Our Melvln reporter writes in
that there is trouble in that town
ship between the drain commissioner
and Fnaicis Downing. The commis
sioner began the work of running a
ditch across Downing's place against
his wishes and ho threatened to shoot
any person that should go on his pro
mises for that purpose. Tho men hav
ing the work in hand went into the
place and Downing made good hta
word by trying to shoot them, but his
gun being out of order would uot so
off. This is what might be called
resisting the law with a vonjear.co.
The hunt last Friday proved a
success and alTorded considerable cpoit
for the boys. It was rather discourag

ed in shooting a few chick-a-doe birds.
But then when they arrived at the
Bapley House and saw the bounteous
ovster nipper served in fine style by
"mine host" they forgot all abou; th
hard day's work and the small count
they received for they immediately
fell too and partook of the good thing
set before them. Another hunt will
come cfE to-morrow when it is hoped
that it will be a bstter day, and moi
game brought to town. As we have
not the list cf counti at tho last hunt
we cannot give what each nun insde
only tho total. The captains chosen
wera: A. R. Frassr whoos side, receiv
ed 1,230 and J. C. Holden, 1.000, The?
same captains have bosu choson for
the next hunt.
