yesterday after a conference with
Gurdon W. Wattles, federal food ad

period of six months, unless he should
get permission from Wattles to re
Other ordert from Mr. Wattles

sacks of sugar of 100 pounds each

'of sugar. Fox said he did it as a
favor and that the sale of sugar is
not in his regular line, as he buys
and sells junk.

Cut in an Accident
While on his way home in an auto
mobile early last night, Judge W. H.
McHugh, 120 North Thirty-ninth
street, received a severe abrasion over
the right eye and several body bruises
when a runaway team of horses
hitched to a coal wagon collided with
. the attorney's car at Thirty-first and
Harney streets. .

ter, Miss Elizabeth Patton, and Ed
ward Brandt, chauffeur, who were in
the car with Judge McHugh, escaped
without injury. .
; Judge , McHugh was taken to his
"home and attended by'Dr. Somers.
The automobile was damaged badly.
One of the horses was so badly in
jured in the accident that it was shot.
The team was in charge of J. H.

Farmers Welcome Control of
Roads by U. $., Says Grinnell
Farmers welcome the government
, control of railroads, according to J.
B.. Grinnell, secretary of the Nebraska
Farmers' congress, who was in Oma
"Farmers feel their crops will be
hauled more promptly and that the
government will see that their ship
ments of live stock will not be delayed
as in the past," said Mr. Grinnell.
. They long have been asking for gov
ernment ownership of the railroads
' and we feel that government control is
the first step in that direction. When
a farmer raises a crop he should be
assured that proper facilities will be
provided for sending it where it is
