Hags From the sellers' standpoint yes
terday's close was very unsatisfactory.
Packers' blda got ateadlly worse as the day
advanced and a Rood many of the later
sales were lower than Monday. In fact the
t-los was so mean that sellers carried over
flity loads for today.
This carry-over, added to the heavy fresh
supply, made today's offerings even larger
than yesterday's. Other markets were also
overloaded and a general reaction aet In.
The local market waa another very uneven
affair, movement being draxry and prices
very Irregular. Shippers bought some hogs
early that were mainly 10916c lower,
though some scratch sales were made that
were nesrly ateatly and packers took sonic
early that ware not much more than 10c
down. A" & Reneral thing, though, their
bids showed declines of 16e or more.
Buyer tried hard all morning to gat hogs
at weaker price than they ga on early
rounds, but up to noon they had not had
much success, nearly all the sales made
up to that time being; somewhere around 10
916c lower. Movement waa more active
In the session, than it was early, hut to
wards the close slowed down again. At
noon practically all the good weighty hogs
that were In had sold, and bulk of the
butcher weights yarded up to that time
had changed hands. Wherever tt was pos
sible, though, buyers followed yesterday's
plan of leaving out lights and midday found
quite an accumulation of lights still In
the pens, as well as a sprinkling of mixed
and butcher stuff. Bayers were not even
trying to buy a Rood many of the under
went ta and wanted butchers at easier
prices than they brouRht early. There ware
veral trains aUU oat at the time of
vl'-eing this report.
Bulk of the hogs sold during the fore
noon landed at $10.109 19.60. Thla spread
does not take Into account the lights, for
not enough had sold to show what they
were worth. Beat beavlea rnached $10.60. 80
far as quality was concerned the run was
almost as good aa ye terday, but buyers
atl complained of lack of weight.

sheep and lamb supplies were real liberal.

The fact that only a very small share of
the estimated offering had been yarded up
to a late hoar tn the forenoon was mainly
responsible lor another araggy market
With so Ronaroas a run In sight packers
were not In a harry to ail their orders and
refused to Ret Interested early. All the
bids mads as to mid forenoon showed
low tendency, and a load or two that had
sold looked. If anything, weak to a Utile
lower, but sellers all predicted that wh-n

show m tie or no change.

liquidation and a little trade selling. The
opening waa unchanged to 1 point higher,
but there was very tittle aupport In evidence
and the unaettted ruling of other markets
seemed to bring in Increased offerings dur

higher ocean freight rates might attract
better supply of tonnage from Braill on

Omaha Future Market.
The openlnR prices on wheat were a trifle
lower and heavy selling brought about a
rather decline In the May and July options,
the May closing at a 3tto decline and the
July at lo decline.
There was no news of partlonlar Interest
concerning wheat ami today's decline was
the result of heavy selling by the bears and
long covering by the bulls, who think the
market has had a sufficient upturn.
Corn and oats were rather quiet and
while corn followed the break In wheat
oats were steady, the May option closing
unchanged, while May corn waa lo lower
at the close.

tendency to higher values except just at the
outset, initial declines appeared to be due
largely to lnferrnres that the German chan

offered you in this Sale.
A number of mixed cars of Furniture have
reached us this week and are being sampled and
