WHY MILK REMAINS SWEET
I have just installed a new Reid Milk Cooler and Areator. The ii:
: milk passes over the coils and cold water passes through them, iii
The milk is cooled from 98 degrees to 55 degrees as fast as it is iii
milked. The milk looses all the animal heat before being bottled
and will remain sweet much longer. Due to the rapid increase in
business since installing the cooler I believe it is a great help to iii
'll my customers.
I have also built a large cooler holding 1200 pounds of ice for iii
; storing our butter and other dairy products. This insures you
: receiving them in the best of shape.
All the leading dealers in town handle our butter! When buy- iii
ing, ask them for it.

THE WONDER OF THE WORLD.
(By Holt County’s Poet Laureate.)
Where is there such another spot?
I challenge any man!
To find in all this whole wide world
An equal if he can—
Why! Any other place but this
Opportunity flees before
But here she sits right close at hand
With an ever open door.
You view in skies at night-time
The beauties of a star
And tho you use a good night-glass
It still remains afar
But here among our wonders
Less than three short miles away
We have a Star that’s visible
To us in broadest day.
You read and imagine characters
In books you call the rage
But we have real live people
That live within our Page
Who are so very generous
To tourists who stop there
That they have long had up a sign
“Free Water and Free Air.’’
We have an Orchard off south-east
Where one may get his bread
Or candies for the kiddies dear
Or clothing, too, ’tis said.
And well I know when snow is deep
Or one gets caught in storm
There’s places in the midst of it
That’s almost summer warm.
Tho we have as yet no flying ma
We can take our motor cars
And in an hour be at Venus
Or dead and darkened Mars
And homeward bound amid oaken
If we should lack on gas
We fill up at the Middle-Branch
Thus simple matters pass.
A twelve mile run of northward hills
Reveals another sight,
A Red-Bird nestles in the dell
Which stays there day and night
And sings a song all thru each day
Yet hearers n’er get nervous
For its a song most beautiful
‘Tis service, service, service.
Then westward we’ve a region
With enchantment in the air
You have the queerest feeling
When ever you near there
For tho no word is spoken
You seem to hear and feel
As tho ’twere being called aloud
The cryptic word O’Neill.
Now all these bear upon the life
In manners (so to speak)
That we have whole communities
Known as Joy and Meek,
Which add unto our wonders so
That now the facts unfurled
We ask you where’s another spot
Its equal in the world.

O’NEILL AT STUART
The going is even at present in the
new series between the O’Neill and
Stuart baseball aggregations. O’Neill
Thursday of last week' defeated Stu
art by a seoi'e of 9 to 3, on the local
diamond, and Sunda'y at. Stuart the
west-enders trimmed the home boys
to the tune of 5 to 1. The Sunday
game was witnessed by the largest
crowd ever attending such a dispute
at Stuart and it seemed as though
about all O’Neill was there. Ed Al
len did the serving for O’Neill and
Miller for Stuart. Allen didn’t get
to going good until after the second
inning and it was in these that Stu
art secured its damaging lead. Mil
ler’s pitching was a considerable im
provement over last Thursday, per
haps because he had just become a
benedict, and it may be that the
O’Neill sluggers refrained from
pounding him rather than to cloud
the honeymoon. The game after the
first two innings was a most exciting
one and remarkably free from errors.

FORMER HOLT COUNTY
CONDITIONS IN IRELAND
A personal letter just received by
T. V. Golden from M. J. Garrett, a
former resident of Holt county, now
visiting in England and Ireland, tells
so interestingly of present conditions
in Ireland, as Mr. Garrett sees them,
that it is herewith reproduced for the
perusal of the readers of The Fron
tier. Mr. Garrett homesteaded in
Iowa township more than thirty
years ago and later taught school at
various points in the county. He
resides in El Paso, Texas, and at
present is visiting his son, a Rhodes
scholar at Oxford university, England.
Mr. Garrett is not an Irishman and
so far as Mr. Golden knows is not
aware of Mr. Golden’s views on the
Irish Free State and the Irish ques
tion. He is writing as one friend to

Dublin, July 9, 1925.

under the personal supervision of the

affection had sprung up between
chickens and owner, until Tomlinson
