ONLY WEIGHED 60 POUNDS After Taking Tanlac Has Gained Thirty-five Pounds and Expects to Return to Home and Hus band Well and Happy. “About six weeks ago I left my home on our farm near Acworth, Ga., to come to my sister’s home here in Atlanta, and I left with only a shadow of hope of ever returning alive. “I left Acworth in a comfortable automobile, propped up on pillows, coming through the country. I had almost as much medicine as baggage —a big box full of all kinds that had been prescribed for me. 1 reached here very weak and with scarcely enough strength to walk to the door. This trouble from which I had suf fered so long and which I was told was pellagra, had reduced me to al most a shadow, as 1 only weighed .sixty pounds. “My brother-in-law, Mr. Battle, said, ‘Well, you have tried everything else with no relief, now I want you to lay aside your “drug shop” and take Tanlac.’ Well, he got it for me and I started on my first bottle that day. “When I had taken about half the first bottle I began to feel stronger and encouraged. I continued to take it and it is nothing short of marvel ous how I improved day by day. My appetite returned and my food seemed to nourish me and agree with me. My skin and complexion began clearing and I improved in every way possible until I am now a well woman, and when I say well I mean absolutely what I say. I want to tell the whole world that I thank God for Tanlac. “I weigh ninety-five pounds now and feel as well as I ever felt in ray life. I am going back to my husband and home on the little farm, five miles from Acworth, tomorrow, and won’t it be a joyful meeting, returning ab solutely well and happy —and w T on’t I tell everybody about what Tanlac has clone for me,” The above remarkable statement was made recently by Mrs. O.

In the United | States there are comparatively few i fanciers as yet, so that, though num bers of canaries are reared here, a large part of the stock is secured from abroad. More than three and one quarter millions of canaries have been Scotch Fancy Canary. brought into the United States during the last ten years, an average of more than 300,000 birds each year. Most of these have come from Germany, but some are imported from England. Canaries seem to thrive in any cli mate where not exposed to too severe weather conditions, and in spite of the long period they have been protected and held in captivity they are capable of enduring a surprising degree of cold when hardened to it. In England it is not unusual to find them in outdoor aviaries throughout the year. They seem able to establish themselves again lu a wild state under favorable conditions. In 1909, a brood of do mestic canaries was released on Mid way island, a small sandy islet in the Hawaiian group. By 1914 they had in creased until it was estimated that they numbered about 1,000. The actual origin of the canary as a cage bird is as obscure as is the early history of other domesticated ani mals. It seems probable that captive canaries were first secured from the Canary Islands, a group with which they have long been popularly associ ated. There are in the old world, however, two closely allied forms from whifh the domesticated canary may have come. One of these, the bird now recognized as the “wild canary,” is found in the Canary Islands (with the exception of the islands of Fuerte ventura and Lanzarote), Madeira, and the Azores. The other form, the serin finch, ranges through southern Eu rope and northern Africa, extending eastward into Palestine and Asia Mi- Belgian Fancy Canary. nor. In a wild state these two forms are very similar in color and to a no vice are hardly distinguishable. Variation among domesticated cana ries began early, as Hernandez, in 1587, speaks of the canary as wholly yellow in color save for the tips of the wings. The various forms have had their origin In distinct geographic areas, and though some are almost ex tinct at present, all at one time or another have had a devoted following of fanciers. At present at least 14 dis tinct strains, with a large number of varieties, are known.

LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI marily for Its song, and from It prob ably came the roller, or song canary, a great favorite In Germany and more recently, in England. In rearing song canaries attempt Is made to produce males with clear, soft, pleasing songs with long rolls or trills, and no atten tion whatever is paid to other charac teristics. These birds, therefore, are usually nondescript as regards color and appearance, but care is taken in mating to secure males that are good singers and females from good stock. The young birds when fledged are put in rooms with birds noted for their soft song, and here, through imitation, they develop their own vocal powers. Care ful watch is kept over them, and any bird developing harsh notes is removed at once to prevent his corrupting the purity of tone in the song of his broth ers. A mechanical Instrument known as a bird organ, that produces liquid trills, is frequently utilized in train ing, usually when the adult birds are silent during molt. Ordinarily the room where these birds are kept is darkened, and frequently the cages containing the young birds are screened with cloth to lessen a tend ency to objectionable loudness of song. In six months oi less, their education completed, these songsters may be sold or in their turn utilized in train ing others still younger. It is com mon to teach these birds some simple strain or air. through its constant rep etition by whistling or by means of an instrument. Well-trained birds bring high prices, and a fair number of these find their way each year into this country. In the great class of exhibition birds perhaps none is more striking than the Belgian canary. Formerly known as ''the “king of the fancy,” it was reared extensively in Belgium, but of late years its popularity has been on the decline. In 1911 it was said that few purebred Belgians were to be found, and under present war conditions it may never recover its own. The typi cal Belgian canary is a large bird with a small head, long, slender neck, large shoulders, and a long, tapering body. It is primarily a bird of “position.” When examined It bops upon a perch and throwing its shoulders up brings the head down well below their level. The back and tall form a perpendicu lar line and the feet are held close to gether. Another bird of position is the Scotch fancy canary. This variety re sembles the Belgian, but when in po- Diagram of Foot of Canary With Overgrown Claws. —A Terminal Blood Vessel.—Point at Which Claw May Be Trimmed Without Injury. sition throws the tail in under the perch until its outline in profile is al most a semicircle. Another well-marked variety is the cinnamon canary, one of the earliest forms to appear, but one whose origin is wholly unknown. Its true color is a dun or dull brown that has been lik ened to cinnamon. In exhibition birds the color is usually intensified by color feeding. In addition to the body color the cinnamon canary is peculiar in possessing red or pink eyes, a char acter that denotes cinnamon blood even In a yellow or buff bird. The cin namon inheritance is transmitted only by the male; young reared from a cin namon mother and a male of any oth er form lacking cinnamon blood never show signs of their cinnamon parent age. Among the old-established varieties that now are in decadence none is more striking than the lizard canary. Lizard canaries are known as gold or silver according as the body color is yellow or silvery gray. The wings and tail are black and the back is spangled with numerous somewhat triangular black spots. The crown in purebred birds is unspotted and light in color. The crested canary is another unus ual form, with a long crest extending down around the head below the level of the eyes. The frill or Dutch frill canary is a large bird with long curl ing feathers. The Lancashire is the largest of known varieties of the ca nary, standing head and shoulders above all others. These “giant” ca naries may be crested or smooth head ed. Other forms that may be men tioned are the border fancy, a small bird, and the Norwich, or Norwich plain head, from which come many of the common canaries.

Small pockets for valuables, intend ed to be fastened to linings of shoes, have been patented. number of varieties of canaries enu merated covers the entire field. For each of the main forms there are al most endless groups or divisions that have been developed on color peculiar ities. To obtain purebred birds re quires constant care and supervision, and with any slackness of method a host of mongrels appear. Interbreed ing between the various forms, differ ing so widely in color, results in rever sion to the original type, which was a spotted or striped greenish bird, cer tain proof of the common origin of all. That the color of canaries may be deepened or intensified by certain col or foods given during the molt is well j known and has attracted much inter est. Turmeric, marigold flowers, saf fron. cochineal, annatto, port wine, I mustard seed and other agents rich in natural color are often used for this I purpose, but it is doubtful whether they exert any real influence. So far as known all successful color foods have red pepper as a base. For a long I time methods of preparing and feeding Crested Canary. them were kept secret, but now they are outlined in many manuals on ca nary keeping. A standard color food may be pre pared as follows: To the ordinary egg food (one hard-boiled egg chopped tine with an equal bulk of bread crumbs or unsalted cracker crumbs) add a teaspoonful of ground sweet red pepper. Mix until the food shows an even reddish tint throughout. Each bird to be experimented upon should receive one small teaspoonful daily. The quantity of pepper is increased gradually, until two heaping teaspoon fuls are used. Addition of a little brown sugar and a few drops of pure olive oil is beneficial, and a small quantity of hot red pepper gives a bet ter flavor. The food should be pre pared fresh each day. In mixing, al lowance must be made for variation in the size of eggs used. In color feeding some canary breeders increase the proportion of sweet red pepper un til four teaspoonfuls ae added to the usual quantity of egg food. Half a teaspoonful of this concentrated food is allowed each bird. This method may be used during a short, quick molt. Care of Feet and Bill. Asa canary grows old it will be noticed that its claws get long and catch on the perches and wires as it i hops about the cage. In a state of na ture the activities of the bird as it moves about the ground or among twigs and limbs keep the claws prop erly worn down. Confined in a cage, the canary is less active, and while the rate of growth of the claws re mains the same they are subject to much less abrasion. It is necessary, therefore, to trim them with a pair of sharp scissors every few months. It is important to watch the condition Lizard Canary. of the claws carefully, as by catching they may cause a broken leg. In each claw a slender blood vessel ex tends well down toward the tip. This may be seen on close examination through the transparent sheath of the claw. In trimming cut well beyond this canal and take special care not to break the leg while handling the bird. In cage birds the horny covering of the bill, as well as the claws, some times becomes distorted through growth without sufficient wear. The tips of the mandibles may be pared down with a sharp knife, but care must be taken not to cut deep enough to reach the quick. Caught in a Trap.
