where the case was taken up at 10

so that it will dUfigure her for life. The
state is represented by State'j Attorney

he reviewed the life of the defendant to

it had been thrown into her face while

substance having gotten ' into her eyes.
Mr. Hill stated to witness that the house
had been burglarized and thai be (Hili)
had found a bottle which had contained
chloroform upon which there was a yel

the odor of chloroform in the house at
that time, and was of tbe opinion that if

her nose, lips and the left side of her face
will be disfigured, and the hearing of her

then inquired the name of the buyer, and
was told tbatit was William Johnson, and

later said that it was not for timseSf but
for another man named Miles, who re
sided in the country, and that it was for
a horse. Witness thought no more about
the transaction until a diy or

Witt la F,w Day be Carrlt on
to the Kxtemlaatloa of EokiU
In a very few days now after next
Tuesday the small boys will begin to
lay the foundations for fortunes by in
augurating relentless war upon the pest
iferous bird, the English sparrow. The
law passed by the last legislature, as
heretofore alluded to in The Argcs, pro
vides that a bounty of 2 cents a head
shall be paid on every sparrow killed duts
ing the months of December. January and
February. The slaughter will begin
therefore early on the morning of Tues
day, Dec. 1, and toe work of extermina
tion will continue until dewy eve of the
29 h day of February. As next year is
leap year the birds will have to suffer one
day longer than otherwise. Ard they
deserve to suffer, as they are , murdeiers
and robbers themselves; and the sooner
they are exterminated the better.
It thould not be the part of the stale
or the press as a rule to encourage boys
in slaughtering birds the sweet song
ters of the woods and municipal police
should tRke it upon themselves to see that
young America is not reckless in the use
of his weapons of wirfire. Ia fact., he
should not be permitted to use a gun of
anysortin the city limits.as it is a question
of doubtful expediency in reaching the
end in view, to vest discretionary
rights in the hands of small boys, not
only beciuse many of our own American
birds will pay the penalty aimed at the
English importation, but because it is
dangerous to humin preservation to
place a bounty ou tbe skill of Johnny and
bis little gun.
The English sparrow, however, is a
songless, soulless and worse than useless
bird a bandit that robs and destroys a
bird unclean in habits, murderous in prac
tice, with a song painfully rasping to
every lover of bird music. A writer who
Signs himself "H. B. A.," writes from
Lincoln to the Bloomirc'on Pantograph
about the wicked sparrow as follows:
Tbe sparrow is sm-ill, but what he lacks
in size he more than makes up in multi
tude. Having already become very
numerous and destructive in the Unite 1
Slates our government has, at great ex
pente. looked carefully, thoroughly and
impartially into the habits of this bird, and
has published a report on the subject in a
volume of over 400 pages. In this volume
will be found the testimony of ovtr 2,(H)0
witnesses witnesses from the United
States, Europe and many other parts of
1 can no better than briefly sum up tbe
conclusions of this volufe conclusions
and judgments abundantly confirmed by
the tacts of daily ot servation.
1. The English sparrow (pisser domss
ticus) was introduced into the United
States about 30 years ago. Only a few
pairs were then brought over from Eng
land, but they have spread into all the
older states of the union.
2 The insect pests have greatly in
creased, which the sparrows are supposed
8. The sparrow is insectiverous only a
small part of the year, and for the rest of
the time consumes vast amounts of grain;
also at'acks various kinds of fru-.U
4 While the sparrow is partially in
8ectiverous, he is the inveterate natural
enemv of certain native birds that are
wholly insectiverous, such a9 the wren,
bluebird, aud purple marten, birds much
more valuable in every way than tbe spar
5. The government recommends the
destruction of the sparrow, and liiat, for
many important reasons.
Same of tbe measures recommended by
the government are these: Poisoning the
birds due care being taken in the use of
poison. Another method is the destruc
tion of nests with their contents iD
spring and summer.
Our legislature has passed the bounty
law for bends of sparrows. This law
goes into effect Dec. 1 and continues until
the last of February. Let us hope that
this enactment will result in the destruc
tion oi millions oi tnese pests, it is in
deed much cheaper and better to check
the sparrows when there are millions of
them than wait until there are billions.
Should the boys fail to kill them all by
Feb. 29, 1SP2, it is hoped that every
thoughf ul citizen will destroy all sparrow
nests about bis premises during the
spring and summer, thus greatly check
ing tbe sparrow nuisance, while at the
same time helping the county treasurer.
