Harel Maxwell, is a prominent South
Side girl. At the time of their mar

and his wife was just 18.
Mrs. Geisler charges extreme cru

F. W. Judson, general manager of
the Midland Glass and Paint com
pany, took 200 of his employe's to
the Frontier Days' show this year in
stead of giving them the regular pic
nic which has been tendered them
"I have heard so much of the Fron
tier Days' show that I simply cannot
resist giving my employes the benefit
of seeing one of the most wonderful
exhibitions ever given in Omaha," Mr.
Judson asserted. "It is not only en
tertaining, but educational as well,
showing as it does the old pioneer
days in real living pictures that do
more to impress one than any printed
or written story.
"I feel that it will also make the
boys and girls have even a higher re
spect for their wonderful city, Omaha,
because it will clearly show that it
was but a few years ago when it be
gan to feel the 'civilizing influences of
the strong characters who have
builded it from a prarie town to a
wonderful mid-west metropolis. Yes,
it will be a fine thing for my boys
and girls to see this show."

The black rust scare in the Dakotas
and Minnesota this morning forced
wheat up fast on the Omaha market.
and the bidding was the most spirited
seen in years. Cash wheat and fu
tures leaped upward and upward, and
still the millers and the traders in fu
tures continud to bid.
Mill representatives from north,
east and south were on the floor bid
ding for the No. 2 hard Nebraska
wheat until they ran It up from $1.05
to ?1.M a bushel and lapped up prac
tically the entire 100,000 bushels of
fered on the market. Twentv-two car
loads brought the top figure. On
cash wheat the advance was Vi to 3
cents per bushel.
The trading in futures mounted to
some 500,000 bushels, probably the
heaviest trading in futures done in
Omaha this year. This was for Sep
tember and December delivery. The
Sentember ODtion ooened at S1.08i
and went to $1.12. The December

The demand for wheat was brisk
and the bidding spirited, outside buy

thing offered, regardless of the 2 to
3 cents advance that came over night
and which held during the entire ses
sion. The cause for the sharp advance
was attributed to a continuation of
rust damage reports coming from the
fields of Minnesota and the Dakotas.
Some of the reports were to the ef
fect that in the Dakotas and in north
ern Minnesota, many fields have been
so badly damaged that the yield,
which is of a poor quality, will not
be sufficient to pay tor the harvest

wheat, though not to such a great ex
