Sales o£ 150-180 Ib. ho?s at 58.00 to 59.10 ·were fully steady with the average of the previous day, but bids on weightier classes were somewhat easier. Light activity was reported i cattle alleys on a fresh supply o 7,500 matured cattle and 2,00 calves. No pressure was exertei upon any of the buying agencies an while packers received no direct con signments they felt the utmost con fidehce that they would be able tf secure whatever they needed out o the open market without price a'd vances. One of the major killing- house received 664 lambs direct from Omaha, but others were withou killing: material. The run of 18,000 was regarded as sufficient for al trade needs, but eastern buyers die not reveal the extent of their orders during their initial cruise of the sheep sheds. Steady prices were asked.

NATIONAL BANK ' Mason City QUICK RELIEF FROM CONSTIPATION That }s the joyful .cry of thous- tnds since Dr. Edwards produced Olive Tablets, the substitute for calomel. Dr. Edwards, a practicing physician- for 20 years, and calomel's old time enemy, discovered the formula for Olive Tablets while treating patients for chronic constipation and torpid livers. Olive Tablets do not contain calomel, just a healing, soothing vegetable laxative safe and picas- ant. No griping is the "keynote" of these little sugar-coated, olive-colored tablets. They help causa the bowels and liver to act normally. They never force them to unnatural action.

NEW YORK, Feb. 11. X--Wall street revelled in an old-fashioned bull market in shares for the fourth successive trading session today. The mid-week business statistics were largely negative in their implications but the fact that they showed basic industries still able to offer strong resistance to depression was enough to maintain the carnival spirit among speculators. That spirit did not require much in the way of positive developments, since it represented primarily a revulsion from the morbid frame of mind inherited from the drastic adjustments of the final months of 1930. The share market encountered a wave of profit taking in the first half hour, and again in the early afternoon, but trading turned dull on declines, and swelled to new record volume for the new year as the market advanced. Coppers and nonferrous metals were strong in response to firmer metal prices. Chile Copper surged up 6 points, and American Smelting, Phelps Dodge and Granby gained 2. Among, the volatile specialties Case and Columbian Carbon sold up about 9 points. Auburn dropped 10',4, recovered, and was then given a rest. Utilities and pivotal industrials were strong. Shares making extreme gains of 2 to 4 points included American Can, American Telephone, American and Foreign Power, U. S. Steel, Westinghouse Electric, Johns Manville, and Consolidated Gas. General Motors moved narrowly but Chrysler got tip a point. Credit continued abundant, with outside call money still at one per cent, indicating that the upward movement in shares had not required much in the way of borrowings, perhaps because much of it! has been short covering.
