Some amendments which should be
made at tlie next session of the leg
islature are suggested in this re
port ns follows: The enactment of
a resident hunter's license for tile
purpose of raising revenue for the
protection of forests from fire, and
for i lie purpose of better protecting
and propagating game and fish, aui
for the purposo of better protecting
the land owners and farmers by pro
viding means of identification by
which the destruction of properly and
other acts of vandalism by hunters
may be traced and the perpetrators
punished. A state fish hatchery
should be provided so that the streams
of our state may be stocked with
fish. Our laws relating to forest IIro3
should be amended so as to conform
to the rules and regulations of the
Untied States government, in order to
recelva co-operation from the govern
ment in this work, and to afford bet
ter protection to our forests. .Author
ity should be granted to the fores',
game and fish warden to close certain
depicted streams Cor fishing, so that
flsli planted may be. given time to
multiply. 'The open season oil both
trout and bass should be shortened. A.
limit on tlie number of trout taken
per day should be fixed at 25, and
the minimum length to be taken rais
ed from five to six inches. Section.
?14 ot the Acts ot 100[3 should bo
amended so as to make the meaning
clear as to the catching of flsli of the
sucker variety in any way at any time,
which is very conflicting and which
Is not plain even to the legal profes
sion. It is suggested that it be inadj
unlawful to catch llsh in any ot the
streams of the state except with hook

on all migratory birds should bo made
to conform with the federal law.
There should bo a hag limit on gray
squirrels of not more than twenty-five
per day. All unnaturalized foreigners
should bo prohibited from carrying
firearms of any kind. There should
bo a closed season on all fur-bearing
animals except for about GO days;
when the fur is merchantable. Au
thority should bo given to the for
ost, gamo and flsli warden to lease
land for game and bird refugees or

bo prohibited and gamo and birds
raised for stocking purposes.

L^tty?you remember Letty, who used
to'be .In-service here. Well?eay, I'd
best' start right at the beginning.
'Xetty was the housemaid at this
hotel when Anthony was King & Co.'s
best salesman. Her mother had
brought her up very strict, and when
she died Letty was only eighteen and
knew about as much of the world as a
child does. The house was worth about
two thousand, for property had been
going up for a long time; but Letty
couldn't live on nothing while It was
on the market, so she came to the
'tavern' as second housemaid. In those
days service ot that kind wasn't con
sidered anyways lowering in .Wake
"Anthony was staying over night. It
was a small town on his route, and ho
hadn't made many sales that year, and
hejwas naturally a bit depressed. But
when he saw Letty sweeping down the
hall he brlghtoned up a hit Anthony
always liked a pretty face. Bo he
comes up to her.
" "Hello, kid, you euro are a peaoh,'
he says, and kisses her. Tbat done,
he goes Into his room, thinking no
more about it.
"Letty was flabbergasted. She had
always been taught that to kiss a girl
meant you wanted to marry her, and
here was a perfect stranger who had
kissed her tiio minute he set eyes on
her. Tho little fool put down her
broom and began to cry with happi
ness. Anthony was about^forty and
rather fat and flashily dressed, but he
was all gold in Lotty'B eyes.
"Nest morning Anthony, having re
newed hlB grouch, went out of hla
room carrying his suit case. He met
Letty, who had been waiting on the
stairs. 'Morning, miss/ said Anthony,
and passed on, leaving Letty still more
"I guess she cried all tbat day, but
when night came she had made up her
mind. Of course a fine gentleman like
Anthony wouldn't want to marry a girl

romances. She had read about men

oeing true to death, and all that, and
tho made up her mind to make herself
worthy of Anthony.
"She took hor savings and went to
night school with them. By the end
of the year Letty was a fair stenog
rapher and bookkeeper, and, as the
young woman who kept books for the
'tavern' was leaving to got married,
Letty stepped into her shoes. The
salary waa a dollar less than her
wages had been when she held the
broom, but she was mighty glad. .
"At the end of the year Anthony
comeB on his route again, and when
Letty looked up from her books and
saw him standing, waiting to register,
her heart beat so that she couldn't
"Anthony looked at her, and his
grouch began to clear away. He al
ways liked pretty girls.
" 'You sure are a peach, klddo,' he
said, and chucked her under the chlh.
'How about tho movies tonight?'
"With that he was gone, loavlng
poor Letty in a heaven of ecstasy. Her
god had noticed her again; be was
going to take her out. That flashy
chap was a kin*- In Letty's eyes.
"I guess Ant ,ny wanted to take
her out all right, though he hadn't the
slightest notion tbat he had ever met
her before. Out he fell In with some
of the boys, and they got him Into a
poker game, and when he got out, at
midnight, he was $72 In the hol% And
by that time he had forgotten all about
Letty, who had been waiting all
primped up since eight o'clock.
"Letty cried herself to sleep, and
next, morning Anthony was gone be
fore she was down in the office.
"She gave up hope then, but she
stayed oc at the 'tavern,' keeping the
books. She wouldn't have anytblng
to do with the young fellows of Wake
field, but she was always nlce.to trav
eling men: Al^out the time when An
thony was' due again Bhe began to ask.
timid questions abont him. ? But no-,
body, told her much; you see, they
guessed something had happened be-'
tween them. But at last Letty got the
truth from a young salesman who was
making the rounds.

gone up to a good deal more than that
in value, resigned her position, and:
started loir" New York. She went to
King & Co.
" 1 want to see Mr. King on Impor
tant business,' she said.
"The clerk took her in and Mr
King stared at her, and she stared
back at him. There was something
tragical about Lett? In little things.
People didn't like the way she looked
into their minds.
"Mr. King was growing uncomfort
able when Letty burst out: 'If I pay
you will you let him out, Mr. King?'
'"I beg your pardon. Whom are
you talking about?' asked the bead of
" 'Mr. Anthony, sir/ said Letty, de
positing her two thousand dollars upon
tbe table, and Mr. King stared harder
Who are you?' he nsked, eyeing
first her and then the money. 'You
ain't his wife, bocause he wasn't mar

'I'm going to be,' said Letty qui
"Well, King was glad enough to drop
the proceedings, and he took Letty
round to the Jail to see him. Anthony
didn't feel too good to see King, but
when he learned that he was to be
free be saw the point.
You can thank this young wom

lot me tell you I wouldn't have taken
bor money If It hadn't been for the
faot that she wss engage* to you. In my
opinion she Is a good deal too good
for you." With which he turned on
his heel, leaving Letty and Anthony
looking at each other. To the best
of bis knowledge Anthony had never
seen her before in all his life. He
thought It was a game put up by some
of his friends.
"'Whose money was it, my deart*
" 'Mine,' answered Letty proudly. 1

but when I heard you were in trouble
it seemed?seemed only right (or me

"'But you told Mr. King you were
going to be married to me,' said
thony In bewilderment.
"'I wouldn't marry you for all the
wealth of Wakefield,' Letty flashed
out, and meant It, too. Somehow that
word Wakefield-recalled to Anthony

understood and. remembered her. His

Excellent Reasons Why Mississippi'!

' by People of State.
A bill for renovating Mississippi's
old statehouee calls for the legislature
of the state to consider a question
more or less continuously discussed by
Mleslsslpplans over since the comple

a comparatively modest sum the old
capltol may be restored and put to ex

today the sentimental plea for the
building's preson'atlon is strongly re
inforced by utilitarian arguments,
Mississippi's old etatehouse should
