NORTH PLATTE, NEB., MARCH 18, 1913.
Heavy Loss of Cattle.
Not sinco tho winter of 1880-1881 have
the stockmen of this section sufforedns
heavy losiea of cattle as resulted from
the blizzard of lust Friday. Scattering
reports roceived from Lincoln, Logan,
McPhorson countios and along tho
North river branch indicate that the
loss will run into the thousands. The
loss in this country will not fall short of
800 and may reach 900 or 1000 when all
reports nro made. In Logan and Mc
Fherson counties the loss will bo much
heavier, and the percentage along the
north river branch will probable be
heavier. Somo of the cattlemen lost
fifty percent of their herds.
On rancheB along tho river tho
greater per cent of the deaths was due
to tho cattle drifting into tho wator
and drowning or freezing to death. In
other cases the snow froze and covered
the eyes, nostrils and mouths of the
cattle, causing blindness and sufToca
tion; in other casos they became chilled
and froze to desth. Up along the
branch twenty-nino were counted In one
pile where they had huddled together,
and this too whore tho ground had been
swept as clean of snow as a floor.
Among the losses roported In Lincoln
county are the following: Robt. Hoatson
05 head, Waltot Bcauchamp 34 head,
McCullough Bros. 57. Dick Shinklo 29,
Irvine Johnson 66, Goorge Ferbrachs
100, Vincent 43, Mylander 5, Screiber
70, J. C. Wilson 15 cattle and Borne
hogs, W. C. Cole 65 fat hogs, i
J. A. Crawder, who is in town today
says the loss of cattle in McPherson
county will be enormous judging irom
tho few reports ho had heard before
leaving. Chas. Haney reports a loss of
soventy-five, Daly & Root forty-five
head, Dewoy Weisner ovor seventy
head. No reports had bean received
from the west part of tho county, tho
section in which tho larger herds are
Dave Callendor, of Logan county, re
ports an awful loss in that county. Ho
had only received a few reports, but
among those reporting were the 7-H-L
ranch 850 head, Philpot Bros. 150, Mac
pherin on tho Chapin ranch 150, John
Newburn 65 and George Kramer 100.
The financial loss fo tho cattlemen in
the country tributary to North Platte is
conservatively estimated at $150,000.
