I used think about this removing
of mountains a good deal when I wa
a child and I was finally convinced
that it couldn't be done, but I wa
wrong. I took it all literally then, hut
there are other mountains which faith

and impassable as those reared by
earthquakes or formed by erosion DtiiJ
which stop our progress as completely "
There are mountains of discourage

Written for the Anti-Gun Club by
Mrs. F. B. Pennock
Here's an ode to the China, that grim
seed of hate,
'Twixt t lie farm and the gun club,
the Devil's own mate.
How the hunters adore him, with all
of his sin;
But the weary old "Hayseed," loges
As he strolls down the trail where
the China has been.
Alas for the melons he hoed with
For the law armored china has beaion
He tightens his belt, and strolls on to
Which lie tilled with high hopes in
tue young dewy morn.
But here to the china has finished the
And left for the farmer the stark nak
He ruined the grapes and the straw
Of what he has missed, not one thing
meets our view. .
He has scratched up the turnips, and
bit all tne spuds,
Pecked into the squashes, and then
mussed the duds,
Which lie loaned to the scare-crow, to
keep him at bay.
The duds we shall need on our cold
We bubble and simmer down under
For we know we're the goat as has
long been confessed.
We give him our gardens, and give !
him our fruit.
And fat him up fine for the nimrods
And if a stray bullet should slaughter
Tis a small thing to "holler about"
The game wardens warn us of prison
If we should dare on his carcass to
But we gaze on the wrecks of our la
bors and pains,
W ith grim satisfaction, we munch the
And should the game lovers once
venture our way,
We have all clubbed together to see
that they stay.
On the safe public highwoy, nor ven
ture to pass,
Over one tiny blade of "old tassels"
We too can get warrents, and trespas
And we don't have to post every
fence with a sign.
The peace loving farmer is forced to
For the china must go, if the farmer
He looks on the flag that unfurls to
And then on the game warden, skulk
ing at ease,
In the cool restful shade of his hand
He thinks of vain toil in the swelter
He thinks of the license he pays on
He mops off his forehead, and mur
murs by heck,
It's time to take that D-Mn law by the
So now Mr. Warden, come if you dare,

That the season will open when e're

: We will test out the power of these
laws of the great,
To confiscate our farms to grow game
for the state.

stands to date,
To grow game for the Gun Clubs In
the name of the state.
And this Is no bluff, but a bonified

and I advertise in the BGWiP&pan in
small towns around Pigeon. There's
no secret to It advertising has done !
