GRAIN EXCHANGE TO
CLOSE FOR TODAY
On account of what tha members desig
nate aa an Illegal holiday, the room of
the Omaha Grain exchange will be
closed this afternoon. The occasion Is
tha annual outing of the Grain exchange
The Omaha grain market waa strong,
wheat selling 23Hc above tha price
of Wednesday. The sale, however, were
made before reports came In from all
over the country, announcing the return
of perfect harvest weather. Price then
aagged off, following Chicago, which waa
down aome 3c on wheat and nearly aa
much on corn and oats.
Receipts continued light, there being
but two car of wheat offered. Corn re
celpta were twenty-two carloada and
Omaha price were up ie, the sales
being made at TOgTOo.
Oats were He up and the ten carloada
sold at 9&&04c per bushel.
Along the lines of the Infor
mation first prlntel by The Bee,
conference or no conference,
mediation or no mediation, the
Omaha j Electric Light and Power
company proposes to wait for none
of these, but will go ahead and offer
a reduced rate schedule to the pub
lic very shortly, and while officials
cannot be Induced to say much about
it. it is hinted that It will be effec
tive for the July bill. Thus while
the Commercial club special commit
tee appointed to mediate difference
between the city council and the elec
tric light company, is getting ready
to mediate them, the company is go
ing ahead independently with a
schedule of reduced rates.
I. B. Zlmman, contract agent of the
company, when asked concerning the
matter, said "I really dont know any
thing about It."
General Harries, president of the elec
tric light company, knows all about it,
but he la not talking much. When he
does talk, he talks on subjects foreign to
electrlo light rates.
Anyway, the new rate voluntarily pro
posed by the company, will cost the con
sumer for llehtlng purposes 8 centa per
ktlownt hour for the first twenty-five
kllowata, and 5V& centa for tho rext 125.
Then It will oet. 4 centa per . kllowat
for the uext 1.E00 kllowata, and corres
ponding redtu?Uona per kllowat will be
made for greater amount.
"It waa hard for ue to understand,"
said General Harries, "how the other

aroused auch universal protest when we
were voluntarily cutting down our groaa

At no time should people be more care

during the hot weather. Constipation
should be guarded against especially, as
many serious, and often fatal, diseases
are traceable to neglect.
Some people find that certain fruits
have a laxative effect, but this cannot
always be depended upon: a mild laxa-llve-tonic
that will act gently, yet posi
tively, without griping or shock to the
ftyetom, is far preferable. A combination
