Saturday .December, 20, 1913. Commercial Club Aggressive Winslow not only needs a commercial clnb, but an ag gressive commercial club in which all the members will take an active part. It should not be left to the secretarj alone to see every individual who might be interested in such an organization to creat< an interest and get things started, but every individual WHO IS INTERESTED IN SUCH AN ORGANIZA TION should get busy and stir up all the interest he pos sibly can. There is a great deal of talk about building roads out of Winslow and bunging the trade of the outlying districts to this city, and of getting the government land lying adjac ent to town thrown open for settlement etc., but just who is going to do all this if every business man in town don’t take an interest in completing the organization of a commer cial club? Should it be left to some individual? If so, who? Theie cannot be much ac complished by a group of in dividuals each working along seperate lines. What we need is an organization where all can come together and discuss the welfare of the community and voice its sentiments, and take the proper measures to develop its resources, If a commercial club ac complishad nothing except iL a social way it would well be worth the expeuse necessary to keep it up. A body of men cannot meet for the peaceable discussion of things in gener al that concern them tempor ally or permentally without each being greatly benefited therefrom, and as far as the expense go, if all who have the real advancement of the city at heart would become active members, they would be nothing,comparatively. A commercial club is an advanced form of municipal democracy wherein the reme dy for evils is applied before the evil exists, because meas ures are thoroughly discussed before an) 7 action is taken, and the spirit of each for all and all for each is engendered. Comes information from the United State- Department of Agriculture on how to kill a turkey,which ought to be of considerable value to those fortunate enough to own one. The information would be more appreciated though, if it told of some easy way of getting the said bird without taking too many chances on loosing one’s belt. Given the rurkev; and, most or us could fine. some some wav of killing it, and, if we were fortunate enough to oe married men no doubt our wives could pre-| pare a very toothsome roast from it, after which iuvita tions could be sent to one’s friends and a right jolly party be had. —.— j Aigs! where did we hear that word before?

The beef market took a turn for the better last week, and all kinds of cattle sold a shade higher. There was no marked Ad vance, but the feeling was more settled, and buyers’ actions de noted a broader beef outlet. In creased imports from Argentina were reported with the £h;st di rect ship load consignments, but as the stuff belonged to the pack-. ers of' this country, it was hand led in such a manner as not to injure the beef market any more than necessary. Receipts today are extra heavy at most markets, and part of the gain noted last week has been dissipated. The market is steady to fifteen lower, plain middle grade killing steers receiving least support. Some; fa ncy mixed yearlings sold at $9.25, straight yearling steers at $9.00, and heavy steers at $8.75. Steers selling at $7.50 to $8.25 rpove slowest today. Cows and heifers are largely steady, and this qlass of cattle have been the best fsell ers for two weeks or more. (|ood choice cows bring $6.25 to SI.OO, and veal calves reached $ll.OO a gain today, same as last w#ek. F\>rty three cars of quarejteen cattle came in today made up lar gely of two to four car shipments of meal fed steers of middle glass selling at $6.00 to $6.75. Stodkers and feeders sold stonglast wfeek, and they are in fair demand to day at prices about like last Mon day. Top cattle for the country sell at $7.00 to $7.50, sevicable animals at $6,25 to $6.75, ■which prices are a quarter lower than a year ago. Hogs did not change much in price last,week. Backers had to disclose the fact that they need material, and closing mar kets were the strongest most days. Receipts for the week were 60,000 head, and run today is 10, 000 head. Chicago has a big run today, with lower prices, and the market opened 10 lower here, but improved before the close, top, $7.70, bulks7.3s to $7.65. pigs $6.50 to $7.25. Hogs are cutting up for the fresh pork trade at a good profit, a condition that will prevent material losses while it lasts. Sheep and lambs advanced 10 to 25 cts last week, lambs sell ing around SB. for best. The mar ket is 10 to 20 today, pea fed lambs from Monte Vista sell ing at the t0p,57.85, other lambs $7.55 and $7.65. Mexican yearl ings fed in Missouri at $7, ew r es $4.75. A shipment from Ft. Coll ins sold at $4.75 for ewes, and $7.55 for lambs. Dealers expect In the Palace of Arbeces. Scene from George Kleine’s Photo-Drama “The Last Days of Pompeii’ at the Electric, Monday.
