E, N Car ter, superintendent of the Vermont d. vision of tho 1'nlted Stales bureau of fisheries, went to West Milton Tuesdny, looked tho situation over and mude nr- i r"ngements for c-.rr!iu on experimen tal sturgeon work nt the mouth of the Lamoille river, and C', government boat and men have gcu.e tliero for that pur pose. If ."uccessf'il, the operations will last about three weeks Sturgeon propagation is purely experi mental with the government, very little work In that line having been attempted as yet. Germany, which is well advanced In fish culture, Is still experimenting with tho sturgeon. A few sturgeon como up Mlsslsquol river and 12 years ago a male and a female sturgeon were nrvt dently captured durintr the river pike perch work nnd Livingstone Stone, then Ir charge of the government, work nnd the oldest nnd most experienced fish cul ttrlst in the service, on hl own respon sibility undertook sturgeon propagation, but was only partlalh successful. The Lake Champlnln sturgeon weigh from 7.1 pounds up to 1 T r. pounds, tak ing two or three men to handle them. Much difficulty was experienced In ticking tho spawn and Mr Stnno or iginated what ho called a "Mrnrjrht Jacket," a wooden box to hold the fish. It Is said the male and female stur gon run up the Lamoille river m largo numbers about this time of year and acting under orders from the bu reau of fnsherles nt Washington, Su perintendent Carter Is to see what can be done In this line of fish culture. II will personally look after the work, assisted by W. P. Sauerhoff, a cultur Ist of 30 years' experience front tho cei trnl station nt Washington. D C. As sturgeon eggs hatch in about four days, the propagation operations will bo carried on at West Milton, where the fish are captured, a port able Held station being set up for the purpose. It rrquvros about 20 davs to hatch pike-perch, according to the temperature of tho water It takes one hundred days to hatch brook trout under the new management wl'l appea" the first week in June.
