Western Car Orders for Cattle Show Big Decrease This Month "Our information from the Wet rould indicate that the movement of western cattle to market is in its final rUges," naicl E. E. Grimes, joint agent for the various railways at Omaha, Car orders have shown a considerable decrease, as far as cattle are concern ed, and it looks like another two weeks will bring to an end the main move ment from western ranges. Car orders at the cattle loading stations of Wyoming are 75 per cent lens than Ihey were a month ago. "Quite a few sheep are still moving ut of Wyoming, from range to feed lot and from range to market. Colo Tado Is not getting very many lamb.i the West this year, of course, but there seems to have been a substan tial inrrase in the feed-lot demand, according to recent reports from some f the western districts." In connection with the movement of the cattle to the Missouri river ami Chicafro this fall, it might also be noted that numerous western ship ments are being diverted to the west ern court. Coastal buyers have been operating in Utah and Idaho lately and it is rumored that they are paying Missouri river prices for what cattle they need. Trimmed Sailor and Sport Hats, $2.98 and $1.98.

The squaw race for the greased pig was one of the big events of the day. The crowd surged in about the squaws and the big and th eanimal didn t have-much opportunity to run. Mary Whitebelly. handicapped by the ab sence of one eye, was the first one of the women to get a grasp at the ant inal. She held on until some of her sisters stepped all -over her face in their scramble to get the animal, and the nip made one last leaD for lib' erty. Before he had gone thirty feet, however, the crowd and the squaws effected the capture. When the judges approached they found all six of the squaws hanging on to the animal, and most of them covered with lard. Mary was given th edecision, but it is prob able that after the pig was taken out to the camp, it was the Indian braves who got to eat the animal. Business Was Good. Reports from the forty or more business men who furnished the cash to stage the festival are to the effect that Saturday was one of the best bus iness days of the year. Practically eery business house in the city took especial pains to attract customers, tmd it has been months since there were fo many bargains offered to the public. There was hardly a line of merchandise on which special prices ; were not made, and the visitors t how-; ed that they were just as willing to Fiend money for merchandise as in, times past they have been willing to patronize the carnivas, concessions and other amu.-cnirnts. j The offer of free tickets on the Ford automobile with every dollar's worth j of merchandise sold proved to be a ! regular feature. There were thou- j sands of tickets given away and the demand for them continued up to the utt hour they were available, liood business wus not confined to any one line of business. The crowd purchas ed tires and notions, as well as cloth ing and jewelry. The special sales put on by several merchants proved splen did drawing cards.

The complaint was made by a railroad man, who said that on August 13, 1021, an agent came to his home anil asked his wife for a photograph which w as to be enlarged The agent did not ask for an order for the enlargement, but explained that an exhibition of 25 to October 1, and that if the work to be held in this city from September enlargements of Alliance people was was satisfactory, an opportunity would be offered to purchase the enlarged picture after the exhibition. September 25 and October 1 both passed, but no exhibition was held. A day or two ago a second representa tive of the company came to the city. He delivered the pictures, and pre sented a signed contract. The rail roader has the dpulicate in his posses sion, and it is unsigned. He has re fused to pay the price, $7.90, and the agents are threatening and bully ragging him in an effort to make him come through. They complain, he told the county attorney, that the rea son the exhibition was never held was that the man who was to stage it was taken suddenly ill. b-b I Save RotR n It Surely Pays You may save your money and Shoes too. .
