m T THIS season of the year hardly a train leaves any of the railroad sta- tions of a groat city but what it bears half a dozen enthusiastic sportsmen in search of the thrills to be found only in the woods of the far north and northwest. Thousands of dollars are spent for the purpose of securing a chance to ■boot an antleerd buck as he roams over his na- tive heath. Preparations for these trips are made long in advance. As an old friend said one time about fox hunting, "Half the fun in the sport is getting ready, hacking to the meet and the long ride home with plenty of good tobacco." So are the days spent on the trail, getting into the big game country, nearly always from 90 to 200 miles from the end of the railroad. didn't cross the divide be- fore the snow came, we never would.

BOLIVIA S A RESULT of having lost its Pacific seaboard province of Antofagasta, follow- ing the war with Chile in 1879, Bolivia found itself shut off from the sea and de- pendent upon its neighbors for an outlet to the great world. Great as was the blow to national pride, for the Bolivians felt the loss of Antofagasta more keenly than even the French that of the Rhine provinces, and serious as was the loss to the national treasury of the revenues derived from the rich nitrate fields of the lost province, yet the blow was perhaps less heavy than the Bolivians themselves then thought. It changed entirely the country's eco- nomic outview and pushed it forward into lines of de- velopment which in all probability would otherwise have been delayed for man...

We can readily Imagine that It will be a great shock to most people to learn that the chicken statistics In previous censuses are not absolutely reliable. The unpleasant discovery has been made that the enumeration of 1890 showed the exlstenc; of a greater number of chickens In this country than In 1900. This Is conclu- sive evidence of .jross errors In fig- ures somewhere, says the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. Chicken fanciers lay the fault to the careless- ness of census officials, while the ex- perts In Washington say that poultry owners are prone to exaggeration when the census man calls on them, and that the man who owns 50 chick- ens will almost Invariably claim that | he has 100. This, however, does not explain the discrepancy between the totals for the two dates mentioned—if the poultry men are consistent In their prevarications from one decade to an- ...
