Young Men's Christian association
last evening. From the moment the
200 spectators took their seats till

A balloon race, in which an elusive
rubber ball kept the water merchants
kicking in all directions, and a game
' -if "bell" tag were two events that
caused hilarious laughter. In the lat
ter one of the swimmers carried a
bell, and swimming under water,
bobbed up every now and then to
. wag the cow bell and start a school
of "seals" in his direction. The play
lasted several minutes before the
worthy leader was caught; '

OFFICERS WELL PLEASED
Applications for Joans in excess ,of
$6,000,000 are now on file with the
federal land bank of Omaha. "The
bank is already overwhelmed with
business," said one of the officials.
Information given out at the bank 9
temporary quarters yesterday was to
the effect that-the fixing of a uniform
interest rate of S per cent per annum
for the entire federal land bank sys
tem is hailed as a longsought-for boon
bv the farmers and has already oper
ated to reduce the interest rate on
loans renewed by the old style agen
cies, although the tederal bank has
not made any loans up to this time.
It is estimated by the board at
Washington that $10,000,000 in inter
est yearly will be saved to the farmers
of the Omaha district through the
operation of the 5 per cent rate, '
The officers of the land bank are
not only geratly encouraged by rea
son of the active interest shown by
farmers, but they also express their
f ratification over the demand for
arm loan bonds which will soon be
issued on the security of the mort
gages to be placed by the bank. Ad
vance subscriptions for these bonds
now total nearly $85,000, although no
public announcement has been made
by the bank concerning them.

The state hotel commission was

The measure consolidates the duties
of that commission with the pure food
The bill, which contains an emerg

of the governor to make it effective
immediately. The governor, who fav
ors the consolidation, will sign it
The staff of the abolished commis

Under another house bill passed by
the senate, House Roll 511, the pure
food department takes over all the
work, and the food commissioner be
comes ex-officio hotel conmissioner.
Since the pure food department has
to inspect under the law all hotels
serving meals, its inspectors can with
little effort exercise the supervision
held up to the present time by the
hotel commission, which regulates
the general service of hotels, the sani
tation and the protection against fire.
To give the pure food department
a chance to do more expeditious and
efficient work, under the new bill, the
corps of inspectors is increased from
sixteen to twenty-two. At the present
time, the short staff of inspectors is
from three to five weeks behind with
its oil inspections. '
Under the same act, an assistant
chemist in that department is pro
vided for, at a salary of $1,600 a year;
a seed analyst at $5 a day, and a chief
inspector to live in Lincoln and re
ceive $125 a month.
Thi salary of the present state
chemist is raised from $1,800 to $2,400
a year, and clerks and bookkeepers
get $1,000 a year, instead of $70 a
month. The secretary to the com
mission gets raised from $90 a month
to $1,600 a year.
Inspectors are paid by the day,
will draw $5 a day and expenses after
the third year of service. The pres
ent maximum is $4.50 a day.
