Mr. John Smith of Keeno, never
tires of talking to his old ncuualnt

remembers nothing of the past but
bis fishing expeditions, away back

on all sides by a dense forest. lie

women folks built the lire, nnd
would be back by the time the frying
pan was hot with fish enough to feed
a large family all dny, fisli averag

enticed to tnste of the death-dealing
bait, or to get in range of nn old

for emergency, but as Mr. Uennie
doesn't use tobacco in any form, it's
bard for him to keep his nerves
steady enough to relate some of his
thrilling experiences in trapping,
hut he will give us something in the
near future.

snow banks in this vicinity very
much. It was rumored that if the

no team would be able to make the
trip, but at present everything looks
favorable for an early spring nnd
no serious floods.
During the past winter moro
horses have been injured than usual

of snow, making it difficult for
teams to travel on the highways.
