Chicago, March 7. CATTLE There was
a sale to-day nt $0. That Is the hlkhest
point reaclp-d since tho market started up
ward, but prices were not stronger to-day
than on yesterday. There was a light sup
ply, only 11,000, but the demand was rather
indifferent, and the very best that sellers
could do was to hold the market steady.
Thoro were several hunches of choice 1. 100')
l.COO pound good enough to bring $5.00'u5.75,
und the hulk of the steers sold at better
than $1,50. Trading In cows and hulls was
principally at $3,501(3.75. They were steady.
IIOUS Ilecelpts, 31.000. The demand was
active and prices were firm, with n slight
unwnrd tendency. The top, as was tho
case yesterday, was $1.10. but there wero
more sales above $1.25 than on either of tho
preceding days of this week. Kciy sales of
heavy hogs were made below $1.20, and tho
popular prices for lightweights wero $l.05"f
4.15. Common and light and rough mixed
sold nt $3,905(3.93, and culls and skips wer
disposed of to city butchers at $2.5on3.25.
SHEEP Hecelpts, 10,000. The sheep trodo
was dull and values weak. Although tho
fresh receipts fell within moderate limits,
thu arrivals for the last four days reached
the large tutal of 51,fii, or nearly 8.000 moro
than arrived at the same time last week.
Htiyers Insisted upon lower prices and tho
day's work was done at about 10c off. Sheep
sold principally at $3.5uii 1.30, and $2.50-i 1.50
