-j Common Stuff Neglected.
Stock Yards, Chicago, Nov. 2.—
Range steers made up biggest share
of beef cattle supplies and tound a
good packer/demand at firm rates,
while a scant crop of natives again
moved slowly at Monday's closing lev
els, sales shewing 10c decline from the
basis in force late last week. Of the
total run of 10,000 there were 5,000
western rangers, and biggest share of
corn belt marketings comprised feeder
steers and butcher stock. One drove of
fat native yearling steers sold at $6.86
and some other* at $8.75, but sales
were rarely above 16, while common
light grades went down to [email protected]
Best range** went at $6.25, with bulk
at $5."[email protected], while fat range heifers
cbmmanded 15.10^5.60.
She stock had a fair demand at
Monday's rates, medium to good
grades moving freely, but the common
stiiff was neglected. Bulls were also
dull sales while calves scored 25c gain,
prime grades making $l0£pl0.?5. A
broad eastern demand prevailed for
light stock steers, while near by terri
tory afforded outlet for a big crop of
feeders, both classes -holding at Mon
day's rates. Prices had the following
range:

Stock Yards. Chicago, Nov.- 2.—A
further break of 15® 20c hog prices
carried the average to $7.94, being low
est day since last November, $8.09 low
ef than high day last March. The
average Is only 19c' higher than cor-*
responding Tuesday a year ago. The
last two months of 1909 prices ad
vanced the best part of a dollar, but
from present Indications a break of
about that much is looked for during
the next thirty to sixty days. Re
ceipts for the day were estimated at
18,000 and 6,000 of the 22,500 fresh and
"stale" offerings remained In the pent?.
A few fancy light sold early at $8.65
and a load of 204 lb butchers at $8.621A,

Draft F**d*r* Firm.
Stock Yards, Chicago, Novi 2.—
Trade presents many of the feature*
which' characterized the market two
years ago, when country shippers
found it difficult to find buyer* that
would pay price* above country cost
The market Is featured with many un
classified horses which are difficult to
sell except at bargain prices. Good
draft feeders are In steady request by
Ohio and Pennsylvania dealers and
clear at $1660226 and upward. Prime
drafters, specially prepared for tbe
fall trade, are meeting with fair In
quiry at $2250276, with lower grades
clearing slower at $170 0 220. The dif
ference In the country cost and the
«ell!ng price of. the bulk of the horse
receipts Is too narrow to protect ship
pers on their Investments, and every
week many shippers complain of
losses. Small southerners are free sell
ers at $600 125, with orders in excess
of the receipts. Trade develops but few
new features, the receipts clearing at
the following auction prices
to orood. to extra.

Private Sale on Thursday.
EXTRA LARGE SALE NEXT WEEK.
That's my idea and I am going about
It to make next week's sale not only
extra large, but extra good.
Cooler weather will undoubtedly
stimulate the demand for coal wagon
horses, and for loggers for the north
ern trade, and this bumper corn crop
now past all danger of harm from frost
should and will give confidence to thei
buyers of big-boned feeding horses.
The southern demand continues
good, especially for small mares
weighing 950 to 1200 pounds, branded
or unbranded.
So I am going to "get busy" and
do a lot of advertising of the sale on
Friday the 11th. Bring on the .ftuff.
I'll have the lftiyers.
MORRIS WILLIAMS,®^^
Ottumwa, Iowa.
P. S. AIso( likewise, I want to say to
some of you farmers, I have 8 head of
yearling, coming* 2-year-old Allies, all
haltered and gentle, and I will sell
them singly or in a bunch, at a price
that 1 know will enable the buyer to
make plenty of money out of them.
These are nice clean Allies and .will
grow to mares weighing from 1000 to
l200» They may be seen at the sale
barn any day now. Prices $35 to $45
apd they will grow Into mares' worth
$l26 to $150. M,..H,.~"
