given as follows:

the same shall be taken by any
such animal, or shall maliciously or
wantonly in any manner or by any
means, not otherwise particularly
specified in this chapter, destroy, or
injure any personal property of
another, such persons upon con­
viction thereof shall be punished
by imprisonment in the penitentiary
not less than six months nor more
than three years, or by imprison­
ment in the countv jail not less
than three months nor more 'ban
one year, or by a fine of not less
thin $50 nor more than $1000
Sec. 1970 If any person shall
put out or place any poison where
the same is liable to be eaten by
any horse, cattle, sheep, hogs or

upon conviction thereof, shall be
punished by imprisonment in the
