to .supply the trado the farm whs htartod
about four-oars ago, nt llobokeu, by
Mr. Charles' l'.eiuhc.
There wero only six birds on tho
farm, and for a whiiV they thrifod very
well, but Middcnly tlm birds began to
fall sick, and in a blion tium all of thorn
wore dead. Tlmy wore dissected, nnd
it was found thai; they. had gained fat
rapidly, but not 0lren;tli. . Dr. Prolhre
was found Ihc other clay aboard the
.steamship llonox, now lying in Ea.it
river, and was MsU-d by m'; reporter
ubout hi.s birds.
"Wo arrived front Buenos A.viWruif
Dr. Prothrf, with twenty-two oslrltlies
on board. Tlicse birds are a part of n
largo cargo recently shipped by 1110 from
thu southern part of Africa to Buenos
Ayrea. They are nil about eight years
old. Some of them Imvu bred, ami oth
ers arc now read; to blued, but tho cold
weather will wtop them from doing- so.
You probably want to know'why lliave
brought the birds to this country, I will
lull uui. 1 have large o.-.trit;) farms in
Buenos Ayres, and I have boon extens
ively exporting ostrich feathers from
there. The birds there are all brought
from Africa. Thu idea now is to dart
a s'nuilav farm bcru in thu United Stales.
I will shortly go through the Southern
States, and select the nitc for 11 farm.
The birds can live here iu tiny place
where- temperature does not fall b dcg.
below the freezing point. Thu feathers
are now sent from Africa, and, after 2U
percent, tariff is paid, there is still a
good profit ; so you can tee what prolit
there will be if wo tan raise tho birds.
I think too, that tho birds will multiply
faster hero tli.t;i iu South Africa, for
there ti drought frequently kills three
quarters of one's stock, f have known
ears there when not one drop of rain
lias fallen during an entire twelve
mouths. Food is abo very1 scarce in
South Africa. Mr. Baker, United Statet
Consul rt Buenos Ay res, wuthe lirst
person who gave mo the idea Of starting
an American ostrich farm. If I am suc
cessful I will start extensive farms and
will guarantee cheaper prices and much
more elegant feathers than aro now seen
on ladies hats on Broadway."
What is one of your ostriches worth?"
asked the reporter.
"I value them al.l,60O each. They
aro very dear, but their feathers are of a
much liucr kind than any in Now York.
Feathers in genoral use here eomo from
Barbary birds iu tho northern part ol
'How often do you pluck tho birds'
"Every .even months we cttt feather
and allow quills to grow for t bout a
month longer. Whit feathers are worth
about IT.') a pound."
'What do you feed the birds on?"
"Generally wc give them grain and
grass. If tho weather is not too cold, 1
see no reason why the farms should not
bo started hero. All the birds want is n
place to run in and somo bones, small
stones and grass to foed 011. The cost
of keeping them is littlo or nothing."
Dr. l'rothrc further states that he
would start tho farm in New York, tbul
that ho expected in a few years there
would be many farms In tho South, and
that on account of the high prices of rent
hero he would be tinableto compete with
thotu. Sew York Herald.

The Rev. Mr. Twitchell, of Hartford,
tells this littlo story as illustrative of tho
modesty of tho author, Mr. IIowclls:
Tho dominie said that they were once
traveling in tho same car 011 an eastern
railroad, when a bright young girl came
in, sat down beside Howolls utid began
to chatter. "We have been taking a
summer trip," she said, "and we havo
adopted 'TheirWodding Journey,' (one
of Howell's books) for our guide-book.
Wo havo boon to all the places men
tioned, aud havo been delighted at all
points. Oh! how I would Tike to know
the author! Did you ever nee him?"
Howells, who is a bashful man, had
lo acknowledge, under the heavy rat
tling lire, that lie had "seen" him; but

with reference to the tastes or needs of

An excellent present for a child is a

a work-box. Any one of these
gifts will bo of lasting utility, some of
them can bo so shared with others that

The Mistletoe Bough in New York,
During tho past few yenrs an attempt
has boon annually made to Introduce
tho mistlotoo into'private houses in New
York at Christmas, but, hitherto, with
out much success. It has to travel too
far before reaching its destination, and
has -lost all its freshness and boauty.
Not that tho mistletoe is, in itself, a pe
culiarly attract ivo plant. Its chief
eh arm is that it i aupposod to confor
upon young peoplo tho privilege of kiss
ing each other under it; but, as a fiow-er-doalor
of groat experienco, socially
and from a horticultural point of view,

A Heartless Fatbir.
"Don't tako my Kismass" mouoy, pa
pa," tearfully pleaded a little 3-year-old
of Montreal the other day. Her father
was onco counted among the respecta
ble residents of the city, says tho 0
zdtc, but whilo his daughter piteously
cried, he heartlessly abstracted from the
little tin bank her first Christmas sav
ings of '.'6 cents. The bank was a pres
ent from a relative. In gleeful antici
pation of all the uice things they wonld
purchase by-and-bye, tho little miss reg
ularly dropped thoreiu the small coins
as she got them, itutil it seemed to her
the bank continued untold wealth. Her
father was generally kind and loving.
But uow he listened to his child's heart
breaking appeal w ith indifference, and
an hour later his wifo found him at tho
