Sherman County Complains ot
Excessive Taxation Last
War and Wants Relief.
From Lincoln Dally News.
Because of a county clerk’s unau
thorized action in levying higher real
estate taxes than the state board of
equalization called for, a request from
Sherman county will come before that
Itody during the present week to have
the valuation of lands cut down for
this year. County Clerk C. F. Beus
hausen, successor to the official who
listed the higher tax, and County At
torney J. S. Pedler were here from
Loup City this morning and called at
the state house in relation to the mat
ter, but as the board was not in ses
sion they could not obtain a hearing.
Two years ago the state equalization
body raised lands in Sherman county
10 per cent. Instead of complying
with that order. G. H. Gibson, the
county clerk then serving, added one
half mill to the state levy and made
no change in the real estate assess
ment. He did this, presumably, be
cause his books were made up and he
did not wish to take the trouble of
making a new set. I n 1905, the state
board again voted 10 per cent increase
on Sherman county lands. Gibson
thought the time had come to even
up for the year before. Accordingly,
he raised the valuations 20 per cent,
and the property owners paid taxes
on that basis in 1905.
Owing to this excessive assessment,
the taxpayers and county officials feel
that the state board should be easy
upon Sherman county this year.
There is some question, however,
whether they should appeal to the
board for relief or go to the legisla
ture with a bill authorizing the
amount overpaid to be refunded.

Take butter to Sleeth for
The live stock department at the
State Fair this year is already assum
ing vast proportions. It has been
necessary for the management to
build three more permanent swine
barns, each containing thirty-eight
pens, which increases the capacity so
that about 1500 head can now be ex
hibited, and there have been requests
for 250 additional pens filed with the
I superintendent.
Last Sunday evening the service at
the Presbyterian church was more
especially for the young ladies and
they were present in large numbers
to hear the pastor discuss “The Ideal
Daughter.” Next Sunday evening
the young men come in for their
share of attention. The topic is
, “The Ideal Young Man.” The young
men are cordially invited.
Wiggle Creek 11, Arcadia 10
The Wiggle Creek and Arcadia base
bail teams took another crack at each
other on the Loup City diamond last
Friday afternoon. Pitcher Gael for
Wiggle Creek could not take part in
the game and Holmes and Curry did
honors in the box for Wiggle Creek
and Mead for Arcadia. The .game
was fast and furious and it took thir
teen innings to decide who were the
victors. The Arcadians mauled Pitch
er Holmes for five runs in the first
inning, and Cooley, Parle Hounds and
the irrepressible Arcadians split the
atmosphere with howls of delight. In
the second half of the first, Wiggle
Creek scored two runs, and from the
first the grand stand and bleecliers
applauded or roasted their favorites
in the most approved methods. At
the close of the ninth inning, the
score stood 9 to 9, and not nnfcil the
thirteenth inning could the deciding
run be scored. The game was won
for Wiggle Creek by a long throw by
McFaaden from right field to home
plate, putting out the third man and
winning the hardest fought game of
the season. The sensational features
of the contest were Lewin’s heavy
batting for Arcadia, Marvel’s fast
playing at second and good work with
the stick for Wiggle Creek. Johnson’s
catch of a long fly in center field at a
critical point in the game, and Hal
ler's home run. Take it all in all, it
was a game to delight base ball fans,
and all had their money’s worth.
Umpire. Tom Eaton was highly com
mended by the unprejudiced. The
only serious objections we heard to
his uniformly good judgment was call
ing Lewin safe at home for Arcadia,
when the grand stand thought he
was out, and some difference of opin
ion as to whether Haller's long liner
in left field was a fair or foul ball.
Cooley went home sadder and perhaps
poorer. One cruel roaster even sug
gested that he was a Nancy that
might wash dishes or write poetry,
but couldn't play ball.
After the Arcadia game, the Prairie
Dogs and Wiggle Creek boys played
one inning, which resulted in favor
of the first named.
We enjoy the National game and
hope the boys will come again.
The Beatrice Creamery Co.'s Square
Deal Grading Rule.
Since the inauguration of the hand
separator system the tendency of the
cream patron has been to ’ deliver
cream when it best suited his conven
ience. lie has also neglected giving
the same proper care. Consequently
the general quality or standard of
cream has been lowered. At the same
time the patron ox pec ted the cream
ery company to pay the top price and
seemingly did not realize that good
cream wassesential to make good but
ter and that*>oor butter meant lower
prices for butter fat or a loss to the
coeamery man. From the fact that
infrequency of delivery and thincream
are the principal causes for poor qual
ity. we decided on January 1. loot;, to
grade cream based on the following
No. 1 cream would consist of cream
that was delivered twice each week in
good condition and testing 30 percent
or over.
No. 2 cream would consist of cream
that was delivered less frequently or
testing less than 30 per cent.
A differential of three cents was paid
between No. 1 and No. 2. Since the
adoption of this plan we have received
numerous letters from patrons throug
out our territory protesting against
the rules-that the same were working
an injustice, claiming that when they
churned a part of their week’s cream
and delivered the balance in good con
dition they were forced to take second
grade prices: others claimed they
would deliver a part of their week’s
cream at one town, ehe balance to an
other. and beeause our records did not
show that both deliveries were made
to the same agent they were forced
to accept second-grade price.
Realizing that ill feeling and dissat
isfaction have never built up an in
dustry. and knowing that the farmers
as a class are always ready to meet a
fair proposition half way and will do
their part if approached in the right
manner, we have decided, beginning
July 15. l'.KXi, that we would grade all
cream delivered at our stations on the
meritsof its quality instead of any ar
bitrary rules, and this means that the
Beatrice Creamery Company has confi
dence in the cream patrons of their
territory to do the right thing when
properly appealed to, and would ask
the attention of all cream producers
to a few simple rules:
1. See that the separater, pails, cans
and all milk utensils are thoroughly
washed and scalded before using.
2. Skim the milk ds soon as possible
after milking.
3. Keep the cream screw set tn de
liver a thick cream and the separater
run at the proper speed which will
insure a uniform test.
4. Cool the cream immediately ufter
separating, to remove the animal heat
and do not mix warm cream with cold.
5. Keep the cream pail or can in
cold water and when delivering to the
station cover the same with a blanket.
This will prevent heating the cream
in summer or freezing in winter.
Last, deliver often.
In summing this all up: What we
want is good cream and plenty of it:
and you will always find us ready to
do the right thing with the right price.
