B. A. Cudahy's residence at 618 South
Thirty-seventh Street was put on tha mar
ket Wednesday and It was announced that
the purchaser. If one la secured by then,
will be given possession late next spring.
The residence would coat 1150,000 to build
at present prices. The house la of stone,
contains sixteen rooms and stands on prop
rrty 17x1(16 feet..
It Is doubtful If Mr. Cudahy or his
agents, Tukey Son, will get as much aa
$150,000 for the house alone, for the history
of expensive residences Is that the de
mand for them is ao comparatively small
that few buyers come to the front. For
another thing many men of sufficient
means to bny and keep up such a place
prefer to build their own. and tha present
trend Is farther west than the Cudahy
site, although this Is In tha heart of tha
best West Farnam district.
Mr. Cudahy's other real estate holdings
In Omaha Include two lots u Zouglaa
street between Eighteenth and Nineteenth,
tha Atrdome occupying a portion of one
of these. The lots have a frontage on
Doualaa Struct of 2CI feet. Tha west half
nf these extends 132 feet, the east half,
where the Alrdome lai runs back 0 feat.
The rt of thla east part Is owned by
the Hamilton estate.
Mr. Cudahy also bought tha northwest
ooner of Seventeenth and Douglas and
sold this again to Dr. H. C. Oifford.
Joseph Cudahy'a house will undoubtedly
be bought by DeForent Richards, cashier
of the -tmnh National. Mr. Richards ad
mitted Wednesday that tha deal la nearly

Anton Lundstrom discovered this rooster
with brains a. a Missouri poultry show
and he went after him for the big Omaha
show. The bird is a Rhode Island Red and
a kingly looking fellow. There was some

when he was a downy chirk. When his
youth was reached he did not crow so
much but he thought a lot. No one knew

This chicken feeder Is built for chickens
without any brains. It Is a cylinder placed
on a rack several feet above the ground.
There is a perch nearer the ground and
It Is so arranged that when a fowl flies
onto this perch the cylinder revolves and
scatters feed around the lot. All chickens
have an Instinct to fly up on perches and
when ordinary, common, brainless chickens
fly up on this perch, they scatter feed
all over the lot for themselves.
But not so with the Rhode Island Red,
who hat taken his degree a bachelor oi
mechanical arts. He reasoned out the
modui operandi and works the machine
He walks up to the machine with an im
portant cluck of two struts and a scratch.
He looks around to see If anyone Is watch
ing him and then deliberately lifts his left
foot he Is left handed and always uses
this foot pushes down the lever and the
feed flies about the lot. Calling his as
sociates, the rooster helps eat the grain
and then repeats the operation. He is the
only chicken In the lot who operates the
machine on purpose.
Aa a result of securing this famous rooster
and the chicken feeder, the secretary of
the Transmlsslsslppl show Insists that the
day Is coming when the rooaters will be
given mental teats by the Judges as well
a being cored for physical points.
"Chickens ought to pas an examination
to get Into the prixe winning clas," says
Lundstrom. "We may have an examination
In the kindergarten classes this year."
The Rhode Island Red and the feeding
device will arrive in Omaha Saturday and
will be set up In the Auditorium ready to

for a week.

Wednesday morning. At the close of the
morning session Sheriff Bralley gave notice
to the defense that Erdman would there
after be seated behind counsel and di
rectly in front of a deputy sheriff.
"I do not Interfere with you in the trial
or the rase, but I am not going to have
any more such scones In this court room
so long as I am sheriff.' he declared.
Cursing to further emphaslie his dissat

Telser for his method at a recess.
From the time the recess ended until the
noon adjournment Erdman critlclxed his
attorney almost constantly. Time after
time Erdman, who sat behind Telser,
leaned forward and impatiently demanded
the reason why Mr. Yelser did not ask thii
or that question. When Mr. Yelser would
object to some question asked by County
Attorney ingusn on direct examination the
defendant would lean forward and growl
out a suggestion or a demand that the ob

Mr. Telser's changed attitude led some
persons In the court room to form the be
