(From a Staff Correspondent)
UNCOIJC, Neb., Nov. .-Speclal Tel
egTatn.) According to a census bulletin
made public today there are more hogs
In the state of Nebraska than In all of
the states west of here, with Maryland
thrown In for good measure. The num
ber Is only exceeded by Iowa with 7.527,
1(3, Missouri with 4.429,429 and Illinois and
Indiana with almost the same number.
In other words, there are Just 3,434,93S
head of swine In this state. Iowa has
the largest Total value of swine on
farms, amounting to 170,000,000. Illinois
ranks second with $36,000,000. Nebraska
Is fourth In the list with 23,600,000.
On the face of the returns there was
Sl decrease Jn the number of swine re
ported, being about 7.7 per cent on a to
tal of 68,000,632.
The law of supply and demand Is
working overtime In the hog business.
In spite of the significant decrease shown
In the number of swine, there was a
material Increase In the value of all
wine, amounting to $166,025,000. or 71.S
per cent, the present value being $39S,
000.000. As a necessary result the aver
age value of swine Increased, the change
feeing from .69 to $6.86, which Is S3.17.
r 86.9 per cent. One of the more im
portant reasons for the higher relative
value la the fact that the 1910 report In
cludes a much larger proportion of ma
ture hogs and a smaller proportion of
Wprlng pigs than the census of 1900. The
effect this change would have Is evi
denced by the fact that In 1910 the ma
ture hogs were' valued at $10.02 on an
kverage, while spring pigs were reported
mt $2.06 per animal. There has, however,
keen a general rise In price of swine of

hours roaming about the city, attired in
a picturesque sombrero and corduroy
trousers, and then asked to be Immedi

WEEKLY LUNCHES ARE !
PLANNED FOR THE CLUB
With a desire- to branch out and ex
pand Its field the Commercial club Is
figuring on organising a series ot weekly
luncheons for the discussion of current
topics and the entertainment of notables
visiting the city. The work, If under
taken, will devolve on the publlo affairs
committee, which is to be called together
soon to take action on the proposed plan.
The suggestion gets support from what is
being done by similar organisations In
other cities, such as Chicago and De
troit, which have regular meetings at
which members lunch together and listen
to addresses or discussions by men who
can throw light on the particular subject.
