Pigeons are Very Plenty in Forest County

From some of the citizens of Jenks township, and the eastern part of the county, who are attending court, we learn that the pigeons are very plenty in that section, and netters are beginning to scoop 'em in quite lively. One man is said to have had close on a hundred dozen in his net but couldn't hold them, and all but 16 dozen got away. Another man scooped in 30 dozen at one strike. Some of our local "pigeoners" started for there yesterday morning. The pigeons will probably commence nesting about the middle of March.
