From tlie New York Herald. The most deceiving animal of the Maine woods is the lanky, hungry eyed and wholly disreputable bob cat, or deer cat” of the French Canadian voyageur, and the lynx rul'ous of the naturalists. It Is deceiving for the reason that It looks formidable and dangerous, when In fact It Is a cheap and common coward that will run away from the smallest dog and if it cannot escape by running. It will climb a tree and often sit among the limbs cowering for hours at a time. Though a near relative of the lynx cana densis, or loup cervier, It has many points of difference, chief among which are its cowardice, its fondness for carrion and Its mangy and uncleanly appearance. 1 lie Maine bob cat Is the hanger on of the cat race, the poor relation that comes in after the feast is finished and gnaws the bones and eats the crumbs, snarling and snapping all the time, and more dis agreeable when it has gorged itself than it is when almost famishing from hun ger. •’1 see that some of the papers are making a great scare about bob cats Just now,” said Game Warden Walter 1. Neal, who examines all the game which passes through Bangor in the open season. ••I have been watching the Bangor trains three months in the year for the last nine years and I have seen fewer bob cats and loup cerviers go west this season than in any previous year. As for loup cerviers, I do not think I have seen one for three or four years. Hast fall Mr. David Morrill, the oldest fur buyer In Maine told me that he believed the loup cerviers were extinct in Maine, as the price of the pelts had gone up from $2 to $7.50 in three years and in spite of the advance in price he had not bought a loup cervier skin for six years. No Complaint Made. "Since October 1, 1 have talked with twenty or more game wardens on duty in eastern Maine, and have seen perhaps one thousand hunters, every one of whom has spent from a W’eek to two months in the Maine forests, and as yet 1 have heard no complaint about the havoc wrought by bob cats or loup cerviers. "When a hunter from the city shoots a specimen of either species he usually takes it home to have it mounted as a sample of bis prowess, and If these crea tures had been one-tenth as plentiful as reported I should have seen more bodies in transit. I believe that there are not more than five hundred specimens of both species running wild in Maine to day. "If a hunter will come to my hotel and pay regular rates for his board." said Fred Fowler, proprietor of the Norcross House. Which is the starting point for all hunters who go up tlie west branch of Penobscot river, ‘T will agree to pay him $5 a head for every bob cat or loup cer vier he can shoot between now and spring. I have been roaming In the woods of Maine from Mattawamkeag to Katah din for the past forty years. "I know the map of Eastern Maine and most of the residents. Thousands of hunt ers and fishermen come to my hotel every year. If bob cats or loup cerviers were plentiful I should have heard of it. My offer of $5 a head for boh cats and loup cerviers holds open until the fishing sea son opens next May. Fact is. 1 want to earn some money during the dull sea son and take this way of doing it. Few Are Killed. "Yes, I know' about Dr. Patten of Am herst, getting a bounty of $2 a head put on wildcats by the legislature of 1897. In two years the state paid for less than 1000 animals, and half of these w'ere smug glcd across from New Brunswick. Six years later Frad Campbell of Cherry field, had a bounty of 25 cents a head placed on hedgehogs and secured an appropria tion of 11000 to foot the bills for two years. "Xnd what was the result? Why, in two years Maine paid for the claw's and noses of nearly 100,000 hedgehogs and near ly bankrupted several poor towns before they could get back the money they had paid out. 1 mention these two instances to show how the people of Maine will hunt for a small bounty If tiiere are any animals to hunt. "In fact, you can never tell how many breeds of animals there are In Maine woods until there Is a bounty offered. I suppose If there were a good prem ium placed upon unicorns and whang doodles somebody would make money shooting these creatures, though most of us think they do not exist.

Growers Able by Proper Diet to Make Fruit Improve on Nature. From the New York Sun. The biggest and best oranges are not grown on good soil. Fruit growers are finding out that they can improve on na ture when it comes to feeding up a tree. If they want to get the finest fruit they no longer pick out the rich, alluvial soils. Very fertile land produces citrus trees of j rank growth which often bear enbrmous crops; but the finest and highest priced j fruit grows on nearly sterile soil. This strange state of affairs Is thus cx- I plained: In fertile soils plant food is sel- i dom properly balanced. Neither is It i present in just the right condition for producing the best fruit. For some reason, too. it isn’t possible to influence fruit through the medium of a rich, fertile soil. It doesn't seem to be a good medium for chemical fertilizers, whereas a soil which is almost sterile makes the right base upon which to build up Ideal-conditions. Trees may be started j in It and then fed with just such chemi- I cal fertilizers. The old method produced coarse, thick skined oranges and often causekl disease in the trees. The Depart ment of Agriculture, in strongly advising the use of chemicals, gives the following j definite rules: To obtain a fruit with thin rind, use i nitrogen from inorganic sources in mod- | prate quantities, with considerable pot ash and lime. To sweeten-the fruit, use'' sulphate of ammonia in considerable abundance, decreasing the amount - of potash. To render the fruit more acid increase the amount of potash and use j nitrogen from organic sources, v if it is desired to increase the size of the fruit apply a comparatively heavy dres-! sing of nitr«.»g< n in sonv organic form and slightly deer cape the other elements. TMe bark, a serious malady, W in ad \ probability the result of overfeeding with nitrogenous manures from organic sourc es. These manures if used at all should bo applied with great caution. Foot rot, although not primarily due to improper methods of fertilization, is no doubt con siderably influenced by this cause. Insect diseases are also apparently influenced by the use of fertilizers, organic manures rendering the trees more liable to injury from this source than chemical fertili zers. CONVERT WHO COULDN’T PRAY. The One Flaw in His Supreme Relig ious Experience. The following anecdote occurs in Ku gehe Wood’s picturesque article on “The Old-Time Revival” in the March Every body’s: “They tell me t'he story of a man who went up forward night after night, night after night, through all the meeting. The last night found him still seeking. No one could make much out of him, but at this last meeting some one put his arms about him and pityingly said: ‘What’s the matter, my dear brother? Why is it you can't cpme through?’ “The consciousness that the harvest was past and the summer ended, the kindly sympathy—something, any way broke the man’s heart. ’Oh, I’m con verted all right, all right, I guess,’ tie sniffled, and then he broke into a regular, square-mouthed bawling spell. ‘Bub-but . . . ah-hoo-hoo-hoooooo! I Jist can’t niuke a prayer tit ter a daw-aw-awg!’ " Why don't you come here for a spring suit? It will be to your advantage. —Varley & Bauman, One-Price-Cloth, iers, Hatters and Furnishers. 1924, 1st Avenue.
