently lost
on profit taking, December selling off to
63c. The closo was steady, with December
end May each up Vac at 63c and 674c, re
spectively. Oats were firm In sympathy with wheat
and coru. Offerings were light early In
the day. May opened He higher at 45!c,
advanced to 4c and then sold off to 1ic.
Trading In provisions was very quiet at
the start, but the market was firm because
of the strtngth of the grain. Prices at the
opening were unchanged to 10c higher.

Bla- Champs Who Will Visit
Omaha Draw' Crowds In
voluntarily. Harry Prlmeau of the city clerk' office
is back from a trip to Texas, where ha
went to visit a brother.
"When we left Houston It was raining,"
said Mr. Prlmeau, and it continued to
rain while we were traveling to Wichita.
The rain was getting colder every hour
as we came- north and at Wichita it was
a miserable, chilling sleet
"Jim Jeffries, Frank Gotch and their
party got on the train at Fort Worth to
travel to Oklahoma City. They were the
object of much Interest to crowdB all along
the line. Evidently the word had been sent
ahead, for at every station a bunch of cltl
sens was gathered. Many photographers
were on hand at every stop, but Jeff was
not in a summer humor and he rarely
showed himself long enough for the pic
ture men to get a shot at him. When Okla
homa City was r-rached fully 1,000 people
had congregated to see the two big fellows
and their sparring and wrestling partners.
If Indications go for anything, that aggre
gation of athletes Is about ton popular and
interesting a bunch as could be gotten to
gether." Mr. Prlmeau found tha cold winds from
the gulf coast about as disagreeable as
anything the Nebraska climate cun offer,
although most of the time he was with a
party living in tents.
