Sheep The supply Included several cars of
feeders going through, but oven after de
ducting those, offerings of lambs were still
feaereus. Reports of advances elsewhere
caT Mllerg every reason to expect higher
prices, and they priced their holdings at
harp upturns, but packers, who are ex
periencing a shortage of refrigerator ears
and had to carry some lambs over from
last week, made first offers at lower levels.
Old aheep were fairly active at figures
that were fully steady to If anything
stronger. Among the earlier sales were
Navajo wethers at $11.16. and a little pack
age of Navajo yearlings at 111.36, both these
prices being the highest ever psld here.
Light western ewes sold to $10.76, breaking
the record for the market, and other light
and handy ewes reached $10.86910.70.
It was along towards midday when pack
rs finally began buying lambs. Movement
sroa anything but aclivs, and several loads
were stlil unsold at a lata hour. As a
general thing, sales when finally made
looked almost steady with last week's close,
though la spots reductions of anywhere
from a shade to 10c was noted, Packers
ay they are vnable to get an adequate
umber of refrigerator cars, and paid steady
prices only under protest, though at nearly
all other markets lambs sold to better ad-
vantage than they did on last week's close,
vocally most of the good light and handy
hnta .old around $14.30 14.16, with a de-
ent kind at $14.11 and aome weighty ones
"under the hill." A little package of Mex-
' loaus sold early at $14.60, but up to noon no
full loads had sold there, though the price
was reported as bid on eholoe Mexicans
Which were being held for more money.
Odd bunches of feeders were here, bat
' Anything In the feeding lamb line on which
eemparlsons could be based was lacking. A
hunch of feeding ewes brought $9.00.

General Advance in Prices
Stimulates Market, Though
Receipts Are Light.
Omaha, February 5, 1917.
Receipts of grain were comparatively light
today and a good demand for the dlnrent
cereals forced a general advance in prices.
Wheat wu strong at an advance of 2c to
3fcc. Corn followed wheat with praln of
3c to 2c, while oats were quoted from lc
to lfco higher. No. hard wheat brought
the bent prices, this grade selling from 11.72
to $1.73. and the No. 3 hard coins at
11.71 to 11.71V

2 mixed brought. $1.73, and the nominal
quotations on spring wheat were 11.6 to
11.76 on the No. 2 and I1.S& to $1.72 on
the No. 3 grade.
The trade In com vai excellent and buy
ers took up most of the nam plea on the ad
vance, the bettr gradi-s of com selling
around &Hc and tho mixed and yellow
aamplee going at 94 to ibc.
Oats were very anlvo and were In good
demand at the prevailing prices. Receipts
of oats, however, were very light, and the
bulk of the offerings, which graded No. 2
and No. 4 white, sold from 12 fcc to 62c
on No. 3 white to Clc to 634c on No. i

the owners but, on the contrary, would be
rushed. The market closed strong, 1 to
c net higher, with May at $1.74 to $1.74 H
and July at $1.49 to $1.4H- Other leading

oats 14 01c to Iftc, and provisions 27030c
to $1.27.
At first the chief -characteristics of the
wheat trade were nervousness and lack of
volume. Recent fluctuations apparently had
been tuo violent for all but the hardiest of
speculators with ample financial backing.
Buying orders predominated in Initial busi
ness, but were soon checked by reports that
Austria had taken the same position as
tlermany regarding unrestricted activity of
BUbmarines. Pronounced weakness followed,
owing to prospects that an Immediate break
In diplomatic relations with Austria was
likely. When traders, who had sold short,
attempted, however, to collect profits the
-narket was found to be bare of offerings.
H was at this juncture the visible supply
ligures were Issued showing that the aggre
gate readily available stock In this country
had shrunk to nearly 18.600,000 bushels less
than was the case a year ago.
Word of continued rapid forwarding of
supplies to the entente allies seemed to
glvo decided Impetus to the upward ten
dency of the wheat market as the end of
the session approached. The rise, though,
was largely confined to May and was
ihared to but a moderate extent by the new
crop months, July and September. May
closed at the topmost point reached, about
20 cents up from the lowest figures of Sat
urday. Com was etrong from the start. Scanti
ness of rural offerings Intimidated sellers,
who were a I no affected by talk that the
prevailing low temperatures had Increased
the feeding demand. Oats were Influenced
by the same conditions as corn, but were
less active.
New high record quotations on hogs car
ried provisions sharply upgrade. Pork led
the advance, and at one time showed a

Break in Relations With Ger

ther Advance in Shares.
New Tork, Feb. 6. Far from causing
dismay or even hesitation, the break in
relations between the United States and
Germany was made the occasion of a fur
ther advance in stocks today, last Satur
day's spectacular up rush being supple

many fssus of importance.
Prominent specialties, particularly those
embracing the so-calId war group, made
even greater gains Bethlehem Steel (old

stock yleled 4 points. Shares of numerous
other concerns, which have been the most
conspicuous In the war booms of the last
two years were substantially better, a few
gaining at their best as much as 6 to 10
points. United States Steel occupied Its cus
tomary commanding position throughout the
day and on a total turnover of about 360,000
shares, or almost 80 per cent of tho whole,
made an extreme advancs of 1 OS hi , and

Soml-war descriptions like Central Leather,
industrial Alcohol, Petroleums and Sugars

peared to ignore the rise In maritime In
surance rates to the highest figure thus
