Gunners and Nimrods After Pigeons in Pennsylvania

Messrs. Marshall, Miller and Feldman were out gunning on Thursday, and brought home nineteen pigeons, and they were not numerous on that day either. — Chambersburg Opinion.

Mr. Harry Strickler, determined that his Chambersburg acquaintances should not bag more pigeons than he could, one morning of last week, in company with those Nimrods, J.C. Postlethwaite and E.H. Marshall started for the woods. They returned in the evening not "ladened with burnished spoils," but with pigeons, having succeeded in bagging 107. Hand over the belt.
