The long \\lntor \ , although thcro has been
but short ami infrequent spells of inclainciit
weather , is about over nt last , mul the spring
wild fowl shooting will open up shortly , 'iho
sportsmen are all busy discussing the pros ,
pats mid the uuuiiinous opinion seems to bo
tlmt the shooting will bo good. Thc.v was
plenty of lend loft our fioin last fall anil
with nn abundance of water tills spring , anil
tliero Is every likelihood that thcro will bo ,
tlio birds will return to their favorite
fcnimts In largo numbers. While tlie state
ment holds good that tbew will bo plenty of
attractive feed for the ducks , wlio sulblst
chiefly upon the seodsofaeimntlc plants , smart

not bo so ivitli thrt RCOSO. They feed princi
pally In tilt com Holils uiid stubble , anil It Is
a wcll.kno'.vn fact that the cereal crop hi this

still not to such AD extent a ? to wholh iloprlvo

The nia'lurds ' ami pintails have nlro.ulj
begun to drop In at iho cpon nii'.ois , and tlio
Impatient gunners arc all In iillui ry of activ
ity. Guns are being tlcnniM up , hunting
clothes hauled forth , xvadors put in order ,
boats overlooked , and In fact everything
done that will warrant a Juiiiptngout on tin
llrst train at n moment's notice.
And what iv cranil andhenllh-gniiig ; llfo is
this outdoor life of the snort-men , who have

And what is grander or moio uxhllniatiiifj
than n tnp to the lakes and rivers ami

along some toituous slouch , or a morning and

The Omaha ICpiinel club held its regular

President .John T. I'.vans In tlio chair. After
calling the meeting to onlor , Hio secretary
was lequested to read over the list of appli
cants who ha\o applied for admission blnco
tlio last mooting , ami some eight or ton now
members were accepted. Ovlng to the absence <
sonco of some of the members , who were un
avoidably hold out ot the city on business ,
only part of the monthly business was trans
acted and the meeting continued to Tuesday ,
March 17. On a motion of some of the inoin-
b rs for a regular club room , the president
appointed three of the members to attend to
the routing of a suitable place , wheio the
members can moot nt anv time or entertain
any of tbo doggy men who may happen to
visit our city In this connection , It must bo
remembered that the club meetings tune

OMAHA , .March 13. To the Sporting Editor
oITm : ) ; : ; The necessity of n poultry and
pigeon chih In this flity Is dally becoming
ii'lt , and it I * only a matter of n short tlmo
when such an association ! ! ! force itself on
UH. Now that spring Is at hand would it not
IM a % vise suggestion to all levers of pure
broil poultry in this city and surrounding
country to make a stiirt In this matter and
organize such an association , I am sure there
nro plenty of fanciers In Omaha to make t
good start. It Is a remarkable fact that out
of Iho largo list of exhibits made at the hue
loultry and pet stock show given by the I < 'o-
jiaska association last November in this city ,
.hero were but n few owned by parties In
Dmaha. There were entries fiom ml o\er \
: ho custom country , and the little town of
J'opckn , Kan. , had chartered a car for their
Dlrds alone , istho nutter with Omaha ,
nro there nocliicKcii men hero ! A city \\itli
such a population must h.ivo moro or less
men Mho lo\o tlno fowls. Ueside- , there is
moro money with loss labor In tills hobby
than any oilier 1 can tlnnlj of , for the cuullal
laiil out. There are hundreds of business men
In these United States wbo are j early inaking
thousands of dollars , outside of their regular
business or occupation , in breeding line fowls.
1 might mention a few of the many. Tliero
Is ( JnptaihVluto , superintcniKint of ttio
United States mill service at Chicago , once
an old rlti/cn of Omaha , vho has
been breeding 1'lj mouth Kecks , Houilans ,

icach well up Into the thousands In a year.
Sid Conger , slcciff of Shelby county , In

says nil he has and owns today hns been
made by poultry. This includes u line farm
with blooded cattle on it. Cieorgo T. i'ltkin
of Chicago and hundred * of others uuoso
nnujoj 1ill 1 not mention , could tell the same
itory. But some will sav , 0 , that's the
use , thoicaro too many raising lluo poultry
already , it don't ' u.iy. lliere'awhere you
are mistake" , Tliero is ahvnys room for
moio. If vou don't bellevo it , Just try It one
season and it will have paid you so well that
you will not give it up. Anil it is only those
who ha\o tried It that know this. Your
naino will look Just as well in a poultry piper
as thsoo eastern men's , who are getting the
money for eggs and chicks that you should
linvo. You have no iilo.i how pleasant It is
to icccivo&S or $ ' 5 for just ouo setting of eirgs
thut cost you hardly H ) cents , and f 1 tofT > fern
