ter. Kansas City Stock nrds. May
31. Arrivals ofcattle from the
range country were small last,
week, and total cattle receipts were
10,000 head less than pteceeding
.week. The market advanced 10 to
20 cents during the week, although
closing slightly below the best
time, which was on Tuesday. Hun
today is extra heavy for the .season,
at 14,000 head, and prices range
from steady on medium and light
weight stercs to 10 lower on heavy
steers. Supply fiom the. west and
southwest has been below the usual
quality for a week or more, and
prices do not show the full stiength
of the market, as top natives sold
at $6.90 today, and top Colorados
is only $G.30, paid for some Kern
pre & VVertz steers, weighing 1080
pounds. Colorado stockers and
feeders range from $4.75 to S5.10,
for medium class stuff, top natives
at 55.50 for stockers, and S5.65 for
feeders. A feature sale late last
week was 450 Arizona grass stock
heifers weighing 575 pounds at
$4.35. considered a strong price.
There is always a strong demand
for stock cows and heifers at this
point. It is believed that the
country has been pretty well
combed for supples of fed cattle,
and that recepts of today will not
be equalled again till after grass
cattle begin to move freelv.
Sheep and lambs advanced 50 to
75 centa last week, goats 25 to 50
cents higher. Total sheep receipts
for the month of May show a short
age of 30,000 head from same month
last year, or 17 per cent, pointing
to a continuation of the strong
markets now ruling. Run is 4000
head today, prices 15 to 25 higher,
feature sales today some Campbell
& Francis Arizona wethers weigh
ing 102 pounds at $0.50, and spring
Jamba $9.00. other clipped Arizona

week a shipment of wethers fed as

pounds, a very satisfactory conclu
sion of this experiment. Clipped
lambs bring up to $8.00, fat goats
