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, l> I si corn off red going at $6.65. bulk of steers $5,10 to $0.15, l ows lit $5 00 to $5.25, heifers $3.50 to $5.75, (ill s $5.75 to $.50.

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.

REMARKABLE RECORD. $1,108.41 Clear Profit on Twenty-two Sows in One Year. $1,108.41 profit on tienty-two sows in one year seems almost like a fairy story, yet that is a record that our worthy fellow citizen, Hon. John P. Thlessen of Jansen is prepared to substantiate. Mr. Thiessen is a methodical farrn I r and carefully keeps a debit and < redit account on all the stock he handles, which enables him to tell what department of the farm is pay ing him tlie best. While the ease in question lias | yielded him considerably better than | the average, vet lie says he hopes to do as well m xt year, provided every body in the country does not go to ing hogs after r ading this Item. 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) business. In Nov ember. I Mis. he bought twen ty two brood sows. He had unusually! good luck with tin offspring of tltese sows which contributed very mater-! •ally to the profits of the venture. . In April these sows had 17ft pigs, of 1 Hi se I.'i! survived, or an average of j rly . • a pi - to n sow, Kereiiilj tie shipped a ear load, containing 102 ef young hogs to the St. Joe markets. These hogs weighed on aa 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 $15.00 each. But here are his figures: Expenditures. 22 old sows .$ 360.00 2,060% bushels of corn .... 1,055.71 One boar. 18.50 Shorts and other feed. 164.65 Labor in feeding same.. .. 143.00 Coal . 12,00 Total.$ 1,753.86 Receipts Sale of boar.$ 20.22 Twenty-two old sows. 418.00 Five hogs butchered worth., 0 Carload j oung hogs sold.. i ,fio - 05 46 young sows on hand .... 736.00 Total.$2,862.27 TaKtng the expenditures from ilils total it will be seen that Mr. Thiessen lias realized the very hand some sum of $1,108.41 clear profit. If any one in Jeff* run or surround ing counties can beat this record, we would like to hear it, and until ueh time as we do, we shall award Mi.
