Hogs A pretty liberal run of hogs were
hers for opening day of the week, arrivals
counting out 15t 'cars, or something like
11,300 head. This Is morn than twice aa
large s for a week ago. but is over 1.000
short of the corresponding Monday last
ear, two weeks ago there was no market.
Blf runs were fairly general, and early In
the morning it looked like any further ad
vance waa out of th question for today
at least. . Early prospects from Chicago
were for an unchanged market, and con
sequently when shippers came out bidding
pncea tut, were steady to strong on nrsl
rounds they got s number of hogs that
wsy. , i
Later developments showed that setters
had underestimated the strength of the de
mand, hi I .o'clock other points were re
porting advances, and local packers who
had hot done much early, had to pay
higher prices right from the very start.
Th market waa another uneven affair, and
while in spots price were little better than
Isst week, other sales looked as much as a
dime and even Iftc higher, and the market
averaged up around &10o higher than the
close of last week. The shipper demand
waa not as urgent aa on moat days last
week, and order buyer did not take so
large a share of the offerings as they have
been, but packer requirements were large
and while movement slowed down at timon.
price were juat aa high on closing rounds
us at any time of th day.
As Is not unusual on a Monday quality
wss not aa good a on last week's close,
there being more of a sprinkling of the
ordinary mixed stuff In the offerings. So.
if anything, the market can be credited
with more of an upturn than It shows on
paper, Bulk of the offerings at 110.100
10.50 and an extreme top of 110.46 waa
paid. These pricea ar higher than over
before In January. '

Sheep The largest Monday sheep and
Ismb ran here since Ave weeks ago waa
offered this morning, seventy-seven cars, or
some 18.000 head, being reported in. This
is far larger than the holiday run a week
iigo and is slightly heavier than for the
(.or responding day last year.
The fat lamb market was another of the
slew affairs that were so common last
week. Local receipt were liberal, the
largest on the map In fact, though be
tween a fourth and a third of the run was
of feeders, and Kansas City had a generous
supply, but outside these two points runs
were moderate all around the loop. Pack
er tried to use the big supply here as a
club to enforce 16020c reductions, but sell
ers held on for steady prices and In the
nd packers raised their hands, buying- the
'bulk of the offerings in last week's notches.
It was largely a 913.00Oll.3t affair for the
decent to beat lam be. While little sold un
til It o'clock or after, pretty nearly every
thing had changed hands by lunch time,
movement being fairly active after a trad
ing basis had been agreed on. No clipped
lambs were offered.
The liberal feeder run was the first one
of any also that ha been here in some
lime. Close to twenty-five cars of feeding
and shearing lambs were on offer, but
buyers uncovered some big orders and the
result was that th supply moved in a
hurry at figures that were safely 10015c
higher than last week. A couple of big
strings sold at 912-70 and other landed at
III. 56, wbll as high aa 911.76 waa paid
- for one four-load band.

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS.
Prospect of Heavy Kxport Give the Price
An I' p ward Turn.
Chicago, Jan. 1. Highest prices for
wheat since the American civil war ac
companied announcement today of a big
shrinkage In , the domestic supply, while
European food shortage appeared to be
growing more acute. No. 2 red winter
w hea t. a standard cont rac t grad e, com -manded
$3 a bushel spot cash, fulfilling at
last prophecies that were treated with derls
slons when trans-Atlantic hostilities first
broke out. After a notable display of activ
ity, as well as strength, the market closed
unsettled at the same as Saturday's finish
to ye higher with May options, $1.88
to $1.88, and July. $1.63 to $1.63
Other leading staples alt showed net gains
corn Ha to o; oat c to lc, and pro
visions, lO013Ha to 76c.
Despite heavy profit taking by holders,
the greater part of the day's bulge In
wheat value remained In force at th
end of the session. From the outset the
fact had been apparent that the weekly
total of the Untied States visible supply
would exhibit a decided felling off, and
there wss no surprise when In the final hour
the aggregate was found to have dwindled
more than 2,600.000 bushels, leaving the
stock about 13,000,009 bushels under th
amount available at the corresponding time
last year. The bullish effeot of the visible
supply figures ami of continued evidence of
brisk export inquiry was accentuated by the
decided anti-peace stand which appeared to
havo been taken by the entente allies' con
ference in Rome.
Sentiment favoring higher prices on wheat
resulted to a considerable extent from at
tention to (he full text of remarks which
Lloyd George recently msds In Parliament
bearing on the scarcity of bread stuffs in
Great Britain. The utterances of the Eng.
llsh premier were taken by many dealers
here as signifying an Intention on his part
to broaden greet ly the efforts to obtain an
increased store of wheat from the United
Corn like wheat rose to the highest pricea j
sine th civil war. May delivery of corn
selling at 11 a bushel. Export buying wan
reported snd there were advices telling
drought In Argentina and of sensational
upturns in quotations there. Oat merel;
reflected the strength of other cereals.
Trade was light.
Provisions advanced sharply on account of
enlarged commission house buying. Tb
chief Incentive to purchase was the advance
of corn and hogn.

ceived a letter trom Washington urg
ing him to co-operate with the farmer
and consumer, so that the two can
e brought closer together for mutual
benefit. The means advocated by the
letter is through the parcel post sys

glad to hear from farmers who have
eggs, butter and other products for
sale, and lie will be glad to put them

Man Writes to Know
What His Nationality Is
Lost One nationality. Clifford
tmerson, Turner, Ore.
A letter, unique in its reouest and
puzzling to its recipient, has been re
ceived by Harry Pearse, county reg
ister of deeds. Mr. Pearse has been
asked to settle the question of a
man's nationality whom he has never
heard of. As the register of deeds
has nothing to do with the birth rec
ords he has turned the letter over
to the city authorities.
The missive, dated at Turner. Ore .
January 2, and addressed to the coun
ty recorder, is as follows:
Will you please inform me as to
my nationality and my date of birth
and what my father s -name was. I
would like to know very much, espe
cially my 'nationality.

of Omaha lias just been awarded the
exclusive wholesale agency of the
Columbia grafonola for the three
states of Nebraska, Iowa and South
For some time this company has
enjoyed jobbing privileges m gifo
nolas jointly with the Grafonola com
pany of Lincoln. Now the Lincoln
concern has gone out ot business and
the exclusive agency was turned over
to the Umaha lirm.
This will mean that the local com
pany fill enlarge its traveling sales
force to a considerable extent. It
will mean also that a vastly larger
stock will be carried in the plant at
Omaha, 1311-13 Farnam street. In
addition to the main floor the entire
second floor is to be tscd, as well as

are at present some 500 dealers in
these three states handling the graf
onola. The Schmoller & Mueller
company expects to get out in the

Is Some Chicken,
And Fred Knows
The oldest chicken in Nebraska
eats, sleeps and lays eggs in the coop
of Fred Anost, 904 South Thirty-fifth
street. F"red says that Miss Methuse
lah (the ancient bird) was born of
reputable White Leghorn family on
May OS, mi, which proves that, in
poultry parlance, she is no chicken.
Fred, however, savs that Miss
Methuselah has outgrown her
youthful follies and now tends strictly
to business. Outside of a little touch
of rheumatism, which hits her be
tween seasons, she's a healthy bird.
Her descendants are legion.
