GANNON BRIDGE BREAKS
DOWN WHILE FARMER IS
CROSSING WITH A LOAD
Frank Baldwin, and two boys, aged
ten and twelve years, living about
eighteen miles northeast of O’Neill,
came near losing their lives, as well
as their four-horse team, last Thurs
day, when the Gannon bridge, two
miles north of Inman, broke down in
the center while they were crossing
with a flat rack upon which they were
moving an 8x12 chicken house. As
ibe load reached the center of the
bridge the bridge buckled, letting
the occupants of the wagon and the
horses into the water. Mr. Baldwin
says that some of the horses were
thrown rfrom the bridge and that he
really does not know how he managed
to get his children and the horses to
safety. Some of the horses were badly
scratched and bruised by the accident.
'i he county board of supervisors set
tled with Mr. Baldwin for a nominal
sum for the damages to himself and
nis property. The Elkhorn river has
Leen very high during the past week
and we understand that the bridge was
entirely washed away last Tuesday.
A new 100-foot bridge has already
been ordered to take the place of the
one which has just gone out.

“AIN’T NATURE WONDERFUL”
(By Uncle Pete in Omaha Bee.)
O’Neill, Neb., June IB.—After sev
eral seasons of secret experimentation
Doc Wilkinson announces that he at
last has succeeded in perfecting a hen
which he will soon place upon the
market. The new hen, the doctor
believes, will place thousands of dol
lars into the pockets of the farmers
and small country produce dealers an
nually during the summer months,
dollars of which they are now de
prived because of either the natural
depravity of the common hen or her
lack of knowledge of the state and
federal pure food laws. The new fowl,
he says, is not a freak-bred bird, but
is the offspring of several generations
of highly educated barn-yard chickens.
The doctor first was attracted to
the necessity for improvement of the
common hen by the perversity of the
large flocks which he maintained on
his ranch just outside the city limits
of Beaver Flats. The flock was one
of noted layers and as a result each
time the doctor came to town he was
enabled to bring at least a case of
These eggs the local merchants
were eager and glad to accept and
later to ship as number Is to the
larger marts, where they were accept
ed without question until the first of
June rolled around each year. The
first of June is the date after which
for several months both state and
federal food laws require eggs to be
candled, and after which all eggs must
be shipped subject to candleation.
Just as soon as June 1 arrived the
doctor noticed that the hens began to
lay large numbers of bad eggs. No
matter how carefully they were
candled at home and by the local
dealer bad ones continued to show up
every time they changed hands and
Close observation of the flock con
vinced him that the blame lay with
the birds and that many of them,
either through natural meanness or
a careless spirit brought on by warm
weather, were laying bad eggs. Con
tinued observation enabled him to
spot the guilty fowls and then a course
of discipline began.
Whenever a hen, caught in the trap
nests, was discovered to have produced
a bad egg she was sent to bed without
jier supper and her pleasures and
recreations were restricted until she
had produced a good one.
It didn’t take long for the hens to
figure out the relation between cause
