Jp 1 I DO* ZH® u® Duck Shooting Unlawful. A news dispatch from Wash ington gives a detailed account^ of the new law passed by Con gress relative to thd shooting of ducks and geese and certain other migratory birds. The States cannot do anthing to change the law. They cannot make duck shooting legal, and from now on, it seems that duck shooting in North Dakota will constitute a crime. The dis patch says: 'Hereafter it will be a crime to kill a wild duck anywhere in the United States. Wild ducks are now classed as as a migra tory birds by the government in a law just enacted and a fine of $100 and ninety days imprison ment are provided for viola tion of the law. For a long time there has been agitation in favor of federal legislation for the protection of game fowl to prevent their complete extermi nation. It has been said that wild turkeys, wild geese, and and some of the other wild fowl have .almost entirely disappeared all over the country. Wild ducks have become scarce and wild pigions have disappeared. "So the government put a bill through congress, as a rider of the sunilry civil approprations bill to prohibit the killing of mi gratory birds and fowl. The bill designates as migratory birds those which do not spend the en tire year in any one state but which move from the north in fall to the south, and from the south in the spring." New regulation fixing the sea sons in which migratory birds can be shot, were made public in Minneapolis lately by the United States Department of Agricul culture. The regulations are authorized under the recently enacted Weeks-McLean law and go into effect Oct. 1, 1918. The whole country is divided into northern and southern zones taking the place of about fifty districts existing undpr the pres ent laws of the several states. Spring shooting is absolutely prohibited and in most cases three months of shooting are al lowed on water fowl. No night shooting is allowed. The regulations divide the birds into'four classes and allow shooting in the two districts ac cording to the following sche dule. Northern Zone. Water fowl, Sept. 1, Dec- 15. Rail, Sept. 1, Dec. 1. Woodcock, Oct. 1, Dec. 1. Shore birds, Sept. 1, Dec. 15. Southern Zone. Water fowl, Oct. 1, Jan. 15. Rail, Sept. 1, Dec. 1. Woodcock, Nov. 1, Jan. 1. Shore birds, Sept. 1, Dec. 15. A** 1 "V.kll4 -, I OUT OF THE ARGUMENT The new federal law regulat ing the killing of wild birds is commended by H. A. Rider, ex ecutive agent of the Minnesota game and fish commission as a very desirable legislation for the protection of migratory birds. "The new federal law will make very little change in the game regulations of the state of Min nesota,'^ said Mr. Rider. "The open season for aquatic fowl begins Sept. 7, which cor regponds to our present law. The open season extends until Dec. 16, whereas our present law terminates the hunting season on Dec. 1. We are not greatly concerned over the regulations for rail and woodcocks, as these birds are not very plentiful in this state. I believe that all game officials and true sports men will approve of the federal act as it will compell uniformity in state regulation." The Best Medicine in the World. My little girl had dysentry very bad. I thought she would die.
