"What an Importer of Animals Snya About the Gront blrda. New Yotk KvcnliiR I'oit. Mr. Charloslloicho , the well-known importer of niiinwls , referring to the article on ostrich fanning \vliicli nn- poured n few days ago in The Evening Post , said this morning that while ho had no doubt that there waa n good fluid for the business in this country , a first experimentiu breeding oatricluia . which ho made soiuo years ago had buon disappointing , llo imported six cliicka in 1875 from Kiibm , Africa , expecting to kcop them until full- grown when they would bo valuable for show purposes. As theynro birds which rcquiro a good deal of room , it was easier to transport thorn when young than when they attain full size. The six : were taken to llobokon whuu about four months old , and seemed tc thrive well ; they ate voraciously what ever was ollorod to them - oven stones as big as n mnn's list , nails , oyster shells , etc. They grow BO fust tliat the experiment was considered n highly successful ono until 0110 nftei another they began to die from some mysterious cause which was not dis covered until their bodies were dis' sccted. It was then found that iimny of their bouoa were broken , and that the rich food , and too much of it , had caused them to bccomo heavy and fat before the bones were largo onougl to support the weight of their bodies , The bone structure had not kept paci with the llesh. The food had beer too rich. At present there are only foui ostriches in the country. Barnaul re ceived two a few weeks ago , and tin Cincinnati Zoological garden has hiu ono for a number ot years. At pros out Mr. Roicho has two men in Nubii and twc in Cape Town on the lookou for some ostriches to fill an order fo : a dozen from Itanium. The mothoi of catching them at present is as fol lows : The agent engages half-a-dozoi hunters , to whom ho pays no wage but whoso expenses ho defrays Mounted on good horses , these moi track a herd of ostriches , who ari found in the desert usually feeding 01 wild melons growing in the sand , amen on a bean known to the natives a durah. The herds vary in number from fifteen to fifty adults , each mal bird having in subjection soveni fomalus. When the huntsmen appea the whole herd takes to flight , bu owing to the habit of running in cir clcs a good horseman can make shor work of the swiftest ostrich. Th adults are-allot or strangled and th chicks are tied by the legs and carriei oft' The feathers of the old birds bp long to the huntsmen , who are paii in this way for the work. Instead o pulling out the feathers of the deal birds the natives skin the birds , am saltine the hides with areenic and salt to prevent decomposition , send then to London in that state. The youni birds are then fed with any kind o grain and sent to Germany , which i the great market for wild animals o all kinds. In hunting the birds manyUeggs ar sometimes found , which during th expedition in the desert are eaten b the natives , one egg weighing near ! "three pounds. The eggs in the nes are placed upright and usually covere with sand , the heat of the sun aidin the incubation during the day whil the bird sits on them at night. Aroun each nest is a circle of eggs which ar jiot hatched , but serve as food for th chicks when they leave the shell. Ostrich hunting is apt to bo a dar gerous business to anyone not familir with their modes of attack. Ono c Mr. Reicho'a white agents was killo last year by an ostrich which literal ! ripped the man open with its powei ful claws. When transportin ostriches in ships they are kept i separate cases. Inexperienced animi dealers have sometimes allowe ostriches with other animals , such s goats and deer , the ostrich ending b killing its companions ; And ostrich * have'been ' known to kill hyenas an other ifierco beasts which , getting on of their cages , attacked them. As to the ago to which .an ostric can live in this country , it is imposs bio to form any opinion. The fe' ' with which we have had any experience once have been caged up and take from place to place with shows , a aoi of life not conducive to longovitj Mr. Releho doubts whether the ostric will thrive in any state north of th snow line. The dry plains of Texa would probably bo the most favorabl breeding ground. As wo pay 30 pe cent , duty on the feathers , thor would bo a largo profit here if th birds could be bred with oven model ate success. The prices for youn birds are much lower , according t 'JMr. Reiche , than those mentioned i 'Tho Evening Post. Birds from tlirc or four months old can he brougl ; hero from Nubia at a cost of aboi $300 apicco and pay a fair profit. Egan/'tbeTerror. " Albany Journal. Quietly swinging a tromendou fllodgo-hammor under the rude shuds u the west end of the new capitol grounds there hiw boon at work this winter , man whoso endurance and skill i sparring rank him among the foromos exponents of the "manly art" in tin country. Qia name is "Dick" Egar and ono glance at his proportions convinced vincod our reporter ho is , indeed , a his companions style him , "a terror. No formal stops have yet been takoi ia the matter , hut it is perfectly wol understood that , Ejrun intends , in short time , to clulluiigo John Sulliva : for the championship , and there i abundant reason for believing tha h < > / ' ' make tilings lively for th 13 u.i Boy. " "V. ' J not H" . _ nnfc of niv to d oo.idtiug of his own prowess , bu ho has perfect confidence in himself just tbo same. Some little time ago it will bo remembered , Sullivan appeared poared in Troy one evening to give ai exhibition of his skill. Althougl "Dick" is at work on the stato-houao ho has boon living in uur sister city and ho was present as a spectator a the performance in question. Sulli van was easily "cock of the loft. " fl cleaned out every man who appearei against him on the stage , and final ! ; it was announced by his backers tha there was $50 in greenbacks doposito < with the management , to bo liandoc ever to any individual who woulc stand up for just five minutes in fron of tlio bakod-beans pugilist. Egan who had not intended to tnko any ao part in tljo exhibition , could no sit quietly in his place and see this locality bullied. Ho remembered that John 0. Hocnmi , once the acknowl edged champion of the world , who arovo Sayrcs out of the ring in I860 , although blinded for the time in both eyes , was born near Troy , and ho de termined to maintain the honor of Ilium and thclEmpiro stato. Advancing from behind the wings , "Dick" Egan , "tho Terror , " ap peared before the footlights and an nounced that ho was ready to conti for the prize. There was n moment of breathless suspense ; but nnxioty w.is quickly relieved , to give place to indignation. Sullivan took ono hasty glance at the gigantic muscles of the low comer , and immediately declared hat it might "cause unpleasantness" f ho should continue the entertain- uont. Euan allowed that ho "meant business1 at least to the extent oi § 50 , but it was no use. The pride of Ueacon hill did not dare to cope with lis doughty challenger. A similar itoty might bo related oi one of the jullius mnoiit ! now capitol stone-cut ters. Ono of this class in particular , who is n prominent member of tin Albany "Grant club , " recently spoke [ lisparagingly in public of Egan'i abilities , but no sooner did "tho Tor ror" take him to task than the fcllov ivilted , and took everything back , declaring claring that ho wouldn't light , uudoi any circumstances , even with a child as ho disapproved of the practice , 01 principle. Thus "Dick" has had Jni opportunity to try his niottlo upoi any of his own race , and has boon ob jiged to content himself with sledge : iammors and sand-bags. Many pleasing incidents are rolatot of "tho Terror's" achievements ii athletics , but some of them are so remarkable markablo as to tax credulity. IIo ii said to strike a massive blow with hii heavy hammer , and then stop the re bound instantly while in mid-air.

The OMoat Biscuit In America , Hcnretita ( ToShield. . Capt. E. M. Simmons returned las Friday from an extended and pleasan visit to his old homo near Jackson Tonn. He brought back with him ; relic of the past in the shape of th "oldest biscuit in America. " It wa made for him by R. A.

For the past two years the publisl ; era of this paper have given to th fcubscribers of THE WEEKLY BEE th best line of premiums as inducement to subscription which have ever boo offered by any newspaper in the com try. The plan has proved a success It has given universal satisfaction t the patrons of the paper , and lias it creased the subscription list to a d < greo far above the expectations of il publishers. Many patrons of THE DAILY BE have asked why wo do not oiler thei the same inducements held out to sitl scribers of THE WEEKLY BHE. In r sponso to the inquiry wo make tli following offer : Each subscriber f THE DAILY BEE who pays hia arreai of subscription and remits pro-pa ] mont for six months and every no subscriber who remits pro-paymor for six months will bo entitled to on of tlio premiums mentioned in oi list. These premiums will be dii tribuiotl in the same impartial mainer nor which marked our first and secon distributions. This scheme was first devised i collect subscriptions in arrears froi patrons of TUB WEEKLY BEE. Its su < cess exceeded our expectations. W have now no back collections on ou weekly edition , have established th prs ' .yTiHiit jroin , ipitlr.i.ilat ! ou circulation and correspondingly en hanced the value of our advertimn space. A number of subscribers t TJIK DAILY BEE are now in arrears and if by an extension of the earn plan wo can induce them to pay th amount duo us , wo can well afford t make this liberal ollor. By tlii means wo hope to still further increas the large list of THE DAILY BEK , am having established the propaymon system wo propose to maintain it as wo are doing with our WeekJy odi tion. tion.To To these who are not familiar will our plan of distribution or thomannei Jo which the premiums are secured bj us , wo append the explanation niado to our weekly subscribers , which ap plies equally to the subscribers of TIIK DAILY BEK. Two years aqo the publishers of Tiir. B rr. devised n scheme for collecting back pay from delinquent subscribers , securing lonewals and extending the circulation of this paper by a distribution - bution of valuable premiums. The sucscss of that experiment , both in tlio collection of back pay and increase of prepaid subscribers was so encouraging - aging that the publishers vontuied ipon the same system of premium dis- ribulions on a nuiro extensive scale ast year. It was demonstrated that wo conldbeltor alford to distribute the ; iionoy usually paid to agents , local collectors and attorneys , directly to our patrons by ollering them oxtia- ordinary inducements to square ac counts and prepay for another year. By this method wo have succeeded in two years in quadrupling the circula tion of Tun WKKKLY BEE and oxtond- ng its influence far beyond the boundaries of this stato. During the first year only n portion of the articles distributed were pro cured in exchange for advertising. When the marked increase in circula tion became known to merchants and nanufacturors last year they willingly placed their machinery and merchan dise nt our disposal in paying for ad vertising. That enabled us to do what seemed incredible namely , fur nish a metropolitan weekly for two dollars a year and sivo our subscaibors premiums that aggregated in value § 20,000. And yet it was a paying in vestment for us , and gave general satisfaction to our patrons. What grow out ot a desire to collect back pay has developed into n now and practical idea. We have discov ered that wo can afford to make our subscribers'sharers in the income of the paper from advertising. * In other words wo can afford to divide the ad vertising patronage of the paper with its subscribers , inasmuch as the income from advertising grows with the in creased circulation. Advertising space in TUB BBK that was worth one hun dred dollars live years ago will com- madd ono thousand dollars to-day This full more goods and machinery have been olforecl us in exchange for advertising than wo could accept in view of the limited space wo devote for that purpose. What wo have con tracted for makes the grandest and most varied list that has ever boon offered for distribution by any news paper , and that too without paying n aollarin money. The only outlay in cash wo expect to incur in connection with these premiums will bo for postage - ago and expressage. This explains exactly how wo procure our premiums And why wo can give nway property oi so much valuo. All the premiums in our list arc worth at retail just what wo represent them. In contracting with manufno turers and wholesale dealers wo accept them only at wholesale rates , but that docs not lessen their value tc these who receive them. THE BEE has for years stood in the front rank of newspapers west of the Mississippi , and to-day circulates more extensively than any paper west of Chicago and north of St. Louis. A largo number of eastern people wlic desire to procure a far western paper , with a view of acquiring reliable information - formation about the resources and do1 velopment of the country west of the Missouri will doubtless avail themselves selves of the opportunity now offeree them. Having for more than ton yeaji been under one management pursuing a course that has established for it pub lie confidence at homo and a widi reputation abroad , THE BEE couM noc alford to engage in any undertaking that was not .conducted fairly and lion estly. The distribution in 1880 am 1881 gave general satisfaction to oui subscribers. The coining distributipt will bo made in the eamo impartia manner , by a committee whom tin subscribers present may select fron their own number , and in nuch man tier as they think fair and equitable Last year all the premiums gave gooc satisfaction , excepting some engrav ings which were not appreciated. Thii year no engravings , maps or picturei have been placed among the prom iums. Our old patrons need no ossuranci from us of the reliability and stability of THE BEE , nor do we need to inforn thom that the principles it advocates and the fearless defense it make it behalf of the producers , makes it al most indisponsiblo to the iudustria classes of the great west. No intelligent person would oxpec that every subscriber will receive f § 050 threshing machine , a 8500 pi ano , a $300 harvester , or a 8150 or gun , but all have an equal chance ii the distribution. Each subscriber that pays up hisar rears and repays another year , ant every now subscriber that remits pre payment for ono year , will receive i premium worth at least Ono Dollar ai retail. As a matter of fact , Tin OMAHA WEIKLY : BEE is worth tin subscription price , Two Dollars i year , to every faamor ; mechanic 01 merchant. Without boasting , wo as sort that no weekly paper , east 01 west , can compare with it in vanotj and choice selections , general news interesting correspondence , and IK other paper in America contains ai much far western news , ranging fron the Pacific coast to the Mississipp river. With the proof of good faitl and honest dealing before them in tin numerous acknowledgments wo pub lish , wo can safely enter upon our enlarged larged undertaking of this year , con fidently believing that its success wil bo mutually satisfactory and udwui tageous.

They have near at hand in largo quantities the finest timber in the world , and have an opportunity to make the first selection , and s\ve the high freights which must bo paid by eastern manufacturers , and conso- tmontly can furnish n , bettor piano for tlio money than any other makers.

Tlnu speaks volumes in favor of those excellent instruments , the product of western enterprise and skill. All disinterested exports ad mit that these pianos are Hindu ln-ttor than those from any other factory and that they nro the most sorvicablo. The piano wo offer is tlmir tylo seven and for elegance of appearance , beauty of tone and solidity of structure cannot be ex celled.
