WOLF SHOT AT CLATSVILLE
Tracked to Four Houses Monday
A she-wolf measuring almost fire feet
from" tip of noe lo tip of tail was shot bv
aquire K. case and Tom Martin. Mon.
The wolf had bew seen frequently by
persons living neat Qaysville. She was
in the habit of stealing chickens, and of
running with the dogs of the neighbor
hood. After the snow Sunday night,
Martin and Case trailed her with hounds.
and finally jumped her about a mile west
of ClaysviIIc Martin crippled her and
a moment later Case brought her down.
She was very bold at night, and was
seen frequently near houses. The trail
followed Monday led to feer houses,
which the wolf had visited the previous
night. Many persons in the neighborhood
had become much alarmed, and hesitated
lo go out after nightfall.
The state bounty of $6 will not be col
lected because Case wishes to keep the
skia, and would have to surrender the
scalp to get the bounty.
Martin, who has been iantdiar with
wolves while living in the 'West, said to
day that he could not be sure whether
the animal was a pnrchred wolf, or had
coyote blood, but that it was larger than
a great many gray wolves.

Despite the official report from his4$d-

friends that his present condition marks
the beginning of tbe decline in the ratsi-

It is practically certain now that Ca
ruso can not appear again in this season
of the Metropolitan grand opera.
No one but members of the family, the

STUDENT VANGUARD EARLY
Some Thought Registration Began
Yesterday Instead of Today.
For the last two or three days the van
guard of University students has been ar
riving in Columbia for the winter term.
These students have been returning in
increasing numbers, some to avoid the
crowds which always pack the trains on
the first day of registration, some to ob
tain work for the coming term, and some
to make sure of securing desirable lodg
ings for the winter. Others came back
early because of an impression that reg
istration was to begin yesterday instead
The incoming trains today all bore
their quota of returning students. The
railroads carried extra coaches to ac
commodate the crowd. There are always
a few latecomers who do not return to
school until after classes have started.
but tbe great majority of the students
will be back by the last ofahh week.
