DON’T MISS PULL BROTHERS.
The juggling of the flaming torph of
Charles Pull, of the Pull Brothers
entertainers, is really a scientific art.
Try it once, with a piece of gas pipe,
and be sure you don’t have any fire
about when you do. Then you’ll know
it is an accomplishment. See the real
act at the Knights of Columbus theatre
in O’Neill on December 10th.

ALBERT STEUCK OF BATTLE
CREEK CHAMPION HUSKER
(Battle Creek Enterprise.)
Battle Creek claims a champion
cornhusker in the person of Albert
Steuck, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred
Steuck. The young man has made
some records which have caused the
swift ones of surrounding counties to
sit up and take notice. The other day
he husked 167 bushels in eight hours
and thirty minutes. Through condi
tions were fairly favorable, he was
not particularly trying for a record
and was somewhat surprised himself
to learn that he had become a top
notcher. He now says he will not be
satisfied until he cribs 200 bushels in
Davis, of Page, Nebraska,
claims a record of 175 bushels and
cribbed in nine hours and thirty-six
minutes, an average of about 18 and
a half bushels an hour. This does not
equal the performance of Steuck whose
average was a trifle over 19 and a half
bushels an hour. In the vernacular of
the craft, that’s some shuckin’ fellows.
