"PLAYING THE BEAR" IN CIUDAD JUAREZ. The Mexican method of courting through iron window bars has not escaped characterization by the slang experts of that country. PRES , DENT „,. AND A CHORCH 1N CIUOAD JUARE , th^ m£mcan ciTy wher£ pRM(oEMT T^ HAUNTS OF WILD FOWL. Where to Find Feathered Game and Hozc to Bag Them. The wild fowl hunting season In this state. which opened on the ISth of September, ■■ continue during the remainder of the year In this respect this commonwealth differs radically from th* adjoining state of .NVw Jersey, where the season opens on October 15 and closes on March l.">, except that geese and brant may fk; shot only frcm November Ito Mar' —" The reasons ax obvious. New York, being further north, is lik«-ly to have its waters frozen over a month before those of New Jersey, wi h all of its wild fowl gone by the time the sea? l opens* in Southern New Jersey. Great South liv. the most noted wild fowl haunt of New York, is an "early freezer." while Barnegat Bay. the gr»at duck mecca of New Jersey, hardly ever for? New Jersey alone of the coast states still re tains its spring wild fowl shooting season. Vari ous efforts have been made to induce the I>»jri3 lature at Trenton to abolish spring shooting, without result. The farmers are stolidly and solidly opposed to the change, and their votes decide almost everything in state matters arrf>;»s the Hudson. Nor will the farmers allow the state to impose a dollar license on them for using a gun. All arpimpnts of sportsmen's as sociations and the Ornithological Union have thus far been futile. Every farmer has a gun and a dog. ai;i!. barricaded with his ballot, stands by his right to kill al! game except during the breeding season. All other -:•.:-. however, must i>ay $1 1" license fee to own and use a gun. The New Yorker, therefore, has a long season for wild fowl shooting, beginning on September 1»' in his own state ami ending on March \7> and '27> across the border in New Jersey, a period covering half of the y*-ar. It is true thxiZ to hunt in NVw Jersey he must take out a license, at a cost of ?lo5i», and also a license in New York State, at a cost of $1 10, but these sums are trivial to most sportsmen. The licenses in Loth states are procurable from either city or town clerk, and any attempt to kill game with out them may result in heavy penalties. Great South Bay. Lone Island, is the wild fowl resort nearest to the city, but ducks will be scarce until mid-October. Sni^e. plover and other surf birds, however, are there now, and the former have been there since August 1. The distance to Bay Shore or Patchogue is only fifty miles, and the round trip fare is P2 >». It is customary there to charter a catboat and lie on I such points as are available to the public. Bat tery shooting is a thing of the past everywhere, so the hunter must lie on a point and pull around him such dead weeds as he can find as near as possible to the decoys. Wild fowl can not be shot from any boat propelled otherwise • than by hand, nor from any bough house m Boat j ing device, nor from any natural growth of grass or (lags. The laws jtre so strict that it is only a foolish duck that gets shot, anyway. On Barnegat Bay the hunter has more leeway. ' He may anchor his boat one hundred feet out ; from the shore or ice, as against fifty feet in New York State. There art also more islands and many more points to shoot frost There are also more resorts to stop at. with ample accom modations of all kinds. Among these points are Forked River, Waretown. Barnegat, Tucker ton. Barnegat City Junction. Harvey Cedars, Surf City, Bench Haven. Barnegat City, etc.. all with hotels mil all the year.
