HUNTERS MEET FINLEY
State Game Warden Talks Over Pro
posed Legislation With Local
Ximrods Friday Xight.
After the lecture Friday evening
State Game Warden Finley met a
number of the local sportsmen at
the Commercial Club and talked over
proposed legislation along those
lines. There is, be says, a move on
foot to close the Rogue river even
to book and line fishing for certain
times in the yeat. This is not ap
proved by the Rogue river valley
sportsmen, who believe that if dyna
miting is- stopped and a limit, say. of
three salmcTn per day, put upon the
catch it will protect the fish and still
give sportsmen pleasure at all times
of the year.
There is also a move on foot to
reduce the bag of deer allowed to
three, two bucks and one deer.
Sportsmen claim that the present
limit of no doe and five bucks is re
sulting in such a preponderance of
does that there is not the natural
rate of increase.
Special Song Service.
A song service was a feature of
the service at the Presbyterian
church Sunday morning. The chorus,
which Is conducted by Professor
Isaac, gave special music. "I Will
Extoll Thee," from the Oratorio Ely
by Costa, was sung by Mrs. Conway.
"Home, Sweet Home" was rendered
by a quartet composed of Mr. McCoy,
Mr. Enders, Mrs. Ashcraft and Miss
Nissley, which was a most appropri
ate conclusion to the sermon by Rev.
H, T. Chisholm, whose text was taken
from the twentieth chapter of sec
ond Kings, fifteenth verse. "And he
said, What have they seen in thine
house? And Hezekiah answering,
All the things that are in mine house
have they seen. There is nothing
among my treasures that I have not
showed them." Rev. Chisholm dwelt
on the home as the foundation of all
religious training, and without these
home "influences the church cannot
achieve the best results in the train
ing of children.
King of Italy Creates Cousins.
Rome, Nov. 2L As a result of
Italy's war with Turkey, King Victor
Emmanuel has three cousins. They

In recognition of their .services in
enabling Italy to get away with its
grab of the two Turkish provinces of
Tripoli and Cyrenaica, the king has'
Just conferred upon them the collar
which makes them relatives of the
sovereign. The order permits the
king to increase the royal family in
this manner to the extent of 33 cous
ins, but it is seldom that he exer
cises this right to the full limit.

House," on Friday, November 29, at
Mnie. LabaJie is making the long
est tour of consecutive seasons, em
bracking the most extensive itinerary
of the American continent ever un
dertaken by a dramatic interpreter.
Particularly interesting is the fact
that during her tour of Alaska in the
summer of. 1910, when the artist
appeared in all the ports of call as
far north as Nome, to which point
she traveled 2,193 miles by boat
down the Yukon, a 'trip that carries
the voyager across the Arctic circle,
Mme. Labadie gave interpretations
Ibsen's "A Doll House" and "The
Servant in the House," by Rann Ken

an appreciation that exceeded her
highest hopes. The trip back to the
