Bbep There was a very fair run of shaep
and lambs here for Friday, arrivals counting
out twenty-nine loads, or about 7,000 head.
Five days' receipts foot up 40.673 bead, aa
compared wtth 61.314 last week. 81.&44 two
- wvtka ago and 41,878 a year ago. This
week's ran la the heaviest that has bees,
here sine toar weeks ago.
Sellers put la most of the forenoon try
ing to get higher prices for lambs, but
packers, who started out bidding easier,
! eventually bought the bulk of the lambs at
' figures that were about the same as those-
paid at ua good time on yesterday s cios.
Most of the decent to good fed western
lamba sold around 214,00, none being re
ported above that figure, while several cars
of Mexicans equaled yesterday's late top
. of 814.2ft. and others reached 114.1ft. While
' not much of anything was sold until late
In tha forenoon, almost everything bad
chanted hands by midday.
utrenngs or oio sneep were not targe
enough to make a market, but on the few
here prices looked steady to If anything a
littla better. One car of ewea, mates of
t the ones that brought llft.lft earlier In the
week, stopped at 218.80, while good Ught
fed weatarus brought the day's tup . of
1 8. 76.
No feeders of nonsequenea were reported
' today. Tester day a pretty desirable sort
of foadtng lambs was bought at 81S.8&.
Compared wtth a week ago feeders look
quite a little lower. Fat lambs are selling
easily a quarter to probably Sfta under a
week ago. Aged sheep, which were easier
at midweek, are not far from ateady with
a weak ago, though they showed strength
i early la the week and are aot selling as
well as at tha high time Tuesday,
