HUNTING, FISHING AND SPORT Lake Erie produces more fish to the square mile than any other body of water in the world. An, elephant possesses such u delicate sense of smelKtliat it can scent a human being at a distance of 1,000 yards. Bluewing teal start on their southern pilgrimage early in September and afford good sport during that month. There will undoubtedly be more birds later, but he who loves not blustering wcatlier will find fair sport with the early arrivals. Some strange looking fish have recently been landed in the towns of the west English and Welsh coast from trawlers. Many arrive with parts of their bodies missing, and some of the fish are minus tails and eyes, while others have been blinded and badly scarred by the explosions of the depth bombs which were used during the war to destroy German submarines. Quail are said to be unusually numerous In central Illinois this year, the result of a dry nesting and hatching season, and that there should be good shooting on these birds during the open season in November. Rabbits the cottontail which were quite scarce last year, are also said to be quite plentiful this year, and they, too, it is predicted, will furnish good sport for nimrods this autumn.
