Each hunting ground was known by its own name, aud was banded down by inheritance in the male line from one generation to an other. It was protected from tres pass, the punishment for which sometimes was the supreme pen alty, in certain cases supposed to be inflected by conjuring against the trespasser's life or health. In dians passing through the hunting ground of another family usually sought permission, and if by necessity game had to be killed, the pelts were delivered or -other compensation was made to the owners of the land. It was cus tomary, in some cases, when a particular family had a poor sea son on its own hunting grounds, for it to secure the temporary right to use a part of the hunting grounds of some neighboring fam ily until times improved. Within each family hunting ground the conservation of the game was looked to with the greatest care. The Indian family knew the approximate number of deer, bear, moose, caribou, otter or beaver in its own hunting ground, and, in the case of some tribes, regulated with strictness the number to be killed each year, so as not to encroach upon the necessary increase. If the season for large game had been bad theof family would sometimes restrict itself to a fish diet for months on SALE OF SCHOOL AND OTHER STATE LANDS. State of Minnesota State Auditor's Office.

Before the era of European influence the Indians never destroyed all the members, but took such care of the beaver as well as of the other food animals in his hunting ground as the farmer does of his herds and flocks. Nowadays, however, the natives have realized the hope lessness of conserving their re sources where they have to com pete with the avarice of the white man, so in some regions they un dertook to "get all they could be fore the white man cleaned it up." The Timagami band of the Ojib ways "even went so far as to di vide their districts into quarters, Each year the family hunted in a different quarter in rotation, leav ing a tract in the center as a sort of bank, not "to be hunted over uuless forced to do so by a short age in the regular tract." Among certain Indians, like the Micmacs, these tracts were held together so long as there were sons, grandsons or nephews in the male line to in herit them, and they were some times increased by intermarriage or inheritance. The Indians of Kentucky, .says Dr. Clark Wissler, "were in the habit of burning off forest areas regularly so as to provide pastur age for the buffalo, thus enticing him to remain in the country. Again, the Indians living in the regions where wild rice grows were observed to take certain pre cautions to protect the rice beds, even to facilitating their growth. The conservation of game in theGeneral family hunting ground was theing essential fact in the existence of these Indians, who lived mainly on game, lor upon it their lives de pended. Other uses of natural resources by them were relatively small, although the hunting In dians of Peonsylvani used nearly all of the ediole wild plants, and cultivated Indian corn, beans and pumpkins, and even maintained considerable orchards of fruit. With his slight knowledge of the earth, and what it can provide for the use of man, these Indians, naked savages to our ancestors, and mere bushmen. to far too many present day Americans, had yet mastered the essential fundamental a continuous prosperity. They knew how to use the natural re sources, without exhausting them. Christian Science Monitor. CARD O THANKS.
