TThe '.value of the" bird business' in
New York is computed at 50,000 per
annum. . It may not be 'amiss to cive
a few hints to; those who .would like. to
keep canaries, but do not know now to
manarr them. Put ' them - in - roomy
cages of wood and plain wire "Painted
metal cages are injurious,' as theL-bird
pick off - the paint and eat it; Svhen they
become sick. Feed them upon canary
and rape seed, and water; and now and
then a slice of apple, ' and a lettuce 'or
cabbage' - leaf- btrew - coarse- brown
sand on. the bottom" of the cage," and
hang a piece of cuttle fish in the' cage,
for cleaning their beab3 and crops. In
very hot weathergiye; them a small
dish of water to bathein. September
and October the birds moult; at such
times a little maw seed," with:. a pinch
of saffron in their watery is - beneficial.
They begin to breed atqut the middle
of larch," or-tho first of April. " In
Europe it' is customary Ito "place one
male with two female when they do
much better than withcnly one female.
Clean out the cages twice a week, and
three broods a year are easily obtained.
More than that would not be good for
anything. -; If. the bird jis very uneasy,

front them.'. If it should rufle its
eathersj and draw itself into a fuzzy
ball, a little saffron in the water Trill
relieve it. ' . . : . ,
When' you mate birds, give them - a
ittle.villow basket, , which you. can
obtain at the seed stores, a little cotton, the shadow of the vine, the lung cn
a lock of wool,; and V little ' Manilla gaged in a lion chase, and af:cr in the

build their nest. - When the nest is
completed, the female will lay an ' eW

cage every morning-until the young
can feed themselves.; Sometimes, while
laying, the hen will fall from her nest

rendered early, or she -will die. ; ' The
best remedy is to rub a little sweet oil
upon the lower part of the abdomen:
