The shots and sdells of the World
war are even now damaging the game
bints of America. Indirectly hut none
the less vitally. Lee s. Crandall, cura
tor of birds of the New York Zoolog
ical park, in a report to the American
Game Protective association warns
that unless the feu fortunate posses
sors of aviary pheasants cherish and
increase thVm during the com lag
breeding season nil species are In
danger of hemming virtually extinct.
The Industry of collecting and distrib
uting wild birds and animals hag been
badly demoralized by the war and
American breeders run no longer de
pend upon European Importations for
supply, he explained. The seed stock
of many kinds of gam birds and wa
terfowl has become dangerously re
duced and even if It Is possible to nb
tiiln fresh stock-, the newly-Imported,
wild-caught birds often breed with
great reluctance and years must pass
before a prolific breedfng strain can
be developed from them.

Wiry We Say Hello
Bong, long ago wolves were numer
ous in all parts of the world, espec- :
tally in Bngland. Wolf-hunting was j
a favorite sport with the gentry, and l
to kill wolves was regarded as saned
duty of all Englishmen. French '
wolf hunters' cry was 'An Boup!' Au
1 I.oup' (to the wolf). These words I
heard at a distance sounded like a
loo', but the English, who always put
'h' on wherever they possibly can,
put It on the words 'a loo', and when
wolf hunting shouted 'ha loo.' This
form we use when we call hello.

Where did you get that cold?
Winter days are here and with
them comes the usual crop of coldl
sniffling, coughing, and meeting, II
you wish to be convinced of this Just
make a visit to any of the churches,
schools, theatres moving picture
shows, or any public assembly, and
notice how many people are affected
with colds. This is not the fault
ol the season however. Contrary to
I the popular idea, colds are not caught
from draughtB, cold air, open win-
dows.or wet feet. Cold air does not
cause a cold so long as vou are pro
tected with warm clothing und are
breathing fresh air. It is a well
known fact that Arctic explorers nev
er have colds until they got bak to
civilisation. The engineers and rire-
meO on the railroads are not the oner
who catch fold, hut the pa sen-"
In the train Colds are a gem
de ease. Colds are therefore pre
veniable, and are not at all nessasarj
either li summer or winter.
The air passages of a noriial In
dividual are generally flooded with
germs of all kinds, but these do not
thrive unless thev are planted on
favorable soil. The mucous mem
branes of the respiratory tracts are
provided with natural defences In
Which gariUI are thrown off end des

heated apartments and public build
ings is especially harmful, The
convected heat from steam healed
apartments and public buildings is
found to be more trying on the muc
ous membranes than the radiated
heat from open fireplaces.
How then can we avoid taking
cold? A correct Idea of the cause of
colds on the part or the laity Is nec
essary In order to avoid them. Merer
allow your rooms or apartments to
become over-heated and stuffy. Avoid
all crowded, congested, stuffy, and
over heated places. Children with
colds should not be allowed to go to
school. Strict observance of the rules
of personal hygiene will generally
prevent the catching of colds. Per
sons with Infected tonsils or adenoids
should have them removed, as they
