Ed Hall Purchases
Local Sale Barn
A bus ness deal was consuma
ted in this city the latter part of
the week whereby Ed Hall pur
chased the O’Neill Livestock Com
mision company and will take
possession the first of December.
Mr. Hall has been engaged in
the ranching business for several
years and has been very suc
cessful. At the present time he
is living on his ranch northwest
of this city, but he will dispose
of his live stock and farm machin
ery at a sale next Tuesday and
will move to this city so that he
can give his personal attention to
the business at the stock yards.
His experience in the cattle,
sheep and horse business for sev
eral years gives him the necessary
experience for this business and
we predict that he will make a
success of the O’Neill Livestock
Commission Company, as he has
of his livestock ventures.
Mr. Hall informs us that he will
retain all of the same employees
at the sale yard and that tne bus
iness will be carried on under
his ownership the same as it has
been under the present manage
ment, which insures the continu
ation of a first class sales barn in
this city. Mr. Hall says that he
will do his best to render the same
efficient service that the public
have been receiving and will ap
preciate their business in the
For several years the O’Neill
Livestock Commission company
has been operated by John Berri
gan, Joe Gallagher and Cliff Ray.
These men made the market one
of the outstanding ones in north
central Nebraska. All of these
gentlemen have other business
interests which demand their at
tention and for this reason they
disposed of the market.
A TRIBUTE IN MEMORY OF
JACOB K. ERNST
This community was saddened
by the sudden death of our old
time friend, Jake K. Ernst, who
passed away after a brief illness.
He was a great organizer, inter
ested in the community affairs
and was the possessor of a fine
sense of humor. His disposition
is best described as jolly. He was
a big hearted man, one who took a
sincere interest in those who had
found life rough and who helped
to make the way easier for them
to walk. Mr. Ernst, a man of
stout build, with a hearty laugh
and a fund of stories and who
would often be found surrounded
by his numerous friends, fasci
nated by his brilliant wit and his
personality. He enjoyed company,
delghted in conservations, always
willing to express his views when
ever somethng tickled his fancy
or stirred his emotion. We would
gather around him to listen to
his narratives, eager for some of
his witty comments. There was
nothing in his make-up to make
anyone shy with him. The es
teem and the affection of his
many friends in a vast commun
ity was demonstrated last Sunday
by the large concourse of old
friends and neighbors who accom
panied him to his last resting
place. This is the way we will
always remember J. K. The
family has the sympathy of a vast
number of friends that payed
homage to a worthy husband and
father. E. E.
CARD OF THANKS
We desire to express our sin
cere thanks to the many kind
friends and neighbors for their
many acts of kindness and sym
pathy extended following the
death of our beloved mother, Mrs.
Ellen Jane Enders.—Her Children.

meeting to order, after the cover
ed dish luncheon had been served.
The Green Light, L. B. 295,
a bill passed to enable counties
or groups of counties to establish
local public health departments,
was the topic of the day.
Many years ago an English
statesman pointed out that “the
health of the people is really the
foundation upon which all their
happiness' and all their powers as
a state depend. (Desraeli, 1796).
With Nebraska lagging in the
development of a health program
for the protection of its citizens,
and our soldier boys coming back
from foreign lands with tropical
diseases, which may become epi
demics, well organized health ser
vices are essential. Therefore let
us do our part in the develop
ment of this bill.

Hearings Held Wednesday
On Soil Conservation
Forty interested farmers were
present at hearings held by the
State Soil Conservation Commit

It requires about 100,000 tons of

It is admitted that the senators
from eight southern states can
defeat the wishes of the other
forty states by talking the poll

Mar. Farley’s observations on

around.” Too many fuehrers
scattered across the country.
One penny was a day’s wage
in the time of the Ceasars. The
Homan penny was equal in, value
to 17 cents from the U. S. mint.
That would hire a Yankee union
man 7 minutes and 50 seconds.
Secretary of the Navy Knox
regards the talk about this being
the last war as a delusive dream.
Cold realities are not popular but
the peace makers may as well
enjoy their dream while it lasts.
Charles A. Lindberg is carry

Ford on a new type of engine for
the motive power of a huge

who is going to buy them.
According to the published re
port of the chairman of the War

“And when the chief priests and
Pharisees had heard his parables,
they perceived that he spoke of
them. But when they sought to
lay hands on him they feared the
multitude.” The multitude,
humanity in the aggregate, men
and madams of every known de
gree of quality, cultured and un
couth—Homo in the mass. It
doesn’t know its strength. It could
have prevented every tragedy
from the cross to Pearl Harbor.
When something of which he did
not approve was brought to the
attention of my maternal grand
father he epitomized the attitude
of the multitude in few words,
“Such doin’s aint right.” That’s
about as far as we go. If words
of disapproval were accompanied
by the giant clutch of the multi

mighty scourge of war would be
crushed to earth.

our anthem is not to survive. Is
the militant Star-Spangled Ban
ner on the way out? I hope not.
Objection to it is raised on the
allegation that it is diffcult to
sing. Maybe so. Anything is
difficult for a people who never
sing. The Indianapolis Times
has been moved to raise a battle
cry for our great national song.
“The nation of which it is the
anthem was difficult to establish.
It was difficult for the Pilgrim
Fathers to land on a stern and
rock-bound coast. It was difficult
for Daniel Boone to make a path
in the wilderness. It was diffi
cult for George Washington and
his barefoot soldiers to hold on
at Valley Forge. It was difficult
for the pioneers to trek across
! the great plains, bearing their
children and burying their dead
by the wayside. It was difficult
for Lincoln to save the Union. It
was difficult for men and women
to build a new south out of the
ashes of Reconstruction.
“It was difficult to send 3,000
000 men across the seas in 1917
and 1918. It was difficult to es
tablish women’s rights, and child
ren’s rights, and labor’s rights
and farmers’ and businessmen’s
rights in this land. It is difficult
to maintain political democracy
against selfishness, divisions and
bossism. The way of dictatorship

“The Star-Spangled Banner is
'too high.’ Of course it is high,
i like the aims of this country.
High like the cost of being an
American. High, but not too high.
“Let us learn this heart-lifting
song, difficult though it is. It is
little enough to do for our be
loved nation, bought for our en
joyment by heroes, great and
humble, at the price of so much
difficulty, past, present and to
