iHoyt Says He Has First
Three-Cent Stamped Envelope
R. C. Hoyt,( clerk of the federal
court, believes he has the first stamped
3-cent envelope to pass through the
United States mails under the war
tax act raising postage to 2 cents. Mr.
lloyt is a stamp collector. Among his
collection he had a 3-cent unused
stamped enveloped of the issue used
prior to 1882, when 2-cent postage
was introduced. He sent this envel
ope to a friend in Wyoming with in
structions to ntail it to him. It-came
through the mails duly postmarked
and Mr. lloyt has added it to his
collection with the statement that it
is the first 3-cent stamped envelope
to pass through the mails under the
3-cent postage rate of 1917. 1
Letters sent to points in the same
city cost but 2 cents.

that their cars were takiMi from in
front of their homes. The car be
longing to the latter was later recov

where it had been left standing by
the thief. An automobile belonging
to John Gibson, Wahoo, Neb., was
taken from in front of the Clarkson
hospital, and another belonging to K.
C. Gethchcr, 806 South Fifteenth

Old Corn Bfmgs High
Pr(ce on Omaha Market
Omaha prices on old corn were 4
to 5 cents up, selling at $2.12 and $2.15
a bushel. New corn was not in good
demand, owing to the arrivals being
too full of moisture. Prices were
$1.18 and $1.45 a bushel, but whether
up or down could not be determined,
as there was no way of making com
parisons. Receipts were 23 carloads.
Oats were a cent tip, selling at 60
cents and 61 cents a bushel. The re
ceipts were 56 carloads. Wheat re
ceipts were 23 carloads.
