slumpy cattle market after
Wednesday last week. Sales
men who had no cattle after
Wednesday called the maket
today steady to lower, while
those who had cattle here
Thursday and Friday called to
day's market strong to 15 high

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.
. 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.

We payHhe highest prices for your produce.
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. .
