FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE,.DECEMBER 19 • 1936 CHICAGO HOGS GENERALLY STEADY SATURDAY TOP SET AT $10,10 Swine Wind Up Week With Net Loss Ranging From 5 to 10 Cents. CHICAGO, (&)— The scattering of hogs sold Saturday moved at generally steady prices with the top at $10.10. Although 12,000 'fresh hogs arrived, the open market supply was only 1,000, an amount equal to the estimated holdover. There was no activity in other branches of the trade. Hogs prices fluctuated irregularly during the week and wound up with a net loss ranging from 5 to 10 cents. Swine weighing upward from 180 pounds showed the most loss. Cattle, on the other hand, advanced, with choice beef steers leading. Market supplies were reduced enough to give the lamb and cattle markets an upward tendency but the hog rua, though smaller here, was about in line with the previous week at the seven principal corn belt markets including Chicago. Cattle were under the bearish influence of poultry competition early in the week but the sharp falling off of supplies later was accompanied by a pronounced price advance. Good and choice cattle gained 50 cents while common and medium grades went up as much as 25 cents and the genernl run of better grade steers of cJl weights showed a 50 cents to SI upturn compared with Monday's low. The week's top again was $12.75rpaid for yearling steers. Fat lamb prices showed little change although feeders were a shade higher. The top for fat lambs was 'S9.15 paid at the close.

CHICAGO, m—Hit by late selling that resulted largely from tumbles of securities, wheat prices suffered decided losses at the last Saturday. Profit-taking on the part of today's speculative buyers did much also to turn wheat values downhill near the close. Something of a recovery, however, was in progress when the final gong cleared traders out of the pits. At the close wheat was %-l J /2 cents under Fridav's finish, Dec. Sl.38%-%, May S1.32%- J ,2, corn unchanged to '4 higher, Dec. $1.08%-1.09, May new $1.04%, oats unchanged to "A off, and provisions unchanged to 20 cents down. CHICAGO CASH ORALS'.

CHICAGO—Saturday Wheat—Wheat markets of the world displayed a moderately reactionary trend Saturday after the substantial advances of the week, the disposition being to accept some profits and await developments over the week-end. Net chansc in Liverpool were not of importance, but Buena; Aires was weak while losses in our market ran from major fractions to a point. Tlie action of rye at Winnipeg and in Chicago was possibly reflected in some of the operations in wheat here and the break in securities was a temporarily unsettling influence. As government report had no important effect as little change was shown from estimates. A government report next Monday, ho\yever, will likely be regarded as of more importance, as it will carry an estimate on acreage and condition as of Dec. 1 for fall sown winter wheat and rye for the 1937 harvest- WhUe wheat looks irregularly higher, ive continue to suggest caution in following the swells, as the market may become overbought at any time. Corn—Com was easier early but the action of wheat had very little effect and the market firmed later. Some sUort covering was evident in the December delivery. The spot market was steady. Rye was nervous and erratic, being influenced to some extent by the sharp changes in Winnipeg. INVESTMENT TRUUSTS.
