RECEPTION LASTS ALL DAY Little Work Was Dome Everyone Having- Been Kept Bnsy En tertaining the Many Guests. Regardless of tha fact that the mer cury followed the tube to a point con siderably below zero and the brisk north west wind blew the snow into drifts along the streets, several thousand people vis ited the new Union Pacific headquarters building between the hours of 10 and 4 yesterday. The affair was In the nature of a reception, but was entirely Informal. Practically complete In every detail, the $1,260,000 office building, twelve stories high, at : Fifteenth and Dodge streets, , was thrown open to tho public at 10 o'clock and from that hour until clos ing time In the afternoon the crowds surged through the corridors, the publlo and the private rooms. There was no place that the "keep out" sign was vis ible and the people of Omaha were just as much at homo in the private office of President Mohler as In the space outside of the rati of the public ticket office. All ' day iong the visitors ' troiiped through the offices and departments. From Cellar to Garret. They secured information concerning the sending of wireless telephone and telegraph messages; they witnessed, the feeding of the furnaces and then went up Into the offices of the treasurer, where thousands of dollars were being paid to the employes, the occasion being the regular monthly pay day for the 1,000 or more persons who work in the building. Everybody connected with the Union Faciflo Railroad company, from Presi dent Mohler down to the humblest em ploye, came In for congratulations. There was a profusion of flowers everywhere. huge bouquets of roses and other cut flowers reposing on the desks, having been sent in by friends. Although there was a semblauve of routine work during the morning hours, the work that was performed did not amount to much, as visitors did not hes itate to bolt into an office, no matter if an official was dictating a private or personal communication to a higher of ficial, or a friend. Everybody Leads a Hand No one in particular did the honors. The heads of the various departments were all in thler rooms to receive. As the crowds came these heads snowed tne visitors through their respective depart ments and passed them on, the clerks helping to answer the many questions and explain the Intricacies of scientific railroading. The elevator men, for the first time, were clad In their spile and span dark blue new suits and caps of the same color, ornamented with gold buttons and gold braid. In the corridors there was an army of Janitors and assistants, each man clad in. a spotless uniform ol wnite. While these men were not at work dur ing the day they gave practical Illustra tions of how to chase dirt. A Vlner In the Stomach Is dyspepsia, complicated with liver and kidney troubles.

K. IlotchklrK. the Hastings N'eb.) manager for the Hall-Raker Grain company of KaiiFas City. "It l.i only, a few months ago When hard winter wheat was selling at 6 to ( cents under nprlng, and several years ago It was bringing a dlncount of 8 to i cents under. Every winter wheat raiser will no doubt be glad to hear that their wheat Is now worth more money than any other other wheat raised in the world and should be crowned king of wheat. 11 would seem that the quality of spring wheat Is deteriorating and winter wheat Is needed for blending to give It strength. Should the above conditions continue to prevail, It is a potability that the milling center of the world would shift from the northwest to the southwest. "The consumer will probably ask the question why It Is that he has to pay 15 to 20 cents more for spring wheat flour over winter wheat flour when winter wheat is bringing t cents more per bushel than eprlng wheat In the northwestern markets."
