THE BEE: OMAHA, WEDNESDAY, JANUAKlf 3, ltflY.
Slight Decrease Shown Since
- November, but Cain Over a
Year Ago is Great.
LOANS SSCW AS INCREASE
' Altliough a decrease of a little less
than $1,000,000 is shown in corapaf
ison to the last call, November 17,
1916, bank deposits in Omaha are to
day $30,000,000 greater than a year
ago. A bank call for December 27,
1916, by the United States comp
troller brings out these figures.
The total bank deposits in the thir
ieen banks in this city on December
.7 were $95,746,568. On December
.11, 1915, hen the comptroller issued
his final call of that year, the total
deposits were $65388,138. Every sin
gle bank shows a gain in deposits
over one vear affO.
On November 17, 1916, the date of
the comptroller s last previous call,
the deposits in local banks were $96,
701,497. This slight loss, however,
bankers assert has no significance.
They also aver the new year business
is starting briskly, and had the comp
troller issued his call for statements
a few days later, a -am would be
marked up. Some of the banks, the
First, Live Stock, Packers, Omaha
State, Security State, American State
and South Omaha Savings banks did
make small gains in deposits.
Loans and discounts show an in
crease over both one year ago and
the time of the last previoos call, in
' dicating a greatly stimulated busiress
even since. November.
The comparative figures are as fol

To Seahoard Are
I Extremely Heavy
During the last forty-eight hours
there have been some heavy ship
ments of wheat toward the Atlantic
seahoard and as a result the surplus
stock of wheat in Omaha elevators
has been greatly reduced. All told,
in the elevators here the surplus ex
ceeds that of the corresponding date
of last year by only 420,000 bushels,
the lowest in the last three months.
Hushcls of grain in storage in
Omaha elevators now and on the cor-
' responding date of last year are
l lata 1,044,000
Rye 10. 000
Totals 1,140,000 1.120,000
The corn in storage is 68,000 buSti
cls less than on this day one year ago,
.' but this condition is expected to
' change shortly. It is asserted that
.-' the steady advance in corn prices
during the last week will start the
, crop moving and that during the next
: few days receipts will be heavy. Some
' talk cf dollar corn is again heard.
''The cash market today touched 89
' cents a bushel, the highest price in
more than a month.
' Guardsmen's Positions Held
Open for Them by Employers
That guardsmen who joined the
colors when they were called by the
president would not lose their former
. jobs over the act was the belief of
Colonel George A. Eberly. The com
manding officer of the Fourth regi
ment said that he has a number of
, letters from firms saying they would
keep the positions of their former
employes open until they were mus
; tered out.
Many large firms were co-operating,
.. he said, in trying to find places for
. the guardsmen. As a particular exam
; pie ne cited the stock yards, which
... stent him word that it would find room
: . for ten of the returned soldiers.
Other officers said they have a num-
ber of men in their companies, how
ever, that they would like to place.
Firms who had promised to keep
' the pay of their employes going while
they went to the border made good
., in almost every instance, officers said.

Says Fifty-Six Hundred
Pounds of Horse Hit Him
The trial of George W. Rinkler,
who filed suit against the Ringling
Brothers' circus for $25,000 is on in
the federal court.
Rinkler, an Omaha brick mason, as
serts that he was watching a Ringling
Brothers parade near the federal
building in August, 1914. A team be
came unmanageable, he asserts in his
petition, bolted into the crowd,
knocked him down, and before the
animals could be controlled, four of
them, big dappled grays weighing at
least 1,400 pounds each, ran over him.
As a result he claims that he has
been made a helpless cripple for life.
Smashes Furniture and Kills
Chicks; Nagging Wife Blamed
Angered at his wife, whom he said
"nagged" him continually, Bert John
son, a bill poster living at 2826 Charles
street, last night commenced to break
up housekeeping with the aid of an
axe instead of a lawyer.
He demolished some of the furni
ture and then went out into the chick
en coop and slew all of his fine
blooded chickens and hacked them
into gory hash. When the police ar
rived he was already subdued by his
wife with the aid of a stove poker.

twice as much as common grades. The makers
oi jmy-jeu control ou per cent of all this grade
The flavors are made from the fruit itself.
Not one is artificial. They are made by concen
trating the fresh fruit juice. So they give to
Jiffy-Jell the flavor of ripe fruit newly picked.
You have never tasted anything like them in a
Flavors in Vials
To preserve these flavors
with all their freshness they are
sealed up in glass vials. The
vial is placed in the package.
The flavors cannot grow
stale, as do flavors mixed with
the gelatine. They always taste
as fruit tastes when it comes
from the vine or tree.
Another great advantage is this : You make
Jiffy -JeLV like all gelatine dainties, by pouring
boiling water on it When the flavor is mixed
with the gelatine powder the hot water scalds
it, of course. It is no longer a fresh fruit flavor.
But in Jiffy-Jell you add the flavor when the
jell has partly cooled. So the dessert comes to
your table with the fresh fruit flavor, just as it
is bottled and sealed.

Amrica'i Modtl Food Plant
When you learn by a
test what a difference that
makes, 'you will never re
turn to any old-style dessert.
Jiffy-Jell and its flavors
have been approved by
Dr. Allyn under Westfield
standards. Also by Dr.
Wiley of Good Housekeeping Bureau.
Fifty Quick Desserts
Jiffy -Jell places at your command at least
fifty quick, fruity desserts. One package makes
six or eight dishes.
' You can make a dessert with the flavor alone
in a jiffy. Or you can add fruit, or nuts, or
chocolate sauce, or whipped cream.

Nothing else you can make will end a dinner in
such a dainty and palatable way.
Jiffy-Jell comes sweetened and colored, ready
for instant use. There are seven flavors rasp
berry, strawberry, cherry, orange, lemon, pine
apple and lime. The lime is a tart, green gar
nish navor, tor serving
with meats and salads.

your sake, we urge
you to try it. It is the
finest dessert dainty
