The hog market has been a good baro

while decline brings weakness in the
major grain. The stock market, too,
has greatly inllueiiced the price of
grain. The industrial situation has
caused the trade much worry, and has
created a great deal of uncertainty.
Heavy rains In Texas, shipments

orders have been large at times. With
export trade Indefinitely checked by
rates of exchange, a stronger market
depends upon increased domestic
consumption, which has been much
affected by high prices. The quality
of cattle marketed recently has uot
been especially good, and it is be
lieved the country Is likely to uuload
short-fed stuff 'excessively between
now nnd Christmas, thus depressing
prices. While receipts have increased
feeder demand has waned. Choice
stuff Is well taken, while poorer
grades have moved more slowly.
The demand for sheep and lambs

Hector's Strange Funeral.
A curious request regarding hU
funeral wns made by the Rev. Paulet
Mildmay Compton, for fifty-eight
years rector of Mappleton, a few
dn3 before his death.
The body was placed In a plain
oak coflln nnd, covered with prim
roses, was covoyed by means of a
fanner's wagon, drawn by a team of
four horses, ,to tho railway station,
nine miles away. The tails and
manes ot the animals were plaited
with straw and the team was han
dled by a smocked driver.
The cortege was followed by a
large crowd of 'villagers, to whom
the aged rector had endeared himself
during his over half a century's min
istration. At the railway station a special
train was In waiting, and the coffin,
wagon 'and horses were conveyed to
Romsey. near Southampton. Here
the. coflln was again placed on the
wagon and conveyed to MInsted. the
seat of the Compton family.
