are high-pedigreed Jap^ivc apaniela,
and were aimply glad to m e iheir mia

near the improviaed altaratooda hideoua
grinning dog of Chineae porcelain, and
cloae by a great bronse Buddha amiled
benignly in hia gilded niche.
The aetting for the wedding waa quite
appropriate, for the couple firat met
while traveling in Japan a year ago.
In apeaking of hia own life. the
atrange eventa aurrounding the wedding,
and how he arranged it, Mr. Delroy aaid:
"You know, I am the poraon who haa

Mra. Evans, is a marveloualy beautiful
woman. "Yea," he aaid, "I waa the

the imperial kenriela in Tokyo, and were

The three little doga are of the weep

aeemed to be seriously in need of the
handkerchiefa that peeped coyly out of
the pocketa of their little coata. Mr.
Delroy, however, permitted them to

"They have a complete wardrobe,"
aaid he, "made for them by aociety

And then Mr. Delroy gotdown to the

he waa sitting.
"The bride atood on thia during the
ceremony. "It waa made by Siberian
convicta, and containa 700 piecea."
Then he lighted the 100 candlea.
"I thought they would behave," aaid
he. "I had been very careful to train
them, and they are exceptional doga."
The bridearnaids are, indeed, excep?
tional doga. No prettier trio of Japa
p.eae apaniela may be found in New York.
"And don't forget thia was the big
geat thing ever pulled off in town,"
aaid Mr. Delroy, happily. "We mad?

Sotne of the sportsmen who have been
coming back to town after weekend

and the Eaatern Shore of Virginia are
telling remarkable storiea of the methods
of pot huntera in that locality, which at
one time waa one of the beat ducking

One duck hunter, who has ahot wild
fowl on the Eaatern Shore of Maryland
marshea for fifteen yeara or more, Col.
Clarence Tubman, waa here a few daya
ago. and told of the pot-hunting methoda
which have kiiled orT moat of the aport
in the Blackwatcr region of Maryland.
"The game lawa have not put a atop
to the pot-hunting there," aaid Col.
Tubman, "although the lawa were
framed to break up that very objec
tionable purauit. There are quite aa
many ducking piratea in the Black
water aection aa there were in the daya
when there were no game lawa. On
my laat trip to the hunting grounda I
learned of a man who ia openly violating
the hunting lawa almoat every night,
and ia alaughtering wild ducka by the
wholesale, only to sell them for what he
can get. Open aeaaon or closed aeaaon,
it ia all the aame to him. And hia
melhod ia ono of the moat flugrant I
have ever heard of.
"Thia particular ducking pirate and
hia younger brother live in the very
heart of the wild. marshy aeclion of
the Blackwater. Not a game warden
livea within 20 rnilea of them. Be ia
not a 8portaman in any aenae of the
word, aa I will shortly ahow, although
he haa hunted wild ducka there ever
aince he waa a boy. He haa made a
buainesa of it Neithcr of the brothers
ia what is known aa a wingahot. They
prefei- to ahoot their ducka on the water.
"But the piratea are not even con
tent with potling the ducka on their
natural feeding grounda. They have
conatructed a wooden trough which
they have 8ubmerged in one of the
amall lakea near their home. Into thia
aubmerged trough they pour about a
bushel of corn every day, beginning
early in the aeaaon, when the ducks
begin to arrive from farther South.
"Naturally cnough, the ducks learn
to feed from the trough, which is placed
about 12 inchea beneath the surface of
the ahallow lake. One can readily see
the reault?a long line of ducka atretched
acroas the pond, all feeding from the
"Now, here ia where the diabolical
part of it comea in. On the shore of
the lake they have rigged up a awivel
gun which fires a charge like a amall
cannon. The gun ia trained ao that it
will rake the water over the feeding
trough from one end of the trough to
the other. When night comea and the
ducka are greedily devouring the corn,
the elder brother creeps up to the
awivel gun, clapa hia hands, and in an
inatant every one of thoae ducka haa ita
head up trying to locate the sound.
There ia a flaah and a roar and moat of
the ducka are either dead or crippled.
Into the water gothe piratea' doga, and
a few minutes later the awivel gun haa
been amuggled away and there are a
hundred or ao wild ducka to be disposed
of next day. It ia one of the worat ex
amples of pot-hunting I have ever come
"Thia method of baiting the wild
ducka iapracticed all through the Black
water aection, alao in the ponda and
arnall atreama of the Eastern Shore of
Virginia. It haa done much to deplete
the aection of ita wild ducks. Although
moat of the pot-huntera have not the
nerve of thoae two brothera who operate
the awivel gun, many of them ahoot
wild ducka atnight. which haa the effect
of driving them away from the rooating
grounda. There ia a law in Maryland
which preventa ahipping of game ahot
there out of the State, but the pot
hunters have no trouble disposing of
