cause of continued unfavorable reports
from India and a reported change In the
crop conditions in Argentina, together
with the reduction In both the Russian
and Manitoba offerings, the entire trade
was stirred up. This was the case, espe
cially with those who put out short lines
Friday1 and Saturday of last week. To
make matters worse for the shorts It
was reported that on the Liverpool curb

Another bullish factor and one that
In board of trade parlance may be
called a "telling" help to the bulls, was
a decrease of 2,241,000 bushels In the vis
ible, where an increase was looked for.
In addition to this world's shlpmentas
were only 13,600.000 bushels, where a total
of oyer 15,000,000 was estimated. This re
duction was caused by the mistake that
was made by Bradstrcet's In figuring up
tno clearances from America, last -week,
which were placed at 8,333.000, bushels,

elevator companies put 60,000 bushels of

general snow fall throughout Kansas and
Nebraska, making the best conditions for
'the growing crop. Accordingly short
sellers who had withdrawn from the
market yesterday, came back In force
and put quotations under on amount of
pressure that the bulls of even the most
stubborn sort could not entirely with

a greater fall had It not been for the
fact that primary receipts were much
smaller than a year ago. Further sus

CATTLE Receipts were very moderato
for a Tuesday, only about 6.0M head be
ing reported in, making tho total for the
ys, X2,25' a llng off ot about
7,000 head as compared with the corre
sponding two days a year ago. It is
ery evident that country shippers are
resenting tho break In the market early
last week and they are holding back
supplies with the Idea of giving tho mar
ket an opportunity to recover.
With very moderate supplies of beef
steers In sight this morning and with a
fair buying demand packers were out In
the yards In good season and desirable
beef steers sold freely at steady prices.
Tho big bulk of the cattle Changed hands
at an early hour. As high as $9.60 was
paid for a bunch of choice yearling steers
Cows and heifers were also In fair de
mand and they, too, Bold In about the
same notches as yesterday. Wlhllo the
trado was not particularly active there
was a fair movement and practically
everything had changed hands in good
season In the morning.
Strictly good feeders were also In good
demand and prices on cattle of that de
scription did not show much change. On
the other hand the less desirable kinds
were slow to a little lower. A snow
storm, accompanied by high wind, did
not help the feeder trado, an a matter
of course, and made speculative buyers
less anxious to load up on tho common
to medium grades.

shape Uits morning, first sales being
made- at an advance of about 10c. A heavy
fall of snow delayed traffic considerably,
and when buyers first started out a small
portion of the estimated supply had
shown up. For a while buyers took
everything just as It came In, but to
ward 9:30 they began to get pretty well
filled up, and as there were indications
that the receipts would be even larger
than tho early estimate values began to
weaken. Prices never regained their
early strength and tho balance of the
offerings sold at figures that looked to
be about a nickel below the opening.
On the whole the market can be quoted
as 6&IO0 higher. Bulk of the sales was
made at $7.65(37.70, with quite a sprink
ling up to $7.76, the latter price being
the top. Trade was fairly active during
the early rounds, but the receipts came
In so slowly that it made things more or
less draggy along toward the close, and
It was well along toward noon before a
clearance was made.
Supplies totaled In the neighborhood of
70 cars, or 6,300 head. For tho week the
receipts amount to 6,826, about 1,100 smaller
than a week ago and over 2,509 short of
the corresponding days of last year,
SHEEP Most all kinds of killing sheep
were steady to strong, trade being
brisk right rrom the outset and
nnd packer buyers having a somewhat
limited supply of decent killers to pick
from. There wero no strictly choice of
ferings, consequently the range of prices
wus much the same and no really toppy
sales were made. The best lambs sold
up to $7.00, with the bulk ot the good
ones selling from that on down to $6.85.
It ts still the consensus ot opinion If any
right choice lambs wero on sale they
would bring as much us $7.25. Fat ewes,
wethers and yearlings were again scarce.
Tho situation in feeders ahowed np
material change. Strong weight feeding
lambs of the best quality continued In
very moderate supply and the bulk of
such grades as were on the market was
of the light class, this being usual at
this time of the year. Early In the fore
noon a string of feeding lambs was
picked np at $8.30 and somo traders
thought If some strictly good grades of
the rlrht weight were available they
would sell nt $0.SS. According to weight
and quality feeding lambs might be qouted
at J5.2C3J6,35. According to weight and
quality feeding Iambs might be quoted
at $3.mr8.35. Aged sheep suitable for
feeding were in light supply and as in
the case of lambs sold on K steady basis.
Tho estimate placed today's receipts nt
24,000 head, being light as compared with
the same day of recent weeks and tho
corresponding day a year ago.

A Million-Dollar Land Oiler
On Easy Terms. The Republic Trust Company Will Sell a Million
Dollars' Worth of South Texas Land, in a Single Body, or n Blocks
The land consists o! about 3C.O00 acres, situated In Cham
bora County, twenty-seven miles, in a southwesterly direction,
from Beaumont, and nearly fifty, miles from Galveston. It is in
a solid body and is a flrie black prairie soil with abundant natu
ral drainage. There aro six flowing artesian wells on tho prop
erty, and the rainfall Is always abundant.
Tho Gulf and Interstate llallroad, which is a part of tho
great Santa Fe system, traverses the eastern line of this property,
and there is water transportation on threo sides of the land.
Oyster Bayou on the weBt, Onion Bayou on the south and East
Bay on tho east. From many of these bayous, each of which
forms a boundary line on this land, there is direct water trans
portation to Galveston,, Port Arthur and neighboring towns,
which is now utilized for the transportation of farm products
and othor freight and passengers. The great lntercoastal canal
will pass through a portion of these bayous and will thus bo ac
cessible from three sides of the land. Tho south boundary line
of this property extends to within a few miles of the Gulf coast.
It has splendid natural drainage to the bayous surrounding it,
and practically every acre of this entire body of land Is ready for
tho plow without a penny's worth at expense in preparation. The
entire tract is prairie land and the one lone live oak that has stood
sentinel for a century, about center of the north half of tho tract,
Is known as "Oak Grove." Three or four thousand acres nearest
the coast line will require Bomo inexpensive drainage, to render
It reliable for crops during yoars of excess rainfall.
That It la adapted to tho profitable growing of fruits and
vegetables has been abundantly proved, and that staple crops
here grow to full perfection Is attested by the actual experience
of practical farmers during a dozen years past. The corn shown
in this advertisement was grown near the ranch house on this
land, selected, nlantcd and riilf lvntp.i in Mm rrnrtn mnm,.
aSII5WsBaBirslsH acterlstle of tho ranch farmer, who grows each year twenty-flve
m!ifmmBlm'iSmi t0 "'ty acres of feed stuff for winter use. These cars were
yuueu irom me staiK at ranaom, ny a man who didn't know
corn, during the third week in AugUBt. Sixty-five bushels to
the acre was the estimated yield when this corn was iaken from
the field. Cotton, under favorable conditions, yields a balo or
more to tho acre, and the cane crop throughout (this belt is al
ways abundant because of the fertility of the bo1, and the ab
sence of frost until the year has practically closed.
This piece of property is. in all Drobabllitv. the ht rninni.
zation proposition In Texas, and wjll be sold In its entirety at
a price and on terms exceedingly attractive fpr development purposes. Or, it will be sold, for im
mediate development, at satisfactory prices and terms in small blocks.
