',1 ! ! t i z t Rehabilitated. The wonderful rehabilitation of the building so long occupied by the M. Sonnenberg Piano Co. has given to J the central portion of ths city a magnificent st ructure. After many months of work and many disappointments, caused by the inability to obtain proncr materials to fill specifications, the building is completed.

The interior is nearly done, only the finishing touches are needed to enable us to say: It is finished. We invite the public to visit our new building, the home of fine pianos, and see the com pleteness of every detail which has transformed an old es tablishment into a modern business building-. M.

Excepting only Yellowstone Park, Grand Island, In Lake Superior, is the largest and most complete game in the United States. Nesting in the wa ter of the great inland i:,ea, this pic turesque native woodland, with its rockbound enures, is a veritable gem of nature. Grand Island resembles in shape a transposed outline of the State of Louisiana, but here the similarity ends. The Island contains but 13,000 acres, or about twenty square miles. It is ten miles long and four miles wide. Its unbroken forests of pine and hardwood have been converted into a game preserve in which nearly every species of game animal and bird na tive to this latitude can how be found in its native State, says the Muskegon Chronicle. ; The physical nature of the project. Over half the coast line is bounded by perpendicular cliffs rising to an elevation of from 40 to 350 feet above the level of Lake Superior, forming a perpetual barrier against escape. In some places along the coast line thei;e miniature mountain rctnges are broken by deep ravines and gulches, which in most cases are sequestered valleys of singular loveliness. l!" Where three valleys open an exit to the lake, game fences' have been built to prevent tho animals' from gaining access to the mainland by swimming the channel in summer or crossing the ice In tho winter peason. At a point two and a. half miles north of the southern extremity of the Island a game fence twelve feet in height and extending east and west, to the ishoro line has been built, fnclosing an area of about 8,000 acres over which the animals is roam at will. Between ' two lofty ridges that traverse the Island from north to the sout'h Is a dense cedar swamp, three miles long and one mile wide at ltu broadest point. This Is the natural home of the caribou, which feed upon the dry, gutllnous mixture commonly called muss and found in great quani tlties in this region. . The original herd of caribou was brought to the Island three years ago from Deer Lake, Newfoundland. There were five animals in the herd. Like their near relatives, the moose, they are ilow breeders, but grow to enor mous size. There are probably a score of specimens of the moose fam ily on Grand Island, one of which has attained its full growth, nnv being about 15 years old, and weighing 1,000 pounds. The moose . were imported from Canada and northern Minnesota. Other big game In., the Grand Island preserve in a herd of elk. Originally it numbered eleven, but since brought ij the island three years ago it has largely Increased, the elk being a pro lific breeder. During certain seasons of the year men are employed by the company to carry on a war of extermination against the fox, mink and other small animals whlra prey upon the game birds. The beaver, wnvever, is allow ed to propagate, and many .frpeclmenn have been brought to the island and given the freedom of Its several streams. The native or ruffed grouse arn plentiful in nil parts of the pre serve, and the spruce hen, a bird now almost extinct, is present in great number?. From Scandinavia twv years ago the company imported 130 game birdu, also members of the grouRe family, and from Manitoba it secured a number of sharp tailed grouse. The birds se cured from the Scandinavian peninsula are known as the capercailzie and or rie. The former is possessed of habits much like tlwe of the partridge to the ' native to the Lake Superior re gion. There are many other speci mens of game birds ion the island, among them the English ring neck pheasant, a bird of highly colored plumage, and the wild turkey. The latter were obtained in the Indian Ter ritory and are the most difficult of all game birds to propagate. The capercailzie, ur "black game bird of Norway," is one of the largest species of game birdsin the world, be ing very hardy and frequently attain ing weight exceeding fifteen pounds, but when the birds are young they are eai?y prey of hawks. The birds are known as "rangers," for. the reason that while in quest of food they cover a wide expanse oi territory. During periods of heavy snowfall they burrow Into the snow and remain until the storm subsides before venturing out again. Their food In winter consists chiefly of birch buds and In summer they catch mice and other ismall ani mals. They are rated .is members of the grouse family and in habits are much like the partridge.

Most Comple te Line ot hapcr and Twine in State ' . Of , course the airship- hasn't arrived' a.3 yet. Santos Dumont haa skimmed. ovr the surface of France for a few hundred yards find our own Wrlfrht brothers tell remarkable stories of even greater achievements In this: linj but for the present nobody is fiylng.' Lots of people are busy with aeroplanft' models and everybody' Is prophesying but beyond an pecaslonal balloon, the upper air still belongs to the birdis.and man travels on the earth's surface just as usual. Tills doesn't mean, of cburs$ that the airship isn't coming. Indeed, It means exactly the opposite, for thig general interest, together with the few qualified successes in flying, demons strates that it's only a matter of time until the problem will be solved. -So reasons the world, which regards thS airship as a certainty of the immediate future, and is already turning to th Important questions which it is bound to raise. Will it, for instance, have free right of way? Boundary lines hitherto have been very deep, but no higher than the houi?etops. The title to your ljt makes you owner of a' solid "chunk" of ground that reaches tj the earth's cen ter. If there are gold mines or coal mines or oil reservoirs or any treasures whatsoever under the 25x100 feet on which your house stands, they belong to you as much as the wheelbarrrow or rose-bush that are out in the back yard. No one can burrow into them with impunity any more than he can break through your fence. But how about the realm above? Have yon title to 25x100 feet of air clear to the dome of the universe? Does the air1 ship trespass when it sails above as the miner would were he to drive a tunnel underneath? ' ' ' The same question, ;but in Its larger aspects, has to do with nations, and brings up a -world of puzzles for the' statesmen who frame tariff, immigra tion and other legislation growing cut of international association. We have custom houses and receiving stations now that answer every purpose, but . when men begin to fly over boundary lines there'll be some mighty interest ing problems for the officials. How high up do these international boun dary lines reach, anyway? An Immi grant is here when he lands on Ellis Island, but is he here when he is 4000 feet a'bove Wall street, say? And what about the pocketful of diamonds that an airship traveler may bring in when his vessel lands in Kalamazoo, Alic'h., or Bodunk., Ok.,? Who owns the up per -air, anyway, and by that means is he to keep this property of his out of tho hands of trespassers? These are problems that follow the airship, and they're nearly as difficult, too, as the ainshlp itself. 'Newark News. The New Haven National Interstate bowling team arrived home yesterday from Elizabeth, N. J., where it went Monday night to play a postponed championship match of three games. New Haven landed two, and elimbeij a peg toward first place thereby.
