A United States government report
Just Issued, shows that for every 100.
000 residents of Nebraska in 192C
71.9 were In penal Institutions. The
figures for the country as a whole
was 79. .1. The actual number in Ne
brai.ka prisons was 9C.000.
Viewed In the light of other years,
however, Nebraska's record is not hi
favorable. Or more favorable, accord
ing to the standpoint of tin observer.
Average Goes Up.
In 1904 the figure per 100,000 was
but 29.2. Since that time the average
for the nation as a whole has gone
up, too, of course, but not so rapid
ly. It advanced from 68 in 1904 to
79 in 192C.
Compared with those of Its near
, neighbors. Nebraska's record takes
on new significance.
The Index figure in Kansas, for In
stance, was 146.7 In 1926, for Iowa
84.3, for Missouri 98.2, for South Da
kota C7.7 and Tor Colorado 105.9.
Prom 1923 to 1926, the report
states, there was a marked decrease
In the proportionate number of male
prisoners convicted of homicide. A
slight Increase was noted In the num
ber sent up for rape.
There has been little change in
the number of women held for homi
cide, while the number held for as
sault has dropped. Hut in the mat
ters of forgery, larceny, liquor and
drug law violations, and sex offenses,
the totals have become greater.

inches deep and IS inches apart and
Btick of dynamite was used in
each "hole. Then one hole was capped

to them In a small box on one end
of the feeder.
When 100 pounds of barley cost
the same as 30 pounds of corn, the
barley will make as cheap gains on
fatening hogs as the com. If barley
is fed, however, it should be ground
coursely, and the Trinity Mixture or
other protein supplement added to it.
When the hogh are on pasture, the
correct proportions are 95 pounds of
ground barley and 5 pounds of Trin
ity Mixture. When the bogs are In a
dry lot, 92 pounds of ground barley
and 8 pounds of the mixture is a
better ration. The mixing can b:
done by shoveling the ft od back and
