The Globe is in receipt of the following communication : Florence, Idaho, Feb. 9, 1908. Grangeville Globe: I noticed in your issue of Jan. 15, the mention of bounty to be paid for hides of predar tory animals, of the large sum of §2. The lawmakers do not give us back woodsmen credit for having horse sense. Who would be willing to turn in a wolf skin worth from §12 to §15, or a lynx skin worth from §4 to §8 for the same, or even a bob-cat worth §3 to §5 for the bounty price? It is worth twice the bounty offered to locate the game wardens after killing the game. But we do not consider this a bounty; it is simply a graft of the Inner circles, which is proven by the fact that they will not accept pelts after April 1st, or when in poor condition. We have a few cougar, bear and martin in this county. Why not pay the enormous bounty price, §2, for those also? If it is not a graft why not punch holes in the ears or other wise mark them to show the bounty had once been paid, and leave the hides for the hunter to get market prices for? The above seems to be the opinion of all the hunters with whom I have talked. in of to a go Yours respectfully, H. G. Vincent.

The cattle that range in the steep hills of this country naturally feed around the places that are easiest of access first, and then if they are not watched they drift to some other place where grass is more plentiful and water easily obtained. Most of the ranchers of these range countries put up several tons of hay last fall in anticipation of the usual winter weather, which means snow and ice on the ranges. So far the winter has been very pleasant and but very little of the hay has been used. All winter the ranges have been free from the usual snow and ice and the herds have ranged over spots heretofore considered dangerous on account of the icy surfaces caused by the cold and stormy weather. During past winters, many heavy losses have been sustained by the stockmen, whose cattle, in grazing, have slipped from steep hillsides and rolled into the canyons below with fatal results. The stockmen say that with the spring grass coming on soon, many herds of cattle will be ready for ship ment in early summer. The live stock is already in good condition from pasturing on the ranges all win ter and all that is needed to shape them for market is a short time on new grass. Among the Churches Baptist.
