“REVIVAL OF TRAPPING.” – The enormously high price of furs of all kinds has caused much attention to be paid to the old-fashioned occupation of trapping all over the country and right here in Jackson County, which is not remarkably populous in fur bearers. Some men follow trapping as a sideline to their regular work such as farming and stock-raising, and many boys have taken it up as a profitable source of income. The magazines published for boys these days are filled with advertisements for fur buyers who call attention of boys eloquently to the chance of making money in this way.
