Whoever the purUes responsible for the selection of the open season on pheasants are, they can feel certain of making numerous new enemies because of the particular days set aside. It Is generally understood that the reason for opening some counties and especially the increase in hunters' fees was to make money and not merely afford sport for fans. How can the grocery men, the barbers, the bakers, etc., leave their work from twelve to five on Saturdays and likewise Wednesday proceeding Thanksgiving? Surely the hunting days were not for the middle man to enjoy. Erof. Collins can be irlven credit for knowing more than how to instruct high school pupils to toot a horn. Saturday he was without a gun to go a- hunting with. Quickly his agile brain solved the problem. He called eight of his boys together, eight boys with eight air rifles. He tied the eight rifles together and when a cock pheasant got up eight triggers released eight BB shot, enough to down any bird when manipulated by Sure-Shot Collins. It cost the United States government only a few dollars Into the millions to acquit Insull. Try and get four or five dollars a week for «, needy family from the same source and find out what red tape Is. Justice must be served.
