Nothing Served at Swank Banquets
Compares to Grassfed Beef at Campfire
LINCOLN—On December 13 it
was noted in this department that
a Nebraska heifer had been
taken to Tennessee to grace a
herd of Herefords in the Great
Smokies. The heifer was exhibit
ed at the Denver, Colo., stock
show by Wil
ford Scott, of
Dawes county,
and sold, as I
recall, for $25,
000, or some
such fabulous
sum. Incidental
ly it was observ
ed that some
times such sales
were effected
as a trade with
no money
Romain* changing hands.
Saunders The item
herein at that
time came to the attention of
someone connected with the Ne
braska Hereford Breeders’ asocia
tion. Mr. Warner, of Central City,
an official of the association, did
not approve of the impression he
feared would result from what
“Prairieland Talk” had to say a
bout trades at these big sales. He
has written to me to assure all
that Mr. Scott was paid the cash
for his heifer.
To oldtimers who came up on
the open range when a cow
brought $15 they will but won
der what a buy with 25 thou
sand grand in his jeans wants
with a heifer.
The aim of breeder associa
tions is the improvement of herds
and some pretty aristocratic crit
ters have been developed. But at
that, as I view it, no meat animal
is worth such fancy prices. More
over, when a cut of beef comes
from the butcher’s block how do
you tell whether it was cut from
a purebred, a grade or a scrub
The boys who rode the cow
trails and roasted over the camp
fire a cut from a wild steer
that never saw an ear of com
could tell you there is nothing
served at the swank banquet
boards to compare to a cut from
a grassfed beef roasted at the
evening campfire.

Lincoln is favored—or pestered,
which ever way you feel about
it—with highbrows for the en
lightenment of benighted prairie
land dwellers. A few imported
world visionaries were on the
speakers’ platform a week or 2
ago at what was called a confer
ence on world affairs, the intel
lectual excrement from the classic
halls of our university. It appears
from what these gentlemen blew
off. their tribe should be the ones
now wallowing in the mud and
snow over in Korea. It’s amazing
what some of those connected
with a setup that has been beating
the air and accomplishing noth
ing but living off of the taxpay
ers get off at these highbrow
gatherings about “what ought to
be done.” It is amazing, too. that
the real purpose of the commu
nist movement is understood by
so few.

Mx. Truman seems io be hold
ing his fire until pretty sure
who will be the republican
candidate. Of various repub
lican hopefuls. Senator Taft is
regarded as the best informed
for the white house job, but if
it is to be a military man. let
it be MacArlhur.

“We are informed,” said the At
kinson Graphic one week in Jan
uary. 1905, "that Lazelle Sturde
vant’s salary at the university has
been increased $100.” And adds:
“This is evidence of the acknow
ledgement of the worth of Lazelle
and we hope to hear in the near
future of his going still higher.”
The Sturdevant families, that of
the doctor and that of B. E., were
among the prominent ones of ear
ly Atkinson history. About the
time the Graphic made the fore
going mention, the Inman News
told of Cord Smith, of Chambers
precinct, selling his Holt county
land for $15 an acre and buying
land 3 miles east of Sioux City
at $70 an acre, iln the homestead
days. Cord hauled a load of hay
now and then from his grass em
pire 5 miles out to O’Neill livery
barns and got $1.50 a load. That
was the price of a year’s sub
scription to The Frontier.

A firebrand of a preacher has
been pointing a finger of warning
at vast crowds in sinful Washing
ton, D.C. Maybe Evangelist Billy
Graham, armed with the sword of
the Spirit, will accomplish the
renovation of the nation’s capital
city, what neither politicians,
statesmen nor clergy with their
round of formality that has gone
stale can ever do. Pointing a fin
ger at the crowds before him, a
mong which is a sprinkling of
members of congress, this is shot
at them: “I am not calling for a
moral revival, it won’t last. What
we want is moral regeneration,
the kind Christ meant when He
said to Nicodemus, “Ye must be
born again.” That sounded like
nonsense to Nicodemus as it
probably did to many in that
Washington crowd, nevertheless
human emotions are awakened
to spiritual life under such min
istry and this great preacher has
been reaping a harvest of repent
ant sinners under the shadow of
the white house.

Groundhog or no groundhog,
full 6 weeks must come and go
before prairieland awakens again
with the budding rose, the morn

Maybe John Sullivan and Bill

pointment of a republican lawyer
from up in New York to come to
Washington to take over the fed
eral clean-up job?
