Bogardus, a famous resident of Logan county, who spent many of his years in Elkhart and Lincoln. The subject of the article is "Straight Shooters," and was written by Owen P. White. Follow- ing is a portion of the interesting article: "But professional r not, there are still two shotgun records in exist- ence, made back in 1887 and 1888 by Captain A. H. Bogardns, which to lany man who knows what it means c bve a blue shoulder after just a moderate amount of shooting are actually awe-inspiring. But so was the captain himself. "He was a huge man, fine-looking, and as far as shooting goes he wa not only the best of the old school, but he also had a very interesting career. Having been a failure as a carpenter back in Illinois, he took to bird-shooting as a livlihood, and became so proficient at knocking down anything feathered and edible that, back in the late 60's, with all kinds of game entiful, and no laws to restrict his ag, he was able to provide nicely for himself, his wife nd thirteen children. Gradually his name as a hunter, especially as a wing shot, spread over the state. and finally he was induced to enter a match. He did it reluctantly, and won easily; entered some more mtches, won those; and then, with his confidence in his ability firmly established, he went out into the wide, wide world, and within a few years he had annexed all the shotgun titles then in existence. He also owned all the worthwhile medals and trophies there were, and naturally, as the sporting captain wanted to do all his shooting for from $500 to $5,000 a match, he eventually ran out of competition. Nobody would shoot against him, and therefore Captain Bogardus, who had to shoot to live, was forced to the ex- tremity of shooting against himself.

"Anyone who can recall the re- coil of the old-fashioned shotgun will understand why it was that the !brave captain, bruised and battered, 'blind and deaf, was laid up for I weeks. But can anyone explain why [just a few months later, he should t have wanted to step out and break his own record? Anyway, he did. he advertised another "shoot," and broke 5,500 balls in 439 minutes: and right there, so far as this writer [knows, that kind of shotgun-shoot- ainu. came to an abrupt stop.

ILLINOIS PINE FORESTS ESCAPED RUST THIS YEAR Springfield, Ill., Nov. 23.--The white pine forests of Illinois, limited to the 282 acres of "The Pines," one of the beautiful state parks, and Sin- nissippi Farms in Ogle county, the latter omed by Frank O. Lowden, fvrmer governor, have thus far es- caped the bitter rust, a blight that is causing serious damage m the white pine woods of the United States, from Maine to California. Gvernor Louis L. Emmerson re- ceived thi2 infrmation recently in a ,pciat re2mrt prepared by Phil S. Haner, st;eritendent of. Plant In- lustry of the State Department of Agriculture, covering the season's efforts for the control of white pine blister. In his rep.:rt to the gover- no'.-, Mr. Haner explained that the Bureau of Plant Industry of the United States Department of Agri- culture, some time ago informed the Illinois officials that there was every reason to believe the blight, now prevalent as near as Wisconsin, In- diana and Iowa, might reach the lim- ited area of white pine forestation that Illinois prizes so highly because of its rare beauty. Specialists engaged by the United States Department of Agriculture, Mr. Haner's report said, have deter- mined that this blight, an European importation, is spread by spores that grow on wild and domestieted cur- Catherine Stults !ed by many friends and relatives, and there were a number of beautiful Dies At Lake Fork 00ora, o.erings, tokens of great love and esteem.
