October 28, 1001 , Hog receipt were consld- Durlng the pout week the great American Royal cattle show and sale tins been in progress and both as a dhtplay of Hereford, Shorthorn and Galloway royalty and an attraction to visitors has far surpassed any pre vious event of the kind ever attend ed. The weather has been Ideal, and with the perfectly appointed barns, show tent and sule pavilion there was nothing to mar the success of the undertaking or retard the execu tion of the program. From mld fnrenoon until dusk the 300x125 feet show tent, the two and a quarter acre barn, the pavilion with a capac ity for housing 200 cattle and con taining an ainpltheatre with seal for ,1000 people, and the streets adja cent were tilled with a mass of mov ing people who Inspected everything from the obscure nurse-cows to the ribbon liedecked winners of many prise. The top price at the Shorthorn sale was f 1850.00 for Inglewood, a two-year-old Cruikshank bull, and the average price paid for 12 Shorthorn bulls was $477.01. Thirty-eight Shorthorn cows sold at an average of 9292.36 and the general average for the 50 head of Shorthorns was if 338.90 or, 20.00 higher than last year. There was 135 Herefords offered at the sale, the general average having been 1253.25. The females numbered 92 head and averaged $ 257.55, while the 43 bulls which made up the re mainder of the offerings realized $244.06 each. The Hereford averages fell lelov the last year's mark but this was due to the fact that the se lections for the sale were made more with a view to giving the average cattle breeder and farmer something that will increase the value of his herd than with the idea of an ex change of blood between the thor oughbred producers. The highest price Hereford bull sold was South Ington 111,703 of the K. B. Armour estate herd, and the top price for a Hereford cow was $620.00 for Pits burg Maid ST?,55. Southtngton brought $1005.00, and was taken by Wm. Humphrey, of Ashland, Nebras ka, while Pltsbnrg Maid went to Marshall Field, of Chicago. In the Galloway sale, 22 bulls averaged $144.08 and 13 females went at $117,31 or at an average of $134.14 for the 35 head offered. Some of the Galloways were In good show condition and Imported Wolfel, a prlte winning aged bull, brought $600.00 but as a rule the Galloways were not at their best, the bulk of the offerings consist ing of only fairly pedigreed stock and not In good flesh. The top price on Galloway females was $200.00 for Lady of the Lake and calf. The dressed beef cattle market dur ing the post week reached about as high a point as has been touched this year. The top beeves brought 6.50 and the demand was so great that one packing establishment brought a train of 16 cars, from Chi cago towards the last of the week There was a heavy run of range cows and values settled slightly, ruling probably 10 to 200 below the bulk of the week before. The decline on de sirable feeders was checked but the common stockers and feeders of Infe rior quality were slow and lower. Southern receipts amounted to about 9000 cattle and 1300 calves and consisted largely of very common cows many of which sold under 2.00. The better grades of Southern cows brought 2.25 to 2.90 and a few scat tering Bales ot prime fed cows sold at a no ta 3.75. K teer qualities were erably auguroented as consignments from Eastern territory had been at tracted by the higher prices that had ruled at Kansas City for some weeks. Values declined 30 to 40? during the week but still range 1.25 to 1.60 above last year. Heavy hogs are worth 6.10 to 6.20; mixed packers and medium hogs 5.75 to 6.10; lights 5.30 to 6.00 and desirable pigs 4.65 to 5.40. The sheep supply was liberal but hardly sufficient for the demand. Prices were higher from the start and native lambs sold up to 4.75. Western lambs sold at 3.75 to 4.60 and Western Wethers at 3.25 to 3.75. Stockers and feeders were In small supply nnd remained about steady.
