The market at these yards mm reported satisfactory to both buyers -jnd sellers. There was seme complaint from country drovers that the P. & W. 1 tail rear", was slow in transportation of stock. Cntlle, It will be seen that receipts wore 145 head less than last week. With tue falling off of receipts there came no ix icreascd activity of markets. Supply was arjply efficient for demand, but market was. firm at last week's prices for all desirab'.e grades. Best heavy Western cattle, weighi nf: 1,500 to 1,000 pounds, were bold at S4.G5 to 54.70; medium weights, 1,300 to 1.400 pounds, St 40 to 51.50; prime light weights. 900 to 1.100 ounds, SAToto $3.90; com inou to lair thin re uf ;h steers, J3.00 to $3.50. The cattle in roost de inand were good smooth steers weighing from 1,200 to 1,300 pounds. This grade lound ready t xie at 51.25 to 54.40. Fresh cows were slow at ',,25.00 to $40.00 and no sales reported.

The holders did not realize expectations of pro fits, hut came out ahead, at prices ranging lr au S3 to S3 50. A leading drover who was in Chicago last week repurts that prices there VA?re low enough up to Friday to furnish a fair Aiargin of profit. Those who bought their (stock before Friday are all right on this week's operations. Droiers at Ilerr's Island seem "tatter satisfied oter the situation this week -tran Cor a month or two past. , nberp and Lnmb. Offerings were unusually heavy. Demand was good, bnt not good enough to absorb the extra supplies. Reports from Eastern markets were not very faorable. The result of this combination of depressing influences was that prices dropped from 25 to 50c per cwt. The best heavy Western wethers sold at $4 50 to 51 75; medium to good, S4 (0 to S4 25; common to lair, S3 50 to $3 75: lambs, 5c to 6c per l-ound, with a few extra line commanding 6Kc Receipts, from Chic-urn.

The current number of a Minneapolis jour nal gives the following facts from its London correspondent concerning the whea t situation in Europe- In France, England, and in fact all western Europe, weather has been most pro pitious ot late, and the wheat cror. will be gath ercdat least two weeks ahead of its average time. The crop is not only ahead of time, but is unusually large In eastern Europe reports are much less favorable. Tje winter wheat crop of Russia will be little nyjre than half the average neld. The estimate ,s 54,000,000 bushels against 94 000.000 bushels la jt year.

Trading in wheat was only riioderate to-day, and at times business lapsed Into a positively dull state. The feeling through out was nervous and unsettled. Local flatting was narrow, with scalpers generally working the bull side for a turn. The decrease in the risible supply proved about as expected, though some traders looked for a larger decrease. Shipments of Indian wheat last week were a little larger than for the week before, though they are not heavy as compared with the ship ments for the corresponding period a year. Advices from the Northwest were quite bear ish, though they emanated mostly from rail road sources They show the wheat crop of Minnesota and Dakota to be generally in ex cellent condition, estimates on the yield being from an average crop to considerable better than an average. Small grains in Nebraska were said to be mostly cut. In the winterwheat districts the weather continues rainy, enough so, at least, to seriously retard a free move ment of the new crop. All futures bevond July opened fractionally nnder Saturday's latest bids, fluctuated nar rowly for a time, declined slightly, and during the last hour, under an active demand from the shorts advanced sharply 1c. closing Jc higher for tlje day. A firmer feeling was developed in corn. The volume of business was not heavy and trading was somewhat restricted, owing to the moder ate offerings The market opened a shade higher than the closing prices of Saturday, was firm and gradually advanced c became quiet, receded a trifle and closed &io higher than Saturday. Oats were quiet and steady with no new features to note. Trading was moderately active in mess pork, especially early in the day. Opening sales were made at 5c advance, which was followed by a further appreciation of 57c Later prices receded 1012c Toward the close the market was steadier, but closed quiet. Lard was stronger and ruled about 2c higher. Earlier the feeling in short ribs was firmer and prices rallied 2K5cvith moderate trad ing. Later the market was not quite so strong, and outside figures were not supported.

Pittsburg Suburbs Boomed bj a Prominent Physician of Cincinnati. HOME M0NEI PLANTED IN MORTGAGES A tip was given yesterday of a deal in real estate involving nine acrcs.situated not far from the corner of Franks town avenue and Fifth avenue. The purchaser did not pay cash for the ground, but traded a block of houses in Allegheny City for it. It is val ued at 850,000, and will be subdivided and put on the market. Petroleum made a spurt and touched the dol lar line yesterday, closing at 93c, the best for nearly four years This is encouraging to the brokers, but they should not shout ugtil they are out of the woods. The Standard wants cheap oil for its refineries, and while the mar ket under the pressure of bullish statistics and scarcity of certificates may have tempora rily slipped from its grasp, it will no doubt take prompt action to Keep the price within the pre scribed limits This would be in strict keeping with the pre vious policy of the octopus A departure from its ancient custom would show a liberality which would be as surprising as unexpected. We shall see what we shall see. It is stated as a significant fact that within the last few days a good many orders for steel rails have been placed in a quiet way. Agents of Eastern mills have closed for 15,000 tons and are In treaty on at least 30,000 tons more. The present allotments are on a basis of 1,212,000 tons for the year. Up to July 1 963,553 tons had been sold, and the subsequent business makes a total to date of nearly if not quite 1,000,000 tons This places the market in an exceed ingly strong position. Forty-one mortgages were .filed for record yesterday, indicating that this will be a good week in that line of business The largest was for 825.000. Seventeen were for 81,000 and up to 86,40a A fair proportion of the nnmber was for purchase money. All was home capital. George Wilson, a prominent physician of Cincinnati, was visiting friends m the East End yesterday. In the afternoon he made a tour of the city, after which he said: "I saw nothing to cause apprehensions of an unusual amount of sickness Your streets and alleys are in good condition cleaner than ours. Your sew erage is very good. I discovered nothing on the surface to breed disease. I tested the water and f onnd it reasonably pure. Still I think it would be advisable to boil it before using for drinking purposes This would lessen the lia bility of children and old people to attacks of dysentery and cholera morbus "This is the first time I have been in Pitts burg in ten years You have made wonderful progress in that time. Your suburbs possess greater natural beauty than ours, and are better improved." Holders of first-class bonds or dividend-paying stocks can always find a good market for them, but as a general thing it is more difficult to buy than to sell. Thus on Saturday, the blackboard at the Exchange was covered with figures representing bids for bank stocks but not a single transaction resulted. Rapid transit schemes are springing up in all directions Among the latest is one out Center avenue, opening up another route to tho East End. A few streets should be reserved: but, as a general proposition, there cannot be too much rapid transit for the public Thero may be too much for the Investors but that is their lookout. Hot weather is not a good time in which to push great enterprises Hence, probably, the comatose condition of the Real Estate Ex change scheme. A few of its friends however, are still doing good missionary work for it, and are confident of ultimate success It would be the making ol the real estate business of Pittsburg. From the action of the governors of the Bank of England on Friday, in refusing to ad vance the rate of discount, it is plainly not their intention to permit any drainage of British bullion for French or South American account; hence it is reasonable to suppose that the foreigners who are in need of gold bars will continue to seek tbem here. The cables from the other side indicate that there Is a little more life in the various departments, par ticukuly so in that for American securities DULL BDT STRONG. Local Stocks Quiet bnt Firmer Bayers Larselv Outnumber Sellers. The stock market yesterday was dull in re spect of actual business, hut blddingwas lively, buyers more numerous than sellers and prices with one or two exceptions, a shade better than Saturday's closing. John D. Bailey bought 20 shares of Merchants and Manufacturers' National Bank at 61, and sold a few minutes later at 6 These were the only transactions Brokers expect no ma terial Improvement until the many absentees return. It is supposed that the next whirl of impor tance will be In La Noria. A gentleman on the inside said yesterday that the forthcoming statement would be a good one. If so, of course, the stock will go up. It was very strong yester day. Something new is expected in Electric this week, but just what it will be is not clearly understood, and whether it will be for better or worse Is a matter npon which there is consider able difference of opinion.

The Financial Situation Viewed From Two Points of Ynntner. The Clearing House report yesterday showed the following totals: Exchanges 82,474,389 93; balances $491,390 IS. As indicated above, checking was good. In the loan department there was a moderate movement at the usual rates Depositing was good. Currency was rather scarce, but it was not down to the fam ine point. Money was reported in good sup ply. Harvey Fisk fe Sons New York, say: "With the small amount of excess reserve in the banks how are we going to tide over the great demand for currency now almost on us to move the fall crop of wheat, cotton, corn and other products as well as the increased needs for Industrial purposes? It is our opinion, as large dealers in Government bonds that 850, 000.000 to 8100.000,009 4s could be bought without adancing the market price over 3 or 4 per cent. We have always held that as long as the Gorernmentcould purchase its 4s to save 2 per cent for each and every year they had to rnn. It was the best thing conld be done with its surplus The 4s now have jut 13 years to run to maturity: If outstanding until that time the Government will have paid. In principal ana in terest, 172, or 81,720 for each f 1,000 bond. A sav ing of 2 per cent for each of the 15 years would amount to 8360 on each 81,000 bond; thus if the Government was compelled to pay by the scarcity of bonds 186, or SLS60, for each 81,000 bond, there would be a saving to the people of 8360,000 in each 81,000,000 purchased; while the scattering of the money into the channels of trade and commerce would result in untold good to the country. Nov, unless ve are very much mistaken 111 our opinion, the Secretary will bavo no trouble in supplylngall his present wants at considerably less than 136. The Secre tary of the Treasury is now offering to buy 4;s at a price which nets the Government a saving of less than IK per cent for each year 2V years they still have to run and gets no bonds worth talking about." As an offset to this Secretary Windom was recently quoted as saying that, there were no apprehensions of a money stringency, and in proof he pointed to the fact that; while the Government stood ready to buy in its bonds, holders refused to sell them. As they pay less than 2 per cent, premium counted, this would not be the case if money were really or pros pectively stringent.

The Dollar Line Touched Best Cloalnn for Nearly Four Years. The oil market yesterday was bullish and ex cited. For the first time In just four weeks it touched the dollar line. Trading was quite lively both East and West, Pittsburg giving the cue. The market opened strong at 95, where it hung for a few minutes and then weakened to 9 the lowest price of the day. Then an advance set in, which was not inter rupted until it sold up to $1, at which price sev eral small lots were unloaded. The market then declined slowly the rest of the day, clos ing at 93 with one exception the best for near ly four years The highest in New York was The short interest is very light, less than at .any previous time since the Exchange was opened five years ago. This is a strong factor in sustaining the market. The best reasons that can be given for the advance are bullish statistics and scarcity of certificates A New York telegram says: Petroleum was stronger and prices moved higher than ever be fore this year, August option selling up to 81 per barrel and spot oil reaching 98c The ad vance was caused mainly by an attempt of Wall street and Pittsburg operators to cover their short accounts, but they had to climb high to get any certificates and it is under stood that the outstanding short interest re mains as large as ever. Spot oil opened steady at 94c, and started upward immediately after the first sales, and before noon advanced to 98.

Their Weakness Throws a Wet Blanket Over the Stock Market Bis Drop In Buffar HocklncjValley Leads the Dowoward Proces sion la the Bond List. New York, July 22. The week on the Stock Exchange opened with a dull and declining market, though considerable irregularity and f everishness marked the trading, and the final changes for the day are generally fractional and very irregular. The same influences which made the market so weak on Saturday prevailed at the opening, and first prices were from to per cent lower than Saturday's closing figures The traders and professionals were still inclined to hammer the list, while commission people were doing nothing, and there were few London selling orders in the market. Thero was some buying for Western account, however, and it was noticed that there was more inquiry in the loan crowd for the Western stocks while in all the leading stocks there was evidence of better support. After the weak opening the market became quite strong, though the movement was of slight Importance -The improving tendency was hampered by the weakness in the trusts, in which several stop orders were uncovered, the special cause ot the declino being tho de cline in beet sugar in Europe. Sugar scored a decline of 2 per cent in the first hour, and the others lost fractional amounts The official denial of Saturday's story of the sweeping reduction in Missouri rates was received, and turned over some of the traders to the long side and brought in some outside buying or ders, which lifted the general list to something above first prices, Missouri Pacific leading. The highest prices were generally reached shortly after noon, when it was announced that the Missouri Commissioners had ordered a reduction in some rates and Missouri Pacific quickly lost all the improvement ot the fore noon, and the rest of the list, while subsiding Into intense dullness, showed a sagging tend ency. The traders aeain attaefcad th list later, and toward delivery hour the downward I movement uecame more pronounced. The C C, C. ft St. L. stocks however, showed marked strength, and advanced 2 per cent from its lowest price In the last hour there was less business, but prices rallied a little and the close was dull but fairly steady at Irregular changes of small fractions from the opening prices Sugar Trust is down IJf, and Northern Pacific which suffered from a rumored issue of 315,000,000 debenture bonds Vt per cent, while Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and St. Louis rose VA. Railroad bonds showed no change from the conditions which prevailed last week, though there was some little more animation thju at that time. The tone of the market was weak, however, and tbo Hocking Valley Gs took the lead in the decline. The 6s were most active, and furnished 3104,000 out of the total day's trading of 8966,100. and were very well held. St. Paul, Iowa and Mississippi lost 3 at 115 Hocking VaUe 6s lost 0 at 50.

Mr. James Brown, a well-known citizen ot Allegheny county, formerly residing in Glen wood, but who has for the past 11 years lived in Hampton township, has passed through an eventful experience. His disease, although not unlike that of many others assumed cer tain conditions that gave him great alarm. He had a continuous dropping of offensive matter from his head into the throat, where it as sumed a dry, tenacious condition, rendering it almost impossible for him to raise it out. There was a tickling sensation in his throat, and, as the poisonous matter extended down into the bronchial tubes of his lungs, he coughed badly both dav and night. He felt great tightness and a stufTed-up condition in his throat and lungs His breath became very short, and, as the dis ease further preyed upon his system, he lost flesh and became very weak. He had pain over the eyes poor appetite, coated tongue and belching of gas after eating. Although 61 years of age, he received treatment from the physi cians of the Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute, at 323 Penn avenue, and he became entirely cured of these diseases. Ho adds: "I am glad to give my testimony for publication, as I have been cured as above stated, by the physicians of the Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute. "James Bbown."
