Price of Baboons to
. Make Big Jump
(Correapondence of the Associated Press.)
LONDON, April H. Tie boons, sea lions,
alligator. polar bears and similar
animals have generally doubled In price
since the wsr began, according to Lon
don dealers. If the war has not succeeded
In reducing England to actual hardship
as far aa food supplies do. It has cer
tainly played havoc with the storks of
live seals, grlsslles. skunks and other
foreign things In fur and feather that In
habit the public boos of the big cities. '
The scarcity in animals, it is ex
plained, is due to the tact that none are
coming from Germany, which, np to laat
fall, had made itssalf the International
clearing house and general distributing
center of wild live stock for the whole of
Europe. In. this traded It had an advan
tage in geograprlcal situation which en
abled it to supply with equal ease pur
chasers In Russia, Italy, Austria, Franca
or England. The German banks, also,
have always been liberal In financing
tha big animal dealer, while In England
It has sometimes been almost Impossible
for men In thla branch of trade to obtain
any considerable advances on their stock.
. The United States, It la said, haa of
late years ' been the beat customer for
wild antmela. The number of monkeys
alone, sent to America In the course of a
year, haa generally exceeded 4,000. Eng
lish dealers are making elaborate plans
for permanently annexing a large share
of the German trad In animals.
