Cattle The late arrival of several trains
was all that kept the yards from being
pretty well cleaned of cattle on flint rounds,
Judging by- the way buyers went after the
stuff. Packers bought both beeves and
butcher stock about as fast as they came In
at good, steady to strong prices. Early ar
rivals included no real good steers. Beeves
are closing 2560c higher than a week ago,
with medium kinds moving around $10.00
11.60, and best shortfeds at $13.00 12.75,
Moat of the advance has been on the
medium and low priced grades. The sup
ply of stockers and feeders has been fight,
while the demand was fairly good and the
trade has been active and strong ewr?
day, closing as much at 25c hlghor than
a week ago. Western beeves have beelt too
scarce to really make a market.

Hogs Receipts of hogs were liberal for
a Friday and trade for the most part was
rather slow. Shippers were buying a limited
supply this morning at prices that looked
anyway 10015c lower, while packers were
buying on practically the same basis. The
best prices paid was $16.76, or lOo under
yesterday's top, while the bulk of th hogs
moved at $16.4516.60. On account of cold
weather there were aeveral trains late, with
a probability of late hogs coming In. Trade
on the whole was rather slow.

Sheep Another light run of sheep and
lambs was on the morning's niRrket, quite
a number of the short supply being back
at 10 o'clock. Trade In killers was active.
Fat lambs ruled stroni, fully recovering
yesterday's 1016o decline. Lambs around
81 pounds brought $16.26 16.85. The un
dertone was stronger, with higher prices in
view. There were only a few sheep on the
opening market, and what sold looked strong
at yesterday's average. A few head so'l
well up to the high time of the season. Fat
yearlings brought $13.10, steady with yes
terday. There were no feeders on the open
ing market, but undertone was strong.

notice that the director had prohibited
further tm-lInK In the December option,

protracted unfavorable weather and the
hknlihood that the crop movement would
be kept down to small proportions.

The Townsend-Commerce high

evening's program. This battle was
desperately fought from start to fin

slight. The superior teamwork of
the Townsends, however, finally
broke down the bookkeepers' defense

The Nakens had everything their own
way in the second period.
The Central Furnitures forfeited
to the M. E. Smiths because several
of their players went out of town
and they could not assemble a five

What haa been in muny respects the

of governmental control of the country's
transportation systems, caui.ng a striking
recovery In prices of securities, but with
recognition that not all of the readjustment
arising from war conditions have yet been

obscure and likely to remain uncertain,
there Is no abatement of the deposition
to operate with caution, and the euMtoinary
policy of deferring Important engagements
until after the year-end now appears In
many quarters, but whet hns stood nut
prominently through recent months of un
precedented changes, has been the absence
of conipleiio'is Ines of confidence and of any
general movement, toward cancellation of
