Miss Braoksn Quite HI Miss Ella Bracken, one of tho pioneer women of Come Up Where You Belong! In the human body, "man-power" comes from food. But the food must be right.

The United States supremo court at Wash ington has handed down Us doclslon, an nulling the ruling of the Interstate Com merce Commission, ordering the B-cent fare between tho two cities. In Its opinion the supremo court says street car lines are not subject to regula tion of the Interstate Commerce Commis sion, and as a result the Omaha-Council Bluffs case goes off the docket. John Leo Webster, attorney for tho street railway company, expresses tho opinion that the decision of the supremo court will settle for all time the quostlon of a reduction of the fare from 10 to S cents. The case Just decided by the United States court has been pending four years. This is tho third decision, two of which have been won by the company. The street railway company lost before the Interstate Commerce Commission and took tho case to thef court of appeals, where thero was a reversal of the Judg ment. Then the case went to the United States court about one and one-half years ago and was argued. "He's Bughouse" Leads Man to Have Sanity Looked Into Unable to withstand sarcastic comment on prose written by him, and hearing the remarks. "He's bughouse." so often that he now believes it to be true, James Green, a sign painter, boarding at 3W4 North Seventeenth street walked Into police headquarters early yesterday morn ing and asked to have his sanity inves tlgated.

Gross man, Sixteenth and California streets, Saturday night, and after ordering a glass of beer remarked he could lick any man on the city of Omaha. None of the patrons denied this asser tion, so John, raising his voice, announced that he was capable of chastising any male Inhabitant of tho state of Nebraska. Falling to secure a response from his attentive audience Mr. Smith took one more chance and In loud and strldant voice declared he could whip anything on two legs In the United States. "I reckon you all took In too much territory on that last remark, neighbor." vouchsafed a short, stocky negro, scarcely over five feet six, and rising from his seat In the rear of the saloon", this Individual proceeded to mop up the floor with the belligerent gentleman, who was later arrested and this morning discharged by Judge Altstadt.

CORN 18 MOST PROMISING Fnrmrra Are Already neerfnnlnp; to Worry Abont a Scarcity of Har vest Itnniln Klrat Cnttlnir of Alfalfa la Heavy Tho Burlington's weekly crop report made to General Manager lloldrogo Is Just about as optlmlstlo as any that have heretofore been Issued. Ileports had been current that Nebraska grain was suffer ing from lack of moisture, but this re port tliat covers conditions up to last Saturday night and takes account of the entire grain-raising area of Nebraska, drives away all anxiety and shows that with the oxceptlon of a small area In the extreme southwest comer of tho state, tho outlook for a bumper crop Is Just as good as It was three weeks ago. All through the state, with the excep tion of a limited territory In tho vicinity of McCook, thore was an abundance of rain last week, tho precipitation ranging from one-half to two Inches. Compilation of figures made by agents and their reports, verified by the superin tendents, show the condition of winter wheat to be as follows, compared with the average of the last ten years: Utst Previous. Week. Week. Omnhn division. Der cent 103 101 Lincoln division, per cent. 105 Wymore division, per cent.... 108 McCook division, per cent.... 90 103 107 81 Kulliiintm Are I,ottt. Superintendent Allen, who Is In the city, has this to say of the report on wheat: "On the throe eastern divisions Omaha, IJncoln, and Wyniorc-I think the esti mates could bo rnlsed 10 to 15 por cent and still be conservative. On the McCook division it Is estimated that winter wheat ha been damaged by dry weather from 23 to GO per cent between Oxford and Wray on the main line and In tho neigh borhood of 2 per cent from Rcpulblcan, Neb., to Oberlln, Kan., and from 10 to 30 per cent on the St. Francis branch. Recently, however, there have Decn some very good rains over the dry terri tory, with the exception of along the St. Francis branch and tho estimates oi rtnmmrn may bo a little high. This terri tory Is on tho McCook division and ap- parcnUy brings down the prospective yield In that section." Superintendent Flynn of the McCook division of the Burlington Is at head quarters, and In discussing the crop con dition In the southwest part of the state, said: "Wheat Is somewhat spotted out. In our sections. There are somo fields that nave been badly Injured by dry weather, while but a short distance away, mere r fields where the yield will bo very heavy. Thin hrlnes down the average, but every where the quality Is excellent" CnndttlimM Improved. The weekly report of the Northwestern baa not been compiled, but the data ts oil In ihn hands of General Manager Wniiora. Tho showing that Is made In Northwestern territory In Nebraska Is much ahead of one week ago. In every locality there has been plenty of moisture m wrnthfr has stimulated tho growth of small grain. According to the reports coming to Gen cral Manager Walters there Is no place alone the Nebraska lines of the Nortn western where small grain has been dam- actd in any particular. . . Traveling Freight Agent Clifton of the lTnlnn -Pacific Is In from a trip as far out as the west line of the state and says that everywhere he has been small grain Is In perfect condition and promises the heaviest crop In years. Drmnnil for Ilnrvest Hands. All through the southern counties of Nebraska, winter wheat Is beginning to turn and the prediction is that with warm weather cutting will begin the last of this week and that next week, har vest will bo in full blast. It Is generally agreed that there is going to be a short age of harvest hands and that high wages will be tho rule. Already fanners are be ginning to talk $3 per day and board. Railroad reports and reports of rail road men who have been to tho country Investigating the crop situation all agree that while corn Is making good headway, hot and dry weather Is badly needed. All through the southern part of the state farmers have plowed their corn the. first and have commenced going through It the second time. There the corn Is from twelve to fifteen Inches high and Is a very dark green In coolr, showing a healthy condition. From the central part of the state north corn has been about all cultivated once and Is unusually free from weeds. It Is conceded that at this time, as com pared with the average at this season of the year, the condition Is 100 per cent. The first cutting of alfalfa has been se cured and It Is the general opinion that It Is tho heaviest and best in years. Two Engage in Ohm Duel and One Hurt Tony Blanco, 2211 Pacific street, and Louis Succannl, 1921 South Twenty-first street, quarreled early Sunday evening and after dire threats being exchanged the two parted. An hour later Blanco, accompanied by Joe Plgillcca, strolling near Twenty-second and Pierce streets, espied Sucannl on the opposite side of tho thoroughfare. Blanco drew a revolver and fired two shots at his enemy, one lodging In Sucannl's tight arm and the other making a flesh wound on the same shoulder. Plgillcca also fired two shoU, neither of which did any damage. Thu two artillery men are being held pending an Investigation of the affair.

CADETS AT MISSOURI YALLEY Omaha High School Regiment En joying Annual Encampment, MARCH TO THE UNION DEPOT Army Cooks 1'repnrc thr First Mrnl for (he lliinirrr l,nilH Cnrap U to no Called "Cntnp JIMInuh." Heralded by tho blare of trumpets and stepping to tho music of a Sousa march, tho Omaha High school cadet regiment left thu campus at 7:30 yesterday on the first leg of their Journey to Missouri Valley, where tho annual encampment Is to bo field. Bright and early all the cadets. In com pany with fond mothers, fathers and sis ters, appeared on tho parado ground waiting eagerly for tho order to fall In. When tho order was finally given, It was with alacrlcy and enthusiasm that every cadet compiled. The lines were formed on Dodge street and the parade down Far nam street to tho Union depot began. The regiment arrived at the depot hustled the provisions in the commissary car, and then dissolved lit order that a last parting farewell might bo had with parents and less fortunate friends. At S:30 the order for entralnmcnt was Issued unci Uie cadets clambered aboard. Tho special train of eleven ears Immediately pulled out amid vociferous cheering on the part of ovcry person In or around the depot. Tho train arrived In Missouri Valley at 9 o'clock and was met by a delegation representing tho town officials, who so licitously offered their assistance and co operation to make the visit both a profit able and enjoyable one Lines were formed at the station and the boy sol- dlers paraded through tho town to the site of the camp, where they awaited the arrival of the baggage and the ever de sirable commissary. Tents were pltchod along the company streets which had been previously piped for wnter, while the cook tent with the piofesslonal army cooks In charge, was erected at the far sldo of tho lot In time to prepare the first allotment, of rations. Captain Strltxlnger, after the erection of alt the tents, announced that the name of the camp would bo "Camp McIIugh." The only drill scheduled for Monday woo a company drill Just before the noon hour. At 5 o'clock In the afternoon Lieu tenant Colonel James Durkee held regimental Inspection. During this parado he announced the rules that will govern the actions of the cadets during the week. Tho camp will bo open until 8:30 In the evening, until which time It Is the privi lege of the cadets to visit In town and become acquainted with their hosts, the townspeople. They may also purchase any of the accessories or Incidental things that they may have forgotten In their hurried departure. By 10:30 all prl vates must be In bed with their lights out In the tents. The officers are at liberty to stay up until 11:30, at which time they, too, must extinguish their lights and go to bed. This will end the first day of .real army lite In the open for the cadets. CONSERVATIVE WILL NOT REDUCE DIVIDEND RATE The officers of tho Conservative Sav ings and Loan association report that the volume of business this year haa been so large, and the Increase In loans so grati fying, that tho dividend of July 1 will be at the rate at 6 per cent por annum. On account of the reduction of the Interest rate to all borrowers last October from 7 1-5 per cent to 6 3-6 per cent per annum, the officers had given It out that thero would likely be u corresponding reduc tion In tho divldond rate, possibly bring ing same to a BV4 Per cent per annum basis. They now find that after the pay ment of all expenses and mldlng to ths reserve fund, as required by law, the profits will be such as to requlro the maintaining of tho dividend at the old rate of 6 per cent por annum. 11 Keep Cool No matter what the temperature no ; matter what the strenuous exactions i of the day you can find cooling, rest ful refreshment in a glass of and no matter what the thirst Coca Cola will quench it and satisfy you absolutely pure and wholesome.
