feature of the early trading was the sale of a

weather still bail In the South, which led to
caution in making ventures on the short side

SOUTHERN CATTLE Receipts of quarantine
cattle were very liberal for Saturday. A total
of 43 cars were received, containing 1.04a head,
against 12 cars and 273 head last Saturday, and 21
cars embracing 617 head, two weeks ago. The
bulk of the arrivals were steers of medium to
good quality, the latter selling up to 14.50. There
was a slow- movement on the steers, especially
en the best kinds, as buyers were very Indiffer
ent not caring to hold any cattle over until
next week, except at lower values. Consequently
the market ruled a dime lower on the medium
class, while the good grades were least wanted
and were a quarter lower than ThuradMy. A load
of mixed cattle and a load of heifers, along with
three cars of decent calves, were included in the
surplr and were quoted steady toy Saturday.
The week's supply aggregated 438 cars, against
402 cars last week anr. 264 cars two weeks ago.
During the week Texas nnd Indian Territory
steers averaging 467 to 1.2S0 lbs. sold at a full
rango of 32,5085. most of them going at 33.75
4.50. Cows and heifers brought 3234.50. the bulk
at t2.OW2.S5: stags and oxen at t3.4034: bulls at
32,2583.55. and calves, at 15315 per head, and
fl.408B per cwt.
HOOS Even for Saturday the recelots of hogs
were very amall. there belnfsIess than 1.50")
head on sale. A good demand'prevalled from all
sources, the market opened rrctlve. and as a
rule sales were made at prices considered fully
Ce higher than the average Friday market. Lit
tle pigs and common lights did not show any
Improvement, except that they sold a little more
readily than during the past few days, city
batchers were unable to secure half as many
good hogs aa they needed, while all the pickers
also wanted more hogs than they were able to
get. The close was on a good, firm basis, with
Fair to best butcher and heavy hogs sold at

The top of the market was f7.fio and the hulk
of the hogs above IV) average sold at 17.1587.40.
against a top of 17.50. and the balk at 17.0587.3)
SHEEP There was no business done In the
sheep department, as there was no stock on
sale. The clearance Friday was complete, and
no fresh arrivals were reported this morning.
The week closes on a good firm basis for all
decent mutton sheep and lambs, but half-fat
and only fair grade stock are selling rather
slowv The market In general is on the highest
basis for msm- years, and no week so far this
year has the suonly been naif sufficient to meet
the demand, and frequently buyers are forced
to secure supplies from other points to fill urgent
orders. Compared with other markets, prices
here are on a very strong basis.

'HORSES The activity during this week has
heen longer maintained than during any week
for a long tinv. or. In other words, there have
been nwre auction days, and . greater amount of
time has been consumed In disposing of the sup
ply. This was because the supply towards the
end of the week was much larger than usual,
and also because there was aemsnd as long as
the. supply lartei While the fag end of the
market has hardly. been as strong as the condi
tions exlstlnc In the heart of the week, the
week as a whole has manifested -orononnced ac
tivity itnd strength and the outlet, which has
heen -UTorded for all classes, has been alike sat
isfactory to consignors and to selling Interests
In general. The Eastern and rural demand for
chunks and the ln-julr for choice drivers have
been particularly effective, and .the Sonthem de

high-water scares, has presented a very good

In a lor, and all together did not amount to
anything of Importance, nor change the condi

the week has been a remarkably strong one for
the cohlce grades of b'g mute, which have sold
as high as at any time In the memory of many
dealers. This Is the time when cholca to extra

forcing buyers to iy very liberal prices for
