The meat of the Runner is of su

and excellent flavor. Hotels and res

The eggs are In good demand also.
In winter when eggs are high the In
dian Runner Is "on the job." Any
enterprising person can work up a
trade among hotels and restaurants
that should prove highly profitable.
There is no great danger of strong
competition, as comparatively few
poultry raisers have taken up this
branch of the industry, notwithstand
iag the fact that nearly all kinds of
poultry products are bringlng un
hesrd-ot prices in the open market.
Duck culture, in the past, has been
more or less neglected, owing to the
general belief that ducks cannot be
eucesethly raised without a stream
or pond of water. The fact is. how
ever, that the Indian Runner requires

are small feeders as compared with
other ducks.
In summer, the Indian Runner,
when given free range, will find the
greater part of his living in the fields.
|.ut, of course, when being fattened
for market, they need some grain. It
would be well to say right here that
for best results the grain should be
either ground or cooked.
A great many would-be duck rais
ers fail because they insist upon feed
ing the duck, both old and young,

The lmatlured birds can get along.
but the young ones most certainly
cannot. Ion't try to raise ducklings
on whole wh.eat, cracked corn and
"chick feed" They simply cannot
digest it. About the only kind of grit
that a young duck will eat is sand,
and whole or cracked grain requires
something sharper than sand to grind
it.
Those who have Indian Runner
duck would do well to keep them over
winter and see what they will do to
ward keeping the egg basket filled
when biddy is on a strike. Begin by
culling out all the surplus drakes and
undersized specimens. It is not a
good plan to keep closely related
birds. One drake for every seven or
eight ducks is about right.
Drakes may be kept for seven
years, but ducks will not lay so well
when of that age. Few duck raisers
care to keep old drakes unless they
happen to be high-priced birds.
In many sections, Indian Runner
ducks are so scarce that food speci
mens bring almost any price asked.
A house 15x20 feet, with a yard at
tached will be large enough for 35 or
40 ducks to stay in at night, and dur
ing the cold days in winter.
If there is no suitable house on the
place a duck house can be built at
small cost. Rough lumber may be
used for the floor and siding. The
rafters, plates and posts may be made
of poles cut in the wood. Any kind
of roof that will turn water will an
swer.
If the house Is to be used for your
ducks during the spring and summer
months, there should be two large
doors. One at each end of the house.
or a door on one end and a window
at the other. Some duck houses are
built with the entire south side open.
Small mesh poultry netting is nailed
to the posts, and a heavy curtain is
attached inside. The curtain is to be
used in cold weather. It will some
times be necessary to nail or tack the
curtain to the floor and also at the
sides.
Keep plenty of straw on the floor.
If it is several inches deep, it need not
be renewed every day. We take a
pitchfork and turn it, or remove that
which is badly soiled. It is best to
keep everything as clean as possible.
then there is less danger of disease.
rucks are not troubled with lice; and,
as a rule, they are very healthy.
Their food should consist of both
raw and cooked vegetables, cornmeal.
bran, beef scrap. stem-cat clover, etc.
The ground grain should be moistened
with milk or water.

A bRAZLuN FOREST
ff7 OYAGING up the Amazon on an
ocean going steamer, one is al
ways far above the surface of
the water, one is always hur
rying rather noisily on, and so
necessarily but very little of the lift
of the great river is seen. Passing
through the narrows above Para, the
forests can almost be touched on eith
er side of the steamer, but after that
one shore is always very distant.
There is something mysterious
about the river; canoes laden with for
est produce, a brightly plumaged
maccaw perched on their prow, come
smoothly to the town; river steamers
with their burden of evil smelling rtu
ber, a few brilliant orchids tied to
the wheelhouse, make fast to the
wharves, and always there is that
sense of the unknown, the bright, the
elusive. A desire to overcome this
feeling of remoteness, writes a corre
spondent of the London Times, de
termined me to embark in a canoe
and Journey out on the yellow waters
of the Amazon and through dim for
est hung channels to the black wa
ters and white sand strewn beaches of
the Rio Negro.
The dimculties I encountered were
immense All my Brasilian friends
warned me of the dangers and hard
ships of such a voyage, and I found
that prohibitive prices were asked
for the hire of even the most unsuit
able craft. Eventually I secured a
boat, and built a tolda or hood over
one end, took my provisions on board,
hoisted a sail and set off. My crew
consisted of a Portuguese boatman
and a Japanese.
Peers of the River Amason.
bailing slowly down the river, the
boat kept very close to the bank and
slid along noiselessly. As the day
wore on the wind died down and the
heat became intense A black fly
ealled motuca appeared in great sum
bhers and inflicted painful bites. We
leaded to light a are and cook lunch.
Small, dry sponges bung is the
branches of the shrubs that had been
long submerged, yellow butterlies
were drinking in companies of 60 or
more at little pool left on the slop
lag shore Huge yellow and black
hornets came around us and at first
frightened us, but we soon learned to
look on them as friends when we
found it was the motuea fles that
they were hunting, not us. Ofter hard
ly had a motuca settled when it was
pounced upon and borne off.
All insect pests were said to be far
worse on white water rivers than on
black water ones, so we hastened to
leave the Amason, so as if possible
to sleep that night on the shores of
one of the lakes lying between that
river and the Rio Negro. A breeze
sprung up and took us up the river
slowly enedsh, as the current com
ing down was very strong, but when
we turned up a stream leading to the
Rio Negro our progress ceased, the
sail was lowered and we took out the
oars
It proved to be very hot work. Shut
in by the immense forest trees, no
breath of wind came to us, and we
were very happy to come to a small
lake with a place on its shores free
from brushwood on which we could
camp. My companions slung their
hbammocks from branches of trees,
carefully arranging their mosquito
nets to protect them at night A lit
Ute way from them, a yard from the
water's edge, I placed my mattress
and cased it in with a mosquito net
on poles cut from the forest. We
then strolled off in search at the un

wide leaves of the wild banana and
the frequent palmns give a very tropi

few; occasionally a large bird will ut

monkeys will chatter as they swing
through the creepers overhead. Bril

The little footprints of cutlas and

made by the plates of both croco
diles' and turtles' armor occur nearer

trees, and nearly all inflict painful
bites, and there are several kinds of
wasps and bees, which either suspend
their nests from twigs or else build
in rolled up leaves; all would seem to
be the guardians of orchids and to do
their utmost to repel the despoiler.

and we cooked a supply of curry and
rice, and had as dessert a plentiful
supply of passion fruit.
It was six o'clock and darkness was
falling. I made haste to bathe at the
brink of the river and then to get un
der my mosquito curtains. And not a
moment too soon. As the light faded
with a soft suddenness of the equa
torial regions, insect life emerged for
Its nocturnal loves and feastings, its
dances, music, flights and battles. And
for many of these revels blood, and
especially human blood, is a longed
for prize. If an incautious hand of a
restless foot were pressed against the
curtain for a moment, a cloud of mos
quitoes immediately settled on it and
drove their relentless trunks into the
veins.
No European who has not himself
seen them could credit the myriads of
mosquitoes which haunt these forest
streams, and as the few inhabitants of
these regions are all suffering from
malaria, great care has to be taken.
The noises that all these Insects made

sound, now becoming intensely shrill.
now dying away to comarative still
ness. My companions had fallen
asleep in their hammocks; from the
river were heard only faint rippling
sounds, and I composed myself for
sleep. Never was there a greater
delusion, It was indeed a nult blanche.
Mysterious scamperings came from
the edge of the forest above me; a
great splash came from the river and
close at hand something rose, sighed,
moaned and sank. Bats squeaked and
blundered against my nets, creeping
things left the river and scuttled
over the sand. It was too dark to see
anything; the sound of all this un
known activity had a curious effect
on the nerves and vivid stories of
- -eat snakes, of jaguars and croco
diles came to the mind.
