At midnight the portals which shut this magic king dom off from the workaday world swing silently open. At dawn the little people of the realm begin to troop into it. Little pattering feet, funny little forms chid in night- clothes swarm through the open gates of the Kingdom of Christmas and take possession for the day. The horns blow, the rattles sound, the drums beat, ra tions of sugar plums and comfits aro served out to the pa-jama-clad. army. Chariots, carts, donkeys and automo biles speed across the carpeted plains, and the reicn of the children revels itself out to a sleepy end at nightfall', with dolls and swords clasped in hands which cling on after the I'ATItONIXK THK .MAN who aivi:utihi:h Albert Wood was In from hln farm In thu Ityu (Irass district Thursday and reports that his neigh bor, 0.

In connection with this subject wo glvo tho resolution: WIIKItlOAS; It Iiiib been called to the attention of tho voters that In tho pnst year Malheur County has paid bounties for coyotes in tho total sum of more than $8,000 and whore iih It has bueu demonstrated that thu bounty system Is entirely Inndo iiuato to moot the problem presented by tho prcsenco of coyotes, nud WhoronB, tho work of tho U.

Three hundred rabbits in ono night at a cost of less than' $2.00 Is a demonstration mnde by tho two bays In chargo of thu rabbit poison ing campaign last Monday night. This wnn under favorablo weather conditions but tho poisoning might hnvo bueu more effective hud tho hay stack boon properly fenced. Thin kill was mado at tho A. C. Welcomo ranch Just below town. Tho ono ounco of poison wan distrib uted on Monday evening nnd tho dead rabbits weru gathered. up the following morning. Tho boys worn aided In gathering them up by a rep resentative of this paper and County Judgo Farro. Tho Tlmes-Hcrnld hnn ndvoraod this method of extermination of tho rabbit post from tho first tlmo tho subject was dlscujfpd. It in ibu most effective and cheapest plan und v.ould bo ontlroly successful If pro pel ly handled and thn pooplo would tako an Intorest. Ot course it I realized there Ii n wldo territory over which thu rabbits may roam whoro no one is living but at thla tlmo of year and with snow covering tholr usual feud tho rabbits congre gate around hay stacks where thoy may bo poisoned. Tho kill of lust Monday night demonstrates tho pos sibility In connection with thii meth od. If people would work at It, unnlt rancher bu ready .with hln polso'i at thu proper time, put It nut nud k' p. It up for a short time thu number of rabbits that would escape would be negligible. . Tho argument Is advanced that the poisoning method in not good for this county because of tho nmnll pop ulation; at thin date practically all thu rabbits are rougregntcd around feeding places nnd with a largo force of men could be practically oxtor mlnated within two weeks. It In a pity the Biological Survey In not ablo to put men In tho Held fur thin pur pose but It should not be necessary.

The Tlmos-lloruld regrets thr a d'sposltlou khown by some to not co-operato with the poisoning at this time, evidently because of the fact that on January 1st a bounty of five conts will bo paid for rabbits. Tito two men eugagdd In tho poisoning cumpulgnturo covering what terri tory they can In thin vicinity, but there nru places whoro a greater number of rabbits could ho killed If thu owners of tho places would glvo their permission and aid In thn work.
