How "Mayor Jim" Saved Young Man's Feet
From Being: Perforated by Cowboy's Bullets.
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. 'Jim' Dahlman, now mayor of
Omaha, apparently took a 'liking, to
me, probably because of my ignorance

of the west and I was constancy in

"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

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

is still as strong as it was at the
time of what I call the 'Battle of

Food Administrator Wattles
and Nebraska Millers Get
Together on What the
Charges Should Be.
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'
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
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
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."
