THE SPAEROW BOUNTY.
Ihe Erroneous I npresalon a to
When the State P y tor the Knallsh
Fefcta The Law at- it Stands.
As an impression h9 got abroad anions
the youth of Rack Lland that the pay
mentcf the 2 -cent bounty for killing; Eng
lish sparrows took t fleet July 1, tre pub
lish the law below that all may unders
stand for themselves just what its pro
visions are. It will be seen that while
this law, as all others passed by the legis
lature that do not hare an emergency
clause, went into effect yesterday, its pro
visions cannot be tak ;n advantage of un
til next December; as it is only upon
sparrows killed in Dei ember, January and
February of each ye ir that the 2 cent
bounty is to be paid. This will seriously
curtail the revenues of a good many ex
pectant youth, but it is the law "so
nominated in tne bond" and they will
have to submit- There is a fine also for
the attempt to collect bounty on the
heads of any other bi'ds except the Eng
lish eparrow that will be very apt to re
duce the profits of some of the boys if
they are not careful. But here is the law.
Read it for yourselvet:
Section 1. Be it et acted by the people
of the state of Illinois, represented in the
general assembly, tha'. every person being
an inhabitant of this Hate, who shall kill
an lungnsh sparrow in any county not
under township organization, or in any
organized lowcstiip, village or city in this
state during the months of December,
January and Februaiy, shall be entitled
to receive a bounty of two cents for each
sparrow thus killed, to be allowed and
paid in the manner hereinafter provided
Sec. 2. Ev?ry person appljing for such
bounty shall take such sparrow, or the
head thereof, in lots rf not less than 10,
to the county clerk in counties not under
township organzation or to the clerk of
the township, village or city within which
such sparrow shall have been killed, who
shall thereupon decide upon such appli
cation, ana it satitnea ot the correctness
of such claim, thall issue a ceriiticate
stating the amount of bounty to which
such applicant is entit eJ, and deliver the
same to said app'icani, and shall destroy
the heads of such sparrows.
Sec. 3 Such ceruQcate maf be pre
sented by the claimant or bis agent to the
connty elerk of the county in which such
Eparrow or sparrows have beea killed,
who shall thereon draw a warrant for the
amount on the treasurer of said county,
and said treasurer sha 1, upon preiecta
tion of said warrant, pty the Sitne from
the general or contingent fund of said
Sec. 4. If any person, in applying to
the clerk of -counties nit under township
organizition, or to the clerk of any town
ship, village orcity for the certificate
stating the amount of bounty to which
he may be entitled under this act shall
have in bis possession or present to such
clerk the bead or heads of any bird or
birds other than the English spwrow,
such person shall be desired guilty of a
misdemeanor, and upon conviction there
of shall be fined $5 for each bead of such
bird other than the Ei.glish sparrow so
being in his possession or presented to
the clerk. And it shall be the duty of
the clerk to whom such application is
made upon Aiding the head of any bird
other than the Enulish arro w among the
heads presented to him, to confiscate the
heads so presented and preserve them to
be used as evidence aa iinst the person
appljiig for the boun;, and refuse to
issue the certificate.
Sec 5 It is hereby mtul ; the duty of
the director of the statt; lhratory of na
tural historv, to prep-ire, as soon after
this act shall take effect as practicable, a
bulletin of information for the use of the
clerks of county, townships, villages and
cities in this state, to e lable them to dis
tinguish the beads of tie English spar
row from those of otht-r birds, and which
said bulletins shall be delivered to said
clerks free of charge.
Sec. 6. If any clerk of any county not
unaer township organ zttios, clerk of
any township, village or city shall know
ingly issue any certificate" for the pay
ment of the bounty provided for in this
act for the killing of any bird other than
the English sparrow, such clerk shall be
deemed guilty of a n isdemeanor, and
upon conviction thereof shall be Sued not
less than $10
The i-'axrinai ton 1 1 the Cirrus.
Forepaugb's bill posters have made a
picture ealUry of the rity, every avail
able space has been covered with the ele
gant pictorial printins; nf the show, an
nouncing its advent on July 14 The
circus is a human z tr. Its popularity is
chit fly due to the fact that everyone can
understand it, and it arouses in everyone
a sympathy of sentiments which levels
the powers, fortune and station set up.
The millionaire gets no more for bis
mosey than the man who sweeps the
crossings for him, at th; circus. He can
only, see, hear and enjoy, and these pre
rogatives, nature and not fortune confers
on the man.
Once at a oircus in San Francisco,
the late King Ealakaula of the
Sandwich Islands, occupied a seat of
honor. Bis majesty was a sight to be
hold, there wasn't a boy in the audience
who enjoved himself more. He fairly
rolled in his armchair, and for the couple
of hours the show lasted, he was as happy
as if he was not a king.
Not 10 feet from him was a tattered
little bootblack who hal been watched
crawling under the tent just before the
show opened. He wai dirty, ragged,
wbitefaced and ill-fed, and he chuckled
and screamed as lustily in his small way
as anyone, for in his dt light he forgot
that be was losing an afternoon's work,
which meant a dinner and a bed.
Who can say that the circus as an en
tertainment is not a Brent one, that can
thus place king and beg jar on a com
mon level, and arouse in each those iden
tical sentiments which exist in mankind,
whether in a hovel or ot a throne?
