emy six-manners Tuesday night,

Antelope Named for
Fleet Animals
County Christened by
Columbus Man
Antelope county in northeast
Nebraska, Holt’s neighbor on the
southeast, obviously was named
for the fleetfooted animal which
used to be found in Nebraska in
great numbers. There’s an inter
esting yarn, though, gs to just
why it was so named.
The name was given by Le
ander Gerrard of Columbus, who
served in the state senate in 1871.
In the summer of 1867 or 1868,
so the story goes, Mr. Gerrard,
who was active in promoting the
settlement of northeast Nebraska,
was in the area occupied by the
county with a group of homeseek
ing tourists. They ran low on
food, but Mr. Gerrad came to
the rescue by shooting a fine an
telope. The circumstances oc
curred to him when he was pre
paring the bill for the organiza
tion of te county, and he applied
the name, “Antelope.”
Another, and more exciting
version of the story has it that
Mr. Gerrard was in pursuit of
Indians who had sio’en some
livestock around Columbus
when he shot the antelope.
A number of factors contrib
uted to retard the early settle
ment of Antelope county. One
was the conflict between the
county commissioners and the
B & M railroad over taxes on,
the lands in the county granted
+he railroad in lieu of lands along
the road’s right-of-way which
earlier had been granted to the
Union Pacific. Another was the
grasshopper visitations of 1874
’76 which had a serious effect on
most of the state.
The earliest town of signif
icance, and the first county seat,
was Oakdale, laid out in 1872. A
small, one-story frame courthouse
was built in 1873 at a cost of
$650. It burned in 1875, and was
not replaced because of the desire
of some of the citizens to remove
the county seat to Neligh.
Neligh was founded in 1873 on.
land that was purchased from the
Chicago and North Western rail
road the year before by John D.
Neligh. The town grew rapidly
and for a time was a favorite
hangout for cowboys and such no
torious characters as Kid Wade
and Doc Middleton. An important
factor in the growth of Neligh was
the location of the U. S. land of
; fice for the region there. Like
| wise, the early mill was a draw
ing card for business. The cul
tural life of the new town was
greatly enriched when the Con
gregationalists established Gates
college therp, a flourishing insti
tution in the eighties and nine
As a result of this growth, Ne
ligh was victorious in the long
contest with Oakdale over the
county seat, and after five bit
terly-contested county seat elec
tions, the seat of government fi
nally was removed in 1883.
A good sketch of Antelope
county by Mrs. R. J. Hering will
be found in “Who’s Who in Ne
braska.” A. .T. Leach, “Earlv Day
Stories.” published in Norfolk in
1916. also is of value, as is the
“History of Antelope countv,”
published in 1909. An old sketch
will be found in A. T. Andreas,
“Illustrated History of Nebraska ”
Chicago, 1882.
State Losing Alfalfa
Seed Market—Report
A four to five-million-dollar
annual alfalfa seed market is
rapidly slipping away from Ne
braska farmers, according to the
Iffebraska seed advisory council.
At a recent meeting of the
council and University of Ne
braska college of' agriculture of
ficials, the general opinion was
that west coast producers are
already geared to supply the na
tion’s needs of alfalfa seed. This,
they say, will mean Nebraska
seed will be thrown into the sur

prices instead of continuing to
be in high demand as in the

While little can be done to cor

men expressed the opinion that
more general use of proven pro

to even out production of high
er quality seed.
Planned production of con
sistent annual acreage, plus the
use of chemicals for insect con
trol, were suggested as absolute
ly necessary for good seed pro

of honey bees, and providing
better facilities for natural pol
