representatives are In Omaha closing
up a deal to take 500,000 bushels for

best market price. This is the largest
transaction in actual wheat that has
ever taken place since Omaha became
a grain market. t

The reason for Minneapolis millers
clamoring- for Nebraska wbeat be;
cams .apparent la, few months -ago
Indications are that the demand will
always continue. Formerly all of the
flour turned out by the Minneapolis
mills was from the hard wheat fields
of Minnesota aud the Dakotas. It
wbs not satisfactory, being too
light and chaffy. It needed something
to give it more body.
There was a problem .to lbe' solved
and seeking a solution the mi Iters tried
mixing their northern wheat 'with a
softer variety. They bought wbeat
east and west, but none of it filled
the bill until they got.that from- Ne
braska. The Nebraska wheat- they
discovered was just what they want
ed, for when blended with the hard It
makes a flour that was looked uuon
as perfection itself. As a result; it 'is
contended that in the future Nebraska
wheat will always have a market at
the Minneapolis mills, where It will
