Explanation of New Game Law.
The following is on extract from a
letter received from the Executive
Agent of the Game and Fish Com
"As to the license, will say that
the licenses for 1913 have been de
1 Iivered to the County Clerks. The1
way the new law is worded on-this
subject is very confusing to the pub
lie and has caused us considerable
anuunt of work in answering in
quiries. The new law is mandatory
in that it directs , that the licenses
for each year must be in the hands
.of the county clerks by May 1st.
We directed each county clerk to
-Jjeep- sufficient b ank licenses from
those rnturned between Dec 15 and
25, to supply punters wanting li
cence from the 15Ui.of Dec. 1912 to.
Jan. 1, 1913. The law shoufd be
changed sa3 to have the county
c t?K keep alt unused licenses and
stubs of licenses used, until from
' Ja 1 t Jan. 10th of the following
year, and that the licenses should be
in the hands of. the. county clerks,
for the following year, before Dec
ember the 15'h. ;
"We had 1 000 licenses printed for
your county for 1913, with the nume
of the county clerk countersigned
and the d1bc for h'.B deputy e'erk to
sign, but owing to the rush of busi
ness they were not gotten out be
fore Jan 1st, and they were destroy
ed after being printed by the fire
which burred tue Kentucky State
Journal offices where the State
printing is done. This will necess
arily cause some delay, but 200 li
censes, the same as issued to thp
other counties where business is not
so heavy, were sent to your county
; clerk on Jan. 7th, and are in his
- hands before this date."
Selling Land From A Balloon
' Los Angeles is known as 'the home
' of the enterprising real estate agent
and probably no feat performed
elsewhere in the line of selling lots
has been equaled by the exploit of
one of these Angelenos. He had
almost convinced a prospective
customer of the merits of a certain
out-of-town lot, but the prospect
demurred at signing a contract with
out seeing the property, says a
writer in February Techical World
It was a little tco late in the after
noon to go out, and besides the
company's automobile was in use,
but it would never do to let the
customer get away, as he might
change his mind or see some other
The sa e3maa had a big idea. A'
captive ba.loon makes frequent as
cents from a lot just a few blocks
from the office, rising to the end of
a thousand foot cable and carry
ing passengers at $1 00 a trip.
With a little urging the costomers
were induced to take the aeriur
journey, and from that altitude the
agent pointed out the suburban lot,
showing its exact location and the
character of the surrounding prop
erty quite aj clearly as if they were
actually on the ground.
Before the descended, the pros
pect had agreed to buy the lot and
the agent did not even have to
threaten to throw him overboard if
lie balked at the contract.
