soon followed toward noon by a drop of
another cent. There was considerable

excitement in tho pit.
Heavy stop orders were executed when
Pecember wheat got below the dollar
level, many longs refusing to let pront

A large quantity of wheat owned In the

advantage of the situation and hammered
the price, pulling down the December

day at the Omaha Iand show. Ills
Majesty hopes thnt a largo number of his

ing their attendance will do N credit to
their Royal Liege and his Standard.
During the past two weeks thousands
of visitors have admired and marveled
at tho display of fruits, grains and
grasses gathered from the dozen Inter
mountaln and Pacific slope states, but
the climax of this wonder and admira
tion has not been reached until they
have passed through the north gallery
of the Coliseum where tho products of the
Antelope state have been spread for In
spection. Although but few of the Nebraska
countries have been at the Land Show
with their exhibits, enough have been
presont to give the stranger within the
gates' of Omaha an Idea of what Nebras
ka soil, aided by sunshine anu the heaven
given waters can do to add prosperity
and plenty to the homes of millions of
consumers in every section of the United
States. These displays are simply sym
bollo of the productiveness of the broad
acres of tho state that Is now sending
Its grains and Its meats to every coun
try on the face of the civilised globe..
This year at tne Land Show, Poug'aa,
Dawes.-Sheridan, Scottbluff, Morrill and
