shoes are famous
the world over for

Kansas City Stock Yards, Dec.
7. The market closed last week
in a healthy way on all classes
except prime beef steers and bulls
which remained inactive at lhe
bottom of the recent decline. Re
ceipts today are 12,000 head, and
sales are strong to 15 hieher on
all kinds except beef steers from
$8 up, which class are slow and
barely steady. Killers exert them
selves strenuously to secure big
rougn steers at $7.50 and under,
but claim the outlet for better
steers is narrow. Missouri steers
had an offer of $10.25 this morn
ing, the best cattle here today.
Bulls are half a dollar lower than
two weeks ago. fair to cood
butel er bulls around $6.25. Colo
rado beef steers sold at $7.10 to
$7.50, and some 700-lb. stockers
at $7.55. Some Gatewood heifers
sold in the Quarantine division
at $725, and good Oklahoma
steers brought $725, medium and
common light steers $5.75 to $6.50
Mockers and feeders sold 10 to

There arena charts in q-zzr-
antine regulations since the first
of last week, Chicago and St.
Louis operating under some re
strictions, which keeps those
markets at a disadvantage, and
live stock from released sections
of the quarantined area being
handled with precaution at all
markets. The flood of live stock
out of the released counties has
done little damage to cattle prices
but the hog market dropped 30
to 40 cents last week on account
of it. There was some recovery
at the end of the week, and the
market opened 10 higher here to
day to order buyers, top $7.15.
Packers bid 10 lower, but later
bought their hogs steady with
the close of last week, bulk of
sales $6.80 to $7.00. Receipts are
only 6,000 here today, but pack'
ers found excuse for desiring low
er prices in a run of 45,000 at Chi
cago, with 10 lower prices there.
Erratic markets are apt to devel
op during the next two or three
weeks, or until the excess hogs
have been marketed from the
states that were under quarantine.

more in some cases. Pea fed lambs
from Colorado brought the top,
and pretty good lambs sold at
$7.00 to $7.85. Sheep held almost
steady, some Ft. Collins ewes
weighing 100 lbs. selling at $4X0,
not more than 10 lower. The
