U Is a rulo of Postmaster Thonms to
never make public tiie names of persons
who wrlto such letters. The signatures he

indulKos In discussion of the content".
The general presumption among a certain
class of people seems to be tliat the post

from a woman In Omaha. She Is not sure,
hut she thinks she knows the name of tho
sender, and while she has no objection In
a general wy to tho contents of the prayer,
she does object to it being sent to her
husband, Iwuuse she looks upon it as an
entering wedge to further correspondence.
"Why can't she jUMt say her prayers,
anil cut out the writing?" the woman asks.
Mr. Thomas not being a prayer expert
i unablo to give t lie Information. Perhaps
it would do just as well to say the prayer
instead of writing It, but that is a matter
ovtr which the postmaster lias no Juris
diction. However, the woman evidently
thinks ho has power to net, for she con
cludes her letter with a command., "I want
I you to have this stopped at once."
Woman Wants llnaband.
I Another Woman fl om Alliance, Neb.,

man, widower preferred, who would like to
take a wife with a sheep ranch thrown In
for good measure.
"I am a widow," she writes, 46 years old,
generally considered good looking, and as
my sheep ranch is too big a proposition
for me to manage, I have decided to take
a husband, if I can find a suitable gent,
and let him take charge of the sheep. I
am a good cook and I will feed the man
well three times a day. I am not seeking
a man with means. I have plenty of
money, and will pay railroad fare to Al

"Next time I get the railroad pnss. I
don't get him," said C.us Apotolos, In

out of Judge Munger'sy ourt room Satur
day morning r.n his way to the Douglas
county Jail, where, accord ng to sentence
of the court, he must be held prisoner until
he pays a fine of SlOrt.
Apotolos' antipathy to the railroad pass
grows out of the fact that his tW fine re
sulted from a charge to tho effect that the
defendant had sold or jrlvrn nway an em
ploye's pass on the Vnlon Tnclfio rail

interstate commerce law, governing rail
Apotolos was worklnir for thi t'nlon Pa
cific at ogden. Ho obtained a Vnund trip

journeyed to Omaha and liked the place
so well that he decided not to return to
the 1'tah rlty. Then he had an unused
return coupon, which ho either sold or
gave to Peter Karpusos. a follow country
man, who wanted to go to Ogden. Special
Officer Canada of tho Fnlon Pacific
learned of tho dal and lifted Karpusos
from a train at Fremont as he was speed
ing; westward. Apotolos waa arrested sev
eral days ago and was arraigned Saturday
before Fnited States Commissioner Ander

asmuch as the commissioner's court is
only preliminary, Apotolos was sent over
to Judge Munger, where he entered a plea
of guilty. In order, as he stated, that he
might "get it done tip quicklike.
Judge Munger proved to be equal to the
speed requirements, and Immediately after
the plea of guilty was entered the penalty
was assessed, and it was all over. It Is
understood that the fine will be paid at
once probably this afternoon, so that Apo
tolos will not be a prisoner very long.
When the prisoner appeared before Judgo
Munger the Judge said:
"What's your name?"
"Cius," replied the defendant.
"That won't do, it's worse than that,"
answered the Judge.
Then "Qua" annexed the "Apotolos," and
the hearing proceeded.
Karpusos. who waa held only as a wit

and he declared that next time he starts

The mnn whoe duty it is to provide the

to Interest them In the South Omaha mar
ket reports these days These reports
when carefully analysed throw new llalt
on the recent reduction !n too price of !
meats, and incidentally confirm the some- I
times disputed theory that price Is rcu-
laled by visible supply. I
Receipts of cattle, sheep and hogs at
South Omaha are much greater this year I
than they were last year. For example, !
for the six c'.avs of the week Jut ended i
cattle receipts wero ;.!11!. asalnst IT, Old for
the samo period last year. Hog compari
sons for the same periods snow 81. Zi'),
scalnst M,:!6S, and sheep receipts have in
creased even more than cattle and l.oits,
for the last six days brought 113.111 to the
Soutli Omaha yards, against 37,!.Vi for the
same period last year.
Figures for the year 1910. so far as time,
has ticked It off. and a comparison with
,he. twelve months of 190, Including cattle
and hogs, Fhow as follows:
Total receipts of cattle 1M
Total receipts of cattle so far ll'KI
Total receipts of Iioks PV
Total receipts of hots so far 1!W.,
Considering the fact that there are six
more weeks of activity left In li'10 It Is
obvious that when the whole year shall
have been rounded out and computation Is
made there will be a big Increase in evi
dence. All Mork la I. oner.
Saturday prices on hogs, cattle and sheep
are low, not only on tho South Omaha
market, but on all the other big markets of
the country. South Omaha, In fact, has
been paying lo cents a hundred moro for
hog. than Chicago has been paying, hut
the decllno now under way promises to go
still further. The decline in hogs is from
10 to 15 cents within the last week, cornfed
steers are from ' to 40 cents lower than
they were a week ago and rango steers
have within the week dropped from 10 to 15
Wherefore, say well Informed stock
men, the secret of the lower prices of
meats to the consumer is made public t a
glance simply the operation of the law of
supply and demand.
There Is a division of sentiment among
Omaha meat market proprietors over the
decline in retail prices. Many of the subur
ban markets In residence sections profess
to have had no Information whatever con
cerning a reduction In meat prices, but the
more enterprising downtown meat shops
were quick to announce the slump and as a
result their trade Is growing by leaps and
bounds. Eventually the suburban meat
dealer w ill Join the procession, most likely,
for much of the trade that formerly went
to residential district markets now comes
to the big shops In the heart of the city.
Is the era of lower living coat here to
stay? That Is a question the householder
la asking many times a day. Most of the
authorities on the subject aro inclined to
believe that lower prices will prevail Indefi
nitely, for the bumper corn crop of Ne
braska, Towa, Missouri and other midwest
states Insures plenty of fattened stock
from the farms and such plenty naturally
has a tendency to Keep prices down.

all the departments aie placed together.
This department of the school has Im

years. This year discipline Is stiiet.r than
ever, the punishment squad having found
to be a fine plan for tT suhdJlng of
too exuberant spirits. The drill has ad
vanced well this year, the regiment pre
senting a very military appearance upon
tho streets each Tuesday und Thursday.
One of the features of this yiar Is the
fine band. Each Saturday the band has
appeared at the foot ball games, playing
lustily for Omaha nnd Is getting to be
quite a well known feature of the high
school games. Commandant Haskell and
I'rof. Bernstein, who have charge of the
military department aro greatly pleased at
the showing made so far. They are al
