CORD OF NEBRASKA
OF HIGHEST GRADE
So Uniformly Good that New-
Standard of Grading Prac
tically Has No Effect.
MOISTURE CONTENT IS LOW
The corn in Nebraska and all over
the corn belt which contributes to the
Omaha market is so uniformly good
and hard this year that the new fed
eral standard of grading to go into
effect December 1 will have practi
cally no effect here.
If there is any effect, it will be to
thrqw the? corn that is received Here
largely, into the No. 1 grade.
The moisture content of the corn
coming in here this year," said Chief
Inspector George B. Powell of the
Omaha Grain exchange, "is so low
this year that there will be no notice
able effect. The moisture content at
this time of year orclinarilv is from
19 to 30 per cent. This' year, how
ever, the moisture content right now
runs only from 15 to is'A per cent.
This is excellent hard corn.",
New Federal Standards.
New federal standards of grading
grain, however, are to be, established
for all grains before long. While
the grades for corn are now definitely
established, .the scale of grades for
small grain has not yet been decided
upon, tt is likely that a standard ot
moisture content will be fixed for
wheat also, which will be a new fea
ture in wheat inspection.
The United Mates Department ot
Agriculture has been working on a
scale for small grains for a long time,
and the tentative scale of grades this
department is working out is to be
released about December 4. This
does not mean that it will go into ef
fect then. The tentative scae will
merely be made public, and be open
for criticism from grain men all over
the United States. Meetings of grain
nnai will then be held at Omaha,
Kansas Citv and other leading mar
kets, where the proposed grades will
be discussed and criticized. The De
partment of Agriculture invites criti
cism and suggestions as to the im
provement of the scale it will pro
pose. - ,
To Receive Suggestions.
After thorough discussions are held
throughout the country, and after the
government has received the sugges
tions of the grain men all over the
country, the federal, department will
again take; up the question and per
haps revise the scale in accordance
with the best crop of suggestions re
ceived. It will thelrgive,a ninety-day
notice before promulgating the new
scale ot grades definitely, the scale
Will probably not actually go into ef
fect before June 1, 1917. .
--The -local office of the inspector will
have to be fitted up with certain ap
paratus tor testing the grains in ac
cordance with the rules. Standard
apparatus will then be used all jovcr
the United States for this testing.
For Interstate Use.
The new standard of grades on all
grain, however, applies only to inter
state traffic of grain. - Only a small
percentage of the grain received in
Omaha come from without the state.
This does not lessen the work of in
spection here, however, as all incom
ing grains will have to be inspected
with the utmost care, in order to pro
tect the local dealers on grain theV
will ship out of the state, where it will
have to stand the federal test. Thus,
while only a small percentage of the
grain here comes from outside the
state, a very great percentage ot it
goes out of the state after it is
handled here. ,
Actress Left Fifty
Thousand Pounds by
London. Nov. 29. A Berne dispatch
to the Wireless Press says that the
will of Emperor Francis Joseph pro
vides a legacy of 50,000 to the ac
tress Katliarina Schratt. This part of
the will, the dispatch says, was dated
some years ago. Princess I'.lizabctli

Katherina Schartl, formerly of the
Imperial theater, for years was an inti
mate of Emperor Francis Joseph. At

was accustomed to appear nearly
every afternoon to keep the emperor
company for an hour or two. He in
turn called at her town house, where
he was iible to meet friends of his
own choosing and not guests imposed
on him by etiquet or reasons ot slate.
The relations between the two con
tinued in the emperor's old age and
became accepted in Vienna, where the
severe criticism they caused in earlier
years, before the death of the empress
gradually died away.

Sheriff Gives Testimony ,for
Prosecution in the Trial of
JTeiper, Accused of Slay
OTHER WITNESSE? '
Funeral o'pf, It Is
Buffao, N. Y Nov. 29. Through
Edward Stengel, sheriff of Erie
county, the prosecution today
tinued ifs circumstantial case against
John Edward Teiper, charged with
the murder of his mother, Mrs. Agnes
Teiper. These points were brought
out by Sheriff Stengel:
That Teiper's car, which he said he
had left broken down in the Orchard
park road on the afternoon preceding
the tragedy last January, was started
without any trouble the next morning
by a mechanic, who merely inserted
a magneto brush. ,
Denies Revolver His.
That Teiper, when questioned by
the then District Attorney W. C.
Dudley, at first denied ownership of
the sevolver found near the scene of
the murder, but later, after the dis
trict attorney had telephoned in
Teiper's hearing to the man who sold
the revolver, Teiper admitted that the
pistol was his.
That Teiper, guarded by the sheriff
at the funeral of his mother and
brother, Frederick, had manifested
not the slightest grief or emotion
throughout the service or burial.
Tool Box Closed. .
Sheriff Stengel also testified that
the tool box on Teiper's roadster, in
which Teiper told him he kept the re
volver, was tightly closed when the
sheriff examined the car after his ar
rival at the murder scene. The box
was between two seats of the roadster
and had a cushion covering it. The
cushion was jammed tightly into
place, the sheriff said..
The jurors examined closely cuts
in the coat and shirt that Teiper wore
on the night of the tragedy. Sheriff
Stengel said that Teiper had called his
attention to these on the day after
the murder. "TJiat fellow must haye
hid a knife," said Teiper, pointing to
the cuts. "
Nothing on Arm.
There was no scratch or bruise on
Teiper's arm on the morning after the
murder,-the sheriff 'testified:
Sheriff Stengel said District Attor
ney Dudley showed Teiper the re
volver which had been found in a
field nearj the murder scene. Teiper
said that it was not his. Mr. Dudley
telephoned to a merchant in Orchard
Park and asked if he ha'd sold a re
volver to Teipctr. He repeated the
man's answer that the revolver had
been sold on January 21 or 22, about
a week before the murder. Teiper
then called the district attorney from
the telephone and acknowledged that
the revolver was his, the sheriff testi
"Why did you say it was ot then?"
Mr. Dudley asked.
Story of Other Witnesses.
"I didn't want to incriminate my
self," replied Teiper, according to the
Other witnesses today , told of the
revolver, tire iron, andJeiper's watch
found in the field near the place where
the murders of Teiper's motherland
brother were committed. The watch
bore Teiper's initials and had a nie-
Uture of his child in the case.

A GLOOMY OUTLOOK
Why Some Nebraikam Haven't
Even an Automobile to Be
MERE ' MILLIONS IN .CHOPS
By A. R. OROH.
Thanksgiving dayl O, friends, wot ft
mockeryl Wot ft hollow mockeryt
What have we to be thankful for,
when we look about us and see many
families in this great state of Nebrai
ka who haven't even got an automo
bile? Some are struggling along with
out a piano. Vies, my friends, and the
charitable associations know of eases
where there are destitute families
without even a talking machine I
These are facts that must be looked
squarely in tne lace. -
Ou-soil this year produced 183,
3CKU bushels of corn, worth $128,
320,Ow, a mere bagatelle of $107 for
each man, woman and child in the
state. The other crops were worth
about $183,000,000, or $153 for each
person in the state. , '
Nearly a Billion.
In agriculture, .live stock, dairy,
fruit and manufactures the state pro
duced this year $850,000,000, which
would be a mere $708 for each man,
woman and child. - ' '
It calls to our despairing minds the
beautiful words of the poic:
'"Nothing to Mt but foQj
Nothing to breathM but air. ,
Nothing to wr but cloth
. To keep ui from going bare,
"Nothing to upend but .(fkeh.
Nothing, aim. e,lH:k! '
Nowhere to go hut out, '
Nowhere to come but back."
Two Head Apiece.
As far as our beef supply is con
cerned, only 2,443,000 cattle stand be
tween us and starvation. This is only
about two head of cattle for each
man, woman and child. There are
only about one and one-fourth hogs
in the slate for each man, woman and
child and only about ten chickens for
each man, woman and child.
In the state and national banks of
Nebraska the people have on deposit
but $300,000,000, or about $250 for
each person. Of course, this doesn't
include savings banks and building
and loan associations.
Proofs of Poverty.
Nebraska's egg crop this year
wasn't worth much more than all the
gold and silver mined in Colorado
Nebraska's agricultural and live
stock production this year was worth
only a little more than all the coal
mined and used in the entire nation
in the year.
All the products of Nebraska's soil
for the year could be carried on a
train less than 13,000 miles long.
In short, our wealth isn't half as
great as it would be if it were t'tree
time as great.
But let us pluck up courage. Let it
never be said of us that we gave up
when prospects were so dark that we
couldn't see our way to owning a
limousine. True, some of our people
will have to get through the winter
talking machines. But next year .may
bring brighter hopes and the poor
who today lack such necessities as au
tomobiles may all have them.
