Hunting Season Opens Nov. 15.  Quail Scarce But Rabbits Are Plentiful - Limit
to "Bag."  When the quail and rabbit hunting season opens on Saturday,
November 15th, nimrods not only of Pulaski county, but of the entire state
will take to the fields with gun and dog.  Reports from the county indicate
that while quail for some unaccountable reason are scarce, rabbits are
unusually  plentiful.  In many portions of the State quail are reported to
have increased in numbers because of the open winter last year and the fact
that the car took men from their hunting.  The season is already open on
ducks and jack snipe, having opened on September 16.  It will continue to
December 31, except is the case of the squirrel season, which opened July 1
and will close December 16.  The season is closed on doves.  While there is
no limit to the rabbit "bag," no more than twelve quail may be brought down
at one shooting.  Twenty-five is the bag limit on ducks and jack snipes. 
There is no bag limit on rabbits.

Woman With Long Record of Crimes Caught in Kansas.  (By Associated Press) 
Oklahoma City, July 15. - One of the most troublesome problems United States
marshals and sheriffs of the southwest have had to contend with in recent
years promises to be indefinitely postponed through the arrest recently at
Muskogee or Maybelle Fanning, or as she is perhaps better known "Peggy
Willard."  Police and Bertillion records give her aliases as follows:  Lena
Jackson, Dorothy West, Mrs. R.L. Green, Mrs. Bronson, and Mrs. Donnelly. 
Peggy's open boast has been that the law would never be able to keep her
behind iron bars, and thus far it hasn't.  Peggy incidentally, has confessed
to attempted murder, petty and grand larceny, diamond thieving, boot-legging
and white slavery.  James Findlay, of the United States bureau of
investigation, avers the young woman has developed her "profession" to the
highest degree.  Police of various Texas cities insist, in written
communications to Muskogee, that she paid a Texas lawyer $500 a week to
insure bond and freedom.  Peggy was first convicted of felony May 25, 1912. 
Police assert her "haul" of diamonds, her favorite plunder, amounted to
$100,000 on that occasion.  She was paroled August 6, 1912, but later was
apprehended on old indictments and sent back to the state prison.  April 19,
1913, she was sentenced to three years more, charged with assaulting with
attempt to kill Lee Simonds, a Texas sheriff.  She obtained her freedom by
promising to testify against an alleged accomplice in this case.  Her pardon
was granted but she refused to testify after being released.  She was tried
on the white slavery charge in Oklahoma City in May, 1917.  Shortly after
arriving at McAlester state penitentiary she made an appeal bond and obtained
freedom again.  She remained at liberty until a few weeks ago when she was
incarcerated at Muskogee on a charge of stealing automobile tires at Vinita. 
Through a jail employee's error she escaped again.  June 29, Inspector
Findlay received a message from Coffeyville, Kansas, informing him that
Maybelle Fanning and her six aliases had been arrested.  She is awaiting
trial on the auto tire charge at Muskogee.  Peggy Willard is about 28 years
old.  She is well educated and has been credited with being pretty enough to
be attractive.

Some men who think they are out for statesmen are in the wrong pew.

The hunting season opens and the Aninias club shows steady growth.

The Japanese are reported to be critical over the peace terms.  Is there
anybody that isn't?

D'Annucio's army has been reported as shooting up each other.  Who's worrying
over that?

One cause for the high price of everything is the fact that the world is
playing hookey.

A Maine jury has convicted a public speaker of blasphemy.  It is the first
conviction in modern times.

Real Americans who want a job can find one when they learn that ten million
Americans of the age of ten years and over cannot read or write.

Forty thousand people are reported starved to death in Petrograd.  We thought
they were fed up on Bolshevism.

It's getting worse.  A Pasadena preacher wrote a novel during the summer and
last Sunday he read it to his congregation in place of a sermon.

France has declared herself dependent upon our coal supply this winter.  Just
when we had a strike on our hands too.

has become of the poor old transp we used to feed?

A girl worker in a New York factory recently won $10,000 offered as a prize
by a newspaper for the most beautiful woman in the city.  How would you like
to be a girl worker in a factory and win $10,000?

A missionary reports the most sensible Moslem sheik we have read of.  He
offers to swap the four wives that he has, under the Koran, for one American

Marshall Foch has reported the discovery of 40,000 Belgian freight cars in
