Herman Plath, a farmer living a mile and a half from Spencer, reported one of the most fiendish and unusual acts ever committed in that community. On Saturday night of last week Mr. Plath’s pasture was entered and his horses and cows attached and repeatedly stabbed by some wanton criminal who left no trace of his identity. One of the horses was killed outright and a two year old colt and two cows were severely stabbed. Mr. Kempfert, who lives a half mile nearer Spencer, was also visited and two of his cows lacerated.
