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.

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.
