Dixon, III., Auj?. 13. Apart from
the usual finds of pearls, the clam
ming industry at favorable points in
the Missisinpi valley is prospering
this year. Pearls are the clammer's
sideline. His main concern is dig
ging shells from which buttons are
The largest single shipment to
date this year from Dixon was three
carloads, some 150 tons of shells,
which were dug from the bed' of the
river within a radius of half a mile.
They weut to a firm at LaCrosse,
Wis. -The buyer paid . $70 a ton,
which is the highest price yet re
ceived by the diggers, and the three
cars represented $10,000 worth of
Shell Prices Raise.
'Many other clammers have been
holding their shells for higher prices,
.Since this shipment was made shells
have gone to $80 a ton.
Along the shores and mmy of
its tributary rivers may be found
numerous clammers' outfits which
vary somewhat in design although
all serve the same purpose. A
typical outfit consists of a fiat bot
tomed boat on cither side of -which
is a rod 16 feet long. Suspended
from this are chains with six four- I
prong hooks on each chain, in all
600 hooks. . . .
One bar at a lime is lowered and i
dragged along the river bed, thus
catching the partly open chm shell.
Muddy water affords the est re
sults, as the clams there open their
shells for feedincf and can be the
more easily caught.
Spring is Best Season.
Spring and early summer are the
best seasons for the work, as the
spring freshets disturb the water
making it muddv. Lrtcr Jn the
on as the water becomes Cool
clams bury themselves in the
The industry is protected by
game and fish laws, the season
opening legally Junt , 2. and
dptiing December 1.
, Clams breed in August and are
very prolific. The mother weaves a
sort of web 'around herself and
young, and when caught on the
flamming hooks as many as SO or
75 young are oflcn found attached
to her, while many others are lost
in the catching.
The worker's outfit includes a
stove of some sort, the clams being
boiled for an hour after they have
been brought to shore. This opens
the shell and enables the fisherman
to remove the clam. One by one he
goes through his catch discarding
the meat which can be fed to swine
or used for fish bait.
Find Valuable Pearls.
Each shells opened may bring a
large reward tor many beautiful and
valuable pearls have been found in
this way. As the clammer runs his
thumb along the fleshy muscle of
the mollusk he may find big pay for
his day's work.
This summer on Rock river near
here an $850 pearl was found, also
otje which brought $130 besides
many of lesser value. Almost every
tint from whjte to black is discover
ed, and exquisite pink and lavender
being especially beautiful.
. lEvery clam digger has in his
cabin a tiny box lined with fluffy
cotton. This is his treasure trove,
and here are horded the findings of
the day's catch. The experienced
clammer knows the value of a pearl,
knows about how much a flaw de
tracts, and knows the decree cf
perfection of the jewel, so that when
the pearl buyer comes through the
country the wise old river man . is
no. novice to deal with.
