Is Everywhere in Land.
Fremont, Neb., Jan. 18. (Special
Telegram.) Governor . Neville in an
aildress at the banquet of the Ne
braska Volunteer Firemen s associa
tion here last evening, said that one

(From Stuff Corrwpondant.)
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. .18. (Special.)
High prices of feed have placedithe
live stock feeders of the state in a
difficult position,' Prof. H. J. Gramlich
told the corn improvers' association
at its meeting at . the state farm.
"Farmers who overbid packers to get
some cattle a few months ago would
have to stand a loss if they sold right
now," he declared.
"A few years ago people would
have scoffed at the farmer who sold
his corn and then hauled out other
feed to his farm, while today the op
posite condition prevails. ;
. - - Much Fat Unpatriotic. "
"The secret of high corn prices
seems to lie in the tremendous devel
preventing unnaturalized . citizens
from exercising the rignts or tne
Better environment must be provid
ed for the education of the coming
generations, so that only true, loyal
citizens .will result. Discretion must
be used, he said,, but immediate ac
tion - is necessary.. American ideals
mast, be taught.
. i Tribute to Firemen.
' The volunteer firemen were paid
a high tribute for their loyalty and
devotion to duty. More than ever, he
said, their services, are needed to pro
tect the property of the citizens of
the state and the tooastuns neeaea to
a certain point, lhe extra tat is
simply wasted since it is sold to the
consumer and,, of course, is not eaten.
The butcher and packer do not trim
away the fat since it spojls the ap
pearance t of the. carcass." - i
Hundreds Have Come.
Organized agriculture has opened
in earnest. . Hundreds of farmers are
in attendance, and it is' believed that
by the end of the week attendance
records will be broken. The state
horticultural society is holding it
sessions down town, while the corn
will use' less meat and eat more of
our grains, especially corn. As the
population becomes more dense and
food more scarce, larger and larger
areas of our tillable lands will be
given over to the raising of grain.
Dairying will be increased. Our nec
essary beef will be raised to a very
large extent on the ranges, in the
rough country which will not pro
duce grain. Vast areas of land of
this sort are still undeveloped."
