RAISING WILD ANIMALS
FOR FURS UNSUCCESSFUL
"No extensive. Industrj will ever result
from efforts to raise, wild animals In cap.
tlvlty for their furs," declares P. H
"Waterman, a representative of the J. H.
Bishop Fur ocfhpany, who Is In Omaha
looking after next season's fur business.
Ho referred to attempts made In varl
ous parts of .the country to produco mar
ketablo furs from skunks, muskrats,
minks and other. animals In captivity, and
said that tho best results from such ef
forts had been found lnferlorto furs se
cured from .wild animals in tlfelr natural
conditions In. America and abroad.
'"The trouble,"" he explained, "is that as
soon as an animal . Is held in captivity,
the .quality ?f . its fur deteriorates. An
other obstacle' is that the varying condl
tlons of captivity in different localities
make it impossible to secure a uniform
quality of fur In that manner."
He said that several large eastern fur
companies .had experimented with fur
bearing animals in captivity, and had
abandoned that .method of securing pelts.
