CHICAGO, Deo. 29,-Fear of Inquiry to
the fall-sown crop In case of a eevere
cold wave rallied the wheat market to
day after an early dip due to better re
porta from the Argentine harvest. The
close was steady. Ho off to M up, com
pared with yesterday. Corn showed a
gain of to to o net, and oats trtf to
Nw-Tsc The close left hog products w'ftiln
:.'V either way from last night's level.
Far below aero weather In the north
west had led to eorne rather anxious In
quiry as to the condition of snow cov
ering In the event that a spread of the
cold should affect winter wheat. A. aum
inary ot the replies made plain-the fart
that the fields everywhere except In Ne.
breaks, western Kansas, and northern
.Michigan, were again bare of protection,
There was an Immediate bracing up of
pricea In consequence.
Further strength developed aa a result
of dispatches from Montreal announcing
that the export demand had grown amss
Ingly and about limited only by scarcity
of ocean freight room. Between the open.
in and the close May ranged from Wi,c
to vKo, with the cloae 9rs, a gain of Sc
over last night. Not a little nervousness
tonh hold of the corn crowd.
Possibility of a equalise In the Decem
ber delivery attrartei attention owing
to a audden temporary bulge of 110 in
that option, the result of buying on the
part of a loading warehouse concern,
t'ssli dealers wre sellers on the sdvance.
May fluctuated between '4(ulto and
'i nc. rUmlng relatively steady, up at
ta-'ec Spot demand was glow. No. 1
yellow was not quoted.
Onte had a strong tone all dav. May
ranged between 47V4THo and 4oic, with
the close Mto up at 4Ww47ic
At the close In provisions the level of
prices appeared to have been substantially
tiiHlntalried all around.

Metropolitan stocks and bonds developed
strength. Mackay company was decidedly
weak, although It recovered most of Its
loss of 4hi points before the end of the
Conditions In tba money market were of
unusual Interest on this, the Isat loaning
day of the year. There was no hint of
the year-end flurry which Is often ex
perienced. Call money did not rise above
4 per cent, as compered with 7 per cent
on the last loaning day of 110. In Berlin,
from 13 to 9 per cent wae paid. The
week's known movement of money point
to a cash gain by the local banks of
flO.oiiO.OjO to I15.OOU.0U0; a condition almost
unprecedented at this period of the year.
The bond market waa Irregular. Wabaan

bered only sixty-three cars, making the
total for the week to date 17.893 head, an
ncrease of 8,700 head as compared with
ast week "and of i.ooO head as compared
with the same period a year ago. ,
Kecelpts this week having been so im-
eral It was apparent this morning that
packers were not In need of any great
number of additional cattlo this week,
and that they were not disposed to work
very hard to secure anything unless It
was something very desirable. The result
was a slow trade on beef steers, out
Uiat, however, la nothing unusual on a
Friday, when the trade is never expected
to be anything mors than dull or Indif
ferent. The pricea paid rangea irom
steady to a little easier, soma .of the
same cattle that were here yesterday
selling 6o lower today.
Cows and heifers did not present any
especially new or interesting features.
Tha Drioea were steady or nearly steady
In many cases, although the tendency, if
anything, was a little easier.
There 'were no stockers or feeders of
any consequence in sight and not enough
to make a test ot trie muritti, uui tue
feeling was about steady.

SHEEP A vigorous 'demand eslste4 In
the sheep barn for good fat lambs and
the' presence, of several toppy strings In
a bather smalt supply resulted In a mar
ket that looked high. .As a matter of faci,
attractive lambs ruled merely strong to
possibly a . dime higher In spots, while
fat sheep moved off at. generally steady
figures. Clears noe of a 6.0no-hed esti
mate was made In very good season, but
the medium and Inferior short-term stuff
proved quiet snd showed m Improvement
whatever. . -
The best fat lambs available landed at
16 20. the highest price paid locally since
August. Near prime limbl sold st t6.lt
and extra good classes changed hands at
l3.Wj6.00. Some shorn lambs brought
A.50, but stock minus fleece Is the excep
tion to the rule st this season of the year
atld can, not be given a definite place In
the list of quotations..
Fit Bheep acted creditably, but the
amount of bueinesa transacted was very
small owing tu men gar . supply. Some
choice ewes brought 1 73 nd wethers that
were high-grade realised 84.10. Fat yekr
llngs reached the even money, to.00.
Compra wltll last week the receipts
lately hare been' limited, a holiday on
Monday being partly responsible. Demand
from killers proved responsive at all times
snd prices. are closing stronger than those
In force a week ago. - Fat lambs show sd-J
varices of 104JiOc, while fat sheep average
firm to a little higher.
The feeder market has almost become a
drwd one, enrnfeds constituting the big
bulk of offerings and sales of stock on
countrly orders have been few and scat
tered. The entire week's purchase of
feeders, according to packers' tab,
amounts to less than' 4.000 head.
