HUNTERS PAY LARGE SUM TO STATE
The Wisconsin conservation commission collected $385,425 in license fees paid by hunters, fishermen and trappers during the last year. This is an increase of $80,000 over the $305, 198 collected in 1921.
Hunters paid the greater part of the license fees collected during the year, $160,433 of them having paid the residence-hunting fee. Nonresident hunters paid $15,675. Anglers fees faid by nonresidents totalled $67,803, while trappers paid fees of $56,078.
The sale of deer tags brought in $15,962, and of beaver licenses, $7,780. Through the sale of rough fish $19,549 was paid as the state's share and confiscation brought in an additional $6,338.
Most of the license fees collected by the conservation commission go into the state's general fund and total over $100,000 more than the appropriation for operating the state department, warden force and all.
463 cows were tested during the month of September. A pur bred Holstein cow owned by Carl Jorenby was high cow. She produced 63.8 lbs. Of butter fat for the month. John Wuethrich had the high producing herd with an average of 39.4 lbs. Of butter fat per cow.

A fine looking Guernesy bull of the May Rose breeding was recently purchased by Mr. Otto Schwarze from a breeder at Appleton, Wis.
A car load of grade Holstein heifers was shipped Saturday from Greenwood to Missouri. Heifers from dams with cow testing records were given from $10 to $15 more for their stock. In no instance were heifers purchased where a pure bred sire was not used.
