Hogs The week closes with tha smallest
run of hogs that has been bera since a
week ago Monday, arrivals today counting
O'Jt 146 cars, or eomewbere In the neighbor
hood of 10,000 head. The six days' total of
01.84f head Is 20,004) short of the record
breaker laat week, but Is more than 80.000
heavier than two weeks ago, and shows a
gain of over 8,000 as compared with the
corresponding week last year.
laarly wires from most points were of a
bullish nature, and with local supplies com
paratively moderate and shipping compe
tition fsirly keen, killer bogs started sell-,
tng In good seeaon at figures that looked
generally 6o higher than yesterday. Some
sellers refused to call pricea more than
steady to etrong In spots, and it may be
that packers bought some of the lights at
.out the same prices aa ehlppers paid yea
Mrday for similar kinds, but compared with
yesterday's killer trade, bulk of the sales
.ho wed a full nickel upturn.
On tho extreme Moss the early advance
was all tost. On of the packers failed to
buy many hogs and other buyers ytok, ad
vantage of this to cheapen up their own
droves, most of the hogs that came on the
last train as welt as odd loasla of just fair
stuff left from esrly soiling at prices that
vM no more than steady with yesterday,
and In some cases looked. If anything, a lit
tie easier. Most sellers fought the reductions
for a while, as other points reported no
. weakness lata, but In the end everything
was cleaned up, salesmen preferring to make
concesalotis to carrying hogs over until
Bulk of th-i offerings moved at f 11.009

SheepThe run of sheep and lambs bad
heen by quite ft margin the largest In sev
eral weeks, so white rioting lamb prices
are not much more than steady with a week
ago. the trade could in no wise be consid
ered unsatisfactory. There was a steady
sdvancs the first half of the week, bulk
of the good handy weight fed westerns
selling Wednesday at fi4.36tfl4.16, which
' was around 36c above last week's close,
- while best Mexicans reached ft4.70, the high
day. Thursday's combination of adverse
i-lrcutnatancee amounted to almost a third
of the week's total, and even this might
not have broken the market so badly hsd
packers been able to get refrlgerstor cars.
"Itul as It was, with their coolers filled with
dressed mutton and no cars In sight, values
" broke sharply. A few lambs sold on the
open Inn g 10c lower, but later business was
inoaUy at pricea that wer 16c to on th
tiose a quarter lower, and even then the
supply was not cleared. Friday there waa
an additional 16c decline, leaving the mar
ket 16 9 40c under the htgh time, or Just
about where It was a week ago, Beat lambs
, might be a little better than laat Friday,
but on the other hand weighty kinds, which
broks worst, are hardly aa good as a week
ago. Friday most of the medium weight
weaterps sold around 114.00, with some on
the extreme close at 114.20, and light Mexi
cans at 114.36914.16. Heavy lambs were
sll selling "under tha bill," ranging down

Omaha Futures.
The wheat market closed higher today,
mainly as the result of profit taking by
shorts, the sentiment generally being in
clined to the bear side. Shipping facilities
are somewhat ImproVecf and traders sre
inclined to look for lower prices with any
loosening up of the oar situation.
The Argentine corn situation also shows
considerable Improvement, although thi
northern reports from tha country are still
Oats were quiet with lower closing prices
on the May article and unchanged on July.
