a trouble with some of the cherries is
that seme of the growers will irrigate
a cherry tree after the fruit begins to
take on color. This will mane the
cherries soft and have a tendency to
turn them black in a few hours after
picking. ''Water cherries only while
the fruit is small," says Mr. Butcher,

Receipts of cattle totaled only about
49,000 for the week yet the trade was
the most disastrous that has occurred
at any time during the past year. The
supply of 23,663 received on Monday
was entirely too large for the demand
and prices dropped 20c to 40c on near
ly all grades of steers. While this
number is not so excessively large for
this market yet bulk of the arrivals
consisted of steers and the outlet in
all directions proved very bad.
ping orders were exceedingly small
and local packers claimed that their
coolers were full of beef and they
could get along with very small sup
plies. Consequently the market was
dull and draggy and large numbers of
steers were held over for Tuesday and
Monday ma rkets. Top steers for the
week reached 6c, which is the lowest

day should be an example in favor of

of grass and corn-fed Texans which
were on sale. Present values are

would do well to send their light steers
and butcher on Tuesdays, Thursdays
and Fridays, while heavy steers find
the best outlet on Mondays and
Wednesdays on which days shippers
fill most of their orders. Two or three
days before shipping cattle that have
been corn fed on grass should be tak
en out of pasture, putin dry lot and
fed on nothing but hay, corn or oats.
If this is done the cattle will shrink
less j n transit, make a much better
appearance on the market and sell 15c
to 20c higher than if shipped direct
from grass. Butcher stock formed &
