The Childrens Corner The Swineherd Andersen. KANSAS CITY STOCK MARKET THE UNIVERSAL CAR Continued from last week. "How much the bird reminds me of the musical box that belonged to our blessed Emnress!" remarked an old Knight. "Ah yes! it is the very same tone, the same ex ecution." "Yes! Yes!" said the Emperor, and he wept like a little child. "I will still hope that it is not a real bird" said the Princess. , "Yet it is a real bird?" said those who had brought it. "Well, then let the bird fly," returned the Princess; and she positively refused to see the Prince, However, he was not to be discouraged; he daubed' bis face over brown and black; pulled his cap over his ears, and knocked at the door. "Good day, Emperor!" said he. "can I have employ ment athe pálace?" "0 there are so many that want a place," said the Emperor; "well, let me see, J want some one to take care of the pigs, for wa have a great many of them." !s. ' So the Prince was appointed Imperial Swineherd. He had a dirty little room close by the pig-sty; and there he sat the whole day, and worked. By the evening, he had made a pretty little saucepan. ' Little bells were hung all around it; and when the pot was boiling, these bells tinkled in the most charming manner, and played the old melody;- , Ah, thou dearest Augustine All is gone, gone, gone. ' But what was still more curious, whoever held his finger in the smoke of this saucepan, immediately smelt all the dishes that were cooking on every hearth in the city: this you see; was something quite different from the rose. Now the Princess happened to walk that way; and when she heard the tune, she stood quite still and seem ed pleased; for she could play Dearest Augustine, it was the only piece she knew, and she could only play it with one finger. "Why there is my piece" said the Princess; "That Swineherd must certainly have been well educated. Here! go in ask him the price of the instrument." ' And so one of the ladies must run in; however she drew on wooden slippers first. "What will you take for the saucepan?" inquired the lady. "I will have ten kisses from the Princess," said the Swineherd. " "Mercy on us!" said the lady. "Yes, I cannot sell it for less," said the Swineherd. ' iz, . hat does he say?" asked the Princess. "I cannot tell you really," replied the lady "it is too bad." "Then you can whisper it. So the lady, whispered it.

Tell him, he shall, as on yesterday, have ten kisses from me, and. may take the rest from the ladies of the court." - "Oh, but we should not like that at all" said the court ladies. "What are you muttering?" asked the Princess, "if I can kiss him surely you can." Remember, I give you your food and wages." So the court ladies were obliged to go to him again. "A hundred kisses from the Princess' else let everyone keep his own' "Stand round." said she; and all the ladies stood round her while the kissing was going on. . "What can be the reason for such a crowd close by the pig - sty?" said the Emperor, who happened just then to step out on the balcony. He rubbed rubbed his eyes and Dut on his spectacles. "There are the ladies of the court; there must be some, play going on. I must go down and see what thev are about." So he pulled up his slippers at the heel, for he had trodden them down. Heh there! what a hurry he was in. As soon as ne got in tne courtyard, ne moved very softly, and the ladies were much engrossed with count ing kisses, that all might go on fairly, that they did not percieve the Emperor. He rose on his tiptoes.

The Swineherd - that is to say the Prince, for no one knew that he was other than an illfavoured swineherd -let not a day pass without working at something; he at last constructed a rattle, which, when it was swung round, played all the waltzes and jig tunes which have ever been heard since the creation of the world. "Ah, that is 3uperbe! said the Princess when she passed by; "I have never heard prettier compositions. Go In and ask him the price of the instrument; but I won't kissed."

REES CAFE Live Stock Trade Strong er, Good Advance in Hogs Packing house employees late ist week decided to ac cept a wage reduction of 5 to 10 par cent without a strike. Today receipts were ight for this season of the year, and with ihursaay, ThanKsgiving holiday, sup plies for the week will be be- ow requirements. These conditions improved demand materially andx the 'market ruled strong to higher. Cat- tie were strong to 2o cents higher, hogs up 15 to 25 cents and lambs strong to 15 cents higher. Today's Receipts Receipts today were 12,- 000 cattle, 8000 hogs, and 4500 sheep, compared with 23,000 cattle, 8000 hogs, and 6000 sheep a week ago, and 15,300 cattle, 15,750 hogs, and 16,300 sheep a year ago Beef Cattle Cattle receipts today were about half those a week 'ago, and 3000 less than a. year ago. At the same time qua lity of the fat cattle was the plainest of the season. Kill ers were in the pens early and bought freely as long as there were1 any steers that carried fat. Prices ruled strong to 25 cents higher, ; exceptions more. Some 13 00 pound, steers, "warmed up" from grass, brought $7. 00 and were the best offered. Most of the other steers sold at $5. 50 to $6. 75. Cows and i :j? i 3 i i. 1.1 s neuers snoweu auuut uie J same advance as steers, and were m active demand. Cal ves were 25 to 50 cents high er, and bulls up 25 cents. Stockers and Feeders Today's light receipts of thin cattle forced country buyers who have been wait ing tor lower prices into an active trade and prices rose 15 to 25 cents. Indications are that the big runs of stock ers and teeders are near an end for this year. On the other hand a large number of thin cattle are needed to take care of feed. Hogs Hog prices today were up 15 to 25 cents, mostly 15 to 20 cents. Early, last week it looked' as though packers would succeed in in reduc ing hog prices to the 6 cent level, but receipts are not holding up to expectations and demand continues large. Today the top price, $7.00, was paid for light lights and the bulk of the offerings sold at $6.60 to $6.90, packer top $6. yo. Figs sold up to $7. 50. Sheep and Lambs A Ewes sold at 3.35 to $4.- OOánd native lambs at $8. 50 to 9.00: The market was quoted strong to 25 cents higher. Trade was active., Feeding lambs are scarce and in urgent demand. .
