BULL ATTACKS MOTOR: TEARS OFF FENDERS; GIVES DRIVER SCARE A Happy arid Prosperous New Year Is Our Wish to All Our. Friends ; and' Patrons.'- " ' PRESCOTT, Dec. 20. The. terrors of metering in Yavapai county are not confined to rough and muddy roads, according to a traveler who Monday night drove from Ash Fork to Prescott by the way of Pnntenrujy. but include the dangers of being at tacked by wild animals. Leaving Ash Fork in the early evening, this Prescott-bcund traveler said that he reached the Puntenney country about 8 o'clock, when it was dark, and was driving.rather slowly for that, reason. Alone side of the road, a short distance ahead of him, he saw what he supposed to be a cow and paid no particular attention to it. As he approached the animal and was about 30 feet from it. he saw it lower its head and the next in stant felt a Jar that nearly threw the car, which was a roadster, over rt-n ita airla The attacking animal was a bull which had charged the side of the machine.' .wrecking the fender and mudguard'on one side but otherwise not iniurnie the machine. Not waiting to see whether or. not the bull had been hurt by his assault the motorist "stepped on the gas," he said, and came to Prescott. STATE ANTICIPATION BONDS ARE REDEEMED LOS ANKLES MART TOPS OTHERS OU GUTTLE PRICES This is the hardest market- infor mation letter I ever tried- to write, for I can't understand prices-., nor forecast tendencies. Prices have no relation apparently to the- .same cost .of an animal F.' - O. ' B. - range through ' the southwest, nor what the producer expects for it. '.- Many men are not giving credit to the stalwart endeavor of the Los: Angeles market to secure'- better prices, and probably' no market that was ever' established faced a .harder opposition -than "the"fight- being, made. against stockyards by certain groups! of larger cattleman.- . I receive F. O. B. California prices to come " to the range and buy at 61 to-. 6.50' for fat steers." Packers have not -been able- to- withstand tempta tion' and' -while -the market for choice steers stay 8 to -8.50 on'paper haven't seen but few of them lately -as the run. was medium "-around 7.50. Calves are a glut: Light common-; 'steers bring around 5 cents. Ordinary 800 pounds Texas three's sold today one load at 5, some 1000 pound Utahs; V believe, -at 5.J5 ' weanling steer carves around 400 pound held over at 5.25. Cows light or heavy look to me stronger by 50 cents on the 5.50 to 6 price and my -idea' is a light fat cow-would sell almost a cent better than . three weeks ago or arorind 5 cents. While - they seem .scarce so did fat steers and so did heavy feed ers and : so did calves at 'different periods. .Men who Tcnow the . clas sing of other markets claim the Los Angeles market is topping the others' on identical quality. It seems to -me the opposition to the stockyards is causing lower prices. rather .than the stockyards, . tor us the outside beef offers that have affected beef prices, if they are af fected, and many claim they ate as strong -as ever . on. anything choice, and its .certainly the,. virtual black listing accorded, stockyards ' that keeps many California men off of it when they have lush grass, compara tively better beef prices, and actual ly prices cheaper, on many jjades than they could buy F. Q. B. range and ship in for. Again on a rising market producers generally get bet ter than, expected and with . all cat tle low, a producer may get less than he expects. . - A. L. SPELLMEYER.
