    Buys Iowa Corn Over “Long Distance”
to Feed Texas Cattle
| “An order for six cars
of com for a good customer
in Texas and none on
hand," exclaimed an Iowa
grain dealer. But this was
not going to lose a nice
sale for him. Quick action
was necessary. Stepping
to the telephone, he placed
several long distance calls
for Iowa elevators.
The quantity needed was
purchased in less than an
hour. Shipping instructions
were also given by tele
phone and the corn was
soon on its way to Texas;
Whether you buy or sell
corn, hogs, groceries, mat
ches, coal, or any other
product, you can use “long
distance” profitably.
We are eager to help you develop a plan of getting
the greatest value from “long distance.” Just call
our Manager and he will be pleased to assist you.

Robert Samardick and a bunch of
assisants drove into O’Neill last Fri
day about noon and picked up five
residents whom he charged with frac
turing the prohibition law. Consider
able speculation- was rife as to who
and how many would be caught in
the dtag-net at this time. Those who
were picked up gave bonds to appear
in Norfolk before the commissioner
when called, which will perhaps be
some time next week.
The following account of the raid
was published in the Omaha Bee of
March 31st and tells the story:
"Follow the Swallow was a popu
lar tune in Lynch, Nebraska, till,last
Saturday night, when Federal Prohi
bition Commander Bob Samardick and
his men swooped down there and
gathered in Frank Michaelson and
Archie Pearsall.
They stowed them with malefactors
from many other towns in the jail at
O’Neill till the jail nearly overflowed.
“We have reason to believe that one
Swallow made dozens drunk,” said
Bob, Monday, on his return from the
hard trip. He and his agents and
deputy state sheriffs, in two cars,
went out of Omaha last Thursday
night, covered 760 miles, arrested 26
men and women charged with liquor
law violations in 11 towns and return
ed to Omaha, all in about 60 hours.
They slept but little.
Patrick J. Connolly, serving on a
jury in district court, was one of five
men arrested at O'Neill. The others
were William Pinkerman, Frank Sum
mers, Leo F. Bazelman and Arthur
At Star they gathered in Floyd
Crawford and left a warrant for the
arrest of his good wife, Mary, who
was absent from the domicille. Roy
and William Olds were other Star
citizens who received notice from Un
cle Sam.
Near Naper, on a farm, two broth
ers, Gilbert and Leo Biele, were arous
ed from the hay at 11:30. Their aged
father protested he could not spare
them from farm work. It was their
first offense, anyway, so Samardick
took them to Butte, roused the judge
and attorney from their beds. They
lighted up the courthouse, the two men
were arraigned, pleaded guilty and
were fined $200 each.
Mr. and Mrs. Harry Smith, of
Knoxville, Mrs. Rose Barett and
George Janecek, of Atkinson, Lee Mc
Coy, Eugene Dollarhide and Gray
Hoffman, of Stuart; Thomas Strong,
of Emmet; C. P. Gallon, of Bartlett,
and Mark McClehn, of Ewing, were in
the liquor register.
At Elgin also were found Frank
Stoltz and Frank Webb, the latter 79
years old. Because of his age, Sa
mardick did not arrest him but or
dered him to present himself before
the United States commissiner in Nor
folk to answer the charge.
We wish to thank the many kind
friends and neighbors for their sym
pathy and kindness during the ill
ness and death of our husband and
brother. Also those who sent the
beautiful floral offerings.

Doc Wilkinson, president of the
Beaver Flats Game Protective Asso
ciation, is confined to his residence in
the Flats, suffering from a severe
scalp would received when a crow
dropped a rock on his head while mem
bers of the association were engaged
in a crow hunt along Bloody Creek,
just above its junction with the Cala
mas River, last Sunday. Several
other members of the club are carry
ing bruises and contusions similarly
sustained on the same hunt when the
crows, driven to desperation, retalia
ted on the hunters who are waging a
war of extermination against them in
an effort to protect the game birds of
the Calamas Valley.
The game protective association has
been engaged in warring on the
numerous crows inhabiting the section
for several years, but only succeeded
recently in locating the rookery,
or homing roost, of the pests, which
is situated on Bloody Creek. Scouts
reported the rookery to be the home
of thousands of the birds, which flew
into it every evening and which left
it at dawn every morning to prey upon
the country for miles around. The
several flyways through the hills
bordering the valley were located and
last Sunday the entire membership of
the club lay in ambush along the fly
ways and began slaughtering the.
birds ns they came in during the early
hours of the eventm*.
The heavy bombardment crestac
panic among the birds for a time; hmt
soon several of the older ones axw.
leaders of the flock, after a confaii
over on the rock-strewn banks of
Calamas, flew back toward the roofconr
carrying pebbles the size of a walraag
and larger. Flying high over tX*
hunters and well out of range of fie*
shotguns, they dropped the pefabte
among the ranks of the hunters, job*
as Gen. Mitchell bombs a battlesfcijt
and scoring numerous hits.
Dropped from a height of severaf
thousand feet, the missils gained a
high velocity before reaching tfew» •
targets and would have inflicted 1
wounds had it not been for the hea*vjr
caps and clothing of the hunters:
Other members of the enormous ffcnjfc
of crows were quick to emulate tfc*
examples of their leaders and tfar*.
fleeing hunters were pursued far
several miles from the rookery by re- -
liefs of the feathered warriors.
Since the battle of last Sunday, ©.
has not been safe for a gun bearer
to enter the territory, the sight erf m
hunter afoot and with a gun being ifa*
signal for a rallying caw and a hurra*
onslaughter by the bombing battalion.
Members of the game protective mm
ciation are armouring the tops of tifasr
automobiles and again will invader thar
vicinity of the rookery within the num.

This is a special invitation to every one interested in a gas
oline engine to come to our store and see this wonderful new
We have handled farm engines for years—we have seen dozens oC
different makes, but never before have we seen a small engine that come^r
so near fitting our ideas of a real farm engine.
The John Deere, we know, will appeal to you. It is an engine yon
can let the women folks or the boys run with complete confidence—it
is an absolutely safe engine to operate.
All of the Working Parts Are Enclosed—
no projecting shafts, no keys, no
open gears on which clothing cun
be caught.
No worry about oiling — no
grease cups to turn down, no sight
feed oiler to adjust. After filling
the oil reservoir, this John Deere
engine automatically oils itself for
days and days without attention.
The operating parts get a thor
ough bath of oil the moment the
engine starts, and the lubrication
stops with the engine—absolutely
no wasting of oil.
The John Deere is mighty easy
for any one in the family to start
—no triggers to adjust. Close the
choker, crank it, and away it goes
to relieve every one in the family
of tedious, time-taking jobs. Wash
ing, churning, pumping, cream
separating are only a few of the
jobs you can turn over to it with,
profit and satisfaction.
All this work is done at mighty
low cost. Its fuel and oil consump
tion is extremely low—a few cent*
a day keeps it running.
Its durability, its long life will
appeal to yqu. This faithful littOtr
engine will run for years with
scarcely an adjustment or repair
No dirt or grit can get to the en
closed and thoroughly-lubricated
working parts. It runs steady at
any speed which you can instantly
change to meet your needs
Whether you need an engine or not, come
in and see this masterpiece in engine-build
ing. You can’t help but be enthusiastic
about it. We are ready to demonstrate*
