Kansas City and 'Attracts
Notice of Government,
Omaha is pushing steadily to the
fore as a live stock center. Records
of all kinds are broken - weekly to
such" an extent that trader-journals
and government bureaus are regard
ing the Gate City as the one which
soon will surpass Kansas City as a
center of trade and 'distribution. In
live stock receipts it has already sur
passed its southern competitor.
More cattle, hogs and sheep
reached This market during July this
year than during July of any year
since the yards were opened. Ke
ceipts included 135,493 cattle, 287,672
hogs and 198,571 sheep as compared
with 89,400 cattle, 269.536 hogs and
147,621 sheep received during July,
117. It was the first time that more
than 100,000 cattle have arrived here
during July. Not only were hog re
ceipts increased more than 10 per
cent over a year ago, but the average
. weight, of 261 pounds was the heav'
iest for any single month since Au
gust; 1915, atid was Jhe heaviest for
i..t.. iom '
juiy amic jo?.
The fall run of cattle continues to
. come heavily with indications that
- all previous records in that line soon
will be surpassed, s
Patriotic live stock men have
boosted production of live stock, ac
cording to a report of the govern'
ment bureau of markets, which shows
a good per cent of increase in cattle,
sheep and hogs sold during the last
month as compared with the same
month a year ago. Cattle receipts at
the Omaha market were about 47,000
head more than last year, while Kan
sas City figures show a decrease. Ihe
increase in sheep shipments to Omaha
was about 50,000.
The following figures show how the
stockmen are helping to win the war:

Street Railway Will Not
Employ Women on Trains
.Women are not to be employed in
the operation ofcars"on the lines of
the Omaha Street Railway company.
This is the decision arrived at by Gen
eral Manager Smith. Mr. Smith is of
the opinion that women would be just
as efficient as motormen and conduc
tors, but contends that there are so
3iany other places where women en
render valuable services at this time
that it would not be advisable to put
them in charge of the operation of
the street cars
Owing to more men entering the
government service,' it is becoming
.much more difficult to obtain help in
the operation of cars. As a result, it
is likely that within a short time the
age limit of 18 to 45 years will be
eliminated and that such men as can
pass the required physical examina
tion will be accepted as conductors

"To H with the Kaiser" seems
to have expressed the, sentiments of

of a show by that name booked for
