Kerr's Phar macy. S Save The Buffalo ! Fifty years ago there were nu merous wild animals in the great west. There is now on foot a nation-wide movement to save the buffalo or bison from entire extermination. It is hoped to place such cows as can yet be secured on a good forty-acre pasture in some prop er locality where the increase in calves would repay the expense and eltort necessary to foster and extend the movement aboye mentioned. We are apt to look upon the bulTalo as being a native of a distant region , but the Illinois prairies were as much their na tive habitat as were those of Kansas. LaSalle's expedition (1082) ( ) had no sooner passed the Kankakee marshes than it came upon these animals in great numbers and from thereon down the Illinois and up the Missis sippi rivers Father Ilennepin found them quite as plentiful as they were in latter years on the upper Missouri. However , they were driven far beyond the Mis sissippi more than 100 years since by the encroachments of settlers and hunters and as many thousands as ever were killed by hunters , perished on the open prairies of Dakota and British America from exposure to the terrible winter storms of that section , leaving their bones bleaching everywhere long be. fore hunters had penetrated the region to any considerable num. bers. Almost any single town ship of eastern.South Dakota would have revealed in 18SO the skeletons of more of these animals - mals than now exist in all the country. The small remnant of bison now in the country should be preserved. The time is even now here when they are a rare exhibition of the animal life ex isting in this portion ot the country in pioneer days. St. Joseph Gazette. "The Glory Tliat Once Was Greece" Out in the valley Clear lake , and Brush and Cameron lie like mirrors in their queer trames. The reeds and marsh grass have pointed their vivid spires tall and stately above their moist beds. The lazy spoon bills , no more annoyed by the guns of the hunters , lloat upon the placid bosom of the water con tent and unafraid. The box hides are locked and the decoys are packed away in some dark cellar , for "the glory that once was Greece" is but a memory. The freshness of Spring will soon change to the austure browns of summer. The frost will nip the grass and the reeds into the yellows of fall. The ducks , now breeding far to the north , will bring their young southward , aud the decoys will come out of the cellar , and the locks will come off the box hides , and the hunters will stand hud dled in the chill of the early morning waiting for the grey of the dawn to break in the east and the day's ilight to begin. Then it will be that "the glory that once was Greece" shall have returned aud the most glorious of all sports thrill the heart and stir the blood of him who loves the open , the grey of the morning and the whistle of rushing wings to try his skill. Find A Relic. The discovery of a small copper - per axe undoubtedly of aborigi nal origin on the shore of Lake Superior has revived t h e theory oft combatted by metal- urgists that the ancient people of the region possessed the art of tempering. The axe appears to have been hammered from a piece of pure metal , it is so highly tempered that it offers more perfect re sistance than highly tempered steel. It is presumably a relic of a race antedating the Indians. They are lounging at the corners , they are loafing on the walk and they want a Mtuntiin winding up an ei ht-day clock ; they're a sore upon the service of this glad and smiling earth , where the man who earns his living is the only one of worth. They are loafing in the sunshine , and their talking never Hags , while their wives are doing washings and their kids are wear ing rags ; they are criticising Ted dy , roasting Taft and Uughes us veil , they are proving that the country is it sailing straight to hell ; and their wives are tired of sweating o'er the wash tub's greasy curve , while the lend and lazy loafers breathe the air they don't deserve. O , we chock the drunks in prison when we snort and prance around , and we soak the man whose chickens scratch an inch or two of ground ; we behead a hungry father who would swipe an oyster shell , but we let the lazy loafer stand around all day and , smell Walt Mason.
