RABBIT BRIVES AGAIN PROBABLE Snowstorm is Likely to Cause Pests to Bunch Up In Near Future Should the snowstorm that commenc ed yesterday morning continue long rabbit drivea will be popular again this winter. The pests are reported fully aa numerous on the West Side thia vear. as last, but up to the pres ent time there has not been sufficient snow to cause them to congregate in big buncbea as was the case last vear. So long aa the grass and feed ia not covered up the rabbitts do not gather in large oroves. and hence the drives eoold -not be conducted successfully. But aa aoon ' the feed is buried be neath the snow then Brer Kabbit wants company and thev mingle to gether in vast droves. For a distance of aeveral miles perhaps not a track ! will be seen and ihen all at once the ' brush will be literally alive with the little at imals.
