OPPORTUNITY

You all know those clever but somewhat "chestnutty" verses on opportunity. We are told that opportunity knocks once at every man's door.

Fudge!

Opportunity knocks at every man's door every morning, and gets there before the milk. There is never a day that opportunity does not knock at our doors, but many of us

are too deaf to hear. Those whose senses are more acute become either great merchants, or great insurance men, or sometimes even police captains, which we know by the daily papers is the greatest graft of all. But what I was about to observe-when I started moralizing—was, that opportunity knocked at your door last month when RECREATION asked you for some good fishing stories. Some of you responded, and now I am going to ask the other fellows to get busy. We have got a nice, long fishing season ahead of us. I have laid in a good stock of hooks and floats, and I know where some fine, fat garden worms are hibernating, so I anticipate a lot of pleasure between April 1 and the time the beach birds come along and win over my affections. I hope you other fellows will also have a good time, and that you will find the fish not over-coy, of goodly proportions, and that the farmer won't chase you off with a bulldog or a pitchfork, as he does me, sometimes-though I have little to fear, as I am fleet of foot.

WHAT WE LACK

Some of our friends tell us that we do not lack anything, that the magazine is just as

good as it can be. Whereat we blush and say nothing. Yet we feel that we lack a few thousand readers, as we want to reach the 100,000 mark during 1906. Won't you help us obtain the object of our ambition? You LIKE RECREATION. Would not you like it

RECREATION'S
PLATFORM

An uncompromising fight for the protection, preservation and propagation of all game; placing a sane limit on the bag that can be taken in a day or season; the prevention of the shipment or transportation of game, except in limited quantities, and then only when accompanied by the party who killed it; the prohibition of the sale of game. These are "Recreation's" slogans now and forever.

better if it were twice as thick? Well, it can be made so if each reader will consider it a point of honor during the coming year to introduce at least one subscriber. We shall then have many more than 100,000.

REMEMBER THE PRICE

No more marked-down, bargain-counter sales. Each issue marked in plain figures— $1.50 a year, or 15 cents a copy. A little figuring will show you that by subscribing by the year you save 30 cents, and that will buy three ice-cream sodas, or other equally useful and ornamental articles.
