Exchange Adopts Slogan.
The South Omaha Live Stock ex
change is arranging to send broad
cast instructions to farmers, stock
men and breeders as to the best and
simplest methods of increasing live
stock production. The plan will be to
send mailing cards telling them in a
few brief words the resolutions adopt
ed at Lincoln two weeks ago at
the conference of live stock men,
business men and professors of the
college of agriculture of the Univer
sity of Nebraska.
The instructions take the form of
an imperative command, at the same
time appealing to the producer's pa
triotism. It follows:
MAKE THIS YOUR SLOGAN.
Breed sows for fall litters.
Increase breeding of ewes on
farms.
Save from slaughter desirable
breeding stock.
This slogan has been adopted by
the Nebraska and Iowa Agricultural
colleges, many practical stockmen and
the South Omaha Live Stock ex
change. REMEMBER.
All men cannot join the army
and fight in the trenches, but
every man can do his bit by in
creasing the food supply to feed
the men who must fight.
Chickens Are Chickens.
Magistrate Fitzgerald of the South
Side police court yesterday decreed,
"that ducks are chickens and chickens
are ducks, and things that wear feath
ers are fowls, women excepted.
The decision was handded down
in the case of the city against Mrs.
Lena Kadowski, charged with permit
ting her chickens to run at large.
It was brought out at the hearing
that the woman was in court last
week charged with permitting her
chickens to run at large, and was re
leased upon her promise to keep them
within an enclosure. When asked why
she did not keep her promise, she
told the court, through her interpre
ter, that she did. "I kept my chickens
locked up, but you didn't say anything
about ducks, so I let them run loose."
The judge scratched his semi-bald
dome, did a perfect movie registra
tion of "business of thinking" and
made this decision: "Ducks are
fowls," and assessed a fine of $-5 and
costs, which he remitted, the woman's
tearful promise that she would keep
the ducks home if she had to nail
them to the ground.
