Harry Knabe. a lad who wished to
join the pig club during the war.
asked his father John Knabe, if he J
mgiht purchase a pure bred pig of
the Hampshire variety, and obtain
ing his consent. Harry purchased a
sow pig of R. C. Pollard and when
old enough, was rewarded by it
bringing him fourteen pigs and la
ter the original pig won first prize
as well.
The boar pigs Harry sold as fol
lows: One for $85, one for $75,
one for $55, and one for $50, while
the other two he disposed of on the .

When it is so easy to embark in
pure bred hogs, it is strange that
the farmers will continue to feed
their corn at a less to scrub hogs, and
in many cases take a trimming, when
the pure breds would have shown a
fine profit. Better think this mat-

Hearing Before Judiciary Committee
of House Argie Measure in
Line with Will of Gov.
II. R. 518. abolishing capital pun
ishment except for the murderer
who, while under sentence, delibera
tely kills another, was the subject of
an open hearing before the house
judiciary committee Thursday night.
Representative Hakanson is author
of the bill. The proviso of the death
penalty in payment of the second
killing is intended as a possible safe
guard against . J recurrence of the
prison outbreak of a few years ago.
The hearing was for the purpose
of giving those in favor of the bill
an opportunity to express their per
sonal views. Clifford Rein handled
the program for the opponents of
capital punishment. He said that
while not full' acquainted with the
warden's position, he does know that
the bill is directly in line with the
recommendations made to the legisla
ture by the governor ard that the
conclusions of the executive as ex
pressed in his message match almost
to a letter the language of the bill.
Mrs. G. W. Haynes, of Omaha pre
sented petitions containing some
2,200 names of citizens who are in
favor of complete abolishment of
capital punishment. She said that
this form of punishment is in direct
violation of divine law and against
public morals.
"As individuals," she said, "we
have no right to kill. Does this form
of punishment lessen crime? If we
1 11 m .& 1. : 1

take the view that it has encouraged
crime an that it breeds revenge
said, 'Vengeance is Mine.' Life im
prisonment is more dreaded by the
murdered than death. I believe that
life imprisonment should mean life
Mrs. Frank P. Quick said that it is
worse for the tate to take a life
than for an individual to kill.
"A man should have a right to
second chance alwavs." she said. "I
cannot see why even the life termer

say that both Cole and Crammer
committed the murder for which they
were electrocuted."
"Any man will feel better if he
j loans his sympathies for the' uplift of
j unfortunates," said Judge W. R.
j England. "You know that not a
j man of you would pull the trigger
that means death. Isn't it because
of the feeling that there's something
higher than brute force? The matter
'of taking life is infectious. Can you
tell me that it is elevating?"
Judge England paid high tribute
to Warden Fenton. He said that he
is one of the best penitentiary heads
in the United States. He told of his
own influence in procuring the re-

W. H. Frost, Manager Manley, Nebraska
Will You Do Your Best?
Sure, prices have come down, and another year
is here. Already Spring is knocking at our doors.
How about the coming season; are you going to
give nature an opportunity? The land has sustained
last year's crops, and like the horses and yourself, has
need of something to replace that which has been used
up, if it is to give maximum results this year.
The Litchfield manure spreader is solving the prob
lem of replenishing the elements needed for coming
crops and maintaining the value of your land.
Would you allow your family or your horses to
starve? Why then starve your land?
We have absolutely the best spreader that modern
science has yet devised. Allow us to give you a dem
onstration and see for yourself.
Lumber Prices are Lower!
The farmer, laborer, manufacturer and retailer are
taking their loss. All must do this in the present re
adjustment prpcess, and we have taken stock, and are
placing our lumber prices back to where they formerly
were, even at a considerable loss. They are now at a
level where even the present low prices of grain will
justify their purchase for immediate building.
We furnish you better prices and service than you
could possibly hope to secure from out of town firms.
We buy from the mills the same as they. When you
buy out of town you pay for reloading together with
a high local freight rate, and you know what that means
over $50 per car. We can save you that, and you
don't have to purchase a lot more than you need, either.
See us before buying.
And say, how about a hog house or a chicken
house? They will pay you big dividends. We have
plans, specifications and estimates of their cost.
We want your business on the basis of good ser
vice and money-saving prices. Unless we can give you
these, we don't want you to feel under any obligations
to buy of us.
