Mrs. A. LaForge Dead

Mrs. W. I. Land Dead
Last Wednesday morning at this place, Mrs. W. I. Land died from a complication of troubles, after an illness of some time.

The Bulletin calls the attention of the sheep and goat men of the County to the article in this issue by Troy Brooks, in reference to trapping in Burnet  County.  Mr. Ed Magill is the trapper, who has been at work for about one month, and his record of five or six wolves in that time is a good one.  Ross Graves is the other trapper that will go to work first of March.  Mr. Brooks states very clearly why the sheep and goat men of this County cannot afford to be indifferent to this matter. 

It is very natural to presume that wolves will be run out of counties where they have trappers, and they are sure to take refuge where they are safest from their enemy, man.

We understand that a few nights ago, in a part of the county that had not been bothered by wolves for five or six years, eight or ten sheep were killed at one time by these animals. 

We haven't any sheep, but have been thinking for some time of purchasing a small flock, and when we do, it will afford us much pleasure to join the organization in Burnet County.
