l Compnlsory vaccination has been or?
j clered. but our correspondent has heard
I of no further official action to prevent
i the spreatl of the Infection. A strongly
j felt uneasine.-s pervades the people, for
j this reason: Iu all prevtous nuthreaks it
! has been the irtvarlable custom to estab
j lish a pest-house and quarantine agalnsC
j centres of dlffusion. At one time a per?
son will be heard to say he does not be

that a most dangeroirS and foathsome
scoUrge is being ignorantly or carelessly
? trirled wlth.

would it not be well to exumpt the owner
of laiuls from the operation of the game
laws on his own lands for his own table?
Thus favored, I think the law will Ivf
vastly more efflcient. It Ls an admirablei
idea. to forbid the sale or expor!tat'on o*
game. By this the ground ls cut fr-im
under the feet of the rot-httnter. Tha
exemptlc^i of the landlord may op
may rot be a good thing. In the past.
r-r-rv laws b tve no.t been too favorably
viewed by this class. whose good will
and active aid any law must recelv_
to accompHsh its object. In some cases
?' is r.e.-'ssiiry to conciliate ..and maka
him see that it is not for the purposa
<>f saving the game for his city eousinv
but that game may tecome abundant fo*
all. ?
