platter displaying an ear of primitive and
pie-historic pod corn. This will oCfer com

grown until a few centuries ago. and about
the only corn then known, In contrast with
the magnificent ear winning the world's
sweepstakes. This primitive ear will, show
each kernel enclosed In a husk-like pod at

primitive growth, It may be remarked, was
recently "discovered" anew by a newspa

was a Lake City, In., date line preceding

Eahlblts for the Corn Show.
For the next few days there could be
kept standing lii type a statement to the
effect that exhibits for the National Corn
exposition by the hundreds and even by
the thousands are pouring .In on and well
nigh engulfing the department of exhibits.
Saturday the special car bringing the
Wyoming exhibits arrived in Omaha on the
Union Pacific, and in the afternoon came
. a special Illinois Central car from Chicago,
bringing hundreds of Illinois and Iowa
entries. The quantity and quality of these
,, and the ether exhibits received up to date
.have astonished even the most optlmlstlo
. of the corn exposition officials.
Every mall not only brings thous
ands of letters regarding entries or
letters asking Information, but every
mall also brings the promise of
aome or other distinguished man to at
tend the exposition. The latest of these is
note to President Wattles from former
United States Senator Joseph M. Carey
of Cheyenne, Wyo., accepting an Invita-
tlon to attend the exposition and to de
liver an address. The subject of Senator
Carey's address Is "Wyoming In the Future
as an Agricultural and Live Btock State."
, Every live stock man knows that Senator
Carey Is one of the biggest cattle growers
of the west.
Governor-elect ' Ashton C. Shallenberger
of Alma, another well known live stock
man, has been Invited to deliver an ad
. dress during the exposition on the after
V"oon of December 18,' incident to an impor
tant program arranged for the live stock
The! d:iy following the arrival of Super
intendent of Exhibits Young, Prof. A. D.
Shammel of the L'nlted States Department
of Agriculture arrived In Omaha. Prof.
Bhammel Is superintendent of judges of
the exposition, and not only will attend
this work, but will help in outlining the
arrangement of exhibits.

Our odd prices, $11. $13. $15, $17, $19, $23, and so on. cause considerable
comment. Lots of people wonder why we use them. We'll explain the buy
ing power of this store Is used for the benefit of our customers, not to make
huge profits for us. For Instance if we order a line of suits made and $17
will pay for one of them and the cost of handling, we don't think it right
to ask our customer to pay $20 for them, although they are in the $20 class,
according to the accepted standards of clothes values. Same principle applies
to svbry garment here. Our odd prices spell "sure savings" for our customers.

JOKE ON OFFICER MORGAN
Somebody Is Booked at the Police
station I nder Ills
Fmrrgonry Officer Ed Morgan was the
butt of considerable Joking at the police
station Saturday, as ah Edward Morgan
booked there on the charges of drunken
ness, vagrancy and begging on the street,
gave him quite, a shock when he first saw
the entry on the Jail record.
"Who's putting up this Joke?" demanded
officer klomn. his face clouding at the
Idea that anyone should even Joke about j
lilm as a "drunk" or "vag." "It won't i
be such a Joke when I get the man who i
did It," he added, and the bluecoats in thc
Jail offlco looked up with some concern, as
Morgan Is rmre than a boaster when It
comes to anything In the athletic line, hav
ing quite a record as a boxer, wrestler and
sprinter In local circles, both on and off
the police force.
"Well, there was an Kd Morgan hooke 1
this morning, but I guess It wasn't you."
responded one of the men, and Officer Kd
Immediately cooled oft and smiled, for sure
enough there was the man's record: "Ed-
ward Morgan, Elgin, 111., drunk, vagrant
and begging on the street; arrested by
Patrolman W. E. Smith."
The next time Officer Morgan scents a
Joke he says he Is going to look at the
books first. However, he does not expect
that many Ed Morgans will be "copped."
