South Omaha , Feb. Ifi. The nccond
storm of this remarkable winter oc
curred this week , and while not HO-

moderate supplies of live stock. The
cattle trade IB moving along smoothly

selling $5.00 to $5.50 , but the bulk of

and prices are well maintained with
favorable prospects during this month

Its upward march , with prlcoa well up

Sheep Sheep and lamb receipts
have been moderate this week. The
quality of the stuff offered has been
as poor as any time this season. Good
stuff sells readily , at prices steady

$7.00 to $7.15 , yearlings $5.85 to $0.15 ,
wethers $5 75 , owes $5.00 to $5.110.
The common and medium grades are
more neglected by mutton buyers than
at any time. Feeders are buying a
few , but the prices they aio paying
are so low , that there Is not much
probability of the shipper making any
thing out of his feeding.
Wo do not look for any IncreaBO In
shipments for this week's market , nor
very much Improvement In values ,
but there Is a good prospect of heav

Wo advise sorting stuff closely , and
shipping only good stuff , unless you
will bo satisfied with feeder prices.

LITTLE LORD FAUNTLEROY.
daman Stock Company Closes Three
"Little Lord Fauntleroy" as pre
sented at the Auditorium last evening
by the daman Stock company proved
a very entertaining diversion. As a
play It abounds In clean , wholesome
humor with nothing strained or un
natural in the plot. It points a moral
Inconspicuously In the reformation
which Uml Fauntleroy , as a boy full
of love and kindness , effects upon his
crabbed old grandfather. In fact it
fultllls Its purpose of amusing without
tiring , most excellently.

of Minna , the adventuress , introduced

comic Valentino which has come to be
the medium of thn children only. Bo-
yon il a few comic valentlnoB there are
mighty few valentines In Norfolk to

fifteen cents. Even of the finer grades
there are not HO very many left In the

The BaloB of the higher priced mis
sives of love and remembrance are an
Indication of the hold which the day
IB taking upon the older persons.
Their offerings are not those of paper
lace and gilt , that they know In their
younger days , but more artiste offer-
IngH of silk and satin and celluloid
with the verses and the decorations
painted In by hand. Each carrier had
a load of the larger packages with
these In them this morning. One ol
the freaks in the mall , while perhaps
not Intentional , had a most pathetic
note of humor In H. It was a heart-
shaped box , whoso contents could be
easily guessed. On the outside wau
written besides the address , "Fragile
Please do not crush. " There was no
Indication no to whether It was n mcs
sago only to the postal clerks qr to the
person , who was to receive It.
There were also any number of par
ties given as offerings to SL Valentine
tine and nt each one the Idea of the
mlsBlvo of love was carried out In the
decorations , the programs or some oth
er feature of the entertainment. Bui
these were but slight Indications o
the general acceptance of the day com

Center Register ! .There's . a town
called Center and It has a hotel , barer -

Of course , It has other business Insti
tutions , but those mentioned are vor.y
illicit In evidence all ever the United
States , as the marked copies of dally
ind weekly papers and the letters tele-
; runs ; and telephone messages which
invo been pouring In this week will
testify. And wo wish to call the at
tention of business men generally to
the fact that your town and nil It con-
.ulns would be an unknown quantity
but for the little weekly newspapers
which go forth from week to week to

ence. You may bo sure that your an
nouncements In their columns will be
seen and read , though they may not
make the stir that did the following

dles of Center that Thursday will bo

A special service for children was

The adult members of the congrega
tion had not boon Informed of what
was coming. Rev. Mr. Pitkln mounted

service would open with the "Blblo

After a few trials the children had
the "Blblo yell" down pat , and gave
it with true rhythm and proper em

The yell was repeated as often as
an excuse could bo found throughout
Speaking of the matter today , Rev.
Mr. Pitkln said :
"Tho Blblo yell roused the Interest
of the children and fixed In their minds
the parts of Scripture referred to.
There probably Is not one person ,
young or old , who attended the ser
vice who has not looked up the chapters -
tors and verses named n the yell , and
I assure you If they were read with
care every ono has been benefited.
"I am not sure that the yell will bo

school service. That will depend
largely upon the sentiment of those
