\iin Uji-k IUrn In 11 Church.
Washington Special to the Chicago Trib
une : Ex-Senator Van Wyck of Nebraska has
given the society people here something to
talk about by taking up bis residence In the
picturesque little church en Massachusetts
avenue. Just opposite the rcs'dcnco of Chief
Justice Puller. It Is In the swellest portion
of the city , and for the list few days Mr
mid Mrs. Van Wyck and their daughtei have
made their home In the edifice formerly de
voted to divine service Mrs. Van Wjck
ovuis the property. It having been bought by
her hush mil and presented to her as an after-
dinner favor the day they were leaving WatJi *
lligton for Nebraska at the conclusion of the
latter s senatorial career. It has been the
scene of high church Episcopal and Sweden-
borglan services , but lately has been Idle.
When Mr. and Mrs Van Wyck came here to
attend to repairs then In progress upon their
other property the former suggested that'th'jr
camp tut In their empty church. Mr Van
WcL , since his long Illness , has a horror of
mounting steps , and thought It would be a
great scheme to Hvo on tha .ground lloor.
So they moved to the church and divided
oft the auditorium bj Imaginary lines Into
parlbr , bedrooms , dining room , and picture
gallery Pictures they had In plenty , and a
shopping expedition quickly provided the nec
essary furnlturo. The \cstry was turned Into
a kitchen , and the shining pipes ot tlio organ
nnd the decorations of the chancil helpc-1 out
the art gallery. Hugs , lumps , small tables ,
easy chairs , and sofas dot the space all
around , and papers and boolci give evidence
of their enjoyment. A big rocker under thi
trees which shade the porch made a resting
place for the ex-senntor as he sat readIng -
Ing or chatting. Nobody could have more
fun over the fact that within eisy reach hung
the bell rope , a pull on which would have
caused a familiar sound In that locality.
With plenty ot servants and every comfort
possible the little household spent the last
few duys very pleasantly In their novel quar
ters , and liked It eowell that It Is quite
probable the church will become their winter
home. They Intend to put up partitions and
make a goad many alterations to transform It
into a proper duelling , and have had plans
draivn for that purpose.

"Yes , wo have an adventure now nnd then
out in our country , " said Judge Thompson ot
Wyoming. "It you'll come out and see ua
I'll refer you to five or six men whose hair
breadth escapes would ( ill a book. As for
me , I haven't had but one close call worth
"That'H the very one I'm after , " said the
Detroit Free Press Interviewer.
"Well. It didn't amount to much as an ad
venture , I'm afraid , though I'm free to say
I was never more frightened for ten min
utes. 1 tot ween what Is called the Gran
ite rldt5s and Had Water creek. In
central Wyoming , Is a tine cattle range.
I was out with a small party last summer
prospecting for certain minerals nnd had
to cross this valley at about the center.
There were four of us on horseback , with
our outfit packed on the three lead mule a
and at about 2 o'clock in the afternoon we
sighted homethlng to make the Imlr lift our
hats right oft our heads. "
"Indians or grizzly bears ? " queried the
"Plsli ! The Indians were all right , ani
grizzly bears don't wander down Into the
valleys by das light. What wo sighted was
n herd ot about 1.000 cattle coming our way ,
and they were coming as If every critter
was carrying a hundred pounds ot steam
Two or three herJa had got mUed , and In
trying to separate them the boys had started
n ccncrnl stampede. In the old days the
buffaloes used to bo some on the mad rush
but let mo tell you that the wild cattle a
the west can run a third faster , and when ,
th-sy once get started they will charge a
( laming mountain. The front of the lierd
wasn't over a mile away when we sighted it
and II was no use to run before It , turn bad
or ride ahead. Our horses were scrub stock
and had no speed. "
" .And there as no convenient grovu or
rock to shelter you ? "
"Not a tree nor a rock for five miles
around , but Just wherewe pulled up was
a natural ditch about fifty feet long , cut
out by the rains. It wasn't o\er two feet
wide by tweny | Inches deap , but It was our
only hope. We slipped oft our horse ? , gave
them a slap and piled lno : that ditch faces
down , "
"And the herd passed over you ? " .
"Exactly. I hadn't drawn three long
breaths when the front of the herd was at
hand. Let me. just tell you that I was never
BO- scared In all my born da > s. Every critter
wus bellowing , horns clashing , hoofa digging
up the soil , and as each ono jumped the
ditch he caved the dirt In on ine. I felt fitly
different hoofa scuff my back , and every in
stant expected to be stepped on It took
tha herd only about ten minutes to pass ,
but the time seemed hours to me. When
the last one had coma nnd gnni ) I
was regularly covered In and liad to ba
dug out. Two of the p y were- stepped
on and badly hurt. "
"And your horses and mules ? "
"Picked up on the horns of the cattle-
and tossed about ami stepped on till they
were reduced to a pulp , Just cleined us out
as slick as a. whistle. If we'd been In our
saddles nobody could have recognized ua
as having once been human beings.
"Seemed like the lund ot Providence ,
didn't It ? "
"Of course. That's what we look for and
depend upon out In our country. Come out

The results of the opening of the Cherokee
Strip , September 1C , 1393 , arc already history.
There were ten men for every claim , and
more than n third of the land was entirely
worthless for any form of agricultural pur
poses. The year has been one of contests
over claims , wrltei a correspondent of the
S'ew York Tribune. Many of these have
been settled by force. Sufferings have been
endured bejond the power of pen to de
scribe. Clalmholders dared not invest any
thing In their claims , not knowing who would
be awarded the land by the government.
Women and children who had been used to
the shelter ot a rcof and the comforts of
home were forced to spend the winter In
temporary shacks , old tents , or In a wagon
box set on the ground covered by an old
canvas sheet. Every mouthful of supplies
f r man and beast had to come from the
elates. The long delays In opening the land
Ind exhausted the money and supplies of
nine-tenths of the boomers , so that when
they enfred the strip they had not as many
dollars as children.
The chaos caused by so many contests pre
vented any general effort ot breaking ground
nnd planting crops Hut those who could buy
off the squatters and clear their claims of
nil contests have not raised anything. The
spring rains gat ? promise of abundant har
vest , but the drouth and hot winds which
have prevailed all aver the west have been
dDubly severe in this tectlofi , and the entire
strip Is almost as general In Its desolation
today as when the boomers had driven out
the cattlemen. The clplmholders , who bor
rowed a little money from their friends back
In the states , have spent It and have no har
vest When harvest time arrived the yellow-
tlnlpd wh < at was the evidence ot the
presence ot death Instead of the golden
grain. The fields of sod corn have never
shot the silken shoots which give the prom
ise of the cars of corn. The fields have fired
until the crops cannot be secured tor forage ,
as the corn blades crumble and blow avvaj
like chaff. A more dreary bcene ot desolation
cannot be Imagined , and fuither westward
the damage Is marc complete , If possible.
The first effects of this deplorable condi
tion of affairs was upon the numerous cities
Thousands cf the disappointed land hunters
( lacked to the town sites in tha desperate
hope of securing a. town lot which would at
least partly recompense them for their time
nnd expense These towns were largely promoted
meted by n syndicate of sharks , uho did all
In their power to attract a great number of
boomers , knowing thnt the large surplus of
claim hunters would give their town a sud
den Importance ami assist them In unloading
their best lots at big prices. Nor were they
wrong In their prognostications. Towns
were built In a night which would rival In
population and push many of the. old count )
seats of the east which have more than a
century's growth.
Iut with the failure of all vegetation these
lot speculators , who had been holding on ,
hoping that good crops would help thorn
out. have quietly abandoned the towns. The
city of Perry , which ten months ago had a
population ot 15,000. has not today more than
300 souls. Other smaller towns have been
almost deserted. Arkansas City has
been filled for three weeks with
the fleeing boomers , hurrying away
from the land of promise to some
locality which promises them at least an
existence. Trains have been loaded with
those who could secure the price
of transportation , and many cinlm-
lioldcrs have secured assistance from
the wife's folks , and have sent the women
and children an the railroads , while they
proceeded overland with the dilapidated
prairie schooner and jaded , halt-starved ani
mals. Every day brings long lines of the
discouraged , disheartened land hunters , who
have spent a year or more In the vain
effort to secure a few acres of land on
which to build a home for themselves and
families. Tn I'Us army Oklahoma proper
has not contributed any material strength.
A few who were unfortunate In their selec
tion ot land , and who from other nnd vari
ous unforseen conditions have failed , have
left their claims , but the majority who have
remained in Oklahoma since the opening
five jears ago will be able to winter in
comfort. They were more fortunate In
their flrst few years gnd have now a very
good start and are gurwlns some corn en
their old breaking , where a sod crop would
not survive the drouth.
A Natural lurlonlty In tlio
, The traveling class In geology , under the
direction of Prof. Ilellprln , have made their
latest observations In the northeastern part
of Pennsylvania , and a member of the party
writes to the Philadelphia Record from
ConaBhaugli , Pike county , under the date ot
July 22. saying :
"Variety and novelty rewarded our efforts
last week. On last Thursday wo drove
from our hotel at Crags-moor to the little Inn
at the foot of the mountain , opposite Ellen-
vllle , from which we were to climb to the
Ice cave In the top. We made tha ascent
successfully , but took the wrong oath , walked
past the Ice cave and wandered over the
mountain tops all the afternoon , our search
being fruitless. Late In the day we re
turned to the town to stay over night , that
we might start bright and early the next
"We attended to some very necessary pur
chasing and repairing of shoes , procured pro-
plsions for the trip next day , and on Friday
morning we started , soon after 0 o'clock , to
again ascend in search of the cave , this time
taking a guide , Wo reached the cave aboul
9 o'clock , and , looking over the side of the
chasm that leads to It , we felt the Ice-cold
air rushing out. Prudence dictated that we
wait and cool off a little before going down
into to cola a place. After a rest , and cat-
Ing Ice and snow , we climbed down Into this
big rift , and down the slide cf Ice and rock
to the tongue-shaped mass of snow , which
accumulates during the winter and remains
throughout the year.
"The depth Is about seventy feet , and wo
found the temperature In the coldest place
34 degrees , while out in the sunshine the
thermometer ran up to 12G. This Ice cave
Is one of the many In the Shawangunk
mountains , and they are very Interesting as
well as attractive features. The large fis
sures In the rock caused by the slipping of
the upper course conglomerate on the fine
underlying shale , extend to a great depth
In many cases , and the snow forms a mast
large enough to last through the entire
season. The melting and refreezlng of the
snow cause quite beautiful scalactltlc for
mations , resembling the cnlclte ones fount
In cnves In limestone regions.
"As wo hail abstained from food to a cer
tain extent the previous day. we had preparei
for this trip quite an elaborate lunch , the
crowning feature of which was to be the
vanilla Ice cream , made of condensed milk
and frozen In the perpetual snow of the Ice
cave. The concoction was made carefully In
a tin pail , a whole bottle of vanilla being
used In It. The pall , with a lid , was burlei
snugly In the snow at the bottom of the cave
There U remained to freeze for two or three
hours , according to most approved Qreenlanc
methods ; but , atatt when lunch time came
and wo excavated the luxury. It was found In
Ita original liquid state , and that 'vanilla
soup became the substitute for Ice cream ,
"This was a grievous disappointment , for
as scientific students , we had expected un
usual pleasure from lee cream frozen In na <
ture's own freezer. The afternoon waa spen' '
In visiting other rifts In the vicinity , In cm
the Ice formations hung like a graceful man
tie. while In a deeper chasm a beam of nun
light , piercing the darkness from a chink In
Us rocky walla , made a beautiful effect
What la known as the 'great rift' Is a tre
mendous spill In the rocks , extending abou
a mile In length and In Us greatest width
about 100 feet. Tills riven and torn moun
tain , with Ua great blocks fallen In and
downward , li a wonderful lesson In geology
There must have been 6m& quaking In tha
region when those rocka were broken ant
leased In to wild a manner. "

The threatened ixtlnctlon o ( the American
oyster an Idle threat It would seem In the
'ace ot the fact that the production today Is
greater than It has been before In the history
of the fisheries has lead the United States
fish commission to mike many experiments
n the line of artificial propagation , and to
examine carefully the system ot oyster cut-
; ure followed abroad with aview to Us adop
tion at some remote day in the United States
The Trench people believed fifty years ago
that their supply of oysters was Inexhausti
ble , but they have had to resort to the most
remarkable artificial means to restore their
fisheries. The abundance with which nature
lias blessed the Chesapeake waters nny not
endure through the next hnlf century , espe
cially If no attempt Is made to protect the
oj-ster beds by legislation.
It Is likely that there will always be pub
lic oyster grounds in the United States as
there are In England. Oyster culture In the
older country Is an Important Industry , but
the attempt to Interfere with the right of
fishermen on the o > stcr banks has always
met with a strenuous and partly successful
opposition. Limitations have been placed on
the public fisheries to the extent of prohibit
ing the marketing of deep-sea oysters be
tween June 15 and August 4 , and there are
regulations which have been In force since the
seventeenth century prohibiting the taking
of small ovstcrs altogether. Dut the British
fisherman still dredges for ojsters on the
public banks and l.c probably will continue
to exercise tint privilege for all time The
same spirit of independence will preserve
to the American fishermen the right to the
public fisheries , though certain concessions
arc made even now to those who wish to en
ter on the Industry of oyster cultivation
Already all of the Atlantic coast states have
enacted laws setting aside sea bottom for pre
emption or lease by those who wish to enter
on the cultivation of o > sters ; and most of
the northern oysters come from private beds
H Is estimated by Mr. Stevenson of the fish
commission that the nvallible sea bottom on
the coast of the United States will always
be able to over-supply the local demand for
In other countries the supply of avallibl.
ground Is so small comparatively tint
oyster farms are established under condi
tions which would bo regarded by the Ameri
can o > sterman -almost prohibitory certainly
tainly as commcrcrill } valueless. In Italy ,
for example , the available sea bottom Is let
In parks only fifteen feet square ( the Slary-
land oystermen complain that the limitation
of five acres on pre-emption hinders culti
vation ) and the llaHan oyster farms arc
cultivated on the Snlss mountain plan ver
tically. In France , mqddy bottoms , which
are generally considered Impossible on the
American coast , are 'adapted to the Industry
and are made to produce large crops. Now
Trance Is calmly considering the possibility
of selling seed oysters to our oystormcn.
There la no doubt1 that artificial cultivation
like that of Franco could be adapted to
American conditions.But the proposition tn
introduce the French system In this countr >
has always met with a commercial obstacle
With the enormous natural supply to meet
almost any demand , with the comparatively
extravagant cost of Jabor In tjils country ,
would o > stW cultivation pay ? The answer
has always been that the foreign sjstem ot
culture would not pay In the United States :
that only the limited Industry w'hlch has
been established along the New England
coast could be made profitable as > et. When
the oyster beds ot the Chesapeake show-
signs of exhaustion , there may be a profit
In bringing up oysters by hand ; until that
time It will never be a very Important
American Industry. We produce today nearly
six times as many oysters as all the rest of
the world. We ship 100,000 barrels of ojsters
annually to England. We have oysters to
eparc. and at prices which no other coun
try can even approximate.
There are three distinct branches of the
oyster Industry ; the collection of the "tpat"
or spawn : the protection of the young oyster
through natural growth , and the fattening of
the oysters ot marketable size In some
countries all three of these branches of the
Industry are carried on In the same place
and by the some people , But there is a large
trade In oyster seed' ( the developed spat ) ,
which Is monopolized by France and Hoi
land ; nnd Belgium devotes her attention ex
clusively to the fattening of oysters which
are grown In other countries
It has been estimated that twenty-five
oysters , under perfect conditions , could pro
duce enough joung to supply the whole Con
necticut coast. A female ojster will produce
9,009,000 eggs at a time , and one- authority
says that a particularly large American
oyster may produce 60,000,000 , eggs , at one
time. The European oyster Is leas fecund ,
and produces only 1,000.000 to 2,000.000 eggs.
But from the conditions surrounding the
eggs , the spat and the joung oyster. It Is
possible that from these millions of eggs
but two full grown oysters will result. Mud
Is fatal to the young oyster , nnd may kill
the oyster full grown. The crab , the star
fish , the oyster bird , are all destructive In
fluences which prevent the development of
more than a minute percentage of the fer
tilized eggs. And the possibilities of fertili
zation are considerably lessened by the fact
that the mole and female oysters empty their
generative products directly Into the water ,
leaving largely to chance the fertilization ot
the 'female's eggs by the male fluid. An
authority has estimated that each oyster
born has 1-1H5QOO of a chance of reaching
adult age.
The Influences affecting tha permanency
of the oyster supply in the United States are
not so much the enormous consumption ot
full grown oysters as the destruction ot the
young and the failure' to protect the spat or
to provide for Us safe deposit. With a few
restrictions. It Is every man for himself In
the American fisheries , and It Is na man's
business to protect the ) young oyster , where
It should bo the business of every man. It Is
nobody's business tp maintain the supply ot
spawning oysters , sfj the amount of epat de
creases annually In certain well fished lo
calities. The sameri condition of affairs oc
curred In France , and''lt ' ' became necessary
there for the government to set aside spawnIng -
Ing grounds. This necessity Is not likely to
arise In the United States for an Indefinite
period , but Mr. Stevanson , In one of his ad
mirable reports , has suggested to the authori
ties of Maryland life llecesslty of preparing
the oyster banks for1 ft 3 "set" of "spat , " so
that the greatest people amount may be
collected. A large .prpuprtlon of the Chesa
peake npat Is undoubtedly last in tha mud ol
the sea bottom oneidf * he spat's ' worst ene
mies. 3
Spawning havlng ticn protected , the nexl
step in oyster cullUfVIs the ( election of
the spat. In America but few preparations
are made for this. Along the Connecticut
coast it has been th , custom for some time
to spread gravel at the rate of 100 cr 200
tons to thu aero on muddy ground , and on
the same coaat , as well aa In Long Island
ccund alonu the New York shore , It Is the
custom for oyster farmers to scatter about
300 bushels of shells to the aero aver the
ground under cultivation. The use of shM *
to Improve the oyster beds has had a lim
ited popularity of late years In Virginia
Hut In the south , where so little private
planting Is done , there are not the same
Inducements to method that there are here
In Connecticut : for example , where there
are more than 70,000cres of private ground
one-half under cultivating and only about
13,000 ot public ground.
On the I'equancck river In Connectlcu
there 1s still another method ot collecting
the spat , which might at first be conslJero
an adaption trim the I Lilian , but whlcl
was really a local discovery made In 1868
In that ytar a farmer near Oroton , trim
mine th trees In h s orchard , threw the
'branches Into tlie river. In the fall he
ua < much surprised to find tin- brush cov
ered wltli oysters. Others began to ex
periment wall brush , pbntlng U In May
nd June , with aucli tucccis thnt this
method of raising oysters Is still followed
to n limited extent In the nelghb rhood Its
limitation by the lical authorities Is In the
interest of health , f r the grrat Accumula
tion of brush nt cue time made the water *
s ; nun HIH.
Ihc great tutural supply of spat In Amor-
can waters In rcrtnln localities has mndo It
unnecessary thus far to protect the spawning
oyster. PrcpaniR the sea bottom by dredg-
tig and rcntterlnfi , shell's or grakel In these
callties Is enough to Insure a satisfactory
accumulation cf spat , No attempt Is made
o protect the young ojstor In America ex
cept by removing the crop to deeper water
when tt has attained n certain growth. This
s In fomc measure a protection from the
star fish , and In a great degree a safeguard
agathst storms. Uhcn the oysters are 2
years eld they are seed ojsters , and much
: t the business ot Connecticut oystermen
s In the raising of seed to ell to Long
Island planters. In four years the oyster
* full grown and ready for market.
England Is next In Importance to the
United States In the production of oysters ;
jut this Is due largely to the conditions
which seem tc render her natural supply
Inothaustlblo The Ilomnn wrIUrs spoke
of the abundance t testers on the English
coast in their tlm nnd while the supply has
1 en lessened by too Indiscriminate fishing ,
tlieru Is still a larg > business tn oysters
taken from the public reefs. The decrease
In natural production , however , is well
Illustrated by the fact that seed ojsters
which vorj worth about } l GO n tub of
twenty gallons In ISuO nnd J2 a tub In ISS3
are today quoted nt $10 a bushel. In view
of this heavy price for native seed , the
chief aim of the English ctilturlsts has al-
v-avs been the development ot the ojster
embrjo In reservoirs The possible profits
of the successful e\ecutlon of this under
taking are almost beyond computation. Hut
up to the present time the English experi
ments , though carried on at great expense
nnd with every scientific care , have been
unsuccessful. The only successful expert
in cut In raising a crop In a closed pom ]
from spawning ojstcrs Is that of Mine.
Veuve de Salnt-Sauvcur at llrcneguy , tn
Fiance , and the conditions there are peculiar
The chief obstacles to success In England
have been the collection of sediment In the
ponds , the excess of salt In the water and
the malacratlon of the water. The fish
commission at Washington 1ms gone n sUp
be > end the Englishmen In Its experiments
with artificial cultivation U has proved
that it Is possible to remove the eggs from
the female oysters , fertilize tlirm and raise
the spawn. But while this process Is in
leresting trom a scientific view point it la
as yet of no value commercially
The chief business of th > oyster farmers
of England Is very like that ot the ojstcr
farmers ot Connecticut. Seed u > stcrs are
purchased In the spring , chiefly In Franco

growth In English vvatcis takes on the
characteristics ot the native ojster and can

Grounds leased from the government. Some
of the leases run sixty years The WMtstabio
eon pany , a co-operative concern which pro
dtices Jl.OOO.OCO worth of oysters in a single
yeai , has bicn In existence for n century
The privets grounds are prepared by dredg
ing and by tcntterlng shells , and the seed
is strewn thickly In about a fathom of water
The product Is gathered with dredges. Both
In England and In America dredges are used
on the public , as w I ) as on private grounds
In Connecticut there Is a law prohibiting
the use of steam dredges on the public
Tha continental methods of ojster culture
differ usually from the methods adopted In
England and America. Italy has the oldest
oyster farms. The business Is carried on
extensively only at Tarente. The system Is
entirely different from the French system
In fact It has no parallel In the world. The
Italians have divided the water Into parks
flft&en feet square which are rented by the
small holders at 00 cents apiece. The govern
ment rents out the entire bay bottom to a
coin pan ) for $10,000 a year. The limits of
each park arc marked by ropes stretched be
tween corner posts Other ropes are ar
ranged wcbllke : icros the space. The posts
are made of three Micks of green pine bound
together near the top. Loose bundles of
hazel or gorse boughs are hung In the water
They attract the spat. Spawning takes place
all through the the year , but the chief set
Is In June. When the oysters are firmly at
tached these bundles of boughs ( called fas
cines ) are removed from the water and
broken up Into twigs The twigs are spliced
Into long ropes which arc then hung tn the
water. The oysters swinging from these
ropes escape the sedlmant which too often
spalls an oyster crop at the bottom ot the
water and the crop matures very rapidly
It takes two years and a half to produce an
ojster of the first grade A rope fourteen
feet long will hold 2,000 oysters. The rope
method economizes space and It enables the
oysten farmers to overhaul their crop nnd to
clear away any parasites which might Injure
the oysters. In addition to these ropes there
are light baskets hung In the park In which
loose oysters , taken from theLoHom , are kept.
The annual yield at Tarentc Is about 20,000-
000. There ore smaller oyster ( farms at
Fusaro and the Lucrlno lake. Naples has
some few parks- like those at Tarente , but
the water Is not of the purest.
The best French ojsters are those which
have been fattened and "greened" The
green oysters come from Marennes , where
they are kept In clalres or basins In which a
green moss , peculiar to the locality , grows.
This green color Is highly prized by con
noisseurs. After "greening" or fattening the
oyster Is often placed In a basin filled with
clear water , where he U allowed to remain
until his system Is freed from the sand or
mud which may have entered the regular
food. These are the choicest oysters shipped.
Some oysters are "educated" for long dls
tance Journeys. They are taken from the
water every day for a certain time until
they become accustomed to keeping their
shells closed and retaining their Juices.
When they have been educated In this they
are packed nnd shipped to market. Many
of the oyster farmers ship direct to con
sumers. An order given In Paris Friday
night will bo filled In time for Sunday din
ner. The green oysters of the best grades
cost the consumer from 1 to 4 cents each
and the Portuguese oysters about half aa
There Is' a little dredging on the public
grounds on the French side of the channel ;
but It Is coontrollcd by the government and
Is only allowed for very brief periods.
The Dutch abolished public dredging In
1870 and the government took possession ol
the oyster beds. Now they are let to the
highest bidder on short leases and they bring
to the- public treasury about $500,000 a year.
In some favored localities It Is enough to
shell the ground and wait for the spat to ac
cumulate ; In others the French tile Is used
During the process the tile Is
handled twenty-one limes. Yet the cosl
of each oyster delivered on board the railroad
cars Is , only 3 cents. The Dutch oysters
havea largo sale In Germany. The seed
Is sold In many places. Holland produces
about 70,000 bushels of ojsters each year
a little more than Italy.
The public oyster beds of Spain have been
dredged out , and the price cf oysters lias
advanced In twenty joara from 2 cents to
(2 a hundred. The seed for the Spanish
farmers Is Imported from France , and the
French method of case culture Is followed.
The Portuguese Industry Is very like thai
tn America. The spat Accumulates on the
shell bottom nanrnlly and It Is collected as
seed and sold to fishermen. An English
LOinpany f-r a Itng time controlled the ex
port business and made a great deal o
money sending Portuguese oysters to the
Thames , where they were fattened for the
English market. The business Is now In
tha hinds of Portuguese companies and la
not very flourishing.
Germany has but one district for oyster
culture a sheltered corner of the North
sea. The banks were rented out at om
tlniD for 117,000 a year. Between 18S1 ant
1891 they were closed by the German gov
ernment because they were being depopu
lated They are now held under a lease
which does not permit more than a certain
number of oysters to be taken and which
pays the government a percentage of the

The wildest of wild hogs ll\o both above
and below Viimaon the Colorado rhor.
Whllo the steamer was Ijlttg nt Oa&lle
DC me landing a few days since , s.iys the
San I'ranclsco Chronicle , a fine band ot
them on the opposite shore , came down to
the rhor to feed on the banks , vvhcro the
grasr and - woodsoro \ green , 'and to get a
drink of water They paid no attention to
the boat , nor to the Indians at work After
loafing around for awhile an old bnar came
out of the brush , and , on spjlng us , gave
a "swish , " Hiul nvvny they all went. Hardly
a diy passes that the Indians nnd cattle
men do not run upon them. These binds
seem to bo more timid than ugly.
When the late Thoims lilythc was tr > lng
to settle a colony nt l.crdo. fory-Hve ( miles
below Yuma , oti the Colorado lie sent down
n large- number ot flue , full-bloodid Berk
shire and Polnnd-C'hlna pigs , and turned
them loose on the bank * of the river near
I.inlo , where they lived on the roots , grass ,
weeds , tulcs and mesqulte beans ; bred , mul
tiplied , kept fat nnd tilled the low tule
lands with a large number of flno porkers.
Never seeing a human being , p\ccpt now
nnd then a lone Indhii , they soon became
wild , and wilder still , and scattered until
the low lands anil w noils were Cull of them
Notwithstanding that the cojotes slaugh
tered the little ones In great numbers , they
have Increased null It is estimated Unit at
the present time tlicro arc more than 10,000
of them roaming up and down the Colorado
and Hardle rlvcrc , from their mouths up as
high as the tide nuts , or from sixty-five-
seventy miles this side of the Gulf
They go wherever they please : nothing
stops them In their course. When the Colorado
rado Is at Its flood they will cross It from
shore to shore , even near the Hardle , where
It Is four nilUs wide when at Its highest
gauge Their range gives them the finest
ot feed wild sweet potatoes , tulcs , stray
fish , clams , dead turtles and seaweed along
the iicr bank at low tide They are unmo
lested except now and then by a hunter
who finds his way down the river. Most of
the hunters give the wild swine a u Ido
berth except now nnd then as they happen
to sp > a nice little roaster on the bank and
within easy rifle shot.
A few years ago a man and his family
were living n few miles below the colony ,
on the banks of the Colorado He had a
pair of very line largo stag hounds , which
the owner claimed could run down and kill
any wild hog In that reelon One day he
took dogs and rlllu and went for u nice lit
tle one , just right for the oven. He had not
gone far before ho found a large band of
hoes , and turned his dogs loose on them
No sooner had they started when nut of the
tulcs near by jumped nn enormous boar , a
monster , who , with mouth wide open , piylng
no attention to the dogs , made for the hunter
The latter drew up his rifle ami flrtd but on
came the hoar , the dogs nipping at him at
every Jump.
The hunter fired a second shot , but on
came the beast. The hunter turned and ran
for a mesqulte tree a few yards distant , the
hoc close at his heels. He dropped his gun
and Jumped for his life , grasping a limb of
the tree just as the hog grabbed his pants
and tore one-half of them from him , but he
was safe , just out of reach , The dogs all
this while ran grabbing the hog by the hind
legs , to which the beast paid no attention.
The mad boar seized thu bark ot the tree
in his great tusks and tore It Into shreds.
Finally ho turned upon the dogs , Instantly
killed ono and -wounded the other so that it
died soon after. He then turned Ills atten
tion to the tree where the hunter sat. He
guarded him until It was dark. Twice did
the man get down nnd try to get his rifle ,
but his too was on the guard and drov him
back up the tree. During the night the boar
left. Daylight came and so did help The
men had hardly reached the river and got
In their boat when down came the old hog
after them In vain pursuit.
