The special train bearing the Knights Templar of Maryland and the District of Columbia, on their return from the Twenty-ninth Triennial Conclave of the Grand Encampment which recently convened in the City of San Francisco, Cal., is now approaching the City of Ogden and we are thereby reminded that we will there part with Mr. Harvey, the special repre* sentative of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in the West. Mr. Harvey joined us at Ogden, when we were westward bound and from that hour until the present moment he has been untiring in his efforts to make our journey and our stay in the West as safe and as pleasant as possible. He has by his constant forethought and energy, secured for us many privileges and pleasures which we would not have enjoyed and much of the success and pleasure of the trip has been due to him.
Gratefully appreciating all this, we take this means of expressing to him our gratitude, of assuring him of our best wishes, and expressing the hope that his success in his chosen profession may ever be as great as his efforts on our part have been.

HUNTING AND FISHING GROUNDS ALONG THE
BALTIMORE & OHIO RAILROAD.
PORTSMEN desiring information concerning the
hunting and fishing grounds along the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad will find the following suggestions to their convenience.
Following the line from the east to the west, across the states of Maryland and West l'irginia, every possible kind of game and fish can be found in abundance.
The Susquehanna River is famous for its shad fisheries and the Susquehanna Flats for duck shooting. The river forms the boundary between Cecil and Harford Counties, Maryland, emptying into the Chesapeake Bay at Havre de Grace, which is the most convenient town for sportsmen's headquarters, for this section. In both counties special game laws prevail aside from the regular state laws, made necessary for the protection of game on account of the superabundance thereof, and the possible greed of irresponsible hunters to bag more than a reasonable share. The laws are just and reasonable and fully appreciated by the legitimate sportsmen.
In the table of Open Seasons of Maryland, which is printed herein, is a full list of the various kinds of game, giving condensed information in regard to the seasons, license required, etc.
Between Harford and Baltimore Counties are the marshes of the Gunpowder River: widely known for snipe, rail and reed bird and duck shooting. The Gunpowder and its tributaries also abound in "gudgeon," which are popular among small sportsmen in the early spring.
Baltimore County, as well as Gecil and Harford, borders on the head waters of the Chesapeake Bay. The City of Baltimore, separate from the county, is on the Patapsco River, which forms the Baltimore Harbor, but the Chesapeake Bay proper begins about ten miles below the city.
Anne Arundel County lies south of Baltimore City, with its entire eastern border along the Patapsco River and Chesapeake Bay.
The Baltimore & Olio Railroad from Baltimore to Washington crosses Howard and Prince George ('ounties, through a territory of no principal importance for any kind of game. West of Washington the line crosses Montgomery County and strikes the Potomac River at its confluence with the Monocacy River. From this point the Monocacy Valley extends northward through Frederick County, east of the Catoetin Mountains, the most beautiful agricultural section of Maryland. The river abounds in bass and the surrounding country in small game, such as squirrel, rabbit, pheasant and partridge or quail. It might be mentioned here that "partridge " and ** quail" are synonymous in the states of Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, partridge being the term generally applied. West of the Ohio River the name of "quail” predominates.
From Washington Junction the main line of the railroad skirts the Potomac River through Frederick ('ounty and across a narrow strip of Washington County, crossing the river at Harper's Ferry, where the road enters West Virginia on its route across the Allegheny Mountains, following the border line for most of the distance between Maryland and West Virginia, with Washington and Allegheny Counties in Maryland on the north side of the Potomac, and Jefferson, Berkeley, Morgan, Hampshire and Mineral Counties in West Virginia on the south side, in the order named from east to west.
Throughout this territory of the Potomac River the sportsman will find gooul hunting in the mountainous section for wild turkey, partridge, squirrel, raccoon and rabbit; and in the small mountainous streams emptying into the Potomac trout are abundant. The Potomac River, formerly famous for black bass and pike, is not so well stocked as in former years. The same special laws yoverning fishing in the Potomac River cover Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia.
Among the stopping-off places in this territory most convenient to the sportsman are North Mountain, in Berkeley County, W. Va.: Cherry Run and Berkeley Springs, in Morgan County, W. Va.; Hancock, in Washington County, Md.; Great C'acapon, in Morgan County, W. Va., where the Great Cacapon River empties into the Potomac; and Green Springs, in Hampshire ('ounty. W. Va., on the Potomac River, from which a branch of the railroad runs down to Romney, in the same county. The western portion of Allegheny County, Maryland. and the northern portion of Mineral County, West Virginia, is mountainous and abounds in all kinds of game peculiar to hilly regions. The choice hunting grounds are best reached through Cumberland and Rawlins in Maryland, and Keyser and Piedmont in West Virginia.
Piedmont, W'. Va., is at the foot of the great Allegheny plateau known as The Glades, which lies entirely in Garrett County, Maryland. The best trout fishing in the neighborhood is in the Savage River and its tributaries. On the plateau, which is one of the highest sections of the Alleghenies, are the summer resorts of Oakland, Mountain Lake Park and Deer Park. Here the Youghiogheny River obtains its source.
Some five or ten miles north of the railroad are the Meadow and Negro Mountains, from which choice trout streams wend their way to make up Deep Creek, emptying into the Youghiogheny River, and the Castleman River emptying into the Mononga hela River.
A few miles west of Oakland the railroad leaves Maryland and enters West Virginia in Preston County, descending the Alleghenies from Terra Alta along the Briery Mountains through the famous Cheat River region, passing westward to Grafton, in Taylor County, and into the Tygart's Valley River region. The usual small game abounds in this section. The Cheat and Tygart's Valley Rivers are full of bass and Salmon, and all of the mountain streams are well stocked with trout.
The Belington Branch of the Baltimore & Ohio southward from Grafton follows the Tygart's Valley River towards its source in the Cheat Mountains. Another division of the railroad runs southward from Clarksburg through Harrison, Lewis, L'pshur, Braxton, Webster and Nicholas Counties, through a wild portion of the state, which affords some little deer hunting. Almost the entire state of West Virginia is wooded, hilly and dry and is reached exclusively by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad and its branches.
The railroad runs directly northwest across the state of Ohio to Chicago Junction, from which point a branch line extends northward to Sandusky on Lake Erie. This portion of the state furnishes good duck shooting in the marshes and lowlands of Ottawa, Lucas and Sandusky counties. The most popular streams are Mud Creek, tributary to the Sandusky River; Crane Creek; Toussaint (reek: La Carpe; Sandusky Bay and Maumee Bay. The fishing grounds of Lake Erie in the neighborhood of Sandusky need no introduction.

GAME LAWS OF MARYLAND-Continued.
Licenses for Non-Residents. In all the Counties of the State, except Allegany, nonresidents are now compelled to secure license before they can hunt. The license is issued by the Clerk of the Circuit Court in all the Counties except Wicomico, where the County Clerk is charged with this work. In all of the Coun. ties except the following, land owners or residents may invite non-residents to hunt on their own lands or with them, in which case no license is required. This does not apply to Kent, where even if invited by a resident the non-resident must take out license, costing $5 (Acts 1894, Ch. 601). Caroline, Dorchester (except relatives of blood or by marriage), Garrett, Kent (see above), Somerset (unless accom. panied by resident), Talbot, Wicomico (unless accompanied by resident) and Worcester.
The following Counties require license. To the amount of the license must be added the clerk's fee of 50 cents: Garrett, $25; Chesles, Prince George's, St. Mary's, $20; Fred. erick, Kent ($5 if invited by land owner), Montgomery, $15; Baltimore, Calvert, Carroll, Cecíl (wild water fowl), Harford, Somerset, Washington, Wicomico, Worcester (wild fowl). $10; Talbot, 89.50; Howard, $7.50; Cecil (upland game and shore birds), 85; Caroline, Dorchester and Queen Anne's, $1.51). Most of them are good for one year from date of issue and are non-transferable.
In Washington County no license is required from resl. dents of the District of Columbia and land owners may invite any non-resident to hunt on their own land (Acts 1902, Ch.379).
The term "State Law" is used to indicate the seasons flxed by the public general law of 1898, Ch. 206. in contradistinction to the special county laws. The reasons which apply to the whole State or a majority of the Counties are set forth after the words "State Law;" those relating only to special Counties, in line with that County. In case of conflict the local law prevails.
Muskrat, Raccoon and Otter. Chapter 503, Acts 1902, makes It unlawful to trap, catch or kill, or have in possession, 1f trapped, caught or killed in this State, any otter, raccoon or mu krat between April 1 and January 1. Penalty, $5 to $20. Not to apply to the following Counties: Allegany, Anne Arundel. Baltimore, Calvert, Caroline, Carroll, Cecil, Charles, Frederick, Garrett. Harford,
