The price of beef to the consumer generally speakingr. and all over the country is higher than com- mon while the price on foot is low and present prospects are for still lower figures. This can only be explained satisfac- tory by the rush of stock to market. Among the reasons for this state of affairs bad for the stockmen has been the con- gested condition of the central and southern Texas ranges; the carrying over of "old stuff" and the desperate efforts made by the owners of this class of cat- tle to unload on the markets at some price. These conditions have over supplied the natural demands and buyers taking ad- vantage of glutted markets as they always do has had ey.. thing t3 'iVh'tbT depressed -prices.
