Anderson, Nebras ka agriculture statistician. The av erage number saved per litter was 6.2 pigs as compared to 5.4 a year ago. The number of sows bred for fall litter is 59 per cent greater. The corn belt states show an in crease of 14.5 per cent of spring pigs saved, and a 22.8 per cent increase in litters. The average number of pigs saved per litter was 7 per cent less than last year, or 5.66 pigs per litter compared to 6.1 pigs last spring. The number of sows bred for fall litters is 49.3 per cent greater than last year in the corn belt states.

The number of sows bred for fall litters is 23.5 per cent and 27 per cent greater respectively. If farmers carry out their express ed intentions regarding fall farrow ing9 the total number of spring and fall litters for the year will be 28 percent greater than last year. Last, year the number of fall farrowings represented 28 per cent of the total farrowings for the year while this year they wil probably represent 35 per cent. Stocks of pork products other than lard in storage on May 1 are 33 per cent les3 than the 5-year average and 26 per cent less than a year ago.

CONSERVE PARK ING SPACE ON THE MAIN STREETS For a Time Need System of Parking to Save Space. The work of installing the new sewer and the repaving of Main street is on in full swing at the pres ent time and as the result the space on the street for parking cars is lim ited and brings to the forefront the need of a system that will conserve all the space possible and therefore when parking cars be sure to take up as little room as possible. With each car driver parking close to the next car there can be a great deal of space saved that i3 now alowed to be wasted and which will be very badly needed in the next few months as the street work is being carried out. Chief of Police Barclay will do all possible to aid in the work of mak ing as much use of the amount of space allowed for narkintr as dos- 8ible and with the co-operation of the citizens who drive cars, it is hoped to be able to conserve space for the cars that are desired to park on Main street.

QUALIFIES AS A REAL BOOSTER Johnny Wolff Sells Stndebakers as a Sideline and Makes Practice of Boosting the Town. One of the quiet but effective boosters of the town is our good friend and neighbor, Johnny Wolff, who seems to make it his principal business and only sells Studebakers as a sideline occupation. This year, as well as on numerous past occasions, Johnny is giving a lot of his time to looking after the af fairs of the baseball team and in this is proving most successful. When seats to the Legion's athletic show were placed on sale, Wolff pur chased outright a block of 23 seats, paying for them out of his own pock et, knowing full well that a rain might prevent those he was counting on using them, and thus leave him "in the hole." At the Legion's show last September, Johnny purchased a similar block of fifteen seats. Not only in matters like this, but when it comes to using one of his cars or trucks, the Legion's appeal has always met woith ready response on the part of Mr. Wolff. A few days ago when someone was quibbling about what might hap pen if it rained the night of the show, Johnny countered by inform ing the parties no individual was re ceiving any of the profits, and that a few years later when, the Legion erects a fine community building with the money it is able to make, they wouldn't miss the 2 if they never got to see the show at all. - Mr. Wolff has well earned the sobriquet we hooked onto him at the beginning of this article a quiet. but effective booster. UNDERGOES OPERATION From Thursday's Daily. This morning, Jack, the little son of Mr. and Mrs. J. V. Hatt, was op erated on at the Immanuel hospital for a very severe case of appendicitis with which Jack was taken very sud denly.

Gobeiman of this city have been enjoying dur ing the past week a very happy fam ily reunion of the Iliatt family at Sidney, Iowa, which was held at the home of Mrs. Gohelman's parents.

SEWER GOOD THING Will Do Away with Unsightly Creek Bed in Vicinity of New Tourist Park and Prevent Flood. The proposal of the city council to go ahead with the work cf extending the Washington avenue sewer for some 500 feet from the present mouth of the sewer entrance near the O. K. garage is a move that will be of lasting benefit to the city and especially that section which lies in the immediate vicinity of . the old creek bed. In making the extension the lines will be straightened out so that the sewer will not have to follow tho winding course of the creek and thereby make it easier to convey the flow of the water. The farther the mouth of the sew er is placed away from the main por tion of the city, the less daneer there is of serious overflows, except in extraordinary cases. It will collect the flood waters nearer their source and make an ap preciable difference in the volume of water that frequently overflows over the street in time of very heavy rain fall. Not only should the work of mak ing the present extension be made, but a portion should be completed each year until the old creek is en tirely eliminated from that section of the city. The work is not only a matter of safety to the main por tion of the city but one that will make the property in the vicinity of the sewer much more valuable in every way. MARRIED AT PARSONAGE From Friday's Dally. This 'afternoon at 2 o'clock at the parsonage of the First Methodist church, occurred the marriage of Mrs. Hallie Black and Mr. A.

The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James McKinney of this city, and is well known to a large circle of friends in the city and vicinity. The groom has made his home here for the past year, coming here from Vandalia, and is very popular with a host of friends he has made since coming here. CLEANING AND TAILORING SHOP IS BADLY 'GLEANED Ltgsch, the Tailor, Last Eve ning and Dees Damage. From Friday's Dally. A few minutes after 6 o'clock last evening fire broke out in the clean ing and tailoring shop of Fred Lugsch on the north side of Main street between 4th and 5th street and in a very few minutes did a great deal of damage to the building and the contents. Mr. Lugsch had cross ed the street to the Soennichsen store to make some purchases and as he was returning to the shop he was startled to see a gust of smoke sweep out of the doorway of his place of business and running to the tailor shop found the rear room a sheet of liame. Fire extinguishers were pro cured and an attempt made to check the fire but without success and by this time the fire wa3 gaining head way when the call for the fire de partment was put in. The Fire de partment responded to the call and soou had the fire well under control but not until it had done much dam age. The fire was started by a gas heat er used in the cleaning and drying of clothes and the heater was so lo cated that in a few minutes after the first start of the fire the blaze tpread very rapidly. Mr. Lugsch had the greater part of the suits and dresses he was clean ing and had on hand in a case in the front portion of the establishment and these were not damaged greatly side from water and in a few in stances being scorched and us soon as possible they were removed from he shop. They suffered some from the effects of the smoke that was quite dense in the building. The smoke as well as the water raused some little damage in the barber shop of Percy Dunn, adjoin ing the tailor shop and the work of redecorating that has just recently been completed by Mr. Dunn will have to be fixed over as the result of the fire. Mr. Lugsch was well protected by insurance on his machinery as well ns on the clothing that he had on hand and the building, which is own ed by Mrs. V. V. Leonard, is also protected against the loss by fire. It will require some little amount to put the building back in shape. CLAIMS MONEY DUE HIM HAS BEEN HELD BY BANK Fred G.
