Ernest White and wife have just returned from Somers, Montana, where they have been living for the last few years and will now make their home on the White farm at Millburn. Mr. White's parents will spend the winter in the south.
It is an interesting fact that Mr. White brought home with him two deer as pets. So far as known they are the only deer in Lake county. It was necessary for Mr. White to get a special permit from the state game warden of Montana before they could be removed from that state. They were sent by express. Both of them are very young and were placed in captivity shortly after they were born so that they are almost as gentle as domestic animals and will eat out of one's hand.
Mr. White has erected a ten foot wire fence around a portion of the farm and has made a deer park for them. After a while he intends to enlarge it. The deer will run wild all winter, their only shelter being a shed in the inclosure. Already many people have been to see the deer and Mr. white allows all who wish to see them.
