Attention Hunters! Editor Leader – I beg to say for the convenience of my many friends throughout the county who enjoy the kick of the gun, the flutter of the quail and the pleasing and delightful view of the rear end of vanishing rabbits – those of you who have been denied the greatest pleasure known to real live, red-blooded men with whiskers – yes, I have something to say to you.
Out on my place there are a few stray quails, some scared rabbits, and once in a while, a woodchuck or two – enough to furnish lots of shooting for the present-day Nimrods.
In order that we may understand each other, will say that I have a fighting bull, a vicious boar and two bad, biting dogs. The fields are full of livestock grazing on the heather, and I will ask that all persons use proper precaution and do not shoot out any window lights, kill any of the wife’s fine poultry, be absolutely responsible for any and all damage done. Otherwise go to it.
M. L. Southall.
