of ebbing hopes, of dumb despair,

He had been cheerful earlier in the
year, when hope beat high. But now,
with only three days left, his disap
pointment was such that he could not

FARMERS BUY MORE
AUTOS, LESS TOOLS
Indications Art; Machinery
Sales Will Show railing Off
for the Last Year.
MUST BUT NEXT TEAS
It is estimated by W. D, Hosford
of the John beere Flow company
that the total sales of implements
during the year will show little, if
any, above last year's record, and that
it may be a trifle below. . 1
This Mr. Hosford attributes to the
heavy sales of automobiles which
brought about a drain upon tbe farm
ers. ' "Indications are," said Mr. Hos
ford. "that so many farmers bought
automobiles, this year that they made
their old farm machinery do through
the year as far as possible in ,order
to meet the cost of an automobile.
Next year we confidently look for the
biggest year in the history of the im
plement business in Omaha. It is
olain that if they made their old ma
chinery do this year they cannot make
it do again next year, and that is the
year they will nave to buy imple
ments." The imolement men are well satis
fied, however, with the year's business,
and say it was a prosperous one, even
if the vqlume did not pile up higher
than last year.

Clever Crook Collects
A Money from Housewives
Threes-Omaha housewives within
the last two days have been victims
of a clever swindler at work in resi
dential districts at what is known to
the police as the "reuben blue." Mrs,
Helen Bennett, 617 South Sixteenth
street, lost $10, as did Mrs. R. Ro
land, 2219 South Seventeenth street
Mrs. Lutie Davis, 1715 Cass, was
miked of ?5.
"Reuben Blue" calls at the houses
and tells the housewives that he has
for sale, at very low prices, eggs,
meats and choice vegetables ' fresh
from the farm. His wagon is "just
around the corner" and he takes their
order and their money. Then he
vanishes. - , s
Police officials have a good descrip

NO OMAHAN WANTED

GIVE OTHER CITIES CHANCE
If any Omaha man wants to get
on the board of directors of the pro
posed Omaha federal farm loan bank
he will receive no encouragement
from the Omaha committee which
worked so hard to get a land bank
here. .The committee feels' that get
ting the bank is enough for Omaha
and that the directorate should be .
chosen from other cities within the
district, such as Lincoln, Des Moines
and some South Dakota or Wyoming
This was brought out at a meeting
of the committee held at noon in tbe
Commercial club rooms to jolly one
another on the good fortune they had
in getting i bank for Omaha.

property was acquired some months

Ready to Fill Jobs
In New Land Bank
A lot of Omaha democrats could
not go to sleep last night, so deep
were their thoughts concerning the
new federal farm loan bank which
has been awarded to Omaha. The
situation carries with it several choice
appointments with which they hope
the democratic administration will re
member its own.
When the bank shall have been
established here in fact, it will be
necessary to have somebody - in
charge. A story comes from Wash
ington to the effect that Arthur Mul
len, national committeeman, while
there sought to groom Chris Gruen
ther for the job. Chris abides at
Columbus and stands ace-high with
the Mullen wing of the Nebraska
democracy. He was campaign man
ager for, Senator Hitchcock during the
recent vote-getting contest and a sort
of entente cordiale exists between .
Messrs. -Hitchcock, Mullen and
Gruenther. But the suggestion is
said to have been rebuffed as being
impregnated with too much politics.'
Carol S. Montcotnerv. anothar
democratic wheel horse, has ' been
mentioned for tbe place and Frank G.
Odell's name has Seen heard in con-'
nection with a position of some kind
in the federal farm loan bank service.

Congestion in East -,
Worse Than West
"Congestion may be great on the
western lines; in fact it is so great
we have deemed it expedient to de
clare an embargo, but the Union Pa
cific is like a lily pond compared to
the railroads in the east," declares
Charles Lane, general freight agent
of the Union Pacific, who has just
returned from a short Christmas va
cation at Grand Rapids. '
"In Detroit" said Lane, "there are
25,000 cars and that terminal is com
pletely plugged up. It is impossible
to bo through the town. The con
gestion is simply appalling. And
that congestion in Detroit, of course,
affects all points east ,
"You know they say home is the
place you get the best and Of which
you complain the most That's the
way witn our western roads. Out
here we complain of the congestion
on our own roads, but the Union Pa
cific is free and clear compared to the
roads in the east"
