  • JACK RENNIE went fishing yesterday up the river in company with his son William and Bert Winnie. While the party was prospecting around for a likely place, they left the lunch, minnows and their rods standing in a barnyard, trusting the chickens that were browsing about, to have honor enough to leave things alone. When they returned, Mr. Rennie discovered that a big rooster had taken the bait on his hook and was having a party all by himself. Will Rennie at the same instant found that the others had eaten all the minnows while Bert Winnie discovered that all the lunch except one bix onion had helped toward making Sunday dinners. Nevertheless, 10 trout were brought back to Traverse City.

Would a judge or any person, give a legal, lawful law abiding fish to a cat? It is inconveivable [sic].
