Beginning on Monday the season will
be open for shooting rabbits and quail
in this State. Ten days later the deer
season opens. There are more than
0,000 licensed hunters in this county
and more than 300,000 in the State.

not to enter upon them and thel-e are
few eases where the game-seekers have
been granted permits to hunt. Gunners
who have had their dogs in training

plentiful although the season is a little
warm for such game.
Two clerks in the County Treasury

o'clock this morning and from that
time until 11.35 o'clock, neither had
had a minute's rest. More than four
hundred licenses were issued to-day,
bringing the total issued this season in
Dauphin county, up to 6.4 03. That
number is within 800 of the number
issued during the 1913 hunting season
; ending December 31, last. Treasurer
Bailey decided to keep the otlice open
| this afternoon and this evening to re
ceive applications for licenses.
The demands for licenses came so
rapidly this morning that the clerks
did not have time to place the receipts
in the cash drawer. As each license
was issued the dollar bill was swept to
the side of the wjmlow and by noon the
loose greenbacks were piled nine inches

that the German commanders of the
