shots in the country, having lefuscil
several offers from prominent rille

come in competition with the best ex
perts, adveitising their lines of rilles.
In one act of the play she has to free
tier father who has been captured and

steady nerve and a quick, eye for both'

catch onto the Missouri way ol doing
things, or rather Out way of telling
about it. II. A. Young says, whil.
out hunting on Thanksgiving, he ft'reu
at a quail just as it rose from the
ground, killed it, and. the iamu shoi
killed a rabbit sixty, oiv seventy kit
beyond. If the rabbit had kept still
Voting would, never, have known, he
hit it. but as it was dead it dldn'tt
want to stiiy out in the cold, so in

"where it was at." There are Hai
