Cattle All kinds of cattlo were draggy
and lower again this morning. Estimated
receipts were rather liberal for a Thursday,
around 7,000 head being In sight. On'y a
small share of the run had been yarded at
10 o'clock, and most trains were not ex
pected before 11 o'clock or later. Packer
buyers did not start out until the middle
of the morning and' consequently nothing
had been done up to this writing. Prospects
were for a fresh decline of at least 25 Cents
In native beef, and slump of 1EJT26 cents or
more In butcher stock. Natives made up
the big end of the receipts.

Associated Retailers of Omaha
Vote to Take Away Ancient
Courtesy Extended to
Ministers of Gospel.
Preachers will no longer get dis
counts at the retail stores in Omalia
after January 1. The old commercial
courtesy extended to ministers of the
Rospel will be a thing of the past in
Omaha after January 1, 1918. At
least, it will be a thinsr of the past
at the 60 retail stores, members of
the Associated Retailers of. Omaha.
But preachers are not the only ones
who will suffer. Churches, lodges,
hospitals, out-of-town merchants,
dressmakers, politicians, oolicemen.
firemen, theatrical people, and all
others who have enioyed the privilege
of a little discount in making their
purchases at the stores, will after
January 1, pay full amounts for their

The Associated Retailers of Omaha,
at their monthly meeting Thursday,
settled this question. I hey went on

Retailers estimate that- this custom
of granting a discount to a certain
class of people has been costing the
retail merchants of Omaha easily
$10,000 per month, or $120,000 a year.
l hey now propose to stop this leak
age and to give tho benefit of the
saving to their customers.
"The old system." said one retailer
"was not only unbusinesslike, but it
was "unfair to the regular customer
who paid full price for what he
bought. The discount was charged to
expense. 'and was counted in as cart
of the legitimate expense of the busi
ness." Is War Time Measure.
Then the retailer planned that his
business- must pay him a certain per
cent of profit on the balance of the
stock which was sold at regular
prices. To stop this old discount priv
ilege is in line with the recommenda
tions of the national war economy
The association instructed the sec
retary also to write the Commercial
club of Omaha, asking that body to
urge the manufacturers, wholesalers
and jobbers among its membership
to refrain from selling at retail.
