BEGINNING OF OSTRICH FARMS
Oomeatl«
Atom of the Greet Birds
Was First Onderiaken hy Capo
Colony Farmen,
Fifty years ago, the domestication
of the ostrich was, an idea scouted by
most of the zoologists who had given
time and thought to the subject. The
young, it was bélieved, could not be
raised in a state of captivity. The
great demand for ostrich feathers
was then met by hunting and hilling
wild birds, and there were indirations
t hat the species would soon become ex
tinct. But in the early sixties, a
French scientist named Gosse issued a
pamphlet in which he argued that the
domestication of the ostrich was feas
ible and practicable, and not long after
wards a brood of ostriches was reared
in the city of Algiers, says Success.
Gosse's pamphlet and news of the ex
periment in Algiers became fairailiar
to two farmers iu Cape Colony, who
determined to undertake the domesti
cation of ostriches in South Africa. Be
ginn'ng with two birds, which they
caught and placed in an inclosure, in
a twelvemonth they had a brood of
■filch marked the birth of a new
industry which has played a potential
part, in the development and commerce
of a vast region. Barge tracts of land
in South Africa, which could not be
profitably used for any other purpose,
are now devoted to this business, and
feathers to the value of $6.000,000,
f rom nearly 400,000 domesticated birds,
are now annually sent abroad from
Cape Colony.
