Local dealers explain this flagrant
neglect of Omaha from the fact that

longer duration and more acute in the!

Thus the first sugar from this year a (
crop of beets Is rushed to tho oast to
check the pinch there. .
Among the Jobbers and grocers in
Omaha, howovor, there is a feeling
that tho situation will now bo rapidly
rollovcd. For some days many res
taurants have taken tho sugar bowls
from the tablos, and have sot them
out to a guost only when ho ordered
a coroal or some other food which
normally requires sugar to make It
palatable. VVhon coffeo is served the
waitor asks the guost If ho cares for
sugar. If ho doos tho waitor brings,
ono or two lumps on a little 'plato.
Most storoB lfavo limited customers
to 25 cents worth of sugar, and somo
havo on cortaln days limited them to
10 conta worth. Today, however, Hay.

30 conta worth to a cuBtomor.

Governor Neville has revised the

all aro asked to abstain trom eating
meat or wheat foods. This Is-to get
Nebraska Into lino with tho rest of the
country under tho requost from the
national food administrator that all
voluntarily observe ono day each
week on which no meat will be con
sumed and one on which thoy will eat
no wheat product.' It Is not intended
that any should fast on these days,
only that they uso somo substitute for
tho Xoods to be conserved. Roiteration
of tho argument In favor of this saving
is warranted by tho importance of tho
need. Wheat and meat must bo had
