The affair was one of the biggest '-leven that has been pulled off in ai d long time in that place, and a large I i- crowd was in attendance. The ex ~t pense of the dance was borne by l the Providence boys, and the visit- I or were admitted free. It is due t. to this fact that the dance was such sucess, uas vidsitors feel that it is hardly worth the while to travel Sthirty miles to a dance and then pay to get in.

This takes the place of the former statute that allowed free hunting in war'ds, a 5i cent parish iicense and a $:t rc, state-wide license. With the new law everyone going into the tields or. marshland with a gun must have a license, and the state-wide dollar license will permit hunting in any portion of the State save parishes where special regulations protect certain game for a special closed season or on areas set aside for rest ing places or refuges for the game. There were but few changes in the' open season for hunting of game birds and the only ones so affected were quail, wild turkey gobblers. snipe and upland plover, or papa-' botte. The season for Bob White quail and turkey cocks open Novem ber 15 and closes March 1. Thel season for snipe opens November i and closes March 15, thus lengthen ing shooting season for this fovorite game bird one month and permits shooting when these birds are most plentiful. For all the other birds on the game list: Geese, ducks, night herons (grosbac), rails (mudhens). gallinules, coots, (poule d 'dau), sand pipers (cherooks), tattlers, curlews, plovers, doves, and red-winged black birds, the regular seasons prevails, viz., November 1 to February 15. A special closed season for three' years, to December 1919, was en-i acted for the following game birds: Prairie chickens. killdeers, unland plovers, ring-necked pheasants and turkey hens. The law further pro vides that after 1919 these birds may be hunted from November 1 to December 31 of any year. Announce ment was made by the Department of Conservation in relation to the passage of this special closed season that all agents would be given special orders to enforce this act to the letter and bring all offenders before the courts The Legislature also repealed the law that permitted the killing of sea gulls during an open season. The repealing of this act now places these valuablesea birdson the "protected" list ath other valuable insectivorous birds of the State, and any killing of sea gulls will lay the violator open to the penalties prescribed for the killing of non-game birds. The new laws were enacted per taining to the fur-bearing animals or various game animals, and the open season and regulations in force for the past yar will apply for the com ing huntilg secoons. The hunting of squirrels will not be lawful until the first of October. The hunting of dee# will open in the northern sone, Vernon, R.pides, Avoyolles, Coceor dia rand all parishes north of them. September! 15 and close January 5. The seasol for the southern zone, all parisheb south of those named above, opeN t fifteen days later, October 1 and closes January 20 The speciat attedtitn' df sportsmen and other hunters is called to the fact that the shooting of valuable insectivorous birds, known locally as vaille and grasset is unlawful, and violators of the non-game bird are liable to heavy penalties in the courts. The robin, the kingbird (black gras set), cat bird (black caille), wood thursh (oaille pivelee or speckled caille), red-eyed vireo (green gras sets), little green heron (cap cap). cedar birds (oltolans,. are now pro teeted and all hunters are warned by the conservation authorties not to kill them. The $1.00 state-wide hunting li cense applies only to resident amateur htnters.
