HIES AND RUNS AWAY AT
QUERIES ON SHOOTING.
RODE A NEWS MAN'S BICYCLE
Glad to De Free From Jail and Hand
cuffs , Docho Sat on His Farmhouse
Porch Sunday Afternoon and Dis
cussed the Crops and Weather.
[ From Momlny'ii Dully. ]
Herman Docho llko many another
urn before him has lived to learn that
Iborty Is a very precious thing. Four
nonths In jnll has spelled "freedom"
n capital letters to Bochc.
Herman Bocho Saturday afternoon
topped from the Jail cell Into the
rco air of the countryside. It was
. big stop , that transition from the
age llko Jail tit Madison to the farm
iy the Elkhorn.
Saturday Bocho again bccamo the
load of his household. When bond
mil court instructions wore brought
nto Madison Saturday afternoon
iocho went out of the jail corridor and
ound wife and son waiting. Ho was
Irlven at once to his farm south of
Sunday made a new man out of
5ocho. One day out In the air with
10 Jingling handcuffs went far to-
vards wiping from Bocho's face and
nliul the record of his life since that
lay day shooting.
Bocho back on his own farm Sun-
lay held his head up. Ills face seem
ed to put on new llcsh and a siullo
crept Into his eyes.
Bocho is no man of words but ho
smiles at the green fields and says
hat It Is good to bo loose. For seven
lays after the May day tragedy
Bocho lived the life of a wild thing
united In the wood. One night as ho
crept towards homo the light of the
sheriff's lantern Hashed In his face and
bullets from the sheriff's revolver rang
Dy him nnd plowed two holes In his
clothes. Four months Bocho was be-
lilnd the bars nt Madison. For two
months , following the attempt to
wncturo Sheriff Clements' anatomy
with a pitch fork , ho hns been in close
confinement broken only recently by
short walks but always with the
special deputy nnd the over present
landcuffs. Handcuffs are dismal things ,
disagreeably suggestive , and Boclic
when ho stepped Into freedom Satur-
ilay found pleasure In poking his
hands whither he pleased.
Shy Concerning Shooting.
If you had gone to the Bocho farm
Sunday you would not have had the
hospitality of the place thrown nt
your feet but you would had had a
decent , civil greeting. You would
have found Herman Boche happy to
be surrounded by his family and will
, ing to shako your hand. You would
- have sat by his side on the steps and
been frankly assured by Bocho that
he wouldn't kill you , that you were
safe in his farm yard. You would
have discussed the crops , the weather
and the roads and had your questions
answered. You would have touched
on the murder charge nnd seen Bocho
rise in an instant nnd vanish into
the house. And if you had still sat
on the steps Boche would have come
, back to your side and again plunged
Into the house nt any question or
reference that was pointed.
"How does it seem to bo In the
to any man. "
open again ? " "Good , Just like It would
"And what of Madison ? " "Glad to
be out , Just like any man would. "
"And the boys have kept up the
farm ? " "Of course , haven't I been
away all the time ? '
Boche won't "talk. " "Don't talk.
Don't talk. Don't 'talk. " The words
of his lawyers ring In his ears.
Rides a Bicycle.
But Bocho is not uncivil and If you
had ridden a wheel out to 'the Bocho
farm as a News representative did
Boche would had mounted your wheel
and ridden It around the barn yard.
Boche can ride a bicycle and found
some pleasure In a little spin Sunday.
Bocho's small grain Is cut and his
corn is getting ready for the harvest.
The Boche farm is well known to
Norfolk people In years past as a flsh-
ing resort It stands back from the
roadside and is reached by a narrow
jarry sort of n road that runs between
two corn fields and throws you un
expectedly into the Boche yard by n
sudden turn. Its Just an ordinary sort
of a farm house. Close by are the
waters of the Elkhorn. In the yard
Boche Is sitting with a friend or two
and some of his family.
Boche on November 25 will leave
the farm again for his December trial
at Madison for the slaying of Frank
Jarmer. But until Chen ho will stay
on the farm. "I won't run away , "
Boche said Sunday.

THE NEBRASKA PRIMARY.
Lincoln Star : The direct prlmar >
has not come to stay In Nebraska un
less It bo considerably Improved A
the present time , with the vexations o
Tuesday fresh In the minds of cand !
dates and of nil political workers , it Is
counted unsatisfactory and cumber
some. Owing to various interpreta
tions of the law , there Is even now am <
pie ground for n fine assortment ol
legal protests against the workings
nnd results of the primary. Officials
high In authority were not agreed as
to its provisions , and the humble vote )
stumbled quite blindly through perplex
Ing processes demanded by a frightful
ly "botched up" statute. The sup
posed virtue In a primary Is the In
creased opportunity It affords for get
ting at the wishes of the greatest pos
slble number of voters. But judglnf
from the lack of Interest which UK
voters In dozens of precincts took it
the primary , it Is doubtful whethei
Tuesday's results represent the "wil
of the people" moro fully than th <
work of a delegate convention wouli
have roprcsented It. Ono of the prln
clpal faults of the primary Is that 1
makes the avoidance of perjury , 01
the part of a candidates , exceeding ] ;
difficult. A man can scarcely gi

paign 111(0 tilt ! 0110 JllHt clOHUll , Illlll
