Pioneer Passes Away
At Stuart Hospital
Burt Shearer, a pioneer of this
city and of Stuart, passed away
in the Stuart hospital on Thurs

Bert Shearer came to O’Neill in
the summer of 1888, coming here
from Norfolk, and worked in a
harness shop here for over a year.
In 1900 he went to Stuart and
worked at his trade in a harness
shop there for a year and then
purchased the shop and was the
owner of a successful business
there until 1921 when he sold his
business and retired. He contin
ued to make his home in Stuart
until after the death of his wife,
in 1922, since which time he had
made his home with his son,
Mahlon, north of Stuart, until the
past year or so when he made,
his home in Stuart in order to be 1
able to receive medical treatment.
Burt Shearer was a splendid
man and had a host of friends in
. various parts of the county. It
« had been the writer’s privilege to;
have known Burt for fifty-five
years and we always found him
to be honest, square and upright,
and a man among men. His pass
ing removes another of the real
old-timers who had much to do
with the upbuilding of this county
of ours, but he, like those that
preceded him, will ever be held ;
in grateful remembrance.

Boys Appreciate The
Cigarettes Sent Them
The following two letters were
received by the local American
Legion post from two O’Neill boys
who are in the service and who
had received their Christmas car
ton of cigarettes that were sent
by the Legion Post, from the
money donated by our citizens
in the glass bottles that were in
different business establishments
the past four or five months. The
letters show that the boys really
appreciate their cigarettes.

Dear Friends: I received your
very welcome carton of Chester
fields yesterday and I must say
they will come in very handy. I
want to commend your organiza

American Legion for what they
I hope these few words find all
the home people well, and tell
them all Hello for me.
I am somewhere in the Aleu
tians Islands, but can’t tell you
which one. I have lots to tell
when I return and I hope it won’t
be too long, until we are all back
home with you all again.
Keep the old home town on
top of the list and I know you
will, so again I thank every
member of the American Legion
for the cigarettes and also the
good work they are doing.
I will close these few lines by
wishing you all a Very Merry

November 6, 1943.
Dear Friends: I received your
most welcome Christmas gift,
which is a carton of cigarettes.
I do think that the folks back
home can’t send anything to us
boys over here any better than
cigarettes. I really appreciate
them and thank you folks for
thinking of me.
Just a word to let you know
that I am well and happy, and I
think the rest of the boys who
are here with me would say the
same. Uncle Sam is doing the
best for all us boys. I like it
here fine, although I’m just like
the zest of the boys, would sure
like to get back to good old
O’Neill for a while. But, we all
have a job to do first. And I’m
sure with all the folks on the
home front helping us boys we
will all be home a lot sooner.
I’m signing this off with Merry
Christmas and a Very Happy

A Worth WTiile Donation
To A Worthy Cause
O’Neill is fortunate in having
two of the finest school systems
in the state, the O'Neill Public
School and St. Mary’s Academy.
These fine schools make this city
a splendid educational center for
this part of Nebraska.
The public school is supported
by the taxpayers of O'Neill. St.
Mary’s Academy has functioned
for many years without a cent of
tax funds. Were it not for the
Academy, the tax burden for
school purposes in O’Neill would
be almost doubled. Larger build
ings would be needed, additional
teachers would be required and
the entire plant would, of neces
sity, be much larger and would
require a greater amount of tax
A group of appreciative citizens
each year make a contribution to
St. Mary’s Academy, which fund
is used to purchase coal. Anyone
wishing to join in this donation
will see members of the coal fund
committee who are making a can
vass to raise the necessary funds.
St. Mary’s Cardinals
Win Last Game
St Mary’s Cardinals got into
motion again as they rolled over
Lynch 48 to 14. Clark scored
the first points in the first play
after the kick-off. Two plays
later, Kelly scored on an end run.
Again in the first half Kelly
scored. About two minutes be
fort the half Campbell went 55
yards to scort. That ran the
score at the half to 28 to 6.
As the second halp opened the
Cards took possession of the ball
and turned on the power. Two
runs put the ball on the Lynch
30 yard line. A pass to Golden
went to the Lynch 1-yard line.
On the next play Clark scored on
a plunge. From then on Lynch
couldn’t match St. Mary’s power.
Kelly and DeBacker each scored,
running the total to 48, while
Lynch scored to make the final
score 48 to 14.
Hhis was the last game of the
season for the Cardinals, who
started slow and finished in good
stride. It was the last game the
steller end, Jim Early, will play
for St. Mary’s. Next year, we
look forward to a good season,
as every one of the letter men
but Jim will return.

Unionists continue to demand
more pay, the alibi being “in

increases in living costs there are
can be traced to increased costs
of production, mostly accounted
for in the higher wages. Many
citizens are making the sacrifices
the times call for with no thought
cf a "strike” for increased income
and are doing very well at it.
A Kansas paper gives this out
as a true story:
An Atchison woman will sue
for divorce. She will allege terri
ble, terrible cruelty. The first time
she consulted her attorney he ask
ed: “Do you think your husband
will fight the case?*’
And she returned t h u s 1 y:

land with a lot to complain about,
real and fancied—a people of free
dom’s heritage unreconciled to life
under the restrictions of a mul

and ruin abroad in the world. The
silent suffering in desolated homes

“What shall we say of sorrow’s
Of hunger and denial,
Of tears and lonliness and loss,
Of long and bitter trial?
Oh, in the darkness have not we
Seen new, resplendent stars?
Have we not learned some song
Within our prison bars?”
Amid the thorns along life’s
pathway there has been abundant
bloom of roses. The song of birds,
the color and life and human con
tacts assuage the harsher hours
of life. A little boy was crying
with unrestrained abandon as a
motherly matron in passing his
home asked him what was the
matter. “I lost my tin whistle.”
The boy had life, health, home,
parents to be happy over, but he
forgot all these in his grief over
the loss of a penny whistle. The
loss of a tin whistle often over
shadows great values in our lives.
“That fields have yielded ample
Of fruit and wheat and corn,
That nights of restful blessedness
Have followed each new morn;
That flowers have blossomed by
That thread our working days,
That love has filled us with de

The human touch, the art and
music, the material things, the
fruit and wheat and corn—is that
all Our Thanksgiving means?
“Not only for the earth’s rich gifts,
Strewn thick along our way,
Her looks of constant loveliness,
We thank our God today;
But for the spirit’s subtle growth,

the drive for the collection of
discarded clothing and rags, said:
“The need for clothing to aid in

period to get enough discarded
clothing to do the job.
