Kill the Rats
The rat war is started.
A bonus of twelve and a
half cents is offered for dead
rats; rat-tails to be evidence
Merchants of Borger will
co-operate by offering valu-
able prizes in merchandise for
the persons who kill the most
rats. This is in addition to a
$10 cash prize already sub-
scribed, and to the standing
bonus for rat-tails.
Full particulars of the plan
are not yet worked out, but
they will be announced Mon-
Now Borger ought to get
after these rats. They are a
.nuisance and a menace.
Let us all do our best to kill
many rats. The prizes are
good things; they stimulate
interest in this beneficial
slaughter. But even without
the prizes we ought to kill the

do you think you have pois-

or smashed any with a broom-
Too many rats in Borger.
Not mice, but rats; big ones.
You remember the rats in
Hamlin-town, as Browning
told of them, how "they bit
the babies in the cradles, and
ate the soup from the cook's
own ladles." Well, they are
not that bad here yet, but
they are pretty bad. And Bor-

Von Hindenberg to
Receive Old Estate
BERLIN (AP)—Though Presi-
dent von Hindenburg has repeated-
ly expressed the wish that 110 gifts
'be showered upon him on his eigth-
Seth birthday, October 2, there is one
gift which, it is believed, he will be
pleased to accept.
The veteran's societies of Rosen-
berg county, in western Prussia,
will present the soldier-president
with the esatte of his forefathers
at Neudeck. The estate was given to
Colonel Otto Frederick von Hinden-
>Jmrg, an ancestor of the president,
by Frederick the Great, at the con-
clusion of the second Silesian War
( 1744-1745 ). Hindenburg's grand-
father, Otto I .aid wig von Hinden-
burg, received the estate from his
father in 1801.
At Neudeck the president's father
Robert, was born in 1XIH. II" wm
the fourth son, however, and did not
inherit the estate.

New Prospective "Czar" Is
Man of Gary
Left Farm to Struggle Up
The New York Stock Exchange
is proverbially skittish. Let a day's
course of events deviate the nor-
mal path ever so slightly, the stock
market is apt to resound with ti
gyrating succession of falling' price
Yet when Judge Elbert H. Gary,
chairman of the hoard of the
United States Steel Corporation,
died suddenly, the market remained
firm. U. S. Steel common dropped
five-eighth of a point then, before
the day was over, it rallied and
even went up a trifle.
There probably are several rea-
sons why the death of one of the
nation's leading industrialists failed
to disturb llie market. One of
them, undoubtedly, is Judge Nath-
an L. Miller.
Judge Miller, it is generally ex-
pected, will suceed Judge Gary as
arbiter of the great steel combine.
The behavior of the market 011 the
day of Judge Gary's death gives a
hint to lii:s character and reputation.
Has Notable Record
Little is known to the public at
large, Judge Miller is both well
and favorably known in the finan-
cial world. He is known as an able
corporation lawyer, a man who has
played the political game shrewdly
and honorably, a financial advisor
who is eminently "safe" and con-
servative but who is far from be-
ing a reactionary.
His life story is remarkably like
that of Judge Gary himself.
Like Judge Gary, Judge Miller
was born on a farm and knew the
long, hard work of a farmer's boy
in his youth. Like .Judge Gary,
he left the farm and turned to the
law, starting as a struggling,
poorly-paid small town attorney.
Like Judge Gary, he served for a
time on the judicial bench of his
Vet the similarity is not com-
Miller, for example, mixed in poli-
tics more than Judge Gary ever
did. His connection with llie steel
industry came comparatively late
in his career; Judeg Gary grew up
Nathan L. Miller was born in a
cross roads village in Cortland coun-
ty, N. Y., in 1S68. His boyhood was
spent as the boyhood of most farm-
ers' boys of that generation were
spent—in long days of toil, with no
luxuries. He had ordinary school-
ing of his day—approximately three
months a year—and he had 110 time
to. learn any sport except boxing.
This, it should be stated, was forced
upon him. As a boy he was under-
sized, and had to learn to defend
himself from the town bullies. He
learned so well that by the time
lie had reached his 'teens his asso-
ciates had learned to inspect his
Became a Republican
When young Nathan was 1G two
things happened to him: he de-
cided to enter the law as a profes-
sion, and he became a Republican.
Born the son of a die-hard Demo-
crat, who was almost ready to
fight, when Samuel Tilden was de-
feated by Rutherford B. Hayes, the
boy was captivated by the glitter-
ing figure of James (!. Blaine, and
his admiration led him into the Re-
publican camp -to his father's great
disgust. He has been a Republican
Becoming a Republican in a rock-
ribbed Democratic family was eas-
ier, however, than becoming a law-
yer. Young Miller bad littel mon-
ey; a college education war. out
of the question. So he became a
country school teacher, working in
a lawyer's office in «h,* evenings and
painfully digesting facts about law
in his spare moments.
His legal education had pro-
gressed for perhaps two years
when he entered politics. There
was a Republican county rally, and
. the speaker of the occasion failed
I to arrive. Someone suggested to the
committee in charge that the young
sehoc 1 teacher could make a good
speech. Miller was pressed into ser-
vice, and although he had a scant
hour to prepare his remarks he
spoke so well that he won a reg-
ular place for himself as a cam-
Married School Teacher
111 -J 8!K1, when he was 25, he
took his first step upward, win-
ning the position of county school
I commissioner, at $1200 a year. In
| lifts tours of inspection of the
county's schools ho made the ac-
quaintance of Miss Elizabeth De-
vern, who taught in the Marathon
Academy. After P time Miss De-
vern became Mrs. Nathan Miller.
Miller was admitted to the bar
the same year he became school
commissioner. I11 a few years he
had developed his practice so that
he was considered the county's
outstanding attorney. Due to this
and his ability as a stump speak-
er, he became chairman of the
Cortland county Republican com-
mittee in 189.8, and in 1901 was
elected Cortland corporation coun-
sel. And in 1903, so favorably was
he known to leaders of the New
York Republican party, he was
made 1111 associate justice of the
state supreme court.
Judge Miller remained on the
bench for 12 years, graduating to
the court of appeals in 1913. In
1915 he retired to re-enter private
practice, pleading that he could
not support his family—he had
seven daughters-—011 a jurist's sal-
On his resignation he moved to
Syracuse, where he became coun-
sel for a large corporation at $50,-
000 a year. I11 1920 the Republincan
party drafted him for governor. He
served two years, suffering defeat
by A1 Smith in 1922. Then he re-
entered private practice, moving to
New York City and entering an
alliance with the steel industry that
grew closer and closer as the years
Known as "Czar"
Judge Miller has the reputation
of being a ''czar," of ridin gover
suggestions of his subordinates and
of insisting on following his own
ideas regardless of opposition. Those
who know him best, however, say
that these reports are wrong; that,
lie is a capable, firm executive but
that he has a markedly "human"
side, however little the general
public may see of it.
And, although he is very con-
servative in his views on business
and politics, he could not be class-
ed as a reactionary—-not, at least,
by his own definition.
"A reactionary," he said, "is a
man living in the past, a man who
i,s looking backward instead of
forward. I believe in looking
ahead—although 1 also believe in
using the light of past experience
as a guide."
