The crop report of the Northwestern
railroad, covering all of the state north

conditions up to Inst Ssturday night. Is
en. Intended to gladden the hearts of all
who have to do with the soli and Us
Through the whole of the north half
of the state, according to the report of
the Northwestern, . weather conditions
were Ideal. It was warm, with Just
enough rain to keep vegetation booming.
As a result, oorn made marvelous head'
way. Everywhere the corn has tasseled:
In many localities the silk has com
menced to dry up, and In others the eara
are well along In their formation. It la
asserted that with frost holding off a
reasonable length of time, prospects were
never better for a bumper crop.
s to the small grain In Northwestern
territory, It Is all cut and much of It in
the stack. Considerable threshing has
been done and the yield has ranged from
twenty to thirty-eight bushels per acre.
Outs have made a good crop, yielding
from forty to sixty bushels.'
Cash Wheat Takes
Jump Up in Omaha
While the wheat options for September
and subsequent deliveries remained
steady to unchanged from Monday, cash
wheat en the Omaha market advanced
I to S cents, this being attributed to a
if port from New. Yorfc that t.WO.000
tmshela had ben bought fur Immediate sx
jorL There was no old wheat on the
market. The offerings were thirty-five
carloads, all of this year's crop and all
from Nebraska. Prices ranged from
11.06 to 11.14.
Com was In good demand and H cent
up. There were twenty-nine carloads,
selling at N7t.ic per bushel.
Oats were strong and good Sellers,
fetching n to V cents. The receipts
were eighteen carloads.
LOAN SHARKS WILL
TRY TOJEAT LAW
Employ Attorneys and Case of City
Against Inlet Althaus Appealed
to Supreme Court.
WILL ACT AS A TEST CASE
Chattel and salary loan dealers of
Omaha hare combined In an effort to
defeat in the courts the anti-loan
shark law paused by the last legisla
ture. They have retained the law
firm of 8mytht Smith 8chall, as a
result of whose efforts a former anti
loan shark law was knocked, out and
a test case, has been started on its
way to the supreme court.
Attorney Schall, who will attempt to
convince the supreme court that the law
ahould be held void, maintains that It Is
unconstitutional on the alleged grounds
that It is special legislation and that It
takes property without due process of
law. Attorney J. P. Palmer, who as a
member of the legislature fathered the
law, will take an active Interest In as
sisting the city legal department to do-
Case Is Appealed,
A test case Initiated In police court and
appealed to district court by Jule Althaus,
the defendant, was quickly disposed of by
District Judge Sears, who fined Althaus
125 for violations of the law which he ad
mitted. Judge Sears held that the law
was constitutions! and Attorney Schall
Immediately took an appeal.
Althaus was charged In police court by
Attorney T. J. McOuIre, representing the
city, with having engaged In the chattel
and salary loan business without securing
a city license and with having charged
more than 19 per cent, the maximum rate
of interest allowed by the anti-loan shark
law. AlthauS admitted the facts as al
leged and appealed to district court. Fol
lowing an immediate hearing ha was fined
126. A motion for arrest of Judgment on
the ground that the law was unconsti
tutional waa filed In his behalf, which
was overruled by Judge Sears. By this
means the case was carried to the su
preme court without delay.
The anti-loan shark law provides that
chattel and salary loan dealers may not
charge more than 10 per cent, but that
they may charge fees for examination
of applicants and for preparing papers.
Attorney Schall Indicated that the de
fense may turn this clause 1o advantage
In the attack on the' constitutionality of
the measure, by alleglne that the clause
discriminates stfnlnet banks and other
financial agencies, which have not the
privilege of charging such fees. The clause
is a subterfuge to permit loan men to
eharga more than 10 per cent interest, ac
cording to Attorney Schall.

LARS IS FAR TOO LONG TO
SLEEP IN NAVY HAMMOCKS
The local navy recruiting station waa
compelled to reject an applicant for en
ll.iment In th navy Monday because of
his sxtreme he'ght. The man who ap
j'lfd gave his name as Lorn Helmundaen
of Waieca. Minn. He was physically per
fect, but was refused because he waa six
feet and six Inches tall, the limit In the
navy being six feet feet two. The ex
l lintijoa of this rule Is that men who
are over all feet two are constantly In
danger of striking their heads on the
tapper decks of the ships, and Inasmuch as
ibesa decks are thickly covered with
houks from which the hammocks hang
at night the danger Is not small. Besides
this reason another Is given. The hern
mocks used by the men are all of e
standard length in order to fit ths hooks
they hang from and a man six feet six
would txj tied in knots should be be
forced to sleep In a six-foot hammock.

Why These Will Be Sold at
We the Omaha Gas Company aro new to this bar
gain idea. And so, we wonder whether we can tell you
about these offerings in such a manner that you will un
derstand that they ARE EEAL bargains. It has to do
with Gas Ranges and all manner of Lighting Fixtures.
They usually sell at the full prices because they are good
values at regular prices. But this is different. You see
these things are slightly damaged, and that accounts
for the reductions.
There are Gaa Rancee tuaranteed good aa
new, but because they have been used a tew
week a they have been reduced. Other Ran see
are merely ahop worn a little rust on top
where water dripped, upon them but out
they go at cut prices.
Then there are fixtures of every descrip
tion Water Heaters, Heating Stores, com
bination Gaa and Electric Fixtures, Domes,
Portable Brackets,- assorted Shades, Globes,
Welsbach Lamps, Gas Toasters, and odds and
ends of every description. There la not space
here to tell of everything nor to quote values.
You chould come to our display rooms and
see for yourself. Surely you will be surprised
at the savings possible.
Gome at once, because when people fee what great
values we are giving, things will po rapidly. It simply
means we must toll perfectly, good Gas Appliances at cut
prices because they are 6hop worn or slightly used.
