Sunday last, being nearest the 31st of October, was celebrated as Reforma tion Sunday in many Protestant churches, particularly the Evangelical Lutheran, as the 301st anniversary of the beginning of the great Reformation of the Christian church in the sixteenth century. On October 31st, 1617, Luther, the monk of Wittenberg, nailed up his celebrated ninety-five theses as a pro test against the abuses in the church of his time, and thus began that great movement which has more profoundly moved the world than any other since the establishment of Christianity.

Plenty of game is predicted for the next two years as a result of the forest fires which have raged in more than a dozen of the mid-state counties, by Dr. J. C. Kalbfus, Secretary to the State Game Commission, who has visited the the burned areas. He says that the damage done to the forests is great, but that small game did not suffer much as the animals and birds were sufficiently developed to get out of the way. The fire was so great that it destroyed the large trees, and the areas burned over will be covered with young grass and new shoots next year, so that there will be fine grazing grounds for the animals the coming summer.
