Notes or transcript:  “A correspondent in an agricultural paper suggests that this winter, after all other birds are gone, everybody make an effort to poison English sparrows. It would be an excellent idea, and by a united effort lots of them would be killed. A small scaffold could be put up, and by feeding them poisoned wheat or kaffir corn they could be killed by the thousands. They are the worst pest we have, not excepting chinch bugs, and we suggest that we make a united effort this winter to destroy all of them we can.”
