In many parts of the South wild geese
breeding is carried on for the benefit of
sportsmen, especially along the reed-
bound shores of Hyde county, X. C,
where vears ago some one wounded a
goose, bred from it and spread its pro
ducc inrougn tne district. Here are
goose yards, and as soon as a hunter
enters the yard the inmates know, like
dogs, that they are going hunting, and
squawk, fight and struggle to be the first
to be taken out and placed in the coop or
bag in which thev tire carried to the
grounds. Pieces of green tough-rooted
turf are cut and staked out in tour or five
inches of water, and a goose is tethered
to each stake and allowed to stand on
the sod. Thus placed the goose has the
ippearance of resting. The hunter re
tires to his blind to watch, not the sky
line, but the tethered geese. Suddenly
one stirs, another follows suit, a mullled
sound is made bv one, and then awav off
will he seen a streak of moving gray dots
which quickly develop into a flock, gan

rear. The birds drop well out of shot,
to see if the quality of the geese on the
Is permits a visit without loss of caste.
The goslings, heedless of social forms,
gaylv start forward to gossip with the
decoys, but the parents head them off,
colding, cackling with many modula
tions and much emphasis of tone, gab-
bliny wise saws and modern instances in

hildren since the world began, until
oradually the gander himself yields to
the clamorous gabbling of the deeoy
tlock, which has kept up a flood of prais-
of the choice feeding ground. He
lowlv drifts down with much import-
ince, his females behind, the youngsters
in their train. His eye is giueu on mat

what happens, he must wait until the
strangers paddle to one side or the other
of the decoys, and, failing that, he must
let his eh nice go by, for if once he fires
directly over the tethered birds thev get
nervous, and at the approach of stranger
flocks remember what happened, and,
showing fear, disturb and unsettle the
strangers. Firing to the side they do not
appear to mind, and the older birds who
have been out one or two seasons, when
they see the gun go up, "down charge"
like a veteran setter or pointer, on their
pieces of sod, chattering like parrots
after the wild birds are dropped. Tamed
geese have been used on Long Island and
other places, hut not so generally as in
On the great South bay. Long Island,
the geese are shot from quaint boats,
which are so designed that they will float
on water or may be pushed along on ice
by the occupant, having steel runners
underneath. When the geese are around,
the hunter in a while oversuit pushes
ofl' from shore and paddies over to the
floe, his impetus carrying him onto it.
Then with the iron-shod oar he pushes
over it, across the next open water and
the next floe, until he gets to the piece of
open water he aim.- at, far enough re
moved from the shore. Then he places
his stales, draws his white apron over
him, and, with his gun across his chest.
lies back in his boat to freeze until the
geese come, it any are around some are
generally bagged, but it is cold, hard
work. Nevertheless, the grounds could
not be reached by any other method, the
ice being too treacherous to bear an ordi
nary blind. This the geese appear to

whip. 4il want a better whip than them
I've got lately," said he. "I've been
buying 10-cent whips, hut now I want a
good one, a more expensive one."
"All right," said the storekeeper.
How will this one do for HO cents."
"Well, I dunno," replied the customer.
1 guess I'd better have one a little
cheaper than that." Then the store
keeper showed him one for 20 cents.
Xow, if you'll show me one about half
between this and a 10-ceuter I guess it'll
be just what 1 want," said the customer.
l'he storekeeper did so, and the custom

with his "more expensive" whip.
