Some of the unregenerate of At
kinson are attempting to divert the
attention of O’Neill sportsmen from
crow shooting by the issuance of a
challenge for a blue rock shoot be
tween the* two towns. When the
O’Neill challenge for a team crow shoot
was issued last week it applied only
to shooters in the eastern half of Holt
county. However Captain E. O’Don
nell has extended the limits of the ter.
ritcry challenged to include Atkinson,
if any of the sports up there would
like to shoot crows. But until the
crow war, which lasts until April 30,
is over it is needless for Atkinson to
attempt to entice O’Neill into any
other kind of a contest. “After April
30,” says Captain O’Donnell, “if At
kinson still is in a sporty mood O’Neill
is not only willing, but anxious to meet
them in a blue rock shoot, mah jong,
pinnochle, solo, golf or any other con
test of skill at which the Atkinson
men consider themselves most profi
cient, and for any sized purse desired
by Atkinson, with the sky the limit.
Until April 30, however, the slogan is
'Get That Crow’.”

E. H. Whelan, formerly of O'Neill,
and now resident of San Diego, Calif
ornia, had a narrow escape Sunday,
March 9th, from catching a big bass.
He already had the big fish landed and
in the boat, but it jumped out of a
I water can and got away. Following
1 is a communication from Mr. Whelan
to M. H. Horiskey, relating the de
tails of the sad event:
438-9 McNeece Bldg, San Diego, Calif.
Dear Mike: I was bass fishing last
Sunday at Sweetwater Lake, ten miles
from here. Caught only four, as they
weren’t striking bassareno very well.
Fellows that used minnows (alive)
did better. Funny thing happened.
The biggest one (no fooling) jumped
out of a water can three-fourths full
of water and over the side of the boat
which was eight inches higher than the
top of the can and escaped, the very
first try! Wisest bass I ever saw. Of
course he doesn’t compare with Frank
Barret's “Scar-Faced Billy," who, you
can tell Peters (or Shack) made the
first page of the San IMego Sun.
(newspaper.) Am interested in Sdar
Faced Billy, because 1 knew his father,
viz., Jim Davis’ “Billy the Trout." “I
haint seen Billy today."
Wish you and Griffin were out here.
Sweetwater Lakp is as large as Lake
Andes. Mrs. W. and all the family
send best regards.
