On The Sidelines
By Observer
Last Sunday afternoon the
O’Neill Shamrocks walked away
with their twelfth consecutive win
by sending Stuart back home at
the short end of a 13-3 triumph.
The team looked better last Sun
. day than it has so far this season
as it had for the first time a team
composed of many of the players
of last year. Sunday’s standout
was Dick Tomlinson, O’Neill Mana
ger, who had four blows for five
times at the plate, one of them
being a home run. Wind made
the judging of flys a hard task and
caused numerous errors on both
Wednesday night the St. Mary s
Alumni Association gave nine
seniors their last banquet for the
sports they have competed in the
last year. Seniors graduating and
leaving a big hole in the line-ups
for next year are: Ted Sirek,
George Hammond, Fritz Hickey,
John Shoemaker, Duke Kersen
brock, Bob Miles, Bob Parkins, Bill
Ryan and Jerry Kliensmith.
It has been rumored that Ted
Manser, the High School’s best bet
as thair track team next year, is
moving from O’Neill this summer
and will not be able to attend
O’Neill High during his Senior
year. Ted has been a letter earner
(in Football, Basketball and Track
and his absence will be a great
loss in the already hard hit O’Neill I
line-up next year. Another great
loss for the High due to graduation
will be that of Zane Cole, Football
captain of the past year.
Mr. and Mrs. Charles McKenna
entertained about fifty couples at a
tea at the Golden Hotel on Satur
day afternoon, honoring her sister
and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. W.
P. Hiltrabrand, of Waubon, Mass.
Former O’Neill Girl Has
Happy Birthday Surprise
Mrs. Ella Gaughen, whose birth
day was Monday, was most happily |
surprised on that day and was the
recipient of many lovely cards,
gifts and flowers. Among the
gifts was a most unique one from
her son, Captain Thomas Gaughen
TWA pilot of New York City. This
gift had come about four days
before with the admonition from
Thomas, “Don’t open until your
birthday,” and “if it doesn’t fit,
send it back.” Mrs. Gaughen and
several of her friends to whom she
showed the box speculated greatly
as to the contents of the small, ex
ceedingly heavy, wooden container,
and made various guesses as to
what it held. Some of them ex
pressed the wish to be there at
the “opening” and so Mrs. Gaughen
cordially invited them in for the
afternoon and planned a little
party for the event. But she had
not reckoned on several other of
her friends of long standing who
knew of her birthday and was,
therefore, greatly surprised when
they too came bringing with them
well filled baskets for a regular
celebration. With this happy and
congenial group present the cere
mony of opening the box began.
The box was labeled “glass’” and I
the shipping value was marked at
$300. The suspence was turned to;
exclamations of delight when the
opened box revealed a thick glass
bank measuring inches
and filled to the limit with silver
coins, currency and checks, the
total value of which one could only
conjecture. Thomas had started
filling the unique 1939 World’s Fair
souvenir bank three years ago.
The glass of which the bank was
made is identical with that of the
glass house displayed at the fair.
The gift was indeed a worthy one
from a worthy son to a wonderful
mother. The ladies spent a most
enjoyable afternoon together. Two
lovely birthday cakes featured the
bountiful lunch, a chocolate angel
food brought by the ladies and a
beautifully decorated whit© layer
cake, a gift of the honoree’s daugh
ter, Mrs. Cecil Muller. It had
formed the center piece for the din
ing table at the Muller home in
Omaha the day before, when Mrs.
Gaughen was the honor guest at
a birthday dinner.—North Bend

Livestock Receipts Light
But Prices Higher
Receipts of livestock at the local
auction were light again this week,
but prices looked higher, especially
on the good kinds. The demand
was very active on practically all
classes. Generally the quality of
the offering was under that of
recent weeks.
In the calf division the receipts
were somewhat limited. The best
steer calves offered cashed at
$11 .75, with the bulk selling from
$10.50 to 11.50 A few heifer
calves cashed as high as $11.00,
but most of them sold from $0.50 to
Not enough yearlings were here I
to make a quotable market.
Cows were fairly well represent
ed and prices weie about steady
with a \yeek ago..
Prices on hogs were definitely
higher with an $8.73 practical top
being paid for the long end of the
butcher hogs. Stock pigs were
quite plentiful. These sold mostly
by the head and brought fancy

Mrs. August Troshynski
Mrs. August iVoshynski, Sr., one
of the few remaining pioneer wo
men of this county, died Friday'
morning, May 16, at her home
north of Emmet, Mrs. Troshynski
had weathered the trials and
storms of a full life of nearly 75]
years, and was a complete invalid
for about three years. The funeral
was held Monday, May 19, at
Epihany Church in Emmet, with
Father O’Brien as celebrant of
the Requiem Mass and Monsignor
McNamara and Father Parr in the
sanctuary. Interment was in Cal
vary cemetery in O’Neill.
Mrs. Troshynski was born Leo
poldine Steskal, in Gross Siegharts,
Austria, on November 9, 1866. At
the age of twelve, Teenie, as her
friends have long known her, came
with her parents to a new land
and settled northwest of O’Neill.
All of her life, with the exception
of the six years she spent in:
O’Neill, and two years in Clear
water, she lived in this very
same farm community. On No-'
vember 3, 1886, she was united in I
marriage to August Troshynski,!
an only son, whose living descend-;
ents now number twenty-eight
The ten children who survive to
mourn the passing of a saintly
mother are; Sister M. Jolenta of
St. Francis Mission, S. Dakota;
Jack, Tom, Bill, Mike and Mrs.
George Wilson of Emmet; August
of Atkinson; Henry of Detroit,
Michigan; Dan of Amelia; and
Sister M. Antonella of O’Neill. Two
sisters, Mrs. Joe Bruder and Mrs.
Pete Tusmla and a brother, Ed
Steskal, join the children in their
The greatest tribute the com
munity could pay to Mrs. Troshyn
ski was the presence of hosts of
friends at the Requiem Mass and
the burial rites. Old time settlers,
relatives and Tyiands from all over
the county came to pay their last
tokens of respect. All of her
children were able to be present
for the funeral except Henry, of
Detroit, who had spent a week
with his mother at Christmas time.
Six of her sons, their mother’s
pride and joy, boie her remains to
the grave.
The kindness and sympathy of
neighbors and friends was a great
source of consolation to those who
are left behind to mourn the pass
ing of another dear, old-fashioned
mother. xxx
