On Friday night two fine Pekin pullets were killed. Each was to have been exhibited at the bench Bhow ; they were valuable birds. In dications were that a .skunk was the slaughterer, and Mr. Hibbs set a trap for the odoriferous assassin. The trap was set near the hen-house and when visited Monday morning it was not empty. "One of the big gest skunks I ever saw was there," said Mr. Hibbs. "I'll bet it weighed at least 15 pounds." A shot gun was secured, and that particular skunk will now kill no more chickens.
