For the week the receipts, while ahowln&r a verv heavy falling Off as compared with last week's extremely heavy run, are still about on an average wlthie cent weeks, but quite a little larger than for the same week a year ago. The pro pot tlon ot good fat steers arriving has been large and the quality of the catue good. Beef steers have been In pretty good de' mand and prices were quoted higher every day until Thursday and Friday, when there was an easing off In values. Still, at the close of th week all deairable kinds of beet steers are around 20&25c higher than at the close of the pievlous week. The trade has been in a good healthy con dition and generally satisfactory to th sellers. The highest price paid for full loads was (6.85. although scattering sales ot a few head have been made above tbat figure. i Cows and heifer gradually firmed up during the first half of the week, and whlio the feeling wss not aa strong toward the close prices nevertheless are safely 16Q26C nigiier than at last ween s ciose. Only a few weighty feeders have afrlvel this week, but the few coming havo sold generally to good advantage at prices mai nave not shown very much change from day to day. On the other hand, light stock ers have been a drug on the market and at the close of the week they are safely 40 &60e lower than they were at the best time me miaaie 01 last ween. ins cause lur th severe break In stockers was the dry weather prevailing over the g eater part Ot tributary territory.

HOQsJ Prices this morning looked 60 higher so far as the desirable weighty loads, at least, were concerned. Light hogs and butcher weights did not, In a good many cases, show any material improve ment, and trashy, light loads were slow sale, not being sought after to any great extent. Some were dividing it about this way; 230-pound hogs and heavier, fully 6c higher; under Z30 pounds, not mucn im provement. The trade was fairly active when once under way and most of the hog sold In good season. A very liberal pro portion sold Inside ths ranga ot 87.007.25 and on up as high as 87.40, this top being 60 higher than yesterday. The receipts ot bogs tni week nave shown a considerable falling off, ther being a decrease of over 10,000 nead aa com pared with last week and over 20,000 head as compared wtlh two weeks ago. There I a sbortug of over 11,000 head as compared with a year ago. The .market during the week has had a general upward tendency, prices gradually working upward and at the cloae they are around 10a45c higher than one week ago. The high point was touched today, when hogs sold up to 87.40, theblghestt price paid on this market ilnce March, wnen ..to was reaensa. w un that exception th market Is now th high est that It has been since ltKi2, when as high as (8 05 was reached.
