The National Game Law.
The sportsmen 6f this section,
who as a class favor legislation
that will protect our game and
and fish and will stand for the
enforcement of the new national
law protecting migratory birds,
have for some time anxiously
awaited definite and positive in
formation relative to the rules
laid down by the commission to
whom referred. President Wil
son recently affixed his signature
to these regulations and they
have gone forth to the country
under proclamation of the presi
dent.
In enforcing the law, national
game wardens are already being
appointed, but the advisory
board which assisted the Depart
ment of Agriculture in framing
these rules, assures the public
that snap judgment is not to be
taken upon offenders, before
general publicity is given to the
new rules.
The following classes of mi
gratory birds are included with
in the protection of the law:
water fowl including brant,
ducks, geese, swans, cranes,
rails, shore birds including plov
er, snipe, woodcock, etc., wild
pigeons and doves; and insec
tivorous birds, such as bobolinks,
catbirds, chickadees, flickers,
cuckoos, humming birds, mar
tins, njeadow larks, bull bats,
oreoles, robins, swallow's, wai
blers, thrushes, whippoorwills,
woodpeckers, wrens and all
perching birds, which feed en
tirely or chiefly on insects.
A daily closed season is estab
lished for all migratory birds
from sunset to sunrise and the
closed season on insectiverous
birds is from January 1 to De
cember 31. which means a clos
ed season the year round.
A closed season for five years
or until September 1, 1918 is
fixed on pigeons, cranes, swans
and all shore birds except plover,
jacksnipe, woodcock and the
greater or lesser yellow legs;
and wood ducks are also protect
ed the whole year in many
states, but not in Arkansas.
Migratory birds are protected
after January 1, 1913 on two of
our great rivers, the Mississip
pi, between Minneapolis and
Memphis; and the Missouri
from Bismarck to Nebraska City
from hunters in boats or other
floating device.
The country is divided into
two zones, a northern or breed
ing zone known as No. 1 and a
Southern or wintering zone No.
2, which includes our own state.
In Zone No. 2 which lays
south of Latitude 40 degrees
and the Ohio River, the
closed season on waterfowl
shall be between January 16 and
October 1, except in certain
states, where the closed seasons j
vary. The closed season on
shore birds in this zone is from
December 16 to September 1;
on rails and coots from Decem
ber 1 to September 1; on wood
cock from January 1 to Novem
ber 1. There are exceptions to
these seasons, but Arkansas fol
lows the rules for Zone 2
throughout.
An Able Defense of the Doctor.
The doctor is a good fellow.
His living depends upon our get
ting sick, yet he cheerfully tells
us how to keep well. We call
him up at 3 a. m., tell him the
baby has the colic, and if he does
not do a tango for our place im
mediately, we hold it against
him all our lives. After he has
Worked with the little fellow the
rest of the night and part of the
day and has gone home and pur
sued the even tenor of his way
for a couple of months and then
i he happens to mention to us that
| we owe him a couple or three
| dollars, we go up in the air and
1 ask him how in the dickens he
I expects us to pay him before
fall. In the fall—some fall—we
swap him a runty calf or make
him “take it out in trade.” He
spends his whole life trying to
1 find out what is the matter with
us and how to cure us, and we
know more in a minute than he
would in a thousand years, and
we tell him so—at least we tell
the neighbors so. If a patient
gets well we attribute it to his
constitution, if he fails to recov
er we put a dent in the doctor’s
reputation. All of which the
doctor seems to consider only a
part of his business and serenely
goes about trying to keep us out
of the churchyard and himself
out of the poorhouse.—Chandler
(Okla.) Tribune.

Underwood Out For Senate.
With his heart set on and his
energies bent to the perfection
and passage of the tariff bill,
' Oscar W. Underwood has had
no time to think of any office
higher than that of congress
man. But with the bill guided
safely to the president’s desk
his labors came to an end, and
he could look about and take cog
nizance of other matters.
The result is that he has
this w'eek hung his shield in the j
Alabama senatorial lists, and is j
ready for a tilt with any and all
comers.
There were already two con
testants in the field. Richmond
Pearson Hobson and Henry D. |
Clayton made their announce
ments some months ago . Both ]
of these are men of national rep- ^
utation. Hobson’s Spanish-A
merican war record is known
wherever history is read- His
political services are less con
spicuous, for politics is never as
illustrious as war laurels. But j
he was presidential elector in j
1904 ,and served as congress
man in the Sixtieth and Sixty
first congresses. He has added
to his capacity for public work
by several lecture tours w'hich
gave him opportunity for obser
vation of general conditions. He
is a good speaker and an indefa
tigable campaigner.
Henry Clayton has also sat in
the electoral college for his
state and helped to cast her
presidential vote. He is an old
er man than Hobson by at least
a dozen years, and has been ac
tive in the affairs of his state,
and represented his district in
1 Onr7 1 1 T4
Wllgl. VUO i.1 Vlll AUl/ I l/V Xl/XXi A V/
was he whom Governor O’Neal
appointed last summer to fill out
the senatorial term left vacant
by the death of Senator Johnson,
and he is regarded as a strong
capable man.
But even with two such op
ponents, Oscar Underwood’s
election is probable, for Alabama
will hardly fail to reward him, as
far as in her lies, for the splen
did work which he did, not only
for her, but for the whole na
tion in shaping and guiding the
Democratic tariff legation. If
ever a man worked faithfully
and heroically for a government
j measure, he worked for that.
I Today Democracy stands with
a vindicated tariff promise large
ly through the efforts of this
sturdy, finely balanced states
man from the state the interpre
tation of whose name he has
changed to “here we never rest
until we accomplish our aims.”
Mr. Underwood’s emphasized
service to his state before he be
came a national figure was to aid
materially in securing the pres
ent state constitution. He has
stood in congress for the Ninth
Alabama District since 1895.—
Commercial-Appeal.—Mr. Clay
ton has since announced his re
tirement from the race.
GIVING OUT
The Struggle Discourages Many
a Citizen of Newport.
Around all day with an aching
back,
Can’t rest at night;
Enough to make any one give
up.
Doan’s Kidney Pills are help
ing thousands.
They are for kidney backache;
And other kidney ills.
Here is convincing proof of
their merit:
Waldo McAdams, painter and
contractor. E. Race St., Searcy,
Ark., says: “I had many symp
toms of kidney complaint- the
trouble being caused no doubt,
by my work. There was a stea
dy, ache across my back and the
kidney secretions were irregu
lar in passage. A few boxes of
Doan's Kidney Pills cured me.”

Perhaps that is still your method

Not What She Meant.
The other evening at a simple
social function, opened with a game of
,ards, the host caused quite a stir
imong the ladies present by announc
ng after the guests had seated them
selves at the tables: “If everybody’s
nade up, we’ll start.” Self consciously
hey looked at one another and ln
oluntarlly their hands went to their
