Tha ouawtlon of supplying the inner man
I. on of continual interest to housewives,
chef, ml all those having to do with pre
paring for tha table the various forma of
vegetable and animal Ufa used for food.
Tha average housewife who wisely appre
ciates tha philosophy of "feeding the
brut," knowa her husband cannot live by
bread or flapjack alone, no aha scans tha
marte and even at that occasionally re
marks, "What ahall we have to eat?" For
har anawer ahe either calls up her pur
veyor by telephone or goes to market her
aelf and flnda that today Omaha wan never
batter provided with the (rood things that
go to sustain Ufa and please the palate.
Tha Omaha market at thla season of the
year take on a now leaae of life with the
autumnal tinge, as with the advent of
cooler weather and approach of Thanks
giving tha appetite of tuaj community takea
on added xest and supply meeta demand.
The market! are Just now presenting a
tempting appearance, much of the product
being of a mora aubatantlal nature than
that offered In tha summer days. The local
market facilities have kept apace during
tha year .with other tinea of advancement.
Fruits, vegetables, nut flrli. poultry and
other forms of food are coming In abun
dantly from both domestic and foreign
Start la Anywhere.
"Where ahull I begin T' remarked a
woman who wanted to look over the mar
ket yesterday afternoon.
"Juat begin anywhere." ahe was told.
Bo ahe atarted In with the cranberries.
Bhe learned that tha quality of cranberrlea
Is fine, but that there will be a material
advance, in prices before Thanksgiving ahall
have arrived, the reason being that the de
mand for the little red turkey accompani
ment la strong this year.
Tha poultry supply In general is plentiful
and the quality good. Peculiar circum
stance, have affected the price of poultry,
which will be lower this season than last
'year. Turkeys will not be as plentiful as
last year in Nebraska. It Is believed some
of tha tribe will have to be brought from
Texas and Oklahoma to Nebraska this
There are soma fine spring chickens and
domeatlo ducks on the market Just now.
Geese are nearly as scarce aa hen teeth.
The uncertainty in the east as to what con
ditions may. prevail in cold storage legisla
tion has had the effect of causing some
thing of a slump In the poultry market,
particularly that of chickens.
Oyster, asa Celery.
Then cornea oysters snd celery. David
Coia now has two cara of Nebraska celery
on tha track and at least a dozen cana of
oysters at bis office. Mr. Cole says oysters
ara corning along fine, so that he who
runs can eat oysters it he chooses. There
are plenty of "standards" In. The stan
dards are the spring chickens of the
oyster family. They come from the waters
of the Cheeepeake and are separated from
their kind parents at the tender age of
3 years, for standards travel on their ten
derness. Omahnna who like "selects" can
have plenty of tbem. Selects are oysters
which reach their majority, which In oys
ter Ufa Is S years. They are nice raw or
fried. New York counts are In by the
bushels. Tha New York counts ara the
Beau Brummel of oysters. They ara, after
all, but selects transplanted to watera of
Long Island sound or other similar water
and not marketed until large enough to
sell by the thousand in the abell. No one
ever beard of a New York count being
sold by the gallon. That Is why the price
of "counts" is higher and the demand
so great Omaha people consume New
York eounta In large numbers. The oyster
dredging season was opened October IS in
Maryland and Virginia.
Speaking again of celery, It la noted that
tbla plant la taking rank In Omaha with
cabbage and pressing the potato hard for
Its laurels. One dealer who has two cars
on hsnd hss ordered six cars for bis
Thanksgiving trade.
Apples asa Other Frwlts.
All aorta of tempting fruit ara on tha
market, with others on the way. Such pop

A "people's lobby" is the attractive
scheme proposed by one of the nisgaxines.
The Idea ls to establish at Washington a
lobby of well known men who will acrutl
niza all the legislation that cornea up, de
tect the "snakes" and warn the public of
But there la a people's lobby already at
Washington. It has been operating with
the utmost vigilance for many years. Bo
efficiently doea It work that whea
"snakes" get Into bills and May In them
till the day of passage. It ls never because
tha public has not been advised of them;
it Is alwajs in defiance of that fact.
Thla people's lobby haa driven tha old
fashioned professional lobbyist out of
Washington. The days when the beautiful
female lobbyist of the stage got votes for
some scandalous "claim" have gone by In
Washington,, though those daya still exist
on the stage when a drama of Washington
life is on the boards.
The time of "The Gilded Age" haa gone
by; Laura Hawkins and Colonel Bellera do
not flourish in Washington any more.
Oa Haadred Fifty Traiaed Observers
This people's lobby consists of 160 trained
professional observer, who. upon proving
their richt to be accepted, are admitted
by the duly constituted authorities to tha
press gallery of tha senate and house.
These duly constituted authorltlea are
created by congress, but elected by the
newspaper correspondent themselves. Not

pro rated along the line as at present.
Whatever one may think ot this aa a mat
ter of equity, It vsould certainly be bad
oolitic, for the rural countlea to let go any
part of the taxes that they get front ths

admitted to the prers gallery. The press
gallery ls not merely a gallery; it ls the
name for the organised corps of corre
spondents! It has headquarters, set apart
for It by congress. In rooms located back
of Its galleries, and it has a staff of era
ployes appointed by the authority of con
gross and paid out of the public funds.
The head of this organization is called
the press committee. It ls an official
body, created under the rules of the sen
ate and house. This committee consists
of five men, who bold office two years,
and are elected every other December b
the ISO men In the organisation.
Power to Expel Black Sheep.
This press committee is vested by con
gress with complete power over the men
who elect it. On charges duly preferred a
newspaper correspondent can be brought
before thla body and tried. If found guilty,
he can be expelled from the press gallery.
This doe not mean merely from his scat
in a gallery; It means that he can be ex
pelled from the recognised body of corre
apondenta, driven out to aeek his bread
with a brand on hla forehead. No man who
has been expelled on chargea of corruption,
grafting or anything else affecting hla mo
ral character has ever been able to do busi
ness In Washington. It has been the end
of them all.
It la due to this institution that tha or
ganisation known as the "press gallery" is
about the cleanest spot in Washington life.
For three congresses It was presided over
by the late E. G. Dunnell of the New York
Times, who won tber reputation of being tha
most unsparing and remorseless rooter-out
of grafters that ever held the place ct
chairman of the press committee.
The present committee Is aa strong as
any that ever tveld that trying place. It
consists of Bamuel G. Blythe, chairman;

The rallroada are assessed now tor mu
nicipal tares in every city, town and vil
lage, but they are enabled, by reason of the
law as it la now, to evade a large part of
their Just share. The present law provides
that the state board shall lump all tangible
property, add to tbla the tangible value,
and divide tha total by tba numbur ot
rallea of road In tha atate. . Tba quotient
repreaenta the value per mile of tha roads.
and all that ls necaaaary theu to find out
tha taxable valuatlou for each taxing dls-

number of miles ot road tberln. When the
city, town or village starts to tax the rall-
