Firemen have .always been first to .respond when the nation, became Involved In war, he said. . He recalled the Revolution, when the Civil war and lastly the Spanish war.

NEW DOG LAW IS NOT FULLY UNDERSTOOD , BY MANY PERSONS Continued from Pasrp One. son, or when engaged tn lawful bunt- lag, accompanied by tbe 'owner or handler." If licensed dogs are found beyond the premises of the owner, and unaccompanied by the owner or keeper, "it shall be the duty of every police officer to seize and detain such dog or dogs," and notify the owner. If the costs of detention are not paid within 10 days the officer detaining the dog may sell it or destroy it "m'sorae hu- nrnne manner." It is the duty of every police officer to kill every dog found running at large without a license tag. Failure to perform this duiy subjects, the officer to a fine.of $2.00 for each offense Under an interpretation of the law by the attorney general of tbe state no persons, except those named in the act, are-authorised to kin dogs or to collect tbe fee of $1.00 which the law prescribes .ahall be paid. It would, thus appear that the employment of civilians for this purpose is contrary to the intent and meaning of the law. Any person who sees a dog, whether licensed,nr not, in tho act of pursuing, worrying or. wounding any livestock or attacking liuman beings, may kill them, and without liability for damage to tbe owner of the dog. According to the interpretations of the law these are the only instances in which any person, other than a police officer or high constable can lawfully kill a dog, licensed or unlicensed.
