HllliKl'-In moi-t rcKpects hf nnd
lamb trade Involved prices slendy all
Ionic the line. Aside from the fact
that pncklriK demand was featured by
more f ipeilum, tlia market an a whole
had few plinxi-it that were not shown yes
terday. Itccelpt gave h lotal of fnlrly
iltrxe size and the character of the run
was much the same a that of yexterday's
ri'pply, fed and wsrmed-up cIiihhch consti
tuting bulk. Hrvno stuhble-fed and
rtrnight grans stock arrived from ths
tvtst, but range offerings are becoming
smaller each day, resulting In a feeder
display that lurks variety.
Kst sheep and lambs with dressing
promise were favored In killing circles,
the same as recently, and sold more read
ily than the doubtful, warmed-up strings,
Toppy fed native lambs reached 35.30
early and a near prime article landed at
li.ift. Ths market for inferior quality
lambs ruled largely under the tWOti mark
and proved more or less erratic
Mat tired muttons moved off In good
season, but Inquiry for big stuff was by
no means urgent, as ths product gener
ally Is neglected when brought Into com
petition with Thanksgiving poultry and
lambs. Killers assert that present pur
chases are being put away for ruture dis
posal and the fact that fat sheep are ob
viously worth the money becomes th
only visible Inducement In buying quar
ters. Kat range wether sold early at 13.40
and ft string of heavy wethers and year
lings realised 33.UO. Kwe sales wer In
fieqiient, hut anything good In this line
would probably get action around 13.00.
Feeder trade was given very fair sup
port from country buyers and prices re
mained lust about steady. Hume warmed
up stuff was taken out tor a second
finish at figure that did not interest
packers, but the feeder trmlo in straight
runners afforded the best opportunity for
selection. Yesterday's purtnase on coun
try account amounted to dniy 6,6U0 head.

CHICAUO. Nov. 21. An unexpected de
crease In the Kuropean visible wheat
supply resulted today In giving tne
price here an upward tilt. The tailing
off, which amounted to 1,440,000 bushels,
compared with last week Is due lo the
fact that the total Is now more than
32,uU0,Ouu bushels Ism than at the coire
spindlng time a year ago. Report of
showers In the northern portion of the
Argentine also nerved to encourage the
bulls. Little new demand developed,
however, and the market later suffered a
reaction. The opening was HiWWo higher.

SHOPPING SEASON IS NOW ON
Open Season for Christina Buyeri
Outlined by Merchants.
EAKLY TOURS ADVANTAGEOUS
By Vising; hop Before Christmas
Hash Bayer llar More Time
nd Are Given Experience of
Omaha shoppers did so much better
by themselves and by the salespeople In
the stores by early shopping last Christ
mas season that they will be asked to
repeat this season. It took three or four
years of constant repetition of the
slogan, "Do your Christmas shopping
early," before people took heed, but last
season thoy took heed to such an extent
that conditions were noticeably Im
proved and the merchant hope they will
do even better thl year.
At a meeting of retail merchant yes
terday afternoon at the Commercial club,
nt the call of Chairman C. D. Beaton of
the retail trade committee of the club,
Robert Manley of the Brandei Stores
and C. E. Dlack were appointed a com
mittee to outline a campaign of advei
t Ins calculated to induce Omahans to
do their shopping early and lessen the
mad rush of the last few days before
x Benefit to Shoppers.
About the best argument brought out
at the meeting, from the standpoint of
benefit to the shoppers themselves, was
this: "If you shop during the last week
of the season you will perhaps be waited
upon by extra clerks who are not famil
iar with the stocks. If you shop now,
you will be waited upon by the regular
clerks, who are thoroughly familiar with
the stock and who will give you tho
best service possible."
Other arguments which will bo used
"If you shop early you will get your
pick of the holiday good; If you put It
off the best may be gone
"You can shop now with much more
comfort than you can Juet before Christ
mas. "For the sake of the salespoeple In the
stores, whose energies will b taxed to
the utmost just before Christmas, do
your Christmas shopping now."
There are now but twenty-seven mora
shopping days before Christmas.
Price of Crackers
Why are prices of crackers advanced to
the same figure at the same time all
over the United States by all the cracker
Thl 1 a question mystifying Omaha
grocers. A few years ago young biscuit
companies all over the country were cry
ing out against the National Biscuit com
pany, called the "trust," and were boost
ing their business by leaps and bound
throurrh competition with the National. -
Now that the young companies hav
grown big there la no competition, . say
the grocer. Soda crackers and oyster
crackers In bulk have been advanced V
cent and aire now 6K cent ft pound.
"All the factories make thl price at
the same time," said o, big Omaha re
taller. "They didn't wait for th Na
tional to name the price and then grace
fully follow after a few day. Things
have come to uch a pais that there is
absolutely no difference In price between
the varlou companies, either on plain
or fancy "good. When you. get a new
price from one company you will know
at once that all the other concern put
the sama price In effect at the same
"The queer thing about It la that flour
and wheat were both declining In price
when the boost wa made In crackers."
