The South Lyou Picket celebratetl its third birthday by coming out as does the buttcrcup and dandelion - all in yellow - on the 29th uit. The Picket ia a good, live local paper, and keeps fully abreast of the times. The Norwich, (N. Y,) Telegraph says that if the Wholesale slaughter of birds cannot deter every woman f rom encouraging the foolish fashion of trltnmiug her hat with the victiins, the cruel manner in which the birds are killed must shock every true-hearted woman into such result. To preserve the beautiful lustre of the plumage, the skin is stripped froin the bird while vet alive ; and to Il├║strate, the paper quotcs this from a gentleman writingon the subject: In Loulsville I saw a man caichi ng tbe snulhern red blrds in a trap. He sklnned them alive before my eyes. He was pald flfty cents each for the skins. Every red blrd I have seen since. In milliner'e shops or in church or in the street, has recalled tbat blear-eyed man bloody handed amld the aweet fragrunce aud song of that peaceful orchard. Every satiny bird-breast worn on a woman's Uat is torn from a living heart.
