Between 400 find 60V doubledeck cars of sheep and lambs wilt be loaded On the Sheridan division ot the BUrftngton rail road during this week, practically all destined for tho South Omaha market Several hundred cars ot cattle will be loaded at tho same ttmo for Omaha, and Chicago. This week is expected to see the apex ot stock shipping from this section tor the year. Cattlo shipments have been heavy for more than a month, but sheep have been held longer on account of the ex cellent mountain range and uncertainty as to market stability. The week's ship ments will .be the heaviest not only of the year, but for several years, exceeding by 3,000 head the shipments for the cor responding week last year. The month is expected to show SpO carloads more 'shipped than during September last year. The shipments consist largely of lambs and wethers. In spite of tariff agitation, sheepmen are generally holding onto their flocks and breeding and buying others to replace them. These will be fed during the winter and sold in the spring. Lamb feeding has become a recognised industry In northern Wyoming. Last year many farmers realised as high as 120 per ton for alfalfa hay by feeding it to iambs in their fields. Range conditions have been exception ally good this summer and all stool: g being gathered fat Both cattle and sheep are going direct from the range to tho killing pens, Instead of into the feed lots. Range lambs are bringing J8 per 100 weight in South Omaha and Chi cago, while cattle are sold correspond ingly will. Thero is still plenter of 'grass on range and mountain and stock cattle and sheep are being left there later than usual. Omaha is the natural market for stock from this district.. Shipments can be made with but one stopover-for feed ing and- rest . and stock arrives in the best possiblo'condltion. Probably 90 per cent Of all 'shipments from here are to Omaha,' the rest going on to Chicago.. Millionaire Bixby to Take Stand and Deny AU Charges LOS ANGELES, Sept 22.
