RESIGNS FROM TEACHING FORCE
From Thursday's Pally.
This morning Miss Gretchen Mac-
prang departed for her home at
Lincoln, having tendered to the
board of education of the city, her
resignation as teacher of domestic
pcience In the high school. Miss
Macprang has been a member of the
teaching force for the past two
years and a most valued member of
the faculty but owing to the fact
that she will soon assume a new
position in domestic science in her
own home she has been compelled
to resign. At the close of the last
term Miss Macprang declined a re
election to her position but was
finally prevailed upon to continue
until other arrangements could be
made by the board of education but
as they have been unable to secure
another teaCher for the position.
Miss Macprang has been unable to
give her services further to the
schools. The departure of this pop
ular member of the faculty will be
much regretted by the pupils of the
high school and the board of educa
tion but they join in wishing her
success and hap'piness in her new
home of which sne is soon to be

From Saturday Daily.
County Judge Beeson, whose repu

traveled far and wide over the con
fines of our- fair state, has had a
sudden burst of business in the mat

his efficient work has made four
hearts happy. Yesterday afternoon
David Stuart and Mrs. Mattie Pick
ering, both from the vicinity of Wy
oming, Otoe county, called at the
court bouse and secured the neces
sary permit to wed and requested
Judge Beeson to perform the cere
mony that was to make them as one
and the Judge accommodated them
in his usual pleasing manner. '
This morning John Deroy Banks
and Miss Marie A. Skola, both of
Omaha, visited the license depart

and secured their desired license to
permit them to enjoy the Journey of
life together and were also united

CHICAGO MARKET UNDER $12
FOR FIRST TIME SINCE EARLY
IN THE WAR.
RIGGER DECLINE ANTICIPATED
Omaha Price Leads Eastern Markets,
Contrary to Former
From Thursday's Dally.
A further sharp drop of from 75
cents to $1 per hundred weight in
the price of hogs was recorded on
the principal live stock markets yes
terday. The drop brought the Omaha
price down to quotations of from
$12 to $12.50 and tlie Chicago mar
ket went under $12 for the first
time since early in the war.
If applied to the annual produc
tion of hogs in Nebraska, a dollar
drop means a loss of approximately
$8,000,000 to Nebraska hog raisers.
Chicago market experts ascribe
the high cost of feed as a chief
reason for unusually heavy market
ing of hogs, which has demoralized
the market. The drop today was ac
companied by pronounced weakness
in the prices of grains and provi
Expects Further Drop.
R. C. Howe, general manager of
Armour & Co. in Omaha, disagrees-
with the Chicago analysis and pre
dicts still lower, . prices, probably a
$10 figure, before many weexs have
passed. . j
"The simple fact is that the price
of hogs has been abnormally high."
said Mr. Howe. "If the packers
have made a mistake, it has been in
paying too high prices. These
prices are bound to tumble.
"We have a big corn crop, of good
quality. That will make cheaper
feed. With $1.25 corn, we should
have $10 hogs.
"The present .drop in price is due
to the fact that, raisers realize the
fact that the price has been abnor
mally high'and that it is likely to go
even lower than at present. They
are rushing to get under the wire.
"Cattle are cheap now, compared
with other live stockand I do not
think that they will drop as a reflec
tion of the drop in hogs."
The Omaha price continued today
to be higher than that of Chicago,
this having been, the case generally
for several "weeks. Until recently,
the Chicago market was uniformly
higher, due to the additional freight
charge, but this has been absorbed
lately. This is further proof ac
cording to Mr. Howell, that the buy
ers do not mean to continue to meet
the high price.

such an extent that it is now one of
the most perfect machines of Its
kind on the market and recognized
by all as the most economical -and
laboring saving device that has
been perfected for the manufacture
of the popular ice cream cone. That
the machine is undoubtedly the best
on the market is demonstrated by
the fact that it is universally in de
mand on the market today and the
demand for the machine is gr;ater
than can be supplied. In . the
factory now they are preparing
three of these machines for ship
ment to Manchester, England, the
great manufacturing center of that
nation where they will be used in
the manufacturer of the ice cream
cones for the English people. The
plant here Is also completing a con
tract for ten of the machines to be
delivered to one of the largest plants
at Kansas City, Missouri, where sev
eral of the machines had been sold
previously and where they made a
great saving in material and labor

The specialization in the food
saving machinery which has been
a study of Mr. Sharp has also re
sulted in the production of a food
cutting and milling machine that is
destined to work wonders in the
production of stock food at a very
low cost and in a manner that in
sures to the farmer and the stock
raiser the most intense form of
food stuff at smaller cost and at the
saving of space and labor that is
required of stock food in its origi
nal form. This machinery consists
of the food cutting and meal ma
chines that takes the common corn
stalk and reduces it to the most in
tense form of food for stock of all
kinds. The cutting machine saves
every particle of corn stalks or al
falfa and does away with the loss
of a great deal of the valuable food
that. Is lost in the old methods of
handling as there are no particles
rejected by the cutting machines
but are all used up in the prepara
tion of the food. When hay, alfal
fa or corn stalks are used in their
original forms for stock food they
require much space for storing and
also a great deal of loss caused by
the methods of handling and there
fore it is a more costly process to
the farmer and stock raiser. With
the special machinery produced by
Mr. Sharp this stock food is prepar
ed In a meal form with the use of
small portions of corn and molasses
