Made Money in Sheep
Last fai Wm. Brandt, who lives
in the country near Nehawka, went
to Omaha and purchased some sheep
they being all ewes, which he put on
feed and as the prices vere not the
best he concluded to keep them long
er, as to have sold them at the time
would have entailed a loss. During
the time when he was waiting for
an improvement of the market the
flock found a number of lambs and
some time since outof the 300 which
he purchased he sold a car load and
just recently sold another car real
izing from the two sme $1,800 and
has now on his farm 73 lambs left
to the good, besides the profit which
he has already made. It is not all
sunshine on the farm but now and
tLen there is a ray of hope.

OF THE NATION
Figures From Washington Indicate
There Will Be Ample Supply
For Needs at Present.
Washington. March 23. The mil
lions of motorists concerned over the
matter of the nation's gasoline sup
ply may experience at least tempor
ary relief in the announcement of
the United States Bureau of Mines
that the stocks of this vital fuel were
increased in the month of January
by 119.000,000 gallons. On Febru
ary 1, there was a reserve of 705,
700,000 gallons, which , is 130,000,
000 gallons more than for the corre
sponding date in 1921. The figures
are rapidly approaching the S00.
000.000 gallon record mark made in
May of last year. Production of gas
oline in January amounted to 444.
G2L7S3 gallons; imports were
250,393 gallons; domestice consump
tion amounted to 22.717.168 gal
lons; exports to 49.S56.310 gallons;
and shipments to insular possessions
675. G59 gallons. Present stocks are
equivalent to fifty days' supply bas
ed on the total daily average con
sumption for 1921. Operative refin
eries in the United States numbered
292 on February 1, with an indicat
ed daily capacity of 1,753,940 bar
rels. Plants running continued to op
erate on an 80 per cent basis.
An increased demand for gas and
fuel oils may be anticipated if the
pending coal strike becomes a real
ity. Stocks of these oils on hand Feb
ruary 1 amounted to 1,319,481,359
gallons. Based on the daily average
domestic consumption for 1921, these
stocks are equivalent to sixty-eight
days' supply. The production of these
oils in January amounted to 858,
110. S77 gallons.
During January the nation's out
put of kerosene amounted to 172,
917,141 gallons, an increase of 2,
500,000 gallons over the preceding
month. The fact that, despite this
increase in production, stocks of lcer-
.osene decreased 13.500,000 gallons
indicates enlivening in the movement
of this product.
Stocks of lubricating oil on 'hand
February 1 were 245.000.000 gal
lons, an increase of 28,465.000 gal
lons over the month previous.
AT JERUSALEM TO FILM
DAVID AND GOLIATH
Jerusalem. March 22. Twenty
stars of the American film world
have arrived in Jerusalem recently
to prepare for the filming of the
Old Testament story of King David.
The big scene in the play is to be
the fight between David and Goliath
which will he staged a few miles
north of te city. Biblical accuracy
is not strictly to be adhered to, since
the scenario provides a love scene
after the battle.
About 5,000 persons are to be em
ployed in the filming of the play
Five thousand Bheep, "1,000 camels.
and 2,000 goats are also to be used.
This will be the first time a pro
duction of any magnitude has been
filmed in the holy land. Apart from
the appropriateness of the country
for the filming of biblical stories, it
is said that Palestine is unsurpass
able for film productions owing,
first to its natural beauty, and sec
ond to the clarity of the atmosphere.

LAW AS INVALID
State Compelled to Defend Against
Ruling of District Judge that
Section Relating to Stills
Whether there is any valid state
law prohibiting the operation of
stills and the possession of mash is
a question the supreme court now
has under consideration. A decision
will not be given for some time.
Arguments on the matter of whether
the legislature blundered and put the
amendment in a place where the con
stitution says it could not be legally
inserted were heard Thursday morn
ing at Lincoln.
At the last session of the legisla
ture the prohibitory law was amend
ed in a number of particulars. As
passed Section 16, which originally
covered only permits for the sale of
ethyl alcohol, was amended so as to
include a prohibition of keeping or
operating a still. Judge Tewell of
Keith county, before whom was brot
John Opela, John Badberg and Adam
Kosmicki, charged wit hviolation of
this section, held that it violated
Section 14 of Article 3 of the new
constitution which provides that no
bill shall contain more than ore sub
ject and the same shall be clearly
expressed in the title. He said that
the amendment was not germane to
the section amended. W. D. Oldham
a one-time supreme court commis
sioner, defended this ruling and at
tacked the method of amending the
old law, which he said had made a
roaring lion out of an innocent
It was the task of Assistant At
torney General Dort to defend the
law. The arguments of both attor
neys were largely technical, but Mr.
Dort laid down the ' broad general
proposition that any number of
amendments may be contained in an
act, however diverse they may be.
so long as they are not inconsistent
with tfie general subject of legisla
tion and have a natural relation to
it. If the title of the original act is
sufficient then the title to the amen
datory act Is also sufficient.
He said that nowhere had the con
stitution required the legislature to
break up the laws they pasB Into
sections. It 'was done merely for
convenience, and was not mandatory.

intoxicating liquors, no part of it
could be held unconstitutional be
cause the new matter may not be
deemed strictly germane to the sub
ject of the section amended. If it be
germane to the subject covered by the
bill it is constitutional.
Mr. Dort further took the position
that- the object of the constitutional
provision cited is to prevent deceit on
the part of a legislator or a legisla
ture, and to make it impossible to
slip into a bill or to amend a law in
such a way that public attention is
not challenged to what is bHng
sought. There is no question of that
sort in this case, he said. The amend
ed lav; contained a large number of
changes and public attention was
directed to all of them.
