Hogs Kor the third time in three daya
that waa a, very liberal run of hogs on
hand today, supplies of 230 cars, or about
14,400 head, being, in fact, the largest of the
week to date and the heaviest that have
been here since ftis latter part of March.
For tha. first half of the week arrivals total
43,414 head, as agalnat 3I,II last week,
21.417 two weeks ago and 14,317 ft year ago.
For the third auccesslv time buyer
were In almost complete control of tha
hog market, and. In fact, tha decline en
forced waa tha greatest that ha been reg
istered since the drop started. Packera
started out bidding ft quarter lower oa
the beat hogs, but soma shipper buying at
16930o lower figure caused killers to raise
their offers and they too bought their first
hog 16920c off. Sales made this way were
ot pretty carefully selected stuff, though,
and when the decent strings started mov
ing It was at flat SOo decline. Bulk of the
better hogs sold thla way but tha market
kept getting a little easier right along aa
the day advanced, and toward tha later
end of the. morning flat quarter reductions
wereyioted even on some of the pretty de

Sheep Big receipts and
, weaker price at Chicago acted aa cheek
of the .lower- market this morning, but
packera, who at tha outset hinted that they
wanted lamba a quarter lower, were not
long in getting their offers up to ft steady
bet is. They mad the bulk of their pur
chase at good steady to strong figure,
and In apota advances of lo and even 10c
were noted. Movement started early and
nearly all the lam be being of tv desirable
ort. bulk f tha offerings changed hand
in good season, practically all, tha lambs
starting for the scales before It o'clock.
Most of the sale were made around $11.60,

at $16.10 were bringing a nickel mors than
waa paid for their mates yesterday. Pack
ers would not go above yesterday's top of
$16.46 for anyMng. The only clipped lamb
on sale, a heavy clasa, sold at $11.40.
Old sheep, of which five or sis ear ware
here, were steady. Light fed western awe
brought $13.1$ and yearling and wethers,
similar to, but not quits desirable, aa
those that brought $11,10 yesterday, sold
t $13.00. The fact la that It has been
so long Bines ft run of sheep of any slae
was her that quotations are mainly a
matter of guesswork. No lamb cold on

the killer market has moved ud conald-

with prospects for moderate supplies right

The above prices on No. 2 and No. I
hard wheat show an advance of 2c to Ic
over the previous record, price, while ssles
nt corn today at $1.51 were about 2c over
the highest prevloua sales.
White corn sold pretty readily at the pre
vailing prices, and while there was a good
Inqulrv for the different varieties of corn,
the srflers were not satisfied with the price
offered for yellow and mixed and a targe
part of these samples were carried over.
The com market generally was quoted from
lc to 2 higher, white corn bringing around
$1.61 for the better grades, while yellow

Chicago. April 1$. Upturns In wheat vat
uea today resulted from export Interests
buying nearly $,000,000 bushels May delivery
and also purchasing liberally of the July
option. Ob the advance. May showed at
one time a bulge of II cents over the low
est level of the season. The close waa un
settled at $..324V-.3m tor May and
$1.17 1.17 H for July, with the market aa

Assertions that foreign government Inter
ests controlled millions of bushels of Chi
cago contracts for grain acted ra a stimulus
to bullish sentiment regarding wheut en
tirely aalde from the big acquisitions for
Europe today. Besides, gossip was current
that all available offerings were being ab
sorbed for export account In other markets
as well aa Chicago, and that prices aa nign
as 6$ cents over Chi o July were obtain
able at the Gutf of Mexico. Domestic
millers were also said to have resumed ac
tive buying and to have made large aalea
One of tha chief Influences which at first
gave wheat prices a temporary setback waa
an enlarged estimate of the stock on hand
In Canada, It waa said tha aggregate waa
11 MOM 00 bushels as against recent com
pute tiona of 7S.000.000 bushels. Excellent
weather conditions both ln the United States
and Canada together with better crop ad
vices operate also for while aa a tran
sient handicap on th. bulls.
: Corn paralleled the action of wheat and
ascended very close to the highest figures
on the crop. Tho volume of trade, though
waa rather light. In oats brisk demand
from cash Louses and the seaboard made a
atrong market almost from the beginning.
Messages from the south told of heavy sub
stitution of oats for corn.
Provisions rallied when grain turned de
cisively upward. In the earlier dealing the
market was depressed by th weakness ot

Figured in 50 seconds
on the Comptometer
the rapid' fire way to extend invoicQS
Do you still extend your bills the three
times 8 are 24 and 2 to carry" way?
, That used to be the best way. It isn't now.
. As compared to the Comptometer way it is an
extravagant waste of human energy besides,
it's too expensive.
A short demonstration of the Compto
meter on your billing would show you why.
You could set at a glance how an average
operator is able to make over 350 extensions
per hour with frequent fractions In both quan
tity and price. On easier work, as many as
700 per hour are being handled on one Comp
tometer every day.
It's the quick, one-motion, direct key action
that gives the Comptometer this rapid-fire
' speed not only on extending invoices, but on
every form of figure work, every arithmetical
calculation Involving addition, multiplication,
division and subtraction.
The Controlled-key allows no slighted key
stroke to pass unnoticed. With it on guard, '
even a novice cannot operate the Comptometer
You don't have to buy a Comptometer to find out how it fit your requirements.
Say the word and we will test it out to your satisfaction on your own work no
obligation, no expense just the opportunity to show you.

Could Use the
Would Other Types Remain?
In the present conflict of types-r-irours, Sixes
and V-Types it is well to consider what would
happen if the Super-Six -were free. Our patents
confine it to the Hudson. ,
As it is now, numerous fine-car makers advocate
other types. And tell you reans for it.
Some still cling to Fours. Some urge Eights and
Twelves. But thesweight of opinion favors the
small-bore Six. , ,
What would come of this conflict think you
were the Super-Six not patented. . , , ,
" , These Are the Fact
The Super-ix last year won all the worth-while
records. In a hundred hard-fought contests,
against all types, it proved itself supreme. .
As for the Light Six, in our final perfection,
the Super-Six invention increased its efficiency by
S0 per cent.
As for Eights and Twelves, our experience with
motors of that type which wesbuilt made them
seem to us, unnecessary, v , . ; ; . V! '
And the Super-Six has made the Hudson the
largest-selling front-rank car. Last year it out-sold
any car with a price above $1100.
The Vital. Supremacy
, One may say, "I don't care for speed, or great
reserve power, or a marvelous hilUclimber." '
Then why added cylinders, or extra valves, or
anything else to that end? ' . 1
You do want superlative capacity, , whether
you use it or not. You certainly want it when it
means no added size or' cost. When it', means
simply ended friction. -v. . (. . . .
That's the-great point; the Super-Six motor
is small and light and simple; We haye not aimed
at excessive speed or power. We' have simply
, minimized friction.
We have done bu.t dope better what every
engineer has been aiming at for years. And for
the same result more speed ai;d power, without
added complications. Also multiplied endurance.
Endurance was the chief aim. It is friction
that causes wear. We have so reduced it that we
attain what is proved the greatest motor in the
world. And certainly you want it.
What One Year Did
Mark how the Super-Six, in one year, sprang
.to the pinnacle place. There are. now 30,000
running. This year brings nothing to rival ft.
So it is bound to gain multiplied prestige.
This year's bodies also give to Hudson leader
ship1 in style. The ablest artists and craftsmen
gave their best to these models. Each is a study
in motor car luxury. Each is pattern type..
This year we add a great gasoline saver shut
ters on the radiator whieh by controlling the
heat of the motor in part overcomes the disad
vantage of the constantly falling quality of gaso
line. We add a pneumatic engine primer. We add
plaited upholstery. ' '
Our patented carburetor on Hudsons alone
is self-adjusting to every engine speed. -
So Hudson supremacy does not lie in the Super
Six motor only.
. When you buy a fine car a car to keep you
are bound to want the Hudson. You want the car
which outperforms and outshines other cars. If
you want such a car this spring, we urge a prompt
decision. Last year many buyers waited months
