This "Pegay" dame says she's got plenty
of good looks, lots of Jack and an am
bitious ma, and you go r ght ahead an.!
spill your dope without even asking
where she got her qualifications. That
lets me In. I got my dough with four
Kings and my beauty from a Movie Guide.
Now, I'm considerable guy myself. If I
do say It. and though of the opposite acx,
from the form-chart, I can't figure where
the filly has anything on me, except the
ambitious ma. What I lack there, how
ever, I make up by offering my reputa
tion as reference. My record Includes
forty knockouts, five draws and no de
feats, out of forty-five times at bat.
which makes my average a even .KM).
I am already an active member of the

PUBLIC SHOULD BE
FAIR TO RAILWAYS
Dr. John P. Munn Point Out that
Omaha Would Be Mere Frontier
Post Without Railroads.
AMAZED AT OMAHA'S PROGRESS
"In the future Of railroading I be-
lieve public opinion and other eie-!
. ... . .... . i
menta will be more fair to the rail- j
roads than they have been In the i
post," declared Dr. John P. Munn, I
heavy railroad stockholder of New 1
York, at the University club, where
he was the honor guest at a luncheon
of local railway officials.
"People are Just beginning to reallr.e
how very essential the railroads are.
Without them, Omaha would still be a
little frontier trading post, Instead of the
marveloualy developed and Important city
It is today. I am amaied at the progress
shown by this city, and everybody ad
mits that It could not have occurred
without the railroads.
Question of Concern.
"Railroads, Instead of war, form the
greatest question before the American
public today. Railroad securities com
prise the majority of the assets of most
of the great fiduciary Institutions, so un
less the railroads are treated fairly and
prosper, the financial institutions will
experlenoe a serious slump."
Dr. Munn, who was formerly the Inti
mate friend and private physician of
Jay Gould, Russell Sage and Cornelius
Vanderbult, Is chairman of the railroad
department of the International commit
tee of the Young Men's Christian associa
tion. The local luncheon was given by
the Omaha association.
Mention was made of the probability
of establishing a railroad association In
Omaha, but the project Is still a matter
to be worked out In the future, with no

H was a wild and erratic market on
the Omaha Grain exchange, and with
heavy receipts there was business enough
for all the traders. The wheat market,
with 143 carloads on sale, opened strong
and commenced to climb as the offerings
were made, continuing without a break.
Wheat sold all the way from 94 cents to
$1.03 per bushel. The top was the highest
of any time within the last three months.
While local dealers will not venture a
positive opinion as to the future, they are
Inclined to look for higher wheat from
now on. They learn that a fleet of the
largest vessels have arranged to sail from
gulf ports, carrying grain to Europe, and
that the prospects are decidedly favor
able for exportation.
Corn was In sypmathy with wheat, and
while the advance was not so great,
p'lces went up 1 cent to li Old corn
sold at 62 and 69 and new at 62 and 65
cents per bushel. Receipts were thirty-
Oats ms.de an advance of H to H cent
and sold at 88 and 39 cents per bushel,
the high price since early last fall. There
were twenty-five carloads on the market.
HUTCHINSON WILL CLOSE
Sam Hutchinson, tourist agent for the
Union Paciflo and Northwestern, went
west from Omaha Wednesday night to
San Francisco, where Saturday night at
midnight he will lock the exposition gates
and declare the show closed. He lshe
only official of the two roads who will
be on hand for the final expoaition func
tion. Hutchinson was present when the
gates swung open last spring and he
feels that It Is his duty to be on hand
when they are finally closed.
