but the support of later months and the

proved during the afternoon on continued

firm owing to apprehensions that a

CATTLiS Receipts of cattle were llgnt.
as usual on a Friday, only sixty-three
cars being reported- q. This leaves the
run for tne five days this week at 14.2)
neaa, which Is over 2,0u0 head smaller
than a year ago and 13,000 head smaller
man tor tbe same days last week.
The demand tor beef cattle, and for
that matter for practically all kinds of
ttle. Is usually Very slack on a Fri
day and the trade slow and dull. He
celpts this week, however, have been
so small that It was very evident that
pacners requirements were not satis
fied. The result was that buyers wers
out In the yard early In the morning and
everything In the way ot desirable beef
steers onanged nanns in very good sea
aon In tba morning at prtcts tnat wore
strong as compared with yesterday, or
20 to 40 cents higher than last week's
Cows and heifers were also strong as
compared with yesterday and the market
for the week Is 20 to too higher.
There were no stock cattle or feeders
of any consequences in the yards this
morning and not enough to make any
test of the market. The best feeders are
selling just about as high as any time,
but common. Inferior and light cattle
have been a little lower this week.

STOCKERS AND FEEDERS.
HOOS Demand for hogs lost Its keen
edge on a market occupied by about 110
loads, and the bulk of business waa trans
acted at figures steady to a little lower
in spots. Described more accurately, good
heavy hogs sold at levels abuut steady,
while bacon and high mixed stuff gen
erally ruled weak to a nickel lower,
packing orders were filled in leisurely
fashion from start to finisn, and outside
buyers were the tJnly ones to get out In
good season snd purchase promptly.
Something like twenty loads, mostly 2)
to 260-pound averages, found a shipping
and speculative outlet.
The yards were pretty well cleared of
total offerings before 11 o'clock, but sev
eral of the leading buyers dropped out Ot
the trade toward the close, and final
sales averaged weak, with the demand
dull and druggy.
I'sual spreads were preserved between
heavies, butchers and lights, the three
classea selling at the high, middle and
low prices, respectively. The beat lard
hogs on sole brought $6.20, while good
light animals landed around fo.l&ijo.is).
only a few bundles of pigs were avail
able and prices for little stuff showed no
uhan;,ea of consequence.

8HEEP-Trade In sheep snd lambs was
limited to a supply of only 2.S0O head,
mostly corn-fed lambs and ewes. De
spite this small estimate none of the
regular buyers took verv much Interest
In the market and movement seemed al
most as lifeless as It frequently Is on a
tiny when receipts prove excessive.
Steady prices were maintained, hut the
task of keeping values at unchanged
levels was more or less difficult.
Good native lambs sold at $5.W and
some fed westerns that were nothing to
brag about landed at 35.70. Strictly
choice lambs are quotable up to the
even money 16.00. Pat ewes remained In
notches almost Identical with those In
force yesterday, the spread between cull
and prime quality amounting to $100 or
more. Scarcity of wethers and vearllngs
left trads In $3..-iO&4.76 classes nominal.
What few feeders arrived sold readllv,
prices ruling stronger. The country de
mand at this time of the year is rather
erratic, of course, and with supplies
seasonably small novlefinlte set of val
ues can be quoted. The four days' pur
chase of feeders, according to packers'
tab, amounts to onlv 7,6iJO head.
Compared with a week ago, fat lambs
ore closing about 15c higher, an advance
that applies especially to good to choice
grades. Medium stuff has shown little,
If sny, Improvement. Sheep are selling
strong to a little higher In spots, ewes
bringing; as much as $3 00, with extra
good wethers claiming a $4.10 limit.
