George Cuttler went to Atkinson
Tuesday, having some cattle in the
sale ring. ,
For assuming agonizing atti
tudes, the foot-ball player just
about takes the cake.
j Frank Williamson and family of
\ the Bower ranch were guests at the
ample dinner table at the Riley
ranch last Sunday.
Jack Frost visited the southwest
Sunday night, wilting the tender
vines but left no preceptible marks
on tree foliage.
The oil and gas station over on
highway 11 has again changed
operators. Mr. Shonka, lately of
the Carter ranch, is now handling
the nozzles.
Ernest Hall, who has a ranch in
the Beaver valley west of Peters
burg, was up this way recently and
bought a bunch of black calves of
Ernest Young.
I could not feature Senator
Burke of Nebraska joining a rep
rehensible organization which “at
heart he did not believe in” for the
purpose of sliding into office.
Mrs. Farrier and daughter, Miss
Alice, of Chambers, visited Sunday
afternoon with Mr. and Mrs. Baker
and Mrs. Riley. Mr. and Mrs.
Howard Berry W'ere also guests
there at the same time.

Sunday from the Amelia neighbor

About 34 per cent of the world’s
i peoples are classed as Christian.
[ Probably not more than 1 per cent
of these qualify as such under
Biblical requii’ements. Have those
commissioned to “go into all the

failure of it after nearly 2,000
years’ effort?
When the old timers were con
triving ways to get industries
started in Holt county—launching
a packing house, chicory factory,
flour mills and many other under

are moving there because we don’t

little difference in their loyalty
what the president does but the
New Deal has brought to light
many men with the mental vigor
and moral stamina not to be led

The chief industry of the south

Tom Doolittle’s outfit moved a
herd from summer range Saturday
to the home place. A snappy 400
pound White Face calf got lone
some over night and Sunday morn
ing headed west for his “home on
the range.” A telephone message
to this neighborhood asked that he
be headed off. When spotted he
was traveling like a Hambeltonian
trotter. Bernie Kennedy climbed
aboard a handsome blue-roan Stal
lion and with whirling riatta cut
loose in full chase. By fine per
formance of rodeo stuff in real life
the calf was brought into perman
ent captivity.
