The colonel then turned to
the chauffeur and in a calm

I all right," and in a moment
' . Roosevelt was on his way to the
I hall with a bullet in his side.
The " ex-president did not
actually realize that he had been
shot until he got to the Audi

88,300, same weok last year 78,

25 .higher than a week ago, a?
tho demand -has been strong
from all sources, Shipments to
the country in four days amount
to 27,000 cattle, and outside
killers havo bought heavily this
week. Local packers havo killed
more cattle in the last two
weeks than any similar time this
11. Buyers seem to think
native pastures havo shot their
wad for this season, and the
p.rgc proportion of trash bears
out the theory. The pre
ponderance of low grade cattle
also indicates that the country
i3 being scraped down close in
cattle, in responso to the
magnetic influence of high
prices. Opinion is shaping itself
more favorably toward tho mar
ket on fed cattlo this season.
Prime cattle havo been off the

Sheep received here this week
7G.900, last week 75,000, same
