Bears the Signature of LARGE NUMBER OF HORSES SOLD MARKET ON THE DECLINE THOUGH PRICES ARE STEADY. From Monday's Daily. The horse situation looms up a trifle more encouraging as viewed by the sharp bidding and activity among the horsemen at Morris Williams' sale. The prices were maintained and a good sale was the result. The number of buyers rather than the number of horses characterize the sale, as an unusually large num ber ol' buyers were on hand and kept up a sharp fire of bidding that resulted in the best sale since the market went "off" two months ago and notwith standing that the conditions in the other horse markets fail to snow up in as favorable light as here. Bidding Active. While the bidding was active the prices were Ann and steady and would show a falling off from the sales of two months ago of probably $50 on certain classes of horses. Horses bought prior to November when the market was excellent, and held by feeders are the class alluded to above.1 Few of the high class horses were in evidence Friday and while a good ly number were sold, about 85 in an, they were made up of business chunks, farm animals and southern horses. When summed up the sale was very good for a declining market and the number handled exceeded the former sale by a few head. The fol lowing were among the buyers from out of the city: Many Buyers Here. Ed. Grant, Chicago Ed. Lynch, Chi cago William Abel, Kirkland, 111. Elmer Winslow, Buffalo, N. Y. H. E.

Wapello count's progressive farm ers are already laying plans for next summer's corn growing contest, and the announcement is made that the Ottumwa Brick and Construction com pany will,again offer valuable pren. iums in the next contest to farmers raising the most corn on ten acres of tiled land. The record for 1907 was 108 bushels to the acre and the an nouncement is.made that 120 bushels is the go.ai set. for this year and that at least 100 farmers are wanted to en ter the contest and to raise 1,000 bushels on ten acres of land each.

Marshall Mich, Country Nine-tenths of our farmers are holding for the spring trade. Horses which under ordinary market condi tions should be Tolng to market now, are being held for the expected ad vance. Here are the figures: The govern ment report shows a total increase in the horse supply of over one million. Last year's mraket re port shows the demand for market horses fell off 100.000 head from the demand of 1906. In other words 100, 000 horses remained In the country. Horses dropped one-fourth in value during the fall, and yet we find even at this great decline that the market demand at Chicago alone took "1,500 head less the first week of this year and 1,000 head less the second week than It did a year ago. That means 2.500 head more added to the 100,000 left over from last year. Now, my Idea Is that due to the pre vailing opinion among farmers that there will be an advance in the spring and their refusal to sell at the present market prices, the surplus in the country will steadily increase until such time as they believe this advance is due. When that time arrives, and the advance fails to put in its ap pearance, I look for a heavy market ing of horses and a consequent decline in prices. No, sir! I hope I may be wrong, but my candid opinion Is that Riqht Now is the time to get busy and keep busy and that the man who waits for the spring advance will sell at a decline. I certainly would not advise any of our consignors to contract for any horses for future delivery. Buy only such horses as can be bought at the present market price and turn them into cash: then you run no risk of bein™ caught. As soon as the western and southern demand is over and we have to de pend upon the east for our market, "better look a lit.tl$ out." NEXT SALE FRIDAY, JAN. 24.

There are hundreds of cases of piles which have lasted for 20 or 30 years and have been cunred in a few days or weeks with the marvelous Pyramid Pile Cure.

It re lieves the swelling, stops the conges tion. heals the ulcers and fissures and the piles disappear. There is no form of piles which these little pyra mids are not made to cure. The Pyramid Pile Cure can be used detention from business. There is no case of piles so severe that the Pyra mid Pile Cure will not bring relief. We Pay Railroad St-'es. LIVELY AUCTION LAST FRIDAY. We had more horses and more buy ers at last Friday's sale than at any sale since "the late upheaval" or more correctly speaking, "downheaval," struck the business world. The en couraging feature of the sale was, not that prices had improved to any extent, but that the buyers seemed to want the horses at their present market value. My opinion is that right NOW is the time for ycu to get busy if you want to do any good handling horses on the market this winter. I believe we can ",®,ure on a fairly steady market for at least a couple of months to come. I do not look for any advance in prices, worth mentioning, but I do not believe there will be any considerable decline from the present market prices until the time for the, usual spring advance, and at that time, look for quite a drop In stead of an advance. Here are my reasons for thus believing: Fare $5.00 fnt* $2.50 and $2.75 grades pretty Astrachan, Bearskin, Plush and Cloth Coats, good assortment, popular colors.
