AT THE BATTLE OF CHADRON Officers in the local army building are frequently called into executive session to discuss plans and proticms that confront the various departments. Following one of .these sessions the conversation turned to the sensafen of being under shell fire. After !seh ing while several fellow officers described their, experience in the Philippines and the southern re publics, Major Maher asked: "Have any of you ever visited Chadron, Neb?" Upon receiving a negative reply the maior told of his experience in the Nebraska city and how he acquired the name "Gingerale John." "When I was a stripling, I decided that I had graced the paternal table lonjf enough and in spite of the ob jections of my parents decided . fol low the advice of Horace' Greeley and go west," said Major Maher "I chose Chadron as the place to make my future, largely because my sav ings would pay carfare no further It was a rough town in those days, with saloons nearly every other door. It was the custom of the cowboys to spend the majority .of their time in the saloons and naturally I followed them. I did not drink, but went be cause I had no other place to spend my time and every one I knew was there.

"I was first under shell fire while watching Dahlman play cards in a Chadron saloon with other cowboys. A big, rough cowboy called Jack, en tered the saloon on this day and, fir ing hi revolver at the ceiling, in sisted that everyone drink at his ex pense. "I refused, bashfully stating that I never drank.- This angered Jack and he ar'-'.'i emptied his gun.' This time at nty feet, while I endeavored to crawl under a table. I was relieved when my new found friend quietly re marked: "'That will be enough, big fellow. This boy is a friend of mine and he don't drink.'" "I didn't drink, but I did learn the sensation of being under shell fire. On leaving the saloon Dahlman com mended me for not drinking ard ad vised me never to drink and to leave cards alone. It was a really temper ance talk and I considered it as com ing from a man who knew and I took Jiis words to heart. I have refrained from drinking ever since and have never played a game of cards. "I am firmly convinced that my first time under shell fire was re sponsible for moulding my future life and my gratefulness to Jim Dahlman, the man who interceded in my behalf, is still as strong as it was at the time of what I call the 'Battle of Chadron'."

Toa standardize the price of corn meal, jpsofar as it is possible on a fluctuating corn market, a committee of the Nebraska Millers' association has agreed with Gurdon W. Wattles, federal food administrator, as to what will constitute a fair maximum charge for' manufacturing, profit and other details entering into the manufacture. Under the agreement a fixed charge is made. A differential is established in the price of white and yellow corn meal, on the basis of the difference in the pric of No. 3 white and No. 3 yellow corn. . , The recommendatbns accepted were: All millers should use two and one-fourth bushels of corn in making 100 pounds of corn meal; all other recommendations are also ' made on the basis of 100 pounds. Fair Manufacturing Cost. A fair manufacturing cost shall be 40 cents and the millers may charge 2Vi cents profit; an additional 15 cents' may be added where the meal is sold in less than carload lots to cover cost of shipping and handling (this charge eliminates jobbers' profits.) Where meal is sold f. o. b. con signee's station, an additional charge of 20 cents per 100 pounds may be added- and in addition the cost of a 100-pound sack must be included, at present 27 cents. . .. From this total must be deducted the amount received by the . miller for the. corn bran or residue remain ing, on the basis of 24 pounds from every two and one-quarter bushels. All prices are to be figured on the basis of No. 3 white corn and on the price paid by the miller for. corn at his station. Basle For Figuring. .Under this agreement the price of white1 corn meal to the retailer in Omaha on the present Omaha price of $1.80 for No. 3 white corn, wuld be $4.86J4 per hundred, as follows: 514 bu. whit corn, 11.80.... l.0S Manufacturlhc coat 40 Profit 12 '4 Jobbing axpenae. Iws than earloada. . .15 Freight (If prepaid) .10 Present cost of 100-lb. aack a ta.iou Leas 24 Iba. corn bran at $1.35 per 100 .33 Coat 100-lb. sack cornmeal to retailer. 34. !H The Trice of yellow corn meal under this agreement should be $4.524 per hundred, as the difference in the price of white and yellow corn is IS cents per bushel. Deducting two and one fourth times IS cents, or 34 cents, a price of 44.52J4 is arrived at. J. W. opirk, chairman ot the mill ers' committee and president of the Nebraska Millers association, says that this agreement should be met by every miller in Nebraska, about 175. Under this agreement we will be able, to get by, although we will not be making the great amount of money some people think we are. However, in war times, we are content to make a bare living and' with this in mind I believe we will be able to secure the co-operation of every miller." Wattles Sends Out Notice. ' Food Administrator Wattles is sending out advices of the agreement to every county food administrator, directing them that under this agree ment a basis can be established in nx ing the fair retail price ta the con sumer. "This gives as near a standard' price as is possible on' a fluctuating corn market,", says Wattles. "It gives a fixed basis in establishing fair prices and will standardize prices of corn meal through tbe state. Naturally there will be some variations because of the fluctuating price of corn in dif ferent parts of the tate. "Naturally the price of fneal out in the state will be considerably less than the Omaha price because of the dif ference in the price paid for corn. The same applies to yellow meal, also, be cause of the difference in price." LAME SIGNED BY BROOKLYN OF NATIONAL LOOP New York, March 22.
