There are 22 kinds of ducks nnd 10 species ol geese on the Canadian pi-alrie nesting grounds, and even canvaxbacks, redheads, nnd black heads, which migrate for the winter along the Atlantic const and are counted on by eastern hunters, are going to be scarce. * • • Closed Season rays Investigators who have traveled hundreds of miles have seen only a few ducks—and hundreds of marshes dried into alkaline mud flats. The Permanent Wild Life Protection Fund has a conclusive argument regarding the value of a long closed season, it points out that the fur seal has.-come back again through a prolonged ban. nftcr nearly complete extinction up to 1912; whlts-lailcd deer been restored In Vermont Pennsylvania, New York, and other nates; mountain sheep are back by the thousands in Colorado- e.k are saved from extinction In Wyoming, Montana, Idaho nnd Washington: wild turkey have been brought back In Texas; Atlantic coast ducks were saved by stopping 85' per cent of market hunting. On the other hand, the heath hen,. Labrador duck, passenger pigeon, Carolina parakeet, and great auk have vanished, chiefly bccusc of lack of protection. It isn't, illogical to suppose that within a couple of decades, ducks' without • the protection of man, will face complete extinction through greed. Northeast Arkansas T.pague W. L. Pet.
