: Many people know now just how
" ured. The question Is, why did not
these knowing ones go do the catch

that all those who say this, kept
themselves strictly out of range of the
convicts rifles. The only right val
' uable opinion on these matters must
come from the man or men of the fut
nrewbo catches Tracy and Merrill.

AS TO CHICKENS --
They Must Be Kept at Home The New
Ordinance Must bo Enforced.
Several hens are at large-in town.
Trouble is brewing" for them. --- In
discriminate running at large by
chickens, geese,or ducks is not
allowable in this town. " If chickens
are kept at all within the city lim
its, they must be kept: in a hog
tight, ; chicken-high, goose-strong
enclosure. An ordinance to : this
effect, was legally passed and offi
cially promulgated by the city
council about a week ago. -s.
The chief of police intends to en
force this ordinance. He has : re
ceived, peremptory-- instructions to
do !jO. No guilty hen- will be al
lowed to escape. Just what means
the chief will employ in ; carrying
out the terms of the law can only
be guessed at. The hens . may re
sist or they may- take to their heels
at thcapproach. of the chief. I
therefore, on the back street " some
afternoon, there is seen a breath
less '-old , hen with out stretched
wings and running as fast, as her
legs can carry her, closely pursued
by a hatless, red-faced, and' wind
broken man,- that will be the chief
of police enforcing the . chicken,
ordinance, - -- '
7 Owners of chickens, just the
same, must arrange to. keep their
poultry at home;.; Failure to do so,
will result in fine or imprisonment.
The ordinance is to, be. applied.
