I CHICAGO, ~*Iarch 14. CSV-Live- stock prices ..closed this week with values markedly higher in almost every division of,the trade. Heavy steers and plain grade lambs were th« only groups, to show any actual weakness. The outstanding advance 1 of the week was in the hog market where th'e average'cost rose nearly 65 cents and top prices closed St cents above last,week-end in light and medium weight b'utchers.-Heavy weights failed ,to sh'ow quite so much gain, but finished at a 4E cent higher range. The storm cul down supplies in-the first part o) the week and broadened demand lor dressed pork, so that lotas advanced sensationally to ?3 to ?4 higher prices. Closing trade for the week was fully steady ^with Friday's average but there were too^few'on sale to attract many buyers. Lights sold a1 ?8.40 early and 270-lb. butchers brot $7.55. Packers took 7,500 of the run of 9,000 on direct billing. Mixed loads of yearling steers and heifers _and vealers proved to be the most suqqessfiii of all cattle in scoring advances for the week and each of these classes was quoted ?1 higher on the closing trading this week than last. All light steers and yearling steers showed a gam of 25c to 50c for the week, as heavy and medium weight kinds outnumbered any other sort. Average cost of steers, ranged from S7.50-to $9.75. Cutter cows and all bulls sold 25o higher and feeding cattle picked up 25c to 40c on the strength of a limited supply. Lambs cams within lOc of the season's peak in selling at 59.50 this week and altho they were not able to hold that level all week, they closed steady to 25c higher than last week-end, in the face of receipts that were 15,000 head heavier at Chicago' Shippers saved the market by taking nearly 42,000 head for the week against 30,900 a week ago. Dressed lamb was the fchief factor in maintaining present price levels and good demand for the meat at once boosted live lamb prices.
