missed. Twenty years ago James Ellison and his
wife were living at Curtis. Neb. Shortly

Somethlnir About the Personnel of a
l.lve Wire Concern of South
A history or mention of South Omaha,
Neb., of Its packing- houses, its stock
yards, Its various enterprises, would not
be complete without notice of the Na
tional Live Stock Commission company.
This company, whose card appears upon
another rKp. while young; at South Omaha,
Is old at the other markets and the "lead
ers." Founded In Chicago In January, 1SSS,
by Thomas Kelly, later Joined by Ids
brother, Charles Kelly, the business has
grown stop by step, day by day, year by
year, until today their business at the six
lending- markets amounts to over VAOOO.OOO
per annum, and during its existence of
twenty-five years IVW.OoO.OOO, a fitting;
tribute and testimonial to Its founders, to
their business enterprise and reliability.
It has ever betn the policy of this com
pany to have only the very best men In
each and every department, and 2&0 trained,
experienced and ever ready employes Is
the .result. In Noveniner, 1906, this com
pany succeeded to the business of Greer,
Mills &N.'o., and two months later fol
lowed the merger of tho American Commis
sion company at South Omaha. By trict
attention to the requirements of Its many,
ninny customers, their advance has been
of tho steady and substantial kind that
knows no halt, and a glimpse of the per
sonnel of the South Omaha "boys" Is a sat
isfactory proof of the foregoing.
Cattle What salesman is better known
than E. W. Cahow, (whose first name Is
Kdi. His record as a Bteer salesman Is one
of which any one might be proud. Ability,
This answers why his friends and custom
ers aro legion. T. A. Tlllotson, (better
known as Tiieo.), sells the cows. From
South Omaha to the Big Horn basin,
Wyoming, his nanio is upon the lips of
many when cars are ordered for loading.
These two, with the able assistance of
Dell Johnson, compose a trio In th cattli
yards that render the service and are sec
ond to none.
The feeder buying department of this
company Is one which deserves special at
tention. C. K. Rogers, who has been among
cattle ever since he could walk, Is in
charge, and the time Is yet to come for
tlie first word of complaint. The buying
of feeders Is exacting to the highest de
gree and requires a keen knowledge ac
quired only by years of experience. Mr.
Rogers Is know n to possess every requisite
for giving the very beet service and satis
faction. Hogs In tho hog department we find this
progressive company maintaining two divi
sions, having a different salesman for
each, (he only firm at the yards employing
tills up-to-date method. Of C. 8. (Carl)
Hihbard and K. C. (Boh) Martin, the sales
men, too much cannot be said, as they are
known throughout the hog producing dis
trict, and the fact that their company for
a long time past has handled more hogs
than any othei, attest to tlie efficiency of
the "National" system and Its salesman
ship. Their right hand "bowers" are Frank
Mitchell and William Iw II. upon whom
much depends in feeding, filling and weigh
ing. Khcep fS. J. Kyle, better known as "Kid"
Kyle, linked his fortunes with th "Na
tional" in order to take charge .,f 11.,.
sheep department. To see him handling a
arove or sheep upon sale Is to then and
there decide definitely your commission
company of the future. It is no exaggera
tion to say the "Kid" has muswered hi
profession In all its details, and has an
ablo assistant in William Howard.
Office Clark Howard, known BUUlily nf
"Mose," is always on hand with a hearty
welcome for every visKor and customer.
For over forty years he has been a resident
of Nebraska, through all ihe trials of fron
tier life, and in the "Natjtinal'a" offjee
many a, doing of thoso duys has been re
hearsed by old time cattlemen and their
sons, now In the same line of business
There is a charm In old comradeship that
I tn sera while there Is life, and. "Muse." It
good for a long time' to come.
Tho local office Is In charge of wiltiam
H. Gould, Jr., who has had years of ex
perience In this line, and with Kd P. Haker
as cashier and Harry Green as assistant,
the account sales are turned out with a
tapidlty and accuracy that Is pleasing (to
say the least)' to shippers.
It Is the perect system of this company,
the paid in capital of J.'KXt.oon, their motto
of Personal Attention, "Good Sale" and
Quick Returns that insures a steady and
Increasing popularity and proves that merit
This company gladly furnishes reliable
market information to every stockman upon
application, and prospective shippers will
luidotkbtoclly do well to avail themselves of
the opportunity of securing same bvtotm
loading for market.
