Stock Market Moves Ahead New York, (&')— In one of th« heaviest trading days of the year, the stock market moved ahead Thursday for gains running to more than a point. The volume of business was estimated at around 1,900,000 shares for the entire session. The buying surge started with the opening bell and put the quotations tape behind floor transactions for a brief period. Within a short time, however, the pace slackened but continued at a high level. Profit taking cut down a great number of the best advances and the market fell back from its peak.

ALWAYS TOP QUALITY FULL-WEIGHT PACKAGES \ POUND. 1 POUND, * POUND TENDER IN 5 MINUTES Soybeans Drop Several Cents Chicago, (/P)—Soybeans dropped several cents on the board of trade Thursday, weakening the rest of the market. Losses in other pits were limited mostly to fractions. Hedging pressure was a factor in the soybean sell-off. Another was the splendid harvesting weather throughout the mid-west, expected to speed up marketing of both soybeans and corn. Corn futures sold off with a decline in cash prices. Receipts were fairly large Thursday, particularly by barge. Wheat was tinder mild pressure all day. The market ignored senate passage of the Anderson farm bill and the agriculture department's Oct. 1 crop forecast. Wheat closed |-| lower, December $2.118-3, corn was unchanged to I lower, December $1.17j-i, oats were i-i higher, December 68J, rye was li-2J lower, December $1.47J-i, soybeans were 3J-4J- lower, November $2.30}-i, and lard was 5 cents lower to 8 cents a hundred pounds higher, October $11.55.

Livestock AUCTION Saturday, October 15, 1:00 P. M. There will be another big run of cattle as follows: 1350 CATTLE 130 very choice Hereford steers—wt. 600 to 700 Ibs. from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. These are the Henry Kittle cattle that we have sold for many years and will suit the most particular feeder. 170 choice Hereford steers—wt. 600 to 750 Ibs. from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. These are the Wm. Hittle cattle. Wm. Hittle is a son of Henry Hittle. 75 choice Hereford steers—wt. 600 to 700 Ibs. from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. These are the Holt cattle. 100 good Hereford steer calves—wt. 400 to 500 Ibs. from Colorado. 40 rood to choice Hereford steer and heifer calves—wt. 400 ]bs. from Montana. 30 Angus steers—wt. 650 Ibs. from Montana. 13 Angus heifers—wt. 600 Ibs. from Montana. 87 good Hereford steers—one brand—wt. 600 to 700 Ibs. from Craig, Colo. 50 good Hereford steers—wt. 800 to 900 Ibs. from Steamboat Springs, Colo. 100 good Hereford steers—wt. 500 to 650 Ibs. from Whitewater, Colo. ' / 92 good to choice Hereford heifers—wt. 500 to 575 Ibs. from Augusta, Mont. 90 good Hereford heifers—wt. 550 to 625 Ibs. from Shelby, Mont. 225 good Hereford steers—wt. 600 to 800 Ibs. from Montana and Wyoming. In addition to the above listed cattle there will be several other loads of stock cattle of various weights. SPECIAL REQUESTS: Please do not bring any natives to this Saturday's Auction. We have ample capacity for any amount of them on" Tuesday which is the day we sell natives now." HOGS Can sell any amount of feeder pigs and they are in good demand. TO OUR FEEDER CUSTOMERS: You will be pleased with the quality of stock available in our auctions. Ninety pe^r cent of the above listed cattle will 'be mountain bred long haired cattle. Quite a percentage of them will be thinner than the cattle we have been getting as they are starting to show some effects of recent snowstorms in the west and weighing conditions will be the best of the year. As you know it is only a short time each fall that the really good mountain bred cattle come and cs we all know they are the kind that make big gains in Iowa feed lots. We feel that the big western runs will terminate quicker than usual this year as the movement started earlier and the volume has been big each week. In our last Saturday's Auction our calf trade again was considerably lower, in fact quite a few calves sold here lower than they oould be bought in the west. Our yearling trade was fully steady and quality best of the year. If you are in the market for stock cattle we feel that the sooner you make your purchase the better your buys will be as prices in the range country are $2.00 to $3.00 per rwt. higher than they were a month ago. We do not expect them to be any cheaper. With corn picking in full swing the crowds will be much lighter and we feel you will be able to make some attractive purchases this Saturday so plan to be with us. SPECIAL NOTICE: All Cattle Inclpdlnr Cmlves Win Be Sorted Into Uniform L*)to And i*UI By Weight. MARVEL SALES CO. WEBSTER CITY, IOWA
