Latest Reports from Leading
Dr. Prothroe. (he owner, and Mr. Skctchly,
his assistant, from Cape Town. .South Africa,
recently cann overland to California with ten
male and twolve A male ostriches, v.-luod at
$20,000. and .000 railway charges. After he
jirg exhibited at Woodward's Gardens in San
Francisco, they were taken to their home in
Fresno county, where the new enterprise will
he conducted under tne direct ion of (.'. C. Brings.
On account of superior evenness of vlliniate tho
Doctor feels assured of larger production, al
most total exemption from ricks, and finer
feathers than at Cape Colony. He introduced
the same Syrian arh-tyot birds in Buenos
Ayres, whore ins expectations have been fully
realized. The male hires are- plucked, as well
:is the females, at two years. At Capo Colony
one male and two females make a family. The
average weight of these birds is. 2."0 pounds
each. The males are black and white; the fe
males mouse colored. liven s-even or eight
months after the lir.-t laying each bird gives
100 first quality feathers from lis wings and
tail, valued at $1S0. besides inferior ones from
hack and brca-t. ()-.tr:chci begin to lay turnip
pized eggs, in sand nests, at live years old.
3ach family of two hens lays about 10 eggs a
year from which 113 chicks are raised by arti
ficial heat. In three weeks after leaving tho
nest they begin to lay again. Till three months
old the chicks are tenderly cured for. Then
they run in fiockslikeshecp, being very hardy,
till five years old, when those for breeding are
kepi apart. Except in breeding time they are
easy to approach and handle, but their eyes are
hooded for plucking. An expert seizes tho
juill end low down, and with a sudden slap
twists it out. They say it i.s not exactly pain
ful, but very smaiting. Each family is in
closed with a high fence, which an eight-foot
hird caunot ovei look. The market value at the
Cape may be quoted : Birds at three months,
$S0; at two years, .sl.'O each bird; when ripe,
at live ycais, $1,000 to 1.-00 for a family of
three. Dr. Prothroe Minis up his anticipated
results from this venture at the end of five
years, at 2,100 birdsand cash for 2 10.000 feathers.
A year later 18,000 birds and .K0,000 feathers,
and so on yearly ad infinitum during tho
twentyfivo remaining years of the average
bird's fife. An idea of the possible profits from
ostrjeh farming may be derived from tho fact
that Cape Colony derives six and a quarter
million of dollars a year from exported feathers.
A second farm is to be established in Los Ange
es county, and an expert is now on his way
from South Africa, with fifty birds, with which
to stock it. The American consuls at. Cape
Colony and Buenos Ayres say the "bhd is very
liardy and will thrive in any of the Southern
States where there is no great excess of heat or
A bill has been introduced in the Florida
Legislature to incorporate the " International
Railroad and Steamboat Company of Florida."
with a capital stock not to exceed $15,000,000,
to construct a railroad from a point on the
Georgia line to Key West and Tampa, Florida.
Among the incorporators "are (Jen. John B.
Gordon, of Georgia: William D. Watson and
2Cathauiel Green, of England; Dr. Edward War
ren, of France: Hugh .1. .Tewett, of New York;
and Maj. Robert W. Hunter, of Virginia. Tho
length of the contemplated road is estimated at
400 miles, and the bill provides that the State
of Florida shall grant the company 15,000 acres
of land for each mile of road completed, in re
turn for the "large amount of tralhc and trade
through the entire length of the State to and
from the Y.'csfc Indies, Mexico and Central and
South .America" which it is claimed the con
struction of the road would secure. It is under
stood that Gen. Gordon expects also to receive
Government aid in the public lands belonging
to the "United States along the line of his con
templated road. Under the bill the company
is also granted the privilege of holding, owning
and hiring such vessels, propelled either by
sails or steam, as may be requisite to connect
with the proposed railroad for the purpose of
conveying mails, freight or passengers.
At the annual meeting of the stockholders of
the Xew York, Chicago and St. Louis Railway
Company, better known as tho " Nickel Plate,"
tho old directors were re-elected, with the one
exception that Frederick W. Yanderhilt took
the place of General Magee. W. II. Yanderhilt
was elected president; D. W. Caldwell, vice
president and general manager; F. W. Yander
hilt, secretary and treasurer, and II. II. Ham
mersley, assistant treasurer. The Yanderhilt
interest voted on 200,000 shares of stock, besides
150,000 shares by proxy. President Yander
hilt, in reply to a question, said if the road
does not pay the fixed charges the Lake Shore
Company will not pay the deficiency, and that
the Lake Shore asumes no obligation further
than any other stockholder. He expects the
"Nickel Plate" to earn at least tho fixed
charges, and says it will be maintained a sep
arate organization in all respects. The direct
ors of the "Nickel Plate" voted to issue ten
million second mortgage bonds, but it is under
stood only about three million will be placed

at least three million tons, which is one of the

THE STOCK MARKET.
EeTiew of tho Week In Wnll Street and Closing
Special to The National Tribune.
New York, Feb. G. The market to-day was
dull and featureless. Two or three of tho
smaller branches of tho Bull party bought
some stocks but as it was evident that no or
ders came from headquarters tho market was
left severely alone and fluctuations were con
fined to narrow limits. Towards tho close
prices became fractionally lower, principally
through sales of small holders, who became dis
gusted with the result of the day's operations.
Money continues easy at -1 per cent.

A RARE OFFER !
Hitherto a low-priced watch has been the very poorest
of imestnicnts; being of no value as a time-keeper, and
a constant source ot expense and annoyance to its owner.
Ihe WATISKIJLKY WAT 1 1 1" will be found a
marvel of simplicity, accuracy, and cheapness.
M M VLE, because it is composed of less than one-half
the UMial number of parts in a watch, which are p
arranged as to be easily cleaned or repaired.
At tl'UATE, because It will run twentv-four hours,
nnd keep time equal to the better grades of watches.
CIIEA1', because it will wear for years, and ia offered
at a price within the reach of everybody.

To all Officep.3 and
SotDinns who LOST
I TIIJCIR PRIVATE
HOUSES or EQUIPMENTS during the late war.
Congress has just passed the Bill extending the timo
for hling claims for Horses nnd Equipments lost by offi
cers and enlisted men in the military service of tho
United States for One Year only, and all claims of
this class which are not filed in the proper Department
on or before January 0, 1S34, will be forever barred,
and cannot be received, considered, or audited bv any
Department of the Government. Without doubt, no
lurther extension of time will be allowed in which to
present these claims, thousands of which, honest, due,
and unpaid, are still outstanding, and have never been
prepared orsubmitted. Immediate action on the part of
those interested Is imperative if they desiro to recover.

CAN I OBTAIN A PATENT?
Send a rough sketch or fif vou can) a model of vour
invention to GEOISOE E. LCMOV, Washiimtoi!,
I). C, and a Preliminary Examination will be
made of all United States Patents of the same clas3of
inventions, and you will be advised whether or not a
Patent can be obtained.
FOR THIS PRELIMINARY EXAMINATION
NO CHARGE IS MADE.
What will a Patent Cost?
If you aro advised that your invention is patentable,
Fend 20 to pay Government application fee of S15, and
So for the drawings required by the Government. This
is payable when application is made, and U all of 10
expense unless a Patent is allowed. When allowed, tho
attorney's fee (S-.") and the linal Government fee (.iO)
is payable. Thus you know belorehand, 'jor nothing,
whether you are going to get a Patent or not. and no at
torney's lee is charged unless you do get a Patent. An
attorney whose fee depends on his success in obtaining a
Patent will not advise you that your invention is patent
able unless it really is patentable, so far as his best judg
ment can aid in determining the question; hence, you
can rely on the advice given after a preliminary exami
nation is had. Design Patent, and the Registration
ot" Labels, Trade-MarKs and Re-iucs sepured.
Ca eats prepared and tiled. Applications in revivor of
Rejected, Abandoned, or Forfeited Cases made.
Very often valuable inventions are saved in these classes "
of exses. If you have undertaken to secure your own
patent and failed, a skillful handling of the case may
lead to success. Send me a written request, addressed to
the Commissioner of Patents, that he recognize GconoE
11 Lkmo.v, of Washington, D. C, as your attorney in tho
case, giving the title of the invention and about the data
of tiling your application. An examination and report
will cost you nothing. Searches made for title to in cn
tions; in fact, any information relating to Patents
promptly furnished. Copies of Patents mailed at tha
tegular Government rates (Qoc. each). Remember, this
otlice has been in successful operation since 1SC5, and you
therefore reap the benefits of experience; besides, refer
ence can be given to actual cl ients in almost every county
in the United States. Pamphlets relating to Patents freo
