To Ijnnd-Owiiow for Privilege of an
Occasional Trip for Hirds.
editor Koowoe Courier: j
A good many landlords in this
county aro posting their lands ?nd
giving trespass notices in your paper
forbidding ibo hunting or killing of
partridges. Will you permit me to
say a few words on the other side of
tins question?
I will nd m tl Ibat If partridges oat j
boll weevils they should not he killed
to any large extent. Hut do they out
the weevils? My contention ls thal
the partridges eat no more weevils
titan chickens eat potato hugs. I
have heard of one or two chickens
eating po'.a to bugs. Then why liol
got together and prevent the killing
of chickens if one has been known
to oat a potato bug. Partridges dp
not feed on hugs. They feed on seed '
and grain. One kind of seed they,
are particularly fond of is what some j
of us call "hogger lice." (io bird i
hunting now and see if you lind any
partridges in the cotton fields. No! j
You will (ind (hem in briar pa tidies. !
on creek banks and in stubble-llo!d.<. j
I have killed a got 1 many birds in
my life, and always lind seeds an I
grain in their craws. A bird could
not digest a tough boll weevil any-|
Any into sportsman will tell yo;:
that if lui nt eis are allowed to kill
partridges down to about four or live
to a covey there will be more hirds
lhere the next year than if none at
all had been killed. Heave a largo
covey untouched, and the next year
you will lind a smaller covey there
and no new-bred hirds. To leave
a large covey the roosters fight,
break up nests and prevent the
hens from hatching. 1 say any true
spoilsman will tell you that. Most
any man who hunts partridges is a
true sportsman because he is gener
ally as good a citizen as we hav?.
Take those who have bird dogs and
bunt birds in Oconee. aren't they all
good, truthful fellows? You know
they are as good citizens as we have
in the county. Not long ago this j
writer was hunting birds, and some 1
tenants came to me and said, "What
are you hunting-birds?" I told bim
I was, and he replied, "The owner of
this place don't mind you killing tho'
rabbits, but he don't want the birds
Now. is that right? Most any ne
gro you find hunts rabbits and rum*
over your land in wet woather and
damages your land, while the white
citizens of our county who hunt aro j
forbidden to go on tho same land be
cause they kill a few birds. Why j
should our farmers get so alarmed :
about this matter? Only about two
dozen men hunt birds in Oconee
county, and what birds they kill, 1 j
mn sure, you can find more in their
places next year, because, as I said
above, kill tho covey down to about I
four or five and you will have m-jro
birds next year.
He-ides, l lrds can only be killed
from Thanksgiving until March .st,
und we have to pay a license to do
that, and are not allowed to kill ov jr |
If) in any one day. 1 am a hunt r, !
?ind I ask the land-owners not to be .
too bard on us. Let us go ahead and I
kill a few birds. What wo kill can't j
hurt your cotton output one bit.
I noticed in tho Columbia State of
to-day (Dec. 14th) where a land
owner of Marion county wroto to
the State and inquired if it is true
that partridges eat boll weovils. The
State sent the letter to Dr. W. W.
Long, of Clemson College. Dr. Long
communicated with L. O. Howard,
chief of tho Bureau of Entomology,
Washington, I). C. Both Mr Howard
and Dr. Long stated that the part
ridge was a "negligible factor in
boll weevil control." They further
stated that what amount of weevils,
if any, the partridges ate would be
so small as not to be worth their it
tentlon, dur own County Demonstra
tion Agent, Mr. Hriggs, won't tell
you that partridges will eat the boll
weevils, or other weevils.
The boll weevil is a mighty bad
thing. I admit Hint ho should be
eradicated, hui it looks like a hard
ship, after a fellow hays a bird -log,
pays a dog lax for the benefit of the
schools, pays a license to hunt, and
then the farmers won't l t him hunt
because some one fellow claims tba;
a certain bird ate a few hell weevils
(perhaps by m isl a ko) one day. in
Ibo lower purl ol' thc Slate where tho
boll weevil has beeil for severn
years, they d? not mind one killing
partridges because they are convinc
ed that the birds do not eal Hie wee
vils. Those who have experimented
know that they dr. not eat them.
I am Just writing this as a prayer
to the land-owners to iel us go ahead
and kill some of (ho hirds, but don't
allow any ono to SLAUGHTER them.
The birds should ho pro looted, but
let's |)6 reasonable. Yours truly,

"Black-Draught is. in
my opinion, thc best liver
medicine on the market,"
states Mrs. R. H. White
side, of Keota, Okla. She
continues: "I had a pain
in my chest after eating
tight, uncomfortable feel
ing-and this was very
disagreeable sind brought
on headache. 1 was con
stipated and knew it was
indigestion and inactive
liver. 1 began the use of
Black-Draught, night and
morning, and lt sure is
splendid and certainly
gives relief."
For over seventy years
this purely vegetable
preparation has been
found beneficial by thou
sands of persons suffer
ing from effects of a tor
pid, or slow-acting liver.
Indigestion, biliousness,
colic, coated tongue, diz
ziness, constipation, bit
ter taste, sleeplessness,
lack of energy, pain in
back, puffiness under the
eyes-any or all ol ihese
symptoms often indicate
that there is something
the matter with your
liver. You can't be too
careful about the medi
cine you take. Be sure
that the name, "Thed
