Trout nml Turkey In Vrt Virginia.
Cnmpltig along somo stream, or occupy
ing a rudo cabin with a hospitable native,
you have but to listen, Just at dawn, to
bear tlio early calls of tho turkeys, still on
tholr roosts. Then If you aro not skillful
enough to cither steal within gunshot or
call somo proud gobbler, by well dissem
bled turkoy call, near enough to lay him
low, you have no business to bo wlicro
such sport awaits you. Ilrook trout and
wild turkoy In combination nro worth nil
tlio trouble It takes to get where thoy aro.
Snipo shooting is tlio earliest sport in tlio
lino of gunning tho country has, except
tho shooting of wild fowl on their illght
from tho southern feeding places, and that
has conio to lie but llttlo better than fugi
tivo sport nowadays. Kngllsh suipo nro
easily next to woodcock in wariness and
cnpriclousnessof (light, and being well dis
tributed over the country, wherever marshy
or boggy land provides them with n Held
for sustenance, shooting them is a popular
sport. Theso birds begin their Illght north
ward in March and sometimes earlier, and
a hunter with a good gun and, equally Im
portant, a good dog II nds snipo shooting in
April and Maya particularly enlivening
sport. But all early spring outdoor sports
aro so much at tlio caprice of tlio weather
at that changeablo nnd uncertain time of
year that their popularity must necessarily
depend mora on tho ability of tho sports
man to withstand discomfort and fre
quently hardship than it does ou tho ex
citement of tho sport Itself.

It sounds like tho most monstrous exag

a single glass Is worth (500,000, yet that is
tho fabulous value at which the ancient
Hudeshclmer of Uremen is appraised. Only
ono largo cask of this precious beverage,
which dates from 1058, remains. It is never
sold, but on presentation of a doctor's cer
tificate tho sick of 11 re men aro allowed a
small quantity. Threo pci-Muis only liavo
been honored by gifts of tiny bottles of tho
rare boverugo Emperor Wlllinin I, his son
Frederick and Princo Histuarck. Tho
