TO LET OMAHANS
SHIP OUT CORN
Grain Exchange ' Appoints
Delegation to Hurry to
Washington to Make Per
Director General Hines, in a tele
gram to Otis M. Smith, president of
the Omaha Grain exchange, posi
tively refu.ses to rescind his order
prohibiting the shipment of corn out
of Gtoiaha from February 8 to 18,
according to a statement made by
Mr. Smith yesterday.
An urgent request was wired Mr.
Hines by the Exchange following
the. refusal of Hale Holde'n, regional
director of the railroad administra
tion, to take action in behalf of the
grain men. His reply was received
yesterday in a night letter from
Going to Washington
The next step taken by Omaha
grain men will be the delegation of
a special committee of Exchange
members to go to Washington Mon
day to confer with Mr. lT?nvs and
seek a recall of the order.
Mr. Hines' telegram stated that no
corn shall be shipped out of Omaha
autil February 18. but that empty
cars must be returned to country
districts for more grain. The pur
pose of the order is to move sur
plus stocks of corn from country
markets to the large terminal ele
vators Mr. Smith asserts that these ele
vators already are filled to capacity,
and the inability to ship out is caus
ing such a congestion that there is
no room for country stocks. Several
terminal grain elevators of the city
closed down Wednesday as a tem
Yesterdav being a holiday, there
was no grain market. The local mar
ket was unaffected Wednesday by
ti e inability to ship out grain, ac
cording to Mr. Smith. He stated that
the price was somewhat higher on
the exchange, on the heels of a sud
den drop in price Monday. The mar
ket continues to be somewhat con
gested, because many country ship
pers have refused to move their
Browne Wires Appeal.
Lincoln, Feb. 12. Commissioner
Thome A. Browne of the Nebraska
Railway commission sent a telegram
to Director General Walter 1).
Hiues of the federal railroad admin
istration asking him to permit grain
movements from primary terminals.
Unless such movements were per
mitted, the telegram. said, the bene
ficial effects of Mr. Hines' recent
orders to railroads in the middle
west to give preference to grain
shipments from elevators would be
''completely nullified." s
Omaha is congested with grain
and dealers will not buy because
they are unable to till contracts un
der present conditions, Mr. Browne
said, adding that "this will undoubt
edly break the market, in which
event country shippers will refuse to
make use of cars furnished."

To Wash Away Those
W rinkles and Crowsfeet
If your face is disfigured with wrinkles,
no matter what the cause, you can
quickly dispel every line, even the most
obstinate, by using a simple, home-made
wsh lotion. Merely dissolve an ounce
of powdered saxolite in a half Hint witch
hazel ingredients found in any drug
store. Bathe the face in this, and -presto
!you scarcely believe your own
eyes when you look into your mirror and
behold the marvelous transformation I
The remarkable astringent action of
the saxolite so tightens the skin, wrinkles
are literally pressed out. Best of all,
thus result is not purely temporary, for
the lotion also has a healthful tonic
action, which tends to strengthen and'
tone up the weakened tissue, and added
benefit may be expected with con
tinued use. Use this once a day for
awhile ; it cannot injure the most deli
cate skin. The treatment 'itself leaves
no trace no one guesses the secret of
your increasing youthful appearance.

" Property is the fruit of

Raoul Peret Elected.
Paris. Feb. 12. Raoul Peret was
today elected president of the Cham

votes cast. M. Peret succeeds Paul
Deschanel, who was recently 'elected
president of the republic.
When the talk turns frcjm politics to railroads, and the
traveler with the cocksure air breaks iri with, "There's
an awful lot of 'water' in the railroads," here are'some
hard-pan facts to give him :
American railroads have cost $80,900 a mile road
bed, structures, stations, yards, terminals, freight and
passenger trains everything from the great city term
inals to the last spike.
A good concrete -and -asphalt highway costs $36,000
a mile just a bare road, not counting the cost of cul
verts, bridges, etc.
Our railroads couldn't be duplicated today for
$150,000 a mile.
They are capitalized for only $71,000 a mile much
less than their actual value. Seventy-one thousand
dollars today will buy one locomotive. .
English railways are capitalized at $274,000 a mile; the
French at $15,000; German, $132,000; even in Canada
(still in pioneer development) they are capitalized at
$67,000 a mile. The average for all foreign countries
Low capitalization and high operating efficiency have
enabled American railroads to pay the highest wages
while charging the lowest rates. ' .
