With the sea for hi fence, lord of all
he surveys, many a hardy son of Alaska
Is acquiring wealth in a novel way, by
fostering the simple Industry of breed
ing the little blue fox. Prlbllof Islands
were the home of th little blue fox, th
natlvea ot the Aleutian group prising
th animal equally with the more famous
seal whlon waa wont to XiooK tnere, out
the little blue fox waa not more auo-

master and owner, who kills with method
and system, the blue fox propagates

On some of the Islands where a good
start for a fog farm has been made the
animals Increase at the rate of 100 per
