Farmers Make Use
of Bulletin Boards
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Feb. 2. (Special.) Several
Nebraska farmers are availing them
selves of th farm bulletin board tor
advertising purposes. According to the
provisions of tno state statute, each farm
owner has tho privilege ot choosing a
name for his tarn. The bulletin board
It mado of cheap lumber, neatly painted
and placed at tho side of the road near
tho letter box. At the top of the board!
is the name of the farm; next Is the
name of the owner.
On the blackboard below theso names
Is written a list of the stuff which the
farmer has tor sale. On another space
1b the articles which ho wishes to buy.
One farmer declares that he has found
the bulletin board a most effective means
oT advertising nrtlcles which he cannot
advertise, in the farm, nd, dally papers.
This Is especially truo of produce, which
appeals to tho passing automoblllsts.
Chickens, eggs and other eatables aro
disposed of without loss of time. The
bulletin board may also be used as a
warning, a friend, a guide and a coun
sellor to the Itinerant agent who some
times manages to consume chtfnks or
tho farmer's time.

LINCOLN, Feb. 2. (Speclal.)-The an
nouncement ot George W. Bcrge that ho
would be a candldato for the democratic
nomination for governor with the pub
lication ot his confession ot faith, was
the theme ot most ot the talk around the
state house this morning.
"His platform looks to me pretty vis
lonnry," said a" prominent democrat," and
for thd life of me I can't see much to It
from a practical standpoint, I am pretty
progressive myself, but It looks to mo as
l this was a wholesale bid for votes."
"If Berge puts tn effect everything ho
advocates In his platform," said another,
It won't be necessary tor a man to die to
go to heaven, wo will have a heaven ot
our own right hero In Nebraska,"
Mr. Berge was ono of the poplest of
populists At tho time he was a candidate
for governor on the popu'lst ticket, but
was defeated by John II. Mickey, the re
publican candidate. His platform at that
tlmo covered a great deal of territory and
his speeches wcro as a general thing con
fined to a tirade against the railway pass
system, notwithstanding office holders of
the party to which ho bolongcd wore do
ing a wjiolesalo business In passes them
selves, but It was left to n republican
legislature to abolish tho system.
In connection with tho candtdury of Mr.
Berge at this tlmo and his profession ot
faith, a democrat was led to say today:
"I didn't see anything in his platform
favoring woman suffrage or prohibition.
Mr. Berge has always been for prohibi
tion, and I had supposed from what I
had heard that he was a suffragist, but
his leaving out those two Important
things rather leads me to believe that

Horses to Get Their
Skins and Tallow
ABERDEEN, S. D., Feb. 2.-(8peclal.)-Mlke
Kemler of this place has Just con
fessed to having poisoned fifteen horses,
some ot them blooded animals and others
family pets, that he might make a few1
dollars selling their skins and rendering
out their carcasses In a tallow works he
conducts at the outskirts of town.
For many moons the Aberdeen author
ities have been trying to catch a fiend
who had been poisoning horses. Finally
suspicion was attached to Kemler, and
ho was watched and sufficient evidence
secured to warrant his arrest. When
taken by Deputy Sheriff T. C. Wyckoff
Kemler made an excuso to step from the
house, and, apparently unobserved by
officer, rushed to the stable to get a
bottlo half full of arsenic which ho had
hidden above tho stable door. When he
found the bottle gone and was toftl by
Wyckoff that the officer had It in his
own pocket. Kemler broke down and con
icemier said the Idea first occurred to
him last summer when he was regretting
that there were so few animals on tho
city dump. To divert suspicion, he went
to Sioux Falls to securo the poison. Ho
watted until the proprietor was out and
then bought the arsenic of a young clerk
and succeeded In avoiding the law re
quiring purchasers of poisons to sign
their names In a register. He sprinkled
some ot the poison in a pasture whero
horses fed, und there was a gratifying
Increase In the number of dead animals
hauled to the dump heap, and Kemler's
business Increased accordingly. Then ho
grew bolder, and as he drove about the
city picked out exceptionally fat horses,
which he "doped" with the arsenic when
ever he secured an opportunity. His
supply running out, hq made another trip
to Sioux Falls, and thts time was forced
to sign the register before he could secure
the arsenic, and thts signature stands as
evidence against htru.
