MAKES CHARGE OF WITCHCRAFT
Nebraska Farmer Believes His Fam
ily is Bewitched.
Spencer, Neb., Jan. 22. The people
of Boyd county aro not a little excited
over the charges of wltchcratt against
a young woman living a few miles
trom Spencer. Tho complainant Is a
well known farmer nnmed Jacob Jar
bens and the story he tells of the spell
cast by the witch is fully up to tho
san dn rd furnished by tho early inhab
itants of Salem, Mass., during the
balmy dnys of witchcraft.
Jarbens, who Is about seventy
years of age, accompanied by his
twenty-year-old dnughter, went to
Butte, and requested that ho bo al
lowed to fllo a complaint against u
certain young woman of his neighbor
hood, in which he would charge her
with being a witch. He told his tale
to the county officials with many tears.
His story was In substance that his
son had attended a dance last Faster
and hail askod a young woman of the
party to dnnco with him. In the
whirl of tho function ho suddenly
found that he was unable to get one
of his feel to tho lloor nnd he declared
himself to bo under tho spell of a
witch. He was assisted to n chair
whero ho sat for some l lino crylnjj
nnd laughing. Ills sister took him out
of doors and after a abort respite ho
cast off the spoil.
However, young Jarbens, unable to
resist the fascinations of tho young
woman again started in a waltz, the
result being similar to tho first spell.
Tho lnd's sister finally Induced her
days tho hysteria did not abate. Final
ly somo one from Spencer was in
duced to go to tho Jarbens farm and
quote scripture, which had tho effect
of temporarily allaying tho spell of
the alleged witch.
Tho family of Jarbens was not
troubled by the "Influonce" until somo
of tho family of the suspected young
woman chanced to pnss the Jarbens
1'f.uKe, when tho "spell" came on ngaln
In fuller force. When tho "spell" was
broken young Jarbens was sent to nn
other part of tho Btate.
Jurbens, Sr., stnlcd Hint since tho
loy left the "spirits" had been at work
on other members of I'no family and
evil designs against tho cattle nnd
other b lorglngs of tils family were
noted. J?onie of the .Inrbens' eattlo
nnd stock has died and the family lays
It to tho influences of tho witches.
