and Pullmans and are occupying the

As in former years, the Walter
Savidge players are the featured at
traction and on the opening night pre
sented the play “It’s A Boy” to a
large house. The offering was received
with applause throughout.
Tuesday evening the company play
ed “Turn To The Right,” a play that
is familiar to many who have seen it
in the movies.
Wednesday night the players pre
sented “She Walked In Her Sleep,”
which was also very well received. To
night the play will be “Three Live
Ghosts,” and tomorrow night the great
play “Welcome Stanger” will be the
offering and has received considerable
favorable comment in the press where
the company has appeared.
Saturday afternoon the players will
present a matinee entitled “Before
Breakfast”—a very delightful three
Saturday evening the players will
present “Clarence,” a comedy by
Booth Tarkington, guaranteed to pro
duce laughs. All of the plays have
had long runs in New York and each
one is guaranteed to please.
;word here about the players
ould not be amiss. It can truthfully
said that Mr. Savidge has eclipsed
’i previous efforts in selecting this
oar’s cast, which is the strongest
carried by any company in the middle
^est. The plays are all produced un
der the direction of A1 C. Wilson, who
is also an able character in each of
fering. The leading man is Raymond
Appleby and the leading lady is
Bethel Barth. The comedy roles are
ably handled by Craig Nelso and the
character and business parts by J.
Gordon Kelly, Robert. Sherwood,
Percy Hall, Adelaide Irving, Nellie
Kempton, May Wilson, Phillip Moore
and Oscar Olson.
The stage is said to be the largest
carried by any company in this terri
tpry and is as completely equipped
with electrical and scenic effects as
any large theatre and each production
is presented with all the required
Vaudeville is presented between tqe
acts by Hall and Kimpton, in singing
and talking novelties. Phil Moore,
the musical saw man; May Wilson in
song and dance numbers.
The Savidge orchestra consists of
ten pieces and is under the direction
of Tom Clark as well as the band and
both have pleased the crowds im
mensely. The morning concerts on
the street up town have attracted
quite a number so far, and the numbers
have pleased all—ranging from popu
lar to classic in each program.
What is said to be the best free
act ever carried by Savidge is the
stunt put on twice a day by the Wright
Duo The act has the distinction of
being absolutely original and consists
of a number of clever balancing
maneuvers with a chair purched on the
top most round of a swinging ladder.
The act has been a feature with one
of the large circuses.
The midway is up to the usual
Savidge standard and is well patron
ized each evening. A number of new
features among the concessions are to
be found this year. The four riding
lovices are doing a fair business and
pleasing the kiddies immensely.
The Savidge company is a good
•’can show and is popular in O'Neill
where tihe company appears every
vear and the public appreciates the
•farts of Mr. Savidge in bringing this
<vpe of high class amusement to
O’Neill each season. The company
ids for business on merit alone and
“drives its own stakes” which puts it
in an entirely different class from a
certain well known formi of entertain
ment which has preyed on certain
communities for several years past.
The company goes from here to
Wisner and the many friends of the
Savidge folks in O’Neill with the
company the best of success and look
forward to their return next year.

MRS. CHARLES HANSEN
KEEPS HOME FOR AGED
IN CALIFORNIA HOME
The following article was taken
from the Pomona paper of a recent
date and tells of the home life and
present surroundings of Mr. and Mrs.
Charles Hansen, formerly of this city,
who have resided in California for
the past two or three years:
“Living a carefree, happy, content
ed life, four women, the youngest of
whom is only 79 and eldest 98, are
making their home with Mrs. Charles
Hanson on East Third street, near
Towne avenue, this city. Mrs. Hansen,
who is a newcomer Ho Pomona from
O’Neill, Nebraska, is maintaining a
minature old woman’s home.
“I can never do anything else,”
said the jovial Mrs. Hansen, when
speaking of the matter yesterday. I
love my work and I will never be
happy doing another thing.”
“The combined ages of the four
women is 335 years and if there is a
house in Southern California that can
boast of but four women with a
higher aggregate age. Mrs. Hansen
has yet to hear of it. The four women
with Mr. and Mrs. Hansen live as one
happy family. They have just been
together for a few months as the
Hansens have only been in Pomona
since March lab.’’

(St. Louis Post-Dispatch.)
O’Neill, Nebr.: Charley Harding
honey king of Beaver Flats, after sev
eral years of scientific experimenta
tion has solved the problem of doub
ling the output of his numerous api
aries without increasing the number
of bees. Mr. Harding’s bee ranch is
located in the valley of the Calamas
River just below the mouth of Skull
Creek, a community much infested
with large and fierce man-eating
Some time ago Mr. Harding con
ceived the idea that if he could
lengthen the mapdibles of his bees
they would be able to extract much
more honey from the blossoms of
their range by dipping deeper into
the recesses of the flower cups.
This would enable them to make
shorter and more frequent trips
from their hives and thus would
prolong the life and usefulness of
With this plan in mind he first
sought to establish at least a neu
trality if not an actual friendship
between the ^mosquitoes and the
bees, which heretofore had prompt
ly engaged in mortal combat on
meeting. He gradually accusomea
the insects to each other by each even
ing. introducing mosquitoes*, into
the hives after the bees had gone to
roost for the night.
The bees, unlike mammals, does
not awaken in a surly mood, but in
steads greets the day in most cheer
ful frame of min,d, and at that time is
a friend to all. After several months
of this proceedure, the bees and the
mosquitoes at last established friend
Mr. Harding then hung raw meat
just outside the openings of the hives
so that the mosquitoes would not have
to seek afar for food. From then on
the bees and the mosquitoes domi
ciled together with the resultant
amalgamation of the two species
and the production of a long-billed
hybred with the nature and the likes
of the bees predominating. Mr.
Harding has sent for several hatch
ings of eggs of the New Jersey gall
nipper and will seek further to im
prove his swarms this fall.

O’Neill, Neb. Doc Wilkinson, one
of the leading scientists of Beaver
Flats, will light his ranch buildings
and run his sorghum mill and feed
grinding machinery on the vanch just
north of The Flats, this /ear from
power furnished from growing plants.
Science long has been aware of
the enormous power possessed by the
growing vegetation and that a ger
minating seed has energy enough to
crack and shatter the strongest rocks
and the doctor quietly has been at
work for several years on the prob
lem of harnessing this energy. Af
ter experimentation with many plants
he at last has found the Hubbard
squash, because of its hard shell
the best adapted to laboring for man.
He will net attempt to patent the
machine which he has constructed
for utilizing the power of growing
plans but will publish its prin
ciples and plans for its construction
in several leading scientific journals,
that all man-kind may benefit as soon
as several minor imperfections are
The squash motor, as it is termed
consists principally of a broad metal
band, lined with a soft substance to
keep from injuring the squash, which
is fastened firmly around the young
gourd like fruit of the plant and its
ends connected" with two crossed
cables, which each in turn is wound
around a drum on the ends of which
are geared wheels. The growing
and enlarging of the squash causes
the bands to transmit energy to the
irums. These in turn actuate other
wheels and pulleys of sufficient num
ber to transform a portion of tihe vast
energy into the speed necessary to
make it commercially adaptable.
The doctor already has pumps in
3everal of his large cattle pastures
rigged up with squash motors to
furnish water for the cattle and about
-he only maintenance expense is
>il; the usual depreciation on pump
ing machinery and the cost of a
fence necessary to keep the cattle

STORM DOES DAMAGE
HERE SUNDAY NIGHT
(Atkinson Graphic, July 25.)
A severe wind and rain storm that
hit this section of the country last
Sunday night about 11 o'clock did
much damage on farms north of At
kinson. The rain, .90 of an inch as
reported in Atkinson, was driven by
a heavy northwest wind and was ac
companied by a damaging electrical
Reports are that 26 head of cattle
were killed by lightning on the Tur
ner, and Hugh James places north of
town. Four head of sheep were killed
on the Ed Gosman farm when the
wind partly destroyed a cement shed
in which they were sheltered. Some
damage was done by wind on the
Henry Winkler and Robert Fullerton
places. Much damage by water was
done to roads in the north country.
Some hail damage in the Sunday
night storm is reported in the Wm.
Blackburn neighborhood. Just a little
under an inch of rain fell in this
storm in a very short time. There
was very littJe wind locally but in
some places there was enough of a
gale to lay some of the corn and grain.
CROPS DESTROYED BY
HAIL NEAR DUSTIN
(Stuart Advocate, July 24.)
A very destructive hail storm south

crops of corn and small grain were
John Robertson also lost some small
grain, and Alphonse and Clem Olberd
ing were very heavy losers. Part of
Mahlon Shearer’s crops were also
ruined. Many others suffered severe
losses, but those named above have
been particularly mentioned.
Mr. Kaup told us that the hail was
about a foot deep at his place, and
that he waded around in it until his
feet got so cold that he had to get
out of it.
