objection is found to tho salo of

within tho state. Tho reports of
Kalbfus and of tho commission itself
went to Tenor together.
Tho game commission has Just
completed arraignment to bring a
number of elk into tho state from
the west, and legislation for tho pro
tection of these animals will be
sought, and an effort will alBO be
made to put tho turtle dove on tho
list of protected birds because of its
value as destroyer of tho seeds of
weeds and because It has been al
most exterminated in Pennsylvania.
Is is also Intimated In the Kalbfus
report that tho game commission
would like to have funds appropri
ated for tho maintenance of game
preserves and for the purchase of
other preserves, and that a sufllcient
appropriation be made to enauio tne
commission to employ the officers
tho law authorizes it to put to work.
The recommendation that no law
passed in any manner aiding or per
mitting the killing of game or wild
birds other than is permitted at this
time, is taken as an indlcatlpn that
the commission adheres to its oppos

law prohibiting the killing of does

Wns Skating on Reservoir Near Tyler
Hill and Ice Gave Way Res
cued by Pole.
On Wednesday of last week, Os
car, the twelve-year-old son of Mr.
and Mrs. Allen Smittiers, of this
place, had a very narrow escape
from drowning wnue skating on tno
Ice. During the noon hour the pu
pils from tho district school at Tyler
Hill were skating on the Ice at the
reservoir near by when the lco which
was very weak, gave way, letting
the boy Into the Icy water. Somo of
tho boys who wero standing near and
saw tho boy break through the lco,
started for the school house a dis
tance of about ono mile, to get as
sistance from the teacher, while two
of tho other boys, Harry Smith and
Cecil Abraham thought of how they
could get their playmate out of the
water. So by means of a long polo
which was reached to tho boy in tho
water, who it is said had already
sank twice, he was able to grasp It
and was pulled safely to solid Ice
and taken immediately after
wards to shore. Much credit should
