Phew!  Phew!


Skunks are pervading Grantsville. 

Everyone from the Methodist preacher down to us common story tellers claims to have a nest under his domicile.

"Aunt Mag" Bennett who at 81 years is not as old as some folks who claim less years, has killed six of the variety that smells bad in her garden where they were killing small chickens and tearing down young roasting-ears. 

Her husband, "Uncle Jake" Bennett, was once one of the mightiest big-game hunters in this country.

  Age has dimmed his sight, but his wife carries on, and has done more towards eradicating pests in a few months than he ever did in a lifetime.

More power to "Aunt Mag" and her trusty steel traps. 

Maybe Grantsville will be a sweeter smelling place.
