Multitudes of Pigeons Killed at Stokes County Roost

A writer in the Salem Press says it is estimated that from 500,000 to 1,000,000 pigeons have been killed at "the Roost" in Stokes county, N.C., and that there are millions still there. Powder and shot have been exhausted in that region, and the people are calling for more.
