GAME PRESERVES. Protective MciiHures Adopted By American Sportsmen. Native frame, once abundant, has become scarcer with every succeeding generation. Accounts published in the days of the pilgrim fathers, read more Hke fables than the sober deeds of God- fearing' men. In 1634 deer were plentiful around Massachusetts bay, forming- the staple food of the settlers, while thirty miles to the north of where the state house now stands existed great herds of moose. Bears were terribly destructive to the flocks of the pioneers, and -wolves roamed the woods in larg-e bands. Of small g-ame, as may be imagined, there was no lack. Pinnated grouse, now extinct in the east, except on Martha's Vineyard, swarmed on the barrens, wild pigeons hid the sun during- their migrations, and water fowl floated in assiired security on every stream and pond of the future common•wealth. In this year of grace 1S91 all that remains of those-feathered hosts and countless herds of big- g-ame are a few fugitive deer on the capes and a sprinkling of quail and partridg-e scattered through the wilder portions of the state. When even robins are slaughtered, -what chance is there for the deer, the quail and the ruffled grouse, unless, indeed, preserves be formed after the models of those existing- throughout Europe, which serve as sanctuaries for the persecuted birds and beasts? Sportsmen seem to be realizing- this, and the number of game protection clubs is rapidly spreading. Nor are they confined to the east—some of the largest exist in California, while in the Mississippi valley and on the great lakes thousands of acres are now controlled by clubs, composed of the better class of citizens of those sections respectively; not necessarily enormously wealthy men, for in a properly organized association the dues may be kept very low, but rather of men who feel no desire to scramble with the pot nnnter and the market snaver for the few remaining birds. Free game for all and promiscuous shooting is but an Utopian dream, except in very sparsely settled lands. There is nothing, however, to prevent game, if properly preserved, being available within a short distance of the large cities, where those able to pay -the trifling dues and entrance fee necessary under judicious management could enjoy a few hours' health giving sport without serious interruption of their business. Among the better known preserves already established are the Blooming Grove in Pennsylvania, the Megantic in northern Maine and Quebec, and Mr. Kerre Lorillard's venture at Tuxedo park, New Jersey. Taere are hundreds of others, but among them all none is attracting more attention than the recently purchased preserve of Mr. Austin Corbin, in New Hampshire. This last gentleman now has control of 22,000 acres, the fencing of which is reported to have cost him the enormous sum of 574,000, while the total probable cost of the venture is already 8400,000, and the end is not yet Of course the doings of a millionaire are not an example which men of ordinary means may attempt to imitate. Happily such a heavy outlay is by no means necessary. On the New Hampshire preserve buffalo, moose, elk, deer, caribou, antelope and wild boars have teen turned down, many of which are notoriously wandering animals. If a preserve is to be a success, though containing but a moderate acreage and •without being hedged iilby a deer-proof fence, and if also a stock of game birds is required animals of a stay-at-home disposition and non-migratory birds must be selected. Granting this, there are but few American animals and birds fitted to withstand the New England climate which are suitable to the game preserve's needs. Moose and deer would succeed on any large preserve, and ruffled grouse and quail form a valuable foundation for a sporting estate, but if more variety is desired Europe must be drawn on. As a rule the game birds and animals of the old world are more stationary than those on this continent, and require far less territory over which to roam than do their western congeners. Wild boar, fallow deer and roe deer .should all succeed in New England, as they inhabit countries having much the same climate, while the giant capercalie, the imposing black cock and the gorgeous pheasant are seemingly perfectly adapted to the northeastern portion of • the United States. Many of these have already been imported and their success is no longer (doubtful. Pheasants are reared annually at Tuxedo park and Jekyl island, and Mr. Corbin will have at least 5,000 ready for the gun by next October, Black game have been introduced into Newfoundland, and will eventually stock that island. Wild boar, fallow deer and roe are as yet untried in New England, with the exception of a few of the first named on the Corbin preserve. The appearance of the fallow deer harmonizes most thoroughly with the oak woods and green glades of European scenery. The wild grace and majestic pose of the red deer are lack- Ing, it is true, but a fallow buck is still a most beautiful beast, with its sleek coat and palmated antlers. The enormous barren wastes necessary for a red- deer "forest" are not congenial to the fallow deer, which is tolerant of man and can thrive in the midst of a fairly dense civilization. An Emblem ot the Soul. The Egyptian and the Greek emblem for the soul was the butterfly, which is at first only a caterpillar, but at length bursting its bonds, comes out with new life and in most beautiful attire, thus affording a representation of the spirit of man and of the immortality to which he aspires. It is worth mentioning by the way that within the homely caterpillar can be found, by careful dissection, the future butterfly, neatly folded up and complete in all his parts, like the rose in its unexpanded bud or the plant within tho seed. In the forests of Guiana some people make butterfly catching their business, gathering them in paper boxes and exporting them to collectors in Europe. The Bushmen of Africa eat the caterpillars of butterflies. Insects of this kind, soon after they are transformed into butterflies, commonly discharge drops of a red fluid and-such performances by great flocks of them: have many times in history given rise to tales of bloody rains, which greatly excited the fears of the superstitious.— Washington Star. A Mode! School. A public school which has its own police is one of the novelties of New York. Such is the famous grammar school in West 54th street. Boys are regularly detailed not only to keep order within the building at dismissal time, but to insure good order and quick dispersing on the street. These youthful policemen seldom have to take the name of laggards or noisy fellows, and when they do no punishment follows. The unruly boys are sent before Mr. Elgas, the principal, and he appeals to their pride in the record of the school. This great body of young New Yorkers is managed through pleasure instead of pain, by rewards in place of reprimands. Good boys and studious ones have such privileges there that all the rest strive for the honors.—N. Y. Sun. —"Mrs. FreshJeigh— "Now, Johnny, you really must take better care of your clothes. I hope you always hang them up." Johnny Freshleigh— "Well, I—I did—did—h— ang up my dress suit last t—t—term, but I was afraid to t—t—tell you about it."—Harvard Lampoon. —Proper Indignation.—Mrs. de Tone (engaging servant)—"I shall expect you to wear a cap and apron." Miss Flaherty (with sarcasm)—"A cap, is it? Perhaps you would loike me to wear a pipe wid it, too. Sure yez would have me look loike me own grandmother."— Puck. —Jimpson (to new grocer)—"I fear you will have a hard time building up a trade here; there will be so much opposition." Grocer (hopefully)—"I appreciate the difficulty. It requires lots of grit and sand, but I've got both."— Harper's Bazar.

Human wretchedness touches bottom in sea sickness. Life is held a feather's weight by the unfortunate afflicted with it. Why endure its atrocious internal convulsions when Hostetter's Stomach Bitters relieves them instanter? Not only relieves, but prevents. It is not always on the "briny" that traveler's nausea is experienced. Railway journeying, riding with one's back to the horses or the locomotive sometimes produces it in super-sensitive stomachs. Hostetters Stomach Bitters is always the prompt remedy. The mischievous properties of brackish water, the evil influence of miasma, unwholesome or unaccustomed food, excessive fatigue, whether bodily or mental, the dyspeptic tendency bred by sedantary pursuits, the pernicious effects of exposure to extremes of temperature or dampness, all these are effectually counteracted by this genial preservative of health. Cures also rheumatism, kidney and bilious trouble. to!3 v^LE, April2G, 1S8G.
