Cattle As was generally expected Mon
day a receipts were comparatively msni,
about 5,000 head, but this fact apparently
had. little influence on the market; both
lootil, dresiwd beef and shipping buyers

Sheep Although today's run of sheep
and lambs was limited to 6,600 head pack
ers all acted very bearish and Insisted
upon a further reduction In prices. After
rather slow ntart the trade in rat
lambs developed on a 2560c lower basis
with fat sheep showing declines of about
26c. Good fat lambs dropped to $9.25
with heavies at $7.75(gi8.00 and less.
Fretty good fat ewes moved at $4.264.50,
indicating an outside price of about $4.75.
Not many feeders were shown, but the
tendency ito values was also lower In this
branch of the trade.

t hlraga Tribune-Omalia Bee Iaied Wire.
New York, Jan. 31. The, market
which was naturally watched to
day with the greater curiosity and
interest was foreign exchange. Be
cause that market, which would
naturally be affected by financial
judgment on the new plan of Ger
man reparations, had no full op
portunity until today of passing on
the practical merits of the Paris pro
posal. Sterling, francs and most of
the other European exchange rates
declined. But the foreign exchange
market was by no means the day's
only point of financial interest.
Silver bullion made another down
ward plunge, selling on today's
London market for 55l,& pence per
ounce, as against 36- at last week's
closing and 42J- in the first week
of January. Today's price was the
lowest since November of 1916. So
persistent a downward movement
would appear to indicate emphasized
reaction of call mcney on the Stock
Exchange was a matter df almost
equal interest. The rate went to 8
per cent today for the first time since
Money Kate Lower.
Of Itself, the difference between that
rate and the lately prevalent 7 per cent
ia not Important. It Impressed the stock
market today chiefly because of the-, re
cent expectation of a much lower rate
by the end of January, and because no
bull movement in stocks", has occurred
to explain It. Perhaps the only exulana-
tlon. outside of last week's $33,000,000
''Itlinrawal of governmcn deposit from
th banks, is provided In the remark of
ine ;eiv York Federal Reserve bank in
itn eml iif-January bulletin, that part of
the bunk loans closed out In the interior
this month 'have been transferred to
New York," and that "many of the New
Tork city banks report that loans to
their out of town bank correspondents
have recently reached the hlgfcest figures
ineir experience." yet on tile other
hand, by way of illustrating the. singular
uncertainty of the money market the rate
for time loans on Stock Exchange col
lateral was reduced again, thereby can
celling all of the rise which occurred in
the middle of last week, while today's
London market lowered the rate on call
and slightly advanced the discount rate.
The day's movement of foreign exchange
caused much' discussion. Sterling and
continental rates had declined on the Eu
ropean market before business opened to
day In Wall Street; the decline continued
here, and closing quotations, which, were
generally the lowest, left sterling down
2 rents for the day and franca lie; the
French rate ending, however, consider
ably above last Friday's final level. Rates
on other continental markets, except for
Scandinavia, also- went lower today. In
general, therefore. It may be said that
the market most concerned in the repara
tions settlement expressed unfavorable
Judgment on the Paris plan. Probably
even the exchange market needs more
time to test Its attrtde on the new pro
posal: it must not be overlooked that
extensive speculation dor the rise has been
In progress, presumably not based on ex
pectation of exactly the solution which
tl-.s premiers have arrif'd at.
Opinion Not Shown.
It is impossible ,to say how far even a
continued adverse verdict of the market
would mean financial disapproval of the
plan in Itself, and how far It would
mean only the market s doubt as to
whether Germany could be' Induced to
accept it. The German market which
sold at 1.87c on Monday of last week,
fell today from 1.79c to 1.55c, and ex
change on pretty much' all Other central
European markets declined with It. The
plan of collecting the Indemnity from
an export tax undoubtedly opens up a
many-sided problem. Even W all Street
could not agree today as to how it would
work out practically or regarding Its larg
er ecnomic impllaationn, and experienced
financiers, both here and in London, seem
to be hesitant in glvljig opinion.
rrom me aay s narrow stock market
no opinion could possibly be extracted. Its
movement was Irregular and confused and
its attention apparently fixed altogether
or. the dividend possibilities of Industrial
companies or the price of oil. When the
can money raie aavancea in me closing
hour, however, general reaction of prices

Grain receipts today totalled 160
cars, against 301 cars last Monday,
Most of the early trading was in
corn, which ranged lie up to JjC
off, generally unchanged. Good
wheat was about l2c lower, with
trading slow. Oats declined J4c Rye
was normally weak and lower and
barley lc oif. The United States
visible supply of wheat decreased
1,066,000 'bushels the last week, torn
increased 4,S0,000 bushels and oats
increasfd 755,000 bushels.
Kansas City report states a mod
erate improvement in the flour de
mand, with mills moderate buyers of
wheat over Sunday. A big south
west milling concern, however, re
ports tliat while they can sell all the
low grade flour they can make, de
mand for patents is much below nor
mal. Export clearances of wheat
and flour today were unusually large,
tolling 3,447,000 bushels, being more
thn half .the total of all last week.
There was no evidence of export
demand for wheat today and the sit
uation Saturday was the same.

Chicago TrllMine-Onmha Bee Leased Wire.
Chicago, Jan. 31. The grain mar
kets were without substantial buying
power alter an early bulge, due to
a covering among the short sellers.
After it was satisfied, prices started
down and continued without inter-,
ruption until the finish, which was
the lowest on the present down-turn
and the lowest ot the session for
Mav wheat, closing trades were at
the bottom with wheat otf 2 l-2c to
2 3-4c, corn 7-8c, oats l-2c, rye 4c
to 4 l-2c, and barley 2 l-4c.
An absence of export demand com
bined with a break of 6 l-2c in Ar
gentine prices at the opening with a
small strike there on the railroads
created an uncertain feeling. Labor
trouble also prevailed in India, yet
the latter country shipped 864,000
bushels last week and Australia ship
ped 2,152,000 bushels, making 6,600,
000 bushels so far this month.
British Depress Prlc'V.
The BrltlBh government is using every
measure to depress prices, and reduce
prices for American wheat 6s and Argen
tine ids and flour 5s. This created a de
pressed feeling here. But at t'ae same time
there was a rally of 2U to 4c from the
early low with ,a covering movement on.
This was lost iater as selling Increased,
while the buying wa.- poor end a de
cline of 4 to 5'fc followed with the close
tit $1.18 for May. tlio latter being the
lowest of the season so far. Receipts, 37
Corn is piling tip fast: The visible sup.
ply increased 4.609.000 bushels last week.
The total is 14,297,000 bushels against
3,075.000 bushels last year. Liquidation and
hedging sales wero effective after an ad
vance of Uc over Saturday's close, while
the inside prjee was down to 64Vic, where
it closed. Arrivals of 609 cars were more
than ample for requirement. Cash prices
advanced lc early, but later lost It. Ship
ping soles were 89.0D0 bushels.
Oats made new lows with May down
to 4H4C. Hedging pressure and the break
In corn had a depressing effect. Stocks
are increasing with a gain of 755,000
bushels, making it 32,632,000 bushels or
about three times last year's. Cash prices
advanced "Ac. but closed easy. Shipping
sales 50,000 buxhftls.
Rye ,'as hnNJ to sell at the last and
broke sharply Cash demand was in' evi
dence with light offerings restricting busi
ness. The visible decreased 377,000 bush
els. Pit Notes.
Grain prices are so low that farmers
have to sell three to five bushels of corn
to get as much as one bushel' brought a
year ago,.vhlle It takes a bushel of oats
to buy ST package of clgarets in western
Nebraska. The weak buying power stands
out above all other conditions. It is a
case where conditions, not prices, are the
governing factors. For the present tne
Impression prevails that, economic con
ditions are against the prices.
.o export depiaml was. reported for
cash wheat or corn and premiums on
wheat at the gulf are working low. Sell
ers axked" 20c over March f. o. b. for
Februat'3'. 19c over fo. March and 18c for
April loading without takers. There was
noma inquiry for No. 2 l.ard here from
esatern mills, about l$2u out of line.
Domestic shipping sales of cash grain
at Chicago were 25,000 bushels "wheat,
90.000 bushels corn and 50.000 bushels oats.
Low grade spring wheat w:is easier as
compared with the JUarcn at Chicago,
but otUer grades showed little change. No.
1 red was quoted at 2oG3.toc over; AO,
I hsrd at SS9c. and No. 1 northern at
8illo over March. St. Louis declined
14c 2c. OnUba 3c. and Kansas City un
changed to 3c lower.

About the middle of the
eighteenth century, Henry
Fielding said, "A penny saved
is a penny got."
If the penny of which he
was thinking had been in
vested at 6, with interest
compounded semi-annually, it
would have grown to more
, than $100.00 by this time.
A penny invested gathers
unto itself many another
What applies to the penny
applies a hundred times as
much to the dollar.
Saving is addition; invest
