C!ash Corn of Last Year's Crop
Reaches Record Mark
Hard Wheat High.
New high grain prices were marked
up by the Omaha Grain exchange
when cash corn of last year's crop
sold at $1.03 and No. 2 hard wheat
sold at $1.96 cents per bushel. - i
Zarly last fall a carload of prime
yellow corn of the 1915 crop sold at
$1.03. But Saturday not only one, but
a dozen carbads, sold at $1.03.
The previous top cash price on No.
2 hard wheat was $1.95 per bushel.
That was last fall and then but one
carload reached this mark. Saturday
six cars sold at $1.96 per bushel.
And for th consumer, say the grain
men, the worst is yet to come. The
opinion of many of the dealert that
$2 wheat and much higher priced
corn will be In evidence before the end
of another week.
' Option Is HighV
While tilt cash price attained by
corn was startling, the option, was
staggering. Corn for May delivery
sold as high as $1.07H; July delivery,
$1.07K, and next September, $1.05?,
a bushel. ,
For a Saturuay the Omaha re
ceipts were just fair. There were
thirty-seven cars of wheat; forty-four
of corn, and twenty-five of oats on the
Wheat sold all the way from $1.9054
up to $1.96, an advance ot 3 to 6'A
cents over the prices of Friday. v
There were no sales of corn under
$1 per bushel, the ruling prices being
$'-.011.03. The advance was 3', to
4 cents a bushel
Oats topped the market, but the ad
vance was less than on wheat and
corn, it being l'A to 2 cents a bushel.
The range in prices was narrow, the
sales being made at 5858c a

Police find Only Fifteen Cents
in Home of Man Who
Turned Burglar.
Because his family of four small
children, all under 6 years of age,
were starving, is believed to "have
prompted John A. Andi rson, 600
South Twenty-eighth street, to rob
the boarding house managed by Mrs.
M. Houston, 2021 California street,
Friday evening. When officers called
at Anderson's home they found his
family destitute and only 15 cents in
the place.
Although when caught he had a col
lection of valuables which he had ran
sacked from rooms of the boarding
housei police believe that his inten
tion was to get food for his family.
"Many nights we hive had to send
our children to sleep without any sup
per," Mrs. Anderson told detectives.
"I urged Johr to quit stealing and
he promised me faithfully. 1 wanted
him to get a job and go to work.
In police court Anderson pleaded
guilty to the robbery and was bound
over to the district court on $750
bonds. He also admitted .o the theft
of the blue serge Suit which he was
wearing at the time of his arrest.

Kidnaps Two Little ,
Girls from Kansas
And is Caught Here
Stricken with a mania to run awaj
with neighbor children. Miss Ruth
Mohrman of Morrill, Kan., traveled
to Omaha with Edith Davis and Ruby
Winkler, each 6 years of age and
children uf neighbors of the Mohr
man family.
The actions of Miss Mohrman on
a train and at the Carlton hotet
aroused the interest of George Town
ley, who otified the police. The
Kansas woman and her two small
traveling companions were taken
from the Carlton hotel at i a. m. by
the police.
Miss Mohrman's mind appears to
have been affected. She would give
the police no intelligent reason for
running away with the 6-year-old
girls beyond to state that she just
wanted to take them for a train ride
to Omaha. She said she had heard
of Omaha for years and wanted to
see this city.
Relatives of the children and Miss
Mohrman are on the way from Kansas
