“AIN’T NATURE WONDERFUL”
(By Uncle Pete in Omaha Bee.)
O’Neill, Neb., June 1.—Chief Game
Warden George Koster will have to
notify his carp to quit trespassing
upon the stock and feed yards of
Beaver Flats or the chamber of com
merce of the Plats may ask the fish
and game department to reimburse
members for large quantities of corn
the hyphenated fish have been steal
ing from the yards.
Cattle and hog feeding is carried on
on a large scale in the BeaverFlats
yards, that are located along the
Calamas bottoms, which incidentally
are in the famous flowing well and
lake district of the state.
Uwmg to the heavy snows in tne
Wyoming mountains last winter and
the consequent raising of the water
table this spring portions of the stock
yards are flooded with seepage water
which trinkles on down to the river.
The first carp ever seen in the Cala
ma.3 made their appearance this spring
and they are supposed to be part of a
bunch which went astray when the
immense carp migration from Goose
lake to Swan lake through the snow
drifted valleys took place last winter.
The herd which became divided
from the main body last were tracked
a considerable distance through the
snow and then were headed in the
direction of the river.
The carp, which are inordinately
fond of corn early discovered the en
trance through the drainage ditch
from the river to the stock yards and
began swimming into the latter to de
vour the corn left on the low ground
by the cattle and hogs. Some of the
wiser ones soon discovered that the
best corn lay upon the higher portions
of the yard and solved the problem of
getting at it by rooting canals to the
richer bases of supplies.
Stock feeders paid no attention to
the big-scaled fish as long as they con
fined themselves to devouring the corn
left by the fattening animals, but when

SEEN FOR FIFTY YEARS
Thomas Waldron of this city, while
attending the funeral services of his
sister, Mrs. George Duman, in Sioux
City, on Monday of last week, met
his brother, Martin Waldron, of Chi

to O’Neill. His brother did not come
to America for some years later and
as they have been located in widely
separated parts of the country they
did not visit each other.

PROWLERS ARE BUSY
DOWN AT ORCHARD
(Orchard News, May 30.)
There seems to be a prowler or a
number of them working the west part
of town the last few nights. He has
been seen throwing a flash light into
windows, and prowling about houses
at late hours. On one occasion this
week Jas. Withee was awakened by
someone knocking on his door about
three o’clock and when he answered
the alarm no one was there. There
is not a fellow in town who appreciates
a joke any more than Jim, but he does
not see the funny side to these sort
of jokes, and suggests that the trick
not be repeated, or the services of an
ambulance might be in need.
