Wild Tales of
Early Days Told
Early Settlements Keport Many Wild
Stones of Sand Storms, Weather
and Other Adventures.
Sand storms and cyclones, dry
weather and poverty, were some of
the trials besetting Nebraska pioneers
That these people were not discour
aped may have been partly due tc
their sense of humor. Samples of this
humor have been found by research
workers of the Federal Writers j re
ject, WPA, in the form of tall tales
printed in early-day newspapers.
A Chadron paper, commenting on a
sand storm that swept the town ir.
1900,' said that at least the storm
had one advantage. All the town
carpenters had to do was place a board
lengthwise in the gale and In just a
few moments it would be sandpaper
ed to the finest surfale.
In writing of a cyclone out west
one paper said it turned a well in
side out, a celler upside down, moved
a township line, blow all the stoves
out of a whisky barrel and left the
bunghole', changed the day of the
week, blew a mortgage off a farm
blew all the cracks out of a fence and
knocked the wind out of a populist
The Fremont Herald reported that
a certain farmer had a large crib
filled with ear corn. There was i
knot-hole in the south end of the crib
When the cyclone struck the crib,
said the man, the suction was so great
that cob after cob was sucked through
the knot-hole, leaving him a crib oi
About the same time, a Willsonville
Furnas county, paper said that it wa;
so dry down there that the farmers
had to soak their hogs to make then
hold swill, that the creek bottom was
all warped out of shape and wouk
have to be sprinkled, and Ironed- .
In 1893 a Gering citizen felt fell
called upon to praise the richness oi
Mitchell valley.. lie had purchased
he said, an . ordinary hog, with nc
promise of extraordinary growth. He
drove the hog into Mitchell vcllej
to feed. But the hog got so fat that
when the man tried to take it out oi
the valley to market, it got stuck ir.
the. pass. He had q wajt till the rivei
froze, so he coul4 skid the animal
down to town on the ice.
Even the livestock, it seems, grow
patient in Nebraska. According tc
one newspaper account in 1897, a mar
in Dodge county went into his cow
stable one. night, and mixed up tht
animal a nice mash in a. box full of
sawdust instead of bran. The cow,
really supposing that hard times had
come and ihey.yveralLgoing to econ
omize, meekly ate' her eupper, anc
the man never discovered his mistake
until next morning when the cow. let
l down a half gallon of. turpentine, s
quart of shoe pegs and bundle of
