Union Stock Yards, South Omaha,
Nebr., September 12, 1916.—The week
opened with the largest cattle run so
far this year. A total of 540 loads or
about 13,500 head, showed up. Mon
day’s liberal supply included but a
very few corn-fed steers, and It looked
as if dressed beef men needed a few
natives, and they paid about steady
prices for the desirable offerings, al
though the trade was rather slow and
uncertain on the short fed and grassy
stuff that came in direct competition
with the Western rangers. Some right
good yearlings sold at $10.25, and
other sales looked steady with the
close of last week. There were be
tween forty and fifty loads of cows
and heifers on Monday’s markeL

Receipts of hogs for Monday were
larger than for any one day of la3t
week, arrivals being estimated at sev
enty-one cars or 4.800 head. Owing to
the limited shipping orders and a real
heavy run of hogs at Chicago, another
break was in order for Monday’s hog
market. What hogs order buyers
bought they paid prices that were
around 10c lower than last week.
Packers also bought their hogs at
prices that were at least a dime lower
and In some cases 15c off. Bulk of the
killer hogs brought *10.25@10.40,
while both shippers and packers paid
as high as *10.70 for a good kind of
mixed hogs.
Sheep and lamb reecipts got back
to something like normal for Monday,
arrivals counting out 122 cars or in
the neighborhood of 33,000 head. A
great deal of the offerings were of
feeder class, and while killing stuff
was fairly plentiful, packers who
wanted lambs badly took hold readily,
and most of the fat grades changed
bands in the first couple of hours.

Route two was visited by a heavy
rain Saturday night. This time the
entire route was covered. It was
very heavy from John Sheehan's in a
northeasterly direction past the Wm.
Hawk school house. The wind tore
Mr. Hawk’s windmill down and broke
it to pieces, pulled up the anchor
posts and also blew the dining room
door open of his home and threw
the table across the room. Their
little boy fell down cellar but fortun
ately he was not hurt. The Brown
creek was out of its banks. From
one to two inches of rain fell in less
thn fifteen minutes. At Wm. Miller’s
place the wind blew his barn to pieces
also a new cattle shed, a corn crib and
his wheat stacks, hay stacks and al
falfa stacks were cut in two. At the
Henry Obermiller place it blew down
two granaries with a good many
bushels of oats. His chicken coon
and windmill were also wrecked. It
also blew the chimney off his house.
Henry and wife were in Ravenna at
this time. At the Fritz Bichel home
it took the wheel off from his mill
and picked the mill up and driving
it clear through the roof of the big
barn. High board fences were blown
in all directions. All alfalfa, wheat
and hay stacks were cut from one
third to two-thirds in two. The corn
fields in the distance look like hail
had been heavy. The cyelonek wind
twisted the com in every direction
leaving only a few leaves on the
the stalks. The storm took a j
northeasterly course straight for
Loup City but had spent itself most
ly before reaching that place. The
cyclone took the same track that the
one did a few years ago that did so
much damage for Mr. Bichel. Others
that had damage did to them during
last Saturday night's twister were, j
Wm. Behrens. Ed. Obermiller, Wm. J
Henderson, Ray McFadden, John \
Peterson. Tons upon tons of hay j

Thieves were reported sneaking

urday night. They had a Ford car
and while near the Ernest Paddock
farm, they got stuck in a mud hole
and went to his barn and helped them
selves to a team to 4mII them out bur
failed, so they left the harness in the
car and took the horses and skipp 'd
off. With help. Ernest pushed the
car on his premises until he could
locate the whereabouts of his horses
which were good ones. The Ford car
was a new one and was from Ord and
if it had not of been for the rain the
thief would perhaps went on with the
car, but he found out he couldn't make
his getaway and thinking that walk
ing was too cheap, helped himself to
the horse and away he went. Later
reports are that the car belonged to
a land agent of Ord and was stolen on
last Friday night by this unknown
party. Mr. Paddock notified the
North Loup sheriff and the owner of
the car came in to North Loup and
bad Mr. Paddock drive the car to
town. Orin Conway, who makes his
home with Paddock started out Sun
day with Frank Trump and tracked
the horse that was taken and found it
in a pasture north of North Loup. It
is supposed that the would-be robber
took the motor-for Ord. A horse
blanket taken from Ed. Stillman’s was
used for this someone to ride 011.
