Texuika.ua, Jan. 23.—Discontinuance of the cattle dipping for tile eradica tion of ticks and the placing of all Miller county, (Ark.) under quaran tine again, has proven a heavy blow to cattle raisers, especially to those who have been raising beeves for market. Tt is said that the local butchers have taken advantage cf the inability ot the cattle raisers to 'ship their beeves and are offering only $3.50 to $4 per hundred pounds for good beef steers, while reselling the meat from their shops at from 20 cents to 40 cents a pound. It is said that sent© of the cat-tit' raisers are seriously considering a proposition to pool their interests and open shops of their own for the sale of their beef at retail. L. C. Adams, one of the largest cattle raisers in the county, said today that he expected within a short time to erect a build ing on property he owns near the Ar kansas side police station, in which h© will operate a meat market u ,'ng exclusively the product of his farms.
