Tedford, n etockman rf Iiandolph county, gives it nt his opinion that the good prices of fat cattle will by maintained, on account of the scarcity of feed. On the con trary, ato'.'k cuttl. will not advance for the same reason. Fat hogs are up in pric nnd will remain so for some time, us there is not corn enough to be ha i at a reasonable prica to fatten any more hogs.
