    "It is absolutely necessary, if fish are to remain in our streams in any considerable number, that some effective effort should be made on the part of our people to prevent the fish from entering the numerous irrigating ditches of this county. The spectacle of a farmer finding forty pounds of trout floundering about in his meadow is a sight to make a true sportsman weep. It has been suggested that if our farmers and ditch managers would put a wire screen over the intake of their respective ditches, the evil would soon be remedied; otherwise it is only a question of time when our streams will be almost entirely depopulated of its speckled beauties."

    "On last Monbay night, at a late hour, a hobo slyly entered the saloon of E. W. Dooley and carried of the nickel-in-the-slot machine which sat in the front part of the house. In a few minutes J. D. McDaniel, the bartender, missing the machine, and suspecting who the thief was, started in hot pursuit and in a few minutes caught sight of the thief at the depot.

He is reported to have said, that Epigram, which exclusively publishes the record, was a nasty little sheet, that amounted to nothing. Well! well! If that be true, why did the gentleman stop to discuss us; or find it necessary to whitewash Baker's record?"
