The Childrens Corner
The Swineherd Andersen.
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
, "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
, 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
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
"I will have ten kisses from the Princess," said the
" "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
"Then you can whisper it. So the lady, whispered it.

gain. "One must encourage art" said she; "I am the
Emperors daughter. 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
"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.

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.

Most of the other steers sold

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.
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.
