THE COCONINO SUN FRIDAY, JULY 11, 191$. KANSAS CITY WEEKLY STOCK MARKET REPORT KANSAS CITY STOCK YARDS, July 8. Cattle, hog and sheep prices were higher today. This is the first time in a good many months past when all classes of meat animals took on higher prices at the same time. The advance is due to increasing de mand for meat. Cattle were up 25 cents, hogs up 16 cents to 25 cents to a new high record position at $22.00, and sheep were a big quarter higher. All offerings cleared readily. Today's Receipts Today's receipts were light in all departments. The decrease is attrib uted to the rush of harvest sagging prices late in June, and the belif that the market has passed the low-price level of the season. Cattle receipts today were 7,500, or 2,500 less than a week ago, 12,000 less than a year ago. Hog receipts were 11,000, or 4,000 less than a week ago, and 1,500 larger than a year ago. Sheep 4,000 or 10,000 less than a week ago, and 500 larger than n year ago. Urgent Call for Beef Cattle There was an urgent call for beef cattle, and with receipts below expec tations prices weie a good quarter higher, extremes up 35 cents. Six carloads of Utah steers sold at $14.70, and native steers sold mostly at $11.50 to $14.75. Cows and heifers advanced as much as fat steers. Cows brought $7.00 to $11.50 and heifers $8.00 to i9Kn Vonrlinc stpprs and steers and heifers mixed brought $10.50 to $14.25. The general position of the market is the first general advanco that has occurred in the past two months. Stockers and Feeders Trade in stockers and feeders was active at 15 to 25 cents higher prices. Small receipts limited demand to the more urgent orders. It is the general opinion that receipts of thin cattle will show a material increase in the next few weeks. Feeders are quoted at $9.00 to $13.00, and stockers $8.50 to $12.00. Hogs Still Going Up Kansas City was the first Missouri river market to record a $22 price tna nnrl tlinf wnq nnirl todav bv packers on a 15 to 25 cent higher market than last week. The bulk of the hogs brought $21.C0 to $21.90. This is the period of the year when light receipts usually prevail, the prices arc expected to remain high. Choice 190 to 200 pound hogs are the kind bringing top prices, though the price spread is unusually small for this season of the year. Sheep and Lambs Some Higher Light receipts lifted sheep and lamb prices 25 cents today. Trade was active. Lambs arc quoted at $14.50 to $16.50, clippc1 wethers $8.50 to $9.50, and ewes $7. to $8.25. Light receipts keeps trading in thin lambs to small proportions. CHAS. M. PIPKIN, Market Correspondent. ANNOUNCEMENT For a number of years the National Tuberculosis Association has conduct ed an annual national conference of tuberculosis workers. This has been productive of much good; but the dis tances necessary to be traversed to attend these conferences, the expense involved, and the time consumed, have combined to make it possible for only a comparatively small number of workers to attend. Within the last year or two the United States has been divided into several smaller "con ferences," each of which has its own annual meeting in addition to the big national meeting. Arizona belongs to the Southwest em Conference. The meeting of this conference for this year has already been announced for September 23, 24, and 25, but in order to secure some exceptional speakers, the date has been changed to October 1, 2, and 3. The "place of meeting is Long Beach, California. Are you interested in the prcevntion and cure of tuberculosis? You are invited to attend this conference. If you are not interested, you are urged to attend so that you may become familiar with the work and thus be come interested in the great crusade.

The leports were verified Monday afteimoon by the filing of about sixty gioup claims by Bod Adams "relocating the government land in township 15 north, Jange 19 cast. This land was briginally lo cated in the spring of 1918 by vari ous people, some of it having been transferred to other parties. One of the sections jumped belongs to the Adamana Oil & Land Co., and is near the well of that company now being drilled. Another section belongs to A. B. Baird, geologist, who claims that the assessment woik for this year ha ahcady been done on it. A meeting was called at the court house Monday evening under the auspices of the Holbrook Chamber of Mines and Oils to inquire into the matter. After some discussion and the facts obtainable were presented to the meeting a committee was ap pointed to wait on Bob Adams and invite him to the meeting with a view to obtaining an explanation, of his po sition in the piemises. A search of the town was made by the committee and a report returned that Mr. Adams could not be found. More discussiomfollowed and some of the members oY the chamber who had talked to him lclativc to the matter stated that Mr. Adams claimed that the locations as originally made were not legal, but to show that he was willing to do the right thing he would deed back part of each section jumped. This proposition did not seem to sat isfy the meeting as it was the con census of opinion that if the original locators were entitled to any of the land they were entitled to all of it. Snowflake Herald. IS WORLD'S LARGEST PIG Modestly answering to the name of "The Great Wonder I Am," there lives and flourishes one mile west of Algona, Iowa, the biggest pig in the world. Because the pig measures seven feet from the end of its nose to the end of its tail, and while as it now weighs 1,100 pounds, this big claim has never been disputed. The owner, James Vipond, though he bought the animal several years ago for $725, has refused one offer of $26,000 and says he could not allow to sell it for $50,000. In spite of the notoriety this pig has attained, it still remains a good, old-fashioned animal. It doesn't go in for these new fanglcd things, such H3 serums and baths and blue ribbons. Its owner fondly believes it could have all the blue ribbons going, but "The Great Wonder I Am" does not care for traveling and has never been ex hibited at a single fair or show. But there is hardly a day goes by that some visitors do not call to see this priceless treasure. OVER THE BRITISHER'S HEAD One thing which delighted Rear Ad miral William S. Sims on his stay in England in charge of the American overseas fleet was the English sense of humor. He illustrated it in this story, which he told at a luncheon in New York City recently. i Admiral Sims was buying a shirt .'n one of the exclusive Fleet Street shops and the storekeeper must tell of the other distinguished people whom he served. "There was the King of Spain, the King of Greece, the King of Italy, and the Sultan of Turkey, they all bought shirts from .he." "So," said the admiral in his Ameri can way, "the sultan must be wearing an asbestos shirt now?" "Indeed," replied the shopkeeper, leaning over the counter as one losing out to a rival shirtmaker, "why should he be wearing 'an asbestos shirt?" KNEW THE STORY A man and his wife visited the Louvre in Paris. "What struck you most at the Lou vre?" asked one of his friends when they returned home. "Oh," replied the husband, "a pic ture which represented Adam and Eve with the apple and the serpent." And his excellent wife chimed in: "Yes, we found that very interest ing, because, you see, we knew the anecdote." o A PIECE OF STRATEGY "Every spring when I have my an nual house cleaning, Mr. Frisby is called out of the city on important business," remarked Mrs. Frisby. "I consider that an odd coincidence." "I Uon't," said Mrs. Jlbway. "No?" "It looks to me like a piece of strategy." o HOORAY! Though your thirst hurts, Cheer up and smile; For See-More Skirts Are now in style. . o INTERMITTENT Lady (to applicant for positjon as gardener): "You are, oi course, sinci ly sober?" Applicant: "Yes, mum, often." rr i-o : SKEPTICS Some people are so skeptical con cerning its claims that they call it the "League of Halluci-nations." o Mrs. Exe: "So you and your hus band have separated because of a mis understanding?" Mrs. Wye: "Not at all, my dear. We parted because we understood each other only too well." . -o A cloudburst accompanied by a young hurricane did considerable damage in Douglas, Ariz., July 1. o If you want to sell anything, just try an "ad" in ine sun, anu xnen watch things move.

LONDON TRIES MOTOR BUSES The first lorry omnibus was seen in London the other day. Fitted to carry 27 persons, it was painted a bright green, but with the war office mark still to be seen on either side. Seats had been arranged crosswise in side the lorry, and strong stairs were placed at the back. The conductor or conductress will be accommodated at the top of the steps. In an interview. Manager Blaine of the Underground Electric Railways and the London General Omnibus Co., said arrangements had been made which will materially quicken the im provement in traffic facilities. Before the war there was an average of 1 about 2.500 omnibuses in daily service in the London district. There were now actually in service 2,200, and these were being added to daily, among the latest acquisitions being some chars-a-bancs recovered from the stores at Kempton Paik. Mr. Blaine added that the first twenty-five of the motor lorries which the government has agreed to supply to the company, pending the construe-' tion of more permanent vehicles, were to be delivered at once. The lorries would run on the same lines as ordi nary omnibuses, and at the same fare. o Wonderfully large results from a wonderfully small Want-Ad in The Sun is the verdict of whose who have tested it.

This is not true and the part of the mother is to reduce the scourge of children's diseases to the minimum. Surely no one of today believes that a child should be made to carry the burden of deafness, weak lungs, poor teeth, impaircd.eye-sight, etc., the at tendant features of "childrens' dis eases" throughout his life. Measles, whooping cough, scarlet fever, diph theria and the like leave one or sev eral of these weaknesses in their wake. The prevalence of these dis eases every year, as shown by health board reports proves conclusively that mothers are not doing their part to eliminate these scourges of childhood. Epidemics of these diseases can nearly always be prevented by the ap plication of simple rules of health. The Arizona Anti-Tuberculosis As sociation will be glad to tell the good mothers of Arizona where they can secure reliable information through these health rules to help them rear their children to be well and strong. A sound body and a clear mind are the birthrieht of every child. It is the mother's part to see to it that her child is not deprived of his birthright.
