bounty was paid, from June 7,

period for the post year it was
A meeting has been called at
the Valley View grange next
Saturday, Feb. 28, to complete
this organization and arrange to
order the fence. The Times
Herald is pleased to note this
disposition among the farmers
to help themselves in such
matters and holies to see it a
success. We have not considered
that a bounty on rabbits would
bring any relief and would be a
very expensive experiment. In
fact the writer has stated it
would be less expense and more
practical for the county to buy
the fence rather than place a
bounty on rabbits.
