Three months ago tUe I lioois law cf
feriDg a bt untj ct 2 cents for the head of
each English sparrow killed within the
limits of tbe emu-, went into effect. Tte
law fixed tbe et d of February as tbe time
when tbe bcuniics should cea to re
paid. During the three months tbe dif
ferent coutitj treasurers hdve paid out in
round numbers 9.00U as bounty money.
This shows that about 450.000 sparrows
have been killed. Thireisno diminu
tion in the number of the pesky birds
still alive. It is a curious fact that in
Cook county, where there are more spar
rows than in any other county in the
state and plenty of boys to kill them, the
bounty amounted to only 411. Tbe
largest amount ptiid by any county was
that of I-rquioa, $' 031. Jikson coun
ty usid the least. 3 90.
The luw has been proven to bs a com
plete failure as tar as effecting a decrease
in tbe numbers of these birds. They
multiply faster than all the target rifles
in the country, continuously employed
against them, can reduce them. Moreov
er, in impliedly sanctioning the use of
guns in the city, tbe law has been tbe
fundamental cause of a large number of
personal ir juries. Most of the gunning
has been done by boys, and they have
not always been careful to Bee that their
bullets were well backed up in case the
sparrow was too small to stop them. Fly
ing shot have produced a nusaber of seri
ous and painful injuries, but the sparrows
are still here.
If the bounty of two cents a bird were
raised to double tbe amount, or some
thing like that, there might be a more
active warfare, but it is too low at pres
ent for a cunner to make days' wages aad
find bis own ammunition . It looks as
though the sparrows were here to stay,
the same as tbe rabbit and the Sco tch
thistle are in Australia, where they were
imported from England some years ago
to remind the sc-ttlcrs of home, a good
deal as the English spnrrow Was brought
to this country.

List night was the fl:st time Iv xington
has had a minstrel show since November,
and it seemed from the s;.e of the auni
ence as if every one was just hungry for
another. Messrs Gadvear, Eiitch &
Shilling, whose names form the title of the
minstrel enmbinatiou, are three an ;illy
minstrels as cverdmctd or sang before tbe
footlights, and mike a very s'rnng organi
z-ition. In orcaniz n their company tbey
have 'hown rare judgment, and have suc
ceeded in making everything in tbe show
good. Nothing is tolerable, but first-class,
and every act and specialty ws enthusi
astically received by the audience. All
who went last night congratulated them
selves thereat, and all say those who fail
ed to go mi-sed a great treat. Success is
sure to come to Ibis popular company,
and if they ever come back tbey will be
even better received than they were last
