Siller and W. IL Harris. The company represent wealth and substantial character. The Dodge City correspondent of the Fi. Worth Journal says: The number of cat tle not contracted is so small (not oyer 115, 000) that sellers will have an easy time of it this year. They can sell every yearling driven at $14 if they only have the cheek to ask it. These are big figures, but those who now have cattle on the trail had better hold them than sell for less, as they must expect to pay $12 for them fur next year's drive. Tnere is no use selling for less than S14 and then go to Han Antonio and pay $12. It is too much like swapping dollars. With beef at present prices yearlings are worth $16 and will pay big money at these figures more than 20 per cent on the in vestment. Lied.
