Middle Wet-t Wheat Bolt Fears !
Another Transportation Ticup.
Chicago. May 8. The freight car
upply may be. measuring the price of
bread next summer, it was believed
today by grain trade experts of the
middlewest. They met here with
Julius H. Barnes, United States wheat
director, for consultation over the
grain situation. Their belief was
caused by the difficulties of railroads
which dropped wheat Into a critical
plight almost on the eve of the ex
piration of the wheat guaranty act,
June 1.
The conference here took steps to
establish free and open market for
the handling of wheat and products
after federal control passes. A plan
for the re.-opening of exchanges to
future trading in wheat will be worked
out by a committee of sixteen men
from the grain exchanges of Chicago,

5.000.000 square yards a month, there
was naturally an enormous supply of

fabric has a slightly roi;gh, lustreless
surface which takes the dye most
beautifully, and in its natural state it
is oyster white in tone. It comes in
eleven prime grades and is from 36 to
72 inches wide. It has been dyed up
into a panorama of about thirty plain
colore, including the pastel shades,
and in many designs, including dra
pery and other decorative motifs.
Wonderful Colors and Dcstfnu.
The best talent In the country was
called upon for ideas in color and de
sign. Likewise, forty leading Amer
ican costumers and several Parisian
modistes volunteered to make up gar
ments of the new material to demon
strate Just what could be done with
it. These garments have Just been
shown at the United States Govern
ment Cartridge Silk Fashion show
which was given In the Bush Terminal
Sales building in Xew York uncler the
direction of A. Cavalli and Mrs. F.
W. Hoffman. When you look at the
nictures on this page you -will concede
that they know something about giv
ing a fashion show.
. The Cartridge Silk Style show was
a wonderful success. It has proved
beyond doubt that United States Gov
ernment Cartridss Silk is the silk of
the season. It has demonstrated that
there are more than twro hundred pos
sible uses for the hew fabric. It is
practically indestructible. It was
made to conform to rigid tests for ten
sile strength. The lighter and
medium weights will make wonderful
summer suits for men and boys.
Low that prices for upholstery ma
terial have almost reached the sky,
the heavier grades of government
cartridge silk will prove a boon to up
holserers. Everybody Can Wear It.
Almost eleven million yards of the
silk are to be placed upon the market
as a starter. A scale of wholesale
prices has been fixed varying from
the, lightest to the heaviest weights.
It is not only one of the handsomest
and most durable fabrics in the
world, but in the opinion of experts
it is far cheaper than other fabrics of
similar intrinsic value. It ia all pure
silk for silk when ignited leaves no
ash or flaming residue to foul the
breech of a howitzer or cause a sub
sequent explosion.
The lighter grades will make soft
outing shirts for men. The heavier
grades can be used for book covers,
for painter's canvas, for tents, screens,
and awnings, bags, shoes, scarfs, caps,
bed spreads, drapes, valances, novel
ties of all kinds, while rompers for
children made of cartridge silk will
be w-onderfully popular this. year.

an employer is not entitled to credit
or deduction for the expense of a
minor s board and support. That was
the decision of the supreme court to
day in affirsrrtng the judgment of Ira
S. Slater and Sarah Slater against the
Ismert-Hincke Millfng company, ap
pealed from the Shawnee county dis
trict court.
Almon Slater. 16 year old eon of
the plaintiffs, was killed in an acci
dent while in the employ of the mill
ing company. He earned $17.45t a
week, all of which was turned over to
his parents, who were partially de
pendent upon these earnings. He paid
no board. Testimony showed his ex
pense for support was 95 per week.
The milling company clairaed an off
set for this board in computing com
pensation. It was denied in tne dis
trict court and the lower court's opin
ion was affirmed by the supreme
Amrine Needs a Horseshoe.
" Milt F. Amrine, editor of the Coun
cil Grove Guard, today lost his suit to
compel the school board in his home
town to recognize him as a member.
Amrine signed a resignation and
handed it to the president of the board
when he -entered war service. rs;o
action was taken by the board, but a
successor, chosen at the ensuing eiec
tion, was recognized. Amrine came
home and sought to regain his 5ob.
In deciding the case today Justice
Mason held that, when Amrine signed
the resignation and tendered it to the
president of the board, his rights as a
member were extinguished without
the act of a formal acceptance. The
opinion holds that the action was
tantamount to acceptance of Amrine's
resignation and he is no longer en
titled to the office.
Amrine's fight was directed against
the board of which Kmmett D.
George, private secretary to Governor
Alln and Amrine's business com
petitor, is a member. Richard J.
Hopkins, attorney general, brought
the suit for Amrine in the name of
the state.

The garbage in the residence districts is collected three
times a week. If you are not getting this service, call 1187
and the difficulty will be straightened out immediately to
your entire satisfaction. ,
We are increasing our herd of hogs very rapidly and
need every pound of garbage we can get. This in itself is
evidence enough that we want the-garbage, to say nothing
of our desire to give Topeka the best garbage collection
system it has ever had. . .
We have four of the most modern and sanitary steel
lined and steel-covered garbage wagons in service now,
and two more wagons are in process of construction.
Be sure to call us at 1187 if you are not getting the
service you want. Our office at 922 Kansas avenue is
open from 8 a. m. to 5 p .m. every day except Saturday
and Sunday. We close at noon Saturday. A careful record
is kept of every call, so that none of them is overlooked.
Our collectors call us several times a day to get any calls
that might have come in on their routes.
