Your Business Solicited. Kansas City Stock Report. Kansas City Stock Yards November 11, 1!)01 - Cattle receipts during the iast week have been only moderate nml with tin exception of stoockers find com innn feeders all kinds of cattle have been In active demand. There was a noticeable falling off in the receipts of cull lots of range cows during the past week and all grades of cows were wanted nt prices that ranged from steady to 20 cents higher as compared with the prevnling values of the week before. The highest ad vance secured was on stock cows and hlcfcrs the best heifer calves hav ing sold at all the way from 4..10 up to 5.80. The best offerings of feeders hoIu up to 4.-10 and all good lots were readily disposed of at satisfac tory prices, but there was littlle de mand for the commoner grades and local dealers accumulated some Hold ings that they were obliged to carry over the end of the week. Corn fed cattle and desireable grass beeves sold well although the former showed a weaker tendency towards the clone of the week. The top price for the week was reached on Tues day when ajot of i:!771b natives brought (i.GO, and while there are no toppy gras.s'.-rs offered, competent Halesmen quoted them as worth .".00. The lirst fed steers of the winter were received in the Southern yards and consisted of four loads of the A. (. l'annill cattle from Kaufman, Tex as, 2 loads of which averaged Oilllbs nnd 8old,nt at 4.50 and 2 loads 10(54 lbs that realized 4.(55. llange cattle were well received and sold generally at 3.08 to 4.00 and 50 to (10 cents high er than at the low time in October. The poorest of the Southern cows sold at 1.75 to 2.25 and fair to good lots at 2.40 to 3.00 There was little change in the hog market dating the week and the closiug prices were about iiko those of the previous week. Theeonsensus of .opinion Is that there will be little if any greater reduction in hog val ues for some time to come nnd that there need be no fear of not receiving remunerative prices for hogs fed on high priced grain. The best heavy hogs sell at 5.90 to 6.00; mixed and medium weights at 5.70 to5.90; lights at 5.25 to 5.S0 and desireable pigs at Our Mr. Donaldson is at home after buying the largest stock ever brought to the Plains WE.

"Last winter an infant child of mine had croup in a violent form, " says Eider John W. Rog ers, a Christian Evangelist, of Pille', Mo. "I gave her a few doses of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and in a short time all danger was past aud the child recovered." This remedy not only cures croup, but when giv en as soon as the first symptoms appear, will prevent the attack. It contains no opium or other harmful substance and may be given as confidently to a baby as to an adult. For sale by t he iadley Drug Company, the Leading Druggists. The valedictory of brother Alf. V. Collier, of the Trinity Valley Herald, Bridgeport, Texas, strikes a respon sive chord and tender spot In our heart.

Messrs. E. G. Knight, E. Brooks and others, are now in Kansas City with a few car loads of fat cows and others will follow the later part of this week. Health of the country gener ally is exceptionally good, I be lieve, better than the writer has seen in over two years residence on the Plains. A singular combination of singing and writing school be gins this morning at Fairyiew school house (Rowan school house) taught by Rev. Mr. Chambers, of Scurry county, who seems to be the right man and gives full satisfaction in his line and we understand that nearly all of the young ladies and gentlemen for quite a distance around with smaller fry thrown in are going to attend.

The Stayer made its way to our little home last evening, laden with encouraging words from the'eousins all along the line. It is cheering news to get word that all is right with the cousins and one by one is added to represent his community. This is right. Why live to yourself and keep all the good things in the back ground or forever hidden from view. We can say things and do things that cost us but little and be glad tidings to some weary soul in some remote corner of crea tion. Just look for instance what that good clever "Jasper" has done for me, to make my heart leap for joy, pictured a nice little home with a beautiful dishwasher. Home, that name touches every fiber ot the soul and strikes every chord of the human heart with its angelic fingers.. Some years ago twen ty thousand people gathered in old Castle Garden, New York, to hear Jennie Lind sing as no other songstress ever had sung the sublime compositions of Be 1 bo ven Howell & Co. At length the Sweedish Nightingale thought of her home, paused and seemed to fold her wings for a higher flight, she began with deep emotion to pour forth Home, Sweet Home. The audi ence could not stand it. An up roar of applause stopped the music and tears gushed from those thousands like rain. Be thoven and Howell were forgot ten and after a moment the song came again, seemingly, as from heaven, almost angelic. "Jas per" has been a Jennie Lind to me in describing or representing X. T. Z's. new home and the sweet ladj' who decides to make that home angelic or otherwise. Cousins come on with your mite of good words and tell them through The Stayer that they may be gather up and bring forth much fruit. The news items in our commu nity are not very exciting this week.

Hay baling in the neighbor hood is in full blast by Mr. Blanton, from Armstrong coun ty, who has the reputatiou of turning out more bales per week than any other man who has been among us. ' . The gentleman who bought out neighbor Lef trich is now lo cated in his stead, whose name is Chancelor, seemingly, a very clever bachelor and I would suppose him to be of the age of twenty or thirty years. We gave him a very cordial greeting but intimated in a quiet way that single blessedness was not to be continued as selfishness had been abandoned on the Plains. We would advise our sister country cousins to look out for this young heir as he tells us he ouly requires a little time that he may make his selection. J. W. Prunty, late of Plain view, has located in Amarillo and he aud his good wife have been spending a few days with Dr. Cartwrigbt's family on the ranch. Mr. Kilburu, M. S.

Grandpa and grandma Ste vens will spend the winter in Amarillo as Dr. Cartwright and family leave for South-west Texas in a few weeks to spend the winter on the Rio Grande river.

Give him a trial and be pleased at the results. tf Last Saturday Mr. II. E. Rog erson, well known as one of the most enterprising, whole-souled and generous hearted gentlemen that ever lived in this country, gave a magnificent dinner at the Rogerson Hotel to many of his friends. It was the pleasure of the publisher to enjoy the feast, (the editor being absent.) The meal was properly cooked and nicely served and it was a feast for a large number of people. Uncle Frank Lester and the publisher of The Stayer after eating a full shareof fruits, veg etables and turkey, turned their attention to a large coa-coa nut cake about 12 inches across and five inches thick, and when they were ready to leave the table there was less than half of it left. Of coarse, Uncle Frank says the publisher ate it, and promises to have a special cake baking for the purpose of filling him up, but we will leave it to the public ito decide whether Uncle Frank has the appearance of one whOW':il sit idly by and Dn.
