orncB or Pittsburg Dispatch. 1
Wedkesdat. November :.7. 1SS8L J
Receipts of cattle on Monday were 110
loads, against 85 the previous Monday.
About five loads have been received since
Monday, making a total for the week of 25
loads more than last week. In the receipts
there were no strictly prime cattle, bnt
about ten loads of good shippers from Ohio,
weighing from 1,400 to 1,450 pounds. There
were none on the market which reached
3,500 pounds. The range for these better
grades of cattle was S4 004 30, and only a
few reached the latter figure. The range for
the same grade last week was ft 104 40.
All grades of cattle are off 610c from last
week's prices. There were no export Buy
ers. The cood cattle were mostly sold for
shipment to Xew York.
What t Wanted Here.
Our local butcher trade calls lor smooth,
tidy stock, weighing from 1,100 to 1,300
pounds. All above the latter figure have
been slow sale all this season. The great
shrinkage in receipts for local trade ot late
is due mainly to the diminishinc demand
for stackers. Buyers who were good for 10
or 15 loads of this class of cattle a month
ago, now call foifcbnt 4 or 5 loads. Said
a leading stockman this morning: "It was
easier to place 150 loads of cattle a month ago
than it is to place 100 loads now. The same
number of buyers will take SO loads less now
than then. The reason is tbat the season is
nearly over. After harvest for a few weeks
Crass was ood. and farmers were looking out
lor stackers. Now they want something that
is ready to go right into tbe stable, and about
ail that are wanted are cheap poor cattle
which we call straw trampers."
Weak Mnrket for IIocs.
Monday's receipts were large and markets
were weak at a range of S3 70(23 80 for Yorkers
and Philadclphias. There has been no recovery
from the slowness with which markets opened
at tbe beginning of the week. Prices
were as low at East Liberty as at Chicago for
a day or two past. In fact markets were stead
ier at tbe latter place than either here or Cin
cinnati on Monday.
Advices from Chicago to one of our promi
nent packers this morning are that receipts
there to-dav were the largest this year, being
in all 43,000 head. The outside price for the
best at Chicago this morning was $4 651 7a
There is a general feeling tbat bottom is not
yet reached and that hogs will settle to a basis
of 13 50 for tbe best packers.
A leading stockman of East Liberty said this
morning that with the prices of lard and bacon
which bare ruled of late S3 50 per cwt. is suffi
cient to pay for hogs. Said he: "I have been
ef the opinion for some time that either hog
proancts must go up or bogs come down. It
seems that hogs are coming down, and they
have not touched bottom yet."
Provisions are fairly steady at the old rates.
A year ago at this time hogs were selling at
East Liberty for J5 60 per cwt.
Sbeep and Lambs
The run has been very light all this week.
Receipts were scarcely large enough to make a J
market. Choice stock is higher, chiefly be
cause of its great scarcity. Shippers were wise
in withholding stock this week when turkey
takes tbe precedence of staple meats. Prime
Western wethers readily brought 20c per 100
above prices of a week ago, owing to scarcity.

tripped in, and, in the most pleasant kind
ot a'manner, asked for the privilege of using
the telephone- Of course, it was granted.

the reporter, who happened to be in, had no

Wheat Opens Stronger on BallUh News
From I he Korthwrst, bnt Weakens

Decline and Rallies.
Chicago There was a fair trade In wheat
to-day, and tbe feeling was a little unsettled.
There was considerable covering by,shorts both
for December and May, and also a good deal of
realizing for May. Some forelcn buylngorders
were also executed for May delivery. The market
opened up very strong, and pnoes were H&e
higher. Later they declined ljcfor December
and JSdKc for May, ruled easy and closed He
lower for December and Jc lower for May than
closing figures on yesterday.
The strong opening was due partly to the
firm tone of cable advices. Local operators,
too, were bullishly inclined, influenced by the
strong news from the Northwest, which quoted
a sharp demand for cash and reported some
large lots having changed hands at good prices.
It was also rumored 24,000 bushels uf winter
for export here, and only a scarcity of vessel
room prevented the working of some orders
for both Chicago spring and Duluth hard
wheat. One party here had Inquiries for 20
loads of fancy hard special bin wheat stored at
The later -freakness was due In part to rather
free realizing. The receipts at Minneapolis
and Duluth-continue liberal, but farmers' de
liveries are reported to be much smaller.
Com Very little interest was manifested in
this market, trading being.light and almosten
tirely local with limited to He range. The
feeling prevailing was comparatively firm,
though no material change in values was re
corded except for November, which was nearly
1c higher. 'I he unsettled weather was looked
upon as a strengthening feature and offerings
were not as liberal as on yesterday. Tbe spec
ulative market openea a shade above yester
day, was Arm most of the session, receded a
trifle, became dull and lifeless and closed
sligbtly higher than yesterday.
Oats were quiet and without Important fea
tures. The weather was wet and is expected to
check arrivals for the present. There was fair
covering by shorts, but offerings being moder
ate a qniet and steady feeling prevailed.
Mess pork A comparatively light trade was
reported and there were no particular changes
to note. Early prices ruled 5c loner. Toward
tbe doss the market was steadier and the de
cline was recovered.
Lard Trading was exceedingly limited.
Prices were without material change.
Short rib sides There was onlv a moderate
trade reported and there were no particular
changes to note. Prices for November were
advanced 1520c owing to scarcity, but other
deliveries were unchanged.

Minneapolis There was a steady tone to
tbe cash market for the opening, and it was not
difficult for sellers to put up prices of milling
wheat to keep even with the advance in
futures. Later, when prices m the pit fell off,
losing the early advance, sellers of cash wheat
refused to follow, and prices held firm, though
trading was less active. Local millers were
taking a little, shippers are buying some, and
local elevator companies were in the market
early, although the last named class of buyers
retired early. Receipts of wheat were 479 cars
and shipments 135 cars. Closing quotations:

The Dispatch sometime ago contained an
article on big trees. It attracted the attention
of C. N. Meriwether, of Glen Ellen, Tenn., who
writes: "On the farm of Fletcher Beaumont,
in Montgomery county, Tenn., there is a pop
lar tree 6 feet 1 Inch In diameter five feet from
the ground, and is apparently the same size up
to the first limb, 75 feet above the ground. The
tree is sound, and is estimated to contain 15,600
feet of lumber. No estimate has been made of
its age, but it undoubtedly antedates any other
living thing in this section."
J. E, Emerson, the Beaver Falls saw manu
facturer, says concerning the invention of the
circular Saw: "In 1870. while I was making jny
patent inserted toothed saws with Messrs. Hub
bard Brothers & Co., on Water street, in Pitts
burg, a very sprightly, intelligent, and well
educated old man, who said be was then 92
years of age, and that his name was Jack Coop,
came in with an old rusty, circular saw. about
18 Inches in diameter, to get it polished up. I
at once became interested in it The old man
told me that in 1799 he made that saw while in
the British navy by filing tbe teeth into it, and
then got a hanu-saw maker to straighten and
polish it for him, and bad a mandrel made, and
used the saw in tbe navy. At that time 1 gave
an account of the incident to the Scientific
American, and it was published in that journal,
the editors then claiming that in all probability
this was the first circular saw ever made."
While it- is very true tbat homes can be
bought for spot cash for considerably less than
they will cost on monthly payments, there are
many who can never accumulate enough money
to get the advantage of cash payment, but who
can pay something every month. To overcome
this difficulty building and loan associations
were established, and the good they have done
in enabling people to become owners of the
bouses they live in is beyond expression. None,
but a capitalist with a long purse can afford to
sell houses and lots on monthly payments, but
any one with a steady job can afford to buy on
those terms. If misfortune overtakes him, apd
through failure to make final payments forfeits
what be has already paid, he has the satisfac
tion of knowing that, after all, be has only
paid a little higher rent thn be otherwise
would have done.
Every thinker knows that the man who
would succeed must do more work than he gets
paid for, in every profession and trade. It may
be taken for granted tbat tbe man who will do
onlvS20 worth of work a week because his
salary is but S20 will never get more than S20 a
week, for the- simple reason tbat be has never
shown bis employer that he Is worth more.
Good observers figure it that an employe who
means to succeed has to do from 10 to 20 per
cent more work than he gets actual pay for.
This be has to do until he reaches a certain
point, and, having reached that point, he will
find that by as much as his income has in
creased by so much has the demand foramount
and intensity of his labor diminished. Labor
brings its market value; and is seldom over
paid, oftener underpaid. It is the experience
the "Know How" that brings the money.
Said a prominent business man yesterday:
"The fact has often been commented upon that
the children of our former rich men are now
wealthy only where their money was left to
them invested in realty. Our values are at
present so reasonable that no one need make a
poor investment who will use ordinary pru
dence and judgment. One dollar Invested
now ought to produce 82 within three years, at
farthest. And in the meantime any investor
can sleep soundly, knowing as he must that his
investment has a solid foundation and that the
chances are ten to one that there will be ho de
The installment plan of doing business is
getting to be wonderfully popular and com
mon. Nearly everything from a house and lot
to a bedstead or washboard can be bought on
weekly or monthly payments. At first sight
this plan would seem to be an injury to the
furniture trade and to tbe house building
trade, but no complaints to this effect are
heard. On tbe contrary, an opposite opinion is
generally held by legitimate dealers. The in
stallment men take a class of trade that regu
lar dealers cannot afford to handle.

An Active Movement In the Money Market
and Kates Firm.
While there was nothing particularly new In
local banking circles yesterday, the favorable
conditions previously noticed continued.
The demand for accommodations was brisk
and rates were firm at 67 per cent the mail'
mum to outsiders, which is causing something
of a kick, but as there seems to he no remedy
for the discrimination just now, they must grin
and bear it. It is quite reasonable tbat regular
customers sbonld be given the preference.
Money was plenty for legitimate business.
Checking and depositing were large. The ex
changes were S2,087,590 Is and the balances
S326,55o 21. Both currency and exchange were
in fair supply.
Money on call at New York yesterday was
easy, ranging from 8 to 7 per cent, last loan,
closed offered at 8. Prime mercantile paper.
67J Sterling exchange quiet and steady at
S4 81 for 60-day bills and H 85 for demand.

WOUND UP WEAK.
Oil Operators Not Disposed to Encase In
Weakness was about the only feature of the
oil market yesterday. Refined advanced in
Europe, but it bad no effect here. The
Standard, even, seemed to be taking a rest.
Sheets were pretty well evened up, and there
was no disposition to enter into new deals with
a holiday in sight, and so near the end of the
week. The market openedat tl 05, highest
SI 0 lowest SI 0 closing $1 05.
Abroker remarked: "The market has been
playing some queer capers of late. It bobs up
and down without any particular reason, so far
as I can see. I think the Standard is pulling
the wires. It wants to wipe out tbe premium
for one thing, and cheaper oil for another. If
lert to itself tbe market would advance, not
withstanding field develonments."
Reports yesterday were to the effect tbat the
well on the Beagle farm, in the Shanopin field,
was doing 1,000 barrels a day. It is owned by
tbe Raccoon Oil Company.
Tbe Davis well in the Chartiers field, although
not drilled in, was reported as keeping up a
steady gait of 480 barrels a day. The Mis
sionary So. 2 on the Cope farm. In the Brush
Creek field, was doing 250 barrels.
Advices from St. Mary's. W. Va., stated:
Tiro of the test wells drilling in this territory
have come in in tbe last 21 hours. Tbe Wise
well, just across the line in Ritchie county,
struck the sand last night, and is reported as a
15-barreI wclL Tbe well on the Cochran farm,
near here, came in about tbe same time, a
strong 0-barrel gusher. Pittsburg operators
are now prospecting in Ritchie county, with a
view of putting some wells down there.

Sugar Also Takes n Tumble
A Heavy Close.
New York, November 27. A quiet stock
market was generally expected today and as
far as the general list was concerned this ex
pectation was realized, the trading being of tbe
retail order, while a large number of brokers,
having gone away over the holiday, there was
a slim attendance at the board. There were
the usual few exceptions, but the stocks of tbe
regular list offered little feature throughout
the day, and fluctuations were on the same
plane with the dealings, being confined to even
a smaller range than usual.
Tho reports from the great fire at Lynn,
Mass., had a depressing effect at the opening,
and first Drices were in most cases sliehtlv
lower than last evening, and though the list
was remarkably well beld, realization of profits
forced a decline of 3 per cent in Denver and
Fort Worth, bringing the stock down again to
tbe lowest point for a week. Missouri Pacific

and it yielded over 1 per cent. Tennessee Coal 1
shot up with a rusn ana reached still higher
prices, touching 85. but it as quickly receded,
and dropped nearly 5 per cent from that point;
closing at its lowest figure.
This Has all there was to the general market,
interest sin which was completely obscured by
tbe effect of tbe decision rendered yesterday
by the Supreme Court of Illinois In the case of

though the decision does not affect the proper

elect, tbe effect f the news upou the holders of
