MEAT ON THE HOOF.
Leading Features of Monday's Mar

HOG SUPPLY AND DEMAND LIGHT.
Cattle Higher West, but Slow Here at Last
SHEEP AXD LAMBS SCAECE--HIGHER
OFFICE OT PITTSBURG DISPATCH,!
Monday, JqIv 8, 18S9.
"Western drovers report cost of cattle 10c
to 15c higher than last Meek. They were,
however, unable to persuade buyers here
that they should have an advance on last
week's rates. In fact, markets were slow at
last Monday's prices. The grade that best
meets the demands of our trade are smooth,
tidy steers weighing from 1,250 to 1,300
pounds. There were a few cattle in tlio supplies
which weighed from 1,500 to 1.G00, but their
beftiness was against them. The time has
passed -a hen prime heavy steers are wanted for
our averaco local trade.
A Diamond market batcher said to-day: "I
find little profit of late in buying catUemuch
above 1,300 pounds. The stock I boucht this
week consited of nine steers, weighing from
1,300 to 1.500. and the ranee of prices was M 25
to S4 35." For 1 500 to 1,600 Western cattle the
price asked was H 75 to $4 85. but that this
this price was realized is exceedingly dubious.
Medium weicbts. 1,200 to 1,400 pounds, were
held at H W to $4 65: prime light weights, U00 to
1,100 pounds, at (3 90 to H.
Country cattle were in better supply than
last week, and demand ai good. Dry cows,
bulls aud stags sold at 12Jf 3c per pound.
Calves were very scarce and higher, with a
range of prices from 45Kc per pound.
Fresh cows were slow on a range of iJO 009

summed up the cattle trade situation for the
week: "We paid more for our stock and re
ceived less than we did last Monday. The
drover who was fortunate enough to buy his
stock at Chicago before Wednesday ot last
week will come out all right. But on Wednes
day and Thursday prices went up at Chicago,
and those who made their purchases In the
latter part of the week w:ll have all they can
do to come out even."
blieep nnd Lambi.
Supplies were fully 500 head less than last
week, aud demand was above supply, particu
larly for choice grades. Good spring lambs
were at a premium. Many more sheep and
lambs than were on the market would have
found ready sale at outside rate. Prices were
from 25c to 50c per cw; higher than last Mon
day, and at the advance markets closed strong,
with everything cleaned up. Prime Western

The season is now here when fat hogs are
wanted by butchers, and pork packers go else
where than Herr's Island for their materials.
Chicago has proved a better market than Pitts
burg both for buying and selling hog products
all the past season. The price of tops at Chi
cago to-day is $4 55. Prices established at
Herr's Island by actual sales ranged from S4 25
to $4 75. Receipts from Ohio: J. Langden, 17

There was a good inquiry for real estate

The Wilkinsburg gas well, about which so
much was said and so much expected a few
months ago, has apparently gone, in the lan
guage of the late James Flsk, where the wood
bine climeth, and the find, that was to rival
Mnrraysville, given over to cattle. The Turtle

In regard to the apprehensions of an unusual
amount of sickness in Pittsburg this season
there are two opinions. A leading physician
"I do not anticipate anything like an epi
demic here tbis summer. The indications, so
far as I can see, are not favorable for it. The
scare that was caused soon after the Johns
town disaster had the good effect ot causing
citizens to clean up their premises. The city
has also done good work on the streets and al
leys, which are in excellent condition. A great
deal has been said abont the water, but it is as
good as usual, and we nre used to It. There is
no special sickness now, nearly all of it being
such as Is incident to hot weather. In my
opinion there is no cause for alarm. Still, I
would advise people to be cautious in regard to
their habits, avoiding all extremes, and the
city authorities should see to it that the streets
and sewers are kept clean. I think proper
care in these matters will bring us ont ail
Tbis Is good advice by a high authority, and
it should be scrupulously followed. An epi
demic at the beginning of fall would be as dis
astrous to business as to life.
The prize fight led in point of Interest on
Fourth avenue yesterday. Bankers, brokers,
real estate dealers and curbstone operators all
had something to say about it, and, while con
demning it as a brutal exhibition, admired the
pluck of the pugilists. Sullivan had the most
friends, and bis victory was regarded with
quiet gratification by many staid citizens who
usually would not be snspected of knowing of
bis existence. Now that this disturbing ele
ment Is ont of the way, it Is to be hoped there
will be no fnrther interruption to business
until turkey-day next November.
McKeo's Woods, near Edgewood, until the
last few years tho largest body of timber con
venient to Pittsburg, is disappearing so fast
that by the end of summer not enough of it
will be left to make a shade The land has
been sold off in lots, and buildings are going
up at a rapid rate. It will soon be a good point
for the extension of rapid transit.

When the stock brokers came together yes
terday it was evident that they were bullishly
inclined, of which further evidence was fur
nished by the figures which covered the black
board. All the favorites were strong, and as
concessions were refused trading was nipped in
the bud. i
Philadelphia Gas was the only thing handled,
and of it only two small lots were let go. It
was strong at Saturday's closing prices. It was
thought the strike in the Bellvernon field
would give it something of a boom in the after
noon, but such was not the case Electric was
steady at 51 bid and 51 asked. There was a
private sale at 51. Neither Philadelphia Gas
nor Electric was extensively offered. La Nona
maintained its advance of last week, and an
office sale of 60 shares was reported at SX There
Is said to be more in this stock than appears
npon the surface. Tho tractions were barely
steady and neglected. .
All the favorites are in good shape, and it
would take but trifling concessions to make
business. Bids, offers and sales were:

A GOOD BEGINNING.
Bank Commence the Week With a Large
Volume of Basic ess.
The movement In the local money market
yesterday was good as to checking and deposit
ing, but rather slow as to discounting. The
small demand for money is nothing unusual
for this season of tbe year, when there U
scarcely any expansion of bnsiness. In about
six weeks the fall trade will set in, when it is
expected there will be employment for all tbe
surplus capital of the country, especially If
there should be a revival of the speculative In
terest, as is anticipated.
Rates were steady at 6 0 6 per cent. Cur
rency was in good supply. The Clearing House
report was favorable, the exchanges footing op
$2,462,097 05 aud the baUnce 461,510 56. Large
speculative dealings in grain at Baltimore once
more give her precedence over Pittsburg in the
volume ot exchanges.
Money on call at New York yesterday wa
easy at 2 to 8 per cent, last loan 3; closed
offered at 3 per cent. Prime mercantile paper,

OH Dealers Loslnc Heart and Talk Favor
ably of the Old Plan.
The oil market yesterday was so dull as to be
hardly worth mentioning: Before the gong
sounded there was considerable discussion orer
the new deal, and a majority of those present
favored a retnrn to the old plan.
One ot the original advocates of the system
of trading in futures said: "The present dull
ness should not be attributed to the change In
the methodof the dealing. The market would be
dull under any system. There Is no business.
Outsiders have lost all taste for oil speculation,
and so long as they remain ont there will be no
revival. Traders can't do bnsiuess among
themselves forever. You might as well try to
restore a dead man to life as to make bnsiness
where there Is none. If you go back to the old
plan you will find that the same state ct affairs
Notwithstanding this and other arguments
in favor of futures, the impression was quite
general that the Exchange would soon return
to the cash system.
The market opened tame at 91, declined
JJc and closed at the opening figure. There
were no transactions in cash or July options.
Trading was slow both East and west, and
there was no news of importance, Saturday's
clearings were $59,000.

AN EAE1T FALL TEADB.
The Conditions Promise a Two Weeks'
Earlier Start Than Usual.
Henry B. Clews A. Co., New York, predict
that the fall trade will start two weeks earlier
than usual. Concerning stocks and business
generally, they say:
"In outside conditions the developments on
the Stock Exchange have been favorable,
rather than otherwise. Crop accounts con
tinue encouraging, the advanced conditions
promising to give the fall trade a start two
weeks earlier than usual. An early trado
usually being a good one, and merchants being
relieved of the uncertainty of any disturbing
tariff changes for some time to come, a more
hope f ul feeling than usual prevails in business
circles. The demand for both coal and iron is
increasing, and tbis Indicates growing indus
trial activity. The monetary situation is with
out marked change. Under the influence of
liberal Government disbursements rates are
growing somewhat easier. The bank reserves,
however, are very low, the bulk being held by
four banks; and tbe interior demands, which
are likely to begin earlier than usual, are al
ready being reflected In westward currency
"Gold exports have practically ceased, and
no further Important drain of our resources
from this quarter need be expected. The In
dustrials' or Trnst certificates acted independ
ently of stocks, forming a market of them
selves. So far as concerns the stock market
proper, the outlook is uncertain, owing to the
railroad troubles referred to above. Should
there be difficulties or celay in patching np the
disputes between the Grangers and among the
Trunk lines as seems not improbable, there
may follow a still lower range of prices; and
until the prospects in tbis direction are more
favorable, we advise sales on all rallies and
purchases only on pronounced breaks."
Robert J. Stoney. Jr., of Whitney A
Stevenson, is oft on his vacation.
Electric and Philadelphia Gas were the
strongest stocks on the list yesterday. It
would take very little to boom them.

Members of tbe Oil Exchange held a meet

turning to the old system of trading: but ad
journed without taking definite action. Tbe
matter will come np again In a short time.
Western Railroads Dominate the Stock
Market Tbe Grangers Pqoerzed
Sberta Frisbtenrd and Knsb
to Covet A Spurt in tbe
jNswYobjc Jnly 8, The stoek market was
again tinder tbe influence of tbe Western rail
roads to-day, and declines extending to 2J4J per
cent were brought abont, though there was
afterward & substantial recovery from the loir-
est prices. The news o'f the -day was not of
special value, but there was Bote el a disquV
etlng nature persistently circulated, especially
during the forenoon, and almost every member
of the Interstate Association was reported as
ready to withdraw. This was supplemented by
heavy sale for the short account, and tbe oper
ations of the day resulted in a marked increase
In the number of outstanding short contracts.
The borrowing demand for the leading shares,
especially the Grangers, is now large, ranging
from fiat to 5 per cent.
The pressure was specially severe against
Union Pacific, St. Paul, Atchison and the other
grangers, but the rest of tbe list were not for
gotten and everything traded in felt the pres
sure more or less. A dividend was declared
npon Jersey Central of IK per cent quarterly,
tbe first one for a long term of years, and thus
started that stock up, and it bad soon gained
its forenoon's decline, and later something in
addition. There was more buying for the long
account In the afternoon, and tbe shorts be
coming frightened, covered liberally for time,
while tbe general feeling in the Western situa
tion became more hopeful, the assertion being
made that tbe bankers would take a hand di
rectly at the coming meeting to bring abont
harmony among tbe competing lines. The im
pression that tbe selling movement had been
largely overdone gained ground rapidly and
the tone of the dealings became at times posi
tively strong, although tbe losses of the fore
noon were not made up.
Louisville and Nashville was pressed for sale
jHcsuinaoiy inr loreign account, and tne weak
ness in Atchison extended to the Missouri Pa
cific and the Northern Pacific group. New
England was very firmly held during the first
decline, but afterward gave way and retired to
below its opening price, but all of its loss was
made np at tbe close Toward 2 o'clock prices
rallied quite sharply, and in tbe last hour there
was a most decided upward movement in Sugar
Trust, when it reached the highest point of tbe
day. The general market closed dull, being at
the time steady to firm at something better
than lowest figures. Tbe trusts outside of Lead
were quietiexcept the spurt of activity inS ugar
in tbe last hour, but their movements, with the
single exception mentioned, were small and
Railroad bonds were more active than of late,
but sympathized with the weakness in stocks,
and of the important changes this evening a
large majority are losses. The Increased aui
matlon, however, is in great measure due to
the activity In tbe Chesapeake and Ohio rives,
which contributed $278,000, and tbe West Shore
fours, which furnished $129,000 to the total.
The following table shows tbe prices of active
stocks on the New York Btock Exchange.

MR; H. ROBERTSON
FROM AN UNTIMELY DEATH.
Mr. H. Robertson, a native nf Scotland, hnt
1 who has been a resident of this country for sev
eral years, nas oeen a victim 01 Kianey disease
with tbe following symptoms: He had a heavy
dragging pain across the small of his back, ex
tending from one side to the other, and a bloat
ed, dropsical condition of the bowels, high col
ored urine, and he noticed that sometimes it
contained a reddish, brick-colored sediment,
and at other times the sediment was of a light-
i3u uuiur. xxe noucea mas ne .xeu very urea in
the morning, and as he gradually grew weaker,
his stomach became affected. His appetite
became poor, and he was constantly annoyed
with sour eructations of gas from bis stomach
after eating, and on account of the kidneys not
performing their function properly, his blood
became charged with rhenmatic poison, so that
he bad much pain about his shoulders and dif
ferent parts of his body. As be became more
emaciated he began to cough, and he felt much
tightness and weight across his lungs. In
speaking of the matter one day, he said:
"I doctored with the best doctors I could hear
of, but was fast getting worse. I became mel
ancholy and thought 1 could not live. Finally
I began treatment with tbe physicians of tbe
Polypathic Medical Institute, who are special
ists for chronic diseases, and although confined
to the bed when I commenced their treatment,
my improvement was very rapid, and I have
beep entirelv cured bv these nhvslciana. and I
gladly sign my name. II. Robertson."

The cases of catarrh treated and cured by
the physicians of tbe Catarrh and Dyspepsia
Institute at 323 Penn avenue are usually those
of the most advanced stages, and who bave
spent years of time and much money treating
elsewhere, nntll by some friend or in reading
tbe papers tbey learn of the Catarrh and Dys
pepsia Institute, and that others have been
cured of diseases similar to their own. The
physicians of this institute refer with pride to
tbe many testimonials already published and
hundreds of others on file at their office, re
ceived from patients whom they
bave enred of simple catarrh, ulcerative ca
tarrh and some cases where the lungs were
badly diseased. Dyspepsia, including ulcera
tion of the stomach and diseases of women.
Tbe words ot comment and praise received
concerning tneirtreatment and cure of diseases
Eeculiar to women are very encouraging. Mrs.
r. Crossley is always present dnring office
hours to consult with ladies. "You will not
publish my picture or name in the paper, will
yonr' is often asked. The portraits of patients
are never displayed in the papers, and no testi
monial or name of any patient is published in
the papers without tbe full consent or wish of
"When is the best time to cure catarrh?" is
asked. In the summer, by all means, as in
cold weather witb s4)den changes of temper
ature, the patient is much more liable to colds,
thus retarding the progress of the treatment.
Many children are badly afflicted with catarrh,
frequently developing into consumption at a
very early age. The crowds of men, women and
children that dally assemble at tbe parlors of
tbe Catarrh and Dyspepsia Institute is the best
evidence of the standing of these physicians
and their success in making cures. Remember
tbe place. 323 Penn avenue. Consultation free

GRATEFUL COM ORTINU.
By a thorough knowledge of the natural laws
which govern the operations of digestion and
nutrition, and and by a careful application of the
fine properties of well-selected Cocoa, Mr. Epps
has provided our breakfast tables with a deli
cately flavored beverage which may save us
many heavy doctors' bills. It is by the judicious
use of such articles ot diet that a constitution
may be gradually built up until strong enough
to resist every tendency to disease. Hundreds
of subtle maladies are floating around us ready
to attack wherever there Is a weak point. Wo
may escape many a fatal shaft by keeping our
selves well fortified with pure blood and a prop
erly nourished frame." Civil Service Gazette.
