GERMAN ARMY CORPS
CUT, OFF FROM MAIN BODY
LONDON, Sept. ll.-A Paris dispatch to
the Dally Chronicle says:
"In the haste of the German' latest
retrograde movement many regiment of
German have been cut off and remain
In the wooded country within the triangle
of Senlls, Gonesse and Dammartln. It Is
believed that they amount In all to about
one army corps. They have been cut off
from the main body by the allies' linei
between Complegne and Meaux and their
situation Is precarious.
"The remarkable resistance of the
fortress at Maubeuge to the Invading Ger
mans is one of the most interesting fea
ture of the campaign. Because of Its
stubborn stand it has undoubtedly seri
ously embarrassed the Germans In bring
ing up field guns against Paris and main
taining their communication.
"Laon and Le Fere have been Invested
by the German and have perhaps fallen."
Joe Opritea. Roumanian, JO years old.
died last nleht at the South Omaha hos
pltnl of wounds inflicted In a fight last
Saturday n'ght over Joe Jerman'a saloon
at Twenty-sixth and P street by John
Bhuta. Mike Duln, also wounded in the
same fight, I still holding hie own at
the South Omaha hospital. Opritea wa
practically disembowelled by Shuta't
knife and Duln had hi throat cut.
There was little hope of saving the life
o! Opritea. but physicians hope that Duln
will live. Shuts, the man accused of the
crime. Is confined at the police station,
where he was taken Immediately after the
affray last Saturday night. He refuses
to discuss the case. According to Detec
tive Mike Glllln, the men had trouble some
days before the fight. It Is said that
Shuta was the aggressor. When told of

Southern Market Affept Una
It I a far call from the feed lot of
Nebraska' farms to the cotton fields of
the south, and yet the connection be
tween the two is such that the local hog
market yesterday was practically at a
standstill In South Omaha. There were
only sixty carloads of hogs received and
all were disposed of, but hog men stated
that unless some way Is found to move
the cotton of the south the hog market
will be hot to pieces for some time to
come. According to one of the large hog
dealer at the yardB, this season generally
bring out the call for hog meat for the
negroes and cotton field worker of the
south.. This year the cotton market ;i
tied up on account of the war and In con
sequence the planter and the cotton men
are not buying pork meat and bacon
The temper of the market yesterday was
decidedly gloomy In view of the continua
tion of the war.
Hone Price Way tfp.
Horsemen at the yards say that the
erroneous report of foreign horse buyers
ha sent the prices soaring;. A week ago
a reiHJrt got out that army men from Eu
rope were buying horse for the war. In
consequence It Is said the farmers
promptly ran the prices up and now every
old plug ha taken on an added value In
the eyes of his speculative owner.
As a matter of fact it la said that an
order for 30,000 horse was placed In Can
ada markets by the belligerent. Thl or
der was then subdivided. About 100 or IS
horse were purchased at tho local yard
for the war. It Is said. The prices paid
ranged from 175 to 9125. tho last figure
being the final word of the purchasers.
Now It Is said the farmers are holding
their stock away up In the air and in
consequence things are a bit slow. The
horse dealers are the innocent bystand
er in the case and are suffering.
Back from state Fair.
Tired, but enthusiastic, the local dele
gation from the state fair arrived homo
