This plan of treating catarrh Is somewhat

The only \\uy u > reduce this Inflammation

LARGE INCREASE IN STOCK RECEIPTS

'HcNiiectlve ' Tin 11 IK 1'roNiiceln
for ComluK Year.
The past year has witnessed a very grati
fying Improvement in the volume of busi
ness doing at the South Omaha packing
houses. South Omaha as a packing center
has made rapid strides and has experienced
some phenomenally prosperous years , but
none equal to 1897 , 'though the record ot
might compare favor
some previous years
In 1894 there were phenomenally heavy
marketings of stock and the business ot
the packing houses was pushed way
beyond anything previously reached at this
poln , but it dropped In 1S95 to the lowest
point of the present decade , or elnco the
first few years after the establishment of
the market. The heavy decline of business
was due to natural causes , -which ) had their
influence In every ether department ot man
ufacturing or commerce and which made
1895 a year to 'be ' remembered. With the
advorvt of 1890 there was some Improvement
noticeable , but It was unimportant and the
total volume of business was small aa com
pared with previous years. The coming ol
1897 ushered In better Units for the packing
Industries of the whole country , More people
ple were securing employment and hence
coming Into a | x > altlon to be consumers of
meats , thus creating an Increased demon a
for packing house products.
During the 'past year there has been an ac
tive business nnd packers have been more
concerned as to the supply of live stock
than they have regarding the marketing of
the product. In order to keep pace wJth the
demand South Omaha packers have been
forced to send buyers Into other markets
to patch out the supply of packers ami keep
Bholr hotircs running to the required ca
pacity. At'tho ' same time the active demand
has kent prices on stock up to a point which
has Induced shippers from a wider extent
of territory to come to this market , Large
Increases In receipts from all the western
states are noted consequent upon the urgent
demand for cattle at this point and to the
enterprise of Interested parties In securing
It Is , however , the figures that tell the
story after all , and they show that only

It Is Uafo to Bi > that the packing houses
and Union Stock yards company at South
Omaha cxpcuded $200.000 In repairs and 'Im-
prc'vemfnts during the year 1837. Among
fie packing houses the most extensive Im
provement : ! Imvo been inaJo at the Cudahy
plant , where at loat : 160,000 has been ex
pended durliig the last three months In alter
ations ami extensions. The new sausage
factory , which la now under roof , cost $20,000 ,
excluelvo ot Iho onacblaery which la to lie
placed In 'It ' wiien it Is completed. Two ad
ditional sborles , vavo been added to ' 'he neutral
hougo and the headquarters of the Cuduhy
flro department Iwve born enlarged. Many
improvements have been made at the soap
factory cad new machinery recently pur
chased Is now being placed In this big ten-
story building , ftlany other improvements
Oiave been made during the year , miming trie
cost way up Into the thousancs.
In onnectln with improvements to be
made as soon as the weather will permit the
Cudahys have planned fc'no erection of a
largo two-story brick stable , wnich will cost
at least $10,009. In this stable will be stalls
for forty-flvo horses cud room for as many
wagcns. A largo power building and ex
tensive uiddltlons to tie glycerine and toap
factories have been planned and work on
these will commence early In the spring.
Besides ) the Improvement to me buildings at
the Cudahy plant and In addition to the es
timate of the expense given must be added
the private telephone system which was but
recently installed and which oc-st to the
neighborhood of J 1,000.
It la tiio intention of the Cudahy campany
to expend something like $100,000 during the
spring And summer In oJdltlons , alterations
and repairs. A great deal of new machinery
will bo purchased tifid djnamon to propel
this machlncut will be maintained In a build
ing to be ereWid for the purpose.
Some .time ago the Cud.inys let a con
tract for another artesian well , but t'.ie ex
tremely ccld woither came on. about that time
and It was decided to postpone all such
work ira'Ml ' spring. In connection with this
well there will be built n > 'resorvc-lr ' holding
1,000,000 gallons , which will be held In re-
servo to bo used In case of fire or emergency.
