er Best steers here brought
$8.50. Receipts were 8UU0 head,
and packer buyers were out eai-
ly tor cattle to start killmu
gangs with, there having been a
close cleanup last week, as re-
ceipts were h*ht alter Tuesday.
Buyers were in a wilting, not
to say anxious mood, and the
predicted rise in cattle values in
the next thirty or sixty days, es-
timated at around a dollar pel
cwt. in some quarters, appeals
more logical than it dul last
week. Receipts were 8000 head
here, considerably less than on
recent Mondays. Good to choice
beef steers sell at *7.75 to «^>0,
medium to common kinds so
to $7.50, western fed steers ® •
to $8.25, cows $5.50 to *V5(K
heifers $b.75 to $8.50. v*als *8 to
$10.50. Quarantine receipts ol
cattle continue very light, some
9b3 lbs, steers here today from
Wagoner at $b.90. In stockers
and feeders there has been no
change in prices since a week
ago. A larger percentage of the
supply runs to beef cattle at this
season, and the stockers and
feeders find ready sale, stock
steers largely at $6.25 to $7. 0,
feeders$6.75 to $7.50 a few cat-
tle up to $7.85, breeding cows
and heifers $5.25 to $6.75
Hog supply was 8000 tO<*ay<

dozen or more loads at the top,

month, and $1.25 per cwt. above

hogs sold up to *7.80, including
a car from the San Iuis Valley.

more here than when loaded on

Insurance Against Sickness
A bill will be introduced in the
Vew York State Legislature this
year tor insurance against sick-
ness. Such insurance as exists
in Germany and Great Britain
will be conpulsorv for all men
and women gainfuliy employed
whose earnings are less than
$1200 per unnum. Two-fifths of
the cost of this insurance is to
be borne by the workers, two-
fifths by their employers, and
one-filth by the state! The bill
provides that in case of illness
the beneficiary or his dependents
shall receive one-half or two-
thirds of his regular wages, as
well as specified medical, pilar

The First Annual Live Stock
Sale in Blaine County
Is announced by the Blaine
County Live-Stock Breeders' As-
sociation. At the meeting on
January 31st,«thisassociation de-
cided to have their Fir*t Annual
Sale next March 24, at Waton-
ga. The object of this Annual
Sale Is to help the farmer who
may have but a few head ol reg-
istered stock to sell to be sure ol
a good market for his surplus
animals and in this way the rais-
ing of pure bred stock will be en-
couraged. The stock is to in-
cluue horses, jacks, cattle, hogs
and sheep. The entry ft* for
horses and jacds is $10 per head,
cattle <17, hogs $2 and sheep $1.
These lees have been made as
low as possib.e and yet give an
income to pay the exoense ol
sale, which is estimated at $400.
To be a success the s.le must be
widely advertised and advertis
tory affections," says the
York medical Journal. which
prges,that some lenal restric-
tion ought to be placed upon the
heating of public gathering pla-
ces, setting for instance, 72 de-
crees Fa.enheit, as the highest

ihis were done ami the law rigid-
ly enforced, the foul air so no-
ticable in many of these places
would cease to be a menace to
health if our modern concep-
tion cf vitiated air is correct.
That outdoor air is more health
ful than indoor air is commonly
asserted. One reason that is
strongly advoeated in support of
this statement is that outdoor
air is cooler and no*, so dry as
