Pompergili's narah just back cf the
! graveyards, and these gunnels are now
< killing reed birds, sora and black-birds
I wbich will not bein season till Septen -

the law, but it is dangerous to life to
, these who visit lhe cemeteries early oo
j St'nday morning. It should be stopped.
? The ordinRiice on the subject is $20 fine
. for anyone who temoves a gun from his
' premises cn tbe Sabbath dsy.
