Omaha Future Market.
The report that President Wilson would
address the senate on foreign relations to
day had a depressing effect on the wheat
market today and - after a fairly strong
opening the May and July articles suffered
a sharp break, the May dropping to $1.81
and the July to $1.46.
The bears did not remain In control,
however, and. shortly before the close a
buying rally was started, which forced
May wheat to $1.84 and July to $1.48, and
the market closed about c under thts
high point of the day,
Unfavorable Argentine crop reports were
given aa I he reason for the late advance
In corn, although May corn followed the
Marly break In wheat, but later regained
Its losses when wheat started to advance.
The oats market was dull and the May
option carried the bulk ot the business In
this market and closed e higher.

Report af Capture of Oennan Haider Tends
to Strengthen Wheat. .
Chicago, Jan. 32 President Wtlaon'a ad
dress on foreign relations brought about a
material upturn In the price ot wheat to
day, but the gains were not all held. The
market closed unsettled, yo to 2n net
higher, with May at $1.86 to $187, and
July at $1.53 to $1.58. Corn finished,
0c to c up and oat at an advaace
or a shade to 0c. In provisions the re
sult was a decline of 607c to 17c.
At first the purpose of the president was
the subject of much misunderstanding In
the wheat trade and there was a rush to
sell on account of hasty Inferences that
he might d I close a new crlsla with Germany
regarding submarines or about the status of
armed merchantmen. As aoon, however, aa
the speech hsit gone far enough to Indi
cate that he was dealing exclusively with
the topic of a league to enforce peace, sell
ers of wheat turned quirk Ijr to the buying
side. A rise of nearly 4a from the bottom
figures ef the dxy ensued. Then came news
that the president had declared for a peace
without victory, and there was a notlcnablc
renewal of bearish sentiment tn some quar
ter, certain leaders taking the position that
the expression of such views might lead to
friction between tha United States and the
Misgivings concerning possible unwelcome

results from the president's speech had lite
tie time to make much headway before the
wheal fnarket cloning time. Bearish inter
pretations of Washington advices aside, the
day developments favored the bulls, es
jfeclally the reports that a German raider
had been sunk and that in Nebraska the
winter crop was Imperiled by extreme cold
weather and Ice covered fields. Com dupli
cated the action of wheat. Notwlthatanding
reports of rain In Argentina, seaboard de
mand was In evidence and had considerable
effect. Country -offerings were limited.
Oats trade Included liberal purchases for
export. Pried changes, however, depended
on the course of other cereals. 1
Inrcaaed arrlvala of hogs acted as a
weight on provision. Declines that resulted
were checked by support from packers.

ALFALFA BUTTER COMPANY
The Alfalfa Butter Company is encaged exclusively in the manufac
ture of CREAMERY and PROCESS butter. The butter industry is
the third, largest industry in Omaha and Omaha leads the world in
the manufacture of butter. Creamery Stock is in the front rank of
industrial securities because the product manufactured is one that
is in daily use three times a day, 365 days of the year. The food value
of butter makes it one of the three chief necessities of life.
There is alwafS a market for all the butter manufactured regard
less of its quality, because the demand is far greater than the sup
ply. The history of all the well known creameries and the increased
value of their stock is conclusive evidence of their safety and ex
ceptional earning power.
The Preferred stock of the Alfalfa Company is even more attractive
from the investor's standpoint than the majority of creamery stocks,
from the fact that a GUARANTEED-dividend of 7V4 per cent is as
sured, but the dividend is not limited to that rate, as this stock is
cumulative and participating (sharing with the common stock in the .
increased dividends that this company is certain to pay) and in addi- 1
tion this stock is nonassessable and nontaxable (tax being paid by
