Circulars have been sent broadcast

evils that have arisen from the whole wholesale

strong terms that the people demand
that their representatives in Wash Washington

now before Congress.
Some astonishing facts are set forth
in the circular, among these being the
amazing information that the loss to
the nation through the destruction
wrought by Insect life reaches the
colossal sum of $420,100,000.
It is estimated that something like
5,000,000 men and boys are slaughter slaughtering

of the best bird species are on the to toboggan

passed the dodo, the apteryx, the Es Eskimo

Three important results follow the
destruction of bird life: A great in increase
crease increase in the armies of destructive in insects;
sects; insects; a great decrease in our agri agricultural
cultural agricultural products, and an enormous
loss to consumers and farmers.
Wheat Crop Destroyed
Some Idea of the harm that Insects
do to crops may be formed from the
fact that in the year 1900 more than
2,500,000 acres of wheat were destroy destroyed

sian Hessian fly.
Recently the United States Depart Department
ment Department of Agriculture made a study of
the losses throughout the country due
to the ravages of insects. Cotton
suffers to the extent or sov.uuu.vuu, ana
truck crops are damaged $53,000,000
worth. Cereals lead with a yearly
damage of $200,000,000.
Here in the South the boll weevil
costs the cotton planter over $20,000,000
every year. The tree insects do dam damage
age damage throughout the country that
amounts to $100,000,000. And so the
heavy toll increases until It rolls up
to proportions that are enough to
stagger the average mind.
The Task of the Birds
It Is the task of the birds to cut
down this terrible loss to the farmers,
and others engaged in pursuits in
which this loss is felt. The value of
birds destroyed as "game" and for
"food" is less than .001 part of the
value they would have to the nation if
permitted to live and war upon the
While It is at once apparent that
the birds which sportsmen are yearly
permitted to kill are of immense value
to agriculture, comparatively few peo people
ple people have so far given the matter seri serious

that feed on noxious insects and are of
untold worth to the farmer. Song Songbirds,

also destroy countless millions of in insects
sects insects every year.
According to the circular issued by
the comm'ttee, the South is annually
the scene of the slaughter of millions
of insect eating birds. "Around every
Island," says the circular, "during the
robin season, in January when the
berries are ripe, at least 10,000 robins
are slaughtered daily for the pot. Ev Every
ery Every negro man and boy who can raise
a gun is after them."
Birds that Are "Game"
The classification or various birds
as "game" is interesting as interpreted
in the different states. For instance,
seven states, Louisiana, Mississippi,
Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee,
Virginia and Flor'da, list the robin in
this class. Five states, Louisiana,
South Carolina, Tennessee, District of
Columbia and Pennsylvania, permit
the blackbird to be k'lled as game.
Cranes are killed and eaten in Colo Colorado,
rado, Colorado, Nevada, Nebraska, North Da Dakota
kota Dakota and Oklahoma. In twenty-six
states doves are killed as game, to the
great loss of the farmers.
The quail has no equal, according to
the naturalists, as a destroyer of nox noxious

coming becoming extinct.
Must Stop Slaughter
And so it goes. The friends of the
national law protecting all migratory
birds say that there must be no more

of the law the circular says:
"The only way in which all these
valuable migratory birds can be saved
to us is through the strong arm of the
national government and a federal law
for the protection of all migratory
birds. Protection of game birds alone
will not answer. Too many other birds
are being killed, especially in the
