"If there are any sportsmen who are thinking of signing the referen dum to hold up tlie game law, they should have been present at the meeting of true sportsmen at Water town Friday evening," says an op ponent of the agitation. "I was present at the meeting and I can as sure sportsmen that there are mighty few at Watertown who are in favor of referending the new law. The meeting was attended by more than a hundred mien, every one of whom .ia opposed to referending the law. This meeting was quite a contrast to the one held earlier in the week of those wilio are opposed to the law. The former meeting was attended by less than a dozen men and practical ly all of fchein market hunters or in terested in selling ammunition. "There are defects in the law which should be, and probably will be remedied. But to knock out the entire law would be mighty short sighted. "I had a talk with Senator C. H. Dngleeby otf Watertown, who more than any one person was responsi ble for the passing of the law at the recent session of the legislature. Even Mr. Englesby does not favor Bome of the provisions of the law, but Jie favors leaving the law stand as it is until the next legislature meets, then correct the Ibad features with amendments. Mr. Englesby, in speaking of the clause which some construe to prohibit the use of dogs in hunting prairie chickens, admits that it may Ihave that effect, but It was not so intended. The section of the law which is most' objected to reads ias follows: 'No person shall hunt, pursue, catch, take or kill any of the anim als in this chapter mentioned, with any dog or dogs.' "Those who are responsible for the law did not Intend to ibar out the hunting of chickens with dogs ,but it is claliimed that the courts have held in some states that chickens come under the Ihead of animals. "The sentimen of practically all of the sportsmen that I have come in contact with seems to be in favor of letting the law alone until the next legislature convenes, then cor rect by amendments. "What we have been after for years was a section to compel the talcing out of licenses which will furnish the money necessary for the enforcement of the law that we have 'secured. Now if we referend this law and it is knocked out we will 'be back where we were before and there is no telling when we will get another law through that is as good in its entirety as the present law. "At the meeting at Watertown Friday evening a movement looking to a law enforcement league was started which will have for its sole object the enforcement of the pres ent laws. It is a well known fact that the present game law has been ignored by a gang of market hiunters at Watertown and it is these men who are anxious to knock out the present law. But the true sports men of Watertown are up. in arms and even if the present law Is refer ended the old law is plenty strong enough to make It interesting for some of the Watertown pot hunters. "I hove conversed with a large numiber of Sioux Falls sportsmen since I arrived in the cits today and I have yet to find but one man who is In tavor of referending the law. "I would like to see Mr. Bancroft who has been- named as state game warden, call a meeting of the Bports znen of the state at some central point for conference which shall have for Its object the .preventing of referending the game law." $400 STOLEN PROM CAKLYLE MAH Carlyle, S.

A hundred or so knights of the 'forceps will be guests of Ab erdeen next Tuesday and they will hold a clinic in Elks hall lalsting ali day. At this some of the newest methods will be demonstrated.

The visitors come from a district of the state south of this city and they will be the guests of the Aber deen District society. The state is divided into five districts and the visitors come at the invitation of the local dentits, although this is not a joint meeting. Dr. A. W. Fossum is chairman of the Aberdeen society and Dr. Carl Fossum is in charge of the local arrangements.

The mandamus proceeding in the Dead wood court, which began Mon day, is another step in the very bitter light that has been carried on between the two towns of Lemmon and Uison for the location of the county seat of the new Perkins county, which was formed out of the eastern portion oof Butte county. In the election recently held the votes as they were reported showed a majority of thirteen for placing the county capital at Bison. Lemmon people declare that the election was marked by the greatest fraud and that Bison voted aliens and non residents to make up the major ity. Feeling firm in this conviction the county board, O'f which a majority favored Lemmon as a site for the courthouse, refused to move the county government from Lemmon, where it had been set up pending the election. Thereupon the Bison contingent rose in its wrath and started this suit, which is to compel the county officials to move the records and af fairs of the county to Bison in ans wer to the result of the election. Bison denies that there was fraud or Illegality in the election. In the meantime Bison has gone ahead and erected a new courthouse for iPerklns county. It is 30x50 feet In size and contains six fine large office rooms. This new town is aibout the youngest town to aspire to county seat honors in these parts. It was not born until Monday, March 22, a 4:15 p. m., according to the doctor's report made out by the .couny recorder. At that time the official plat of the town was filed just about forty-five days after the coun ty was formed. Deadwood, April 5.—Arguments were heard here today in the open ing of the mandamus proceedings which have bern staeted by the town of Bison against county officers of the new Perkins county to compel them to remove the county govern ment to Bison. The case is attracting much atten tion as It is the culmination of a bitter fight between the two towns as to which shall have the county seat.

EFFORT MADE TO SAVE GAME HSH OF STATE WATERS Lakes South of Here Would be Pro tected from Depletion by Game Hogs. Watertown, S. D„ April 7.—That the /pickerel which thrive in the Sioux river and in Lake Pelican, and to some extent in Lake Kampeska,are gaime fish, and should so be regard ed by the county commissioners, was the substance of a motion passed by the Codington County Game and Fish Protective association at the meet ing in the rooms of the Business Men's union. The decision was not unanimous, Ibut there was a fair pre ponderance of sentiment in favor of classing the pickerel as a game fish. The club also brought up the mat ter of stopping the indiscriminate slaughter of the pickerel at this time of the year 'by means of shooting and spearing. According to current report, liter ally wagon loads of pickerel are daily being taken out of Pelican and the outlet to Lake Kampeska. The club asks that this be stopped at once. iFIsh that are now beting caught are "running," that is, they are leav ing the haunts of the winter for the spawning grounds. Females taken now are laden with spawn, and the death of every such fish means the destruction, without exaggeration, mffllsvttai \f 41 at* ot awm SW1*, 9 millions of fish eggs. ag A 19-pound pickerel was recently killed (in local waters.

Sioux Falls, S. D., recently was de prived of the divorce Industry by the people of the state, who voted that they had suffered enough from un pleasant notoriety.

CHANGES IN BASEBALL 1 RULES AT A GLANCE' What the New Season Will Show in the Way of Variation in the National Game. A substituted pitcher must pitch until tihe man at bat when the pitch er takes his position, has either 'been put out or reached first base. In case of interference with a leld er or batsman, the ball is not in play until the pitcher, standing in his position, holds it and the umpire calls "play." A batted ball that touches the per son of he umpire or a player, "while on or over fair ground" is a fair hit and a batted ball that touches the person of the umpire or of a player "while on or over foul ground" is a foul hit. Hereafter in caso of a player's ejectment from game by umpire such player is out of both game and grounds. He must either go to the club house or leave the grounds en tirely, under penalty of forfeiture of the game by the umpire. Hereafter any ground rule must be acceptable to the captain of the vis iing team and if objectionable to said visiting captain, the umpire has the power to adopt or reject said ground rule or rules. Slim Women of Hungary. The women of Hungary regard a •mail waist as the greatest possible beauty, and they will endure' anything tn order to put on an appearance of be ing small walsted. Tight lacing is car ried on to an extraordinary extent, and the waist Is compressed by force until one would think that the owner could hardly breathe. Yet in this confined itate the #omen will plunge into the wildest of Hungarian dances, known as the czardas, aud prance frantically like ballet dancers until at the end they sink, gasping, exhausted and well nigh suffocated, on a sofa. As they grow older most of these slim beauties become enormously stout, and then they are regarded as quite old. The Hungarians, though they resemble the Turks in many ways, have not the Turkish admiration for fat women or the English eJi'.lratlon for elderly made up belles.

What She Should Wear.V Nowadays it is not the date\of a woman's birth, but the Btate of\ ber figure, her complexion and her feair which determines what she should ior should not wear. When certain nasty little lines establish themselves about! the nose and eyes and forehead, when the back gets middle-aged and the hips aggressive, It is folly to continue to wear what was becoming In hap pier days. But these sad things do not always follow close upon the heels of birthdays. One woman may acquire them at 80 or 85, another not till she is 60, or never at all. So It is impossi ble to make one definite law to say "At Jl} or 85, or 40 or 45, thou shalt do or-not do so and so," and it Is just as foQllsh for young looking 45 to wear old looking clothes as for old looking 45 to stick to the garb of the youth But there are, of course, certain things that are suitable all along the line, and Into which the Question of age' and freshness need not enter.
