Market Letter for the Past Week.
Kansas City Market Letter
(lly J. A. Mleknrt. Correspondent)
Kansas Citv Stock Yards Feb.
10, 1913. There was a well de
fined improvement in the cattle
market last week, though actual
advances were not great, butcher
'grades doing about the best with
a 15 to 30 cent rise, stockers and
feeders gaining 16 to 25 cunts,
and stopping at the end of the
week at about the highest level of
the winter season. Beef steers
were uneven, but the feeling im
proved, and closing prices were a
little stronger than in the previous
week. The moderate run of 9000
head today confirmed the opinion
that careless liquidation is about
over for this winter, and the result
of the light supply was an advance
of strong to 10 higher prices cov
ering everything. The majority
of the cattle remaining in feed lots
are in the hands of professional
feeders, who are capable of nurs
ing the market along, and getting
the most out of it. Farm better
ment workers submit that the great
need of the live stock interests is
to devise some system of market
ing whereby the market supply
1 will be regulated in much the
same manner that the outgo of the
dressed product is regulated by
the killers. The marketing of
, cattle from now on will be an ex
position of this idea, balance of
the winter, it is believed. Top
native beef steers sold at 8.60
today, top quarantines 7.75, and
some beet sugar Colorados
brought 7.6o and 8.00 here last
ihursday. stock steers range
j from 6.00 to 7.50, and feeders from
7.00 to 7.60.
Hogs arrived in small numbers
to day, 5000 head, but the fact
that Chicago had too many pre
vented more than a 5 cent rise
here. The top was 7.85, bulk of
sales 7.65 to 7.80, and the general
trend of the market is distinctly
Sheep and lambs made good
Horses branded i gains last week and aged muttons
are strong today, lambs weak.
Ewes brought 5.40 and 5.50 today,
weathers worth up to 6.00, yearl
ings 7.50, lambs at 8.25 to 8.55
today. Dealers are not very sure,
but believe the present range well
Big Gattle Deal
It is reported from Bowie, Ariz.,
that Oscar Roberts, of Los An

cattle on the Triangle ranch to
W. I. Cox, of El Paso, Texas.

Buys Calves for Three Years
An unusual contract has been
made between Scharbauers Bros.
of Midland, Texas, owners ol the
famous Lone Star Hereford herd
and Fred Leek of Winkler county,
Texas. According to the contract
the Scharbauers agree to take all
the calf crop produced by Leek
out of 700 high-class Hereford
(cows for a period of three years,
or for the years 1013. 1914 and
1915. This is considered a unique
instance of dealing in cattle
Los Angeles Market Letter
Los Angeles, Cal. Feb, 7, 1913.
Beef delivered Los Angeles is
bringing for prime steers 7.50 fat
cows 6.50. Veal is scarcer and
harder to get at 7.50 to 8 cents
than -ever in the history of Los
California beef will not be plen
tiful from grass and will not be
ready to market before July.
Packers are realizing more than
ever the necessity of feeding their
own cattle. Packers who have
not fed directly or indirectly this
year are rustling hard right now
to fill their needs.
The scarcity of cattle is show
ing greater and more certainly
each day as the season advances.
In the market reports from this
city published over six weeks ago,
stock men were advised against
contracting too quickly. Some of
the Prescott men contracted at
$26 for yearlings and if they had
waited could now get $28 just as
easily as $26. This will apply in
a still greater degree to Flagstaff
fall cattle. Don't contract too
early or at first offers. Wait.
The demand and price will be
better in September by far than
in March. There is no risk as
the demand is sure and certain.
Those who waited last year made
over half a cent per pound. This
year it will be the same.
There is a tremendous demand
for cows under 7 years of age at
$28 to $30. There is also a good
demand for ranges and outfits as
they run and many sales are being
made already for whole outfits.
Feeders are principally the ones
buying stock ranges as it is re
alized in order to get cattle they
must grow them. This fall very
likely will see growers also feed
ing cattle. There is no good
reason why the big Arizona out
fits concentrating as they are
should not make the feeders profit.
They can by carrying their cattle
on loaned money or through pack
ing houses keep them four months
longer and make the feeders profit
of eight to twelve dollars per
head. It is the man who has the
cattle these days who has the de
ciding vote, as there are always
plenty of buyers.
The scarcity in the middle west
The Sun has told about before,
is now beginning to show up.
Cattle bring high prices even at
Denver and deliveries are very
Conservation of Stock
Letters urging the conservation
of the cattle of the country so that
the supply of beef will meet the
demands of an increasing number
of consumers, have been sent out
by R P. Woodburry, secretary of
the National Livestock exchange,
to the governors of all states in
which legislatures are in session.
Legislation is asked forbidding
the slaughter or sale for slaughter
of heifers calves or cows under 3
'years of age, except those unfit
for breeding purposes. Holbrook
The new trimmer at Miss Amy
Pringle's millinery emporium ex
pects Xo go on the stage soon and
marry some steel magnate or
other. She says there is more
fun trimmin' millionaires than
trimmin' hats, I see in the papers
where a feller in Baraboo, Wis.,
dropped dead while gettin' on a
train. By jing, the people in our
community dies of old age waitin'
for a train to come along. No
funerals lately. The financial
stringency makes folks work so
hard to make a livin' that they
don't have time to die. Foldin'
chairs for funerals, dances and
other social functions for rent, in
quire Amos Butts, also livery,
feed and sales stables.
It is not known who will run for
sheriff in our county next as every
body at present writing is engaged
in running away from him. Elmer
Jones got a knockdown to the new
trimmer. Ah, there, Elmer, Miss
Amy Pringle says all the best
waltzers are Daughters of the
Revolution. Willie Tumms has
the mumps. Seems as if that kid
had enough cheek without that.
Walks are some slickerish today.
Uncle Ezra Harkins fell down on
his face, and if it hadn't been for
his. whiskers he would have re
ceived some bumps, which luckily
he escaped.. -Before he could got
up, however, his whiskers froze
fast to the ice, and the boys had
to borrow a cross-cut saw from
Tibbitt's store to release him.
Mrs. Ansel Hanks keeps board
ers. But not very long. Who
ever saw an Indian with whiskers?!
Anson Frisby, our banker, spent
New Year's eve and ten shillin's
down to the city. Mrs. Frisby
has got a new dress made outen
Ansel Peabody Sundays in West
Hickeyville quite frequently lately.

a handsome pair. Wedding bells
are heard in the distance.
