James Wilson, Secre tretary of Agriculture, representing the Unit ed States Government, in the formal opening of the show some years ago, spoke in part as follows: "The- Chicago International Live Stock Exposition is the most magnifi cent expression of progressive breeding and feeding that, there ever has been in the history of any country. v "At present they do things arouod here, and the thing they are doing here is to help us toward the develop ments of the domestic animals of the United States, as it is the greatest in terest in America, "The meeting you have here now, gentlemen, on this ground is one of the most magnificent examples of progrtws in the world's history. What a long time we waited for all this! Forty years ago Congress endowed agricul tural stations,' and experimental sta tions later, for the purpose of helping the farmer toward the establishment of the science of breeding and feeding, among other things, and what an illus tration we have today with regard to the latter. Our people are beginning to learn something about feeding. Take one of our crops, 2,600,000,000 bushels of corn grown this year, which is' to go to market, the greater part of it through our domestic animals. But our people are learning how to feed economically and prevent waste. "The most interesting feature of this exhibit to me, 'gentlemen, is the presence of those college boys. Chi cago, with all Its .millions, could not have got fifty-five agricultural college boys here six years ago. . Tbey were not in America or Canada then men who know how to score cattle as these young men have scored and are scoring, and will score them throughout this exposition. It means that we will go to the front of a people with regard to the production of meats." The dates of this year's show are from December 2d to 9th, and many new attractions have been added in coaenction with this yesr's event. Concert Was rine. Many pleasant remarks have been made by the people of L'Anse, compli menting the high school athletic asso ciation upon their selection of the Pol matier Sisters, who rendered a concert at the Opera House Wednesday even The audience were spell-bound at the wonderful Interpretations of tone and harmony given by the entertainers.

Lansing, Mich., Nov. 16 -Major W. R. Oates, state game and fish warden; returned today from the upper penin sula, where he had been investigating conditions in regard to the hunting of deer. The major haa formulated . a plan for the lessening of accidenta to human beings that he believes will be loffective. This is to prevent the shoot ing of any but male horned deer. "Lots of deer,' said the major, "and plenty of hunters. ' The latter are crcx!3 the straits now In army corps and withia a faw days Cire will bcin the tl!83t cf titx czxczzzta tj the srere. llzzl tl ths trtcn wdisJ far tie tzT t) cti Izlzz 2 ncrlh.

Asked what percentage of chances a man takes in going into the woods in these days of high power rifles and numerous amateur hunter, Warden Oatea replied, 'Pass a law prohibiting the killing of any except male horned deer and the mortality record of our woods would be greatly decreased, in my judgment. Excitable hunters, as it is, shoot first and then look to see what stirred in the bushes. If there was a penalty for killing doe, then the would have to wait until he could de termine whether it was really a deer or another man with a gun, and the loss of life would be lessened." MRS.

SZc at a3 d--tx Pingree, The First Insurgent No matter whether we follow Gov ernor Wilson of New Jersey as progres sive democrats, or whether we follow Senator LaFolIette of Wisconsin as insurgent republicans, or whether we , are old line democrats or Taft republic ans, or what not, the interest in the work of the late Hazen S. Pingree as mayor of Detroit and governor of Michigan increases with the years that pass. It is for this reason that the se ries of stories now announced by De troit Saturday Night on the life and work and character of "Michigan's pi oneer progressive" is - both timely and worthy of attention. And this series should prove all the more attractive since it is designed to be an anecdotal biography rather than a formal and se quential and colorless narrative. It aims to picture as accurately as pos sible the blunt humors, the buoyancy, the picturesqueness, the wrath and the joy which made Pingree a hope to some of our citizens, a menace to others and a thrilling personality to all. Julian Hawthorne he was such stuff as Wash ington and Lincoln were made of. The English Stead suggested him for the presidency. LaFolIette himself uncov ers before the memory of the man who showed him so much of the path he has followed for years. . Therefore, with a decade of perspective through which to view him, Pingree is worth seeing and studying again. Besides the Pingree series, Saturday Night offers an unusual amount pf en tertainment and instruction in the reading matter it has outlined for its fall and winter weekly issues. Among the writers who will contribute or are now contributing to tbe pages of Sat urday Night are Montague Glass, auth or of the quaint Potash & Perlmutter stories; M. Quad, beloved by thousands of Michigan readers; O. Henry, the im mortal short-story writer; Willia m A. Pinkerton, the great American de tect ive; E.

Bowen, the foremost auth ority on football in the middle west; Jacob Nathan, whose articles on the corpor ate excess tax are now being com piled ' by the manufacturers for genera 1 cir culation among the business men of Michigan; H. M. Nimmo, editor in chief, whose editorials have long com manded state-wide attention; and many others who are specialists on the vari ous subjects on which they wri te.
