J. O. (’urwood’s New Rook
Tells of North Country
James Oliver Curwood, the well
known “novelist of the north," a na
five of Owosso. Mich., and a former
Detroit newspaperman, is in Detroit
on his way to Owosso from New York,
where he has been the last few weeks
in consultation with Duublcduy, Page

book, "Hod's Country uml the Wo

miles on horseback through country
into which no white mail had pre

Mr. Curwood speuds in what he calls
"Hods country'," the land north of the*
rjreat lakes and south of the Arctic
circle, which he describes in his latest
book the laiid of the mink, the
moose, the tall spruce, the half-breed
trapper and the white mans trading
post. He has out trails through al
most every part of the far north, and
lias hunted all kinds of big game on
the upper part of the continent, from
walrus and seal on Hudson's bay, to
grizzlies, sheep and gouts In British Co
lumbia. Mr. Curwood claims to have
more friends among the Indians, half
breeds and whites of the Hudson bay
country than any oilier wuiite man
not excepting itien of "the company.'
“On one occasion w hen I was re
turning from that wonderful land,
which 1 have described in ‘Hod's Coun

the next dreaded thing to smallpox.

two of his children, and one of the
remaining three was about ready to

a bulky package was delivered to me
at my home, and upon opening It I
found SSOO worth of beautiful fox
skins, mink, ermine and sable. They
were from Mettosin. He did not know
my name, or where 1 lived, w hen 1 left
him. He had found out in hijf own
way. He had gone to the Hudson'*
bay post 50 miles distant, had found
out all about me and had got the
elerk there to send me the furs, which
probably represented two thirds of his
winter’s catch. Among the furs was
a slip of paper on which were Just

Pound Resurrects “States
Rights” Doctrine in St. ( lair
Heights Suit
Th*> views of Alexander Hamilton,
on the question of states right*, were
quoted at length, Friday afternoon,
in Judge Hosinef’s court, by Attorney
Jamei H. Pound, in defense of the
action of the village council of St.
Clair Heights, in issulug two addi
tional saloon licenses. Proseeutor
FYarer is seeking to annul the grants,
declaring that the issuing of the
licenses constitutes a violation of the
provision of the Warner-Cramton aet,
which prohibits a community from
having more than one saloon for each
500 of population. The last federal
census to he accepted as the official
report on population.
Attorneys for the village quoted
Hamilton to ahow that h federal
census should not be called Into af

Judge Hosmer, after hearing the
arguments, said he would reserve his

U J. Ollier, sales manager of the

any way lie tan figure it, there is go

United States to the other,‘not once,

three months, besides taking' short
trips into Canada when occasiqu de

"Everywhere l go," said Mr. Ollier,
“I hear stories of returning prosper
ity ami a confidence in permanent
good times. In the west and middle
west the farmers are holding on to
their crops, awaiting the higher prices
sure to come. The south is confident
that cotton will reach unprecedented
figures and the flurry that occurred
in the eastern states upon°the news
of tin* outbreak of war in Europe
seems have passed. There is a
general feeling of optimism that ar

"It is a fact,” said Mr. Miller, "that
December, January and February
have been always considered as the
poorest months In the year in which
to sell automobiles. Ana yet. all
through the winter our sales have
been gratifyingly large. In some In
stances 1 thought the increased de

the redoubled efforts on the part of
dealers and salesmen; in fact I was
sure it was, but when the demand is
national in its scope and I receive
constant reports of people walking in
to a salesroom and buying cars for

“My advice to dealers," continued
Mr. Ollier, "is to carefully canvas the
field and place their orders for cars
early. If they don’t, someone is go

not been able to accumulate a reserve
of cars and the output of our big De

made upon us."
