Along tha Una of thd teatlnKiny of E. W.

onimlaalor.era at Kanaaa City Tuesday,
showing he had Inalde Information of a
rate about to be made by the Milwaukee
railroad and bought over 1,000,000 buahela of
corn before hi competitor were advlaed
of the rate, may be mentioned a peculiar
Incident lu the grain. trade at Omaha last
nn in Miiwuukne, about a year .ago,
announced a special export rate of corn
th Omaha Elevator 'company and the
frnanemlafrtaalppl Grain company were the
only concerns with their line houses aud
termiim.1 elevators full of corn. They had
held their corn for some time and for a
few days had been buying right and left
ta tha country. The -other dealers had
been shipping as usual.
Th result was that the TransminstHntppl
lrln, company and the Omaha Elevator
ompeny, shipped the bulk of the grain
ant out of Omaha over the Milwaukee nn
er that export rate. They had the grain
Mid they got the cars. The other dealers
got themselves Into action and shipped
connldsrabl corn toward the end of the
rat period, but even then they found great
difficulty in getting cars.
"That Vat' of ours was an open rate
ad every grain and elevator man or firm
'could ship by U." said a representative of
th Milwaukee Wednesday morning. "There
was nothing ' secret about It. Certainly
soma on firm or two would ship more
grain than others, because it is perfectly
natural that some one firm or two would
do a larger business than others. There's
nothing mysterious about, that. As a mat-
iter of fact th Milwaukee had nothing to
; oover up and so did not attempt it. Its
tat was publicly announced. If a certain
grain firm of two made more money under
that rat than some others, that's not our
'fault, but their 'fortune." 1

I Two years ago ihej Mlaaouri Paclflo made
midnight tariff by which the Roaenbaiiu
Grain company of Chicago aod the HalU
Baker Grain . company of. Kansas 'City
Shipped an enormous quantity of grain opt
of Omaha to . the exclusion of other ex
porting concerns and the loss of the local
grain men from whom the grain was
bought. These two', concerns paid th
- Omaha dealer above the market price for
grain, and When they' had corralled every
thing in this part of the country the Mis
souri Pacific export rate was announced,
allowing them a handsome profit on tielr
holdings.' ' If Rosenbaum and Hall-Baker
had not bought the grain when they did,
f th Omaha men would have received kv
eral cents more a bushel, that la, provided
th fa f was announced.
This midnight tariff resulted In the blg-
gest corn blockade in the history of Ne

tout tbe rightful peace every human be-
ing has a right to, change the food.
If your present method of feeding
makes imperfect cells and fsils to
build the soft gray matter in brain
and nerve centres scattered over the
body, look alive, quit the old diet, and
take on a new and better one. That's
plain common sense. Right then is
the exact time to quit coffee absolutely
and select meals wisely. Suppose you
try for breakfast,
A little fruit,
A dish of Grape-Nuts and cream,
Two soft-boiled eggs,
A cup of Fostum Food Coffee. .
fitop at that, it will carry you easily the midday meal, which can be
either a lunch of the same things If
a dinner is expected at night) or the
heavy meal can beNsken at midday.
Take only one heavy meal'ln a day In
addition to the two light ones.
At the heavy meal have one good
meat course, with one or two vege
tables, ud a itch, sweet GrapeNuts
pudding. After a few days of these
meals a change for the better will
come oer the body In practically every
case where the disease has not become
too firmly fixed and chronic
Henienibfr h"altr is a matter of
wisely selected food and a harmonious
mind. It will be tremendous, help

lasuranee Company on Hack.
The Provident Accident Insurance com
pany of Omaha Is passing under the In
surance department limelight and may be
compelled to haul down the flag and turn
Its toes to the daisies. An examination of
the affairs of the company bag Just been
completed by George Anthes and It shows
very little of. the coin of the realm ha
been handled by- this concern. The collec
tions alnce January have amounted to
$1,452 50, while it has collected In all since
its organisation the sum of $3.2410 and
it has disbursed a total of 13.2S4.92. The
company violates the law in that It Id
doing business with only 153 members,
when the law says It should have 25a It
now has on hand claims being adjusted
amounting to a total of 1150. It has cash
on hand reaching the enormous sum of
19.89; premiums In process of collection,
1131, and furniture and fixtures valued at
1125, making its total assets reach the
sum of 1265.69, startling figures In these
days of (rensled finance. It has collected
In advance assessments to the amount of
178; It has on hand claims Inherited from
th old company amounting to 110; It has
an open account from the old company
amounting to 118S; it has other accounts
outstanding reaching !i62.. Mr. Anthes
found that one premium had been collected
for which there had been no policy Issued.
If the company shows signs of getting on
Its feet the Insurance department will not
close It up, but according to Mr. Pierce
It looks like It Is all In.

also occur by action of the house, and the
term 'otherwise' Is a comprehensive one
Intended to cover all other causes. The
,a,e does not make an indiscriminate
provision for the payment of members of
congress. It apportions one salary to each
district or seat, and Its plain purpose Is
that the whole of that salary shall go
to the member of successive- members, who
j .-eprvsent that district or occupy that seat,
and that no part of the foalary shall fall
back Into the treasury."
In another case which was passed upon
by the court of claims, and In which this
eame languuge was used, appeal was taken
to the supreme court of the United States
and the decision . of the .lower court waa
sustained. The Teegarden circular goes on:
In brief, the situation Is simply this:
The salary of congressmen is fixed by stat
ute, and If the congressman Is paid the
salary fixed by the statute It can not be
morally wrong since It is legally right,
unless the democratic nominee contends
that congressmen should be paid on a
basis of the value of their services and
not as provided by the statute, In which
event a democratic congressman would
have difficulty In establishing his right or
claim to any salary. It is quite generally
known that the present administration
has been busy doing things for the general
good of the people, and a democratic con
pressman from this district at this time
would he In the way. No on claims that
ne would nelp the president or Congress In
the work to be done. It must be admitted
that lie would be In the way of getting
the work done, and for that service, if he
would not avail himself of the statutory
salary, he would not get any salary.
Railroad Mast Pay Ten Dollars Per
Hoar for Delay.
BCRWELL, Neb.; Oc 24. (Special.) -District
court has beeij in session fcere
and among other cases' decided was on
of more than general Interest to the stock
shippers of this state. , Tbe action was
brought under the provisions known as
"The Stock Speed Bill," Introduced by
Senator E. D. Qould of Oreeley county
and passed at the last session of the legis
lature. As to the time of departure of cars front
their place of shipment and the arrival
of same to their destination there was
but little dispute between the parties and
the questions Involved was the consti
tutionality of the law. . On this point the
court held that the 110 per hour waa not
a penalty, but was liquidated damages that
the legislature had a right to determine
and that the law of ttjs state Is a part
of every contract; that the liquidated
damages, as fixed by the legislature, was
reasonable. There were many other points
raised, but th cuse seemed to turn on
the qustlon as ststed.
