Tho markot will probably bo good

show any disposition to bid lively

In addition to tho above market
letter wo clip tho following inter-
view from a Kansas City papor of
"If wo can got as good pricos
for our uraBB sheop this season as
wo aro gotting for tho wool wo
will havo no roason for com-
plaint" said A. J. Crawford of
San Angolo ToxaB who camo up
Saturday to Bpond a few days
looking tho shoep market over.
Air. Crawford wintered about
0000 sheep and is bcatod right in
ono of tho best grass sheop dis-
tricts in tho South wost. "The
shearing Boason is almost over"
ho added "and tho sheop all over
that country are in lino condi-
tion. At present tho wool uvor-
ages about S2 to the sheep which
ib the highest prico paid for wool
in twenty von re. The Bpring was
also very favorablo for lambing
and tho por cent savod was very
largo. Now if tho prico of grass
muttons is good enough ior us to
ship there will bo a largo run
from that country but if not
many sheop will bo hold back."

DEMAND FOR BEEVES
Steers arc Scarce In New Mexico
and Buyers are Plentiful
Better Prices to Come.
Fort Worth May 7. "In com-
pany with northern buyers I havo
carefully covered the whole of tho
Pecos valley road in search of
Bteors" said E. W. Martindell
trnvoling freight and passenger
agent of that road who wus horo
from Iiib Amunllo headquarters
"Today there oxists a condition
in tho rango country that is al-
most without precedent Not a
single steer 2 years old and up
can lie bought along the Pecos
Valley in New Mexico and this
same condition oxists south of tho
Pecos. What fow Bteors of two
! years and over can bo found in
this section havo oithor been soul
or havo been contracted for.
Steor buying is strictly a Punhun-
dlo proposition from now on.
Tho market is strong with u de-
cided upward tendency.
"That a scarcity of beef cattlo
for groator than is apparent to
those who havo only casually
looked into tho matter think ex-
ists cannot bo doubted. Tho in-
ovitablo law of supply and de-
mand is forcing up tho prico of
steor cattlo. Thoro aro twonty
buyers in the field where there is
ono seller. Tho outlook for a
change is not bright for tho buy-
ers The supply of yearling steers
is anything oxcopt big and the
outlook for tho calf crop is none
too good. By tho lowest sort of
calculation it will bo at least
three years boforo the rango soc-
tion along tho Pecos Valley will
havo oven a respectable size stoor
supply. If tho present demand
for fcteor stuff continues it will
serve as a stimulus to raise more
"Conditions that prevailed dur-
ing the Amarillo convention havo
not changed materially sinco tho
convention. Noarly all the sell-
ers got rid of their surplus hold-
ings during this convention.
Those buyers who must havo cat-
tlo or else abandon the range
lands thoy own or control now
roalizo that whon thoy passed up
tho s tu IT offorod at Amarillo on
account of tho pricos demanded
boing more than thoy thought the
cattle was worth thoy pasBod up

When the two touring cum stopped
In t lio shade of .some cork trrcs and tho
hampers woro being rnnsnrlicd for
lunch f'hntlwlck managed to convince
Miss Norton that tho view from tho top
of (ho rorky llttln hill by tho roadside
was well worth tho climb. Together
thoy nseended tho winding footpnth
thnt wound Us wny up tho hill nud
stood on tho summit looking across tho
brown flelds of Tuscany to tho faint
blue lino of water In tho distance.
Close nt hand was a clump of stunted
ollvo trees and beneath the trees was
thf shrine of somo Bnlnt. 1hoy had
been on tho summit of the hill but a
fow minutes whon a pcnsnnt woman
came filing up tho path and with
scarcely a glance nt tho two Americans
knelt before tho sbrlno nnd began to
mutter rapid prayers while sho Hcftly
lingered n rosary.
Thoy watched her In silence; Miss
Norton with n smile of understanding
nnd quick sympathy and Chadwlck
with that loolc of sardonic complacency
that men of bis typo affect In tho pres-
ence of religious devotions.
Iter beads told tho woman shambled
down the path again tho bright ker-
chief about her head making a moving
bit of color against tho brown of tho
"Her prayers seem to bo a sort of
innchino made product" Chadwlck ob-
served. The girl shook a finger nt him.
"Don't scoff" she said.
Cbndwlck shrugged his broad shoul-
ders. "I'd bate to bo nn Interpreter of Ital-
ian In celestial realms" said he. "Did
you hear how she reeled them off? I
couldn't make out a word of It."
"I didn't try to understand" said
she. "I was thinking of tho plctur-
csquoness of It."
"It did havo Its color" bo admitted
and pointing to tho shrine continued;
"I wonder what saint thnt Is? Tho
tip of his nose l.s gone nnd bo seems
rather weather beaten."
Tho girl laughed lu splto of her ef-
forts to maintain u grave expression.
"Aren't you ever serious?" hho said
chldlugly. "Don't such tilings ever
Impress you as rather solemn?"
"I confess to nn undue sense of tho
Incongruous" said ho. "Still I think
It applies largely to externals. Tho
spirit of the tiling Its underlying
meaning does Impress mo tremen-
dously. I'm very much In sympathy
with theso shrines. Indeed I main-
tain one myself."
Tho girl eyed him narrowly. Sho
wns vainly trying to fathom tho Im-
port of his words.
"Where Is this shrlno of yours?" sho
"Wherever I am" said he.
"Do you ever worship before It?" she
"Many times dally" he declared.
"I didn't rcallzo you were In Bym-
pathy with anything of tho kind" sho
"Didn't you?" ho asked cheerfully.
"Well I'vo mnuy excellent Qualities as
"I'd like to hear about this shrine"
said sho. "A pagan so devout must
certainly appeal to fiiat abnormal
sense of the Incongruous you claim for
"When I seek my shrlno I'm not a
pagan" he declared. "It's not a
shrine like this. It's a mental shrlno
and In It I havo placed my patron
"What sort of saint?" sho demand-
ed with a hint of Incredulity lu her
Chadwlck looked at her with a de-
liberate gaze. Ho was smiling as ho
"A very goutlo saint that any mau
might bo proud to worship; a saint
with brown hair and dark eyes and
all the beauty and goodness of tho
unlvcrso stamped on her faco; a saint
thnt Is enshrined In tho heart of every
honest right minded man; in simpler
words tho Ideal womnn."
The girl looked at him and colored
"And that's your vaunted shrlno?"
"It's not ns picturesque as this one
bore" sold sho.
"It Is to me" ho doclnred. "Anyway
tho mero worshiping at tho shrlno has
mndo a different man of me."
Sho looked across tho brown fields.
"Do you say Italian prayers to your
saint?" sho nsked.
"I'd say good English ones If I
dared" ho replied. "Thank goodness
my saint has not been transplanted to
spiritual abodes as yet. nut I only dnro
utter Ineffectual petitions to her Imago
In tho shrine."
"Why?" sho demnnded.
"I'm afraid a direct Intercession to
her might result In her discouraging
ray worship" said he.
"Perhaps not" sho said softly look-
ing toward tho bluo thread of water.
Ho took a step toward her but sho
darted past him nnd began to descend
'.'Come" sho called to him; "they'll
havo lunch ready under tho cork trees."
ITo ran down tho path and caught her
"Let mo say my rosary to tho real
saint" ho pleaded. "Tho Imago In tho
Bhrlno Is after nil rather unsatisfac-
tory." "Perhaps tho real saint will be" she
"I'll risk It" ho laughed and nrm
