STILL HOLD ANCIENT COURT
Judicial Tribunal Eetabllimad Seven
Hundred Years Ago In England
Among the courts of ancient origin
In Great Britain a most interesting
one still exists at Bristol, the last ene
remaining of the Pied Poudre courts
which were established more than 700
years ago at places where large fairs
were held, lasting very often for more
than a fortnight, nnd attended by for
eigners. The courts were provided,
especially If the fair was at ft sea
port town, to deal with differences of
opinion which were likely to arise be
tween people who could not under
stand each other's speech. The
Stranger, In such a case, would find
himself In a sorry plight.
Courts were therefore established
so that complaints from those who
were staying In the city for the fair
or passing through without making
any long stay, coutd be dealt with,
and were called Courts of Pied
Poudre or Dusty Feet from the dusty
feet of the traveling bagmen and ped
dlers whom lt was intended to help.
In time Pied Poudre became Pye
Powder court, and under that name
was held once again in Bristol this
autumn for a fortnight The Recorder
presided. The court was opened in
accordance with ancient custom in the
market place which adjoins tho Guild
hall for convenience. Although the
number ?*f complaints were few the
court remained sitting for the full 14
days as lt had done century after cen
tury. Thither the dusty feet can turn
of those who feel they have a
grievance, sure that attention will be
given to their plaint
WILD GAME IS INCREASING
Measures That Hava Baan Instituted
for Thair Protection Have Had
Under the protecting care of the bu
reau of biological survey, United
Sutes Department of Agriculture, big
game on government reservations has
multiplied fast. The animal census
shows 608 buffalo on such reservations
now, as compared with 207 five'years
ago; 004 elk, as compared with 150;
92 antelope, as compared with 40, and
Care of the birds progressed ma
terially during the year through post
ing and defining boundaries of many
of the bird refuges, ?jthe planting of
grain to provide food and cover, ea
tablishment of new reservations, pro
vision of additional warden tervice at
certain reservations, and Increased
number of patrol boats.
Its administration cf the mlgruiory
bird treaty act, which prohibits the
shooting of migratory birds on their
flight north in tba spring, and con
tains restrictions as to the manner In
which they may bo hunted during the
open seaaona, and of the Lacey act,
which regulate* Interstate shipments
of wild animals and gante, resulted In
the apprehension of nearly 1,000 al

laws and the securing of more than
000 convictions In which fines Were
assessed ranging from ll to $600 each.

Artist Works With Wood.
In the Vosges mountains there lives
an artist named Spindler, who pro
duces the most entrancing compo
sitions not In paint, but In wood alone.
First he makes the sketch, and then
with Infinite patience and care he cuts
the veneer and glues lt to a backing
and then welds lt nil In a press. Since
Mr. Spindler never uses anything ex
cept wood In Its natural color, he has
to know a great deal about trees. In
his workroom ho has pieces of every
kind of wood found In Europe and
many pieces from other countries. He
pictures clouds, rain, and every
thing that an artist can picture with
paints. Some of his veneer takes bim
hours of study and fitting, and some
of lt Is as fine as a hair. Mr. Spindler
has wood of every shade of yellow,
red, brown, black and white. He has
almost all the shades of green als?,
but he finds the blues hard to get.
