Coyote Club to Hold Meeting at Eddyville June 3 Eddyville Man Sends Out Invi tation to All Coat, Sheep and Poultry Raisers to Attend Meeting. The Leader is in receipt of a letter from W. J. Cllne of Eddyville asking all people interested to the extermina tion of the destructive coyote, such as those who raise sheen, goats or poultry, to attend a meeting of the Coyote Club to be heid in that village on Saturday, June3. Mr. Cllne says that unless some drastic action is taken many people will be forced out of the above named industries, not being able to combat the pest single handed. His letter in part is as follows: ''Sheep and goat men, chicken and turkey misers the time is coming when the old red hen can't hatch a brood of chickens in the fence corner and the turkey gobbler will have 'to change his roost from the fence to a high limb in the trees; the goats no longer can make their bed grounds on the high knobs of the goat haven country of Lincoln county and grazing sheep are constantly in danger. Why because the coyotes' are increasing in such numbers that unless some thing is done we will all be bankrupt through the destructlveness of this preying pest. I repeat it again, if something Is not done in the way of concerted action against the coyote the coming summer the sheep and goat industries in Lincoln county will be no more. "Be at the meeting in Eddyville on Saturday, June 3, and let's see If we can't get together and make things hot for the coyote.
