CHICAGO, bee. 111. Despite the bullish
nature of the government report the
wheat market today closed weak. Mis

ter 01 Ia.i'1, nowever, there was a tew
sales of cattle that looked even higher
than that. Practically everything in
aignt changed hanaa in a very short
time alter tne market opened.
What has been said regarding beef
steere would apply equally as well to
cows and heifers. They, too. were active
sellers at prices that were loc higher

erything Moid In a very snort time.
'the country demand tor Blockers and
feuders thus far tnis week has proven
very light. Speculators had cattle on
hand today for winch there were few
buyers, and they In their turn were very
8iow about talking on hand more stock.
Aa a result tne demand lor what few
stuck cuttie and teeners were In today
was light and the market Blow to lower.
It must be remembered, however, that
stock catue and feeders did not decline
to the same extent as killers last weea,
o that tney were still hign after taking
into account any weakness that may have
been developed today.

HOOS The main phase of hog trade
appeared In the an ol supply as related
to breadth ft Ooiiuiiid. Kooeipta were
large and orders heavy and pienliful, es
pecially toward the close of the session.
Prices opened steady to sirong and
quickly became strong to a nickel blgner
under the stimulus of free buying, late
business usually allowing the full ad
vance. Klgbt around U.utv head of stuck
arrived, au estimate tnat cleared com
pletely before lw:8o o'clock.
Oifeiinga afforded a free choice of
weights and duality, the same aa recently,
but averages under 33a pounds proved tne
rule, and really heavy hogs maue up leas
than one-fourth ot the total. Km p pare

SH REP Two separate markets ..i .1
for good and medium classes of sheep
and lambs, attractive corn-feds ruling
active, steady to stronger In spots, while
me common armies proved rather slow,
with trend to values earlier. Discrimina
tion In packing circles was more plainly
iiuwn man rerenny ana tne spreads be
tween fair and well conditioned stuff
widened more or less. One of the reasons
lor-tnis pnase or the trade was found In
the character of sunrilv. The Hiimniad
total of 6.&H) head consisted largely of
e....i i-i.iiioiieu eiocn.
In fat lambs a 36.00 top was 'made on
some strictly choice nutlve.t, the best fed
westerns selling tip to 85.80. Fair to good
fat lambs landed below 35.60 in most
Instances, 85.25 buying offerings that had
left the strong weight feeder class several
Matured muttons moved within spreads
almost as wide as those apparent In the
lamb market, but the inquiry for bulk of
wethers, ewes, etc., seemed to be more
responsive than the demand for lambs.
Extra good lUO-pound fed western wethers
reacnea 4.w ana a dozen head of 197
pound natives also landed at the even
money. The natives were show sheep,
pure-bred Cotswolds. Fat ewes sold all
the way from 33.65 down to less than
3X00, but anything moving under 83.28
lacked finish. There were not many
yearlings on sale, 84.50tf4.75 helng quota
ble for something hlnh-irrRrte in this linn
Nothing happened in the feeder market
early for the reason that supplies were
very scanty. Firm prices were paid for
the few bunches that moved on country
orders late in the session and the situa
tion as a whole remained unchanged.
Yesterday's entire feeder buy amounted
to 4.0U0 head.
