Hoc Thar waa juat a normal Mon
day aupply of hoars here, thoufh arrUala
of 101 care at about 7,900 head war nearly
four tlmea a Ursa ai t weak a to. Offer
ings vera nearly 1,000 ameller than' two
weeks ato, and a few hundred short of
ine rem pond ins Monday laat year.
Receipts at Chteaca overran estimates.
and lower prices wera predicted there, but
under the Influence of rather moderate,
cuprites tne local trade wae mostly steady,
Shipper demand was neither as broad nor
aa ursent as at the close of laat -week,
and the boa; order buyers bought showed
an easier tendency, being no more than
teady t la qultr a few Instances 6c
lwr. . l ';.. '
Packers atao got some hogs that looked
weak to a nlckol lower, particularly on
early rounds, but theae sales were scatter
ing, and, when bulk of the offerings was
tvauhad It was at prleei that wera about
M;tidy with laat week's close. Movement
ws never very active, and as waa tha case
Saturday tha laat rounds M'ere dreggy, D
aJrable hoga wr praottcally all uleand
up. and .ackera were not making much
of an attempt to boy the few bunches of
common light and highly mixed hogs that
wtf sttll in first bands.
The general Quality was ndt nearly as
- good as It was Saturday, lack of the real
good heavy hogs which -wtrr fairly plenti
ful the closing days of Inst week, being
especially iiotloeable. On thie account oin
packer droves figured aa much as a drine
lower on paper, but quality considered the
teneral market was not chuna-pd to auy
quotable extent. A epread of I14.60014.I6
. caught tha bulk of the sates. There waa
ri'jtte a scattering below this, aad abovn
114.70 aals wore mighty svarue, though
the extreme top equaled tha record of
114.40 inad teat week. .

tatidey run, and following, the tone of
arir Ctrteago wlree packers made their
opening bid at lower prices. 'There was
- fatrly firm undertone to the market,
chough, and before they were able to buy
much of anything buyers had to raise
Ihetr offers to a good steady basis.
The general market, while unevon, waa a
hjy steady affair, flight at the opening a
'ew lembe sold that might have been ae
irr.'but before the close sales Were made
that wen?, if anything, stronger. Bulk of
th offerings moved upwards from 114.40,

cans, the latter price being given by paek-e-rt
for the first 41 me here. Th Uinli
that brought theae latter price were of
light and handy weight snd at rift I y good
being more desirable than anything kere lb
latter halt of last week.

on sale. A two-car bunch of Navajo ewe

"As one of the early subscribers, I can

Bishop John H. Vincent, founder Of

"The 'Handy Volume' Issue of The En

say, ' under one roof,' and the fact that
the Britannica is now brought out in this

is sura to be appreciated by a great many
people to whom the privilege of owning it
das hitherto been denied. "
These men all own the new Britannica and strongly advise yeu to own it. Thousands of other
