day, barring a load or two, and none to
mass a inarsci. r or the week, however,
receipt havs been very heavy, being In
fact tli largest sine four weeks aaro. and
very much larger than for the correspond
ing wee 01 last year. The cause for
this larg run 1 to ba found In the fan
that pnoe at the close of laat week were
very sauaiactory. A It I a well known
fact that the country Is very anxious to
unload cattle owing to the high price of
feed It was not at all surprising thai
Chicago waa completely swamped wlin
receipts mi week. As a result prices
there broke bad I v. Missouri river mar.
kst were also heavily loaded, and they
loltowed Chicago down, so that toer ha
been a heavy decline all along the Hue
at all points.
At the close of the weak It la safe to
quote all kind of killing cattle, that Is,
steers, cow and heirers, as around
4oMi0o lower than last week' close.
Tli best grade of feeder on the other
hand have been In light supply, and for
snai reason price have been but llttl
changed. Mtlll they are poaslbly a trifle
lower than last week. On tli other hand
the medium grade of cattle, which were
In very plentiful supply and not In such
active demand, felt the break In beef
steers to such an extent that they are
around 26c lower. Common and Inferior
cattle may be even lower than that.

HOGo Trade In hogs traveled over the
same even course of previous days, the
only new phase of the market betn a
little strength In lard offerings. In the
general way, big bulk of a fully normal
supply changed hands at steady to strong
figure. Packing demand had an active
tone from start to finish and speculators
put additional life Into movement by the
purchase of about one-sixth of the 123
loud estimate. There waa llttl or no
inquiry from bona fid shippers and most
of the selection made on apeculatlve ac
count were load with a butcher weight
Assortment of supply was much th

stuff ranged from 34.00 down to less than
66.76. There were no pig of consequence
on sale, but prices 'are still quotable at
wide spreud of 34. Win. 26. In most In
stances prices for all weights were paid
readily and the yard at 10:30 o'clock were
Itatner large receipts during tne week
were distributed very creditably over the
five daye and neither buyers nor sellers
claimed any advantage, the market wav
ering about a steady level throughout.
Heavy hogs are closing about a nickel
higher, while light, high-mixed and com
mon butcher offerings show no material
change In values.
Kill K Kl There was nothing doing In
any branch of tha sheep and lamb trade,
as etor(lay u clearance if both feeders
and fat stork was complete. Freeh ar
rtvula conalated of four loads of. fat
lambs consigned direct to a packer, leav
ing the open market barren.
On moat day luring the week re
ceipt seonted to be slightly under re
quirements, the first two runs claiming
th only total lu excess of lO.OwO head.
Offerings usually carried plenty of flesh
for killing purposes and, with the ex
ception of yesterday's supply, lsaa than
10 per cent of each day display was
ahown In feeder tens. The rings season
has praallrally terminated and fed stuff

Demand for well-conililloned stock at
all tiniva lately waa faiily active and
easily atnpie, producing a trade that held

tloud to choico lamhe are now 'selling
around 35.UUll.iS and anything moving
liclow 36 Is rather unattractive. Fat,
handy wethers sold as high as $4.00414 10
and topuv eu es closed around 63 UI. The
lat yearling market waa poorly tested,
owing to meager offerlnK. but som.i.nn
goud In this line would probably land
around 6t.6uer4.7f. Compared with a week
ao, current quotations on fat stuck aver
ages fully steady, but packers favored the
l-ctter ciaaeea aa a rule and discrimina

strings uaa a Utile more pronounced than
Feeder trade presented no new features
wiTlh mentioning, supplies being light
with the country demand rather quiet.
According to tarlous acattrred sales,
values are closing firm wlih a week

gives a total of about l.&ai head.
