The weakening of the lamb market last
week comln light after the bullish move
ment that hsd pret ailed during the early
P3rt of February has set the tslent oa
the unknown sess once more says the
Drovers Telegram During tbe rapid ad
vance nothing could be heard on all sides
but talk of 7 lambs before snow leaves
the cround Tbe reaction that set la last
week however again changed the senti
ment of all but the most optimistic
One promluedt dealer on the local yards
declares that lie would not be a bit sur
prised were lamb to soli under the 7
mark all spring and summer He gives as
his reason the fact that excessively high
prices of mutton and Lamb always react
upon themtelves by curtailing the demand
which In turn means lower values
The question of high prices of mutton Is
one therefore that admits of strong argu
ment from the bear side Bo h the pro
ducer and tbe manufacturer uhe packer nr
butcheri naturally wish an equitable scale
of prices to prevail but whin values be
come cxcetslrfy high rheie Is a light In
piospeot A I ug as tne butchers cuu sel
Uelr dressed oroduem with no abatement
ot tbe demand tbey naturally give hluher
Pile for the raw material If there Is un
adnunleriged shottage of snppil through
on the countn When the limit has be n
leatbed hoveMT aud tbe buying public
Mrps with a aslt and refuses to eat thai
1 lass of meat until It becomes cheaper
fomethlng has to let go ana that sum
thing Is the cost of the lite sheep
The question of 7 lambs this spring is
oue thst must be fought out by the saot
ace on the one band and the pockcilxxk
on the other V0i imfrMt tae dealer
1 whether tbe former can raise the 1 uut
