Hunte00 To Report Game Taken 465 Out of Some 650 Hunters Over- look Important Ruling of Game Commissioners. Duck hunting promises to be ex- ceptionally good next fail for Big Stone sportsmen, according to the in- formation received on Tuesday from State Game and Fish Commissioner Carlos Avery. That is, it does if those who up to this time, have failed to make a report on their license, do not comply with the law. If they do ,ot comply with the law on this point then all of the ducks landing in Big Stone Count:( waters will be left to he mercy of not more than 200 hunt- In the report kept by the state de- partment, 465 names of Big Stone County hunters out of seine 650 who received small grime licenses have failed to repo the number of game killed on their license. To give the delinquents an oppor- tunity to "square themselves," Carlos Avery has issued instructions that if the parties who have f$iled to report under their license will do so at once they may be able to hunt next fall. Reports must be made on the li- cense granted, if the parties have them. If liceve has been lost then application should be made to O. S. Briggs, state gme warden, Orton- ville, Minnesota, for the necessary blanks. "Quick action by the hunter on this point s imperative if they wish the privileg of lmug next fall," Mr. Briggs stated. Those ef this county who failed to I make a return on big game iiconsesj were: Ingval Kvatum, John G. Kirkey, I Nels F. Fasborg, Herman Leisdon, and Andrew E. Davison, Beardsley; E. L. Zehringer, Earl' E. Oswood, Roy Geier and R. U. Herzog of Ortonville; Wil- liam Fetterley, Clinton. McDowells Move to Graceville. Mr. and Mr Herbert McDowell are packing their household furniture aug are leaving today for Graceville where they will make their future home. The many rieds o the MaeDowell family will regret their departure and hope, that at an early date they will tmm here to make their perma- nenthome.

Lees- ard was one of the aduat as free as water, and money was of no value. It was "all free over here" at Foster Wednesday, and the kids as well as grownups found that theze was no need of rushing. Ln all, llO cases of pop, 37 cases of malt, 100 gallons of ice cream, 115 gallons of lemonade, 5 pounds of peanuts, 500 sticks of gum and 1,250 cigars were consumed. Features in the program were a square dance on the lawn, th music furnished by Harding's Melody "5" Supreme, OrtonvilIe's new orchestra, and a hard-fought game of ball, be- tween "Wheaton Shriners" and "The Rest of the World," umpired by Van Gordon of Browns Valley No Babe Ruth stunts were pulled by any of the players, and punk team work was shown on 'both sides. At the wind- up the score stood 12 to 12, with ac- cusations against the scorekeeper and many threats during the game on the life of the umpire. It is the belief of many on both sides that he was either blind or cross-eyed, and fear was felt for his life" from threaten- ing ruffians in the game and on the side-lines. Martin Schoen of this city had a narrow escape from death when a foul ball hit him on the nose. Umpire Gordon, as an alibi for his rotten decisions, was reported as say- ing that Bob Schoon was so tall, Earl Gold so short, and Vie Anderson of Wheatoa so large Of ., that he could not easily di" vhetBer the balls thrown were high, wide, low or handsome. . Hilmer Hanson of Wheaton, was caught in the act of finding a ladies' hand bag containing money," and forced to be honest about it, offers to return it to the rightful omer upon identification. At the close of the day's revelry, at which over 1,500 attended, the same officers were elected for the ensuing year, and picnic will be held again on the third Wednesday in June next year at "Foster on the Lake." The tie between the hall teams will be played off at that time, with a new umpire presiding. A large delegation from our neigh- boring village of Milbank, Big Stone City, and other South Dakota ports were on deck but the water polo game between the two states for the cham- pionship of the world was not re- peated this year. It seldom rains in South Dakota and it was reported that the Dakota players were afraid of the water. Sisseton was visited yesterday by William Jennings Bryan and a small attendance came from the reserva- tion on that account. More than 1,000 Expected to S. S. and K. L C. E.

Plans as first made called for he meeting of this l, raneh at the church at Odessa but owing  ,e large num. ber who have sgnified theiz inten- tion of attending it was deemed ad visable .to hold the meeting at the Camp Grounds where the number can be accommodated. To those planning oa attending, announcement is made that signs will be erected to direct tle travel.

Lohengrin, the bride, attended only by her little niece, Elizabeth Lloyd l nonton, descended the tong stair- way, and at an improvised altar, flanked by tall cathedral candles, in the library, was met by the groom. The Reverend Geo. E. Platt, rector of Christ Church, read the impressive ring service of the Episcopal church in the presence of fifty relatives and friends. The bride was most charmingly gownedin cream-colored Princess satin, v'iled with Spanish lace and carried a shower bouquet of Mrs. Ward coppery yellow roses and white sweet peas, tied with yellow and white tulle. Locust Plague Fear Cast to Wind hy Entomologist Believing that an insect found on a tree about two miles from this city, along the lake, was a 17 year locus which news articles say have infested the state of Illinois by attaching them- selves to trees, the party finding it sent it to A. G. Ruggles, Entomolo- gist of the state University for his opinion. The insect, which was shown to many farmers and people living in town, is apparently a new inhabitant of this section of the state, for no one had ever seen ofie like it.

Ed- ward Indrehus leads easily for the Democratic nomination for governor over Merle Birmingham, the "wet" candidate. In a three cornered contest for State Senator in the 48th district, the returns so far indicate a neck to neck race between Senator Cliff and Judge Steidi for highest number of votes, each candidate having close to 3,350 burrow of the wood boring insect Following "the ceremony, a buffet Then she gets her ovipositor in pos- luncheon was served in the difiing room, where yellow roses, maiden-hair fern and smilax were used as decora- tions.
