"A SETTA" AND LAND POLICIES
Hllo'a Portuguese paper responds to

Tho next day tho captain shipped' by
express to a commission merchant at
Detroit several dozen fat. robust and
Juicy frogs, accompanied by a letter
telling the dealer that the sender
could supply as many as he should
want every week. Tho boy expected
to get a letter within a week or two.
The next day he received a telegram.
"Will tako every rrog you can catch,"
rend the wire from the Detroit man.
That night Billy Connor quit work on
the farm and entered upon tho field of
catcning rrogs by the hundreds.
With a pond where there were mil
lions nnd millions or frogs the youth
thought his dreams of success had been
realized. He had changed his mind
about being a detective or a train rob
ber and had decided to become a frog
merchant. And besides It wasn't work,
It was better than play. In addition
ho was to receive the sum of si a dozen
for" his fun. For nearly a year Cap
tain Connor, then Billy Connor, went
"frogglng" every day. Each morning
ho Bhlpped dozens and dozens of frogs
legs to tho Detroit merchants. At tho
end of tho season when ho got tired
of the business and other people had
begun to tnko a hand ln the game ho
quit with something like $1000 to his
