South Otnahuh Is a busy place ihcne
days, says an Omaha paper. Duilrg
the week eonslflerably over 10,000 h tg«
were received and slaughtered at that
point. Since March I the packers
have handled 1,135,000 hogs, which ;s
a gain over the corresponding period
or :ast year of 1f!0,000. During the
same period St. Louis has gained 12J •
000. Indianapolis H4.000, Cincinnati
37.000 and the smaller markets In
about the same proportion. Kansas
City, however, is the one exception,
the gain In the number of hogs pack'd
at that point amounting to only 6,000.
while South Omaha has been galnli g
150,000. and rapidly closing up the gap
between third and second place In the
list of packing centers. The reason
for the loss of prestige on the putt cl
Kune is City at u time when nil othei
hog packing points are lib
eral gains is to be found in the operr
lions of the little town down the river
tamillarly known as St. Joe. Since
March 1 there have been puoWed at
that point 5HS*,000 hogs. Of thut
number 300,000 are figured ah having
come from Kansas City territory, and
only about 150.uoo from Nebraska let
rltory. The operatlona of St. Joe In
Itausa* City territory are doing much
to niuullxe the disparity In wealth
amt population between Nebraska and
Kansas, sc that those who are fattiallar
with the business would not be aur
prU* d to see South Omaha win secon I

Nkw York. Nov. ). Nicholas Jack
son of Hackensack, who was sent to
Trenton prison to serve ten years for
causing the death of his 0-ycar-olil son
fjouis, confessed to Sheriff Herring and
Deputy Sheriff Jackson while they
were on their way to Trenton from
Hackensack with the prisoner. On
this information Mrs. Jackson is held
an necesssory to the murder of her
stepson. Here are Jackson's words to
the sheriff:
“My wife, whom I had only recently
married, did not like Louis, my little
boy, and wc had many quarrels about
him. She helped me to plan the mur
der, and I was to put the hoy on the
tracks. I went to Tenneek and stood
near the West Shore railroad track. 1
was afraid to put the youngster on the
tracks aiivg for fear he would get off,
so 1 struck him in the stomach with an
iron holt and that made him uncon
scious Then 1 put him on the track
Just below the crossing und waited for
a train to coine along. When 1 was
convinced that ho was dead I went
home. I fixed up the story about my
leaving the hoy asleep on the hill near
the tracks to save my life. The jury
believed me and found mu guilty of
manslaughter, thinking that Louis
walked on the track and was struck by
a train. I got off dead easy."
