LINCOLN. Jan. 19 (SpeHal.) The hi"
annual mwtlnrs of organised agriculture
of Nebraska got falrlr under way th's
morning at the State farm, and progressive

Duroc-Jersry Breeders' association and the
Nebraska State Horticultural society. The
medical men and tha aasoclatlon of agri
cultural students were tha vanguard which
opened sessions yesterday, the former com
pleting their program In the afternoon.
Tlie feature of the session tonight was
the dedication of the handsome $70,01) home
economics building at the State farm. It
was dedicated by Prof. Kllen H. Richards
of the Institute of Technology of Boston,
During the evening the structure was
thrown open to the inspection of visitors
and a reception committee was on hand
to make everybody feel at home in the first
building devoted to women on the grounds
of the state experiment station and Agri
cultural college. Several hundred students,
a big per cent of them being the daughters
of Nebraska farmers, are taking a course

The State Board of Agriculture met this
afternoon and listened to the reports of Its
officers. Sonator Mcllor delivered his an
nual report, reviewing the year and sug
gesting what is desired for the ensuing
year. The total expenditures under the
board's direction were $76,504.78. and the
total receipts were $81,618.77, leaving a bal
ance of $5,111.99.
Oil Inspector Allen Reports.
A. B. Allen, the retiring state oil In
spector, completed his biennial report this
morning and filed it with Governor Shal
lenherger. Mr. Allen, among other recom
mendations. Includes a change in the law
governing the test of gasoline. At the pres
au time the gravity test is 68 degrees, and
Air. Allen would change that to 63 degrees.
This recommendation, he soys. If acted
upon, will permit Nebraskans to buy Kan
sas gasoline, which Is now below the 68
The total number of barrels of kerosine
and gasoline Inspected by this department
during the year 191 was 263.7S2. as com
pared with 262.4S5 in 1907. Of the 190 In
spections, HI. 731 harrela were kerosene and
122,051 were gasoline. The total receipts
were $611.89 less thsn the receipts of the
Drevlous year, principally owing to the
fact that the Chicago, Burlington & Qulncy
Railroad company and the T'nion Pacific
Railroad company have refused to pay the
Inspection fees on the ol!s Inspected for
them, save that the latter company has
paid the fees .on one tar ,'er month.
During the last year two prosecutions
were Instituted by this department In t)a
kota county, against a local agent of the
Iowa Tank Line company of Sioux City,
la., for selling uninspected oil. The party
pleaded guilty In dlstrl-t court and was
ftnc $u0 and costs, which was paid to the
proper authorities. With this exception
there has been ample respect shown for
the provisions of the Inspection laws by all
engaged In the selling of Illuminating oils,
the only kind of oils with which this de
partment has to do. Mr. Allen recommends
that the law be amended so as to provide
for a fee of 50 cents per barrel for Inspec
tions In quantities from one to five barrels.
25 cents per barrel for quantities from six
to twenty barrels. 15 cants per barrel in
quantities from twenty-ona to 100 barrels,
and 10 cents per barrel In all quantities
over 100 barrals. Ha also recommends thst
our gravity test for gasoline be reduced
from 68 degrees to 63 degrees.

' Mttle t.lrl Saves Playmate.
The heroic efforts of Kt-year-nld Annie
Unnner saved her plsymale. Edith Lather,
from drowning In Salt creek lait Sunday
The Ijuiher child, who Is only 8 years of
age, had tumbled through a hole in the '
Ice near which the two girls were playing (
and had risen to the surface the second j
time when her companion caught her dress, '
dragged her out and resuscitated her.
i Then the two children ran nearly two
j miles to their home and told the startling
; story to their parents. The lusher girl is
j none the worse for her experience, though
. her mother was nearly prootrated when she
j heard the tale. The father. T. J. Lasher,
is an employe In the boiler shope at Have
lock. Tha two were with a number of other
little folk playing along tha creek at the
time of the accident. All were present at
the moment Edith Lasher alid into the hole,
but most of them were, as they axpressed
It, 'scared' stiff," and rendered physically
unfit to glva any assistance that la, all
save little Annie Bonner, wtio crept to the
lagged edge of the lea hole and after sev
eralrfforts managed to catch tha drown
ing child's skirt and drag her out.
The weather was not very. cold, but the
one waa thoroughly soaked and the other
very damp. After reviving Edith they both
were able to keep fairly warm until they
reached home, where they were quickly
given hot bath and put to bed.
Attorney lies for Fees.

company sought to oust tha Uncoln Trac

company from the use of the Lincoln
streets, eventually succeeding. In 1907, after
carrying the case through the supreme
court, in securing a decision refusing the
Traction company tha right to build on
any streets within the city save those
on which It already had a franchise from
the city council. This, the plaintiff as
serts, gave the Citliens' company the op
portunity to enter Into successful competi
