Cattle Receipts of cattle were not quite
as large as on Monday, counting 01ft 7,300
head, but tho total for the two days is
slightly larger than a week ago. Quality
was very common as a general thing, and
this made It very hard to make compnri
sons even whero the stuff sold. On (be
few desirable steers that were here values
looked about steady. Butcher stock was
draggy and a few salea which were lane
early were weak to nnrisc lower than yes
terday. It took a real good kind of corn
fed cows to bring $8.40. There was quite
a bit of inquiry for desirable stockers and
feeders, but early bids were as a rule
lower, and not much of anything had
changed hands up to this writing. The
common cattle of all kinds are having
hard time finding an outlet, and quite a
hit of stuff was carried over from jester

Hogs There was a moderate run of hogs
here this morning and trade opened with
shippers buying at a 1015c decline. There
was little doing on the packer division on
the early rounds, They were trying to get
their hogs at a further decline, and started
out bidding 26c lower, finally buying a few
hogs that looked anyway 20o lower. The
best price paid was $16.05, with tho bulk
of the hogs moving at $16.8015.95. Trade
was rather slow and draggy all the way
through, with a weak undertone. There
was little doing In stock pigs this morning.

Sheep Another liberal run of sheep and
lambs was here this morning. Trado
opened fairly active and a good clearance
whs made on most of the choice light kill
ers. Good light lambs were about steady
with yesterday, top being $16.60. In-betweens
were easier. Fat ewes wero In fair
demand at fully steady prlcea, best ewes
selling up to $11.00. Feeder trade was
active at a little easier prices than yester
day's close. Good handy weight lambs
brought up to $16.00, othera going at $14.50
15.76. Wethera were lower.

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS
Corn Develop Strength and Closes Finn.
Out Gain Half to One Cent.
Chicago, Doc. 18. Corn prices developed
strength today owing more or less to an
expected falling off in country advice of
shipments. Corn closed firm, wdlh January
at $1.21 nnd May $1. 19 tr 1 . 19 .
Oats gained half cent to one cent. The
outcome in provisions was a setback of 20c
At first the corn market hod a downward
slant a a result of continued mild weather
that seemed to promise increasing receipts.
The fact, however, that as yet no decided
enlargement of the number of arrivals had
taken place tended to cautious selling, not
withstanding that a government order
which stops the manufacture of industrial
alcohol from any kind of corn except sample
grade was generally construed as a bearish
factor. Later, the scarcity of rural notices
of consignment led to a good deal of com
ment, and during the lsst hour there was a
somewhat vigorous upturn In values, the
consequence partly of announcement of a
sharp decrease of North American available
supplies of oats.
Sign nf export business at the seaboard
helped tho oats market to rally from early
depressions. Heavy deliveries on contracts
li. re and local salej to go to store were the
main sources of the temporary weakness.
over-abundant supplies of hogs broke the

SHEEP SHORTAGE IS
FOUND WORLD WIDE
State Council of Defense Ap
points Committee to
Look Into Local
OwiiiR to the existence of the very
alarming shortage in sheep, wool and
beef products, and fully aware of the
fact that these products arc abso
lutely necessary to the successful
prosecution of the present war, the
State Council for Defense appointed
a committee who are well acquainted
with sheep and beef husbandry to
look carefully into this matter, with
the hope of finding a speedy remedy.
Trot. H. Ii. Tier of the animal hus
bandry department, State I'niversity
farm. Lincoln, was appointed chair
man liv the State Council for Defense.
Anv communications in regard to
sheep, wool and calves, intended for
I he State Council for Defense should
be addressed to H. 15. Pier.
It is alarming but true that there
is not only a great shortage of sheep
and wool in the United States, but
this shortage is world-wide. The se
riousness of these facts will be
brought home when we learn that
the great Hocks of the Balkan states
are now practically annihilated. Jn
Germany there has been a reduction
to less than 3,000,(XH head. Before
the war, England's textile trade with
Germany was $(, HHl.OOO annually,
Germany selling England each year
$JJ,HW,(H)0 worth of yarns, rags and
cloth. During the war Germany ha
been able to secure wool confiscated
from Trench and Belgian territory
only. Sheep stock has decreased 25
per cent in three years in France,
England's clip has fallen from 130,
000,000 pounds before the war to 103,
OOO.OiX) today. Sheep have been
slaughtered by the millions in Tur
kev, which previous to the war ha4
50,000,000 sheep and goats. Even th
neutral countries have suffered, al
serious inroads have been made upon
the sheep stock of Sweden, Den
mark, Holland and Norway. Thoj
(locks, however, of Russia have 8uf
fcrcd but little, Russia being th
greatest sheep country in the world
today, with Australia and the Argen
tine struggling for second place.
High School Teacher
Invents New Arm Splint
E. II. Orchard, head of the me
chanical drawing department at Cen
tral High school, has improved upon
a model of an arm splint submitted by
the Red Cross society as a pattern
for manual training department boys
of the public schools, i
This pattern, approved by the Red 1
Cross and used by the Canadian gov
ernment as a standard, is intended
for only one arm, separate splints be
ing necessary for left and right arms.
By making a simple change Mr.
Orcliajd devised a pattern of a splint
which may be used for either arm.
Manual training boys of the public
schools are making a complete unit
of more than 300 splints for the Red
