The season for hunting migratory waterfowl in Wisconsin opened Sept. 7. The federal law and the Wisconsin law both provide a daily open season from one-half hour before sunrise until sundown. The law provides a daily bag limit of fifteen wild ducks, including American coot or mudhen. In other words, ducks and American coot are all classed as ducks, and fifteen of either variety, or combined constitute a bag limit. A mixed daily bag limit of twenty birds combining any two or more of the va rieties of ducks (including the Ameri can coot or mudhen) wild goose, brant, plover, snipe, rail, rice hen, may be taken in one day. It is unlawful for any person to have in possession more than the daily bag limit of any one variety. Wild goose and brant, the daily bag limit is ten birds. Plover, snipe, rail, rice hen, the daily bag limit for each variety is fifteen birds, or a mixed daily bag limit of twenty birds. The possession of more than the daily bag limit of any one variety is unlaw ful. There is a permanent closed season on wood duck and quail, and a closed season on prairie chicken, partridge and grouse until the fall of 1919. It is unlawful to carry in any vehicle any gun, unless tne same is knocked down or in a carrying case. The penalty provided for the viola tion of any of the provisions relating to game birds is a fine of not less than $50.00 nor more than SIOO.OO, and in addition thereto $5.00 for each bird af fected by such violation, or by impris onment in the county jail not less than thirty days nor more than six months, or by both fine and imprisonment.

No, indeed, you don’t; you get the best your money can buy; you know that paying a few cents or dol lars more may mean hundreds of dol lars more when the crops are harvested. The same thing is true of clothes; by paying a few cents or dollars more for such goods as Hart Schaffner & Marx make, you get the quality that means many dollars saved in longer wear and greater satisfaction. And right here we want to emphasize this point: here we guarantee your satisfaction absolutely and “your sat isfaction” means to us just what satis faction means to you—it’s “up to you” in other words; you can always have your money back if you want it.
