The dove season opened August 1 and will remain open until November 10. This gives Cape County hunters two open seasons now, squirrels and doves. With the approach of the open sea son for shooting wild fowl, the United States Department of Agriculture is warning sportsmen that the Federal regulations, as amended October 1, 1014, will be strictly enforced. Some misunderstanding has arisen from the fact that the various State laws do not always conform to the Federal regulations. The department will consider any recommendations submitted in good faith for amendment of the regula tions, but will hold no public hearing thereon, nor will it amend the regula tions prior to Oct. 15, 1915.

Charleston, Aug. 24 In examining the petitions of the various candidates for Postmaster in Cape Girardeau. Congressman Russell today found that men who had signed a petition in dorsing a candidate had also written him letters asking the appointment of another. Instead of aiding him in obtaining the sentiment of the patrons of the of fice, the petitions have only compli cated the situation. He did not make this discovery in time to take the mat ter up with the various candidates when they called to confer with him. Congressman Russell has found the name of several men on two petitions, and because of this confusion, it is bossiblethat he will not be able to make the announcement of his choice for I several flays, although he has not au thorized this statement. He said today that he had not de cided upon a man for the postmaster ship yet. He is giving each a fair hearing and he is making an endeavor to find out just how many people have signed more than one candidate's peti tion. It is possible that he may de cide to eliminate the names of the men who have permitted their signatures to go on two petitions. Close friends of the Congressman, who have been trying to ascertain his choice for the postmastership, have me without any success. What he intends to do can not be learned from either Mr. Russell or those who enjoy his confidence. to the regulations to the majority of sportsmen so far as it can be done, and at the same time gave wild fowl the necessary protection. Federal regulations divide the United States into two zones. Zone No. 1, the breeding zone, includes the States of Oregon, Idaho, Colorado, Ne braska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio. Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and all States north of them. Zone No. 2, the wintering zone, includes ail States south of those named. The regulations prescribe seasons in Missouri as fol lows: Waterfowl, Missouri, September ir 1 to February 1. Rails, coot, gallinules, Missouri, September 15 to January 1.
