"The name. tha-t follows his own is that of his sonv though the latter h;s been dead for three J'ears. "It is a case ful! of sadness.

Something for sportsmen to consider-. seriously, if. they intend to get one of. the new 30-calibcr army rifles, is the great pej ctration of the bullets. Ono of the bullets would kill a man through, a four-foot spruce tree, or a cow a mite and more away. No ordinary tree con. be depended on to stop one of these bullets, and it might easily travel half * mile through dense woods and hita man., far out of sight with deadly effect. Field and Stream says that the next legislatures of our great game states should pass a law prohibiting the use of *i jacketed bullet, because of the dan- . ger to human beings. .Another argument it offers in favor of such a law wiU have great influence on lh<i men who do not wish to wound without killing tho g-ame.
