SUNDAY THIRTEENTH WAS
LUCKY DAY AT EMMET
Probably the total number of
people who assembled at Emmet
last Sunday exceeded 1000. The
friend chicken dinners were Serv-1
ed until 8:30, at which time the
weary workers— cooks, waitres
ses, etc., sat down to a simple
meal of hamburgers, for every
tasty plate of chicken had been
The baseball game was very
good, too. The veterans, who per
formed capably and brilliantly at
times, are still baseball players,
making the right play instinctive
ly and moving to the right spot
before the play. Dean Beckwith
was the winnig pitcher, Bill Tro
shynski the loser, and the score
was 5 to 3. The game was inter
esting throughout and produced
many thrills. W. J. Holliday, |
Henry Patterson and Buv Wan-!
ser contributed two hits each. |
Charlie Richter, Frickle, August
Troshynski and Rex Beckwith
were especially good at their po
sitions. Anthony O’Donnell was
umpire, and claims that Earl

‘catch’ of the game, Jhough

Shaw and Mike Troshynski show

Jack Brophy did most with least
motion. John Conard caught a

wonderful spirit in making the
game a happy gathering of good
fellows who delighted to take out
spikes and gloves once more in
a good cause.
Emmet, and the Church of the
Ephiphany, in particular, were
proud to play host to the grand
crowds who came from O’Neill,
Atkinson, Amelia, Stuart, and
other places. Grateful, too.

depths of eternity, and the old
timer must get to bed.
In the alley back of the drug
store on a mild summer morning,
Eli Hershiser adjusted the gear on
a little brown broncho prepara
tory to mounting for a long ride.
On the range of the Spade ranch
with Johnnie Kearney, Eli had
won his spurs and now he was
about to set out on an unusual
mission. There was a frantic
mother in town whose untamed
but harmless offspring had left
the domestic corral and she had
enlisted the old range rider to
round him up and run on the
household brand. I see Eli has
had a birthday celebration. Had
I been in O’Neill at the time he
would have had another guest.
But the story. Hay McClure and
the Tierney boys had rigged out
a light wagon outfit, each supply
ing a horse, and started north to
the reservation, what is now
Boyd county. The lure of Indian
life called to them to leave the
haunts of civilization— the lure
of the open air, the open sky the
long reach of prairie, the mystic
silence of wooded slope, the> foot
print of beaded moccasin by the
Niobrara’s troubled waters, the
curling smoke of wigwam, the
savory venison roasted at camp
fires, the odor of sweat on racing
ponies. They had been gone a
night when Mrs. McClure got Eli
out on the trail. After a day in
the saddle he pulled up at eve
ning on a knoll and spotted the
boys’ outfit near the river in the
valley a mile below. Dismount
ing, he went into camp for the
night. At daybreak he rode into
the slumbering camp by the river
and aroused the boys. There was
a show of protest at the great ad
venture ending in ignominy. But
the boys w£re hungry. Visions of
sitting about the campfire and
partaking of roast leg of antelope
had ended in stark emptiness. So
it was a case of surrender. Eli
filled them up on the less roman
tic but substantial bread and
cheese when they reached Bill
Nollkamper’s at Eagle Mills.
The boys requested that when
they got to town they be taken
home without being seen, but the
obdurate Eli told them he would
herd thefn straight for the main
street. They got home and the
thrilling adventure closed with
one of mother’s good square
meals. And so the beckoning vis
ion of youth broke on the cold,
hard rock of reality.

FUNERAL HELD FOR
Joseph T. Armstrong died at a
hospital in Crawford, Nebr., last
Friday afternoon at 5 o’clock, af
ter an illness of but two '"'ays, of
mesenteric thrombosis, at the age
of fifty-four years and seventeen
days. The body was brought to
this city Sunday morning and the
funeral held at 9 o’clock Mon
day morning from the Catholic
church, Monsignor McNamara of
ficiating, and burial in Calvary
cemetery. The local post of the
American Legion attended the
funeral and a firing squad paid
final tribute to their departed
comrade at the cemetery.
Joe was> born on the old family
homestead northwest of this city
on August 28, 1888, and grew to
manhood in this county, where
he resided until he entered the
army during the first World war.
He served overseas, returning af
ter the war to this city. His ser
vice in the army weakened him
physically and the past twenty
years he has not been robust, hav
ing considerable trouble with his
heart. He came here on August
10 to attend the funeral of his
mother and remained here until
Sept. 5, visiting old-time friends.
On the latter date he left for his
home at Sheridan, Wyo., but was
taken sick at Crawford, Nebr.,
and went to a hospital there,
where he passed away.
In the fall of 1920 he left this
county and moved to Laurel,
Mont., where he ranched for sev
eral years. In January, 1923, he
was united in marriage at Laurel
to Miss June Jones. One daugh
ter was born of this union, Mar
garet, who for several years has
made her home with her aunt,
Mrs. Bess Finley, at Norfolk, Joe
and his wife having separated
several years ago. He is also sur
vived by two brothers: James, of
Sheridan, Wyo., and Michael, of
Washta, S. D. Also by three sis
ters: Mrs. Ellen Erwin, Sheridan,
Wyo.; Mrs. Mary Reiser, Washta,
S. D„ and Mrs. Bess Finley, Nor
In 1932 he moved to Sheridan,
Wyo., where he and his brothers
and sisters became interested in
a coal mine a few miles from that
city, and they have operated it
very successfully ever since.
Joe’s sudden death was a severe
shock to his relatives and many
friends in this city, for it was
only a few days ago that he was
with us, apparently as well as he
had been for the past several
Mrs. Leonard Patterson and
! daughter, Mary, of Larnesa, Calif.,
| came Thursday for a two weeks
visit with her mother, Mrs. Cora
| Hansen, and family.
While Our Homes Still Stand
War with all its horrors, its ever increasing demand for personal
sacrifice, its restriction of individual rights, has cas^ a shadow over
our country. No section, town, village, city or hamlet can escape
its demands, demands that affect the lives of all of us. Yet we here
in America have not felt the full potency of total war, at least many
of our inland towns and cities will be secure from the scourge of the
enemy. But this does not mean that we can ever allow ourselves
to deviate one iota from the avowed purpose of total victory. To
achieve this, we must work, sacrifice, and bend every effort indi
vidually and collectively te contribute our efforts where they are
vitally needed to win the war.
In every home in America, without exception, there are things
that have long outlived their usefulness. True, they may be wrap
ped in memories—delightful mementoes of children at play. John's
first tricycle . . . Mary's doll carriage . . . the skates that Bill learned
on. . . . These are only things . . . things that have passed their
utilitarian value, that we are asked to give as scrap. They aren't
scrap to us . . . they mean something in our lives. But our homes
are still standing here. Over there they have a different kind of
scrap . . . they have the beams that used to support the steeple of
their church . . . the iron rails that little hands used to grasp to
help them up the stairs. . . . Yes—they have much more scrap of
that kind than we . . . but let us give the scrap IN our homes—and
not the scrap OF our homes.
Weather permitting, the finals
of the City Golf Tournament will
be played next Sunday. Max Gol
den meets Allen Jaszkowiak in
the championship flight. In the
second flight it is Paddy O’Don
nell versus Ed Campbell. The
third flight finds Chas. E. Stout
playing John Alderman. In last
week’s play the results were:
Championship flight: Max Gol
den defeated Ben Grady, one up;
Allen Jaszkowiak defeated Rev.
Byersdorfer three and one. Sec

feated Kelsey Coyne, two and
one; Ed Campbell defeated Wm.
Biglin four and three. Third
