Chicago, July 4.—Arrivals are run ning far above the customary limited receipts for the first week in July, but fortunate a good portion of the arriv als consists of horses consigned through to eastern points. Demand here is possibly a little better than usual the week of July 4, as the fact that auctions would be held attract ed a few buyers, but the supply of com mon and medium horses is far in ex cess of the n^eds of the trade and all such are moving very slowly. Auction sales have been held and a portion of the offerings of this 'class found out let, but retaillfi along the line is prac tically at a stj mdstill, with the excep tloo of some 0 emand for the very few good big chu| ks and drafters, which raeldant buvai for aactarn markets «k CLOTHING CO. have taken at last week's prices. For the balance of the week very meager receipts are anticipated, and even few er buyers for them than have been here thus far this week.

BLOOMFIELD. -f Bloomfleld, July 4.—The hour spent with the Junior leaguers In the M. E. auditorium on Monday evening was one of pure delight, and the sweet, unaffected manner in which the little folks played their part was very re freshing. A vocal solo by Miss Hazel Wishard, Introduced the program, which was one of the best ever given by the children. Every number was so well presented that it seemed well worth the admittance, but the appear ance of the little housekeepers, by the tiny tots in which Dorothy Rominger of Long Branch, Cal., was a leading spirit, was particularly pleasing, and made a very happy hit with the audi ence. The flag drill by the boys, the fan drill by the girls, the songs, the school of sparrows, the recitations, all combined in making the children's en tertainment more attractive than many given b" the seniors. The illustrated story by I'asters Craig Sheaffer and Vincent Sanders, was very cleverly presented, and the pig which eventual ly appeared on the blackboard, was very realistic. The crowning feature of the whole was the operetta, the rival flowers, in which Miss Marie Selman as the rose, prettily accepted the homage, which the cowslip, the daisy, the violet, the carnation and the pan sy paid to their beautiful queen. Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Niblack left Tuesday for Moulton to spend the Fourth with the Mr. Niblack's mother.

All classes of market horses 011 Friday, and a lot of big Montana horses on Saturday. And right here I want to say a word about this proposition of buying Mon tana horses. To begin with, I will state that the lot we sold last week did not leave us any margin of profit, nor did they lose us any money, but the ob ject we have In view is to stock the country with a class of horses we can sell for you again next fall and winter, and in that manner get our profit out of them. We sell them on six months' time, and before the notes are due you can have them back here In the mar ket and sell them for a good profit. Prices on these western horses sold at our last sale, ranged from $70 to $112.50, so you may Judge they were a pretty fair lot. One party, who bought a pair of big boned 3-year-old colts of us in the auction last Friday at $157.50, has sold them already at $200. Several others who bought the good kind, have been offered $10 to $15 per head advance on them.
