recently paid a fine here, charged with

Pheasant Eggs for Okla. Farmers.
Chlckasha.—So great has teen the
demand for pheasant eggs that J. S.
Askew, the state game warden, has
placed a Eecond order for five thou-
of sand of thorn. These eggs are sent
free to any person on application to
the state game warden. Several Grady
county farmers have applied for eggs.
In a letter to Mr. Askew, acknowl-
edging the receipt of his second or-
der, the American Game Association,
"Yours of the 25th received, in which
you Increase your order ten thousand
eggs more, thus making it the largest
order for pheasant eggs ever placed In
America. We are pirated to accept
your order and it will be delivered in
May and June.
"June is an excellent month for
rearing birds on account of the insect
life. With us July and August are
good months, as at that time the
ground and the grasses are so filled
with Insect life that the birds do as
well or better, than In any other por-
tion of the season.
"We commenced shipping our evgs
Thursday, the 28th, so they will com-
mence to arrive with you about the
first of May. The eggs we ship one
day are product of the day oefoie in
nearly all cases; seldom the eggs are
over two days old when shipped, near-
ly always only one day old.

General Wood is tbe ranking ma-
jor general of the army, and MaJ.Oen
Ainsworth Is next in number. There
is only eight months difference in
their rank, though ten years differ-

worth entered the army ten years be-
fore Wood, but Wood was promoted
to be major general eight months be-
fore Ainsworth reached the rank. Tha
two doctor generals have been per-
sonal friends for years
The careers, capabilities and char-
acteristics of the two men—both of
whom entered the army as civilians
—are so nearly parallel that the close
relation Into which they will be
1 thrown has excited great Interest In
army circles In Washington.

in 1874. He Immediately entered the

1S92 he was made colonel and chief

$6,922; In 1906, $4,494; in 1905, $3,862;
In 1904, $3,589; in 1903. $3,240. and In
1902, $2,412—the commerce In leeches
being thus of a growing character.
The total number of leeches Im-
ported in the United States In the
decade ending with 1908,1s about $40,-
000. Leeches are Imported free of
duty. Snails were at one time enu-
merated as an article of Importation,

snails Imported to the extent of about
$5,000, hut the snail trade so dwin-
