Bird ex- perts then asserted that the. species was In dire danger of extinction. When Dr. William T. Hornaday, the well known game Mfa.s games in-this city, if the Boston icans again win the right to represent their league in the post-season tests, will be' played at Braves' field of the National league, with seat prices the same as last year. Business Manager T. W. Umnin made this an- nouncement Thursday, after the vic- tory of the Red. Sox over Detroit had increased the probability ot Boston's retaining the American league cham- pionship'. As now planned tickets will he on sale at the club's offices a My days before'the series opens. Mail'orders, Mr. L'anuin would havq no'stand_- ing. Box seat prices were set at ?n each, grandstand seats at p. and pa- vilion seats at ?2. General admission will he ?1. here late hi the fall to help organize a state association, he declared that the danger ot extinction' prairie chicken was a -very real and menacing one: He doubted, indeed, whether it was not even then too late to save the species by declaring a closed season for the next five years, though immediate resort should tte had to that expedient.' Many hunters who have shot prairie chicken in the stubble fields of tho northwest for years have pooh-poohed ,nch statements.'They have had var- ious explanations for the marked di- minution in numbers, Mr. Avery holds the spring storms at least partly-rre- sponsible. But everyone knows that the chief factor in the steady wiping out of tlie pinnated grouse is the pop- ping automatics. According to Dr. Hornaday, greatest obstacle to perpetuating the species, after It has been so decimated by shotguns, lies in the fact that it has been found almost impossible., to ,-aise the pinnated grouse in captivity. On the other hand, the ruffled grouse or partridge, the auail, and most..of the species can be so raised under favorable circumstances. Once a bird species is worn down to small numbers by the gunners, it finds increasing difficulty in resisting the inroads of its natural enemies'; and tends to disappear altogether, as did the passenger pigeon. The seem- ing impossibility of hatching and rais- ing prairie' chickens in any numbers makes the outlook dark for these fine birds. The legislatures of the Northwest- ern States should certainly unite in declaring a long closed season, un- less the federal authorities can be prevailed upon to take rigorous pro- tective action.
