Neither can you keep a good country
from coming to tha front Pawes county
hat come to the front mora In the past
three or four years than It did In thirty
year prior to the past three or four
years. Stock men here who were grating
vast acreages, making a dandy tin Ilv
line and hoarding up great wealth, did not
waut to see Pawes county turned Into a
farming section. It necessitated their
owning the lands they grazed and keep
ing that land fenced. We have a herd
law her which protects the farmer
against the stock man. Tet. the stock
man who holds his own land and keeps It
fonoed la Invited ky the farmer. However,
since we have got to cutting up Pawes
county Into farms and small ranches, peo
ple are making more money than ever
before. It soils are bringing forth vast
amounts of money unto the farmers and
even the ranch men themselves sr com
mencing to make money from tilling the
soil. You never again will have the op
portunity of buying land In Pawes county
ut the price that you can but it at today.
It Is higher today than It was one year
-Hico or two years ago or three years ago
or higher than ever before, but It Is
cheaper today than It ever will be again.
Take my advice and write m today for

Cattle Receipts were rather moflerRto
for a Thursday, about 4,700 head, but the
four days' supply, 32,200 head, has been
6,600 heavier than a week ago and nnarly
10,000 heavier than a year ago. Trsde
was very slow in operating, and right from
the start both packers and shipping buyers
were bidding around 10gjil5c lower than
Wednesday. The same wa true as to
cows and heifers. Transportation conges
tion made it difficult to move either live
stock or frush meat, and the result was
all classes of buyers Insisted on sharply
lower prices, where they would bid at all.
The decllnf on killing stock so far this
week has been fuliy 60c. and compared
with the best time a week ago both fat
cattle and butcher stock are selling tOfp
76c lower Supplies of stock cattle and
feeding steers have been comparatively lim
ited all week and prices have not shown
much change, although today there was an
unmistakably lower trend to values all
along the line.

Hogs There wa a fairly liberal run of
hogs here this morning, and the market
took another decided slump. Both packers
and shippers were buying hogs at prices
that for the most part were 26o lower than
the average yesterday. There was I little
Inclination on the part of sellers to hold out
as there was no Indication of trade trength
enlng today. Best price paid was $18.25,
while the bulk moved at $15.(5JI18.15. Trade
was fairly aotlve, and the biggest portion
of the hogs had changed hand a little after
... $16 80
... 15 90
... 16 00
Sheep Although sheep and Iamb receipts
continued light, there was no marked Im
provement In killer trade. Feeder were
again showing some life, demand continuing
to be fair, with Improved weather condi
tions. Light and good medium weight
lambs sold about steady "with yesterday'
opening, fair lightweights bringing $16.80
17.00, with mediums around $16.5017.26.
The bulk of the offerings weighing over
85 pounds found the demand very dull, with
packer hardly bidding on thl class. Pros
pects were for lower price on this tuff.
Feeder brought $16.65, and they looked
fully teady. Sheep were steady, ewe sell
ing at $12.00.

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISION.
Sinking of Tnsranla Direct Cause of Ad
vance In Grain and Provisions.
Chicago, Feb. 7. Advance In the value
of grain resulted directly today from the
sinking of the Tuscania. Corn closed firm,
He net higher, with May $1.26. Oata
gained l'ic to IVi'lSc net. Provisions
showed a rise of 5c to 10c. '
Many traders ap; eared to regard the
loss of life on the Tuscania a a factor
which would tend to prolong the war.
This view attracted notice from the out
set In the corn market and, largely a a
result, there was lncroalng strength In
price throughout the day. News that an
other Cunarder had also been torpedoed
came Just before the close of the sesslcn,
but waa not generally known In time to
be a market influence. The fact that de
spite better weather the receipts of corn
rematned very small acted as a handicap
on the bears, but was more or less offset
by announcements that no unseasonably
low temperature were expected ti.ls week.
Scantiness of supplies did a good deal
to hoist the oats market. Some attention
was also ffiven to the fact that barley was
at the highest level since the civil war.
Likelihood of enlarged shipments to the
east put strength Into provision. Big sup
pile of hogs had only a tranalent bearish

RUSSIA TO FREE
London, Feb. 7. German wireless
dispatches bring the Brest-Litovsk
negotiations up to Feb. 3, when long
discussions on the questions of the
representatives of the Russian west
ern border states and Poland joining
in the negotiations failed to bring
any results. - 1
Leon Trotzky, the bolsheviki for
eign minister, contended the fact of
foreign occupation prevented him
from recognizing representatives of
Poland under existing conditions and
argued that a state without either
boundaries or king could be neither
a state nor a kingdom.
Both Czernin and Dr. von Kuelil
mann protested that they had not
come to engage in an intellectual
wrestling match, and, at the close,
the German secretary explained that
he was obliged by unavoidable duties
to depart for a short time, but said
that during his absence the political
and economic committees could con

COAL. IS WORD
A. B. Currie Says 63 Cars
Would Be Four Hours' Supply
and City Uses 250 Car
"Sixty-three cars of coal sai.l by an
Omaha newspaper to be on the side
track in the Gibson railroad yards
would supply Omaha but four hours.''
was the startling statement made by
A. B. Currie of the Currie Coal com
pany in an address before the Rotary
club at their noonday luncheon at the
Fontetielle hotel Wednesday.
"Normally there 'should be about
2(X) cars and the fact that there i?
but 6J shows that a 'shortage exists
rather than that it is not reaching
the customer. Omaha uses daily 25U
cars of steam and domestic coal, ac
cording to the estimates ot the lead
ing coal dealers and railroad men."
He attributed the shortage of coal
largely to the misinformation given
in newspapers and criticized severely
papers that tended to excite the peo
ple over a probable shortage of coal
before the facts warranted it.
Not All This Coal for Omaha.
"If an inve-tigation had been made
before the article telling of the coal
at Gibson was printed the absurdity
of the statements would ljave been
learned. Any coal dealer or railroad
man would have known that the bulk
of this coal was for the exclusive
use of the Burlington railroad for the
operation of locomotives and the do
mestic coal on the tracks was to sop
ply western Nebraska as well as
lie dwelt at length on the coal sit
uation not only in Omaha and the
United States but in the entire, world.
Members were unanimous in declar
ing it one of the most instructive
talks ever made before the club. '
"Nebraska, notwithstanding Xhe
fact that it has no coal within its
own borders, has the largeit variety
of coal of any state in the union,"
said Mr. Currie. "Every varijety of
coal sold in Chicago, Minneapolis,
Kansas City and Denver is aoid in
Omaha and in addition we have
Wyoming and Montana coals not sold
in these cities." He quoted George
H. dishing, editor of the Black Dia
mond. a coal trade publication, as
'oi.infT Viaf Welira;lfa was more Dar-
ticular of the grade of coal used than
any other state. '

The Frenchmen dropped their bombs

At daylight an enemy squadron of
