Watchful Waiting Profits the
Homesteader Who Dupes
Greenblatt and Mudd.
An eighty-mile drive through the
sand hills with loaded guns and no
game is the record of B. R. Green
blatt, jeweler of Omaha, and J. T.
Mudd, a jeweler of Bassett, Neb.
Strange words, seldom heard in po
lite society, were uttered by these two
gentlemen. Greenblatt was in Bas
sett calling on Mr. Mudd. Mudd
wanted to take him hunting, so he
oiled up the car. About that time a
homesteader, standing on the street
corner watching to catch a ride out to
his homestead, promised to show
these fellows lots of game if they
would drive out to the ranch.
When they had driven fifteen miles
the homesteader broke the news
gently that he lived twenty-three
miles farther on, or a total of thirty
eight miles from Bassett.
"We're in for it and have to go
through with it," said Greenblatt.
So they chugged on and on over
the hills. The homesteader promised
to get dinner for the party, but when
they arrived he was out of coffee, out
of bread and out of other necessities.
He did give them a few gallons of
gasoline, however, and they started
When dark overtook them their
gasoline gave out. They pushed the
car into the lane of a ranch house and
asked the farmer for gasoline. He
had no car, but hitched up and drove
three mites to borrow gasoline of a
The hungry hunters took charge of
the kitchen while the farmer was in
search of gasoline. They started a
fire in the stove. They found a dish
pan full of eggs, and well, the dish
pan was not full when they left.
They chugged back into Bassett
at 11 o'clock that night, and the near
est they came to hunting on the trip
was when they saw two prairie chick
"They were so wild one could
scarcely get near enough to see
them with a field glass," said Mr.

tising schemes. The concern is capi
talized at $20,000.
The name of the Fanners' State
Bank of Florence has been changed
to the State Bank of Florence, ac

Thieves Slug Victim
After They Rob Him
James Smith of Sioux City, stop
ping at the Millard hotel, was held up
and robbed of $25 at Seventeenth and
California by two negroes. The
highwaymen, after securing his mon
ey, beat him over the head with their
revolvers. He was brought to head
quarters by S. Fitipatrick, 314 South
Fourteenth street.
