He brought in 21 fox pelts for the county bounty of $2 per head and reported that he had caught all of his foxes within a mile of his back door. Kirchner stated of the pelts was that of the oldest fox he had ever caught. The animal was gray about the head from age and had lost about all its teeth. I. "I trapped this winter to kind of keep the foxes down," Kirchner stated. "Of these 21 pelts, there are 16 females. You can figure what conditions might have been around my place this t year if they had been left alone and had given birth tp their yearly litters. These 15 females could easily have given birth to a total of 75 to 100 foxes. I never set a trap more than a mile from my house and caught every last one of these that close to home." Kirchner collected the county bounty and said he had a market of another $2 for each of the pelts with a private individual who was planning to make a rug from them. i JERSEYVILLE, Jan. 7.—(Special.) — Sheriff C. E. Wedding reports an unusual fox hunting story which occurred in the vicinity of his farm six miles east of Jerseyville this week. Three of Wedding's country neighbors, Dave Collins, Thomas Pewee Collins and Edward Nevius were fox hunting. The fox hounds got a fox started and during the chase, Pewee Collins got in a blast with a shot gun and slightly crippled the animal. The fox took to its den and in order to get it out of its lair, they carried water and poured into the place until the animal finally came out. Pewee and Nevius were on the alert and the former grabbed "the animal by the tail and Nevius grabbed a hind leg. Dave Collins had an old type target pistol which he was carrying on the hunt and circled around the others as they struggled with the fox in an effort to get a chance to shoot the "chicken catcher." The old pistol was a difficult type to cock and fire. Finally, Pewee called for Dave Collins to hand him the gun, and the latter thrust it toward the former. The pistol suddenly discharged and the bullet grazed the end of Pewee's fingers and killed a young fox hound which was standing by the trio of hunters and their quarry. During the shock of the pistol blast, Pewee and Nevius both lost their hold on'the fox, and the animal took off for a new lease on life, leaving the hunters to lament the untimely death of the young fox hound.
