ood descriptive title to apply to th Tax-ton-Eckman
Chemical company of South
Omaha. This firm, which Is no (closely
connected with the general Industry repre
aented by the Union Stock Yards, is housed
In the Exchange building.
This company la concerned alone with
the manufacture of remedies for the treat

The product of this company are widely
used among stock raisers in all of the

would be complete without proper mention
of Wood Brothers, live stock commission
merchants. The firm of Wood Brothers
was established at Chicago m 1867, and the
South Omaha house was opened In 1885,
so that the firm of Wood Brother must
be considered as a part and parcel of this
Wood Brothers are not only the oldest
concern In the business, but are often re
ferred to as the most progressive. Abso
lute honesty, at way b; unerring judgment
and quick decision are the qualities which
have made this firm strong. They were
the first to initiate "sales letters," advis
ing the customer of the manner in which
the transaction was made. They were the
first to send out market information by
papers and circulars. The founders of the
"Market Paper," accepted as standard,
and for years published over their signa
ture the market quotations. The first to
install a completo system of private tele
phones (both Independent and Bell)
throughout their yards, making it possi
ble for salesmen at the yards to talk with
their patrons at all points.
The South Omaha market has enjoyed a
phenomenal growth since Its organisation.
More than 95 per cent of all the live stock
received here last year was sold at this
market. It Is the second largest hog and
sheep market and the third largest cattle
and hog market in the world. How much

of this is due to the high standard of effi
ciency set by Wood Brothers cannot be
known, but we do know that the high
standing of this firm is well typified by its
nanager, Mr. Walter E. Wood, who is
recognized socially and commercially as
the most popular man in the trade.
Mr. Wood is ably assisted in the cattle
department by Mr. Ben F. Roth and Mr.
E. N. Munson, making a trio of cattle
salesmen second to none In the business.
Mr. C. II. Marling and Mr. Fred Huber
are the hog salesmen and Mr.. William F.
Farrar and Mr. Herbert Q. Carruthers
sheep salesmen. They need no introduction
to the live stock world, for their many
record sales and the fact that their busi
ness is increasing all the time is good evi
dence of their ability.

there, to drive out the devil from the pork,

fry pork chops you don't cook them en
tirely through; and then again if you cook
them too much you make them dry and
hard. But Norway style you boll them
first till they are thoroughly cooked and
then you lay them In flour, taking up on

then you fry them tUl they are well

Head of the Creamery
There is a great deal of newspaper talk
nowadays about a creamery trust which is
grinding the faces of the poor. It appears,
from the printed stories, that all the west
ern creameries, which are supposed to be In
competition, are in reality under on man
agement, the parent concern being; a Ne
braska creamery whose same la known all
over the world.
The head of the Nebraska oreamery, and
consequently of the whole system. If the
stories are true, is a young man named
George E. Haskell. Tho promised Investi
gation may show that Mr. Haskell la a
fiend In human form, but people who know
him. and who have watched his progress,
have so much admiration for the man that
they'll be apt to overlook the enormity of
About fifteen years ago Mr. Haskell was
operating a little, old-style creamery plant
In a Nebraska town. The farmers brought
their milk every morning, and it was run
through a separator, and they carried awav
their skim milk. The creamery was a little
old wooden shack, and all the machinery
and appliances were cheap and out of date.
Haskell was young, poor and ambitious.' He

wanted to Increase his business, but it was
hard to interest the farmers, who ltked the
old plan of making their own butter and
trading it for tobacco at the grocery stores
So he conceived the idea of establishing
agencies at the small towns In the neigh
borhood, milk was received at these agen
da, altd the cream sent to headquarters.
The plan worked and Haskell gradually
extended his territory until he was re
celvlnr cream from every hamlet within 100
miles. That was the beginning of the pres
ent system of creameries. It made Haskell
the greatest man in the business, enriched
him, and put the small co-operative cream
eries out of business which was no loss
to anybody, for they were always in trouble
and the west used to be dotted with aban
doned creamery buildings.
Haskell Is far frpm being; the typical
head of a trust. He never weighed more
than 100 pounds in his life, and Is sick a
good part of the time, he is a generous,
warm-hearted, companionable man, who la
beloved by thousands who are on his pay
roll. He la a man who dreams big dreams,
and has the ability and courage to make
them materialise, and it is doubtless a sur
prise to him to h am that he rs being
classed with the robber barons. One little
Item of his system is worth mention, he
pays princely salaries to good men. Some
