BIG CATCH OF FUR
The trade In Louisiana firs this sea.
son promises to he prosperous. Only a
sharp break in the market will keep
the product down to a point anywhere
near that of last season. Unfortu.
nately, there has alw iys been a sharp
decline, and the market is yet unCt
tied, with a downward tendeucy. Anla
yet the prices are much h igoer than
last year, and there are umore tappcrs
in the field, so that fur dealers pre.
dict that the catch will eqlual or exceued
the great catch of 1919. A sharp break
in the market a week or two ago, when
prices declined 25 per cent, caught
trappers, but most of the dealers, who
had anticipated something of the sort,
got from under in time. The manu
facturers of New Yor'k can make into
gal'rments. for the winter furs received
up to l)ecember 10, and New Orleans
dealer estimating their holdings at 7s
to market before that time, and so dis
posed of their holdings at remunerta
Trappers, however, believed prices
would still climb and most of them
held their catch, one New Orleans
dealer estimatini their holdings at 71
per cent of the season's catch. The de.
cline came with this stock still in their
hands, and they were compelled there.
fore to make the loss. After this sharp
decline there was still a disposition to
cut prices, it being said that New York
manufacturers, who make 75 per cent
of the fur garments of the country, had
met and declined to further pay the
high price prevailing. Since the mar.
ket has beea unsettled, with a some.
what downward tendency, but prices
are still much higher than last year,
and trappers in the field are active
and making fine catches. The princi:
pal marketable furs of Louisiana are
coon, muskrat and mink, all popular
furs, and New Orleans is the principal
coon fur center of the country. It is
a notable fact that Louisiana and Ar,
kansas contribute fully half of the coon
skins of the country, and these pelts
are much sought after by the manic
Louisiana trappers are acquainting
themselves with the provisions of the
amendment to the fur law which per.
mite them to ship their individual
catch out of the State upon paying in
advance the severance tax of 2 per
cent to the Conservation Department,
The value of skins naturally varies,
prime skins being worth several times
those of No. 4 grade, but from time
to time the Conservation Department
will fix the prices per fur on the basic
of a fair average, so that trappers
may know exactly what amount of tax
to pay on each of their shipments.,
Trappers are applying regularly for
tags for shipments, and it is evident
that much of the catch is being dis.
posed of outside t·he State, mainly in
St. Louis, but New Orleans dealers say
they have felt no effects of the outs
side shipments thus far, perhaps be.
cause the catch has been unusually
heavy, If the new law has affected
local receipts at all, say the local
dealers, the effect has been inappreolac

of this crustacean delicacy roW eating
their favorite shell fish, however, for

For canning and drying purposes, how*
