Tho Minneapolis &. Omaiin, whoso

and for tho year ending In Juno, 1909,
when all freights and passengers wero
moved at the lower rates, $1,899,50.
Tho gross ' earnings In Nebraska
amounted to $1, 725,298.10 for the 1907
period, and $1,817,728.12 for 1909. Tho
passenger earnings for the 1907 period
amounted to $122,513.83, and for 1909,
$488,:i8l.53. The total cost of oper
ation amounted to $1,199,581.95 In 1907
nnd for 1909, $1,231,933.21. Tho busi

for the years ending Juno 30, 1907 and
June 30, 1909, a year when tho lower
freight rates and passenger rntes wero
not In force and a year when they
were In force, shows that tho net earn

creased except the Missouri Pacific.

Its earnings per tulle from $2,199.71 to

creased from $1,087.17 to $1,138.02, but

TAFT !i& NO AID
TO MAKE FEDERAL BENCH AP
NOT TO CONSULT THE CABINET-
Told His Appointed Advisers That
He Would Seek Counsel In
All Matters Except
Washington, I). C There Is ono
striking difference between the meth
ods of President Taft and those of
his predecessor, nnd it is In regard to
appointment of members of the fed
"I shall consult with yon gentle
men," said President Tart at one of
the (list meetings of his cabinet,
"about all matters of Importance to
the udmlnlbtratlon save one; the ap
pointments to the federal bench. That
I shall attend to alone on my own re.
The cabinet wns more than willing
and the president's policy was genet
ally Indorsed His long service on the
bench was considered the badge of
his superior qualification to perforin
this duty entirely alone.
The piesldent did not Intend to bar
hlmseir rrom the privilege or consulta
tion with his cabinet members, ir he
so desired, but he did make plain that
the responsibility and the authority
would not bo divided in nny wise.
And In the matter or the pending
supreme bench appointment, It is said,
ho has adhered strictly to this rule.
He had not laid the matter before
the cabinet, and It Is not known that
thus far he had discussed It with nny
member of the cabinet. The fact that
ho had asked no counsel or advice
has added strength to the Impression,
now entertained as frankly inside as
outside the cabinet, that Judge Hor
ace If. Lurton of Nashville Is to be
named Tor the place.
Reyond this, the understanding Is
that the president has a waiting list
for supreme bench appointments, long
enough, nt least to (111 all the vacan
cies that aro likely to arise during his
administration. Indeed, people closest
to the piesldent suspect that the presi
dent knows exactly whom he would
appoint, and in what order, ir there
should bo rour or lho vacancies. It
Is believed by 'many that Attorney
General Wlckersham Is tho second
mnn on tho list, and Lloyd W. Row
ers, solicitor or the United States, Is
very generally placed third.
Quite the reverse of this was the
method of President Roosevelt, who,
not being a lawyer, nnd being espe
cially anxious about judicial appoint
ments, took much advice about them.
The Taft program Is similar to that
or President Harrison, who is regard
ed as having made, on the whole, tho
best judicial selections of nny presi
dent In a generation. He didn't reel
that he needed advice, and he seldom
asked It, In this matter. The Har
rison Judicial selections were as gen
erally commended ns thoso of Roose
velt havo beon criticised.
Food Products In Demand.
SL Paul, Minn.- While not srirely
agreeing with the recent statement
Issued by Rradstrcets which Intimates
that tho consumption of food products
in this country has caught up with
production. James J. Hill said Friday
the point has been nearly ienched.
"It Is a matter which should bo
seriously considered," said Mr. Hill.
"Our present balance of trade Is an
Indication that the margin between
our production and consumption is be
coming narrower. Look nt tlio figures
(en years ago and then look at them
now. Our enormous balance of that
time has dwindled away. We are not
exporting foodstufTs as we were. Wo
are consuming them ourselves. "Tho
reason for the Increase in price tills
year over last year is u matter of
inipply and demand."

LOST REGISTERED LETTERS
FOUND IN QUEER PLACE
Missed From a Mangled Mall Bag,
They are Recovered From
It docs not ulwnytfafollbw "that" tho
disappearance of, . rcKUUercd , mnil
'packages indicate-' a robbery of the
mnil. This was demonstrated on
The Overland Limited train No. 2
Friday, November Ctli, when a pack
age of flvo registered letters from
Schuyler disappeared between that
point nnd Omaha.
The recovery of (he lost package
was ns strange as Its disappearance.
Tho Schuyler pouch 1b picked up
from a crane by means of a pouch
catcher as the train passes. This
pouch catcher Is attached to the mall
car and hooks onto tho pouch sus
pended from the crano as tho train
passes. In this particular Instance
tho pouch cntcher did not make a
good catch and the pouch fell under
the wheels of tho train and was cut
In two. The mall was scattered along
tho track for n considerable distance,
but the live registered letters, which
were In n pneket, could not be found
when the other mall was picked up
The Impression at onco prevailed that
the registered package had been found
and kept by some one and It was ro
ported as lost.
Postofllce Inspector h. A. Thomp
son was started out to Investigate. II i
first visit was to Council Hluffs to
make Inquiries or the postal clerks
on the car, and scarcely had he
reached there when he received word
that tho registered package had been
found by the car cleaner resting snug
ly on the trucks under the dining
car, where it had been blown or
thrown when the mail pouch was
(lung under the wheels nt Schuyler.
That the package was not injured
In tho slightest, nor jarred from its
position on the trucks, 1b simply nn
other tribute to (ho Union Pacific's
unsurpassed roadbed aud perfect track.

That Single Thought.
You've heard the old story of sweet
wedded blips, of tho two hearts that
flutter as one, aud tho two souls single
thought sealed with -a kiss, and have
wondered, no doubt, how 'twas done.
As n wise one who was by experience
