Re ceipts were C500 head, one fourth a normal September Monday supply, and one-half as many as were expected, but a liberal supply is looked for later in the week, Stockers and feeders sold 10 to 25-kigher, Beef Cattle Nobody risked any prime cat tle for today's market although as things are now shaped the the eleven dollar quotation is effective on the right kind. Grass steers got feeder compe tition up to 7.50 today, and middle class grassers sold at 7.15 to 7.G5. Good wintered steers experienced some slow ness, and disagreement as to values promises to carry some cattle over. Sales in this class were made at 8 00 to 8.75. Southern Kansas and Oklahoma steers sold at 6.25 to 7.25, and 11 loads of Utah steers weigh ing 995 lbs. sold to killer at 7.00. Order buyers were unhampered today, and took a good many cattle. Cows' sold up to 7.00, good Idaho co ws at 6.40, med ium grass cows at 5.50 to 6-00. Stockers anp Feeders. Not many outside buyers were hre, but yard traders were active and paid higher prices, taking grass steers in competition with killers up to 7.50. The range supply was very light, but good to choice yearlings would have found quick sale at 25 higher prices, plain cattle steady to strong. Best yearlings aio worth up to 8.25, bulk of stock steers 6.25 to 7.00, feeders 6 75 to 7.75, with occasional demand for flsshy steers up to 8.25. Hogs . Prices were unevenly higher. some hogs held from Saturday bringing an advance of 35 cents. Most of the sales were 15 to 25 higher, with a iopof 10.80, re ceipts less than 4000 head. Order buyers led, paying the top price for middle weight hogs, and 10.75 for lights, but packers stopped at 10.70. The small supply, of course limited quality, as well as prevented the demand from extending itself The situation is very strong, as stocks of product show a snsa tional decrease for August, and supplies of Jive hogs are running lighter than in recent weeks.

JONES & CO. 3XM A few days ago a man applied to us for a loan, "who ha3 lived within fifteen miles of Kenna for over a year but has kept his deposit in an t astern town where he formerly lived. We suggested that he float his loan with his Eastern bank, but he said they declined to make the loan because he had moved out of the . state. We also declined making the loan because he was a strang er to us so far as his ability and integrity wasconcerned. A few day later a stranger came in the bank, in troduced himself stating that he was locating near Ken na and WAS going to make this his trading point, and wanted to move his bank account from his former loca tion to this bank, and it was plain to 6ee that he had some business judgement and meant to make the inter ests of the country his interests by getting acquainted at once and enhancing the value of his own property by patronizing and helping to build up the local institutions; these are the kiud of men that are going to make a suc cesB because they throw in with their adopted commun ity soul and body, and the HOME BANK, Not the bank back East will back them to the very limit, and in any way that is consistent with sound banking business. Come in and give us a trial, we will treat you right if wo know how. . THE KENNA BANK & TRUST CO. ifi3ff X2lS3RWEE52!& & ESS OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAVING MONEY On Groceries. Dry Goods.
