Rev. E. W. Pedersen was happily
surprised when his father, brother
and sister drove into the yard where
he and Mrs. Pedersen make their
home at Harry White’s, having
.driven up from Lincoln after a 3
o’clock start Saturday morning.
Tne senior Mr. Pedersen is an old
friend of the writer and also hap
‘ pily surprised us by a visit. They
returned to Lincoln Sunday after
The girls 4-H club met with
Bemedine Kennedy Monday. After
the noonday refreshments in which
a freezer of ice cream largely fig
ured, the girls—some 25 of them—
demonstrated their cunning at
such domestic intrigue as quilt
making. Around 5 o’clock the
neighborhood gave echo to a lusty
club yell, demonstrating that our
ranch lassies have vocal accom
plishments equal to the best college
groups. Mrs. Blake Ott of Amelia,
sponsor for the club, planned an
outing for the girls at one of the
lakes over in Swan an evening this
week when the girls were to have
a swim and spend the night in
camp by the lake.
Mr. and Mrs. Ralph McCaully of
Gordon were guests of Mr. and
Mrs. C. E. Addison Sunday. Mrs.
McCaully is a sister of Mr. Addison
and their childhood home was over
in the old Minneola community.
The southwest is clearing the!
decks for the annual hay harvest,
the blue grass stripping having
been finished early in the week.
Iowa and Minnesota buyers have
taken much of the seed. One local
rancher, Charly Peterson, has also
bought seed and this with the yield
from his own large holdings, he
has put on the market at St. Joseph,
Mo. There was a good crop of seed
and the meadows carry the heavi
est crop of hay seen in recent
years. Cap Addison is among these
who has prepared to go into his
haying job with a new tractor hay
outfit. Horse mowers are more and
more going into the discard in this
tall grass country.
Frank Witt has moved from
Swan Lake to Burwell, leaving
Milton Lutz in charge of his store
at the lake. Mr. Witt will continue
his grocery and cream route in this
territory, making the rounds on
Tuesday instead of Wednesday, as
The Grim Reaper came again and
cut down another. Few are left
standing on the shore—maybe one,
two, three—of that youthful group
who a half century ago were a
dynamic force bearing with urvre
tenting energy not only on the
destinies focusing at the county
seat but over a wide reach of “New
Country.” Dickson—big, large of
heart, youthful, forceful, impetious
of head crowned with red glory and
set on great shoulders, facinated
“us boys” by his ability to play
baseball, kick a football, knock
down a bully or shoot a prairie
chicken. Out of memories mists
I see him as he came to town—
green awkward, but with purpose
and force that was ready to crush
all obsticales. As Lawyer Dickson
handled many lawsuits. Some say
the most famous was the Scott
case. The late Jimmy Early
thought Dick’s greatest legal vic_
tory was when he proved the Early
notes found in the failed Elkhorn
Valley bank were forgeries. As
Judge, Dickson made as good a
record as any who has presided in
a Nebraska Court. His successor
whoever it may be, will find a
record to work too.
I had scanned the thin line of the
northwest horizon each evening for
some weeks to catch the painted
charm of a June sunset, but not
until late last week did the brush
of nature’s artist touch the heavens
with a glow of color that invited
one to pause and look. A small
dark cloud stood in irregular outline
as if resting on the floor of the
distant prairie, obscuring the full
yellow dish of the setting sun. The*
ragged edge of the cloud was thus
emblasoned with a golden glow of
sunlight from which radiated pink
tints above the green along a far
horizon, while above the cloud arose
a fan of deep blue high into the
heavens. Beside the beauty of th"
picture spread on God’s great can
vass, the scene held a promise to
the weather-wise prairie dweller.
Miss Violet June Riley, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Riley, living
northeast of this city, and Lowell
Clou3e, of O’Neill, were united in
marriage at 7-30 the evening of
June 24, 1941, at the Methodist
parsonage by the Rev. V. C. Wright.
The bride was a member of the
graduating class of 1941 of the
O’Neill High school. She wore a
shell pink crepe dress with pale
blue acceissories, and was attend
ed by a sister of the groom, Miss
The groom wore a light gray
business suit and was attended by
; his father, Marvin Clouse.
The groom is the son of Mr. and
Mrs. Marvin Clouse and is now
employed by the O’Neill Creamery.
After the ceremony friends and
relatives of the bride and groom
were entertained at a reception at
the home of the bride’s parents.
Mr. and Mrs. Clouse will make
their home with the groom’s par
ents for the present. xx

Pheasants Secured For
Citizens of O’Neill and vicinity,
co-operating with the State Game
Cominision, have been able to secure
for this territory several hundred
pheasants for re-stocking purposes.
Last week a state truck brought
in a load of these birds from the
game farm located south of Nor.
folk, and they were released in fa
vorable localities in different parts
of the county, particularly in places
where protecting cover and water
can be had. It is earnestly urged
that farmers and ranchers give
these newly planted birds protec
tion until they have had time to
accustom themselves to their new
environment, and it is hoped that
illegal shooting will not be indulg
ed in, since we cannot expect the
Game Commission to continue to
furnish game stock to feed the
