Cattle Receiuts were of no consequent;!
this morning, but for the week they amount
to 28,357 head, being smallor than last
week by over 1.006 head, but larger than
year ago by 6,000 head. Considering the
severe1 weather the receipts of cattle this
week nave really been large and more tha
coi Id reasonably have been expected. The
market during the early part of the week
was In splendid condition, but It eased off
at the close, largely on account of the bad
car situation, packers being hampered by
a lack of cars In forwarding meat products
eastward. At the close of the week beef
steers of the best grades are about steady,
out less desliablo kinds weakened oft yes
terday and the day before, so that they
were z&tanflo lower than last week s close.
Cows and heifers, eased off during the
last two days until they are around 16$

Hogs Prices reacted sharply this monv
nig, recovering a gooa snare of Friday
general decline. Shipper demand was very
uroau, oraer Duyers accounting for two-
thirds or more of the light run. They

but had to pay 2030o higher for the bulk
oc ineir purchases. There were hardly
enough hogs here to make buy for the
jmcaers 10 oegin witn, and tney were un
able to do anything early. After shippers
had bought what they wanted killers cleaned

The average market was not far from
Za algQT than Friday. As a natural re.
suit of the uneven markets the last few
days and the lightness of the run, sales
are spread out over quite a range, and It Is
naru to nnc a bum. Today a good many
sales were made all the way from $11.25
to sii.iii, witn some lla-ht stuff under that.
Mont traders quoted the bulk at $11.40
11.60, and choice heavies brought the day's

Sheep in spite of severely cold weather,
receipts of sheep and lambs the last week
were well up to normal for this time of year.
Markets were for the most part irregular
and drag g-y, but closing lamb prices are as
a general thing around 10l6o higher than
a week ago. On Monday's liberal run val
ues held generally steady. Tuesday's
celpts were very generous and the trade
was a many-sided affair, handy lambs open
ing stronger on bullish advices from Chi
cago, but all kinds closing lower when val
ues in the Windy City broke Instead of ad-
vanclng. Wednesday's trade, white- slow,
was unchanged, tfnd Thursday, with

Omaha, February S. 1917,
The rash grain situation was very quiet
agstn today, and while wheat prices
vanced from lo to 3c. the trade was very
slow on account of the uncertain conditions
prevailing. A lack of export Inquiry also
contributed to the dullness in wheat, ana
while there was a fair local demand for
this cereal, the sellers did not let go until
shortly before the close. The market on
No. 2 hard wheat was around $1.69 H
$1.72; No. 8 hard brought from $1.67 to
$1.67Mj, and the No. 4 bard sold at $1.63

quiry for this article at prices ruling irom
uncnangeu to c lower.

being taught. The Bohemians hold,
that the teaching of foreign languages
did not cause any other regular sub
ject or the English language to be
neglected. The Bohemians of this
country are determined to have their
children educated in the English
language above all, as the language
of this country, but they feel that the
teaching of the language of their an

only tend to make them advanced in
all other subjects.
It was reported at the meeting that

GRAND JURY MAY
END SESSION SOON
Just a Few Days Longer and
Speedy Gentry May Come
THEY , STILL PROBE VICE
Court house rumors question
whether the present grand jury,
which reported last- Tuesday and
started its investigations shortly
afterward, will continue its star cham
ber sessions more than a few day,
longer. At the very start of the in
quisitorial body , sessions it was
hinted that unless something unex
pected turned up a couple1 of weeks
at the outside would see the scatter
ing of the sixteen evidence hunters.
It is believed that the grand jury
has cleaned up most of its work al
ready and legions of that clan said to
keep just within the law; are sup
posed to be preparing to come up out
of their cyclone cellars. i
Hundreds ot witnesses have been
examined since Tuesday afternoon,
when the first fateful subpoenaes were
issued to Omahans requesting them to
appear belore the secretive sixteen
and cough up what they knew, about
this, that and the other thing.
From Soup to Nuts.
It is understood that the grand jury
in the last few days probed into
everything from soup to nuts. Rumors
ot investigations ot tne sale ot cig-
arets and of vice threw life-sized
scares' into not a few who are resting
easier, now that the week is over and
no startling indictment bombs have
burst. The grand jury returned sev
eral true rills, but they were in police
court cases, it is understood.
The body is said to be still working
on the evidence, submitted friday
when several persons were subpoenaed
to appeal as witnesses to tell ot vice
conditions and prostitution, under
stood to have been traced to certain
hotels. The elbsed-door jurymen re
treated to their sanctum of mystery
on the fourth floor of the court house
for lust one hour Saturddy morning.
A lone witness, who didn't look as if
he had anything ot titantic importance
up his sleeve, was usheret'. into the
