' ARJ AFTER "BOB WHITE"
Qnail Season Haa Opened and Hunt-
. era Are Busy.
The fifteenth day of November
marks the opening In Kanaaa of the
quail season. For months ' the
hunters have been looking forward
to November 16th as the child to
Christmas, the small boy to the
Fourth of July and the politician to
u
election day. Some of . them have
looked so eagerly forward that
they have strained their eyes, and
Imagined they saw the figures In
dicating the day long before Its ar
rival. And as a result many hunt
for days, and some even for, weeks
on the forbidden but delicious flesh
of the Bob White. Hunters have
pretended they, were looking for
rabbits, but when a flock of quail
attacked them they always defended
themselves.
But now the foolish quail that
sounds the daylight welcome Is like
ly to be marked for slaughter by the
huntsman who can shoot him with
., immunity and a handful of seven
(.'hilled shot, provided the Bob Is not
ers' familes have been luxuriating
toe swift for him.
But there Is something more re
quired of the hunter than merely to
be able to shoot and hit the game
after finding it First it he hunts
on land other than his own, he must
first secure from the county clerk
a license to hunt. This he must
have always with him when hunt
ing, or be may be nipped by a game
warden iwho demands It. Then he
must have the written permission of
... the owners of the land adjoining
such highway. And in speaking of
the license, if the hunter does not
have it with him when it is demanded
by the officer, such license, even If
he has it at home in his clothes, is
. rendered null and void. ' - '
. Nor can any hunter lawfully kill
in one day more than twenty quail.
A lt -he does, he is liable to 'a fine of
35 for every bird killed In excess
of that pumber. Everyone who goes
upon the land of another to hunt
i without first having permission in
' writing,, may be fined not less than
tS by any justice of the peace before
whom be is taken.
A great many farmers do not want
their quail killed, and will not even
kill the birds themselves. Others de
sire to have the quail for their own
use, and do not want' strangers
tramping over their farms, but they
want such friends first to get per
mission from them to do so. And
the man who goes about shooting
without leave or license from the
land owners, deserves to get Into
trouble, just as he la very likely to
get If he tries it In the neighborhood
of Abilene.
A great many farmers have asked
the Reflector to warn hunters against
going upon their lands without leave.
The farmers mean business, and they
say that this year they are determin
ed that their farms shall not be run
over by lawless hunters who have not
even the courtesy to ask permission
to shoot on the place. So it is up to
the hunters to have a care when they
ore out, for the law Is strict, and the
Justices of the peace of the county
will enforce it against any violator
of It. Just observe this rule and keep
out of danger: First get a license;
then get written permission of the
owner of the land on which yon
want to hunt.

aboard the armored cruiser Tennes-1 absorbs herself with charity, club-lite
or society. If she Is weak and meets
temptation, a tragedy ensues." The
average American woman clings, long
after she has ceased to receive en

Ideal she saw In the husband, "hoping I
that some day he will cease giving her I
things and give himself." Even the
Frenchman is a better family man;
and every traveler testifies to the
keen relish with which, ln publlo

see, after four Interesting days on the
Isthmus. Before leaving, , the presl-
lent said:
'This Is the fifth time I have visited
the Isthmus and I have gone over
the whole line and looked Into, every
part of the Improvement. It is about
22 months since I was last here and
In that time the progress made has
been most satisfactory. Indeed, it is
remarkable.
"The first thing that strikes one is
the fact that work U being done ap
parently on every foot of the 50 nines
of the canal, and done under an or
ganisation of men, plants and ma
terlals that operates as economically
and effectively as if it were a ma
chine with Goethals in control of a
lever which sets and keeps the whole
machine in operation, .
"When I was here 22 months ago
the main question was the conflrma-
tlon of the judgment of congress in
having adopted a lock type canal In
atead of a sea level. The extent tc
which the Gatum dam and the lock!
have been completed has removed
from every impartial observer the
Slightest doubt of the wisdom of the
decision made and the feasibility of
the plan adopted. This conclusion is
further confirmed by the difficult)
occasioned by slides In Culebra cut,
which for a canal of an 85-foot level
necessitated only an additional exca
vation that could readily be taken
care of. Any attempt, however, to
sink a canal In Culebra to a depth
80 feet below the present proposed
lever would lengthen the time of con
struction, weary the patience of the
Americans, make the cost almost pro
hibitory and leave it an exceedingly
doubtful question whether with the
difficulty presented by the Chagres
river, such a canal would be possible
at all.

Japan Is a land of poets, and those

the whole country Is a fairyland and
a constant Inspiration to the most

lect the Festival of Lanterns, the fes
tival on which the souls of the de
parted come back for a few hours to
wander In their old haunts, along the
winding road, by a little flower-colored
cascade or over a bridge drooping
with lavender wistaria to realize how
much nature means to Japan. Perhaps

CAPTURED RIFLES IN . MEXICO
The Secret Police 8olxed 50,000 That
Had Been Collected by the
Revolutionists.
Mexico, City, Nov. 18. The secret
police of the Mexican government
seized 50,000 rifles and a large quanti
ty of ammunition that had been col
lected and concealed by the leaders of
the secret revolutionary movement.
The seizures were made in this city
and at Pueblo, El Oro, Tepic and
Pacbuca. It is expected that many
arrests will be made among the revo
lutionists and that some prominent
Mexicans will be included among the
prisoners.
The uprising was set for November
20. The movement seems widespread.
There Is Intense, though suppressed
excitement throughout Mexico. The
lnaugueral ball has been called off.
Trouble seems to be more Imminent
at Pochnan and El Oro than else
where and the people of these places
are busy getting their women and
children out of the zone of danger.
