A few consignments came In. but they were In nearly every Instance Intended for next week's auction, or for British cavalry Inspection, both of which reasons served about the same purpose in keep ing those arrivals off the Immediate market Things were necessarily quiet around the barns, and the dealers had no sales of any conse quence to report. The close of the week was not a much fraught with activity as the opening, but the conditions , so far as values wer re garded were not substantially changed. It has been a relatively good week for chunks and good blocks of all decent grades, which have -old stronger than the week prior, while It has been only a passingly fair market on Southern kind- those which at th present time should be In the most liberal demand.

MULES The mule market closed a fairly good week Saturday, with a good clearance of the week's arrivals. There were few holdovers of any kind on the market and the new arrivals w-ere confined to a few scattering head. Thus the trad was quiet by force of circumstances. This has been the largest week in mules for a couple of months. Receipts enumerated about 1.20O head In toto. one-third of which went to dealers direct, but there wer nearly twice as large offerings on the commission market as any week In a month. The movement wax better than It has been for about three weeks. Dealers showed a desire to bid on the offerings, and though prices did not record any advance over the week before, there was a distinctly qulcncr movement. Consignments sold readllv en arrival, and there were no accumulations In the pe.is from day to day. The bujlng en Southern ac count showed a little more volume than durlnc anv week recently, but even at that the lncrcai was not very considerable.
