should Dog* Be Tax eat
It seems only natural that a man
owning a dog of money value should ,
be satished to pay a moderate tax tot j
the pleasure tand profit of owning '
this useful canine friend, and it does '
not look reasonable that there should;
be any kick on the owner's part when
he is asked to pay this small stipend
to his county or State.
There is no doubt of the fact that, j
owing to the topography of the Odd1
Dominion. there is, and will be I
for years to come, a fairly plentiful ?
supply of game, and game of such a
nature that the services of a good dog
will be requisite in the securing of
tlie same. The Virginia farmers, on
tin- whole, are lovers of sport, and |
when the season is in they are ardent;
in the pursuit of the variety of game '
that our woods and fields afford. The *
man that keeps a good dog and takes \
care of it as it should be cared for,
will have a useful servant and a tlrm I
friend, for no animal responds more j
readily to liberal rations and kind;
treatment than the dog.
