The following article is furnished
The Republican by T. W. Kemp, an
expert ostrich farmer and feather
worker, who has been in this valley
most of the time since last April. Mr.
Kemp has been connected with the
ostrich industry most of Ills life, and
knows by experience, observation and
statistical information those things of
which lie writes. He is a native of
England, has lived a great deal in
South Africa and has devoted him
self enthusiastically to tho ostrich
business. Since coming here last
April he made a tour of California
and saw all the ostrich farms of that
state, and returned to Phoenix con
vinced that of all places in the world
suitable for ostrich growing no other
offers the advantages to be found in
this valley. Mr. Kemp believes, how
ever, that the people of this valley
are not living up to their opportuni
ties, by any means. Even as the con
ditions now are, the Industry . is
amazingly profitable, and he believes
there should be many others engaged
in It, but he emphasizes that with se
lective breeding, correct treatment and
a better balanced food ration, the
profits can bo greatly increased. Dur
ing his residence here he was con
nected with one of the local farms for
some time, and knows the conditions
on all of them, so he speaks not as
a casual observer, but as one who
has studied his subject.
Mr. Kemp's Article.
- To me it appears strange to notice
the lack of enthusiasm that exists in
the Salt River valley with reference
to the ostrich farming Industry and
its great possibilities. In the Salt
River valley the conditions arc so
nearly similar to those existing in
South Africa that I feel if the facts
were known the ostrich would become
the most valuable asset of this sec
tion of tho country.
In my experience of over twenty
years in the ostrich feather business,
farming the birds in South Africa
and America, and dyeing and manu
facturing plumes in England and
America, I know of no place where
the climatic conditions, combined with
an assured supply of water for the
growing of crops, is so propitious for
this Industry, and more especially in
view of the fact that the United
States has, a protective tariff of 20
per cent on the raw feathers and 60
per cent on the manufactured article,
thereby placing 'the industry In Amer
ica beyond competition, were the
American growers anywhere near able
to supply the demand.
Too much credit cannot be given to
the ostrich farmers of Arizona who
have accomplished so much In plac
ing the industry on such a sound I
basis, they having conclusively proven
that ostriches thrive and multiply In
the Salt River Valley. Not only this,
but the feathers grown are of a good
standard quality and find a ready
sale In Xew York in competition with
those Imported from South Africa,
which country at present produces at
least 95 per cent of the world's prod
uct. In the Salt River Valley there are
now approximately 5,000 ostriches, a
large majority of which are still
young birds, producing some $100,000
worth of feathers annually, which val
ue will be Increased materially when
the birds mature, the birds not being
in their best plumage until maturity
which they reach at about four years.
The Salt Elver valley has already
more ostriches than any other one
spot in the world with the exception
of South Africa, where the breeding
and farming of these birds has been
reduced to a science, and where the
business in raw feathers alone has
reached the enormous sum of over
The money received from tho raw
feathers goes directly Into the pock
ets of the ranchers of that country
the same as the pin nfoncy earned by
the ranchers wives in America from
the raising of chickens. The ostrich

As a money maker.thc ostrich takes
second place to none, the raising of
theso birds being a money maker from
the very start. At birth a chick is
easily worth $25 and rapidly increases
in value until it arrives at maturity.
At about six months, the first clip
ping of feathers has a nominal value
of from $7 to $10, and from that time
on tlit value of the feathers increases
rapidly as the birds mature, until they
the giving from $20 to $50 and up
wards per clipping, clippings being
taken every nine months, these
amounts depending upon careful se
lective breeding, balanced ration and
correct treatment at clipping and
Say a steer at three years old Is
worth $50 and will return to the
farmer a profit of $10 when sold.
To keep the steer until ready for
market means a feed consumption of
about 40 'lbs. of alfalfa daily when
not on the range, while an ostrich
will require only about seven or eight
-pounds of green feed daily, and will
return his owner from $20 to $50
and upwards per clipping from mature
birds, still leaving the owner in pos
session of his flock, which has by
this time reached a value far in ex
cess of the steer.
I have been frequently asked the
question is there a possibility of
an overproduction of ostrich feathers?
In answer to tills I can only say: The
ostrich feather has been used as an
article ofadornment for many cen
turies and the demand today is great
er than ever, partly due to the ban
placed upon the wearing of plumes of
birds other than the ostrich and to
the fact that no other similar article
of adornment js really so economical,
a good plume correctly treated lasting
for many years. That the market
value of the raw feathers has stead
ily Increased for the past few years
is also an Indication of the de
mand, and the fact that many fac
tories arc becoming more and more
versatile in the production of artistic
designs has done much toward stand
ardizing the ostrich feather for adorn
ment America is the largest consum
er of ostrich feathers in the world.
Importing at the present time upwards
of $5,000,000.00 annually, and this
field being protected by the tariff
above referred to, places the American
grown feather in a position practical
ly beyond competition. If the Amer
can ostrich farmers in arranging their
breeding pens will bear In mind an
ideal plume, and endeavor to-breed up
to that standard, no stock responding
so quickly to selective breeding.
Arizona being so favorably situated
for the farming of these birds, it
makes the industry of special import
to the farmers of the Salt Rivey Val
ley, and by bearing in mind the fact
that co-operation is Just as necessary
for the growers of ostriches In mark
eting their feathers as co-operation
is necessary for the fruit growers, and
by using improved methods as -suggested
above in matters pertaining
to breeding, feeding and care, there
Is no reason why a quality of feather
cannot be produced in this Valley
equal to or better than the South
African product, and If enough birds
could be raised on the ranches of
this valley to even -partly supply the
American demand, it is not hard to
figure what this would mean.
In South Africa today high class
birds for breeding are bringing from
$1,250 to $2,000 each and the South
African government expert informed
me when in Phoenix a short time
ago that his government recently
paid $20,000 for four birds for their
stud farm showing thereby what se
lective breeding and care has done
in producing ostriches of extraordin
In closing I append prices ruling in
Rheumatism is an acrid blood fermentation, a souring of the circu
lation from an excess of uric acid in. the blood stream. This uratic
impurity is transmitted to the blood through the process of absorption,
and comes as a result of constipation, indigestion and other systemic
When the blood becomes infected with this uratic impurity the
complications of Rheumatism are set up. The circulation is no longer
able to furnish the different muscles, nerves and joints with the nour
ishment and strength they need, but instead deposits into these-mem-bers
the gritty, pain-producing acid with which it is contaminated.
Rheumatism is usually manifested in the joints and muscles. It is
here its sharpest twinges of pain are felt and stiffening of ligaments and
tendons first commence. The pain of Rheumatism is caused by the
contact of the sensory nerves with the gritty, acrid formation which
uric acid causes to accumulate in the corpuscles of the blood about the
joints. The severer symptoms of the disease come on gradually.
Constantly the circulation deposits the uric acid particles into the
muscles and joints, and slowly the natural fluids are dried up or
hardened. Then Rheumatism becomes chronic and serious, and if
allowed to run on, may permanently cripple or break down th health
of the sufferer. The disease is sometimes inherited, for like all blood
troubles, it can be transmitted from parent to child. This explains
why some persons are afflicted with Rheumatism who have always
been healthy otherwise.
There is but one way to cure Rheumatism, and that is to purify
the blood cleanse the circula
tion of the uric acid impurity.
S. S.-S. goes into the blood and
attacks the disease at its head,
and by removing every particle
of the uratic matter, and building
up the blood to a healthful con
dition, this medicine destroys the
cause and cures Rheumatism.
When S. S. S. has cleansed the
blood of the acrid impurity, en
riched and strengthened the cir
culation, then the nerves are
quieted, the muscles become
elastic, the blood tissues are
thickened and freshened, all pain
disappears, and the feverish,
inflamed flesh is made comfort
able. Nothing equals S. S. S. as
a cure for Rheumatism, because
nothing equals it as a blood
purifier. No matter whether
you have the disease in muscu
lar, articular or inflammatory form, you can have no permanent relief
from its aches and pains until you have cleansed and purified ihe blood.
S. S. S. has cured thousands and it will cure you. We have a special
book on Rheumatism which we will send together with any medical
advice free to all who write and request same.

RHEUMATISM ALL GONE
I with yon to know what great benefit I
bare received from the ute of S.S.S. I have
been afflicted with Rheumatism for twenty
years, sometimes being entirely laid up by it
and always lame in some part of my body.
It grew worse until it was misery to attempt
to walk at all; my right knee was nearly
twice its natural size, and was drawn op con
siderably shorter than the other one. A friend
advised me to take S.S.S. , which I commenced.
I bad tried so many things that I mast say
that I had very little faith that it would do
rae any good, bat was willing to try anything
that promised relief. Before I had been
nsing it long I was greatly relieved, and con
tinning the medicine I soon found I was en
tirely cored. The lameness and soreness all
left. I can straighten, move or bend my leg
as well as any one, and I have never known
what rhenmatisa was since. I am 65 years
old and feel deeply grateful to S.S.S.
