CATTLE Receipts were very fair for
a Wednaaday, with little notable change
in tne general character of th offerings.
Quality continues excellent but there 1
a very apparent lack of weight in the
cattle, and for this reason . tha prima
heavy grades ara still greatly sought by
coin arassec Deer men and snipping buy
ers. Htrlctty desirable cattle of all
weights, however, found a ready, sal at
fully ateady prices, while th bearish ad
vices from eastern market had a some
what depressing Influence on th market
for the medium to poor cattle, and these
ruled anywhere- fron; weak to litrilac
lower than Monday. Trading waa reason
ably active all forenoon and a very fair
Clearance wa made In -good season.
Tha market for cow a snd heifers waa
In much th sama condition aa on Tues
day. Anything at all desirable In the
way of butcher or beef stock waa picked
no eagerly at fully recent auotatlona.
while tha market waa more or less un
even and uncertain on oannera and cut
ter that made up a large proportion of
th limited supply.' Veal calves were In
actlvo demand -and fully steady, but
there was a somewhat easier tons to the
market for bulls, stags and rough Mock
generally. . .
Activity and strength continue to char-
acterls tha trade In Blockers and feeders
and so far this weak th demand has
exceed ad tha eupply. Price ara quit a
little higher thaa last week for good to
choice steer and heifers of all weights
and the undertone to tha market la de
cidedly strong, although tha volume ot
business Is necessarily limited.-

H006 Oeneral fwndiUona In the hog
trade tavaeed sellers so that a good
atsed run had little or no bearish Influ
ence. The demand from all quarter
ruled active from tb start enabling aalea
mea to obtain higher prices for tat big
bulk of afferlngs. larger drove were
put up at advance ot fully a nickel,
good heavy grades usually allowing flat
nickel gains while mixed and butcher
clstsss frofiumtly brought figures tks
Tha run wa estimated at 1XSM head
aad a very respectable portion of the
crop 4watsted of attractive medtutn
weight atuff. Movement throughout the
session waa creditable and th yards
war practically cleared before lajs

SHEEP Aside from a little more ac
tivity in th aheep and lamb trade, the
market In general was a repetition of yes
terday's buainesa Receipts were llsnt
snd quality of offerings did not afford
peckers much freedom In selecting well
finished stock. The demand had a fair
tone and prices ruled lust about ateady.
Yard estimate called for a total of only
X.J0I head, and bulk consisted of iambs,
the same as recently. Wooled strings were
the exception, shipments In fteece being
too scarce to- properly try out th list of
values. Wooled lambs were not quotable
above and wooled ewej were none
too popular from tT.-i downward. A few
spring lambs were included In tha run.
but Inquiry for this daea of stock la by
no means aa active as it was a week or
ten days ago.
- Shorn lambs and shorn sheep changed
