Kansas City Market Letter
(Ily J. A, IMckart, Correspondent)
Kansas City Stock Yards, July
22, 1912. Cattle sold a little
lower all around last week, caus
ing considerable protest from
shippers. Buyers claim consump
tion is decreasing, hence their re
luctant attitude. Shippers ac
cordingly curtailed their assign
ments today at all the markets,
resulting in a stronger market.
Receipts here today, amount to
10,500 cattle, besides 1600 calves.
Prime cattle sold up to 9.55 today
and are called 10 higher in some
cases. Pasture cattle were
knocked 15 to 25 cents last week,
and did no better than hold steady
today. Chase county took the
premium tfaday on this class, with
some 1547 pound steers at nine
dollars. Some big steers that
came up from Texas this spring,
from the same locality brought
6.90. Greenwood and Butler con
tributed sparingly today, the best
only going .to 8.10, 1240 pounds.
Ellsworth and Saline came for
ward with a fair run, that sold at
6.40 to 7.60. Quarantines were
in light supply today, 116 car
loads, and they are selling a shade
stronger than Friday, top 6.60,
bulk 4.75 to 6.00. Grass cows
bring 3.67 to 5.35, including heif
ers, calves are a valuable assett,
the best at 8.00 to 8.25. Country
buyers are becoming more restless
as the corn crop becomes more
certain of being a big one, but
they have not yet put their bids
up even with the packers' bids on
good feeders. A few half fat
steers are going out at 7.00 to
7.50, plain feeders 6.00 to 6.80,
stock steers 4.25 to 6.50. Four
thousand hogs was the size of the
run today, and they sold steady,
though outside reports said five
lower at some other markets. A
notable circumstance in the hog
market is the shipment of about
80 car loads of hogs from the up
river markets to Ft. Worth in the
last ten days, in spite of the
scarcity of hogs in the north none
went from here, as this market is
running on famine supplies any
way, 4000 here today, top today
is 7.65, bulk 7.25 to 7.60. Sheep
and lamb receipts were small last
week, but no repairs were done to
the market. Wethers and ewes
got a slap today, market off 10 to
15 cents, lambs about steady, tops
7.00, wethers are worth 4.60, ewes
4.00 lor best. Reduced consump
tion is the explanation put for
ward by buyers. Run is 5500
CLAIMS TAXES UN-
EQUAL ON CATTLE
"The state tax commission in
allowing an arbitrary raise on the
cattlemen without going to the
trouble of equalizing the assess
ment of livestock all over the state
is taking the lazy and unjust way
of raising the revenue from taxa
tion," said Geo. W. Atkinson, the
pioneer cattleman of Santa Cruz
county, on his return from Nogales
where he appeared before the
board of supervisors sitting as a
board of equalization, against a
raise in his assessment.
"It would be comparatively
easy for the tax commission to
equalize the assessments of live
stock," said Mr. Atkinson. "The
records of shipments are available
through the Livestock Sanitary
board. A careful investigation by
the commission would disclose
that some cattlemen are now pay
ing on 33 1-3 per cent of their
herds, while others are paying on
from 70 to 100 per cent."
"In Santa Cruz county, for ex
ample, the tax payers are assessed
on a basis of 70 per cent while in
Pima county the assessment has
been made on a basis of about
33 i-3 per ojnt.
"I would like to inquire for
what purpose the tax commission

was created? About all they have
succeeded in doing so far is to
make arbitrary raises in assess
ments on stocks of merchandise,
cattle and other lines of business
without going into the merits and
determining where a raise should
be justly made."
Recent rains have made good
for stockmen this fall. Present
indications are that there will be
plenty of beef on the mountain to
turn off this fall.

from Texas with seventy head of

Fires in the Rain
There are several ways of build
ing a camp fire that an ordinary
rain will not put out. This is one:
Lay two sticks on the ground,
parallel with each other, and from
two to four times as far apart as
the diameters of the sticks. Across
the two lay two more, as if you
were starting a cob house. If
necessary, drive stakes into the
ground to keep the sticks in place.
For the next story of the cob
house use only one stick, and
place that on the side on which
you are to be when the fire is
burning. These five sticks may
be green. Dry wood makes a
better fire, but it needs re
Roof over the cob house with
any kind of dry wood. The harder
the rain, the more wood there will
have to be if this roof is to shed
water. Each stick of the roof
should rest on the backlog and
on the last the fifth stick of the
cob house, and be kept in place
by the side sticks.
Fill the inside of the house with
kindlings, and set fire to them.
The roof will burn on the under
side, where the heat of the fire
keeps it dry. As each stick burns
through, it falls into the fire that
fills the interior of the cob house.
The camper watches the fire, and
cooks through the opening be
tween the fore stick and the top
stick that supports the roof. He
also feeds brands and small kind
lings through this opening, but
puts the large sticks on the roof.
It is surprising to see in how
hard a rain this kind of a fire will
burn. The Youth's Companion.

One hundred and twenty pounds,

If you are a housewife you can
not reasonably hope to be healthy
or beautirul by washing dishes,
sweeping and doing housework all
day, and crawling into bed dead
tired at night. You must get out
into the open air end sunlight. If
you do this every day and keep
your stomach and bowels in good
order by taking Chamberlain's
iablets when needed, you should
become both healthy and beautiful.
