THE SHOTGUN SHELL STORY The shotgun shell set up as we see it at the present is just about like this: « Up to the time this ad is written there is no shell available either for farmers or the sportsmen. Shells for pest control are government property and must come from government arsenals. When the arsenal stock is exhausted, we just must wait until it is replenished. As to the sportsman, he may sign up for one box of shells after October 1, but it may be until October 15 before delivery can be made. This is just a guess. Besides this, we will have, we hope, before October 15, an allotted amount of shells to be sold without any strings attached, so please have patience. We will do the very best we can.
