CMlCACrO, Dec. 8. Wlieat proved a
heavy load today for the bull. - (feat
acreage In this country, fine harvest In
Argentina and lower iiuotatlons In Kurope
were bearish. A weak close resulted, with
last prices He to Vfc'tlV" below last nlKtit.

Oats fltiished Vic to 'iQS0 uff and provi
sion were unchanRed to 10a advance.
1 -at est sale of wheat brought the leant
money of any. Argentina weather and
crop advices became so Kood that carRoes
from ISueno Ay re were offered freely
at reduced figures. Every European mar
ket sent lower quotation save Paris,
where the rise was unimportant. Buffalo
reported 7.0H0.O00 bushel afloat there In
addition to warehouse total. Thla amount
In marine storage ia nearly double that
of the corresponding period a year ojro.
From start to finish the market felt also
the effect of selling;, due to the un
precedented extension of the area aown
to winter wheat. The May option ranged
from 9"eitc to WHiWiHc, closing at HtiiO
down at Dti'uStOUc.
Corn dropped because consignments from
Iowa were berlnnlng to arrive and a bl
run wa expected by the middle of next
week. May fluctuated between 470 and
47-V with the close KICo. net lower at

yellow finished at 50C(j(Jo4o.
The oat market was relatively firm a
compared with other grain. May varied
from SfcirWtoC to 34-Vo and closed V40 off
at 34,c.
Realizing sales caused a backset In the
provision pit. At the end of the day.

HOGS The market opened this morning.
with buyers talking prices that were
around 10c lower than yesterday's general
market. Bellors were a little backward
about cutting loose and when both buyers
and sellers got together It was on the basis
of price that were generally btfiuo lower
than yesterday. If a comparison was mad
with yesterday's extremely weak close the
market today would hive to be quoted.
higher. Bonis of the hug that were car
ried over from yesterday brought as much
aa 6c more than was bid for them late -tarda.
The market while slow In opening
was reasonably active toward the close and
everything In sight wa aold In very fair
-eLon. A good many of the heavy hogs
brought $7 26(17.80, with extremely heavy
weights below these figures. Mixed hoar
sold largely around $7 47 85. with light
and butcher weights rsnging all the way
from $7 .8"f7 .40 and on up a high aa $7.45
for a few of the choicest.

SH EEP .Sheep receipt were light again
today, only eighteen carloads being reported
In the yards. This leave the total for the
four day at 26.1KO head as against
head for the same day hist week and 6.N.
9"1) head a year ago. It will be noted from
thla that the arrivals arc running very
email for this season of the yeiir, but the
reason for this being the case Is to be
found In the sharp break that took place
at the close of last week and also In the
weakness developed on Tuesday of thl
week, when the large receipts created a
dull and weak market. It would look a if
the country were following a cautious
policy and Is holding bck supplies.
With a very fair demand this morning
buyer c;ot down to business In good sea
eon and picked up the offering In a short
time at prices that were safely l(Vi 15c
tdgher and in come cases perhaps as much
as 26o higher, iamb especially showing the
most advance. Today's advance make up
for any wenknns that may have been de
veloped on Tuesday and more, too, lea vine;
the market at least 26c higher than the
extreme low cloeo last week and In some
cases mure than that. It will be noted,
however, that the market Is very uneven,
due in part at least to the fact that pack
ers are discriminating very much In favor
of light weights, both sheep and lambs.
Thus while a packer in order to get some
thing light will spring the price all buyers
are bearing down hard on heavy weiuht
regardless of how choice or well finished
they may be. Shipper can hardly under
stand why their choice heavy native lnmbs
sre selling atlri.ODir6.50, while . light wes
terns are bringing a high a $6.00 and oc
casionally better. Thus today right good
western lambs of light weight sold up to
$6 10.
There were very few feeders In sight
this morning, but as noted every day this
week, the demand Is far in excess of the
supply and offerings have met with very
ready sale at good, steady prices, there be
ing practically no change In the market
for a number of days back.
