- 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

A Violent Attack of Croup
"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.

harmful substance and may be
given as confidently to a baby
as to an adult. For sale by t he

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.

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
