Kansas City Stock Yards, June 21, 1910. The fairly good supply of II, 000 cattle was estimated for to day early this morning, but act ual receipts fell short about one thousand. The best beef cattle sold firm, with a top sale at $8. 50, medium grades were about steady, lower grades weak and slow, It is the natural tendency of the market at this season for grass cattle to slide downwards, while "hard fat cattle usually grow in favor. At this time not enough good choice cattle are available to fill the demand. Kill ers have been wanting to pound the market on middle and lower grades of killing cattle for some time, and they are able to pur sue almost any sort of bear tac tics this week, being temporari ly well stocked, and with a fairly liberal supply in sight for the next day or two. Greenwood county cattle started this week but shipments of these heavy wintered steers will not be lib eral for another week or two. A few sold yesterday and today at $7.00 to 7.50. Bulk of the na tiva steers sold today at 6.75 to 8.00, some few shipments below 6.00, cows at $3.75 to 6.00, heif ers 4.50 to 7.00, a few fancy heifers at 7.40 to !7.65, bulls 3.75 to 5.90, calves firmer this week, tops 8.00, stockers 3.50 to 5.50, feeders 5.10 to 6.25. The supply of quarantine cattle here this week has dropped off one-third from same day last week, and will likely be moderate for two or three weeks ahead, because of the finish last week of the season for cake fed steers from Texas, which class made up a large share of the supply of quarantines hee last week. Light hogs sold c higher today, with one lot at 9.65, and balance of the light weights at 9.55 to $3.60, butcher weights strong at 9.45 to 9.60, and heavy weights weak, $9.45 to 9.55. Today is the first day light hogs have taken a commanding lead and dealers say they will continue to head the list indefinitely ahead, because the lard stocks of pack ers are increasing, whereas bacon is a scarce article. The aupply today was 15,000 head, 2,000 more than first estimate, and the close of the market was 5 to 7 1-2 cents lower than the best. Sheep and lamb supply today 6,000 head, market weak to 10c lower, top spring lambs, $7.90, best wethers, $5.25, ewes; $5.00. Texas muttons, $4,75, killing goats, 3.90, brushers, 3.50. The big break last week has shut off the supply to a certain extent, but buyers are still particular about quality and their lack of action serves to emphasize the slackness of trade requirements, and gives little promise of any improvement in the near future. Hot weather is always a bear fac tor, or at least it is a good talking point for the buyers. The official statement of the financial condition of the Trego County State Bank appear s else where in this issue. The state ment shows that this popular banking house is one of the strongest financial institutions of its age in the middle west and its rapid growth is due to its conservative business methods and the fair and impartial treat ment shown its customers either large or small.

FORECAST FAVORS YOUNG FOR CONGRESS The Fight is Between Young and ReederWhite and "Also . Ran." Numerous estimates of thie rel ative strength of the several congressional candidates have been published broadcast, the last one by the Jewell County Monitor. "The Daily "Gazette ha been collecting as reliable information as can be gotten from every source possible. It is a signi ficant fact that the thirty or more of the leading Republican newspaxjers of the district are actively supporting Senator Young, some of which are from Reeder's county and some from White's county. The steady gain Mr. Young is making as the campaign progresses, indicates he is a sure winner. White's "backing in the race again," his extravagant elaims and his method of beatina the air, will fool no one, for the fight is between Young and Reeder. Here is the estimate for each county in the Sixth district.
