AS TO THE GAME LAW.
Letter from Pres. Taylor, of the
Editor of thoIDcmocrat. -Thoro
seems to be a pretty general im
pression in tlie state that some
change has hoon miulo in the ?ramo
law. In some instances it is stat
ed that no birds are now protect
ed, and 1 would bo very glad if
you would make it known through
the col urns of your paper that
there has been no change made in
the bird, game and fish laws ol'
this state except two very minor
amendments concerning tho season
in Lexington County and making
a close season for the opossum.
Thc Audubon Society will shortly
have printed copies ol'all the Bird,
Game and Fish laws for distribu
tion ami we wish to warn all par
ties that violations of the laws will
bc prosecuted to tho, fullest ex
tent. Wc arc obtaining convic
tions every week. Our Secretary
is very active at prcsont and is se
curing memberships at the rate of j
ten or fifteen a week. AU those
desiring to join thc Society should
send their membership fee of live
dollars ($5.00) to thc Society. The.
annual dues are one dollar ($1,00.)
Yours very truly,

Civic League Meeting
. On tho afternoon of Feb. 26th,
tho regular monthly meeting of
tho Civic League was hold at tho
home of Mrs. C V Townsend. A
very small number was present,
only eight responding to tho roll
call, but these few were deeply in
terested in the work on hand and
(luring tho hour some important
measures for the betterment of the
town were brought up, discussed,
and disposed of in a satisfactory
Thc first report of the afternoon
was that of the treasurer, Mrs. ll
L McColl, in regard to tho work
that is being done by the League
on the Murchison school grounds.
She stated thal '230 plants had been
bought and set in the vacant pla
ces in the-hedge. Mrs. Townsend
also reported that twelve nico
trees had recently been set out on
the grounds. Thc treasurer stated
that during the past month $15.83
had been spent in improving and
beautifying thc school grounds,
showing thc deep interest of the
Civic League in this lovely square
with so many possibilities for
beautiful development. A kind of
fer from Mrs. Matheson to fur
nish the League with canna bulbs,
to be planted on thc grounds, wai
gratefully accepted, and a commit
tee was appointed to attend t<
planting the bulbs.
Thc next matter discussed was
one that has been before the Lea
gue many times and is thc one tba
lies nearest the hearts of the mern
hers of the League. "How to ge
thc streets clean and how to kee]
them so," apparently almost ai
lt was reported that the. matte
of procuring regular refuse rece fi
tades for tho streets had bec
thoroughly investigated and it wa
found that a neat, strong wir
basket with a good cover and a
attachment for fastening it to
telephone pole could be procure
at a cost of sixty cents each. Al
ter full discussion it was decide
to purchase at once twenty haskel
as an experiment. If they prove
success on the streets as a tras
receptacle, thc League will Ol
clea vor to place one at every poi
sible needed place. A commit ti
was then appointed to request tl
mayor to insist upon thc strii
enforcement of the ordinance i
regard to paper, trash, etc., boin
thrown upon the streets, and 1
also request him to provide, ft
the removal of the Collection <
trash from thc street baskets aft?
they shall have been placed.
The street committee reporte
that thc petition to the town eon:
eil in regard to changing the naur
of two of the streets had bet
submitted, but as yet nothing hi
been heard from thc council. Tl
committee in same petition mat
the urgent request that the com
eil instruct the proper ones
have the pavements in front
stores swept clean on Satur di
nights in order that the stree
may be neat and attractive to tl
Sunday passers-by. This com m i
tee was continued with instru
tions to again urge the matter u
on thc council. Il is a matter
great regret and disappoint me
to the few earnest members of tl
Civic League that thc name
every woman of the town is not <
its "active list" and that of evei
man on its "sustaining list." Tl
work that the League is doing
one that is greatly needed for tl
health and beauty of our grow ii
little town and it should appeal
the. heart of every one who ca
the town home. Any one won
be welcome as a member and it
hoped that many new names rhi
be enrolled af tin1 next meetii
which will be held on the four
