Gailen and Glen Rhoden were in

while here Gale related a little of his
experience as a trapper this fall on
me i arm. tie naa noticed some
strange looking tracks near a straw
stack in one of the fields, and decided
that he would try out his luck with a
few traps to see if it was possible t
land the animal that was prowling
around the farm. Gale set the traps
all right, and lo and behold, the next
morning there were two nice fat opos
sums in the traps and the secret of
what was making the tracks was
solved. This good luck decided Galen
to make further efforts, and a number
of traps were placed along the creek
that flows through the farm, with the
result that several muskrats and a
racoon was added to the list of vic
tims, as well as a fine specimen of
the mink that was snared in one of
the traps. The success of Mr. Rhoden
in the trapping line led him to pre
pare to set out a number of others and
he is in hopes of being able to secure
several other 'possums, that will fur
nish the chief feature of a fine feast
Gale has not had much experience in
trapping but is coming right along.
