TRADE IN PERSIA LE88.
Provalcnce of Cholern Injuries Coun?
The Iradu of Porsiii far tho your
ending March 31, 1005, as compared
with the previous yoar, shows n full?
ing off of nliout 13 per cent, owing
to the prevalence of cholera In Per?
sia and thy war between Japan and
III spile of tho war, however. Rus?
sia still holds first place In tho tradu
relations of the Shah's dominion. She
sends to Persia olio-half of her Im?
ports, and takes from hor nearly
two-thirds of her uxpurls, according
to the record of 1005,
It may be said Mini Russia and (Irent
llrltslu together practically monop?
olize tliu trade with Persia, standing
for four-fifths of the Imports and two
thirds of tlie ex ports.
The Influence of Russia predomi?
nates, not only because of her geog?
raphical position, but because, by al?
most prohibitive transit duties and
liberal export, bounties to her manu?
facturers, she effectively rtbuts null
foreign trade with Petslr. except by
way of the Persian tlulf. from which
transportation Into the interior hi ox
orouioly difficult and costly, owing to
the wretched roads.
The cnraraii road from Bhlraz to
Uushlre, Ihu chief port on the .Pers?
ian Gulf, Is obstructed by a series of
kntals, or steep, transverse rocky
ridges, which make the route Imprac?
ticable even for camels. No beasts
of burden are equal to this arduous
lank e'xeept mules specially trained
for the nervlee. Thus trau.qiortulion,
the inline factor In commerce. In Im?
peded by the laws of nature In the
EOUth and by the laws of Russia in
the north, ami it remains practically
the same an It was In Biblical the
(lavs. |f the commercial statistic*
arc reliable the balance of trade hi
persistently against Persia, and has
been from a remote past.
According to the figures of 1905, the
trade of the United Slates with Per?
sia Is Insignificant. The only Item
among tho Imports fnuu Ibis country
In excess of $100,000 la silver bul?
lion, and that st?nde for nine-tout lu;
of our tolal exports to Persia for the
Tin- most Important export from
from Persia to the Mulled States
was woolen carpels, valued at aboill
$30,000. This figure represents tho
amount of direct exports from Per?
sia, but tea or twenty limes that
amount of Persian carpets made
from wool and sill, was shipped to
New York by way of ConstantIhoplo,
Turkey. These carpets and rugs are
manufactured In all parts' or Persia,

FOX PUPS IN INCUBATOR.
Silver Grays Will bo Worth $600
When Raised and Grown.
What Is probably the first, attempt,
to bring up a pair of fox puppies In an
Incubator is being made by Andrew
Clark, an old woodsman, living 11
miles southwest of M'Keever, N. Y.,
and the experiment has gone so far
that Clark feels assured of buccchh.
Tho Incubator Isn't of the regula?
tion hospital order, and neither are
the foxes of tho usual variety. Tho
Incubator in home-made and the ten?
ants are sliver grays, which by fall
will. If I hey thrive, be worth nt least
$;I00 each. Of all the fur-bearing ani?
mals In America they are by far tho
most valuable and It Is because of this
that Clark Is sitting up nights with
hot-water bottles and cans of warm
Clark dug the youngsters out of a
hole under some rocks. When he got
home and laid the little fellows In n
basket be was in n quandary, for they
were scarcely a week old, and being
a lonesome bachelor his knowledge of
the ways and habits of infants was
extremely limited. So Clark sent for
his nearest neighbor, who has a wife
and three small boys. The wife camo
with her husband and brought a bot
tlo with a nipple. Then she took
-charge of tho job.
Clark sot about constructing a
rough but servlcable Incubator. It
wasn't much to look at. but it an?
swered the purpose, and when the fox?
es had been deposited In It they
promptly went to sleep.
Now and then the neighbor's wife
dropped in to see how matters were
progressing and she always found
Clark performing his duties faithful
jlv. He was so constant. In fact, and
the silver grnys did so well that more
thBn once she declared be should nev?
er have remal )? d a bachelor. The lit
! tic fellows took on weight dally, ap
Ipsared happy now, and when the fox?
es nre taken out they ar econtented.?
