Being used to a full night's ^leep, even if in the. early morning hours,, he still managed to arise at 4:30 a. m., cold, dark, blustering Weather outside,' to meet the trappers. Real he-men trdppers don't stop for breakfast Jntil. they've made the. rounds, but our reporter being of a softer nature, had to have a cup of coffee, at the Chrome before taking bff, Farmyard lights were on, so he knew he wasn't the only gent up in the early hours. In Union twp. inspection of four traps found nothing; a second array of traps were also empty; same with a third. But in the fourth group a mink was found, drowned, poor animal. Thls' the sole catch. Our reporter says that at one spot they found a trap missing and a tree badly chewed up, and he figures maybe the boys had a bear that got away.

Gold, muddy, and hungry, the two trappers and yo(ir reporter returned to Myers Cafe, where six full breakfasts were consumed. About all he could say for this .trapping business was, that it is one way to get you off to an early start for the rest of the clay and insure your going to bed early that night. * « •; pow.n at Bode the other day, a couple of young fellows were out hunting, and accidentally shot their own dog . . . they've sworn off hunting. * * » That police car skunk, by the. way, was salvaged.
