OLD) AND WARtY ANIMALS ARlE
HARtD TIO TlHAP ORt SHIOOT
It is one thing to hunt predlatory
animals in praticcally virgin territory,
and make a spdectacular killing, and
quite another to go into a dlistrict
where only the wicked old offenders
that have eludled 'every body are left
to catch. Hunter John N. Martin
was sent by the Biological Survey of
the United States Department of Ag
riculture to some sheep ranges near
Plainviewv, S. D~ak., adjoining the
Cheyenne Indian Reservation, and
found that during the precedinig win
ter and spring the country had been
hunted andl trapp~ed over by bounty
hunters, with the result that all pups
and young animals, or those easy to
take, were g~ne; sheep losses, never
theless, wecre occurring constantly.
Working steadily for two and a half'
months, Hunter Martin took 30 coy
otes and 2 bobcats, all old1 animals.
About two-thirds of them bore evi
(ence of having been in trap~s fronm
which they hiad escapedl, or of having
been shot and wvounded at some pre'
viousa time. In addition to this kill,
Martin reported that 50 poisoned bals
were taken. The bounty nystemn has
beeni abandoned in many places as a
result of demonstrations by the Blio
logical Survey, as it hmas been found
that, better results in stopping live
stock losses are obtainedl when a hun
ter is hired to give all his time to
hunting, trapping, andl poisoning and
is held responsible for destroying the
actual live-stock killers.

REARRANGEMENT OF KITCIrEN
LIGHTENS HOUSEWIFE'S TASKS
New equipment is not always re
quired to make home kitchens more
convenient and less tiring to work in,
says a report to the United State::
Department of Agriculture on exten
sion-agent work. Much can be done
by rearranging the equipment already
on hand, such as grouping objects
commonly used in the preparation of
food, or those used for washing or
storing dishes, or articles belonging
to the cleaning outfit. In many cases
the attention of the housewife is
drawn to the need of doing work re
quiring a good light by a window, or
by having a good suspended light at
night. One widely adopted improve
ment is that of giving old floors an
easily cleaned surface. A number of
simple contrivances can be made at
home to lighten the housework, and
frequently the farmer himself will as
sist by building shelves, a folding iron
ing board, dresser, wheel tray, and
other labor-saving conveniences.
Improvements in farm kitchens are
being carried on in prac ;tally all the
States. Last year, through demon
strations given by extension workers,
over 21,000 families are reported as
adopting suggestions regarding home
arrangement and management; 7,000
kitchen swere rearranged, 5,000 wa
ter systems installer, 3,000 washing
machines and 4,000 steampressure
cookers purchased, 65,000 homes
screened, 4,000 septic tanks installed,
and 7,000 lighting systems placed in
