Over the County
By Romaine Saunders
R. W. McGinnis was greeting
friends in Amelia last Sunday.
Friendk of the family will be glad,
to learn that Mrs. Harry White is
much improved in health.
^ Those accustomed to satisfy
thirst from God’s great reservoirs
in the southwest have no taste for
Missouri river water and hop juice.
Rev. Mr. Morton, of the Free
Methodist church was called to
Cattsville by the illness of Mrs.
Morton who had gone there on a
The delinquent tax list is getting
bigger and better. The millions of
increased farm income we read
about apparently is not being used
to pay taxes.
The institutions stewing the
foaming amber beverage now
promise some real fire water. Pass

The barn at the old Charley
Thompson ranch, a huge affair that
had stood like the Leaning Tower
for a number of years from the on
slaught of a fierce gale, is being
torn down and rebuilt.
Levi Clemens was over this way
Friday looking over the road and

Berry school house, this being one

Fred Watson went to Sioux City

of cattle while the boys at the
ranch put the season’s accumula

the redhot branding iron and the
None on relief need fear the re
turn of the wolf to the door if a
change of administration is voted.
As I understand it, Mr. Landon
would not abandon the needy to
the gaunt specter of want but will
remedy the abuses and waste now
becoming a national scandal.
Many out this way find they have
some corn to husk and are getting
into the fields to secure what there
is ahead of the crows now working
in packs to consume the little raised.
The quality of the corn is good but
ears are small, many not well filled.
Glen White is the most optimistic
of those talked with. His crop is
yielding 15 bushels to the acre.
In the basement of the Methodist
church at Chambers on Tuesday of
next week, old timers of south Holt
are to be entertained at dinner.
Sixty-five and over is the age re
quirement. It is an annual affair
and has always proved a high light
of social functions for those of
mellow years. Amelia folks have
been asked to help and participate.
Democrats out this way are not
taking kindly to the work of cer
tain party leaders in bringing out a
petition candidate to oppose the
regular party nominee. They sus
picion it is done with the thought
that their petition candidate may
not survive another full term and a
vacancy will be created to fill by
appointment. Hence they are sup
Nothing has appeared lately con
cerning social functions they were
wont to indulge in northern Holt.
I have not been a guest only as Ed
Early with a master hand takes us
thru the festivities in vivid word
picture. There is a community of
neighborly people out that way but
perhaps their social season has not
yet begun. Neighborliness out this
w*ay is not often in groups, it being
manifest in fellowship family with
A beauty spot amid the brown,
dry sod of October is a gorgeous
green front yard at the Ed Jung
man ranch. Primarily occupied in
keeping up a herd of White Faces,
Mr. Jungman finds time for a little
landscape work about his nicely ap
pointed home. Splendid results
have been achieved in having a
fresh green lawn during the autumn
by seeding with bluegrass and
oats and letting the windmill fur
nish the needed moisture. Zenias
yet untouched by frost add to the
picture with their bright shades.
I have just received another
specimen of “planned economy.”
This time it is a story from a New
York Sun Washington correspond
ent telling about the importance of
Mr. Tugwell in President Roose
velt’s councils. It is sent direct
from Washington under the frank
of an eastern senator and appears
to have been printed in the Con
gressional Record. Its political
value is a doubtful quantity but
that does not mitigate the cost to
our government, now in charge of
a group loudly shouting “who cares
The individual irrevocablly and
irredeemedly padlocked to anything
and everything his party leaders
promulgate becomes “raving, cav

mentioning the federal money
spending spree. He comes at you
with that somewhat “flat, stale and
unprofitable” clatter about the
spike-tailed, cloven-hoofed and evil

industrial paralysis from the Artie
Circle to Little America and belted
the equator with the frosts of com
mercial ruin. There seems to be
nothing hurts a New Dealer quite
so much as the facts about the
spendthrifts at Washington.
Probably he has 'entertained the
suspicion that the work on the farm
of such as myself was merely neg
ligible but Bob Gallagher had the
tangible evidence to the contrary
Friday last when he was out from
O’Neill on a visit to the southwest.
I was high atop a load of hay and
did not get to interview him as to
the purpose of the visit, but if it
was to show a ranch property to
prospective buyers the country nev
er looked worse and never offered
a better opportunity to investors.
There has been no rain of any con
sequence since last June. Rains will
come again and the country will
bloom in its accustomed beauty.
Now is the time to buy.
Having had some opportunity
thru the years to observe the of
ficial conduct of the judiciary in
this and other judicial districts, I
can see no reason for a change in
judges at this time. Judge Dickson
has made just about as good a
record on the bench as you will find
in this or adjoining states. His ex

L. G. Gillespie of O’Neill called
on a few in Swan and Wyoming
one day last week. Mr. Gillespie
says he has just started an active
campanign in this county to secure
a seat in the one-house legislature.
His interest in road development
appeals in strong terms to this
community. In the new setup to
which Nebraska must look for leg
islation the counties of Holt, Boyd,
Keya Paha and Rock comprise a
district with one member of the
legislature to represent it for a
period of two years. The district
as a whole is agriculture and live
stock, much of the ranch territory
being badly in need of adequate
highways. Mr. Gillespie says if he
is successful in securing a seat in
the legislature he will do all he can
for a farm-to-market road pro
gram for his district.
