While experiments t. it!) the forolpn sp cies named offer every promise of surress to the owners of American preserves, the elk and Virginia deer are ree- onimonded as best adapted for the production of veal-r.n in the Unitc-d States.

The general popularity of venison Is so great and the demand for It so widespread that over production Is Improbable. The other products of th- df or skins and horns are of considerable Importance and in countries where doer are abun dant and especially where large herds are kept in -ml domestication, the commerce In both Is very extensive. The wapiti, known generally In America as the ellv. K next to the moose, the largest of our deer. It svas once abundant over the greater part of the United States, whence its range extended north ward to about latitude CO degrees la the Peace river region of the Interior of Canada. In the I'nited States the limits of Its range eastward w'.-e the Adirondack's, western New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania; southward It reached the flouthern AHeghenies. northern Texas, southern Now Mexico and Arizona; and westward the Pa ciflc ocean. At the present time the elk are found only In a few scattered localities outside of the Yel lowstone National park and the mountainous country surrounding it. where large herds remain. Sn.allr herds still occur in Colorado, western Montana. Idaho, eastern Oregon. Manitoba. Al Ivirta. British Columbia and the coast mountains of Washington. Oregon and northwestern Califor nia A band of the small California valley elk siIJ! Inhabits the southern part of the San Joa juin valley. Th! herds that summer In th Yellowstone National park and In winter spread southward and eastward In Wyoming are said to number about ao.000 head and constitute the only larjje tionds of this noble game animal that are left. Although protected In their summer ranges and partially safeguarded from destruction In winter ly the state of Wyoming, there is yet great dan gpr that these herds may perish from lack of food In a succession of severe winters. Partial pro vision for winter forage has been made within the national park, but the supply Is Inadequate for U:j large numbers of animals. Further safeguards are needed to place the Wyoming elk herds be yond the reach of winter starvation. in addition to the wild herds there Is a con fif rable number of elk In private game preserves and parks, as well as In nearly all the public zo ological parks and gardens of this country. The herds In captivity form the nucleus from which, under wise management, some of the former -ranges of this animal may restocked and from nfclch a profitable business of growing elk veni son for market may be developed. At the pres ent time this species affords a most promising -field for ventures in breeding for profit. 'i The elk Is both a browsing and a grazing nnl--ma! While it eats grasses freely and lias been known to subsist entirely upon pasture, it seems to prefer a mixture of grass and browse. The elk is extremely polygamous. The adult bulls shed their antlers annually In March or April and new ones attain their full size In about -90 days. The "vehet" adheres until about Au- ; gust. While the horns are growing the bulls usu- . ally lead solitary lives; but early in September. j when the herns are fully matured, the mating , aeason begins. Fights for supremacy then take plare and the victor takes charge of as many cows aa hs can round up and control. Although the elk is less prolific than the com mon deer and some other species that have been bred in parks. It increases fully as rapidly as the common red deer of Europe. Moreover, it makes up tor any lack of fecundity by its superior har diness and ease of management. It has been ac climatized in many parts of the world and shows the same vigor and hardiness wherever it has besii transplanted. In Europe It has been suc cessfully crossed with the Altai wapiti and tho red deer and in both instances the offspring were superior in size and stamina to the native stock. The flesh of the elk. although somewhat coarse. In superior in flavor to most venison. That of the bulls is in its best condition about the time the velvet is shed. In October their flesh is in the i;ooret condition. As the open season for elk Is usually in October and XoTeinber and only tmlls are killed.

Is not best when freshly killed, but should be left hanging for four or five days before it is used. With few exceptions the early attempts to domesticate elk were made by men who were wealthy enough to disregard all thought of profit In raising them. They were usually placed under the care of servants and the bucks were left un castrated until they became old and unmanage able. Soon the serious problem of controlling them outweighed the novelty of their josses.sion and one by one the attempts at domestication were abandoned. A desire to preserve this important game ani mal has caused a renewal of attempts to breed it In confinement and at present there are small herd9 under private ownership in many places in the United States. The biological survey has re cently obtained much information from owners of herds in regard to their experience in breeding nnd rearing the animals and also their opinions as to the possibility of making the business of raising them profitable. Of about a dozen suc cessful breeders nearly all are of the opinion that raising elk for market can be made remu nerative if present laws as to the a!e of the meat are modified. One especially Important fact has been devel oped by the reports from breeders. It is that the elk readily adapts itself to almost any environ ment. Even within the narrow confines of the paddocks of the ordinary zoological park the ani mal does well and increases so that periodically the herds have to be reduced by sales. The fullest reports that have been received by the department of agriculture from breeders of elk are from George W. Russ of Eureka Springs. Aik. Mr. Russ has a herd of 34 elk. They have ample range In the Ozarks on rough land covered with hardwood forests and abundant underbrush. The animals improve the forest by clearing out part of the thicket. They feed on buds and leaves to a height of eight feet and any growth under this Is liable to be eliminated if the range is un restricted. If not closely confined elk do not eat the bark from trees nor do they eat evergreens. In clearing out underbrush from thickets they are mere useful than goats, since they browse higher. Coats, however, eat closer to the ground, nnd as the two animals get along well together Mr. Russ recommends the use of both for clear ing up brushy land ami fitting it for tame grasses. The Increase of elk under domestication Is equal to that of cattle. Fully 90 per cent, of the females produce healthy young. An adult male elk weighs from TOO to 1.000 pounds; a female from 000 to S00 pounds. The percentage of dressed meat is greater than with cattle, but. owinc to hostile game law, experience In mar keting it is i-ery limited. An offer of -JO cents a pound for dressed meat was received from St. I-ouis. but the law would not permit Its export. Mr. Russ says: "From the fact that as hich as 11.50 a pound has been paid for Mie meat In New York city and Canada and that the best hotels and restaurants pronounce it the finest of nil the meats of mam inals. we are of the opinion that if laws were such that domesticated elk meat could be fur nished it would be many years before the supply would nsaxe the price reasonable compared with other meats. Elk meat can be produced in many sections of this country at less cost per itound than beef, mutton or pork." Mr. Russ thinks that large areas of rough lands in the United States not now utilized, espe cially in localities like the Ozarks and the AHe ghenies. could be economically used to produce venison for sale and he regards the elk aa espe cially suited for this purpose. Another feature of Sir. Russ's reiort Is of more than passing interest. He says: "We find from long experience that cattle, sheep and goats can be grazed in the same lots with elk, providing, however, that the lots or inclosures are not small; the larger the area the better. We know of no more appropriate place to call attention, to the great benefit ol a few elk ea- in the Fame pasture with sheep and goats. An elk Is the natural en emy of dogs and wolves. We suffered great losses tu our flocks until wo learned this fact; since then we have had no loss from that cause. A few elk In a thousan.l arre pasture will abso lutely protect the flocks therein. Our own dogs are so well aware of the danger In pur elk park that they cannot be In duced to enter It." Elk thrive best In preserves having a va riety of food plants grasses, b u s It e s and trees. Rough lands, well watered with clear streams and having some forested area, are well adapted to their needs. About as many elk can be Kept on such a range as cattle on an equal area of fair pasture. There should be thickets enough to furnish winter browse, but this should be supplemented by a supply of winter forage. Except when dicp snows cover the ground, elk will keep in good condition on ordinary pasture and browse, but a system of management that pro vides other food regularly will be found more sat isfactory. Hay and corn fodder are excellent win ter forage, but alfalfa hay has proved to be the best dry food for both elk and deer. Elk are much less nervous than ordinary deer and less disposed to jump fences. When they escape from an enclosure they usually return of their own accord. If tame, they may be driven like cattle. Ordinarily a five-foot fence of any kind will confine elk. The cost of stocking an elk preserve Is not great. Usually surplus stock from zoological parka or small private preferies may be obtained at low cost, arying with the immediate demand for the animals. The Virginia or whitetail deer Is the common deer of the United States. Including the half dozen geographic races that occur within our bor ders, it is distributed over mosj of the country, except Nevada and the major portions of Utah. Arizona. Washington. Oregon nnd California. It is extinct in Delaware and practically so in a num ber of states in the middle west. South of our borders a number of closely related species occur. In view of the wide natural range of the Vir ginia deer, its adaptability to nearly all sections of the United States cannot he doubted. Testimony as to its hardiness In parks and preserves Is not so unanimous as that concerning the elk; but the general experience of breeders Is that with suitable range, plenty of good water and reasonable caro in winter, raising this deer for stocking preserves or for venison may he made as profitable as any other live-stock Industry. Not only do deer thrive on land unsulted for rattle or horses, but. like elk. they may be raised to great advantage In brushy or timbered pastures fully stocked with cattle or horses, as the food of deer rarely Includes grass. Advocates of the Angora goat Industry state that within the United States there are 230.000.000 acres of land not sult;d to tillage or to the pasture of horses, cattle or sheep, which are well adapted to goats. Much of this l:nd Is suited also to deer and elk and can be utilized for these animals with less Injury to the forpst cover than would result from browsing by goats. Virginia deer have often been bred In parks for pleasure or In large preserves for sport, but the economic possibilities In raising them have re ceived little attention. Recently breeders have recognized tho fact that they are profitable under proper management and would be much more so wore conditions for marketing live animals and venison more favorable. The chief obstacle to profitable propagation of deer in the United States is the restrictive char acter of state laws governing the killing, sale and transportation of game. Many of the states, fol lowing precedent, lay down the broad rule that all the game animals in the state, whether resident or migratory, are the property of the state. A few states except game animals that are "under pri vate ownership legally acquired." The laws concerning the season for killing and the sale of deer are often equally embarrass tng to those who would produce venison for profit. The owner of domesticated deer cannot legally kill his animals except in open season. Instead of hampering breeders by restrictions, as at present, state laws uhould be so modified as to encourage the raising of deer, elk and other animals as a source of profit to the individual and to the state. It is believed that with favorable legislation much otherwise waste land in the United States may be utilized for the production of venison so as to yield profitable returns and also that this excellent and nutritious meat. Instead of being denied to &9 per cent, of the population of the country may become as common and as cheap la our markets as mutton. WVSHINGTON. "Labor-saving de vices are always in demand; the thousand inventors of this country are all devoting 90 per cent, of their time to producing such things, each in the hope of winning for himself fame and fortune, cash and credit." said a pat ent attorney the other day In Wash ington.

Among persons who use more senti ment than reason, or lack knowledge of the facts, it has become a fad to say it is a crime to cut down a tree and that it is always, under any cir cumstances, an act of great virtue to plant one. To one who gives thought to the matter, these accepted principles may be reversed, and we can say with all seriousness and truth that there is no town in this country where the judicious use of the ax among trees in some neighborhood or other Is not demanded; and, on the other hand, thousands of trees are planted where no tree should be planted. reasonably favorable conditions has Its established size or spread of branches.
