sportsmen from a distance northern gen
tlemen would make their appearance
among us at an early day to bag our par

ers, and our own sportsmen as well, ought
always to know upon whose land they
are hunting, and whether the wholesale
destruction of the birds is agreeable to
the owner. I am one of those who think
(and there are others like me) that the
birds on my place are as exclusively my
property as my barn-yard fowh; that if
there is any pleasure in shooting them I
ought to enjoy it; that ir there is any
plpasure in eating them that pleasure
ought to be mine ; that if I see proper to
enjoy these pleasures with my friends the
professional bird hunter ought to give me
a chance to. With their trained dogs and
breech-loading guns they can very quick
ly and thoroughly cleanrthem out, and do
it generally, unless the proprietor drops
his work and warns oft the successive
hunter and this involves often loss of
time and temper. Then, let all hunters
ascertain whether they are welcome. I
