Pendleton, Ore., Dec. 3. That prices
for sheep and wool will be as high or

wns the statement made by C.
H. Shurte, of Chicago, probably the
biggest sheep buyer in the country.
This winter there aro 500,000 less sheep
being fed in the United States than a
year ago, he says, and the shortage
will tend to elevate prices. There will

In tho mutton trnfle there has been a
shortage of 2,000,000 head for slaughter
during the year, and this shortage, he
says, was due to a senricity of sheep
and not to the sliipment!i abroad.
