I obvious reasons, have never wanted rrlll

keeping them out," said Mr. Pesvey. "A
year ago a large milling concern sent Us
representatives here, expecting to locate a

and put conditions In such a false light
that the company went to Kansas City ami
put $300,000 In a plant, which has just been

"We hr.ve an elevator capacity of s.CXVOOfl
bushels and It is still growing. We have
as low rates as any market, and the roads
for the most part have recently given us
Just distributing rates. There ara plenty
of cheap sites on both sides of the river.
We can draw from all of Nebraska and
part of South Dakota, and can mix spring
and winter wheat moro cheaply than other
center. For that matter, though, thers
Is no necessity of mixing spring whent

the fact that winter wheat alone makes
Just aa good bread snd they are refusing
to pay premiums for spring wr-eat flour.
"I understand, though I am not at liberty
to use any names, that certain country
millers of Nebraska ara figuring on build

begins to set take the string of nuts and
