OMAHA, Nov. IS. 1911 i
The new from tho southern hemisphere,
on the growing wheat crop was- -mow
conflicting yesterday than at any tima
alnce the advices t deterioration- com
inenccd to come forward. Tho exportable
surplus In that country was again re
duced and In somo of the praylncea the
losses were said to be sensational, mainly
from hot .winds and Ions drawn out dry
spells. Tho former estlmato on tho ex
portable surplus was placed at , S3.OW.000,
uueuuiD, uut Al.WU.WU ML 111 it, V, ivn Bliaiini
off yesterday. In the faco' of theso ad
vices tho Buenos Ayrcs market c-Doned
HOK loWar yesterday, and .this caused,
many scattered holders to throw their
grain overboard. While It Is true that-
Argentine shipments were estimated at
only 4SS.000 .bushels for this week, thU
la nearly 300,000 bushels lyarger than the
previous week, but only about one-third'
tho shipments for tho corresponding
period a year ago.
The average speculator refused to be
come panicky over the contradlctary
cables from lluenos Ayrea yesterday and
itosarlo. but sold wheat on all tho hard
spots. A feature of the market was tha
heavy selling here on northwestern ac
count, which was believed to have been
in the way of putting out hedges against
ine actual wheat. This was over-balanced,
however, by the reported takings of ex
porters of Canadian wheat, tho figures
being placed as high as 800.000 bushels
fur the day.
A bearish set of statistics on wheat
will bo seen Monday and a good sized
increase in tho visible Is expocted.
Cftili wheat waa unchanged.
Iho Liverpool corn market was off
sharply and the situation there waa said
bo Quito weak, as there is still con
siderable corn under pressure. Western
receipts were SOO.OOO bushels smaller than
tho corresponding day last year. The
country is not selling 1U corn with Uio
freedom with which the trade expected
it would sell at this Beason and around
the present price, and this, more than

Prices on Donrd of Trade.
CHICAGO, Nov. 15. Revival of export
demand here and at Baltimore gave cour
aen today to the bulls In wheat. Accord
ingly the market closed steady at t4c to
net advance. Corn finished Ho
to lifflHc up and oats with a gain of
'.jp to H4jc, out provisions wero down
5c to 15c
By' many traders most significance waa
attached to sales of hard wheat here to
exporters. Corroborated transactions In
this line amounted to 173,000 bushels, and
attracted special notice because of a
uertlons that other similar purchasing
here had been kept private. In addition
Haltlmore sent word of liberal engage
ments of ocean freight room, notably
for Cardiff..
Jlcduced crop estimates put the Argen
tine wheat yield at the lowest figures yet
mentioned, and cut down the exportable
surplus of Argentina to GC.O00.00o bushels,
as against 75,000,000 bushels twenty-four
hours before. Advices from Buenos
Ay res told also of too much rain In ihe
north and of continued drouth In some
of the southern districts.
In the corn pit, uneasiness of Decem
ber shorts brought about a decided
bulge. Offerings of that month were
scanty and the movement from rural
sources gave little comfort. Wet weather
with a forecast of further unsettled con
ditions tended to Increase the dread of
n squeeze Cash houses bought oats
freely. The fact that spot was at a
premium oyer December made the trade
forget about threats of big imports from
Provisions gave way because of receipts

CATTLE There wero no cattle today,
at least nothing ot any Importance, but
for the week receipts have been quite
liberal, running about the tamo os last
week and a little larger than a year ago.
At tho beginning of tho week tne mar
ket showed considerable strength, prices
on Monday being generally lOo higher.
Later on tho advanco on beef steers was
lost the medium to good kinds being at
tho closo of tho week a llttlo easier than
lost, week. Strictly good, long feu cauio
hnva lieen stronrr. the best, yearlings
selling as high as 39.45. Itango beef steers
havo also been strong an ino ween, ue
Ing at the close a llttlo higher oven than
last week. Tho market on cows and heif
ers was higher at tho beginning of the
week and although it was a little easier
later on prices at the close aro fully
steady and In spots possibly a little
stronger than last week. Veal calves
have been strong nnd actlvo all the week
and there has been llttlo or no chango In
the market for bulls, stags, etc.
Blockers and feeders have had a down
ward tendency throughout tho week ow
ing to the lacK OI goou couiury uu,i a
demand. The general run of such cattle
are a big 252 lower than last week and
stock cslves 60o lower- The fact Is that
stock calves are a big dollar lower than
it,. Mnh t me two or three
week ago. Feeding cows and heifers
have eaaed on a nine, nw
kinds being snfely 10315c lower.

were holding for better prices, but it waa
not very long beforo a compromise was

started to move values were generally 6

any time, but everything was cleaned up
in fair season.
Bulk of sales waa mado at 37.56Q7.75.
and tops landed at 17.80. only a nickel
below yesterday's beat price.
Although the market haa been fluc
tuating all week today's values are prac
tically steady with last Saturday. Sup
plies have been liberal on most days, but
lu. hnvini- rlMiiatul has been good.
and most of the breaks have been due to
Blumps at otner pouus.
rri.i.. rM-lntn amounted to about 103
cars, or 7,600 head, bringing the week's
total up to o,ua. " r "v
8.0W head as compared with lost week
and Just about the same as for the corre
sponding week of last yoar. It Is also
the heaviest since the first week in Au
gust, when over 51,000 head came In.
SIIEKP Thero wero about 312 head of
sheep on sale, constating mainly of feed
ing lambs and some cornfed stuff, but
this was not sufficient to make a market.
Tho arrivals during the week total up
80 733 head, being 1X965 more' than last
week, but 1,149 head short of the corre
sponding week a year ago.
The principal features of tho week were
fairly largo receipts, a substantial ad
vance In prices all along the lino on Mon
day and Tuesday and tho sharp elump on
Thursday making the market on fat
Iambs anywhere from 25o to 40o lower
than last week's close and mutton of
ferings fully 25o off. The drop In values
on Thursday was due largely to the big
break at Chicago caused by excessive re
ceipts and the poor condition of the east
ern trade in dressed mutton. Buyers
claimed prices on the local market had
been on too high a level compared with
other points, so were extremely bearish,
causing business to l very slow and
draggy. On Friday a rather light supply
of killers being here, a little Improve
ment was evident, which indicated a
strong undertone at tho close of the
There continued a good active trade
In feeders on most days and closing Quo
tations are steady to lOfitfo better for the
week. The advanco was most noticeable
on the general run ot feeding lambs and
ewes with wethera and yearlings scarce
and showing little it any change.

Embroidery Patterns All The Rage
If one Embroidery pat

how much are 160 worth?
If from one embroidery
pattern a woman or girl
can create a beautiful shirt
waist, Dutch collar, dainty

plished with 160 beautiful
new patterns such as are
