(From a Btaif Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Sept. 15. (SpeclaD-One of
the problems which faces the commis
sioner of weights and measures under
the iittw law Is that of weight of flour
as sent out by millers. In many In
stances a sack of flour which when
sacked weighs the required forty-eight
pounds, In course of time will dry out
and fall short of the weight required by
law when sold to the consumer.
When sacked at the mill the flour Is
placed In a sack which In most Instances
Is marked as containing forty-eight
pounds and does so contain that amount
when It leaves the mill. In due course
of time It reaches the consumer and falls
short according to the length of ltlmo It
has taken to go the route between the
mill and the consumer. Who then Is re
sponsible for the shortage and who will
havo to make good.
According to the law and the ruling of
the commissioner the manufacturer who
brands his goods will have to stand good
for the amount shown by the brands even
after It has gone out of his possession
Into the hands of a second, third and
possibly a fourth party. The new weights
and measures law requires that a barrel
of flour must contain 196 pounds, half
barrel, ninety-eight pounds, a quarter
barrel sack forty-eight pounds, eighth
barrell sack twenty-four pounds, and a
ilxteenth barrel sack twelve pounds.
The net amount of flour In weight must
be printed on the main label of the sack
or barrel and it must be exclusive of the
weight of the container.
The barrel or sack must have printed
thereon the name of the manufacturer
and the place of manufacture.
If flour Is made of more than one kind
of wheat It must be stated on the label.
The mixing of spring and winter wheat
comes under thlg head.
The law permits the use of nitrogen
peroxide In the belachlng of flour and If
flour Is bleached It need not be branded
as bleached If for sale or use In the
Nance Treasurer
Has Novel Scheme
(From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN. Sept 15. (Special Telegram.)
Secretary Oaddls of the tax commission
has received a great many letters sug
gesting different methods of making laws
to govern taxation and secure the best
results for the state. The latest comes
from Treasurer Richardson of Nance
county, who believes the best laws can be
secured for the state by a very radical
change In the methods of making the
laws and tho number of members of the
legislature elected for that purpose.
Kir. Richardson suggests that the sen
ate be composed of only five members
and and the house of only ten. ' These'
members shall be paid a good salary and
be In session the year round. They shall
be subject to recall at any time a cer
tain per cent of the voters petition for
nr. election 'for Yhat purpose,, ' ' ,

The greatest damage was done to the
Lydick property, the fire eating Its way
into the interior of the building and dam
aging a large amount of the harness

and Mrs. Lydick, who live upstairs over
the harness shop, were not awakened

that the bed on which they were sleeping
was partially burned.
Tho damage to the Lydick building and

to the Goebel office and the building oc

The purchase of Hard Coal for the winter- is a serious matter and involves
a large expenditure which is, in most cases, a difficult one to provide for.
It seems necessary, however, to use Coal and wo want you to feel that it
would be good judgment to buy
Sunderland's Certified Hard Coal
Our Goal is inspected before shipment to Omaha and again upon
arrival at our yards. It must be of highest grade or rejected.
If it's good enough for us to unload, it is suitable for most ex
acting coal buyers.
You cannot afford to take any ohances on coal quality, and you
don't have to if you buy from Sunderland. Winter heat de
pends on the quality of the coal you burn and costs too much to
lose any of it because of slaty, stony, dirty coal.
