Change in the Zoo.
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

AN INTERESTING COMPARISON.
It would naturally appear that owing
to the price for which imported cham

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

exceeds in sales all other bottled beers
combined, but has proved itself the
mightiest competitor of imported cham
pagnes by exceeding their annual rev
