Tendency to Tighten Restrictions on
Hunting of Birds and Big Game Is'
Shown in Federal and State
Laws for 1921.
Washington. A tendency to tighten
the restrictions on the limiting of
birds uml big game is noted in the
game laws for V.)2, a summary of
which, both federal and slate, has been
compiled by the federal biological sur
vey. Among the notable changes made
during the present year was the
amending of the migratory bird treaty
act regulations with respect to bag
limits.
This amendment provides that the
daUy bag limit of any person shall
now include "all birds taken by any
other person who for hire accompanies
or assists him In taking migratory
birds." This will put an end to the
abuse of privileges under the regula
tions regarding the prescribed dally
bag limits by persons who claim that
birds were killed by guides accom
panying them.
Waterfowl Season.
The federal waterfowl season for
California was fixed from October 1
to January In, replacing the old sea
son of October Hi fo January 31, the
season now being the sume under both
federal and slate laws. Regulation !),
governing the issuance of federal
scientific permits, was amended to
penult Hie Issuance of limited and spe
cial permits.
State legislation harmonized federal
and slate laws on waterfowl and shore
birds In Kansas and Oregon, and on
wnterfowl In I'cnnsylvanln mid Itliode
"Island; Washington prescribed a state
wide open season on all migratory
gntno birds from October 1 to January
15, thus deviating from the federal
regulations, which supersede the stale
law, east of the Cascade mountains,
where It will now be possible to hunt
migratory game birds only from Octo
ber 1 to December 81, without violat
ing either federal or state law ; in
Idaho tlie open season on migratory
game birds has been shortened under
state law two weeks by opening Octo
ber 1, Instead of September 1(3, and
extending to December 31.
Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Ne
braska, Oregon and Washington enact
ed legislation similar to the federal
regulation prohibiting hunting from
nirplanes. Colorado reduced the bag
limit on ducks from 20 to 15 a day,

At First Agriculturists.
Tlie size" of the settlement site, as
It can be Imagined from tlie ruins,
the agricultural type of much of the
work in Hint, such as the great spades
and hoes ulmost peculiar to that vi
cinity, and the rich alluvial bottom
land combine to show tout tlie Calio
kluns were probably at first agricul
turists. They probably fished and hunt
ed to some extent, hut they, doubtless,
depended for their subsistence upon
their labor In the field and their sta
ple food wns unquestionably corn.
It Is believed that tlie appearance
of the bison resulted In tlie abandon
ment of agriculture and the develop
ment of the chase, with the result that
tlie community became nomadic and
gradually crumbled and dispersed to
tlie four quarters of the continent.
Believed to Have Come From Mexico.
The preponderance of evidence so
far discovered is that the people of
Cahokia were worshipers of tlie sun.
There Is so much about Cahokia that
Is similar to the works of the Aztecs
that the conviction is forced upon the
student that it was from Mexico that
these people came to the Mississippi
valley, bringing their religion, their
priesthood, their corn, their mode of
life and their middle order of primi
tive civilization,
Kvon If the exploration of tlie Caho
kia mound Is not followed by any im
portant discoveries, It Is certain that
the control by the state will be given
greater momentum when the people of
Illinois are brought to a realization
of Its archaeological value.
I'p to the present time tlie Cahokia

group have not been explored much

HOLDS HEART, PATIENT DIES

usual Act.
(iencva, Switzerland. The cantonal
government has ordered an Inquiry Into
nn extraordinary operation performed
by tlm chief surgeon at a hospital, who
extracted the heart from a man named
Pasclie.
Pasche shot himself, the bullet pierc
ing lu's heart. The surgeon spoke for
'M minutes to the horrified students
with die live heart in ids hands.
At tlie end of the lecture, when the
man was dead, the students protested
to the surgeon, who dismissed their
objections with the remark that the
patient would have died anyhow with
in a few hours.
Authorities are not satis-lied with
this explanation, while the victim's
relatives think of bringing a civil ac
tion for damages.

owing to inbreeding, the stock bus
grown too small for ceremonial pur

The stock of creams, however,
will
not be allowed to die out altogether,

Some More Truths.
"OUIJ) you use a steam shovel to move a pebble? Certainly not, Implements
are built according to the work they have to do.
Would you use a grown-up's remedy for your baby's ills? Certainly net.
Remedies are prepared according to the work THEY have to do.
All this is preliminary to reminding you that Fletcher's Castoria was sought
out, found and is prepared solely as a remedy for Infants and Children. And let
this be a. warning against Substitutes, Counterfeits and the Just-as-good stuff that
may be all right for you in all your strength, but dangerous for the little babe.
All the mother-love that lies within your heart cries out to you: Ee true to
Baby. ADd being true to Baby you will keep in the house remedies specially
prepared for babies as you would a baby's food, hairbrush, toothbrush or sponge.

"SHOWING OFF" THE COLONEL
Storekeeper Had Eye for Business in
Keeping Good-Looking Customer
Waiting for Attention.
A woman in a small town asked Iter
htishiihd, Colonel Blank, to call in at
the dairy when passing to order some
new-laid eggs. After making a brief
demur the colonel yielded. A Mule

quite u small and unimportant estab
lishment on a back street. j
Two or three minutes passed; then, j
as no one came to serve him, tlie coin-
nel gave a gentle knock on the cotin-
i tor. This had nn effect; so a smart
j double rap was given. Then a curlv
headed youngster put bis head around
the door and announced, "father's
a-comln'."
j Hy the time the father arrived the j
' colonel was boiling with rage. ;
1 "What do you mean by keeping me

Children
Are You Prepared?
A doctor in the house all the time would be a good idea. Yet yon
can't afford to keep a doctor in the family to keep baby well or pre
vent sickness. But you can do almost the same thing by having at
hand a bottle of Fletcher's Castoria, because it is a wonderful remedy
for indigestion, colic, feverishness, fretfulness and all the other dis
orders that result from common ailments that babies have.
Fletcher's Castoria is perfectly sale to use. It is a harmless sub
stitute for Castor Oil, Paregoric, Drops and Soothing Syrups. Children
cry for Fletcher's Castoria, and mothers recommend it because they
have found it a comfort to children and a mother's friend.
If you love your baby, you know how sweet it is to be able to
help baby when trouble comes. You cannot always call upon a doctor.
But doctors have nulling but good to say of Fletcher's Castoria, be
cause they know that it can only do good - that it can't do any harm -and
they wouldn't want you to use for baby a remedy that you would
use for yourself.
