rrcMdent Itchier Is back from Denver,
where lie went to confer with rcprrsen
tatlvrs ot other Interested railroads re
lative to the union Mutton to be erected
there. According to Mr. Mohlcr tho rail
road men Rot together on every proposi
tion that come lip and as n. remilt tho
depot Ta a certainly, work to .begin and
be pushed along as rapidly as possible
Tho depot at Denver Is not be be nn
entirely nem -tr,ucture. but Instead, vll
be In the nature of an addition to the old
one. thouRh the old ono will be prac
tically rebuilt. Mr. Mohler Is unable to
Mate what the building W.1U cost, as bide
hare not been secured. However, ho snys
It will lie a bnllillng that' will bo modern
and will be a credit to the city.
On his return Mr. Mohlcr stopped at
Hastings, whero Monday, at the new
hold, lie was the guest of the Hastings
Commercial club at a. bann'iet. At this
hamjuct Mr Mohlcr was the chief speaker
of the evening, discussing the develop
ment of railroads, railroad securities,
railroad financing and the government
ownership of railroads.
Mohlcr Principal SprnUcr.
At the banquet covers wero laid for
f.O, nil representative business men of
the city, and ncconllng to Mr. Mohlcr It
was one of the most enjoyable banquets)
that he ever attendrd. It was 1 o'clock
before good nights were snld.
Talking with the business men of
Hastings. Mr. Mohlcr found them most
oi'tlmistlc over the outlook for a good
buHncss year. They are all predicting a
trout wheat crop through Adams and
neighboring counties and they can seo
no reason why land values should not
Increase inaterlnlly thin spring.
Snow of firent Vnluc.
Hnraklng ot tho stitrin, Mr. MohlT
designated It as probably the most sevcro
of the winter, and in his opinion the fall
of snow will be worth a vast sum to tho
agricultural districts of the state. From
Julesburc east n blanket of snow from
six to fifteen Inches thick covers the en-
tire area, while west Into Colorado and
Wyoming, though less, there has been
enough to bo of material benefit. While
the plow has drifted, In tho stnlk and
stubble fields and on the ground where
winter wheat Is growing It hns been held
and enough remains to thoroughly w.t
the roll down several Inches.
Mr. Mohler found that while Nebraska
was burled under the snow the precipita
tion through northern Kansas was equ
ally as great, though there It was either
lain or sleet In Kansas the storm ex
tended from the Missouri river to west
ot Junction City, a distance of more
than 130 milts and south Into Oklahoma.

The city council also employed Mai

BEER IS FOOD
Dr. Von Liebig, one of the world's greatest
chemists, classified it so when he said, "Beer
and-bread are the natural food for the work
ingman". Hard working people need 'whole-

tissues. Beer, therefore, was regarded as such
by this eminent scientist, .
