Hoga A continuation
of Ihe reaction
which aat In en yealerday'a eloae waa re
ported all around the circuit thla morning.
Ideally packera made their early offer at
flguree that were fully m dime lower than
yeaterday'a average, but sellers rcfuaed to
take leaa than aleady prlcea until they had
a chance to try the market out. and aa only
few ahlpplng ordara were filled on early
rounds, not much waa dona until well along
tn the forenoon.
By 10 o'clock, however, aelllng Intereata
had given up hopeo of getting ateaily prlcea
' and aa packera ahowed a disposition to bet
ter their early offere, a little compromise
waa effected, first drovea aelllng on a nickel
lower baala. After the Ice had once been
broken movement became fairly active and
It did not take a great while to clean up
the big end of tne otferlnga.
At one time lowarda the cloae pankera
went hack to early 10c lower blda and for
s while It looked aa though traile might
oloae eaaler, but late meaaagea from other
polnta reported the early decline regained,
and when packera finally did clean up the
offerlnga they had to give the beat prlcea
of the day, aoma of the late aalea being
steady with yeaterday.
On paper, at leaat, tha general market waa
right cloae to a htrkel lower, but the
Quality waa hardly aa good as yeeterday,
and aoma of tha buyera claimed that, con
sidering thla. their purchaaea were not more
than a. ahade lower. Hulk of the offerings
sold at 113.10912.11, with Quite a ahowlng
of the heat heavloa up lo 111.10. The es
treme top of I12.lt equaled the reoord made

' ftheep The run of eheep and lamba was
liberal for a Thuraday. BUpplIra of forty
nine loads, or about 11,000 head, showing
Quito a. little Increase over yeaterday'a run.
For the week ao far offerlnga total 41,004
head, aa compared with 62,111 laat week,
01,171 two Weeka ago, and 26,113 for the
aame daya laet year.
The laaab trade today waa a many-sided
affair and aa a general thing none too aet
lafactory. One of the packers filled sn' or
der for some rholoa light lambs early at
prices that were atrong to as much aa
lOo higher than yesterday, but meet buy
ers talked eaaler prlcea on the opening and
In the- end were able to make their pur
chaaea at not over steady prices. In fact,
one packer who had talked llo decllnee on
flrat rounds wss still trying to get lamba
lower at a lata hour and had not up to
that time bought more than a oouple or
three loada, there being aoma ten or fif
teen care left In first handa at the time
of closing this report. Moot of the good
westerns of moderate weights found an
outlet at I14.3lf 14.1b. Some fairly strong
weight stuff sold at 114.11 and real weighty
kinds on down. A few gorel light westerns
reached 114.10, equaling the beat price ever
paid In their class, and four cars of cholcs
Uaalcana brought a new high price of 114.71.
Other Mealcena aold at 114.10014.16.
ajwes were not In large enough supply
to reslly make a, market. A couple of
loada that have a reputation for their high
drraatng ability aold at In. It, breaking the
record, and falrloh atufr was bought
The Montana lambs reported aa unaold on
yeaterday'a cloae went to a buyer of ahear-

which waa duplicated by another cut of the
name atuff today. As high aa 114.11 waa
paid for good fleehy shearing lamba today.

HOGS TAKE HIGH
Twelve-Sixty-Five Is Paid at
Omaha Yards for One Load
FIFTEEN DOLLARS SOON
His Highness, the Hog
. .. .IJJMI
Two months' rerelpta.,
Number of hga In
January 1, lull
Prospect for Belling price lo go
Fifteen cent hogs?
Quite likely, and very soon. Top
rice in (Jmaha yesterday was
nearer $15 per hundred for hogs than
the top two months ago was to the
present price. On December 15, 1916,
the highest price paid for hogs in
Omaha was $9.80; yesterday a load
from lioone county went over the
scales at $12.65, an advance of $2.83
in two months, while only $2.35 it
needed to set the mark at $15. At
Chicago yesterday the top was $12.95.
Mystery in the Advpnce.
What has started this climb in hogs,
and what supports it, is mystifying
the commission men. Everything that
comes in shape of a hog firds ready
sale., and the price is steadily going
higher. The sellers are giving them
selves no uneasiness, for they have
all the better of the situation. Nor do
the packers appear to be unduly exer
cised over the situation, for they are
taking everything that comes, and
t.avins for it. Prices seem to depend
on what the commission mai has the
nerve to ask for his consignments.
Shortage of Hoga Alleged.
Over at Chicago some ot the com
mission men allege a shortage of a
million head of hogs at the eleven
Dnncioat markets. This does not ap
ply to Omaha, for the receipts here
since the middle of December show
an increase of 111,387 over the same
.time a year previous. Figures issued
bv the eovernmcnt. giving the num
ber of swine on farms in the United
States showed a decrease of 313,000
for the vear. Iowa. Illinois and Ne
braska, the three great hog raising
states of the union, each showed an
increase, the total for Nebraska being
4,309,000, an increase of 1,700,000 in
Export of Pork Products,
Exoorts of nork products, except
bacon, do not show such increase as
to account for the uplift in prices
January figures are not yet at hand,
but the December report from the De
oartment of Commerce gives the ship
ments abroad of pork products in
pounds for the month as:

Provision Pricei Overtaken,
A vear ago the spread between the
price ot hoars and tne ngures tor pro
visions was consiucrauiv Krcaicr ui
proportion than it is today. While
the selling price of packing house
products has gone up, the advance has
not been as rapid as that made by the
live animals. Plenty of time tor that
however. Since December 15. 1916,
the selling price of hogs at Omaha has
advanced & oer cent: tne closing
price on the May option for mess pork
inaicatcs an increase lit tuc same tunc
of but 14.6 ner cent: for lard the ad
vance has been but 6.1 per cent, and
for Tibs it is but 13.22 per cent.
Conmared with hog prices, the sell
sr Drice for beeves seems to be stand
ing still. On December 15, 1915, the
top price paid for hogs in Omaha was
So.45: tor beet steers. v.ur. tor cows,

TONY SCAPELLATO WITH SEB
In a dingy rear room at 1215 Pierce
street, the already sizable family of
Tony Scapellato is rejoicing over the
arrival of three more babies.
Girl triples were born there Mon
day afternoon and a'l three are lusty
and active. The mother, Mrs. Rosa
Scapell; to, is also doir.g fine. She
has had four other girl babies, is 28
years of age and has been married
less than seven years. Tony is 31
and works at the Burlington freight
Birth control does not interest Mrs.
Scapellato, whe is very proud of her
black-eyed babies. Tony laid he was
strong and had a job, when mention
was made of the H. C. L. These sub
jects of modern discussion evidently
do not appeal to new Americans.
Unable to talk much linglish, lony
