ZEBRA TESTING SCHEME Rarest Specimens Imported For Experimental Purposes. PROPERTY OF A WEALTHY BAHKEB t ) Warner M. Van \orden Will Try to Verify Heredity Theories of Pro^ feasor Errart of Edinburgh University?Special Home Being Planned For the Valnable Animals. : Vying with the Duke of Bedford, one of the richest peers of England, whose . great estate near London contains blue blooded prize stock as well k as wild > animals of rare species, Warner M. Van Norden, the banker, has bought for his fine stock farm at Rye, N. Y., ' IIV0 zeoras rep reseating me laicat Imens of the family, says the New York World, t Two zebras of the Bohlmii class . came from the South African mountain fastnesses Just north of the Transvaal Another came from the dark country of Abyssinia. This one Is said to be the rarest specimen in captivity and cost Mr. Van Norden $5,000. The cost of the five zebras, Including that of . bringing them from their faraway homes, will be around $25,000. Three 2 are already installed in Mr. Van Nor' den's stables. The other two will be , delivered early next spring, r Matching the handsome colonial home of New York's first chief justice, John s Jay, which Mr. Van Norden purchased about a year ago, a home for the valua" ble animals is being planned by Architect Frank Rooke. Everything that will conform to the habitat and neces. sities of the animals will be installed j for their health and comfort. There will be a large paddock, with a drlnk} lng pool in the center. All the buildings will be steam heated and the tem perature regulated hourly. I Mr. Van Norden's love of fine stock Is not the motive for his purchase of the zebras. He secured them for pure. i?' ATiuirtmonhil nnrnosea. i Ijr ducuuuv v?w > Carrying out the theories of W. Ewart, * professor of natural history In Edinburgh university, he will try to sub, stantlate certain theories of heredity. | The zebras are the most perfectly striped ever seen in the United States. - of purest white, with glossy black > bands in unbroken lines covering the entire body. v The common zebras seen ' In circus parades and menageries, In I contrast to the blue blooded species, f ore of a yellowish brown, with broken I bands of black, extending only part way around the body, with little or no > markings on the legs and head. Professor Ewart contends that the , product of a horse and a zebra will re. semble in color some distinct common ancestor and neither of the natural j parents. The specimen .Mr. Van Norden se? cured from Abyssinia Is as rare an ad vent In the United States as a south r sea islander would be in the north pole. t It has long been coveted by the man| agement of zoological collections all . over the world. Dr. Hornaday of the ; Bronx Zoological gardens has long ' wished to add one or more to their 6 growing collection of rare exhibits. It . was only procured after an expedition sent out by Hagenback of Hamburg 5 had spent some montns m amsen i search and perilous adventure, i Because of its secluded .haunts, often times in the most dangerous mountain heights, and because of its cunning. ' ?swiftness and agility it is one of the ' most difficult animals to capture. It is the largest and handsomest of the spef cles and moreover Is said to be almost i extinct For this reason Mr. Van Norden will ' experiment In raising some In the Unitj. ed States, and, although he has not promised, he may bring joy to the I hearts of the "zoo" collectors who have t been longing to possess so great an animal rarity, i Mr. Van Norden's zebras are mere * babes, being only six years old and as r frisky as young colts, for, as Mr. Van Norden explained, the life of a zebra is more than twice that of a horse, the age of fifty years frequently being at. talned. The animals were kept by Hagenback in Hamburg for a few months to domesticate them, and Mr. Van Norden has been assured that they are r harness broken. Mr. Van Norden is . one of the few rich men of New York " who do not go in for automobiles. He prefers good horses, but his love for driving has not yet influenced him to risk his life behind a harnessed pair of - frisky zebras. t The zebras captured by the Hagen I back expedition nave oeen amaeu w tween Mr. Van Norden and the Duke of Bedford. The latter received four i choice specimens. The Hew Dictator of Chin*. , The most powerful individual in China today Is Yuan Shi Kai, the viceroy | of Tientsin, says Leslie's Weekly. is virtually the dictator of the empire,' having as his ally the old empress dowager. No decree is issued from PeI king without his approval. He is credi ited with having caused the Chinese - government to issue the recent antiopium decree. Yuan is a man of great force of character and a believer in progress. He has taken many steps to modernize his country. Numerous attempts have been made to assassinate him. It Is hoped that through his efforts China will be transformed into a progressive land. The One Pure Food. The health commissioner of Chicago "has announced, according to the Milwaukee Sentinel, that if the provisions of the pure food law are rigorously carried out boiled rice will be the only food that can be legally sold. | ipy:1: - .
