Better Sires Better Stock
A "h tier sires better stock" cam
paign is being conducted by the farm
bureaus' of forty Nebraska counties
in an effort to improve the quality
of Mock kept on general farms. Many
farmers reali.-.e that it pays to use
ie thing but pure bred sires. It costs
i. 'i more to feed an animal of ood
1 rreiing than it does a scrub and the
T'-u'.-s are much more gratifying.
T:ie use of purebred sires to produce
animal.-? for the feed lot is of much
importance, as most feeders realize.
To encourage the use of better sires,
firm bureaus award an emblem to

Secretary W. H. Osborne of State
Board cf Assessment Suggests
Needed Changes.
Secretary W. H. Osborne of the
state board of taxation and equaliza
tion says of needed legi.-lation:
"One of the big jobs ahead of the
legislature that convenes in January
will be the amending and altering
present revenue laws to meet new
conditions brought about by the new
constitution. For instance proposal
No. of the new constitution
amends Section .". Article 10 of the
old constitution and pi ices the coun
ty tax limitation at SO cents on the
one hundred dollar actual valuation.
The limitation under the old consti
tution being Sl.r.o n the assessed or
one 1; ft li value, it will he seen that
.he members cf the constitution had
in mind, that while they did not say
that property should be assessed at
its actual value, instead of one fifth
r? under the present law. ihat they
have provided the means by which
the legislature will be compelled to
hange the old method of assessing
"In the event that the legislature
enacts a law placing it at its actual
value it will be helpful to those coun
ties, who under the present' limita
tions are unable to support their
county government, as they will be
able to raise Z0 cents instead of only
30 under the present law. This will
necessitate the changinf of practi
cally every section of the revenue
laws in this respect.
"Proposal No. 2ti amends Section 1.
Article 9 and provides a uniform and
a proportional tax on tagible pro
perty and franchises; and permits
t he classification of other property.
at:d permits taxes other than proper
ty taxes.
"This will enable the legislature
to enact a state income tax law if
they desire, and provide for a separate
rate of taxation for different clas
sifications of property. For instance
in Minnesota, property is classified
and assessed at the following rates:
"Fifty per cent of full value for
iron ore whether mined or uu-mined.
"Twenty-five per cent for house
goods nnd furniture; 1-3 per cent
on live stock, agricultural products,
stocks of merchandise, manufac
tured articles and unplatted real es
tate, and 40 per cent on all remain
ing property.
"Money and credits are separately
assessed at their full value and a flat
rate of :'. milks is applied for taxa
ation. "Theoretically, it is argued that
a lower rate on such property as
monies, credits and other intangi
bles, will have a tendency to bring It
forth and share in the burdens of
taxation, whereas if it is taxed ac
cording to value, and at the same
rate as other property, a large pro
portion will never reach the tax
"The county assessors have never
been able to obtain a very large
amount of this class of property on
the tax rolls, for the reason that the
legislatures have never eriven them

the banks for verification. It was
assumed that the legislature would
give added powers in this respect
to the tax commissioner, and with a
lower rate and added powers and ef
fort, it will compel the holders of
this class of property to list it. The
new constitution also provides an ex
emption of $200 for household

Our old and highly esteemed
fiiend, Theodore Heim, has been re
ceiving the congratulations of his
many friends in the community this
week, as on last Tuesday. November
1'. 1120. he passed his !(th milestone.
It might be difficult to realize that
Mr. Heim had really attained this
grand old age were he not so alert
mentally and able to account for ev
i ry year of his past life with re
markable clearness of memory.
Hiss children were all present upon
this occasion and the birthday dinner
was given the Sunday before at the
homo of his son-in-law and daugh
ter. Mr. and Irs. John C. Spangler
which is the old farm home of Mr.
Heim and was their first home in Ne
braska. The birthday cake was bak
ed by his daughter. Mrs. John Group.
In the afternoon, the grandchildren
of this vicinity and all who were
able to be present, came in to add
their congratulations, and ice cream
and cake were served. During the
afternoon, the family passed the
time very pleasantly in reminisces
and conversation and sang several
selections in chorus, after which Mr.
Helm stepped out and in his own
way thanked his children and family
for their love and devotion as ex
pressed by this occasion and said
words could not tell how greatly he
appreciated it and that his heart
was full of gratitude. His remarks
were received with cheers by The
family and aliogelher it was a de
lightful time and will even remain
a beautiful memory to them all.
Theodore Heim was born in the
southern part of Germany. Novem
ber 9. 1S30. near the imperial city of
the Hohenzollerus and lived there un
til he was tif. years of age when he
left his native land and embarked
for America. June 2. ISr.S. and after
a lengthy voyage, he landed in New
York. July 27. of the same year.
Mr. Heim settled in "Wisconsin in
1R5?.. on August tith. at Summit, in
Waukesha county, where he engaged
in farming. On December 4. l.rG.
he was married to Miss Lavina Regu
la at Watertown. Wisconsin. Mrs
Heim was born in Rome. N. Y.. July
J.;. In 1ST;!, they sold out ir.
Wisconsin and came to Nebraska,
crossing the Missouri river on the
ferry at Plattsmouth. with their team
and family. Mrs. Heim's sister, Mrs.
Frank Stander and family had al
rtady settled in this vicinity on the
old Stander place south of town and
on June 16. 1871. they arrived at
that place.
Mr. Heim then purchased the old
farm southeast of town where they
resided until 1S3. when they pur
chased a comfortable home in Louis
ville and retired from active farm
life to enjoy the fruits of their year.,
of usefulness and industry. The
celebrated their golden wedding an
niversary on December 4. 190 6. On
January 17, 191S. Mrs. Heim passed
from the activities of this life at the
age of SI years, 0 months and 11
days, greatly honored by all and
deeply mourned by her family and
large circle of friends.
Following the birthday dinner for
Mr. Heim. his daughter, Mrs. Group,
entertained a number of relatives and
old friends of her sisters on Monday
afternoon at her home and the time
passed swiftlv in conversation while
a delicious luncheon was served con
sisting of sandwiches cake and cof
fee. Since the death of his companion.
Mr. Heim continues to reside in their
old home and it would be a joy to
any housekeeper to see how neatly
things are kept with a place for ev
erything and everything in its place,
as Mr. Heim carries into his house
keeping the same methods that char
acterized his labors, wherever en
gaged and which helped greatly to
make his life a success.
Mr. Heim is hale and hearty and
his figure is erect and commanding.
He is a sturdy type of manhood and
exemplifies that right living makes
for a long and happy life. He and
his wife passed through the battles
of the pioneers and did their part
nobly in transforming a barren coun
try into a land of happy homes and
They reared a family of eight chil
dren, six daughters and two sons.
They are. Mrs. Elizabeth Foe, of Red
Cloud; Mrs. Jennie Young of Hast
ings; Mrs. H. J. Wehrly, of Denver;
Mrs. John Group and Mrs. J. C.
Spangler. of Louisville; Mrs. Hugh
Seiver, of El Reno. Oklahoma; Frank
Heim of Naples. S. D.. and Charles
Heim of Louisville. It was ever the
care and anxiety of the parents that
the children might grow into useful
members of society and thev both
lived to see them meeting their full
share of life's responsibilities and
become honored citizens, successful
and happy in their own homes. He
has 34 grandchildren and 22 great
Since his early manhood Mr. Heim
has been a Jeffersonian democrat.
For sixty-six years he boasts that he
has never quavered in his support of
the democratic ticket. hen elec
tion day came around he would walk
up to the polls and vote a straight
democratic ticket. This year, how
ever, he says he voted for Harding
and the old gentleman's eyes snapped
when he said: "I saw u good deal of

came to America for -;;n;e reason
that thousands of ether European
