Li FDR INSPECTION OF SEWS
Money Thrown Away, and Many Horse Breeders Deprived of the
Use of Stallions Through a Mere Compulsion by Law, Which
is Unfair to Many.
Reports have come, ia from
various pai ls of tin- statu that (lie
stallion ami jack examination law,
enacted nt tin; last session of the
.slate legislature, is not meeting
with Hie hearty endorsement of
all Hie farmers and owners of
animals in the .-tale. The con
lun'Joti is made against I lie meas
ure thai while it was designed to
rid the stale of underisahle or
disease breeders, it does not ac
complish that in fact. The rea
son set out therefore is that not
all of the examination work is
conducted in a thorough and
competent manner, and that there
s little or no good resulting from
the, operations of the measure.
The following from the Ord
Quiz, is an example of complaints
which have been made from other
sources since the registration law
went into effect:
"And bow do these deputies
work? They advertise that at a
certain date they will lie in a cer
tain town. . The stallions and
jacks are brought in, the deputy
looks into their mouths, runs his
lingers over their legs and de
mands 5 for his fee.
"What could such a law avail in
discovering hereditary disease or
ailments? Such a cursory exam
ination means that a due horse
showing a blemish from a kick or
defective wind caused temporarily
by eating musty hay will he prac
tically disbarred from the service
just as effectually; as (hough his
blemishes were duo to a long line
of diseased ancestors.
"We are told (hat (he deputy
who visited Ord examined forly-
seven stallions and jacks. Of
course he look out of Ord $225 for
his day's work, hoes the state
get Hie money? II is safe to say
that when Hie deputy's salary and
expenses are paid and the office
force maintained at the stale farm
(here is nothing left. More likely
there will be a dcflicit for the
slate to make up one way or an
other." The law provides that the sec
retary of the state board of agri
culture, the professor of animal
husbandry of the University of
Nebraska and the deputy state
veterinarian, shall constitute the
registration board. Examinations
are conducted under veterinarians
appointed by the board and the
fee (here for is $5 for each exam
ination, $3 for a renewal, and $1
for a certiflieate showing a trans
fer of ownership.
The funds accruing from the
examinations are, according to
the, law, used for printing certi
ficates, for the pay of the inspect
ors and clerks necessary to con
duct the work of 1.1m department
and in publishing an annual
record of stallions and jacks
which have passed satisfactory
Failure to comply with the pro
visions of the new law means a
fine of from $50 to $100, or im
prisonment in the county jail for
thirty days, or both, at the dis
cretion of the court. Animals
which do not pass the required ex
amination are not allowed to be
kept in service and their disquali
fication, in fact, means their re
tirement from (he field of active

Sufferer From Bronchial Troubles
Contracts Disease and Death
From Saturday's Dally.
Leonard II. Jennings died at his
home in Hie .smith part of the city
Wednesday. The death of Mr.
Jennings was caused by measles,
complicated witli other troubles.
II i said that he had been atllicled
for some time witli a bronchial
alTcclion and bad staled that be
feared an attack of the measles
on acocunt of the other trouble
and lived in fear of contracting
the disease on that account, lie
came down with an attack of the
measles, which is a serious mat
ter for an adult in any case, and
being complicated with the
bronchial trouble, caused his
death. lb; Was 37 years and 1
month of age.
Mr. Jennings came here with
his family from the western part
of the slate only last fall. Not
many people knew him, but those
who were associated with him in
any way say that he was a hard
working man of steady habits and
sensible of the duties devolving
upon him as the head of a large
family. He worked at whatever
he could find lo do and for a while
was employed as a section hand
on the Burlington.
A very sad fealure of the case
is that by the death of the husband
and father, the mother is left
with five children, the youngest
of which is but 2 weeks old. Some
of the other children have the
measles and the woman has had
a hard time taking care of her
husband and the children. The
family is without adequate means
to meet an emergency of this kind.
They are worthy people and
should be given the aid that they
so sorely need. The unfortunate
woman and her little ones should
not have their sorrow made all
the greater, or their burden of
grief heavier by any lack of the
willingness of the people of
Auburn to come fn their assist
