Something over 1,400 hunters' II
censes have already been Issued from
the city clerk's office In Chicago, and
hunters are still making applications
at the rate of from 'j5 to 40 per day.
By November 10, the date of the open
•eason on qualls in Illinois, it Is be
lieved the number will exceed that of
last year, when 4,200 licenses were is
•ued in Chicago alone. It Is now law
ful in Illinois to hunt squirrels, wood
cock, doves, snipes, plovers, ducks and
Ceeae, and many persons who can gi't
away from business a day or two at a
time have already taken out their 11
censes, while those who do not expert
to huut anything but quails will not
procure their licenses for a couple of
months yet. It is said that the num-
ber of hunters applying for licenses
this year, up to the present time, Is
(ar in excess of what it was last year,
and that among the applicants there
are a great many who have never be-
fore taken out a license. This lit
known, says an authority, from tho
(act that many are Ignorant as to tha
cost of a resident license, and some
of them hesitate to answer promptly
certain questions tliat the license clerk
propounds, and which must be an-
•wered before the license blank can be
properly filled out. The license con-
tains the applicant's full name and
address, his height, weight, color of
hair and eyes, etc., and on the reverse
«ide Is a synopsis of tho open sea-
•oub on different kinds of game. The
color of the license this season Is red,
•o that It is easily distinguished from
the ones issued In 1904. A license Is
not transferable and can be used only
by the man to whom it Is issued.
There is growing feeling against
hyphenated Americans. The reported
rebuke of the kaiser recently has at-
tracted wide attention and approval
from American papers. The Denver
Republican, for example, says: "it is
reported that an inhabitant of the
United States desiring an audience
with Kaiser Wilhelm, described him
•elf as a German-American, Imagining
that such a designation would be pleas-
ing to his majesty, it had the con-
trary effect, however, for the kaiser
replied: 'Ills imperial majesty, the
tmperor, recognizes and appreciates
highly a German or an American. Ac-
cording to the imperial view, a Ger-
man-American does not exist.' Tho
kaiser administered a Just rebuke.
There has been altogether too much of
this attempt to play two parts. We
want no German Americans, Swedish-
Americans, Irish-Americans, or other
hyphenated characters. We want just
plain Americans. Of course, there is
«o reason why the immigrant should
not retain a feeling of love for the
home of his birth. That Is natural
•nd proper. , But one may not serve
two masters. And when ono has be-
come an American citizen his first
thought must be America. And there
are times when his last thought must
be America, too, no matter how dis-
tasteful that thought may be. Did
world politics must not be allowed to
tnterfere with American policies. Our
•talesmen should not be obliged to ap
peal to prejudices that wero born in
ether days and under other skies."
One of the most popular fallacies ot
our day is that we are martyrs to the
•trenuous life. Life, we tell ourselvi s,
la lived at such a tremendous pace in
these twentieth century days that wo
•re all breaking down under the
•train. Especially here in America we
•re so astonishingly efficient, and so
wonderfully industrious, we are ac-
complishing such mighty results, that
our constitutions are going to the dem-
nition bow-wows. it is all very b: J
and very noble, remarks the Chlcag >

"Come iu, you young heathen," said
the groceryman, as the liad Boy looked
through the front door. "It's a foggy
"Foggy?*' said the Had Boy, as he
seated himself. "Say, old man, you
just ought to see a London fog. It'
a court sentenced me to live In that
town, 1 would appeal the case, and
ask ;he judge to temper his sentence
with mercy, and hang me. The fog
there is so thick you have to feel
around like a blind goddess, and when
you show up through the fog you
look about 18 fret, high, and you are
so wet you want to be run through a
clothes wringer every littJe while. For
two days we never left our hotel, but
looked out of the windows waiting for
the fog to go by, and watching the
people swim through it. without turn-
ing a hair. Dad was for going right
to the lord mayor and lodging a coin-
is I: I
tion, and we went and ate all there
was. and when the time was up the
detective disappeared and dad had to
pay for the luncheon, but he kicked all
the way to I^ondon, and the guard
would not listen to his complaints, but
told him if he tried to hold up tae
train he would be thrown out the T.in-
dow and run over by the train. We
had the compartment to ourselves the
rest of the way to Ixmdon, except
about an hour, when the guard shoved
in a farmer who smelled like cows,
and dad tried to get in a quarrel with
him. about Knglish roast beef coming
from America, but the man didn't have
hi arguing clothes on, so dad began
id fault with me, and the man
ton. dad to let up on the kid or he
would punch 'is bloody 'ed off. That
settled It, when the man dropped his
"h." dad thought ho was one of the
nobility, and he got quite chummy
with the Englishman, and then we <?ot
to London, and dad had a quarrel
about his baggage, and after threaten-
ing to have a lot of fights he got his
trunk on the roof of a cab, and in
about an hour we got to the hotel, and
then the fog began an engagement, it
the fog here ever froze stitY, the town
would look like a piece of ice with
fish frozen in. Gee, but I would like
to have it freeze in front of our hotel,
so I could take an ax and go out and
chop a frozen girl out, and thaw her
till sfye came to.
"Say, old man, if anybody ever wants
to treat you to a trip to Europe, don't
come here, but go to some place where
they don't think they can speak Eng-
glish. You can understand a Nitalian
or a Frenchman, or a Dutchman, who
can't speak English, and knows he
can't, better than you can an English-
man who thinks he can speak Eng-
lish, and can't, 'don't you know.'
Everything is 'don't you know.' If
a servant gives you an evening paper
lie says: ' 'Ere's your paiper, don't
you know,' and if a man should -I
don't say they would, but if a man
should give you a civil answer, when
>*)U asked him the name of a street,
he would look at you as though you
were a cannibal, and say: 'Regent
street, don't you know,' and then he
would act as though you had broken
him of his rest. Dad asked more than
a dozen men where Bill Astor lived,
and of all the population of London I
don't believe anybody knows, except
one newsboy. We rode half a day on
top of a bus, through streets so crowd-
ed that the horses had to creep, and
dad hung 011 for fear the bus would
be tipped over, and finally we got out
into the suburbs, where the rich peo-
ple live, and dad said we were right
on the trail of King Edward, and we
got off and loitered around, and dad
saw a beautiful place, with a big iron
fence, and a gate as big as a railroad
tom step so hard my hair raised right
up stiff, like a porcupine. Then I
listened to dad and Astor talk about
America, and I never saw a man who
seemed to be so ashamed that he was
a brevet Englishman, as he did. He
said he had so much money that it
made his head ache to hear the inter-
est accumulate, nights, when ho
couldn't sleep, and yet he had no more
enjoyment than Dreyfus did on Devil's
island. He had automobiles that would
fill our exposition building, horses and
carriages by the score, but he never
enjoyed a ride about London, because
only one person in ten thousand knew
him. and those who did looked upon
him with pity and contempt because
he had renounced his country to get
solid with the English aristocracy, and
nobody would speak to him unless
they wanted to borrow money, and if
they did borrow money from him he
was afraid they would pay it baek, and
make him trouble counting It. He
told dad he wanted to get back Into

be cleared off. so an American citizen
could go about town and blow in his
money, but I told him he could be ar-

"When the door closed dad told the
guard lie would walk on his neck when
the door opened, and that he was not
an entry In a dog show, and he want
ed a kennel all to blni elf, and ask.d
for dog biscuit. Ciee. but that guard
was mad, and he gave dad a look that
started the train going. I whispered
to dad to get out his revolver, because
the other passengers looked like hold-
up men, and he took his revolver out
of his satchel and put it in his pistol
pocket, and looked fierce, and the
woman began to act faint, while th?
passengers seemed to be preparing t >
jump on dad if he g it violent. When
the train stopped at the first station

old gentleman In there was from

sengers to reach the train, and when
got ready to get 011 we found those
English cars that open on the sides,
and they put you into a box stall with
some other live stool;, and lock you
In, and once in awhile a guard opens
the door to see if you are dead from
suffocation, or have lie. n murdered by
the other passengers. Dad kicked on
going in one of the kennels the first
thing, and said he wanted a parlor
car; but the guard took dad and gave
him a shove, and tossed rue In on top

boy a dollar. The boy fell over on
the sidewalk, dead, and dad started to
go away for fear he would be arrest-
ed for murder, but I kicked the boy.
and he got tip and yelled some kind
of murdered English, and more than
a dozen newsboys came on a gallop,
ar.d when the boy told them what had
happened they all wanted dad to ask

of dad, and two other passengers and j place, the boys yelled Andrew Carne-
a woman in tho compartment snick- ! Kie, and a flunkey flunked the gate
open and dad and I went in, and
walked up to the house. Astor was on
the veranda, smoking a Missouri corn
cob pipe, and drinking American beer
and seemed to be wishing he was
back home in America. Dad marched
right up to the veranda, like a veteran
soldi 'r, and Astor could see dad was
an American by the dandruff on his
coat collar, and Astor said:
" 'You are an American citizen and
you are welcome. Once I was like you.
and didn't care a continental for any-
body. but in a moment of passion I
renounced my country, swore al-
legiance to this blawsted country, and
America, and become a citizen again
of that grand old country of the star.s
and stripe.*, and asked dad how he
could do it, for he said he had rather
work in a slaughter house in America
than be a grand duke in England.
"1 never saw dad look so sorry for a
man as he did for Astor, and he told
him the only way was to sell out his
ranch in London and go back on an
emigrant ship, take out his first pa-
pers, vote the democratic ticket and
eventually become a citizen. Astor
was thinking over the proposition, and
dad had asked him if he was not
afraid of dynamiters, when he shud-
dered and said every day he expected
to be blown sky high, and finally he
smelled something burning and said
the smell reminded him of an Ameri-
can Fourth of July.
"You see, I had been sitting still on
the step of the veranda so long I got
nervous, for something exciting, so I
took a giant firecracker out of my
pocket and lit the long tail, and shoved
it under the porch and looked inno-
cent, and just then one of the flunkies
with the tightest pants you ever saw
came along and patted me on the head
and said I was a nice boy, and that
made me mad. and when he went to
sit down beside me 011 the step I took
my horse chestnut out of my pocket
and put it on the step just where he
sat down, and how it happened to
come out so I don't know, it must have
been Providence. You see just as the
flunkey flunked on the chestnut burr,
the firecracker went off, and the man
jumped up and said: * 'Ell's-fire, h'am
blowed.' and he had his hands on his
pants, and the air was full of smoke,
and dad got on his knees and said:
'Now I lay me,' and Mr. Astor faint-
ed all over a rocking chair and tipped
beer bottles on the veraoda and more
than 40 servants came, and I told dad
to come on. and we got outside the
gate, ahead of the police, and got a
cab and drove quicker than scat to
the hotel, and I ast dad what he
thought it was that went off, and he
said: 'You can search me,' but he
said he had got enough of trying to
reform escaped Americans, and we got
in the hotel and laid low, and the
newspapers told about a dynamite
outrage, and laid it to anarchists."
progress, or civilization, or whatever
capitalized divinity most strikes our
Imagination. But the cold facts are
these: Americans are not breaking
down generally, and those who are do
cot succumb to overwork, but to
overstrain from generally intemperate
living. Hard work seldom kills. C.ose
attention to business, keen interest iu
practical work, the full exercise of
one's faculties do not break men down.
Labor is the portion of man, and ho
4s healthier at work, and hard at
work, than he ever could be idling.
in the language of the street, it is
booze, not business, that kills, if tho
•lang term be exteuded to include not
only the intemperate use of liquor, but
Intemperate living of every kind.

Red Hill is the name of the estate,
which is on the Staunton river, 38
