Stacey and Gibson, Large
Local fur Farmers, to
Display at Show
' - By J, JUDD
LIBERTY. Nor. 25 Fur farm
ing has maintained a steady in
crease the last year or two with
also ft general lmprorement of
methods. The two largest sllrer
fox farms within a 15-mile radius
of Salem are the ranches ot R. D.
Gibson on route three and of C
W. Stacey on route four, both In
the Liberty district. Both farms
are Increasing their stock for the
coming year.
The Gibson ranch began the
season last year with 82 breeders
and from this start raised 70 puds.
Eighty-lire pelts are being taken
this year. Eren with this heary
pelting the ranch will go Into the
next breeding season with four
more foxes than last year as some
outside stock has been brought In.
air. Gibspn also cares for foxes be
longing to Mr. Ledgerwood of Ma
nama fish hatchery and those of
Joseph Smith of Salem.
Mink Also Oalsed
Interesting at this farm alio
are the mink belonging to - Dr.
Fred Ellis of Salem. From three
adults 18 kittens were raised this
year, and all will be added to the
original breeding stock. The Gib
son ranch will receive risltors up
to the first of the year.
The Stacey ranch began last
season with 45 foxes and from
these raised 96 pups; 75 foxes are
being pelted here and S3 will be
carried orer into the next breed
ing season. The Staceys will ranch
only their own animals this com
ing year. They hare also a few
pens of German fitch. Visitors
will be welcomed at this time as
the foxes are at their best at this
Look What Foxes Eat
A thriving fox industry has a
heary consumption ot a rariety of
foodstuffs. For example the fol
lowing food was consumed on the
Stacey ranch the last year: three
tons cereal, 15 hundred dosen
eggs, 50 (Mall calves, 10 horses
and cows, two tons chicken offals,
1000 pounds regetables and fruit.
10 gallons cod lirer oil, and other
foodstuffs in smaller quantities.
Fox ranches also demand a great
supply of wire, lumber, sand, and
other materials.
The sate of fox skins brings a
large amount of eastern money to
Oregon as New York City is the
big pelt market, and pelts hare
remained abore the- cost of pro
duction while most other produce
has gone below.'
Exhibit at Show
Pelts from the Liberty ranches
win be on display at the fur show

ed that unless the one sergeaney

The moratorium declared by

holders, would relinquish their

Amputation Necessitated by
Wound Suffered in Thurs-
day Duck Hunt
Accidental discharge ot his own
shotgun into the left forearm ot
Dewayne Duncan, 17. 648 Union
street. Thursday at 11 a. m. up
the Willamette rirer near Roberta:
station, necessitated the amputa
tion ot the lad's forearm later in
the day at a local hospital.
Misfortune has stalked the Dun
can family. Tears ago a brother
died as a result of injuries sus
tained in football. The lad's fath-.
er also was killed accidentally in
a mishap in the local paper mill
where he was working.
Thursday's accident occurred as
Duncan, Charles Lapschies and Al
fred Laue were pulling into shore
in a row boat in which they had
been duck hunting. As the boat
touched shore, Lapschies thought
he saw a squirrel moving in the
brush. He prepared to shoot.
Duncan called to him to wait un
til he had his gun ready so they
both could hare a shot.
Duncan took his shotgun by the
barrel, the safety being on. As
he pulled the gun towards him,
the muzzle touching his left fore
arm, the gun s hammer caught on
the boat, drew back and as the
lad pulled the shotgun, it dis
charged into his arm.
He did not faint as his compan
ions got him from the boat and
into their car near the river's
bank. He was rushed to a local
hospital where the amputation
was made. He was resting easily
last night.
Duncan was a former carrier for
The Oregon Statesman. He bad
been promised a job at the local
paper mill soon, his place being
top on the waiting list.
