Cattle prices declined rapidly tin
tirst half of last week, although re
ecipts were below normal, but there
were signs of strength Thursday and
Friday, with positive advances on she
stuff. The unsettled trade in meats
caused packers to bold their orders
down to a minimum last wee,thereby
discounting somewhat the effects of
the reduced run, and tlie general mar
ket closed the week with a net ipss
of la to 3a cents. Today the supply
m (1,0011 head, smaller even than on
hut Monday, and if became the buy
er's turn to show anxiety. Every
body was riding hard as long as the
apply lasted and prices today were
10 to 1.5 higher on ail kinds. Most
dealers believe that the boycott has
spent its for. e, although caution in
marketing is still urged, as buyers
can use tile boycott as a boar argu
ment for a while yet, which would be
ioiue more legitimate the larger tie
run. Nothing prime is here today,

TO DRAIN THE NEMAHA.
PetitioVi For Articles of Incorporation
For Drainage District Filed.
A petition has been filed in the of
fice of tlie clerk nf tiie district court
fur liic incorporation of a drainage
i district comprising some lti.000 acres
of land in southern Otoe and northern
Johnson counties. The signers rep
i resent holdings of 10,000 acres and
are much enthused over the prospect
of getting the district laid out so the
Nemalm river can be straightened
md, doing away with the disastrous
floods which, about every year, ruin
ic crops on I le lowlands
(Jeorge If. lleinke, of Ihis city, is
attorney for live petitioners and says
that ihere is hut little opposition to
ihe project. The ditch will start on
the county line near Tnlmage, thence
north for a mile or so, striking the
non h fork of the Nemaha and tlienee
up Wilson cre« k to within a ft w mlh
of Syracuse. The ditch on the south
branch will cross over into Johnson;
county coming about three miles!
W'-st of Cookv Tributary ditches will;

$1,108.41 Clear Profit on Twenty-two

$1,108.41 profit on tienty-two sows

Mr. Thiessen is a methodical farrn

the average, vet lie says he hopes to

We are reproducing his figures.which j
will certainly lie i t i ■ : eg at least i
to those who are engaged in the hog)
In Nov ember. I Mis. he bought twen

average of 193% pounds each, and
brought. $8.40 ' per hundred, or
$1,608.05 over and above the cost of
transportation and other expenses
connected with the shipment. He
then sold the original twenty-two sows
for $15.00 each. But here are his
