Million Cases of Eggs Held
In Storage, Fed Report Shows
More than 1,000,000 cases of eggs

kets. The 438 storages which reported
showed total stocks of 1,662,543 cases

ings. The report also shows that Oma

report, is the prominence of Omaha
as a market for feeder stock and be
cause of the large amount of lambs

THREE DEATHS FROM
DIPHTHERIA IN WEEK
Health Commissioner Connell
Makes Statement as to the
Use of Antitoxin for
I MRS. E. B. BANISTER.
Three deaths from diphtheria within
a week have prompted Health Com
missioner Connell to make this an
nouncement to physicians:
"Not less than 10,000 units of anti
toxin should be used for the initial
dose in any case and in most cases
20,000 units should be used. There is
no more danger in 20,000 units than
in 500 units. There will be no mis
take in applying a larpe dose, but
there may be in a small dose. If there
is not a decided improvement in pulse
action within eight hours, the dose
should be repeated even if the ini
tial dose was 20,000 units."
The ages of the three diphtheria
victims reported during the last week
were 9, 13 and 23 years.
