The "zoo" has always been the chief point of attraction to the young folks, for there they may see a variety of the birds and beasts belonging to the plains and fastnesses of the Treasure State. They are beautiful specimens of their respective families and are not surpassed by any sim ilar collection in this part of the country. This year an important change is to be made In the location of the animals' quar ters. The "soo." which has been located on the south side of the Gardens, behind the children's playground, is to be moved to the north side of the Gardens, in the hope that the animals will be even better contented that they have been. The great objection to the former loca tion has been that the shade trees in that part of the resort have shut off the sun light from the wild beasts, to which it really is a ncctssity. Plenty of Sunlight. In the new location they will be ex lposed to the sunlight all the year round and will le protected from the winds of winter b4y the high hill above themn. The fence has been extended up the l.ill for quite a distance, increasing the area of the Itardeos by five acres or more. This will give the animals plenty of roomn, which, takenl in conjunction with the increase in sunlight, will tend to make the birds and Ieasts feel that they are in close touch witl. nature and recuncile them to their captivity.

It would naturally appear that owing to the price for which imported cham pagnes are sold, the combined revenue for the sale of all these wines would be in excess of the amount paid annually for any single brand of bottled beer. But such is not the case, as the United States custom house statistics clearly and definitely prove. Anheuser-Busch's Budweiser not only exceeds in sales all other bottled beers combined, but has proved itself the mightiest competitor of imported cham pagnes by exceeding their annual rev enue more than three and one-half mil lion dollars. The sales of Budweiser during the year 9go2 were 83,790,300 bottles, averaging 5a cents per bottle, amounting to jao, 947 5United States custom house records prove the importation of all champagnes for the year 1roa to be 36o,7o8 cases. Figuring on a basis of 1s quart bottles per case-4,3aa8,496 bottles, and if sold at the maximum, $4 per bottle, to the consumers, amounted to STj 31S3,59. From these figures it will te seen that Budweiser's lead was 53,633 591. It Is a noteworthy fact itat this pure and wholesome beverage is fast supplant ing imported champagnes upon the ban quet table, just as it is supplanting the decanter upon the sideboard in American homes. This is as it should be and marks a perceptible advancement in the direction of true temperance. Budweiser is a brew that is known the world around, and is not only preferred by discriminating customers because of its rare flavor, fie effervescence and per [eat masrity but prescribed by phy sicians everywhere on account of its abso lute purity, nourishing and upbuilding ef fsets UVINGSTON AND PARK COUNTY TRUSTEES MEET W.
