Uvent In New York
That Net York City is one of the
largest consumers of muskrats IIaJ
food Is not known to most patrons
of the game dealers Chicago which
Is Its only rival as eater ot musk
rats finds room for countless barrels I
of swamp rabbit caught along the
famous marshes on Lake Michigan
New Yorks muskrats come from
Chesapeake nay for the most part
The trade Is a large one There are
shipping points on the bay from
which 80000 muskrat pelts are sent
yearly to fur dealers The car
casses of twothirds of these animals
are barreled and sent by steamer to
Ilaltlmoro commission merchants
A barrel holds about 200 musk
rat carcasses They are worth to
the shipper from 6 to 10 a barrel
and the trappers find that 4t pays to
save the meat
The meat of the muskrat Is very
dark Its flavor Is as delicate as a
rabbits During the trapping sea
son muskrat flesh Is on sale In all
of the butcher shops along the east
ern shore especially at Cambridge
Chrisfleld and other water towns
The butchers buy It frota the trap
pers paying from twoto four cents
a carcass The rats are then sold
to town I people at the uniform price
of four for a quarter
The swamp rabbits or black
ducks are served at all of the
cheap hotels and lodging houses
once or twice a week Sometime
they are boiled sometimes fried and
sometimes baked Frequently tho
patrons of the houses do not know
what they are cstlng New York
