Tim Hennessey of Inuiau Creek, who
was in town last Saturday, tells us that
his l'J-year-old sttfpsou. Tommy Wallace,
killed two deer thn Kauday lefore in a
remarkablo maimer. Tho lioy, while
hunting iu the mountain:, near Iudiun
Creek, shot a largr; buck und killed it at
the first fire. Just as tho slain deer fell
another buck pnaculud itself right along
side tbo dead one. Yonu Wallace,
thinking ho hud won lanruls enough for
a boy in one day, concluded not to shoot
again. But when ho started to get his
game, wliut was hw surprise to see this
one ulso fall to thu ground, and when he
reached the spot he found two dead deer.
He had shot them both at the first fire.

of the first had crtcTcd tho breast of the
