Ilnrloy Stnltli, n wealthy runner II v
lns near Portland, Jay county, Ind.,
has found a new avenue for his enter
prise, and his farm of 100 acres la to
be given over In the near future en
tirely to raising quail, says a dispatch
from Indianapolis to the Chicago Hoe-ord-Herald.
He has been experiment
Ins for the last three years and has
'4omo to the conclusion that quail can
lie domesticated and can be made de
cidedly more profitable than any other
kind of fowls, both on account of the
rapidity with which they multiply aud
the little trouble and espouse It Will
require to prepare them for market.
As a means of starting his new In
dustry ho has not penult ted a gun to
be tired on his land for four years and
has Keen the good results of this policy
In the gradual taming of tin; quail till
now they will come around his barn
yard aud eat with the chickens. He
cays there Is a marked difference In
the coveys out III tho fields aud near
tho'house, for when they ore approach
ed In the Holds they appear to bo very
wild, but In tho barnyard they come
about him and pick up the grain and
appear to have lost all their wild na
ture. This applies to the birds that live out
In the Holds and that he tonus wild,
but his experiments with one brood
which he raised by celling the eggs un
der a hen and bringing up with the
barnyard fowls have convinced htm
they may be as completely domesticat
ed as chickens and ducks, and he has
decided to enter the business on a scale
that will test Us practicability and
prove whether there Is really any mon
ey In It.
In order to do this he will secure the
eggs of the quail on his place this sum
mer aud hatch thorn in an Ineiibator
n ml thus begin the domestication at
once nnd before the birds have become
wild. lie will keep the females for fu
ture broods and bell only a part of tho
males, and he hopes to Iiuvo not fewer
than 1,500 egg producing birds when
the season of 1003 opens. These broods
will be raised for market, but the stock
will gradually be Increased If the re
nulls arc satisfactory, and In time ho
will give his entire attention to the In
dustry. Mr. Smith has recently consulted a
lawyer at Portland aud has received n
construction of tho game laws of the
state which he believes will permit him
to take advantage of a market which
affords tho highest price for quail. Un
der the Indiana law the quail hunting
i-eason Is practically limited to six
weeks, and heavy penalties are fixed
for oven having a bird In one's posses
ion at any other time, tho courts hav
ing gone so far as to punish persons
who sold quail out of season, though it
was proved that they were killed In the
hunting season and kept In cold stor
age. Mr. Smith's attorney has advised him
that the law applies only to wlhVblrds
and that If quails are domesticated or
are so reared that they never become
wild they ore not "game" within tho
meaning of tho law, and tho ratser
woi!d have the right to kill them and
place tlioni on tho market at any time
during tho year.
As ho Is now Inhibited from killing
and exposing for sale except from Nov.
10 to Jan. 1 of each year Mr. Smith
thinks prices would be much better
both before and after this time, and It
Is this demand that ho Is arranging to
"I have Investigated the subject thor
oughly," said ho tho other day, "and
am convinced that there Is more uion
oy In a good quail farm than there Is In
cultivating tho ordinary crops. Tho
broods average anywhere from twentv
to thirty, tho bltiis are easily raised.
and thcro Is always a greater demand
than supply. I am In direct comuuml
cation with tho markets of Chicago
Indianapolis, Cincinnati and many otli
or cities, and if tho domesticated birds
can bo sold when the wild birds are
out of season I can get a much better
price than Is paid now. I llud that tho
domesticated bird Is larger also than
tho wild bird, and this will bo In my
favnr. I believe I can have 11,000 to
fiOO ready for market in January,
IDO.'I, and I can more than doublo that
number by another year."
