of enthusiasm for the out of doors, in

Some two or three months ago the
southwestern sections of Gaston
county and the upper part of York
county were much disturbed by re
ports of a wild 'varmint' at large
iu that section of the country. Some
said it was a catamount, others de
clined it nothing but a dog running
at large. Of late there has been
not Ding heard of on that side of the
river. Something like it has, how
ver, appeared in the Providence sec
tion of .Mecklt nburg county, accord
ing to the following from the Char
A group of Charlotte hunters may
form a part and go out to Providence
township to run down the strange
animal that has been causing muc.i
talk among people residing on boih
sides of Four Mile creek, in Provi
dence township. It is likely the idea
will oe carried out Wednesday night
Referring to the report that the
dogs of 'possum hunters have refused
to run the "varmint," but leave the
brush and come back to crouch in
fear at the hunters' feet, one hunter
has made the suggestion that a pack
of airedalcs be taken and turned in
"If two or three airedales don't
bring that beast out of the woods
and swamps of Four Mile creek. 1
will pay all tho xpenses of the ex
pedition out there," said Jim Hous
ton, hunter and admirer of the nire
dale strain of dogs.
The- description given or the ani
mal's appearance by Providence citi
zens in the city answered in a gen
eral way the description of a panther,
although most of the people of the
neighborhood, reatizlng how long it
has been since a panther, which is
native to North Carolina, has been
seen in this section, believe it must
be a wildcat, or a catamount.
The two close-up views of the
beast, as reported by reliable and
trustworthy citizens, indicate that, ln-
p-tead of having the stumpy tail of
the catamount, or bobcat, it has the
long tall of the panther, the tiger
or the wildcat and turns up at the
end In true cat fashion, or else Is
carried straight out behind.
The report that Kd S tinsel shot at
the beast and had a specially good
opportunity to see it was confirmed
by persons in Charlotte Wednesday.
He is quoted as saying that he was
within ten or twelve feet of the ani
mal and fired at it three times with
a pistol, which he had been carry
ing in hope that lui might run across
it. He 'Is quoted as saying that he
hit the animal twice because at each.
of the first two shots it Jumped high
in the air and hounded over a hedge
anjl fence at the third shot and dis
appeared In the underbrush. Luther
Sijuires Is another reliable man who
has seen the animal. I Iu. came upon
it nt a turn of the road and had a
good view of It before it took fright
and ran In the busTies. His descrip
tion also Indicates that the animal
is either a wildcat or a panther. If
it is a wildcat, it must be the largest
one ever seen In this part of North
Carolina, Mr. Squires thinks.
The Partridge mid Hie Mail Carrier.
While I was a passenger in a mail
carrier's automobile on, ono of his
trips, says a contributor to the Bos
ton Transcript, I witnessed a curious
Incident in which a bird was the chief
It occurred on one of the highways
of Maine where the road was very
narrow, with woods on either side.
The driver stopped the car and called
my attention to a partridge that was
coining toward us. "She," as the
driver called the bird, walked slowly
along the ro;;d close to'the car, turn
ing her pretty brown head lo glance
up at the driver. Then, after going
oji a yard or two, she came back,
turning her head to give the driver
another glance as she -went by. I was
curious to know what was on her
mind, but the mail could not be de
layed, and we want oik
The carrier told me that this was
the second summer of their com
panionship; for the previous year he
had noticed a partridge do the same
thing at the same place, and he was
convinced that It was the same biid.
So they grew to be old friends, and
their meetings are very likely a pleas
ant break in the monotony of de
livering the mall.
How Will You Have Your Owl?
Can, you eat an owl? A correspond
ent of Fur News confidently asserts
that you can. ,
I read of a boy, he says, who Rhot
an owl and sent a letter to an editor,
asking him whether owls were good
to eat. If he had asked me, I should
have told him that they were very
good when cooked.
At a taxidermist shop In Newark,
New Jersey, which was owned by a
German whom I knew, there were
tw-Q or throe carcasses of large fat
owls on the table one day when some
of the owner's neighbors happened
to come in.

Your sympathetic cry of "Save the
Recorder's Court! Long live the Re
corder! ! Long live the Recorder's
court. ! ! ' is both pathetic and beau
tiful; but. in these times of ueiution
and money stringency, tax payers
want facts and not rhetoric. Iu sub
stance, you ofler three reasons why
the city should continue to submit
to an injustic in the form of double
taxation. (1) The Recorder's court iJ
self-sustaining any way; 1 2 ) that a
Mayor's court would Maive the Re
corder's court out of ixisteiici; and
i'ii live unnamed law .vers are haid
hearted enough to jce it perish with
out a tear.
In th" first place, you say that
during the lisci.l year ending June
1, 1920, the salaries of the Record
er, the sub-recorder and the prose
cuting attorney amounted to $15S,
while the city and county's share of
the costs, imposed on those convicted
iu the court, was $1713.82, or
$131.98 "above the cost of opera
tion." While the salaries, accord
ing to the figures furnished me by
the city treasurer, for the time stated,
amounted to $1627.00, and while I
am sure that you have made a seri
ous mistake as to the costs collected.
nevertheless I will take your figures
and try to locate the "profits" to tho
(a). The "co.-,t of operation' was
by far more than $1588, the mere
salaries of the recorder and solicitor.
How much, do you suppose, was paid
for the time of thoe who ran down
and arrested the criminals, looked
up the evidence and subpoenaed the
witnesses iu the c.ise? Who paid
the salaries of the officers who furn
ished work for the court? Who paid,
for a court offlrer to keep order, to
execute the judgments ot the court,
to look after witnessi s, etc? Our
policemen are paid $6.:00 per ear
by he city, to look after the enforce
ment of the criminal laws iu Mon
roe. The chief is court officer and
he is paid $1800 per year. While
he is not -hi engaged all the tiiuci,
ho Is engaged in the court as much
as ,i reMird"r and solicitor, and his
time is as costly a-. both of theirs.
Neither nre the recorder and solici
tor so engaged all the time. The
sit-i on Mondays and Fiulays
and the sessions rarely last longer
than noon, and the average cost of
the recorder and solicitor, for each
day in session. Is more than $1S.

court and solicitor, Monroe, as a
city, paid 5794, and then more than
