INJURED BY A BARBED WIRE FENCE.
—On last Friday George Neff, of Lib-
erty township, had to shootone of his
most valuable horses. It had become
entangled in a barb wire fence and was
so badly injured that shooting was nec-
essary to end its sufferings.
Ephraim Fisher, who tarms the Ar-
mor farm just east of town, recently had
a horse permanently maimed by being
torn in a barbed fence.
ANGLERS AND THEIR SPORT.—It has
now been nearly two weeks since the
enthusiastic follower of Izaak Walton,
with rod and tackle, found himself along
his favorite stream impatiently waiting
the first bite of the first trout of the sea-
son. - It seems with the growing scarcity
of the speckled beauties there is a grow-
ing pentitude of devotees of the rod and
line. Every year the number increases
and fishing becomes more truly sport.
For as the streams are annually veritably
stripped of their piscatorial habitants it
it is little else than genuine sport to
fish for trout.
In years gone by it was not at all an
unusual thing for a man to take anvordi-
nary pole, with the cheapest kind of a
hook without troll, and catch more trout.
in a day in any of our mountain
streams, than he could carry home. In
truth we have record from the diary of
Hon. J. H. Holt’s father, that while he
was working on a well, in 1820, near
Salt Works—now Salt Lick, Clearfield
Co.,—the men stopped one morning and
went trout fishing. In a few hours they
had caught more, in weight, than they
could carry. Such is not the trouble,
now-a-days. If a person is able to hook
several pounds, after a bard days work.
with the most improved tackle, and
appetizing bait, bebas done well.
Though the streams are all pretty
well fished out, we still see nice baskets
full of trout occasionally and within the
past week hundreds have been caught
from Spring Creek and Logans branch
that measured considerably more than
eleven inches. Such catches must
eventually deplete these streams unless
something is done to replenish them.
The Pennsylvania Fish Commission
has done much in recent years to make
this condition of things possible by the
replenishing of fished-out streams. Re-
cently it sent its car out from the Corry
hatchery loaded with 193,000 young
trout for distribution, divided as follows
among the various counties: West-
moreland, 32,000; Cambria, 45,000;
Huntingdon, 8,000; Blair, 5,000 ; Jeffer-
son, 7,000; Clearfield, 66,000; Centre
6,000 ; Warren, 12,000, and Crawford,
12.000. The Allentown hatchery has
done its share toward restocking the
streams of the eastern counties.
The game laws also provide that the
catching of speckled troutsave only by
rod, hook and line,at any tine, is illegal.
Fishing in newly stocked streams is also
prohibited, as is the taking of any trout
under five inches long. Should the
angler hook any such he is required to
put them back in the water or subject
himself to a $20 penalty.
Many persons do not know the law on
the question of “stocked streams’ so we
take the liberty of publishing the fol-
lowing from an exchange, bearing di-
rectly on the question. “Most of the
streams in this vicinity bave been stocked
by the state fishery commission, and
portions of the streams into which the
spawn bas been put are claimed “private
streams’’ by the persons through whose
land the water flows. In accordance
with an opinion recently handed down
in the Supreme Court by Judge Sterrett,
streams are not private unless the fish
are propagated, which means that screens
must be used in the stream.
In the first place the spawn must be
kept separate, then the small fish are
put into another screen cell, and so on
until they are large enough to take care
of themselves. Even then they are to be
kept within a larger screen cell: if the
party who raises them wants to own
them. Only so much of that stream is
private as is within the screens placed
there by the owner.
The case in question was Bensccter vs,
Long, Luzerne, county. A continuous
stream divided the land of these men.
The plaintiff put a lot of small trout into
the stream, and when they had be-
come large enbugh the defendant fished
them out. Suit was brought and the
plaintiff said it was a private stream as
the dividing line ran more than balf
way across the stream. It was shown
1 things described bere, is not ‘unbroken.
that the plaintiff did not propagate the
fish, but merely put them into the stream |
to get along as best they could. No
stream is private unless the propagation
1s carried on as previously stated. A
pond surrounded by the owner’s land,
without any continuous flow, can be
called a private pond.
Judge Sterrett in the syllabus of the
case says : “It the waters of a pond
cover a large surface of land, and a
person whose lands are covered only by
a part of the water, places fish therein
for the purpose of propagation, the pond
does not thereby become a private pond,
within the meaning of the act of June
8, 1878 Neither is a notice that ‘all
persons are hereby notified nat to trespass
on these lands or fish in this pond,under
the .penalty of the law,’ a sufficient
notice under the act of June 3, 1878;
either to strangers or to neighbors.”
He continues that : “The mere plac-
ing of fish in & pond, without any im-
provement whatever for the propaga-
tion of game fish, is insufficient to
place the pond within the protection
of the act of June 3, 1878.”
