In an official opinion Attorney Gen.
Edward C. Crow holds that tho provis
ions of the act of 1803, and the amend
ment thereto, passed by tho General
Assembly of this state in 1805, has ex
pired by limitation. Tho act provides
that it shall be "unlawful for ami Uunng
the period of livo vears next succeeding
the passage thereof for any person to
sell or attempt to sell for the puriose of
shipping outside of the county where
killed, or ship or attempt to ship from
the eountv where killed to any other
countv in tho state, or to any point out
side of the state, any quail, pinnated
irrouse. prairie chicken, deer or turkey."
Tho law as it existed under the act of
ISlXi did not include the words "deer or
turkey." Tho amendment of 1S95 does
not undertake to extend the time of the
operation of tho law, but simply provides
that the two additional species, ueer anu
turkey, shall be included in its prohibi
tory features. Hence, the law expired
by limitation five years after the passage
of the act of lH'.K.

Keeping too Warm.
The prevalence of colds can be at
tributed principally to the common vice
ot becoming overheated. When the
temperature is 10 or more below zero it
is the practice of some persoc3 to stay
indojrs as much as possible and bake
Iiemselves. The office man turns on
the steam, shuts down the windows and
roasts. In this unnatural and unwhole
some atmosphere hi remains three or
four hours, soaks with perspiration and
lazicess, and then goes out into the open
air. Of course, he fevls the cold, for bis
clothing is dajip and the cbacge is too
sudden. Arrived at home, he spends
'.he evening in a superheated air, and is
thus a ready victim of influenza. Then
le wonders why he suffers so much
i'rom cold and takes cold so easily.
There is a proper moderation t be
observed in the b?atiog of offices and
living rooms. There are persons whose
blood is so poor or whose circulation is
so weak that they are not comfortable
.n a temperature under SO. But with
the vast majority, such indulgence is
simply a habit and a dangerous anu
senseless one. One can become accus
omed to such high temperatures acid
actually learn to enjoy them. But each
,l tasle is not natural, but acquired.

Shot While Hunting.
Last Wednesday Jack Meek and bis
son, Lon, went down to Lum Peeler's,
nliout seven miles from the city, to shoot
quails in a grove near by. After being
out a little while they becamcsepa ated
and each hunted independent or each
other. A bunch of quails Hew up and
Jack shot into them. Lon was standing
behind a brush pile, facing his father,
and at about thirty five yards from hi:n
vhen the shot was tireiL No sooner had
10 tired than tho father heard the son
cry out in anguish, and rushing to the
place from whence the sound came he
tound that Ixin had been shot in the
face and eyes and was suirerir.g terribly.
As Mjon as possible he got the wounded
Iiov to the house of Mr Beeler. who is a
relative, and Drs. J. M. and J. C. Tracy
were immediately summoned. They ait
ministered chloroform and examined the
wounds carefully and will wait a time
for further develojiement. They found
that six shots had taken effect on the
face. The most Nrious is found in a
.-hot passing into the inside half of tho
right eyeball, ruining the eye. Lon was
brouirht to his home in this eitv vester
riiejoung man and his parents have
the profound symnathy of the whole
community, and it is sincerely hoped
lhat the deplorable accident will not
prove as serious as it now nppears.
