BHEE I Desirable killing lambs met
with a good Inquiry this morning, tho
market opening at about ylbe Usual tlmo
and most ot the tat lambs selling at an
advance of 10020c over yosterday's trade.
Business was active and everything was
sold at a comparatively carl hour. Com
paring the receipts of lambs with a week
ago and two weeks ago they were fairly
large for a Wednesday, but very light
considering what showed up on the cor
responding day one year agd. Sdme thlr-ty-tour
cars, or 9,000 Jieod, of sheep and
lambs were reported in. uallty, on the
whole, was good and tho great part of
the lambs were fat. leaving only a small
porevntage ot the receipts at th disposal
of 'feeder buyers.
Mutton ofterlngs continue scarce, there
belpg only two or three loads of fat ewes
In evidence. What ewes wero on milo sold
at steady to strone nrloes,
Aa previously noted, the feeder1 end 'of
tho trade was rather 1 ghtly supplied
The demand did not soem quite aa good
as of lato and prices showed little It
any change. The good to choice feeder
lambs moved at figures around J6.60&
6.80. Trade was not active aa on tho
last few days, Thero are, really not
enough aged feeder offerings, coming to
make comparisons ,oa to prices.
