Hogs -After running vary moderate for
a eoupls of days receipts got back Into their
normal atrlds today, 111 ears or something
Ilka 14.100 heed, being In sight at mldfore
hoon. with prospects that a few more might
get In. The total for the week la atlll very
small, and even allowing for the fact that
Monday was a Holiday, thla doea not com
pare very favorably with 11,110 last week,
10.221 two waska ago and 10,031 last year.
So far aa the packera were eooeeraod the
market was another rather slow affair.
Shipper trade waa active, order buyara tak
ing a pretty good a ha re of the run on early
rounds at prices that wale strong to aa
much aa 10c up, er genei-ll. u nickel higher
than yesterday, J '
Ths killer trade was never very active.
Shipping activity helped aellera out on the
better klnda, and quite a bit of atoll moved
oo packing account at prices that were
stsady ta as much aa a nickel higher. Buy
ers were all slow about taking hold, though,
and It took moat of the forenoon to make
anything like a clearance at the early ar
rivals. Last trains were being yarded at the time
of cloelng tab) report. Buyero ehowed little
Interest in anything except weighty classes,
which up to this time had sold In about the
same notches all day. MUod and butcaera
were alow snd, if anything, easier on late
rounds, while lights were sticky and hard
to sell at any pries. The general market
looked a little higher, despite ths lata weak
noes The spread is steadily growing wider,
there being a good ahowlng today all the
way from II 16 ta 10.20, with quite a
prickling aa high aa 110.10, ths top.

Sheen Another fairly liberal sheep and
lamb ran put tn its appearance today. Early
eetlmatea placed the aupply at forty-four
loads, or 10.100 head, but lodging by the
amount at atuff reported back at 11 a'olock
these Aguree will probably bo overran. So
far this week total offerings are 11,111
head, aa compared with 21,114 laat week,
ft. Ill twe weeks ago and 11,134 a year
The early rounds of the lamb market
lacked the life ehown on previous deya of
the week, Packera were all looking around,
but were talking generally easier prlcee.
while aellera thought that with small rune
and stronger prices everywhere else, they
were entitled to aeme advance here. What
little atuff sold early looked about etaady.
one bunch af lamba waa sold aa high aa
113. II, the now top made yesterday, while
good handy weight owe made a new mark
for the aeaaon of ft.lf, coming within tic
of the record for the yards. A fair ta pretty
eood kind sold around fl.71OI.l0.- A load
of clipped lamba made fll.10, a new yard
When the bulk of the eapvly did atart ta
move. It waa at prloaa that were ateady to
e much as 10c above yeaterday. A few
vara of choice lambu sold aa high aa 111 10
(all.ll, the latter price being a new record
for this pelat, with the big end of. the de
sirable atuff around 111.21 and lean. The
general run af the offerings waa of a very
good quality. When the later lamba began
romlng In. they found early arrivals pretty
well cleared and llttla dolna. Barker art.

that very little) wheat will be aold from thla

practically placed the eastern business at a
standstill, and if the situation con tin 0 as
much longer ths trad will be placed in a

Omaha Lads Visit With
Head of the Kearney School
A steady stream of boys poured
into the office of Gus Miller, proba
tion officer, in the court house, all day
long to visit with R. V. Clark, super
intendent of the State Industrial
school at Kearney, who spent the
day in Omaha. The boys were ones
who at one time or another in their
careers thus far have had their food
and lodging paid for by the state at
the Kearney institution. Mr. Clark is
interested in what becomes of "his
boys" after they ser e their time in
the institution, and as Omaha fin
ishes a greater number than any one
city, he always has a busy time re
newing old acquaintances when he
visits here.

Blockade Which Tied Up Traf
' fic for Sixteen Honrs is
Cleared Up.
swnw form teet deep
After being completely tied up for
sixteen hours, Union Pacific trains
have begun to move again, and it is
expected that passenger traffic along
this line will be returned to normal
before many more hours. .
' For sixteen hours not a train'
moved on the Union Pacific between.
Laramie and Rawlings, in Wyoming.'
A snow blockade of thirty miles pre
vented the turning of a wheel. Four
feet of snow covered the track for
this distance and, with a fierce wind
blowing the snow so that a person
could not see his hand extended out
in front of him, it was found impossi
ble to clear away the blockade until
the storm abated sufficiently for the
crews to go to work.
Over twenty trains were tied up by
the blockade. Many of these trains
were annulled and resumed their
journey as sections of other trains.
Several trains coming into Omaha
from the west are running in four
and five sections. ,
The blockade has been cleared
away and as soon as the annulled
trains reach their destinations it is
believed the traffic will be quickly re- ,
stored to normal.
