George Hanson of Stanton is authority
for the statement that Nels Thompson of
Butterfly is raising snakes for that pur
pose, and to prove that he Is not peddling
a cock and full story he came to Omaha
yesterday armed with affidavits signed
by Judge Cowan of Stanton county de
claring that Hanson Is a truthful man. At
the Merchants hotel, where Mr. Hanson
stopped, he told a Bee reporter this:
"Butterfly township is eight miles south
east of Stanton and I was down there last
week selling cream separators. One noon
I stopped at Thompson's for dinner and
while coming in from the stable, where I
bad put up my horse, I saw a big bull
snake wriggling along, . followed by
dozen or more little chicks. This seemed
strange and when I got to the house
called the attention of Mr. Thompson to
the strange family. She laughed and re
marked, That snake Is the mother of the
chicks.' Asking her to explain, she took
me out to the hen house and there In
boxes in one corner werv three great
snakes curled u pin boxes. -
"Gently lifting the snakes, I saw nests
fined with eggs. 1 Then the woman told
me the story. Early In the spring Mrs.
Thompson set a hen. Intending to have
early fries. A couple of days later rats
killed the hen. The eggs were left In the
nest and the next day when Mrs. Thomp
son went to the hen house colled up over
the eggs was a big bull snake. As these
snakes are harmless, she did not disturb
this one. Day and night It covered the
eggs and at the end of the required time
eleven chicks were hatched, only one egg
having spoiled. The next day the snake
came off its nest and from that time on
it mothered the chicks, brooding them

Scours Farm for Snakes.
As an experiment Thompson skirmished
about his farm and caught bull snakes
and took them home. In boxes he placed
eggs and slakes and in almost every in
stance the -reptiles went to setting. A
numoer of them brought off broods of
chicks and right now, or rather, when I
was at the Thompson ranch last week,
there were three snakes on their nests.
As an Investment, Mr. Thompson finds
the snakes profitable. By setting the
reptiles he keeps the hens busy laying
eggs Instead of having them around loiter
ing away their time on nests. Again, it
costs nothing to miss the sr.&kss, at
they gather their living from the fields
and gardens, where they devour countless
numbers of Insects."

TECUMSEH, Neb., June A (Special.)
yesterday was attended h .hf -Acooram 10 tne reports of County
t r. . :. Assessor A,
members of the Commercial club and cltl-
sens. it was decided that the present
telephone rates as embodied In the fran
chise of the New Home Telephone com
pany are good enough and that there Is
no necessity of paying two rates for two
. telephones to one company. A commit
tee consisting of Dr. C. C. Gafford, Judge
.Frank B. Crawford and Mahlon Neumann
was appointed to draw up a contract,
which It is hoped all telephone users will
sign, In the contract it will be agreed
to pay for but one telephone, and to pay
no more than present rates. In case the
Lincoln Telephone and Telegraph com
; pany, now owning both systems in Wy
more, will continue to charge for both
telephones, or will not cut the two sys
tems together or try to raise the rates,
- all telephone users will discontinue their
use at one time. It is thought this sys
em will bring results sooner than to lay
"the matter before the railway commission.
A meeting will be held the first of next
-week in the matter. Manager Ahlquest
of the Lincoln company says he thinks
his company will charge for but one tele
phone where patrons have both after
-July t He also thinks Bell patrons will
be given benefits of the New Home coun
try connections very soon. He cannot
" say when the two systems will be cut to
gether in AVymore. j
