TWENTY-TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH '4 · 1937 CATTLE AND SHEEP MARTS STEADY HOG PRICES OFF 5 T010 CENTS Run in Line With Expecta- ·· tions for First Time This Week. CHICAGO, (/P) -- Although .there were no early sales of steers arid lambs at Wednesday's tops, which were the highest for March in seven years, the markets showed no signs of backtracking Thursday. Scarcity of choice animals eligible to sell at these highs was the main reason for the lack of top sales but this situation stimulated the demand lot cattle and lambs of lower quality. Trade in both the cattle and lamb markets was active and prices we're little changed. There were too niany common and medium shorlfed beeves on ; hand and these tended lower. Thursday's top of $14.40 compared with the best price Wednesday of $15. The cattle market has advanced 25 to V5 cents so far this week, principally because of declining supplies. Buying interests bid unevenly lower , for ordinary lambs in Thursday's early trade but most sellers held their ground in demanding unchanged quotations. There were no sales up to Wednesday's 5H-45 peak in · early rounds. The hog run was in line with trade expectations for the ' firs? time this week and this gave a downward trend to. prices. The market started off-unchanged 'but then dropped 5 to 10 cents with lights off more in instances. Top was.510.40. . . . There was little change in wholesale" beef carcass and pork loin prices.

STOCK MARKET TREND UNEVEN Selected Shares Higher as Steels, Motors and Others Droop. NEW YORK, (£} _ Selected stocks tilted forward in Thursday's market but buying vigor faded from a number of the recent leaders. Favored merchandising, utility, rail and specialty issues attracted buying attention while steels, motors and others drooped. The ticker tape was behind during almost the entire first hour. There was a distinct absence of general trend, however, and activity slowed appreciably around noon. Quiet prevailed near the final lap. Transfers were around 2,700,000 shares. Steel labor peace continued as a sustaining market influence, but many traders were inclined to cash in p a r t , of their profits on the theory the good news had been fairly well discounted. It was also not overlooked that numerous strikes were continuing. Curb Market NEW YORK. W)--A number of usually less active shnres made comparatively wide swings, mostly higher, in an olher T wise slightly uneven curb market Thursday. Late In the morning Quebec Power stood mere than a point to the good as did Ohio Brass and American Gas and Electric. Electric Bond and Share was up aboul a point and United Gas added a m.ijor .fraction. Moving the other direction wore I J io- ncer Gold, off more than 2. and Blumcn- tlial nnd Newmont Mining each down about a point. The main body of nciive stocks held even or swung back and forth in narrow ranges. Bond Market NEW YORK, (^)--Convertible liens Thursday supplied the main motion in a bond m a r k e t which seemed unable to develop a definite trend. By mid-day the corporate list showed something l i k e an even division of plus and minus signs, the majority denoting minor changes, U. S. governments were also deeply grooved, with a few trifling griins in treasuries and sonic losses in t h e Home Owners Loan Corp. group. Further bullish Jictivitj- iti steel shares was the foundation for another Rood run in Youngstown Sheet Tube 3s. Following the stock, it pushed up more thnn 5 points In early trading. Great Northern 4s, series "C" was the outstanding performer in the rail division, moving up ibout 2',^. This was on top of a 4 point rise" yesterrtay. Buyers paid slightly higher prices for loans of Baltimore *V- Ohio, Erie, Illinois Central, Nickel Plate. Missouri Pacific, National Dairy Products and. Western Union. Bonds at Pure. Oil. Remington Hand. Utilities Power 5; Light and International Paper worked lower. Foreign lonns had a small rnllou-ing and prices showed unimportant changes.

CHICAGO--Thursday wheal--There was some uneasiness in wheat prices early in Thursday's session, influenced by rains throughout parts of the southwest and a slightly lower trend in foreign markets. Generally /air weather is forecast for Kansas and Nebraska for next 24 hours. Private reports were issued Thursday morning and Mr. Cromwell made farm reserves wheat 90,091.000 bushels, condition 73.4 per cent for winter wheat against 1923-32 average of 80.B. Condition of winlcr wheat given by one of (he other experts was practically (he same as Mr. Cromwell's. These private reporls were about in line u-ilh expectations. The Oklahoma weekly said conditions wcro fair lo good in the east and cenlral Paris and rather poor In i n n weslern zone, and in Cimarron and much of Texas county conditions were poor. There was an indeterminate trend in Winnipeg Thursday, very little export business being reported in Canada wheat, in fact export business in general \ ol small proportions. The tone of the wheat market Thursday on the whole was rather firm and reactionary periods seem lo allract a /air amount of outside buying. · Corn--Corn prices Thursday moved w i t h i n a rather narrow range. Mr. Groin- well made corn for grain stocks on fcrm March I. 474,314,000 bushels or 37.7 per cent of the crop against 308.48.3.000 bushels year ago, 'One of the other crop ex- peris said that indications are for slight reductions in the acreage tliis year lo be seeded to both oats and corn. Industries as usual were the bast buyers in cash. Mr. Crormvc-lVs e s t i m a t e on farm reserves of oals wns 2J16,{100.000 bushels and was from 31) to 40 million u n d e r the estimate of oilier private reporters. Farm stocks of oals a year ago were 548,000,000 bushels. Mr. Cromwell's figures emphasized Ihe small slocks of oats on farms. Early there was commission house selling of oals and those inlcrcslcd seemed to be on that side of Iho market d u r i n g most of Ihe session. As lo Ihe rye condition, Mr. Cromwell said this had declined a normal per cent since Ihe firsl of December.

Horse and Mule Auction! Every Tuesday We received 137 head of horses and mules this week. The quality was above normal with a good top end. The trade was about steady with recent weeks. We had several eastern buyers who took the belter class of horses. A good chunk in market flesh is selling good. We will have a lot of buyers next Tuesday and would advise that you get your horses in our next week's sale. We can use all the killers you send in at $12.00 for ton killers. Can also take mules and fistula horses. Remember we are selling more livestock each week than any auction in Iowa. This naturally gives our auction a lot of publicity which is advantageous to the consignor. Gel your slot''', in lo t h n sale by 11 o'clock if possible. MARVEL SALES CO. - - - WEBSTER CITY, IOWA
