Agricultural writers—maybe at
a loss what to say—frequently ex
patiate on the value of Russian
thistles and tumble weeds as cattle
feed. The Herefords out this way
know their hay, and turn up white
noses at the occasional thistle lodg
ed in the stacks.
The Methodist congregation at
Amelia enjoyed a visit a week ago

Rev. Dr. McKaskel, who gave them
an afternon sermon. He was ac
companied by Mrs. McKaskel and

To many Frontier readers around
O'Neill a bit of information con
cerning former citizens is always
interesting. Not long since the
compiler of this column received a
letter from Guy Green. He will be
remembered with interest by many.
For a number of years he followed
the pursuits of the husbandman
near Walla Walla, Wash., but has
rented his farm to a tenant and is
now operating an apartment house
at College Place, Wash.
Twelve hundred head of cattle
is something of a herd to trail at
night. That’s the number that
went by one night recently; that
is, most of them got past us. There
was an addition of 29 head de
horned steers on the premises next
morning and fences torn down in
several places. The herd was brot
in June from the dust-blown ranges
of Colorado to summer range in
Brown county, where, the cowboys
informed us, Charley Petersen
bought them. They were taken to
West ranch and are now feeding on
the spacious meadows or lolling
around abundant hay stacks. It is
said there are 1,000 stacks of hay
on the Petersen ranch this season.
It appeared like unneighborly, if
not ruthless conduct to destroy
fences, but we take it the cowboys
were having trouble of their own,
as the ranch was not reached until
12 o’clock that night.
If “a bird in hand is worth two
in the bush” what is one in a pock
et worth? Hugh James has the
remarkable experience to relate
that he shot a pheasant, picked it
up as a dead bird and stowed it
away in the commodious pocket
with which hunting coats are sup
plied. An then the bird made its
get-away. Having a pheasant fly
out of his pocket was a new ex
perience even to a veteran with a
shotgun like Hugh and it so “rat
tled” him that he made a clean
miss when taking another shot at
the escaped bird.
As we were meandering toward
the western limits of our rural do
main a day last week a party of
O’Neill nimrods, arrayed all in
hunter’s attire, effective weapons,
dog and all, overhauled us. Their
7 miles further on, and ultimate
object to bag all the pheasants the
law allows. Mike Horiskey was at
the steering wheel and was kept on
his good behavior by Rev. Father
Leahy, who sat by his side. The
back seat was kept in sort of jud
icial order by the presence of Clerk
of the District Court, Ira Moss.
Ira knows the southwest like a
book and probably led the boys into
the thick of the best shooting. As
sistant Postmaster Martin gave an
air of federal approval to the ex

The sales tax is the bugoboo of
the special legislative session which
began this week, and. Governor
Cochran has primed his guns to
shoot the unwelcome visitor down
on the threshold.
It has been definitely determined
that the governor’s special session
call can not legally bar the intro
duction of a sales tax bill as a
means of financing the contem
plated social security program.
A drive of sales tax advocates to
provide money for old age pen
sions or to replace property tax
was defeated by strong majorities
in the regular session last spring.
The governor has been strong on
clubbing down any “new forms of
Sixteen different items of emer
gency and corrective legislation are
included in the governor's call.
These include the following:
Meeting requirements of the na
tional social security program un
der conditions laid down by the
federal government, and to re-en
act the 1-cent gasoline tax for
state relief and old age pensions.
Providing for report of the in
vestigation and audit of all the
business transactions and activities
of the department of banking; a
substitution for the Cone delinqu
ent tax bill, remitting interest pen
alties; proper appropriation of
funds for the new aeronautical
commission,real estate commission,
old age pension commissioner’s of
fice, and expenses of the special
Reimbursement of the Nebraska
National Guard for the three wars
of 1936; patching up the 1936 laws
requiring owners of motor vehicles
to pay personal taxes on their cars
before they can obtain a license;
empowering cities and counties to
issue bonds to pay their share of
WPA costs without first holding an
