Carrier Pigeons

In accordance with the announcement made last week, Mr. H.A. Graham liberated about four hundred carrier pigeons at the depot last Sunday morning at five o'clock. Notwithstanding the earliness of the hour, there was quite a crowd of people at the depot to witness the freeing of the birds. Some of the birds arrived in Washington within ten hours after they were turned loose. Not all of them went away, but about a half a dozen of the stayed around town all day Sunday.
