One of the curious elevelopmeots
of trade in Southern California and
Arizona is the traffic in tarinlulas
aud their nests. It is an turircly
new avenue of trade, and to Leo
Fleishman, of Los Angeles, seems
itt belong the honor of discovery
and development. He began a
short time since lo gather their c -
nous and ingeni usly ontrived
nests for relic hinder and curiosity
seekers, and as the trade ii.c a-ed,
he began the capture and preserva
tion in a stale of nature of tlie t:ir

jecting into the animal arsenic in a
considerable quantity. This has tl'e
effect of preserving the tiranluli
acd destroying all its pfiison, aud it
