Perfllado is taught in the public

handkerchiefs , tablecloths , bedspreads

The game warden has called our
ittention to the fact that many
have been disregarding the game
laws and have been both seining
cjame fish and shooting young
chickens. The hunting law does
not open until September 1st and
steps have been taken to carefully
watch people engaged in unlawful
hunting. It seems that people
would begin to see that game laws
ire for their benefit , rather than
inyone else. The present num
bers of wild game insures continu-
il hunting if the law is but obeyed.
However , if the law is disregarded
ind the young chickens killed off ,
then it will be but a short time
until they become extinct.

believe they will "hae nae cause

Apropos of knee breeches a corre
spondent of the London Express quotes
an anecdote from Captain Gronow's
"Recollections" which puts the whole
case in a nutshell. The baillie < le fer-
rette was always dressed in knee
breeches , with a. cocked hat and. a
court sword , the slender proportions
of which greatly resembled those of
his legs. "Do tell me , my dear bail-
lie , " said Moutrond one day , "have you
got three legs or three swords ? " Soon

baillie went home.
There had been a railway collision
near a Scottish country town , and an
astute local attorney had hurried to
the scene of disaster. Noticing an old
man with a badly damaged head lying
on the ground , he approached him with
notebook in hand. "How about dam
ages , my man ? " he began. The in
jured man waved him off with the re
mark : "Na , na ; ye'll get nae damages
fae me. It wasna me that hit yer
bloomin' auld train. "

"Do you think there is anything re
markable in love at first sight ? " asked
n romantic youth.
"Not at all , " replied his cynical
friend. "It's when people have been
looking at each other for four or five
years that it becomes remarkable ! "
