THE GERMAN CANARY
STRONGER AND MORE MELODIOUS
THAN ANY OTHER VARIETY.
Nearly a Million of the Birds Bred
In the Harz Mountains Every Year.
Almost All Classes of People There
Are In the Business.
Nearly all the canaries imported into
America are from Germany. A Green
wich street bird dealer of New York
imports from 60,000 to 70,000 canaries
a year, and estimates the total Ameri
can importations of the melodious lit
tle creatures at about 200,000 annually.
Everything considered the German
canary birds are more satisfactory to
most people than those bred anywhere
else. They are not so hardy in this
country, perhaps, as the American
bred; they are not so large and good
looking as the English or Scotch va
rieties, nor so freakily showy as those
raised in Belgium. But of all canaries
the German bred sing most satisfacto
rily, and as ninety-nine in a hundred
buyers of birds want them for their
songs, the bulk of the business is in
The canary was first found wild in
the islands of the same name, though
whether the islands were named from
the bird or the bird from the islands
nobody knows. Today, though canary
birds still fly about in freedom among
the tree branches of the Canary and
the Madeira islands, many thousands
more are bred in Germany than any
where, probably than everywhere, else.
And for some reason most German
canaries are bred in that part of Ge'
many known as the Harz mountains.
2erhaps there is a climatic reason for
Harz mountain birds to be stronger
and more melodious than others; per
haps the breeders there learned the i
busin'ess better than other breeders i
250 years ago when the birds were 4
first taken to Europe; perhaps it just j
happened so. At all events, there are 1
not only more Harz mountain ca
naries than any others, but they are i
the best in everything but size, color I
and freakishness; St. Andreasberg.
whence came the famous full roller
songsters, is in the Harz mountains.
Inasmuch as the Harz mountain
breeders have to supply the demand
for canaries in all parts of Germany
and some.other European countries as
well as the chief part of the American
demand, It i probable that nearly a
million birds are bred there every
year. Oddly enough, while the raising I
of canaries is one of the leading indus
tries of the region, no one is under- 1
stood to be devoted exclusively to
canary breeding. Nearly all classes of
people breed canaries-the butcher, the
baker and the candlestick maker; the
farmer, the blacksmith, the miller and
all. The most extensive breeder
known to the Greenwich street im
porter breeds only 700 or 800 a year,
while many breed only a few each, so
there must be thousands and thou
sands of breeders.
The German canaries begin to reach
this country early in August, and the 1
shipments continue all through the fall
and winter, the heaviest of them com
ing in November and'December, just
in time for the birds to be useful as
toliday presents. Importation stops in
Mfarch for the year.
The birds reach this country at ages.
ranging from a few months to a year.
The younger ones have not been taught
to sing of course, and really are not
wanted by American dealers as a rule,
for teaching them to sing is a tedious
operation. No Importer likes to refuse a
consignment of young birds with the
demand as great as it is, however, for
fear some other dealer will get them.
As practically every bird breeder in
the Harz mountains has some other
way of making a living besides hatch
ng, rearing and selling canaries,
which are thus a byproduct, they are
generally bred just under the roofs, in
the attics, and there kept till they have
learned to sing. Different breeders
adopt different methods of teaching the
Many a breeder keeps in his posses
sion as long as it lives one especially
good singing bird; the young birds hear
his song and imitate it Others prefer
the canary organ, a queer whistling
instrument whose motive power Is a
stream of water from a pipe acting
on a little water wheel. This mechan
ical melody-producer is kept going con
tinuously when birds are being taught
to sing, and the fact that it never gets
tired or falls asleep gives it one value
not possessed by the living bird.
Some breeders use both the livIng
bird and the canary organ, only run
ning the latter when the former refuses
Canaries are bred in every country of
Europe, but mostly for domestic con
sumpion. English canaries are much'
larger than the German birds, one rich

English canary being twice or thrice
the size of the average little St An
dreasberg roller. Not only do English
bred canaries, for some unexplained
reason, tend to grow larger than the
German breed, but, and for an equally
little understood reason, their song,
though loud and vociferous enough, is
not nearly so melodious as the German
A famous English variety Is the
Manchester topknot, a canary with a

nary is another variety and those who
fncy any of these will pay a high

being from $8 to $10 for ordinary birds
of any of these types up to $100 for
unusual examples, while the German
singers are worth much less, $2 to

fancy canaries develop a graceful
curve between the tip of the tail and
the top of the head that has almost
the exact sweep of the crescent. There
are other fancy varieties of canaries,
none of which are bred in great num
bers or valued much except by a few
specialists, but all of which are held
at higher figures by those who like
them than the singing birds generally
are by anybody.

head. These fins aid the fish to some
extent in swimming. They are small
oars which the fish feathers very beau
tifully and are of value chiefly to pre
serve its equilibrium. It is with these
fins that the fish maintains its horizon
tal position in the water when not 2
swimming. Without them the fish a
would stand on its head. Sometimes a
fish loses one or both of its pectoral a
fins by disease or by accident A fish a
without pectoral fins is In a bad way.
While most fishes keep a horizontal
position in the water when not swim
ming, there are fishes that do not One
of these fishes Is the filefish, which
when motionless suspends itself In the
water, head downward, at an angle of
forty-five degrees or even nearer the
perpendicular. A filefish kept in an
aquarium which had lost both its pec
toral fins inclined over backward past
the perpendicular when motionless to
about the same angle that It would
have kept In the other direction if its
pectoral fins had been intact, so that
when not in motion it seemed to be ly
ing at an angle on Its back.
In the same aquarium there was a
striped bass weighing about a pound
and a half, one of whose pectoral finsA
was attacked at the tip by fungus,
which gradually encroached upon it.
Finally the diseased portions of the fin
were cut off with a pair of sharp shears,
the cut being made within the sound
part of the fin. At first the fish was
like a man in a boat pulling one long
oar and one short one-it couldn't hold
a course. - But It soon accustomed it
self to its new condition, and there
after It got along very comfortably. '
A Serious Matter, Guarded Jealously
by the State.
One reason why the Swiss fare well
is that their public school system is
probably the best in the world, and
with them public school education is
practically compulsory. You can send
your child to a private school (in some
cantons) if you insist upon so doing,
but the face of the governinent and the
force of -public opinion are sternly
against the practice. In the canton of
Solothurn private schools are absolute
ly forbidden. In other cantons a pri
vate school pupil must secure a formal
permit from the local authorities, and
in some cantons he must pay a charge
to the public funds. The idea Is that
the public schools are good enough for
all; that rich and poor are to meet
there on even terms; that the public
school Is the nursery of democracy and
patriotism; above all, that democracy
is the lifeblood and strength and very
soul of the republic, and the republic is
Switzerland, and without the republic
Switzerland Is nothing. Private schools
for Swiss children are few in number,
and such as exist are under the strict
supervision of the state. Education is
a serious matter in Switzerland. There
is no escape from it. A parent must
send his children to school or go him
self to jaiL They kept a Seventh Day
Adventist In jail for two years because
he refused to let his child attend school t
on Saturdays. As it then seemed likelya
he wouldspend therest ofhis lfeina a
cell he surrendered.--Everybody's Mag-2

There is a lesson in the work of the '
thrifty farmer. He knows that the I
bright sunshine may last but a day and
he pre pares for the showers which are
so liable to follow. So it should be with
every household.. Dysentery, diarrhoea
and cholera morbus may attack some
member of the home without warning.
