SHEEP-Yesterdays sharp advance in
live mutton prices inft pretty strong Ideas
of valuation in selling circles and sales
men as a rule were inclined to ssk tome
ahal, higher prices this morning, as a re
lull. Packers were nut disponed to further
elevate the price fist. hover, and open
ing trade a as rather quiet. With the
yarding of tha original estimate, some
4.SO0 h.ad. the talent settled on a trading
basis and bulk ot receipts changed hands
In very good season. Most sales wire Just
about steady with yesterday with the
trend of valuea .possibly a shade stronger
On some of the better classes of sheep
There waa a greater number of com
mon lambs in today's run and the tend

A few strings of short-fed stuff and
rangers were suld for feeding purposes,
but thai volume of business in ILe feed r
branch of the trade was hardly large
enough to afford a broad Idea of the act
ual situation. The demand for anything
suitable for finishing has been active
lately at good, firm figures and tt la safe

still there was a fair showing. Buyers all
seemed .to want a few . good Killers arid as s.
rule, were out in tne yarns in lair leamn
cleaning up, the early arrivals some little
time before midday. The prices paid war
steady to strong gs compared with yesterday.
cows ana. heifers were, also in very gooa
demand, and they too, sold quite freely
at steady to strung price. Tho early ar-
rivala sold in good season ano tne inaraei
