VOL. LXII O’NEILL, NEBRASKA, THURSDAY, October 2, 1941 Number 21
By Komaine Saunders
A strange, brooding silence lies
over the prairies. No whirring of j
wings of pheasant or prairie:
chicken as you move across the |
landscape in solitary rambles. |
The meadow lark is gone, the
dainty oriole, the love-lorn turtle j
dove and the magpie are neither;
seen nor heard. The hawk, the|
golden eagle, the somber-coated
raven, soaring on stately wings
in search of prey in early autumn
are not here as formerly. Butter
flies and bumble bees have hidden
away and the buzz of insects has
been stilled. In half hour’s ramble
you may see a frightened rabbit
bound away from you—but the
prairie, in the closing days of
September, still robed in the
summer garb of green, lies silent
—ominious portent that the garb
of summer green awaits the white
shroud of winter’s cold embrace.
Three millions Tutons, brave
men enslaved to a blood thirsty
monster, dead or wounded along
a far-flung battle line across the
vast Russian valleys and plains.
Perhaps no fewer of the defend
ers have gone down in the shock
of battle. Somewhere in the
homeland there are mothers whose
souls are wrung with anguish
over sons who never more come
home. Groups of our own boys,
brave Nebraskans from the towns.
the farms, tne ranwi«,
county taken into military camps
makes us alarmingly aware that
the world tragedy is reaching its
bloody fingers to tear the heart
strings of fathers and mothers
among u, The valleys of
the Euphrates and the 1'gris>
along the troubled Tiber, Cart
age and Thermopylae, Titus at old
Jerusalem, the plains of Phl»PP».
the land of the Incas. Austelitz
and Waterloo, Verdun and the
Rhine, venerable China, from
Warsaw to the Volga and acrosss
the Helenic lands-scenes of un
speakable butchery. To what
purpose? The Creator “hath
made of one blood all nations of
men to dwell on all the face of
the earth.’’ At intervals, as cent
ury after century dawns and pas
ses into night, a wise guv struts
across the pages of history pio
proposing with a bloody hand to
„ amalgamate into one people the
• nations, whose “bounds of habi
tation.” God has appointed, i here
is a way that seemeth right unto
a man but the end thereof are the
ways of death.’
Maybe the interest stirred up
in the towns along that bit of rail
road from O’Neill to Sioux City
will result in an awakened public
to the need of turning more busi
ness to these branch lines if they
are kept in operationn Some forty
odd years ago I ventured a youth
ful enterprise by taking over a sort
of crude buffet service on the stub
train on whet was then known as
the Short Line. Itfy temperment
not being molded to that sort of
business, after two months I re-1
tired, though the business brought
ssome profit and what seemed to
a youth quite a bit of fun.. My
best customer at any one serving
was the late John Harmon. Like
W. J. Bryan, John’s capacity at
meal time was remarkable. He
was on the train once these two
months coming out of Sioux City.
That night he cleanded up my
stock of hot cofFee, sandwiches,
boiled eggs and pie. Along
about Randolph I closed up the
buffett and sat down for the re
mainder of the run to chat with
the brakeman. informing other
inquirers after lunch that all I had
left was part of a box of oranges.
One trip a horse got on the track
^ in front of the engine down about
BWalerbury and deftly picked his
fl way from tie to tie across a long
!■ railroad bridge. One trip out
^ from Sioux Ciy the conductor
1 was quite the worse for having
I been in his cups, so the brakeman
i was flagging the train through
■ an i at a stop for a station a
f^Baman dead drunk was helped
l^Board. Then the passengers had
■ ■onething to joke over. On an-!
r other occasion, soon after leaving
4 Sioux City, Patrick McCoy, a set
tler just west of O’Neill who had
fflbeen to the city for medical treat-j
I®^Bvt breathed his last. The train
^Bed on to O Neill with a dead j
B among tne passtnffer. We
got four passengers cue morning I
off! the Northwestern, two in-!
^B woman, one a negress, in the'
ra ■- “ ~!
Half way to the city I was called
upon to help subdue the white
woman and put on the straight
jacket. A lot of things happened
during those two months, and for
sentimental reasons I trust to
learn the the little stub train is to
continue to function.

Saint Mary’s Academy lost
| their first game under lights in
the city park by the score of 56
to 6. It was a better game than
' the score indicated. Page had a
pretty fast team but if Saint
Mary’s team had more experience
the score would have been differ
ent. The only excitement that the
Saint Mary’s fans had was when
Jack Gallagher intercepted a pass
on his own goal line and ran the
eighty yards necessary for a
touchdown. Jack started his run
in the middle of the field and
then cut to the sidelines stiff arm
ing the only player left and went
over for the touchdown. The ex
.tra point failed when John Proti
vinsky, an end substitute dropped
a pass in the end zone. The start
ing line-up for Saint Mary’s was:
Pat Hines and Vincent Streeter,
ends; Jean Higgins, center; Jack
Harty, quarterback; Jim Higgins,;
halfback and Jack Gallagher, full-;
back. Saint Mary’s next game is
with Stuart, whom Saint Mary’s!
beat last year 19 to 0 and 46 to 0
in 26 minutes of play.

Despite the inclement weather
last Monday, the livestock sales
pavilion was filled to overflow
ing with an immense crowd of
people, one of the largest ever
assembled here for a livestock
auction. The seating capacity of
the building was taxed to the
limit all afternoon. A large
number of buyers were here and
cattle were shipped out of here to
several states, including Illinois,
Indiana, South Dakota, Iowa,
Kansas, Missouri as well as to
many eastern Nebraska feed lots.
The auction was a snappy affair
and the action was very brisk
The quality of the cattle offer
ed was good and prices show
ed a definite upswing. The price
paid for the Grand Champion calf
was the tidy sum of $20.75 per
hundred weight and the Reserve
Champion paid $19.50. The calf
which took third topped all in
price at $21.00 per hundred
weight. This calf was consider
ably lighter in weight than the
champion and reserve which fact
probably accounts for the higher
price. Other 4-H club calves paid
correspondingly fancy prices.
In the Commercial calf division
a high of $13.50 was paid for a
small package of high quality
Hereford steers averaging 375
pounds. Both Angus and Here
ford calves weighing from 400
pounds to 500 pounds tied for
price at $13.25. Several load lots
of choice quality Hereford steer
calves wt. about 350 lbs. sold at
$13.00. The same price was paid
for Angus calves of similar
weight. Several load lots of
calves—booth straight steer and
mixed—sold at $12.75. Hereford]
heifer calves, in short carload
lots, paid $12.55 with full carload
lots going at $12.00 to $12.25.
A good supply of yearllings
was'on hand and the best kind
sold at $11.95. These were in
load lots and averaged 500 lbs.
Others in this class averaging 550
lbs., paid $11.40.
The supply of two year olds
was very limited but the price
looked fully steady to strong.
Cows were not too plentiful and
few really good cows showed up,
probably due to the fact that the
day was given over to calves al
most exclusively.
Hogs were in light supply.
Butchers ranged in price from
$10.30 to $10.50 and sows paid
from $9.30 to $9.(50. Not enough
pigs were here to make a quotable

be held on Monday, October 6.
