Quebec, Oct. 5. How Colonel Roose
velt had to break the game' laws of
Quebec on his recent visit here and
kill an extra moose in order, to save
his own life is told in an -affidavit
sworn to by himself and his two guides
and now on file with the fish and- game
branch in the local parliament build
According to the .statements, the
colonel, who was the guest of the
Tourilli club, already had killed the
one moose allowed him by law and
was returning with two guides In the
canoe when they sighted another
moose at some distance. The animal
attempted to charge as soon as the
canoe came near the colonel and -his
guides being forced to put to deep
water. Colonel Roosevelt, thinking to
scare it, fired over its head, but this
only seemed to infuriate it
The way home lay through a small
stream connecting two lakes, and
shortly before them came to this tire
moose disappeared into the bush. and
the party thought that they had seen
the last of it. However, 'when the
canoe was half way down the stream
the animal again appeared
The water at this spot was only
about a foot deep and the moose be
gan his charge at about thirty feet
distant. Roosevelt fired over its head
despite the shouts of the guides, who
were urging him to kill the moose at
once. The moose kept on and then
the ex-president, realizing, as he said
afterward, that it was either his life
or that of the angry beast, fired again
and struck the latter in the chest at
about fifteen feet away. The animal
slowed up for a moment, but came on
again, and this time the big game hun
ter gave him the rest with a shot
through the head, which brought him
down. !

Such qualifications are eminently nec

Evangelist - Hits From the Shoulder
And Utters a Truth. :
We are not an especial admirer or
Billy Sunday, but. we are willing to
admit that he says some good-things,
of which, the following are sample..
A Plea For Wives.
"Boys, don't take a girl just because
of her looks when she's all fussed jip.
Uo call on her. Stay till about 10

glove or something and. go back the
next morning, early. , If she meets
yoju with her hair in curl-papers, a
shoe on one foot and a slipper on the
other take to the woods and don't
wait for the glove. If she is in a heat
working dress, with her "sleeves rolled
up and -a ribbon or thing-um-ma-jig
in her hair, grab her quick.
"And you married men: Brag on
your wives while you've got 'em.
Give them flowers and candy once in
a while; tell 'em you're glad to havtf
them around. And you'll see that old
bent back bent in ' mending your
socks and getting .your meals
straighten up on the installment plan.-
Try it. : - 'r
'Dont wait until they're six feet
underground and then offer-them
flowers and say, 'Here, smell ' these"
It's too late then. ' A whole lot of
money is spent for fine caskets that

spend money on their wife'p funeral

who bought a mule on the same re
commendation. Think of the mockery
of atombstone inscription, "At Rest,'
over the body of a woman who . has
worked herself to . death for ome.

"The training of a Martin Luther

training of a Caesar or an Alexander
