THE CALUMET NEWS. ZYBZSCO CONGRATULATES LEHTO ON RECENT VICTORY BAZAAR AND CONCERT FOR FINNISH LUTHERAN CHURCH f TORCH LAKE NEWS j j HANCOCK "I 1 MERCHANTS WANT BETTER RATES OF INSURANCE Committee Appointed at Meeting of Association Last Night to Look Into Matter. PEDDLERSLICENSES DISCUSSED An Important meeting of the Portage Iike Merchant' association was held lant night In tho olfiee of the secretary, II. s. Montgomery, in the Kauth block at which tho matter of securing uni form ordinances In tho Portage Lake towns for Itinerant and transient dealers and the securing of lower In surance rates were acted upon and committees appointed to act In rela ti jn to each of these qucst'ons. Notwithstanding tho many Im provements made In Hancock during the past few years and the better fire protection afforded by the building of water mains In all parts of tho city, the rates of Insurance, Instead of being lowered, have been raised, until now thy are at a point which Is consid ered entirely too high In view of cx lst'ng conditions. The merchants of Hancock and Houghton desire to bring about a readjustment of rates and 10 this end a committee was appointed last evening to confer wit tho proper Insurance official to consider a re ratlng of property In Hancock nnd Houghton. Thrs committee is com posed of Henry L. ttaer and Tnul Swift and they will communicate with Mr. Trcvnrrow at Negaunee asking the latter to name somo date convenient for him on which he can meet with the local merchants to go Into the mat ter. ' Yin question of securing uniform ordinances relative to peddlers and transient dealers licenses was consid ered and a committee composed of N. A. Meta and Oeorge Huppe of Hancock and I R Hennes and Paul Swift of Houghton was appointed to meet with the committees of ' the Hancock an 1 Houghton councils to devise a scale of suitable rates. The council committee chosen Monday night consists of Al dermen Holland, Congdon and O'Neill. The Houghton council met last night and the appointments of a committee was left In the hands of President Mil ler. The announcement of tho person nel of the Houghton committee has nit as yet been communicated to the Han cock officials or the Merchants' asso ciation, but probably will be made known today or tomorrow. A Joint meeting of the three committees will then be named at which legal advice, probably from the city and village at torneys of the two places, will be ob tained and an effort made to secure such revision of the ordinances on the peddling question as may be deemed best. The action taken by the mer chants Is Intended as a protection to themselves and to their patrons as well, and is not meant to Infringe n any one's rights or privileges. When the new ordinances are adopted it is tho intention of the Merchants asso ciation to use every effort to see that they are enforced. Hereafter all persons will be forbid un to dump ashes into the ravine near the Kerredge theater, an order to this effect having been Issued this morning. The place has been used quite extensively as a dumping place for a.shes and other refuse, but it Is thought It will interfere with the washing of sand Into the ravine next spring, and other means of disposal will have to "be found.

In the Baltic provinces and through out northern Germany and in Denmark the stork Is met with everywhere dur ing the summer months, says the West minster Gazette. While traveling the other day from Danzig to Marlenberg I saw several in the fields and on nests upon buildings quite close to the rail way. In Denmark, however, It Is less numerous since the draining of the morasses was begun. It Is still fairly common In Holland and Belgium, but In France, owing to Its being persecut ed and the fact of none of the original race surviving, It Is seen only as a bird of passage. In Alsace and Lorraine Its better treatment Is rewarded by a cer tain number remaining during the sum mer to breed. In passing through Savoy in April and in the autumn it meets with heart less persecution, especially on Its re turn toward the south, when the young birds are often much fatigued. It oc curs generally throughout Turkey and Is fairly common In Greece. It is met with occasionally in central Italy and Sicily, and Is plentiful in some parts of Andalusia. It is believed that on one of their migrations which took place a little af ter the middle of last century, the white storks experienced some sort of catas trophe, as they returned In greatly re duced numbers, and ever since then they have been considerably less nu merous than before. The periods of migration with the storks are very regular. They arrive In central Europe generally between March 19 and 25 and prepare to depart at about the end of August, first congregating in large bands, which break up as the adult In dividuals come and collect the young together to conduct them southward. It appears that they migrate In large flocks, flying mostly by night. The males and females, it Is sup posed, migrate separately, the former undoubtedly arriving about a week before the latter to take charge of the old nest or to settle on a favorable spot for nldlflcatlon. Wherever the stork Is met with In Europe, excepting In parts where Its occurrence Is rare, where It meets with the common fate of rarity, It Is pro tected. The peasants mostly hold It as sacred and consider it as a sort of protector or house god to the house on which It nests, and one will sometimes sell a nest to a neighbor to bring him luck. In which case the bird will dis continue to occupy 1L Often an old wheel or something else Inviting Is fixed on a roof to induce a stork to build. The nest itself Is constructed of branches and twigs, neatly lined with grass, straw or any other suitable material. It takes up much space and every year it is added to, so that the peasant upon the roof of whose house it nests Is obliged sometimes, when the bird Is absent, to remove a portion of It In order to lessen Its weight.
