KAXSAS CITY, Oct. 9. Last week
was the banner week of the season
in cattle receipts here, S3,000 head,
including 10,000 calves, but the pres
ent week promises to eclipse it. The
run today is 31,000 head, including
2000 Show cattle to be exhibited at
the Royal. Prices eased off a little
last week after the early- session on
Wednesday, and good beef steers
came in for as much loss as anything,
lo to 25 cents. Enough buyers from
the country came in to hold stockers
and feeders nearly steady, and but
cher grades lost only a shade. The
general market is steady to weak to
day, some sales 10 lower. Bulk of
the supply today is from distant
ranges. Seventy-five cars of Old
Mexico steers are on sale, mostly
direct from the republic, some fiom
Kansas. They sell at $3.S0 to $4.3.";.
Old Mexicos from eastern Colorado
sold at $4.1.. Panhandle two-year-olds
of good breeding sold at $5.25
today, to feeder buyers. A shipment
of Akard feeders ,from Montrose.
Colo., sold todav at $0.10 and $4.7.1.

Top natives are still el.g.ble in the
S figure, but only a few cattle get
up to $7.50, bulk of the fed steers
stop at $7, top native grassers .$7.10. j 4
bulk $o..0 to $6..0. Quarantine re
ceipts are Heavier man a ween or

carried on to feed, and runs from
that source are not threatening.
! Steers sell at 4 to $4.,.i, a few up to
$5.25, which is the top today. Pau-

The expected shortage in cattle next

extra number of cattle being carried

week, but in the end were not ehang-1

Peter Marx, of Walnut Creek, dis-
eoverer of the skeleton of a prchis-
torie human giant on his farm several
weeks ago. while in the city yester-
dav stated that the curiosity is at-,aI1
tracting snch deep interest in scien
tific circles that he is almost de
luged with letters, and during the
past two weeks has been visited by
Mr. and Mrs. Shoup, the former an
attache of the Smithsonian Institute
at Washington, who made the long
journey especially for the purpose of
viewing the frame of the giant of
other days. Mr. Shoup was provided
with photographic instruments and
took several pictures of the freak. He
also desired to take it to Washing
ton, but this request was held up by
Mr. Marx until later, and after he
ascertains whether Arizona desires
it for it probable state museum. In
that event, it will be donated, Mr.
Marx stating that as the snbject was
found in the territory, it should be
kept here. Mr. Shoup was very much
interested in those portions of the
human frame that were intact, par
ticularly the skull which indicated
that the giant was of such abnormal
size as to be beyond comprehension
as that of a human being. Mr. Marx
has uncovered another Aztec burying
ground near the point where the
skeleton was found, but all skeletons
dug up arc normal in size and attract
but little attention, only a small
number being found. An old irrigat
ing ditch has also been partly un
covered, and it is Mr. Shoup 's belief
that the place was intelligently cul
tivated in some past age by an in
dustrious people. Mr. Marx has un
covered many implements, some of
which are unique in construction, and
for what purposes they were utilized,
is problematical.

of his western trip a cane cut from

a tree before the glacial period. The
wood was found in the valley of the
south fork of the Old Man river in
the southern part of the province of
Alberta by Prof. W. S. Foster, a geo

kane. The cane, which is valued at

bed, was found beneath 00 feet of
glacial wash," said Prof. Foster, giv
ing a history of the discovery, "and
preserved to the present day by one
of the wonderful freaks of nature.
The peat, from which the stump was
faken, is on a sandstone formation
and is about three feet in thickness.
Seaweeds and flag-stocks found near
by also were well preserved.
"This peat bed was uncovered by
the wearing away of the glacial wash
by floods and the flow of the Old
Man river. There is not the least
question iu my mind that the tree
grew before the glacial period, more
, than 2.10,000 years ago, but so far I

L. Tomlinson, superintendent of

Canyon, while in the city yesterday
stated that machinery for the new
cyanide plant is en route from Cali
fornia and Utah, and will begin to
arrive before the first of the month.
It will be instalted immediately, the
fonndations being laid and a large
tonnage of ore ready for treatment.
In the past few months a system of
thorough exploitation has been con
ducted on the group at five different
points resulting in a satisfactory pro
duction. The main work has been
centered on the Mineral Springs
elaim, where a tunnel is being run,
and which has reached a distance of
420 feet. It is projected for 2700
feet and when that point is reached,
it will cut the vein G35 feet deep.
In addition it will be the main work
ing base for future operations. Mr.
Tomlinson states that the immense
tonnage extracted and ready for
treatment gives an average value of
$10 a ton in gold without assorting;
and taken as it was mined at differ
ent points from the surface to the
deepest parts of the group.
