GOOD NEWS FROM
New Jersey Fish Coniinlsslou
Discovers Fine Stream and
Stocks With Trout.
GOOD LUCK IS NEAR BY 1
Double Tnorm.K. N. J.. June 1. Good
news from Double Trouble! The Board
of Flsh and Oame Commissioners ha
discovered a really fine but neftected
trout itream and stocked It.
The stream rises In Mount Misery,
threads ll way across the State to Dou
ble Trouble, parse Clood Luck and
empties Into the Atlantic between Tom
Yllver and Forked River. The trout
brook Is Cedar Creek and was discovered
l,y Krnest Naiiler, president of the com
mission. Such H find was It that he
put In last year 500 two-year-old trout,
observed that they made sjood and this
year had a carload (2.500) of two-year-cld
brown trout put In and now the sport
Ii open to all anglers for bait of fly
Double Trouble may cause a chuckle
and some doubt, but just as sure as
there. Is h Hell-for-Sartln crcelt In Ken
tucky there Is Double Trouble In New
Jersey. Indeed Edward Crabbe and II.
H Scammell arc In business there and
have had s;ood luck, so much so that
Vr.. Crabbo saw no reason why they
should not call their cranberry and
blueberry business and their other In
dustries the Douhle Trouble Company.
The Double Tronhl Company has a
rating In Duti'a and Bradstreet'a.
Hor Pontile Trouble Hot 'mr.
' "How did Doublo Trouble reccle
Its name?" repeated Mr. Crabbe
"Good Luck, further down from
Double Trouble, was the birthplace of
the. Universalis! Church In America. In
1770. Tho clergyman who established
the Universalis! Church built a dam
at this point and the benvers and musk
rats, according to the story, broke
through the dam and when the rector
came up to Inspect It and saw the
havoc wrought he remarked: 'More
trouble, double trouble.' The name stuck.
If you will look at the topographical
map.' of New Jersey you will see Dou
ble Trouble Indicated. I have looked
back over records In Perth Amboy and
I find Doub'e Trouble mentioned in
deeds ns far back as 1790.
' "How Good Luck Point got Its name
is, also Interesting. In the Revolutionary
war Col. Coates. for whom Coatcs Point
Is named, was almost captured by the
British but he spurred his horse and
the animal swam from Coates's Point
to a landing which he called 'Good Luck
Point,' where he made his escape. It
ia called Good Luck Point to this day."
Goose Companion of Anglers.
Cedar Creek Is most attractive to the
angler at Double Trouble, where It flows
through the cranberry bogs and Is
an open stream for a couple of miles
1 until It finally meanders through the
eedar woods, whore casting the fly
naturally Is more difficult than In the
open. The stream Is known to only a
few anglers as a pickerel stream, be
cause of Its Inaccessibility, e. Mr.
ffanrnV's father landed a ten Inch
trout tho other day and the next trout
that rose to his fly smashed his leader
and having only one leader with him,
he wn unable to "come back."
Douhle Trouble Is on the west road
from Toms River, three and one-half
miles from that place. Shortly after
leading Toms River, Jake's branch, a
rather likely looking trout stream. Is
passed and one enters the pine and
cedar forests and no house Is visible
and the country Feemingly Is as wild as
remote sections of the Adlrondacks or
Maine. Der. rabbits and pheasants
bound. Indeed Mr. Crabbe nearly
truck tso while crossing Double Trou
ble dam recently. Arriving at Double
Trouble one mlRht fish all day and see
no person except the men working about
the Crabbe farm.
Cedar Creek has any number of cold
spring brooks flowing Into it, which
makes It Ideal tor the raising of young
trout. Also It has such a flow of water
that In January, when the flood gates
are closed in preparation for cleaning
out the ponds for cranberry culture, the
bogged dammed area will All within
In April the water is let out. and In
stead of Ave big ponds, containing, say.
fijO acres of water, only a small stream
from ten to forty feet wide remains.
Cedar Creek 'Most Attractive.
The brook trout angler should wear
rubber boots, although It Is not neces
sary In dry weather, for the banks are
practically hard enough to keep one
from even getting muddy. Rubbers
irould do just as well for the man who
does not own' wading boots. Hut for the
angler who Is equipped with all the para
phernalia that goes with brook trout
angling it Is a flnc stream. to wade, be
Inc from elsht to twelve feet In depth.
For the man who delights to cast from
the bank the stream Is Ideal.
If any sportsman takes advantage of
this tip, let him not put in memory for
next fall the big wild Canada goose that
will follow him and nnswer the honk
call. Let no gun barrel bo pointed at
this bird. The goose Is nulto tame and
will accompany him along the bank, en
joying his society for It has few human
companion". The goose has spent six
happy !ears live, Of late its flight Is
riot the best since a fox crept up to It
while asleep one night and took a bite
of Its leg.

WHERE AND HOW TO FISH
Hy nOBBItT PAGE LlJiCOLX.
The black bass season opens In New
York on June 18 and In New Jersey on
tne day previous.
I am nicer to tell you the best time
of all for fly Ashing for the large mouths.
It comes right after a warm, light
sprinkling riln. The morning, we. will
say, has been balmy : It clouds over and
a rain falls on Die earth.
Even If you have business on of vita:

down the flyrod ; fly to the lake ( If you
have wings) and with all haste get busy
before the rain has piused.
Ths bass and the copperbellted tan
Ashes will be Inshore. The coming of
the rsln means that Insects will be
washed Into the stream by the action of
tho rivulets, or brushed off of the shore
trees by the rain.
At once begin to ply the rod and re
main as much as possible In conceal
ment. You will now note the bass a
close to shore that their backs almost
ore thrust out of the water. One may
stand at the water's edge and oast tip

no slick ; that will get them 1
Dut best of all during these warm
drizzle hours. In the midst of leafy June,

and even around the outlets : though
the Inlets are to be preferred. Here
water flows In, and like a magnet It
draws the big fellows. The reason Is
simple: they are waiting for the water
to wash In live food of some variety or

Some of these little rivulets that enter

Equallv as It Is true that the light

bass, by sending them Inshore, so too on
the streams will the bass be active.

Especially true will it be that bass are

If such happens to be the case, fall not

Season Too Long, However,
Says Adirondacker; August
Should Be Cut Off.
.REASONS FOR CHANGES
Emiaskthtown, N. Y., June 1. "The
situation on trout fishing Is Improv
ing,' said an angler who has spent his
boyhood and manhood In the Adlron
dacks to a Sun reporter to-day. "Prior
to three years ago we had a series of
dry years and the little feeder brooks
dried up. Three years ago this spring
we begsn to have more water, and the
result Is that the little feeder brooks
filled up and we are now vetting better
"Dry seasons alwuys produce poor
flatting. The Improvement has come
within two yesrs. There are millions of
trout In these small streams and It
proper protection Is given to them the
results will be cumulative.
"Tho Brown's Track Guide Associa
tion In the neighborhood of FXilton
Chain for Afteen or twenty years have
been keeping closed small forks for a
continuously closed season. These,
small streams where the trout live and
develop ought to be protected through
out the State. Sportsmen are the ones
to do It. They should appeal to the
Conservation Commission to close cer
tain streams, and In that way they
ran Increase the supply of big flsh. If
this should be done It would do more
than any other things to Increase the
supply of trout In our Slate waters.
Tront Seaaon Too Lonsr.
"Incidentally our trout season Is too
long. The latter end of It should be
cut off. Troutlnp through August
should not be permitted. The trout start
spawning before the season Is oyer on
August 31, and moreover, by the time
you get to August the streams are
cleaned out, and the Ash taken In Au
gust are the biood stock. We ought
to have the month of August taken off
the trout law In order to care for the
"While the State Conservation Com
mission is doing everything possible to
Increase the supply of trout In our
streams you cannot make much head
way If the brood stock are depleted.
Also the Conservation Commission can
not begin to stock all the State trout
waters. No brook trout should be
Ashed for sfter July anyway unless It
Is a stocked stream and stocked that
year. Whenever a stream Is not stocked
for a year or two Uout Ashing Bhould
automatically cease on July 1 to give
the flsh an opportunity to Increase. If
a stream was stocked of course It would
not have to be closed on July 1.
"During July and August the brooks
and streams are low as a rule and It Is
the easiest matter tn the world by Jig
ging, tickling and snaring In addition to
other Illegal methods to take trout.
Stopping Ashing during August would
be a great protection for the trout, for It
would make enforcement of the law
easy, for It Is only when streams nre
low that the flsh can be taken by these
Illegal methods, familiar. If not prac
tised, by small boys and poachers and
others who have no regard for the law."

AS BIG AS SHAD
Promrse of Great Sport When
Western Species Becomes
PLANTED BY THOUSANDS
Mackettstown, N. J June .1 Borne
hint of the kind of sport In store for
anglers when the rainbow trout becomes
thoroughly established In the waters of
this State has already come to those
fishermen who have been fortunate
enough this spring to catch survivors of
the first lot of rainbows placed In New
Jersey waters five years ago.
Five and six pound specimens of this
trout have been reported taken on hook
and line In several of the streams where
the flsh were flrst Introduced, while simi
lar flsh retained In ponds at the Stats
hatchery here for study and exhibition
purposes are now larger than full grown
The rainbow trout seems to floulrsh In
all New Jersey waters and gives promise
of becoming ultimately the State's most
popular came fish.
The Fish and Game Commission Is
planting these flsh by the hundreds ot
thousands In many ponds, creeks and
brooks In all parts of the State, for, un
like the brook trout, they will do equally
as well In the warmer waters of south
Jersey as In the cooler streams of north
At the same time the hatchery output
of brook or speckled trout Is being In
creased, so that anglers In north Jersey
waters can take their choice between the
Rainbow Makes Blgr Hit.
In every State where the rainbow trout
has been Introduced It has made a big
hit among sportsmen. It Is a native of
Pacific coast streams, grows rapidly and
In some of the mid-Western States at
tains a weight of twenty pounds.
In Michigan, from which State iNew
Jersey procures Its supply of trout'eggs
for the hatchery here, rainbows have
been caught welching twenty-five
pounds, while flsh of from six to twelve
pounds In weight are quite plentiful.
The rainbow will lle and thrive in
warmer water than any other member
of the trout family, and the temperature
of the water has much to do with the
size of the flsh, the colder the water the
smaller the trout.
Despite Its size the rainbow dlsplajs
fewer of the cannibalistic traits than
brook and brown trout and lives peace
fully In the same waters with other
game Psh. It feeds chiefly on Insects, In
sect lame and Crustacea and does not
take rapidly to minnows and small fish
A rapid grower, a game fighter and a
delicious table flsh, the verdict of anglers
Is that the rainbow trout has come to
New Jersey to stay.

mer Is bomcttmcw a three pronged object.
This is tho best for spearing fish.
The single pronged spear Is geneially
used In spearing squids, as only a
single vtlclc or spear is necessary' to
force the squid out of his hiding place,
which Is generally a hole In the rocks.
When tho pointed spear Is poked Into
the hole the squid draws itself out and
clings on to the spear, thus making It
easy for the fisher to grab and kill It.
The net Is generally about two feet
across and Is made so that a fish one
Inch In diameter could not pass through
the holes. The fisher carries this In one
hand, and when In trying to spear the
flsh It escapes the spear he puts the net
Into use and chases the flsh Into It.
The different kinds of flsh caught by
the torch light and spenr are tqulds,
large kumus, weke. uhus and moanos.
Those caught with the net are generally
small fishes and lobsters.

HAPPY AT AMSTON
Public May Enjoy Hobby and
Privileges of Private Estate
Through Aras's Gift.
Ambton, Conn., June 1. The summer
activities of the Audubon House here
are about to begin, and visitors In
terested In wild life are welcome. Ams
ton Is owned by Charles M. Ams of New
York city and contains a tract of three
or four square miles of splendid game
country, with a lake a mile long and
smaller ponds and streams.
Mr. Ams several years ago gave the
free use of this property, representing an
Investment of over a quarter of a million
dollars, to the National Association of
Audubon Societies as an ornithological
experiment and demonstration station, to
show what can .be done in practical
ways to Increase wild birds and game.
In order to carry out successfully the
educational or demonstration side of the
experiment station work, and to show
the methods to visitors, besides the pub
lication ot results, Mr. Ams has provided
a furnished residence, known as the
Audubon House, which Is the headquar
ters of the work, being equipped with
collections of birds and a small working
ornithological library, for use of students
He has also equipped, near by, the
Amaton Inn, which will be open to the
public this week. Visitors will bo le
ceived at any time ami shown the work.
There will be u summer school eeswlon,
with courses of Instruction, field demon
strations and cxenlng lectures by spe
cialists, beginning on July C and lasting
The courses will be on general bird
study, field ornithology, the breeding
and management of game birds and wa
ter fowl, attracting birds and nature
photography, both with plate and mo
tion picture cameras," says Herbert K.
Job. "These courses and lectures will
be of value to bird lovers, teachers,
land holders, tho!.o who would lc.irn
game breeding for pleasure or profit and
amateur photographers of wild game.
"Tho general conception and plan Is
that this association should provide n
rendezvous for Instruction and social
meeting afJeld of lovers of birds and
game, where within t-asy access, they
can get Interesting and unusual eights
of wild name and bird life under de
lightful natural conditions and in con

reputable people who loe wild things

PEARY ADDS PLEA
TO SAVE MUSK OX1
Bays Finest of Any Known
Animal Will Prove Trada
ble; Easily Raised.
DISEASE ONLY OBSTACLE
Br RRAK-ADMUlAIt ROBERT'S.
Naturally I am Interested tn Stefan,
son's suggestion In regard to perpetuat
ing and domesticating the musk ox.
The same thins; was suggested som
years ago by the American Bison Soci
ety, and still earlier than that by box
man whose name I do not now recall,
who corresponded quite freely with ms
on the subject
There Is no question but what th
musk oz could be effectively perpetuated
In our northwestern regions.
The musk oz will prove tractable and
easily Talsed. The meat Is as good as
any beef. Its wool In length or staple,
strength, warmth and silky softness 1
believe to be the flncst of any known
The entire skins as robes might prove
a considerable source of Income, as also
the mounted heads as game pieces for
clubs, libraries and studios.
One poselble obstacle to raising the
musk oz occurs to me. That Is, that
the musk ox, living for generations In
a region free from bacteria and bacilli,
may, if transported to lower latitudes
and within the wind Influence from dis
eased cattle, might, like the Eskimos
themselves, be eo susceptible to dlseass
and contagion that It would be Impossi
ble to keep the herds In existence.
BIRDS VS. CATS.

Boston, Mass., June 1. "The nest

Whether or not there will be the dc6lred
Increase In birds this season depend
very largely on the protection which will
be received by the adult birds durlnc
tho hatching period and the young birds
until they can fly and liavo learned to

sued to-day by tho Commissioners en
Fisheries and Gamo.
"Ono of the greatest menaefs-to th
bird life of tho country to-day is th
house cat," continued tho poster. "Thjro
aro very few cats which, If given tn
opportunity, will not kill a mother Wrl
on the nest or a helpless fledgling flut

"The groat tragedy Is as likely to oc
cur In the clematis along the porch, or
In the flower gardn, as 1t Is In tJis re
moto places frequented by the so-called
wild' hunting house cat.
"This Is no attempt to Indict ths cat.
Wo havo great sympathy for and apprf
elation of tho affection between tabby
and her owner. Wo aro simply asking
that nt this crucial period the birds be
given all benefit of the doubt
"Wo earnestly ask the owner of every
house cat during the next three months
to assume the responsibility of seeing
that the cat will not be given an oppor
tunity to kill birds.
"The country is at war. To win th
war we must have food. It Is common
knowledno that the birds are a tremen
dous factor In the protection of the food
supply from Insects. Cats If unre
strained, spcclally at this boason, will
tremendously weaken that protection,
