Blalock says  that a complete sweep of the island  ���������can be made,  the men in! the widest  part  of .the  island  not  exceeding 30  feet apart,  and  thus  they can  traverse   its- entire length,   a distance   of  six     miles,    in  a manner, that  will  make it practically  impossible for a  rabbit to escape.  At the drive on Febfttiary !) there  was not a suHicieiit number to fui'm  a complete line across the island and  the rabibils escaped in large numbers  and I he foreman of the. island says  they are now even more plentiful in  places,- than  before the last drive.  Military rules will be observed in  the formation of the line, which will  he fully, explained to each hunter, and  thus all danger will he averted.
