CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS.
Oa Praflt-Tsiuig W heat Prices Go lamer,
But React ami Advance. . .
Chicago, Oct II. Although at limes un
settled today, wheat nrlcea finished at tha
hlgheat closing figures this sesson. A sharp
advance In quotations at Buenos Ayree
caused anxiety among shorts here, and It
waa avldent that foreigners were picking
' up wheat on all outbacks. Gains amounted
to lo ta le net, with December closing
at 11.104 to 11.70, and May at 11.744
to 11.70. Corn showed a rise of e to
e, and oata of 0o to rttc The out
come for provisions was unchanged te
40c higher. . . ,
Attention ' of wheat traders focused
chiefly on developments regarding the
drought In Argentina. Flrat reports that
, no rain of any consequence had fallen
were succeeded by rumors that crops In
the central and southern portlona of Ar
gentina had received beneficial moisture.
Afterward, however, advlcea appeared to
Indicate that the drouth wen hot only un
broken but that the crop damage already
accomplished or now In proapect had re.
1 aulted in a ' sensational rise ot prices at
Buenos Ayrea. The raeult waa that early
, sellers here rushed to cover, eepeclally In
tl last thirty minutes of the session, and
that a lively upturn was-In progress as
dealings came to an end.
. Export business proved larger than waa
generally expected. Th English govern
ment waa aald lo be actively In the wheat
market and It waa aald that another gov
ernment had purehaaed 11,400 to T0,040
flecks of flour. In thla connection, a good
deal of Interest waa dlaplayed aa to the
amount of wheat left lor export In the
Untied States. News of the shooting of the
Austrian premier came too late ta affect
the market. . v
Cora, like theat. had the hlgheat does
yet this seaeon. The lata upturn In wheat
. favored the bulla, and so, too, did heavy
shipments from here. Oats showed some
Independent strength. Exports for thy day
were 721,000 bushels , as . agalnat 106,000
bushels a year ago.

Cattle Receipts for the week amount to
66,711 head, the largest week's run In the
history of the market Until this week the
record waa held by th week ending October
16, 1116, during which time receipts amount
ed to 62.421 head of cattle.
Under the Influence of the very heavy
recelpta on Monday, not only here, but at
every other point, prices broke sharply and
wore again lower on Tuesday. Since that
time values have been firming up, so that on
killing cattle the decline has been entirely
recovered. Thus at the close of the week
beef steers, cows and heifers. In fact all
kinds of killers, are practically steady with
the previous week's close. Good stock cattle
and feeders are also steady, but the medium
to common kinds are unevenly lower, being
perhaps 1036o lower than last week's close

Hogs Thero wss a very good Saturday
run of hogs here for this time of year, early
estimates calling for sixty-nine loads, oJ
about 4,800 head, and the prospects being
that. If anything, official figures would
overrun this. The week's total Is 24.733
head, which l 1,000 larger jan a week
age and 6,600 heavier than last year, al
though It Is over 2,000 short of two weeks
ago. On several days this week when the
market opened higher, late trains have fail
ed to share in the full advance, and sellers
had some apprehensions as to how 'the last
arrivals would fare today. Their fears were
groundless, for when one big train came in
shippers had fresh orders, and as packer
droves lacked quite a little of, being filled
out, competition was Just as keen as ever
and prices were fully steady to, if anything,
stronger than any other time.
The general market was a nm nickel
above yesterday's average. Bulk sold at
$9.86010.00, and' the top reached $10.10.
Prices today are 46c higher than a week
ago, and are the highest of the month to

Sheen The sheep and Iamb run ts be
ginning to taper off, receipt the last week
having been the amallVst since the early
part of September, though they show a
slight Increase over the corresponding week
of last year. Fat lamb demand has been
good all week, and values have moved up
about 26c since Friday of last week. The
best lambs here yesterday sold at $10.26
ana me weet. s top was 610.60. In fact,
the range of prices for anything decent has
been very narrow lately, nothing at all de
sirable having sold under $10.00 this week,
while the last two or three days It has
been largely a $10.26 market.
Aged sheep were In fairly liberal supply j
early In the week and on on nr tn risvi 1
fat ewe prices were forced dawn, quotations
at the close of the week being 10016c un
der last Friday,
Thero was really little change in the feed
ing lamb market at any time of the week.
Choice feeders ar very scarce and the few
that come are snapped up read! iy even
when the market on other grades Is slow.
A few of the best are selling around $10.00.
