In looking over the commissioner's proceedings if my adding machine is correct I see that we paid $597 for scalps in the last-quarter., Now since Prof. Dyche deelares the "Lobo" to be a creature of the imagination we must have slaughtered about 600 coyotes in the last three months. How much one can miss a thing in his judgment! I would have been willing to bet that there -were not many more than that in the county. I don't want to cast aspersions on anybody, but it is a little like Lin coln's rat hole, "It will bear looking into." In the hard times when we scratch ed for every penny and paid a bounty of $3000, and coyotes howled on every bill, and scalps were brought to us from adjoining counties so they say, we managed to pile up $800 on coyotes in a year, but we are thinning them ont, and wouldn't it be a good plan for the scalps to be burned each quarter in the presence of the com missioners, - then the dozen fellows who have been making these re marks could have no doubt that all things were right.

Kansas City Markets. Stock Yards, Kansas City, Mo.," Tues day, July 31st, 1906. Naturally the decline of 15 to 30 cents on beef steers last week cut down the receipts this week, but Chicago was an exception yesterday, 31,000 cattle being- centered there. The market would have ruled steady here but for this weakening influence, as the supply was several thousand below recant Mondays at this point; sales ranged from steady to 10 cents lower. The run today is small for 11,000 head, but tbe market has a weak tone, a few choice heifers sell ing stronger. An extra large percent age of the receipts just now are kill ing kinds, and ot these the big per centage is good weight steers, both fed and grass, while the hot term weather does not call for extra large numbers of cattle that will make the heavier cuts. The lighter weight animals from the strictly range coun try, except from the quarantine dis tricts, are still lacking, although their advent in considerable numbers is expected each week. The supply of stockers and feeders is small, and the quality undesirable. Top beet steers yesterday sold at $5.80, for fourteen loads of Nebraska fed Colo rado steers, top today $5.75, yearlings at $5.80, bulk of the fed steers $5.00 to $5.50, grass steers $4.00 to $5.15, heifers $3.50 to $5.25. cows $2.50 to $4.00, canners $1.75 to $2.25, bulls $2.20 to $3.50, veals 25 to 50 eents high er yesterday and today, top $5.65 to day, a few fleshy feeders at $4.00 to $4.(50, bulk of the stockers $2.35 to $3. io. Hogs are going down rapidly this week, market off 5 to 7i cents today, top $6.50, lor weights below 200 pounds, bulk of sales $6.35 to $6.45. The main competition is on bacon hogs and light weights for the -fresh meat trade, -all of those that will have to go into the packers' cellars getting the big gest decline every day, in fact medium to tough, heavy hogs are 15 cents be low the top now, and extremists pre dict a still worse fate for them. Not mauy heayy hogs are included here, however, average weight for July this year of all the bogs received wa 204 pounds. Supply today is surpris ingly heavy, at 19,000 head, run for July 210,000 head, against 151,000 last July, prices 90 cents cheaper a year ago than now. The big drop in mutton prices late ly has also reduced the supply of that class of stock, . run 1500 today, all natives, some ewes at $4.75, wethers at $5.75, wethers at $5.00, lambs $7.25 to $7.50. These prices may not be quite the limit in each class. Several strings of Utah feeders sold yesterday at $4.60 to $4.85, weighing from 80 to 95 pounds. Not much improvement in the market is expected, in view of the large numbers of Utah and Idaho sheep and lambs now about ready to come to market. J. A. Rick art, L. S. Correspondent.
