SETTING RABBIT TRAPS
Ralph G. Runion 13
I begin to set my rabbit traps about the first of December and
continue to set them till after Christmas. I bait the traps with apples or cabbage and
sometimes with both.
I eat the rabbits, which I catch until the merchants begin to buy
them, then I sell them.
On Christmas morning, I went to look at my rabbit traps, but instead
of finding a rabbit in my trap, to my great surprise I found I had caught a large opossum.
I of course killed him and sold his hide which brought me seventy five cents.
