market for the week ended Friday, De
cember 27th were : 788 cattle, 32 calves,
848 bogs, 37 sheep and 2 horses and
mules, totaling 31 carloads.
The week just ended was one of the
lightest for all classes of live stock in
many months past. The light movement
of live stock was brought on, no doubt,
by tlje Christmas holiday which, like
other years, always affects shipping. The
prices of cattle began to advance the
early part of the week and each day's
sales was an improvement over the prev
ious day's trading. Good steers seem
very scarce and hut very few are being
offered. The cow stuff is mostly plain
but arc selling readily at extremely
strong prices. The bulk of canners for
the week met sale at 5c. Advanced

The hog market was strong all during

equal to cattle. The hulk of the early

noted and a- firm market exists with
