AHEAD AS GREAT
Gate City Runs Neck-and-Neck
With Kansas City as Second
Largest Center in
! , Omaha has hit its gait as a pri
3 wary grain market, and if gains con-
tinue as, they have in the last few
I years, grain men predict that it will

I able for the first six months of this
year it is asserted that Omaha has
h' passed all except Chicago and that
I it is running neck and neck with Kan-
j1 us City, Minneapolis, St Louis, pe-
' oria, Duluth, Winnepeg and the other
,1; market towns have been distanced.

i market has-been in existence only
IS years, its record is regarded as
s marvelous, not only by members of
; the Omaha grain exchange, but by
5 grain men the country over, i
, It is said that Hs importance as
grain market is largely due to the
fact that the city Is close to the cen
' ter of the richest grain producing
i ' area in the world. In addition to this,
. it is asserted that Omaha gra'n deal
i ers and commission men have es
t tabli$bed , reputation for fairness
s and honesty, thathas gone far and
i' near and brought millions of dollars
worth .of business to their respective
"' noose.-. ..' .-:,-:-'.'
Added to all thia is the fact that
i Omaha is the railroad center of the
s central portion of the United States,
J trunk lines radiating out in every di-
dection, connecting with the seaboard.
" the mines, the forests and the manu
: facturing districts.
- Besides, Nebraska, Iowa. Kansas
i and South Dakota, from which states
.1 Omaha draws the bulk of its grain;
; are kit rich in agricultural wealth and
are regarded as constituting the bread
i basket f the world.
1 Th half year's business of the
' Omaha grain exchange closed with
j June 29 and according to the books
of Secretary Manchester, the total
' grain receipts for the six months a$
gregated 47,937.700 bushels. This is
; far In excess of any previous corres
; ponding period and indicates that if
the crops of this year, now growing in
Omaha trade territory are as boun-
tiful as they give promise of being,
this year with the Omaha gram mar-
ket will be a record breaker.

i Fi'srures never lie and they tell the
following story with reference to the
: Omaha grain receipts for the months

; Had the wheat crop of Omaha Uiit
. territory been up to the average last
year, during the six months that have
" fassed it is safe to say that at least
10,000,000 bushels would have been
added to the total receipts of the
i Omaha market. However, regardless
- ef the shortage in the wheat crop, a
portion of the loss was made up by
; the receipt of other grain that came
h much larger quantities than ever
; before during a corresponding period.

six months of 1917 and which are as

Angelo Piccolo, former Omaha boy,
died of wounds suffered in action on
the western front on June 11, accord
ing to a message received Friday
night by bis father, A. Piccolo, 1728
South Ninth street, Omaha.
' ; Young Piccolo lived with his father
in Omaha until four years ago, when
he went to Middletown, Conn., to
make his home. He entered the
United States army last fall as a
member of a Connecticut draft con
tingent and arrived in France in
March, this year.
When in Omaha young Piccolo was
employed at the Union Pacific He
was 30 years old and had served five

of Omaha, one sister in Connecticut

Hungary Admits It Lost
12,000 in Italian Battle
fiasel, Switzerland, June 29. Ad
mission that about 12,000 men in pris
oners were lost by the Austro-Hun-garian
forces in their recent retreat
on the Piave front was made by Dr.
Alexander Wekerle, the Hungarian
premier, in a speech to the Chamber
of Deputies, according to a dispatch
today. Dr. Wekerle said this cov
ered the entire loss in prisoners, the
troops to this number thus taken
having left to cover a retirement
over the Piave.
Dr. Wekerle, apparently treating on
the question of the Austro-Hungarian
losses in the recent fighting on the
Italian front said he would not at
tempt to disguise the fact that the
casualties were heavy, totaling about
100,000, but he declared that a large
percentage was due to sickness. He
denied, however, that there had been
a single case of death due to lack of

waste any of these is unpatriotic, j
First consider the O-Cedar Polish Mop
as a saver of work. It saves the work of
getting down on the hands and knees to
dust, clean and polish the floor. It saves
time by dusting, cleaning and polishing all at
one and the same time.
By saving time and work it saves money.
In addition the O-Cedar Polish Mop saves
money because it will not wear out like
brooms do and in many homes it has practic
ally replaced brooms.

The Bee s Fund for

A man came into The Bee office
yesterday and handed the cashier
$10 for the milk and ice fund.
"What name? asked the cashier.

be used to buy pure milk or cooling
ice to protect the babies of the poor

and suffering that so easily attack
them during the hot weather.
