JUST received, car of flour and feed at Farmers' Exchange, north -of court house.-5 To the Editor: It has been a ques' Moh with We for many years how long will the fish and game of Iowa last unless something is done to replenish and protect them. Thirty years ago our lakes add streams were well stocked with fine fish and the whole state was considered otie of the best resorts for game in the whole country. Deer and elk roamed over the prairie. Thousands of geese and ducks were to be found in every stream, lake and slough. Pinated grouse were almost as plenty as blackbirds are today. As soon as the spring opened our woods swarmed with the passenger pigeons. Quails were around every farm, and the warm days in May brought us from the south countless numbers of plover, clocbirds, curlew and all the snipe family. If all that remain of the game and fish of lowu were gathered together in one county there would scarcly be more than were to be found in almost every •county in the state 30 years ago. Unless some work is done the year 1900 will find but little game left and our fish almost wholly destroyed. Dynamite and the fisherman's nets will take what few fish there t are left. The prairie chicken must go. There is no help for them. They cannot thrive iu a country where the land is cultivated as it is in Iowa. We have, no waste land where they can make their nests. I have no doubt but that seven-eights of their nests are destroyed every spring. In a few years a prairie chicken will be a rare thing in Iowa. If our state had a law protecting the Mongolian or Chinese pheasant, the ringnecks and the English pheasant for five or ten years they would take the Maine, ttith 83,040 square mites, appropriates $16,600. MaSsaCfeuSettS, area 8.315 square miles, appropriates $16,700. New Hampshire, area 6,805 square miles, spends $10,000 oh hatch* eries to stock Inland waters. con i Hecticutj area 4,990 square miles, appropriates $9,000 for the propagation of fish, ahd gives hefr cduhties pdWef td appoint and pay game Wardens. New York, area 49<ltO square miles, gives to her commission of fisheries $66,050, of which $44,000 is for the maintenance of the several hatcheries. Minnesota, our sister statej with an area of 83,865 square tnUes, appro* priates $16,000 yearly. Pennsylvania, area 45,212 square miles, appropriated in 1893 $40,000. The appropriation of the state of Iowa for the fish com* mission Is about $2,000 a year. It Will be seen by this that Iowa is fat? behind the other states in the stocking of her waters. From a list compiled by Mr. A. G. Fletcher I find the value of fishery products of the state of Massa* chusetts to be $7,531,194. Maryland 80,400,750 New York 5,041,250 Virginia 3,041,282 New Jersey 3,025,890 California 3,044,731 Maine 2,225,800 Connecticut 1,871,413 Washington 934,010 Michigan °^'9°5 Oregon 80B.400 Ohio 618,083 Pennsylvania 405,153 Wisconsin 292'SS? Delaware 250,805 South Carolina ?22'9S? Georgia 1S3, 0 03 So little is done in Iowa for the fish and game that the state ia not taken Into consideration In the list. I have talked with many of our best men in every part of the state and I never have found one that was not interested In the raising of fish. All ask the question, "Why is not more donei"' I do not believe in too much law In regard to flah. Protection from the use of dynamite, nets, and spears is all that Is needed. Stock the waters and let the people catch all the fish they want with hook and lino. JOHN G. SMITH. Money. I have unlimited money to loan on long or short time. B. W. HAGGARD.

Fred Miller of Irving, 111., writes that he had a severe kidney trouble for many years with severe pains in his back, and also that his bladder was affected. He tried many so-called kidney cures, but without any good result, About a year ago he began the use of Electric Bitters and found relief at once. Electric Bitters is especially adapted to the cure of all kidney and liver troubles, and often gives almost instant relief. One trial will prove our statement, Price only 50ofor large bottle at Dr. Sheetz' drug store, ^ ' 6 KNIGHTS OF THE MACCABEES. The State Commander writes us from Lincoln, Neb., as follows: "After trying other medicines for what seemed to be a very obstinate cough in our two children we tried Dr. King's New Discovery and at the end of two days the cough entirely left them. We will not be without it hereafter, as our experience proves that it cures where all other remedies fail. 11 —Signed F. W.

Both the Chinese and English pheasants are able to protect themselves much better than any of our game birds. In the state of Oregon where they were protected for five years they have increased to such an extent that It is estimated that there are millions of them in that state at the present time. If we lose our game it Is a difficult matter to replenish it, but we can have plenty of fish and with very little trouble. With a very little expense every lake and stream could be stocked with fine fish, and it seems to me that It would be a paying investment for theneopleof our state. We pay out more than one half million of dollars eyery year for fish. Why not raise those fish? We could have better fish than we import. Many a farmer can have a fish pond at a very slight _ expense, where more fish can be raised than five families could possibly use. The farmers would have the ponds if they could get the fish to stock them. Our state ought to have 2,000,000 of fish ready to put into our lakes, ponds, and streams the coming season. I would not use many kinds of fish to stock our waters. Pickerel, pike, large and small mouthed bass, cat fish, and carp are about all the fish that do well in Iowa waters. Of course there are some places where fine trout ponds could be made. I know .of a place in this county where there is a flowing well, and it is so situated that three fine ponds could be made, and all have E uro cold water flowing through them, uch ponds would do for trout, but trout would not do well in many of the Iowa waters. It is somewhat strange that the people of Iowa should take so little interest in their fish and game, owa has always been noted for being at the front in almost everything. In 893 the fish commissioners of New York succeeded in distributing over 80,000,000 of the best varieties of fishes n the waters of that state. Michigan, Ohio, Massachusetts and many of the other states were not far behind New York In stocking their waters, The jeople of those states have seen large •eturns from the fish commissioners' work. Thirty years ago there were but few old people in the state of Iowa. Now we have many old people. They are not able to work and they want something to do, They want some amusement. How nice it would be if they could take their hooks and line and go to some lake or stream and catch some Eisb. I believe that there are more people who enjoy fishing than any Dther amusement. Almost everyone likes to catch fish and a good fresh fish is one .of the best articles of food that we have. The display of fishes in the World's Fair in Chicago was one of the greatest attractions of the fair. Twenty years ago few people knew how easy it was to raise fish. Now almost every one has some idea of it. Stock the clear streams where there are sandy or rocky banks with bass, pike and pickerel. The slow running streams, with oat fish, pike and pickerel, and the mud ponds with carp, Many people call them German carp, but they are American carp, and have always been found in certain American waters. The state should have a "fish car," Then it would be an easy matter to distribute the fish to any part of the state. Our railroads are always public spirited about such work and would haul the oar over their roads free pf expense. They would stop the car at any of the lakes and streams where they cross, and that makes it very easy work to distribute the fish. The fish commissioner pf the state of Wisconsin saw the necessity of having a fish oar, and in the year 1893 the state legislature made an appropriation pf $6,000 lor that purpose, Wisconsin has EIQW a splendid car and they are able to distribute tbeiv fish ia the lakes, pondg an4 rivers of the state with but very little trouble.
