'Special)Hubert Bull, owner of tho Plymouth-Chrysler garage, was severely burned Sunday morning while burning trash In his back yard. He was throwing a mixture of CnlhounMnn Captures Six Foxes in Week HARDIN, Jan. 10. (Special)— Fred Klaas who lives on East Panther creek In North Calhourt, Is rnally doing hia part toward extermination of foxes. Recently he trapped six of the animals within one week. HP caught all of them with two steel traps. Klaas has been hunting and trapping since boyhood. He has read all the sportsmen's lore ho could find and Is probably fhf> host Informed man In the county on the habits of wildlife. Most of us consider the fox as tho brnnlest of nil wild nnimah, but Klass says he Is In some respects the most stupid. Ho traps the foxes In the open fields, using a special scent to Jure them to the traps. He says trapping Is a lot like fishing. A fisherman will sometimes set n half do/on polos, but only one of them will patch any fish. Tho same Is true with the trap set for foxes. According to Klass, a fox Is capable of disseminating two different sccnft*. One of these Is tho danger scent which warns r,1h»r animals to stay out nf the neighborhood. The other Is what ho calls the friendly or the all clear, scent. The latter Is the kind of artificial scene that the trapper uses around his sets. Foxes In the county, and es- pecially In the north end, have be come bold during the last few years. Many of them do their scouting In broad daylight and sometimes pick up a fat hen while they are on a scout. One of them became so bold a few months ago as to Invade a dwelling house when he found the kitchen door ajar. Majty of them are mangy and sick and all of them are hungry. Cathoun County paid about $900 In fox and wolf bounties during 1949. gasoline and kerosene on the trash pile when the fire blazed up and ignited gasoline In a bucket In his hands. The most, severe 'injuries wero to his left hand and right hip. He was taken to St.. Anthony's Hospital, St. Louis, In Hanks ambulance.
