Death has taken in its cold
clutch another pioneer of the
county. Mrs. Ella F Waldo, moth
er of Beebe Waldo of Amelia,
The funeral was held Sunday af
ternoon at the Amelia Methodist
church, it tended by many more
than could gam access to the;
budding. The pastor. Rev Pea
cock, and Rev. Conrad, were n
charge of funeral rites, the .atter
preaching. Deceased was 4 years
of age She was the laughter af;
Mr. and Mrs. John Bishop, who
homesteaded 18 miles northeast
of O'Neill in 1885. Sts. Waldo
attained womanhood in that ac
tion of the county and was one of
the school teachers of sod-house
days. She was married at Minne
ola, this county. November 2ft
1888. to Hiram E. Waido. She
was the mother of nine children,
three of whom, with the husoanu
preceded her in death. Sunai
was in the Chambers cemetery
under the direction of C. S. Bar
num of Nelign.
Our governor, among others*
has written for publication his
views of the future of the repub
lican party. The republican party
has a future as it has a past—a
past of which no American s
ashamed. Prejudice warps the
sentiments of some, but for na
tional achievement no man neea
blush at the republican record.
Since 1361 there have been thir
teen republicans occupy rhepres
idencv—Lincoln. Johnson. Grant.
Hayes. Garfield. Arthur. Ham
son, McKinley. Theodore Roose
velt. Taft, Harding. Cooildge.
Hoover. Three democrats have oc
cupied the White House—Cleve
land. Wilson and the present in
cumbent. Singularly enough, the
administrations of these three
have seen distressing nines.
Coxey armies. World War. bonus
armies, federal debt, another
world war and billions in bond is
sues. The bet republican pres
ident inherited a wrecked nation
and a wrecked world. What is m
store for the next?
K it is a time that tries men s
souls-, it is also a time that is try
ing some fellows' nerve. Think
vou could, hang bean down
through the open hatch of a
bomber a mile in the sky and
work for an hour making repairs
so that the bomber could land
safely, while two fellows held
vou by the legs’ Performing that
dizzy job somewhere in Australia
brought a citation for valor to an
American boy. Sgt. Billy C. Grab
ble I recall being thrilled as a
at the feat of a Milwaukee
fireman. Guests were being res
cued from a burning hotel. A
lady was being evacuated from
her room on the top floor by
means of a ladder spanning the
dizzy space from window ledge
to the roof of an adjacent build
ing. She fell and would have
plunged head down to certain
death but a nervy and husky fire
man caught her by one fast and
held on until rescued. Man ts a
strange creature. He will rise to
sublime heroism and descend in
revolting acts of cruelty.

Tri State Produce Plant
Is Total Loss From Fire
The Tn State Produce plant in'
this city was destroyed by fire, of'
an undetermined origin, about 5
o clock Wednesday morning, caus
ing a 1ms estimated by Mr. Wil
son. manager of the plant, of
S250.000, partially covered by in
The fire alarm was turned in
about 4:30. but when the fire de
partment responded the entire
building frorr the east to the west
was enveloped in flames, so it was
evident that the fire had been
burning tor some time before the
alarm was given Two watchmen
were in the building at the time
of the fire, but they were down
m the basement getting things in
shape far the coming day’s bus
iness One of them said that he
had been in the basement about
fifteen minutes when the door
bell into the office rang. He start
ed up to see who was ringing the
bell and said that when he got to
the head of the stairs the office
was filled with fire and smoke
and that he could not get out that
way and went back to the base
ment and crawled out of the
bunding through the coal chute
and gave the alarm from the de
pot The flames spread very rap
idly and by 7 o'clock the entire
building was a mass of burned
An unusually heavy stock of
chickens eggs and produce was
m the plant at the time and con
sumed. There were 23.000 live
chickens. 1800 cases of eggs. 1200
hags of feed and 750 bales of
binder twine A truck loaded was
standing at the unloading dock
cm the north side of the building

Phil Sherman, president of the
Tri State Produce Company,
came up from Sioux City Wed
nesday morning. In conversation
with a Frontier reporter, Mr.
Sherman said they would rebuild,
if they could get the material
, with which to construct a new
plant. Insurance appraisers ar
rived in the city about noon Wed
nesday and we understand that
matters were satisfactorily ad
The building that was destroy
ed was built in the year 1926 by
the Armour Company at a cost
of about |l 00.000, who operated
the plant until it was partially
destroyed hy fire in May. 1937.
The plant was idle for several
months until it was finally pur
chased by the Tri State Produce
Company and has been operated
by them for the past four years
! or more.
The plant had the largest pay
1 roll in the city, having in their
employ at the time of the fire 85
persons, who were thrown out of
employment. They had a very
large business, in fact about
■ double that of the Armour Com
pany when they were operating
the plant Their payroll for last
week was $2,200. An idea of the
amount of business transacted by
the company can be learned from
the fact that during the month of
August 31 carloads of dressed
poultry was shipped.
Many buyers far livestock were
an hand again last Monday at the
local livestock auction, and the
day's receipts found ready outlet
Demand for cattle is gaining mo
mentum steadily despite the
somewhat jittery tension that has
developed over price ceilings in
recent weeks. Action was brisk
1 here and prices showed strength
after last week's dip. Few choice
cattle were here, in general, the
quality ranked only medium to
Steer calves scaling 300 lbs.
reached $14.70, that price paid
sparingly. Steer calves moved
mostly from $1230 to $13.90; the
wide price spread chiefly due to
quality. Heifer calves topped at
$12.55! with the bulk making
$11.50 to $12.25.
The top price paid in the year
ling class was $12.85 on 530 lb.
steers. Bulk cashed at $1130 to
$1230. Heifers scaling 500 lbs.
made $11.90 with the long end
ranging from $10.50 to $11.50.
Several loadlots of yearlings
were sold.
A considerable number of two
year-olds showed up and the
steers rated an extreme top of
$12.35 on a scant few. Bulk rang
ed in price from $11 to $12.
Good beef cows topped at $10.35
! on a few with the long end plac
ing in the high nines. Medium
grades made $8 to $9. Plainer
! kinds sold mostly in the sevens.
' Bulls placed in the high nines
up to $10.10.
An extreme top of $14.05 was
paid on a few butchers scaling
220 lbs. However, the practical
I price range was $13.85 to $13.90.
Sows paid $13.40 to $13.50. Feed
ers topped at $15.25.
A few sheep completed the
day’s offering. Next auction will
be on Monday. Sept. 14.
Emery Peterson, who has been
employed "with the Nebraska De
partment of Roads and Irrigation
for the past sixteen years, has re
ceived a promotion from field me
chanic to district mechanic, and
left Tuesday for Ainsworth to
make his home. Mrs. Peterson
plans on joining him there about
October 1.
Mrs D. H. Cronin returned
home Sunday night from a week's
visit with relatives and friends in
Lincoln She was accompanied
home by her sister, Mrs. F. H.
Butts, who will visit here until
tomorrow morning, when she will
leave for Alexandria, La., where
she will spend a few days visit
ing her son, Lt. Rex Butts, who is
stationed at an army camp there.
She will then leave for San Bern
adino. Calif., where she will join
her husband and make her fu
ture home.
Last Friday Dr. Brown pur
chased the Miss Anna Donohoe
1 rooming house on the corner of
(Clay and Second streets and Drs.
Brown and French will move the
O’Neil] General Hospital there on
, or about October 1, 1942.
This building is much more
suitable for a hospital than the
one they have occupied here for
j the past eight years. The new
building contains two rooms more
than the one now in use, which in
itself is a great advantage. The
rooms are also larger and better
adapted to hospital purposes, as
' it was originally erected for a
rooming house, and the hospital
now in use being originally erect
! ed for a dwelling house.
Around 160 Holt county teach
i ers attended pre-opening day ex
ercises that was held at the
O'Neill public high school on Fri
day, Sept. 4. Glen Anderson of
Lincoln, Mrs. Ruth Rector, A.A.A.
Field Woman of Holt county,
Mrs. Elizabeth Harbottle and the
Misses Hilda Harley and Ella
Eisert, teachers of Holt county,
led discussions on the program.
An instrumental trio, directed by
Ira George, furnished music.
On Wednesday there were still
twenty Cherry county rural
i school districts which had nob re
| ported hiring a teacher for the
i coming year. Even with boosted
' pay rates, teachers are hard to
get. Many of the town schools
along this line of railroad are
still short of teachers, and may
have to start school without a full
I faculty.—Valentine Republican.
