St. Edward Advance: February 20, 1914: Dan Cahill's big sale yesterday afternoon attracted buyers from all over the country and it has been estimated that nearly a thousand people were in attendance. The list called for 64 horses and mules of which seven were registered stallions, and 41 head of registered shorthorns and the sale price reached nearly $22,000. A number of buyers were
present from Omaha and Kansas City, and individual buyers from Illinois, Minnesota, Idaho and Utah. The average price of the cattle amounted to over $100 and the horses averaged about $225. The highest priced span of horses went to Franklin Ice Cream Co. of Kansas City, at $590 and they also purchased 6 other teams. A strange feature about this sale was the big attraction for buyers that over 75 percent at the ringside came to the sale in automobiles,
over 100 cars being parked on the Cahill farm. During morning an almost constant string of cars worked between town and the Cahill farm taking out people for the sale and it is estimated that thirty cars were in attendance that had come a distance of over fifty miles, bringing prospective buyers, for Mr. Cahill has made a national reputation for himself in the breeding of fancy horses and cattle and the announcement that he was placing a large offering on the stock brought the breeders from all directions.
