Cattlfr There were no cattle of any im
portance on sale today. For the week re
ceipts amuunt to 23,911 head, being the
amalleau since Christmas week and smaller
limn a year airo by-. 1 most 2. 0UO head. The
market advanced sharply during the early
part of the week, being quoted generally
26c higher on all kinds of killers on Wed
nesday. Ktnre that day the market has
eased oft. closing with most of the advance
lost. This would apply to cows and helfurs
as 'well ss beef steers. Strictly good stock
cattle and feeders have been strong all the
week, while the leas desirable kinds have
been slow and weak.

supply is the Unit tost sines the first week
of January, totaling 87.0J6 head, which Is
17,000 smaller than a week ago. 36,000 short
of two weeks ago, only a little over half as
large as the record breaking run three weei
ago, and 2,000 short of the corresponding
week of last yt'ar.
Prices reached new high levels today on
another sharp aivanre. Koon shipping da

' Their first purchases were no more than 10
i&ci higher, but after nickers got In order
buyers paid as much aa 20o or more up.
Killers Mho net-dud hogs, and, as the run
- wan light to begin, with, and shippers were
taking everything they could use, It did
not t:.ke packers very long to follow the ad-
vanc-e. ' In fact, once thy got started they
led i he procession, making most of their
purchases on l&tM&o higher basis. An
the market was very active, It was the work
of only few minutes to clean up the small
offerings, and by shortly after o'clock
practically everything had sold. Closing

Sheeti while supplies have not' been
heavy at any time this week, and the laal
three days' runs were very light, lamhs are
selling 3640o lower than week ago.
Most trsders think that had supplies twin
any heavier there would have boon a much
greater decline. Packers simply did not
want to take on any mors than was neces
sary, for while the local car shortage hHs
been relieved to a great extent, eastern
markets are congested, coolers being over
loaded and demand for all kinds of dressed
mutton slack. Monday most of the offer
ings sold loo lower, while Tuesday 19&Z&C
declines were noted. Wednesday, with a
very light run, prices he'id about steady
with the low close of the previous day. and
Thursday, while receipts continued moder
ate, prices were steady to a dime lower.
Yesterday not enough was here to make a
market, values being quoted nominally
steady, a prices elsewhere were unchanged,
Marketa were slow from beginning to end,
and It Was one of the mos; unsatisfactory
weeks seen for a long time. Thursday Mci
Icans sold at 114.004014.30, the latter price
buying s good kind, while buljt of tne de
sirable westerns 'Sold around $13,864
14-00, and wlghty and unfinished kinds
moved on down, heavy lambs selling as low
as $12.26. Almost no shorn lambs were

Actlva Buying by Houses With Seaboard
Connections Sends Wheat Up.
Chicago, March 7. Estimates that only
89,000 bushels of wheat remained for ex
port from the United States during the next
four months had a decided bullish Influence
today on prices. Largely In consequence
the market at the close, although unset

Bullish sentiment developed rapidly In the
wheat trade after the probable smallness
of 'the exportable surplus had been an
nounced. The estimate, was from a leading
expert' here and was accompanied by a
surmise on his part that the government
computation of the 1916 yield Jiad been
a.ouu.ouu ousneis too mgn. Asiae from tne
figures on the exportable surplus, however.

Increased, Improvement In railway traffif
facilities to Oulf, of Mexico porta counted
also to aome extent In favor of higher
snow rails in tne souinwest retarded more
or less the advance of new-crop deliveries
of wheat. Besides, on account of the week
end profit taking, there was a moderate
reaction all around from top prices as the
day approached finish. Nevertheless the
buying power in the market seemed to show
no curtailment and there were but few
traders sufficiently venturesome to put out
new short lines.
Corn established a new high price record.
The reasons were that the bog market attll
was soaring, and that the latest reckon
ings put i the domestic farm reserves of
corn at the lowest aggregate since 1892.
Oats responded in lively fashion to the
strength of other grain. Trade was much
larger than recently has been the case, and
it was said rural offerings also had increased.
Urgent export demand for lard was a
factor In hoisting the entire provision
market to unprecedented levels. Other
causes were the ccontlnuance of the hog
shortage and of the remarkable accompany
ing advance ot tne value of corn,.

' We called the Super-Six, when it first came
out, a 76-horse power motor. That was 80 per
cent more efficiency than was obtained from
the same size theretofore.
Since then we have seen it develop vastly
more power thari that. t
. ' We watched it break all the speed records
for stock cars. Then it broke its own records
by still bigger margins. '
In a hundred cities, Super-Sixes broke
the records on local hills. Then one, day, in
competition with twenty of the worlds fa
mous mountain racing cars, all specially built,
a Super-Six special broke the record up Pike's
Peak, and became the world's. master hill-

A stock Super-Six chassis broke the 24-hour

For 14 months, in the severest tests known,

The Super-Six, which is a Hudson invention,
brings up a new condition. v
Friction has heretofore been a motor's great
est foe. Here it is almost nil. i
, The result, we know, is such performance,
such endurance as never was known before.
But we have no idea of the limits.
Be Glad It h a Six
Men should be glad that tlys great motor is
a light arid simple Six. That was always, save
for vibration, the ideal motor type! And now
in smoothness the Super-Six excels "all other
types. ' ' - '
All these supremacies are attained without
adding, size or cylinders. We still have the
Six simplicity. ! And this year, by a gasoline
saver, we greatly increase its economy.
In the past year we have brought Hudson
bodies tip to the Super-Six standard. Now
every Hudson Super-Six looks the ruler - that
it is. ' . r '
We built 25,000 last year, yet thousands were
unable to get delivery and were disappointed.
We shall build 30,000 this year. .Just think
how much better the Super-Six is known, and
therefore how much greater will be the de
mand. A fine-car buyer who is well-informed
can have no other choice.
. You will save delay and perhaps disap
pointmentif you see your Hudson dealer now. .

. Saum's Preservative was invent
ed by a Gferman Chemist after
years of experimenting and testing
to prove its worth. '
Architects and Contractors
throughout the East and the best
local architects have recognized its
merit and demanded that it be add
to specifications of building. ' It ''
stops rot and splintering of wood
does away with all dusting and
makes CONCRETE F L 0 ORS
water, acid, grease and oilproof.
The penetrating oils used in it
are not even inflammable, and the
gummy substance which develops
as it seeps through the fibers of
the wood gradually oxidizesNand .
the metamorphosis shows an ada
manting hardening where the pre-
'. 3ervative comes in contact with the
oxygen of the air and yet remains
in a liquid state in the interior of
the treated ; surface indefinitely.
There is no evaporation at all. ,
This is the reason that a Saum's-
treated floor needs no other treat
ment during the life of the build- :
- ing. There is always a fresh supply,
of the material just below the sur
face ready fo become oxidized if,
for any reason, the top or wearing'
surface. is removfid by traffic or
abrasion. - '
That Saum's does not disappear
by evaporation even when entirely
exposed to the air is proved by the
- fact that if a small quantity of the
, oil is placed on a sheet of glass and
: allowed to oxidize, it will be found
to weigh'a little more after oxidiza
tion than when first placed on the
, glass. " V '
A wonderful floor preservative that will pay any
builder big returns in the durability of his floors.
