almost entirely on the .varying proa porta

there wer practically nothing received at
the other MIourl river points. The five
daya' total here 1 111,111 head. Which tl
11,000 heavier than last week, twice as
large a two week age and greater even
then for th nam day last year by nearly
From a alter' standpoint, th lamb trad
wa In anything but satisfactory shape.
Packers had used their last day of grace
for loading stuff for the east and every
thing bought today would have t be killed
here, and If the strike goes through,' pos
sibly kept here for soms time. Two of the
packer claimed they were loaded to capac
ity, and had live lambs on hand besides,
whll th other two wore uncertain a to
what they would be able to do, and made
no move during the forenoon. Seller tried
their best to get offer of some sort, but
none wer forthcoming, thoush th talk ran
that when lamb started selling -It would be
at 110.00 and under, or all of 16S6c below
yesterday. A few feeders were bought dur
ing th forenoon at price that wer called
steady, one band that was wet bringing

deal to fat stuff at the same price. A
