IBifih School Closed Until Monday, No- j
vember 15 th The wave of mumps that is passing - over our town and county reached its crest on Monday when 0 to 70 of the :. 132 High School students found it necessary to atisent themselves. Classes were badly broken up and Prof. Niesley decided to close until Monday, November 15. There seem ed to be little else to do. One very unpleasant feature was the necessity of calling off the Havs Trego foot bail game. Our townsmen were forced to cancel the order for a special train and today everybody is regretting there is nothing lie can do to relieve the situation. Our High School boys, our citizens, everybody in touch with Trego county or its High School was looking forward to November 10th to settle the leader- fehip of the Golden Belt district. The fates are against us. We did not so decree. , METHODIST REVIVAL NOTES Eev. Woodward will till his regular appointment at Ogallah in the after noon, Sunday.

They are entertaining, but that is not all ycu can say about them. You know there is hardly a periodical published that is' full of time-wasting stories, but not a single story in The Youth's Companion is a time waster. Take the stories of C. A. Stephens. It would be hard to pick out one from which you cannot learn something useful and yet entertaining. Some of The Companion stories re fresh your knowledge of geography; some tell you the mysteries of chem istry, some reveal the secrets of for estry and of general farming. They cover a wide range. They are chosen with an eye to the possible likings of every member of a Companion family stories of vigorous action and stirring adventure for boys, stories of college life and domestic vicissitudes for girls, stories that range all the way from sheer drollery to deep serious ness for men and women. ' There are no stories quite like those in The Companion. If you are not familiar with The Companion as it is today, let us send you sample copies and the Forecast for 1916. e subscribers who send $2 00 for lltt will receive free a copy of The Companion Home" Calendar for 1916, in addition to ail the remaining 1915 Issues from the time the subscription is received.

MARKET REPORT Kansas City Stock Yards, Novem ber 9, 1915. Good receipts of cattle at all the markets this week has given buyers the advantage, and prices have a lower tendency all around. A load of big shorthorns, 1652 lbs average, sold at I0.00 today, choicest price this week. Short, fed steers range from 87.75 lo SS.50 including steers that were ready to move otf the grass some weeks ago, had the price suited at that time. ' Low priced beef steers sell down to $6.50. The tendency is toward a wider range in beef cattle prices, more of a prerc-. ium going on the prime grades, and the lower grades being bought with discrimination, according to merit. This is partly due to more liberal supplies, and also because of the spar ing use of corn in the finishing pro cess. Cows and heifers are in light supply this week, and are holding up better than steers, good cows So. "5 1 to .40, medium heifers 6.00 to $6.75, choice heifers $8.75, some fancy mix ed yearling steers and heifers today at $9.50. Bulls sell at $4.50 to $5.50 and some common western bulls around - $4.25. Stocker and feeder trade is dull at recent declines, and there is a large number of stock cat tle in the yards. It is the best week of the year to buy, full assortments, very large numbers, and lowest prices of the season. A few feeders bring up to $7.75, most of the feeders $6.50 to $7.50, best range yearlings $7.65, bulk of the stock feeders $6.00 to $7.00 some useful cattle around $5.50. Hog receipts are liberal, 17000 head today. Tl.e market is pretty apt to remain under the seven dollar mark, but dealers do not look for prices to fail much more on this break, and the final winter basis can not go below 4-6. 00. without getting down below cost of production, a con dition that trii'ie law- automatically prevents for any extended period. About l'i per cent of the supply is bought for shipment to Eastern kill- ers at prices above the ordinary pack er market. Sheep and lamb receipts are 11000 today, market 1U higher on fat stock, steady on feeders. Fourteen loads of range Iambs from Colorado sold at $S.bo, 10 higher than top yesterday, but finished fed western lambs would bring 10 to 15 cents more than the top lambs brought today. A big string of feeding larwbs brought $8.15, and full range -on feeders is $7.75 to $8.25. Fat yearlings bring $6.35 to $7.25, feeding yearlings up to $6.75, good fat ewes $5.50 to $5.i-5, feeders $4 to $5. breeders 5.o0 to $7.00. A large per cent of tiie supply, 25000 in two. days is feeding and breeding stock, and ti.is is a good week to buy. .7. A. Kickart, Market Correspondent. Messrs. R. C. Wilson, I. T. Purcell and A. P. Hinshaw at tended the Bankers' Convention at Ellsworth last Tuesday. W. P. Clayton of New Mexico bought a fine bunch of high grade Shorthorn cattle of W. E. Baldwin the first of the week. Mr. B. knows a good critter when he sees it as he is an old cattleman and hasbought thou sands of cattle. ; The young man who had his throat cut during a poke- game at the stock yards at Collyer some time ago and was taken to the Ha s hospital for treatment died last Monday night. Three young men are boarding with Sheriff Allman implicated in the crime. John Barleycorn got in his work once more as the young man aceussed of the crime says he don't remember a thing about the terrible deed.
