SALEM, S. D., S--:. ;:>.—.While traveling with W. J. Bryan from Slpiix Palls to Mitchell, former Senator R. F Pntttgrew today publicly nnnouncerl that four years ago he had been approached by the Republican national jommlttee. through a former United Star-»a senator, with an offer of $10,i)0 if he wquld deliver ten speeches ,t such places as the committee would llctnti- In support of the candidacy of Thomas Watson of Georgia, the peo- Ae's party candidate for President. Mr. Pettlgrew said that, with a view if ascertaining what has behind Uie Mis- Ethel Brandon, who monies here in the roll of the mayor's mother in "The Man of the Hour" at the HaUrrsfield Opera House tonight, has had a career as interesting, at least, as that of any actress of grande-dame characters now In activity in the English-speaking theater. The so- palled palmy days of the stage In this country endured In the far west and ''specially In San Francisco and the lareor coast towns, long after they hud become only a tradition In the middle west and east—a condition tin,, to the difficulties of trans- he wrote to his senator friend | continental travel and the long dls , mri asked him If the amount eoul.l not increased to $20.000. but the reply tan< .,, bf ., AVee cltle cap able of sup,„„.,.;,,,, lliKn .

TICKSlSllLLING THE DIMS Next Thursday duck season opens. Hunters already are arriving In anxious anticipation of good shooting. Reports from the south side sloughs are encouraging and a better season than last is expected by many enthusiasts. Yesterday was a good day for sportsmen. George Price and Phllo Jewett went after doves and bad good success, as did Ike Miller and Frank Munzer and other members of the Slcarte Club who shot on .the at its best that Miss Brandon was one at its conspluous ornaments and fhe played there with actors of th" i alibre of John McCullough, Lawrence Barrett, James A. Herne and \V. K Sheridan—the last-named actor oiu. whom Callfornlans hold In special affection. It U a striking Illustration of the unexpectedness of the theatrical rallim; that Miss Brandon should return to the west under the manage- men' of William A. Brady and Jos epli R. Grlsmer. Both were young actors in San Francisco when she was at the height of her great popularity there as a leading woman. Her husband, L. R. Stockwell, was In those days the most popular actor of comic and strongly-marked characters In the theater of the west; and a playhouse named for him stood for years in San Francisco. In the course of time, both Mr. Brady and Mr. Grismer gave up acting for management. Mr. Brady is the husband of Miss Grace George, who last season made her first visit to the west, , *,«« nuv „.„„ „„ ,"-,*, a ? *i as glven *„"""}?« welc °me by 63^^Tffw^;^™->s^f fairly good shooting and there are , *« a ». extremely popular leading said to be some ducks along the Paa- iwoman m San Francisco for some ama slough. The real sport, though, will could with the beginning of quail season. The birds are big and fat and but few reports of unlawful shooting have been registered. Along the county roads south of town shooting will be good and especially so along the Sunset road. Deer hunting Is on Its last legs and what few hunters are still out have not been having much success.

FRESNO, Sept. 29.—That ticks are killing off the ducks on Tulare Lake and not poison, as was at first supposed, Is the opinion of several prospective hunters who were down In that section yesterday looking over imsebaif"InBakersfleld' years, and afterward co-star with Mr. Orlsmer under Mr. Brady's management. ANOlIflRY 10 REVIVE BASEBALL The taste of oasenall the fans had Sunday when the Bloomer Girls made their appearance at Recreation Park seems to have whetted everyone's appetite for the national game, and since the contest many people have been heard to express wonder that no effort was made to again start the prospects Thursday. According to a Nevada man who was around Firebaugh, the ducks are being killed off by ticks, such as infested the ducks on certain lakes in Nevada two years ago. These ticks are just like the wood ticks on cattle and thrive in marshy lands.

Orlando Barton Is In Visalla from his home In the Devil's Den country, near Tulare lake. Mr. Barton has a new theory as to what has caused the death of many thousand ducks on the lake.
