ASKS PROTECTION FOR GAME Itwsts less ton Hawaiian Fish and Game Association Asserts That Condition orrthe Islands Are Bad. The latest application received by the American Game Protective associa tion for club membership comes from Hawaii. The , Hawaiian Fish and Game association has been formed by a handful of the sportsmen in the territory who have realized that un less they take drastic steps the game on the islands will soon be exter minated, y Bruce Cartwright, secretary of the Hawaiian association, writes that for merly the islands were alive with game, but due to poor law enforcement and the lack of adequate protective measures the condition is now serious. The greater part of the population are Orientals, and to teach them that game must be protected will prove a laborious task, he says. The Chinese dove, Mongolian pheas-' ant and California quail are the most common upland game birds, although formerly peacocks, turkeys and wild chickens were plentiful. Golden plover are very numerous during migration.' Ducks and other shore birds also visit the Islands. The game animals in Hawaii con slct of goats, sheep and deer. The theory has been advanced and found the ear of the lawmakers on the is lands that deer are detrimental to forests. It is asserted that they de stroy forests by eating the protective covering from the roots of the trees. wtnt':x'-' ru ffian not top0int " -'are now awa COMMUTER HAS GREAT IDEA Warms His Hat Before Putting ltxOn When the Morning Is of the Chilly Order.

Suddenly a brilliant idea struck him. He dashed into the hall, rescued a soft hat from the hat rack and, slipping in to the living room, turned on the elec tric lamp and dropped his hat over it. His better half, who had been re garding him with amazement, but who had been married long enough to know not to ask questions in the middle of her husband's brilliant schemes, stepped to the door of the living room and smiled. "Come on, dear," she pleaded; "you're late now and I've got the love liest muffins." "Fine," was the response. "Suppose you wonder what's the big idea. Well, you know, when a man Is cold he puts on his hat. I've Improved on that. Got my hat on the lamp warming. The leather band Inside is always so cold these mornings."
