LEIGHTY, Manager The ear Stark Stark Year Book 1910 for 1910 is ready to mail. It will be sent to any person interested in fruit-growing on receipt of 7 cents to cover postage. The Stark Year Book for 1910 represents an entirely idea in nurserymen's literature--it is a work of art as well as a catalogue of Stark Nursery products.

Within its covers are 32 full-page illustrations of fruits and flowers, representing 175 varieties, done in four colors, and exactly reproducing mature. 84 pages are devoted to descriptions, prices, and records. Stark Delicious, the apple that has revolutionized orchard planting and established a new standard of apple values (selling at $10.00 per bushel box this year); Stark King David, another apple of wondrous quality and merit; Stark King Philip, a hardy black grape of California grape quality, and dozens of the very best things in the horticultural world are fully described, illustrated, and priced. To any one planting one tree or many, of fruits or ornamental, this book is of inestimable value- -a horticultural text-book-a guide to proper selection. Stark trees have stood the supreme test of actual planting for 85 years -they are the yard-stick by which all other nursery products are measured- they are the first choice of this country's most successful orchardists.

The success of the orchard is dependent on the kind and quality of tree planted. Stark varieties are the best of the best. Our record of 85 years of successful selling is a positive guarantee of tree quality. Before you decide to buy, send 7 cents for the Stark Year Book -do it today before the edition is exhausted.

Rickart. Kansas City Stock Yards, June 13, 1910. Rather light receipts of cattle for the past month or more have prevented packers from storing up much dressed meat in coolers, and when the demand from consumers began to increase two weeks ago, the reserve supply was soon exhausted, and killers have been forced to exhibit anxiety for supplies recently. Receipts from Native and Western territory con tinue moderate, and the flux of cattle from quarantine territory now coming to market is not large enough, previous to today to relieve the strain. The market has, therefore, made fairly good gains each of the past two weeks, the advance last week 25 cents on best fed steers, and 25 to 50 cents on butcher grades.

Stockers and feeders remained about steady, as present prices are one dollar higher than a year ago, and buyers hold some skepticism about cattle paying out at prevailing prices. The supply today was above expectations, 19,000 head here, half of which are in the quarantine division. Best steers are steady to a shade lower, account of scarcity, top sales today at $8.45, $8.35 and $8.20. Medium cattle are off 10 to 25 cents today, bulk of steers at $6.40 to $7.50, plain light steers downwards to $5.50, cows at $3.50 to $6.50, heifers $4.50 to $7.60, bulls $3.75 to $5.90, calves $4.50 to $8.25, stockers 84 00 to $5.80, feeders $5.00 to $6.25, fed Colo- The Clothing Store We have lately re-arranged our Store, and now have one of the best Clothing and Furnishing Stores in this part of the State.

BECK, IOLA, KANSAS. rado steers $6.25 to $8.00. After considerable fluctuating hogs closed last week in the same notch as close of previous Heavy weights lost some prestige during the week, and lights seem to be slated to take the lead in the near future. The run is 9000 here today, liberal elsewhere, and packers seized the chance to enforce a decline, ranging from 10 to 15 cente, top hogs at 9.32%, which is only 124 cents under Chicago top today, bulk of sales here $9.20 to $9.30. Shipping demand is good, as many small plants heretofore closed for a season, are opening up, having decided that no money can be made by not running.

Competition is therefore better, and packers who talked of putting up their droves shortly at nine have revised their ideas during the last week, Sheep and lambs made big gains last week, and closed and goats adding 75 cents to $1.00 to the value, and lambs gaining 50 to 75 cents. Packers bought goats freely, the first they have purchased for several weeks. Run is 8000 today, market a shade lower, although spring lambs reached $9.60 today, a new high figure recently for them. Shorn lambs are worth $8.00 to $8.50, yearlings up to $7.75, wethers $5.50 to $6.40, ewes $5.00 to $5.75, Texas muttons today at $5.00 to $5.75, goats to killers today at $4.40, brushers worth around $3.50.
