New Tork. Nov. 1. During th greater
part of the active market today trading
manifested no pronounced trend aside from
further advances to new maximums of
certain speculative specialties, mainly thone
comprising the- paper, leather and metal
group. Standard Issues pursued a narrow
and frequently Irregular course, the monot
ony of the movement being relieved by oc
casional substantial advancea In munitions
in the rinal hour an uwent demand for
United Stale. Steel, which liad bojfti little
more than firm, carried tha entire list to
highest levels of the season. Steel changd

Hogs The market today was a great deal
like yesterday's In some respects, cnicago,
with a bis run. sent out bearish wires early,
but the local trade opened fully steady
and late was sharply higher in spots. Ship
pers filled their orders, which wsra not
large, on first rounds, paying steany prices,
and nackars also aot some hoas that way.
A very Insistent demand for weighty bogs
featured the trade, and competition be-
tween parkers on heavies and so Keen
that at the best time soma of them sold aa
much as 10c higher, while butcher weights
ommanded a nickel advance.
The trade In Hants waa the nam spotted
affair as It was yesterday. Borne of the
I In h tor stuff was bought on a steady to
slightly higher basis, but In other cses,
particularly when weights ran tinder 176
pounds, sellers had a hard time evrn getting
bids and sales, when finally made, looked

Bheeg- Monday's small run, of sheep and
Iambs proved a poor Indication of what re
ceipts would be the balance of the week, for
yesterday's supply, which was libera) for
this time of year, was followed by another
of the same sort today. The run was esti
mated at ninety oars, or 24,000 head, and
the supply so far this week foots up 66.14
head, as agalnat 68,800 last week. $6,660 two
weeks ago and 47,068 lass year.
Pat Iamb trade opened out on about a
steady basis again this morning, though the
market lacked the strong undertone which
featured yesterday's session. Several bunches
of the best lambs, mostly eornfeds, sold as
high aa $11.00 early In the day, that price
having been the top all this week.
The detilrable grades were well cleared
before noon, although odd loads of low
draining' stuff were still In first hands at
midday, Closing rounds looked If anything
a- little easy. Most traders called the fat
ewes steady, though the undertone was a
little draggy, and a few quoted the market
weak to a little lower, There were no real
good killing ewes here. t decent kind sell
ing around $7.00, with a bunch aa high as
uood light feeders: were more active than
they have been In quite a while. Demand
was broader, and a good many sales of
the desirable light feeding lambs were re
ported during the early part of the day, A
string of ewe lambs went t 19.80, while
other Kales were reported around $9,600
8.66.' Where weights ran up towards 80
pounds the trade was more uneven. Some
sellers quoted the trade steady all around,
cleaning up everything early, while others
still had their feeders In the pens at mid
day ,and said they had been unable to get
even olose to yesterday's prices. Feeding
and breeding ewes were not nearly so heav
ily supplied as on Tuesday, and the mar
ket was another active steady affair.

Theda Bara's Greatest Triumph
Puts Over Biggest Hit of , Her
Career as Juliet in Magnificent
Production of 4R0ME0 AND JULIET."
We have to feive It to
THEDA BARA. We be
lieve she can do the "unpoi
' sible' ; ; .
Some time afro, when we
read the announcement
. that this finished screen per
former would take the part of
fair Juliet in a sumptuous
screen version of Shakespeare's
immortal love story, "ROMEO
AND JULIET," we scratched
our heads and said, "It can't be
' did." :.. -
(f We even went so far Is to
tell the Fox Film Corpora
tion that we possibly would not
want to run this feature, de
pite their protestations that it
was the best thing Miss Bars
had ever done. . .
As you . possibly know,
there a another screen ver
sion of thissame classic on the
market- with Francis Bushman
and Beverly Bayne in the lead
ing parts, and we candidly ad
mit we thought these two stars
would overshadow Miss Bars in
this production so that she
would look like "thirty cents,"
if you'U pardon our slang-.
Any way, wt are Just In re
ceipt of the New York re
ports of Wid's Magazine, con
sidered by theater managers the
only unbiased reporta obtain
able, as he does not accept any
advertising from film concerns,
and hence does not hesitate to
roast a picture when it needs it
or to make comparisons, as in
the- c3e of ROMEO AND
JULIET. If you will pardon us,

please, we will quote from his
reports on the two respective
features, as follows: , .
flf "The , Fox . Romeo . and
Jl Juliet is human. You can
go the - limit in boosting it.
Don't worry about opposition.
Personally I think this is the
better production of the two."
Then in his remarks about
the ousnman-Bftyne pic-
ture, he says
"If you have the Fox of
fering playine in .oddosI-
tion to this one,1 be careful
the Fox production will please
more people." ; .
He says a lot more stuff
roastine Mr. Francis
Romeo, as he calls him, but as
we do not believe in slinging
mud, we will refrain from quot
ing it .' .
Now understand, the other
.picture is not billed in here
as opposition to us, so we are'
not mad on this score, but we
simply were so surprised that
Miss BARA, who has won most
of her fame as a portrayer of
Vampire parts, could lick a
combination like Bushman and
Bayne that we've simply got to
shout it from housetop to house- -top
and say- our "hats are off -to
you MISS BARA, you're the
actress of the hour.". , . .
tfj Oh, yes, we have this pic
ture for three days, start
ing today, as well as the Nebraska-Oregon
game the whole thing sounds
mighty "Collegishly" whst
ever that is Yest 1
