The third day of the allotment of lands In the North Platte forest re serve marked the largest crowd In Hyan nis so far.

It Is freely predicted that the" selec tions by the third 100. which will be called tomorrow, will exceed all previous records.

Tho Judge says that In all that time he has never witnessed a more remarka ble aolndden.ee than tho drawing of Nos. -) and 251 by Elizabeth and Jcanlo Tddd. Thcso two sisters live atBroken Bow. They registered together nt Broken Bow In tho order In which they drew their numbers when the drawing occurred at North Platte. One of tho little girls doing the drawing stood on one side of tho big pllo of envelopes and another on the other side and drew alternately." Al though their envelopes had become widely separated, th e names ot the Mtssco Todd were drawn from the stack In tho order In whelch thejhad registered. Now tho time of their making selection will bo separated by t,he noon hour, as Miss Elizabeth Is, the last of the list to mako selections beTore noon tomorrow and her slater will make the first selection after noon. However, they do not Intend to bo separated aa they will select their farms together. The first colored man to be drawn. John n.

THREATS OF SECESSION "WiMhlnpiton DrlcRHtcs Will Never Acrntn Intrude on, Such Gather Ins;, Declare One. WASHINGTON, Nov. 19.-Proponents of federal control of water powor tights, led by Glfford Pinchot, former chief for ester: Henry L. Stimson, former secre tary of war, and Walter -I Fisher and James It. Garfield, former secretaries ot tho Interior, won a victory today In the national conservation congress here In tho first test of strength on the para mount Issue of tho assembly. By a vote ot 434 to 134 a motion to re fer to the resolutions committee that portion of the rciort of tho committee on waterways was voted down and tho report subsequently adopted Yvlthout n roll call. Tho test of strength canio when, as a substitute for a- motion by Mr. Stimson to adopt tho unanimous re port, E. T. Brlant bf Tennessee, cham pioning the cause of state control ot water rights, moved referring the report to the committee. Tho vote followed a day of lively debate, In which tho Issue clearly defined was federal or stato con trol of waterway development In tha future. Poller Nt Finally Determined. The result did not finally determine the policy, however, as divergent reports from the committee on waterways are now In tho hands of the resolutions com mit too to bo reported upon tomorrow. Tho majority of' the committee, led by Prof. George F.Bwan, submitted a re port proposing that the states bo given a voice In the granting of water power franchises. Glfford Pinchot Mr. Stimson and Jo soph N. Teal of Oregon offered minority views urging strict federal control of all water rights, with compensation to tho government under certain conditions for franchise privileges. The unanimously adopted report referred only to certain general principles upon which all could agree and .tho subject was thrown open for discussion early In the day upon mo tion of Mr. Stimson to adopt this part of tho report. Both sides In the debate yielded for a rote late in tho day when Mr. Bryant urged that the whole matter should go to tho resolution committee. Tho result was so overwhelmingly one-sided that the Pinchot following claimed the report of the minority of the waterways commit tee evontuully would be adopted. Snpporters of Motion to Refer. Delegates who supported the motion to refer the question to the resolutions committee chame chiefly from Alabama. Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Montana, NeVada, New Mexico, Bouth Carolina, Tennessee and Washington. In" the heat of tho discussion Dudley G. Wooten of Washington, anticipating that the supporters of state control would be In the minority, vehemently declared that the delegates from Washington "owuld never again Intrude on a national con servation congroes." C. L. Watts, one of the Alabama dele gates, startled the convention by charg ing that he vice president of the Ala bama Water Power company was a mem ber of the delegation to thn congress from that state, and thut there was a "dark laid plot to defeat the will of the majority In the congress."

Passing of the Prune-Barrel At a recent pure food show In Now York City tho great throngs ol visitors wore na tounded at the remarkable number and variety of foods exhibited, as well as at the high quality and development of the foods themselves. Scientifically it marked a great step forward in the path of right eating and living. Puro food shows of this kind are being held from time to time in all sections of, tho country. And it is said that the exhibition to be held in San Krancisco In 1916, marking the opening of the Panama Canal, will have the greatest display of pure tfood stuffs ever shown. We are rapidly getting away from the open barrel of crack ers, the dirty hogshead of prunes, adulterated this or that, and countless other In iquitous foods that keep our bodies in a turmoil and threaten our lives. One has but to read the ad vertisements in The Dee to note the distinct advance made in preparing and selling the things one eats and feeds to one's children. Good grocers and good manufacturers are telling what the best foods are and where one may buy them. Watch the advertisements in the newspapers and keep your eye on your grocer's window display.
