i I i 1 1 ! 1 1 1 i MUST RESTOCK FRANCE WITH GAME PARIS, France, November 12. A demand that Germany, Austria and Hungary shall make-good their ravages by restocking the fields and forests-of France with game has been formulated by Count Clary, president of the St. Hubert Club-lut Trance, which considers this restoration essential. The principle that the invader should be held responsible for damage-to French game was accepted by the commissioner of reparations nearly u year ago. Now that tlie peace treaty has been ratified by France, the St. Hubert Club, composed of gunners, has drawn up tlie following demands: That Germany and Austria each be called upon to deliver to France 6,000 deer, 000,000 hares and 3,000,000 brace of partridge and that Austria and Hungary together should be required to deliver 1,-000,000 pheasants. Tlie proposal is that delivery of this "indemnity in kind," the value of. which is placed at 30,000,000 francs, shall be spread over two years.
