A small flock of sage hens were discovered on W. E. Bradshaw's back yard fence by Mr. Brown one day this week, but not having a gun, he slipped away and informed his friend Mr. Tally, who would have violated one of Pasco's municipal laws had it not been for his wife who rushed out just in time to inform him that they were Mrs. Bradshaw's stuffed birds she had sunning on the fence while she was cleaning house.
