Strong Demand In Market for Good to Choice Business Animals. Chicago, July 31.—Satisfactory out let has been noted in the horse sales affecting good to choice offerlngs'ln the hbrse market, eastern inquiry for the better classes ruling fairly active, while local buyers have also been good patrons of sales when the best classes were put up for bids. Strong prices have prevailed for all of these classes, but dealers report just the reverse con ditions as governing the trade in me dium and common drafters, chunks, expressers and general purpose horses. The week's receipts, approximating 1,650 head and standing 100 above marketing here the previous week and 350 in excess of arrivals a year ago, have constituted largely plain and medium classes and this big volume of such kinds has proven far in excess of the needs of buyers, though the dealers have cleared stables well at prices about on a level with the low range noted a- week aco. Settlement of the teamsters' strike has failed to import any considerable activity into the demand for plain to fair heavy teaming horses, and the auction sales of these classes have been conducted slowly, though there has been free local outln^for all ani mals of the better grade, drafters of choice quality selling up to $225, while a considerable number of good kinds changed hands at $175@200. Express ers of the better class have also sold in good season at $135@160, but sales of the poorer grades at $100(3)120 have been made only after coaxing bids from the buyers. There has been fair inquiry for good feeders and these sold largely at $150® 175, with top kinds up to $185, while plain lots went at $135@150. Late sales at auction have been on the fol lowing basis:,-. Poor. Good 5 to fair. to best.

N. F. Reed. HISTORICAL WILD WE8T. Pawnee Bill's Wild West an Instruc tive Exhibition. The thrilling life of the rough riders of the western American plains is a matter of history. It Is but a few years since the great prairies of the western continent of America were peopled by the red men, the outcasts of society, the hordes of men seeking fortunes in the mountain fastnesses and the heroic guardians of life end property whose daring deeds have been the theme of many a story of adventure and ro mance. This fading memory of what actually existed but a few years since is revived by "Pawnee Bill" and the hardy men who ride beneath his ban ners. The days of heroic daring, hair breadth escapes, dire massacres and wild rides across the plains are revived by this wonderfully realistic exhibition of Pawnee Bill's. The shriek of the locomotive has taken the place of the warwhoop of the red man and the tomahawk and the scalping knife have been supplanted by the implements of agriculture. The freebooters of the frontier have disappeared before the advance of the white man and civiliza tion. The times of intense romance and lonely tragedy are no more, and even the remembrance of them, as recalled by Pawnee Bill's exhibition, seems but as a dream drawn from the pages of a strange and weird story. Pawnee Bill, however, does something more than recall memories engendered in our minds from reading Fenlmore Cooper and other writers. He presents the lights and shadows of early Amer ican life, and he has also gathered the representatives of much that is daring and romantic in Europe. It is an ex hibition that from start to finish stirs the blood and makes the heart beat faster. The "Wild West" is, however, some thing more than an entertainment its educational value is very great, and children enjoy it as much as their el ders. The program is long and com prehensive. The behdlder is trans ported from the plains of America to the deserts of Arabia, from the steppes of Russia to the torrid clime of Mexico and the home of the bull fighter to the tepee of the Indian and the round up of the cowboy. All is life and move ment, and stamping of horses and clanking of sabres, and wild shrieks and yells. In the grand review are introduced Indains from a half-dozen tribes, Arabs, Cossacks, Mexicans, Cowboys and United States cavalrymen, all in their picturesque attire and blending in a picture of peculiar fascination Historic episodes of other days upon the American frontier will be repro duced by men who have "lived the life and the Cossacks and Cowboys will vie in friendly rivalry and present feats of equitation which will fitly show their skill in horsemanship.
