Stock Losses in

Hie most extensive cattle and sheep feed
er In the state, la la Omaha. Discussing
. the lira stock situation In Wyoming, Mr.
Thorpe says It la no where as serious
as It promised to be when the spell of
frigid weather wsa hovering over the
country. He figures that the losses ot
the cattlemen and flockmastori will be
Just about normal.
Both cattle and sheep are thinner than
usual, owing to the long continued cold
hu; aside from this, they are in very
good condition and art going to come
through the winter fairly well unless there
should ke unusually cold weather and bad
storms during; February and March. -
According to- Mr. Thorpe, outside ot the
cattle and aheap country, people do not
understand tke situation. With many tbe
opinion prevails that the owners ot stock
go into the winter with little hay. expect.
lug that their animals will subsist picking
the dry grass on the range. The situation
is iHe the reverse of this; "

About Wild Indians
Where are all the Indians'" queried
Edward Downs, a 13-year-old New York
bay, who had come to Omaha to see
some of the real wild and woolly west.
Instead he saw the police, who looked
very much like the New York cops, and
very much like thry do in other metropol
itan places. They led him to the station.
I read there were a lot ot wild Indians
around here, and that sometimes they
Jult shot up everything and killed people
and scalped them slid held war dances
and everything," the boy explained to
'A man told me If I would just wait
around here they would come In and ride
whooping and shouting ui and down the
streets. I've waited three dsys, but I
haven't seen any."
After being taken to the detention home
the boy became convinced that there were
no very ferocious Indians around here.
"This place looks something Ilk New
York." he said and at this the detention
offloors swelled out their chests, "nay, 1
think I'll go home. I've got 11.3 here.
Just go snd tend a telegram to my fslher
and he will forward me a ticket." Juve
nile officers did as directed and back

strong. The finish is guaranteed not to stick or soil the hands

Look for the Name

This hard finish and the high polish we give Little Polly handles, is a secret

but have all failed.
Little Polly handles come in canary or rose color and all bear the name
The Little Polly, printed lengthwise. Be sure to look for and find this name,

You can get brooms that cost more, and others that cost less, but. pay what

these facts by giving the Little Polly a trial.
