nearly 30 head of horses were knocked down.
It was one of the biggest public sale gatherings in this part of the country in recent
years. About 500 people were on the grounds. The total number was much larger as buyers
were going and coming all the day.
The receipts of the sale amounted to about $5,000. The horses brot a good price, selling
on the average for about $150 each. Little was realized from the farm machinery and other
miscellaneous material. Some of it went for a song.
The sale was attended by farmers and bargain hunters from over the county. On account of
the mass of the material sold an assistant auctioneer was needed to take the bids from the

SHOT TURKEYS IN EARLY DAYS
Wild Birds Abounded on Island in 56
That Winter Venison Was So Plentiful that Settlers Were Tired of it. In
early days which are still within the recollection of first Fremont settlers, they shot
their Thanksgiving turkeys over on Fremont Island in the Platte river, instead of buying
them, already dressed, at the market places, as they do now. It was in 1856 the
year that Fremont was staked out.
I well remember it, said Mrs J J Hawthorne this afternoon. It was the
first year we were here and tame turkeys in Nebraska were unknown. Some of the young men
went on a turkey hunt on the Platte. They shot several turkeys on the island. I saw one of
them myself. It weighed eighteen pounds.
Mrs Hawthorne recalls that for meat that year turkey supplied the one relief from
monotonous venison, which was served nearly every meal. That year Indians shot 400 deer on
Fremont island and vicinity.
