TO SAVE ANIMALS
BERLIN SOCIETY STRIVING FOR AN
DETAILED PLAN IS PRESENTED
Public Will Be Asked to Co-operate With
Humanitarians in the
SY ASSOCIATED PRESS.
Berlin, Aug. a6.-The Berlin Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is
taking the initiative in attempting to
bring about an international understanding
on the subject of cruelty to animals and
birds in Italy and aims to secure the sup
port of Italian societica and with the co
operation of the Italian government. The
plan is as follows:
Conspicuous tin signs will be placed on
the railroad cars asking travelers to aid
in suppressing fearful cruelty to animals
and birds in Italy by complaining to the
mayor or other officials of the place where
the acts of cruelty occur.
An illustrated circular will also be dis
tributed among the travelers explaining
the facts as they exist, and the travelers
will be requested to aid in the movement
by refusing to eat song birds at the hotels
and boarding houses, by refusing to buy
song birds for children, by looking under
the saddles of horses and mules for
wounds ,before renting such animals and
by refusing to give tips to drivers who
abuse their animals.
The Berlin society will ask the kindred
organizations in Europe and America to
cooper` t with it in this work.
The Northern Pacific railway now offer a
reward of two thousand five hundred dollars
