Killing game out of season Is one
of the most Iniquitous' offenses
against the laws on the statute

game laws were obeyed this pleasure

be the home of game birds.
The packing companies have form

that they were reported to be alarm

when he could not annihilate them.
The town of Gervals was destroyed
yesterday. The loss Is estimated at
more than $100,000. This Is where
Tracy and Merrill enacted some of
the most daring escapades In the
early chapter of tho famous man
hunt. If such destruction should fol
low the entire trail of the outlaws,
the principal cities of two states
would be destroyed.
President Roosevelt is .artvlsed to
seek rest. What is considered rest
for a president would be Irksome toll
forvmost men. The matters of state
demand his constant attention, and
there are politicians that will And
their way to him and bore him though
they knew It would cost his life. A
well president deserves the sympathy
of the public and a sick one should
have the prayers and best wishes of
all of the people.
The fight Is on In earnest In Port
land against the wide-open town.
Merrill has been compelled to go be
fore the grand Jury as a witness to
statements ho made In tho council
chambers. Merrill only made state
ments that were commonly known in
Portland, but he emphasized It In a
manner as If he knew the transac
tions personallly. A great many
things are known to a moral cer
tainty that can not bo proved In a
court of Justice. Portland's crusade
promises to bo an exciting one If not
an effective one.
The national Irrigation congress
which convened at Colorado Springe.
Colorado, yesterday Is ono of the
most Important bodies that has evor
met for the good of the great West.
This organization has been hammer
ing at congress for years to obtain
assistance to reclaim the arid lands
of the West and It was through It
that the bill was Introduced and
passed. Its purpose now Is to aid
the government In forming such
plans as will the most speedily put
tho work into operation, and securo

of acres .iiat are now lying Idle.
Tho failure on tho part of the pub

The national capital has never
done a greater thing than she is do
ing at this time. The (. A. R. Is re
celving one of the grandest ovations
In Its history. These old heroes are
rapidly passing away, and while they
live the nation owes them the duty
of honoring them wherever the occa.
sion arises. The survivors of the
Spanish-American war are already
dividing the honors with them,
and it Is only a question of time un
til the old veterans will occupy a po
sition with the new heroes like that
of thoveterans of the war with Mex
ico to the veterans of the civil' war
Their deeds of valor will In a meas
ure bo forgotten In the fresher sto
ries of the heroes of San Juan, San
tiago, Manila and in the warfare that
followed in the Philippines.
The papers are making a howl
about a New York clergyman who re
cently sued and recovered for servi
ces rendered In conducting a funeral.
He was called outside of his parish
to perform the service, and It is
claimed that as he was not serving
the congregation that had him em
ployed he had the right to charge
tho outsider. Then others claim that
a preacher should not think of charg
ing for saying a good word about
deceased and uttering a last prayer
for his soul. Anyway, the court held
that the divine should bo paid. Why
should not preachers be paid for
their services the same as other
people? Everything Is being brought
to a business basis. A preacher of
today must be educated and equip
ped or he cannot get a position. It
costs money to do this. Tho cold
charities of tho world have other
places to spend their force without
taking up preachers and educating
them. When one skirmishes for an
education and equips himself to as
to be able to fill a pulpit for an In
tellectual audience ho Is certainly
worthy of compensation. Tho
preacher of this day and time who
would go about the country taking
his chances on charity alone, only
wearing that which Is given him and
eating from tho same source, would
soon look worse than a tramp and
got as lean as a fence post In the
desert. Ho would bo, called a fa
natic or lunatic and be shunned by
the best church people and would
not he admitted Into their society.
Yes, pay the preachers, They earn
their salaries and besides, they have
troubles of their own.

Every man and woman ought lo
road some good book for an hour or
two hours each day. Having resolved
to do this, a man ought to make It
a solemn duty, as It were a lellgloim

In order to get the most out ot
reading, one should read with some
system, suggests a wrltor In tho San
Francisco Bulletin. It Is well to
cover a limited period of history and
to read everything, formal histories,
biographies. autobiographies, mo-
molrs. diaries and letters, relating to
that period. Or let the thread of one's
reading be some branch of natttrnl
or political science, such as biology
or economics. But if one confine him
self only to standard novels and
plays, and go through Shakespeare,

disease. One false step, one mistake,
and the attack conies swift and sudden.
The mistake which commonly opens the
way for an attack by disease is neglect
of the symptoms of stomach trouble.
When eating is followed "by undue full
ness, belchitigs, sour or bitter risings,
etc., disease is attacking the stomach.
The best way to frustrate such an at
tack is to use Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery. It cures diserses of the
stomach and other organs of digestion
and nutrition, and makes the body
strong and healthy.
"I irai tuflering very much with my head and
stomach," write Sirs. W. C. Gill, of Weldon,
Shelby Co., Ala., "head was to diziy wheu I
would raiae up in bed would fall right back.
Could eat but very little, iu fact scarcely any
thing, there seemed to be a heavy weight iu my
stomach so I could not rest: I had to belch very
often and would vomit up nearly everything I
ate. I was iu a bad condition. X took lour bot
tles of Dr. llerce's Golden Medical Discovery
and five of his Favorite Prescription 1 and am
now well and hearty. I feel like a new woman
and give Dr. Pierce's medicines credit for tt all.
I had taken medicine from physicians without
any benefit as I could see."
