Birds of Nebraska: Newspaper Accounts, 1854-1923

Game. - We are under many obligations to the Sportsman's Club of Omaha for a large consignment of fine, plump, fat, good looking "Esquimaux Curlew." This present reminds us of the advance of the sniping season when snipe, curlew, &c., fall before the clacking of the enthusiastic sportsmen's shot-guns; while we cannot but with the liveliest gratitude, consider their remembrance of newspaper folk, whose duties preclude the possibility of practising the healthful sport of the field.
