    The Fron ' ,. 1
By Romaine Saunders
One of those red and black
and organge monstrosities to be
found in the magazine racks has a
list of 58 editors, assistant editors,
managers and other functionaries.
It is said too many cooks spoil the
broth, and with the ideas of 58
editors to coordinate into one pub
lication this magazine sets less
type than a country newspaper.
The name of Secretary of Labor
Perkins not appearing in these
labor rows inspires an Iowa editor
to remark that the labor field, the
past few months, has been no
place for a lady.
Hybrid corn appears to be held
in high esteem in some quarters.
Out this way the old reliable yel
low out classes the hybrids. The
hybrids produce a large cob and
small kernel. The cattle men
perfer more corn and less cob.
With nine years af unparalled
extravagence as our public ex
ample, word now comes out of
Washington something about citi
szen practicing economy. The
suspicion is not absent throughout
the country that this monumental
"defense’’ bally ho has some con
nection with the thought of divert
ing public attention from the New
Deal domestic mess.
Bill Dierks sustained the loss of
five cows that got into his corn
and stowed away more than bo
vine digestive machinery could
handle. The C. E. Addison herd'
was depleted one cow from the
same cause. Sand hill cows feed|
from morning till night on grass
and get fat, but corn is not often \
a part of their feed.
Another home has been made
desolate, hearts bleed in anguish,!
soul wounds too deep for words.’
A child crushed under the wheels:
of one of our modem Juggernauts
at the family home near Atkinson
The little one out with its father
and aglow with childish interest
in the work about the farm. As
the story comes to us, the child
was with his father who was mov
ing hay with a car and trailer. He
supposed the child had gone to the
house but instead was between
the car and trailer and was run
over as the car was started.
Adults must learn, through trag
edy and heartache, that danger
lurks on every .hand for the child!
too young to look odt for himself
it is not enough to think he is in
a place of safety—find out foi^
sure. But with these precautions,
as in this sad affair, accidents can
not be wholly avoided.
“And Joseph died, and all his:
brethern and all that generation.’’
Age creeps stealthily along. The
generation that sprung from the
first pioneers on the virgin prairie!
of Holt county will soon be but a
memory. John Weekes, C. H.
Christensen, Casper Englehaupt,
Mrs. Zimmerman—four more now;
removed from life’s activities. I
knew them for over half a century,
John since he was a school boy
under the tutilage of Prof. O'-1
Sullivan in the little frame school
house on west Douglas street. I
saw Sam Thompson in O’Neill
lately. Sam’s memory goes back!
to the days when there was no]
O’Neill and he chased Antelope
on his pony over on Dry Creek.;
Sam greeted me by saying, “We
are getting old.” Maybe that’s i
so— but not superanuated. Then
until the silver cord be loosed, the;
golden bowl be broken the pitcher I
be broken at the fountain, life
holds its animated interests—its
work, its play, its opportunities toj
touch the harp strings that will
bring a bit of melody into the)
lives of others.
Nature’s tinted pictures hold no
charm to the one whose vision is)
never lifted from the pursuit of:
things that feed the carnal tastes, j
What to such are ‘‘Plato and the,
swing of Pleiades? What the long,
reaches of the peaks of song, the
rift of dawn, the reddening of the
rose?” But to those who some
times ramble “through the green
lanes of the country . . .
whose hearts are fresh and simple,
who have faith in God and nature’’ i
—who turn from the revolting
scenes of human butchery—from
the pursuit of gain and the vanity!
of ariflcial life—this mid-autumn
holds a matchless charm. Shortly
before break of day on the
15th, and for a few mornings prev
Pioneer Laid to Rest
Here Last Saturday
Funeral rites for Casper F.
Engelhaupt, who passed away
suddenly at his home at Ingle
wood, California, were held Sat
urday morning at 9:00 o’clock, at
St. Peter and Paul’s church at
Butte, with Rev. F. J. Werthman
celebrant at the Requiem High
Casper Francis Engelhaupt was
born at Mellrichstadt, Bavaria,
Germany, on July 26, 1868, and
died November 10th, 1941, at the
age of 73 years, 3 month and 12
On March 26, 1883, he em
migrated to the United States with
his parents, brothers and sisters,
locating first at Fulton, 111.,
where the family remained until
December pf that year when they
moved to O’Neill, Nebr., locating
on a homestead north of that
place. On June 13, 1893, he was
united in marriage to Mary Lud
wig of O’Neill. To this union seven
children were born, three of
whom died in infancy. Most of
their early married life was spent
in Holt county where Mr. Engel
haupt operated a creamery at
Amelia, Nebraska, for a few years
after having attended the Univer
sity of Wisconsin where he learn
ed the trade of butter-making.
He served as Deputy County
Clerk of Holt county in the early
days and could tell many interest
ing stories of the early political
life of the county. Following this
the family moved to California
where he was employed for three
years as butter-maker in one of
Southern California’s largest
The family returned to Ne
braska in 1904, locating at Em
met operating a general mer
chantile store and hotel. In 1913
the family moved to Butte, where
for a number of years he was en
gaged in the Hardware, Furni
ture and Undertaking business.
Later, for a few years, he operated
a ranch near Dustin, Nebr. Fol
lowing the death of wife in 1922,
he moved to California, taking up
the work as Inspector for the Ser
vel Refrigerator Co., of Los
Angeles. On August 23, 1926, he
married Mrs. Angeline Meloche.
Surviving him are his widow,
two daughters, Mrs. Edgar R.
Johnson and Mrs. Lucy B. Kocum
of Butte: Two sons, Casper P. of
Santa Barbara, Calif., and Ed
ward O. of Lincoln; Three brothers
Michael of Chambers; August of
East Chicago, Ind., and Edmund
of Butte, and one sister, Mrs. John
F. Reiser of Butte. Ten grand
children and one great grandchild,
other relatives and friends.
His later years were spent in re
tirement following a paralytic
stroke four years ago, but prior
to that he had always taken an
active part in church and civic
affairs. He was a willing and
helpful neighbor and a kind and
devoted father to his family, who
will always cherish his memory
His remains were accompanied
to Butte by his son Casper. Due
to ill health the widow was unable
to attend. Interment tbok place in
the family burial lot in Calvary
cemetery at O’Neill. ***
Nebraska is on the way to a
record, but it will be for consecut
ive games lost, instead of won,
unless they can clean Iowa next
Saturday and to do it they will
have to play a different brand of
football than they did last week.
ious, there was spread on the
eastern sky a picture of celestial
lovliness. Thin clouds, bathed in
the red glow of oncoming sun
rise, hung above the horizon, the
slender curve of the moon just
over the treetops and here and
there a point of light from a star
twinkling out of the gloom of the
early morning sky. I have noth
ing which calls me to be up and
astir in the morning, but as the
late Jim Shanner down at Page
said if he was kept in bed after
5 in the morning it would have to
be done with chains, so I find my
self early out in the morning. A
curtain of celestial splendor
spreads over the prairie at night,
the heavens aglow in silent grand
eur, but the hour before the full
flash of the morning sun has an
irresistible charm. Maybe it will
be said, “What do you think of a
saphead that gets up at 5 o’clock
to look at the sky?.’’ I am neither
astronomer, astrologer, necroman
cer nor stargazer but beliieve the
practical business of living is
simplified and made a little more
worthwhile as we see the beauty
in the infinite works of nature,
inspiring adoration of the Infinite
Creator of the manifold wonders
about us.

Market Tone Firm
Ibices Stronger Monday
The local livestock market took!
a decided turn for the better j
Monday with practically all class-1
es sharing the sti onger trend. Re
ceipts were a little lighter than a
week ago. Action was good and
brisk, demand readily absorbed
the day’s supplies.
The best lightweight steer
calves paid $12.00 but this kind
was not very plentiful. The bulk
of the steer calves sold from $10.50
to $11.50 with many selling in the
upper brackets. Heifer calves
ranged in price $9.50 to $10.50
with a few choice lights going a
little higher.
Light weight yearlings were
popular and supplies were readily
absorbed at stronger prices. Top
piest of the yearling steers cashed
at $10.25 but the long end of the
offering paid from $9,00 to $10.00.
Cow receipts continued heavy
and prices looked somewhat
stronger. Good young heiferettes
reached $8.05 which is a full
quarter over last week’s top on
this class. Feeding cows showed a
firm undertone and paid mostly
from $5.50 to $6.50. Most of the
cows were sold in carload lots.
Bulk ruled about steady with a
week ago.
Receipts in the hog division
advanced again this week as did
the prices paid for them. The
market reflected a healthy tone
and a top of $16.00 was paid for
butcher hogs. About half of the
butchers sold at this price the
other half sold at $9 90 and $9.95.
Sows likewise, shared the price
advance with the bulk of the
offering cashing at $9.50 to $9.60.
Feeder pigs sold mostly from
$11.30 to $11.15.
The next regular auction will
be held on Monday, November 24.

Clarke-McNary Trees
Available In 1941
Farmers and ranchers wanting
application blanks for the pur
chase of Clarke-McNary trees
may obtain them soon at the
county agent’s office in O’Neill.
Holt County has led the state
in both Clarke-McNary and other
tree plantings for the past several
years and will probably be more
interested than ever this year,
due to the favorable moisture con
ditions. It is estimated that Ne
braska farmers will obtain more
than one million trees next year
under the Clarke-McNary law.
Imporved moisture conditions in
most parts of the state during the
past few months will cause ex
tensive plantings of the trees and
farmers interested in obtaining
seedlings from this source should
place their applications early.
