MILLIONS MADE IN SKUNKS.
Thriving Industry has Sprung up
the Odoriferous Animals.
The agricultural department has
been flooded with letters for several
years past Inquiring for the best
method of raising skunks for the
market Recently the attack by let
ter has been renewed, and some have
been received giving an outline of
what has and can be acomplished
in the business.
One man, says the Chicago Chron
icle, has figured out that he does not
know of any enterprise that will
bring in money faster than skunk
farming. He says that there are
only two species of the American
skunk he jet black and the black
and white striped. The latter, he'
says is one of the most beautiful in!
the animal kingdom, but that its
breath is far from pleasant and in
viting. The jet black skunk is more
valuable than his. black and .white
neighbor, his pelt being worth in the
market at all seasons $1 each, while
the others bring only about half that
amount. The pelts are used by phy
sicians in cases of croup and colds
and kindred diseases. The oil does
not carry with it the awful aroma of
the skunk and has great curative
qualities. This man says that skunk
farming can be commenced with 20
varmints 15 females and five males
an in a few years one will have a
healthy and rapidly increasing bank
He calculates that these 20 skunks
will increase in number at a rate
that will surprise the most rapid ma
themetician. They begin to breed at
1 year old, having two litters a year,
and from five to thirteen at a litter
They live on as little as any 'known
animal, except the goat, and there is
little expense, in raising them, but
they never become. tame, and he ndds
that he does not suppose that pcyone
would care to have them for pets.
They breed in December and again
Putting the average litter at eight,
the twonty skunks will have in
creased to 7195 skunks at the close
of the first year and a half. In four
years,, without some mishap, the
skunks will have increased in num
ber to 3,780,000. If the pelts are
worth ?1 the pelts of 100 male skunks
would be worth $100. The oil at 50
cents per ounce would be ?800, and,
figuring the same as on the increase
of the skunks, at the expiration of
one and one-half years,
skunks would be killed, the pelts of
which would be worth so many dol
lars. The amount of oil Eathered
from tills number woulu he 29,000
ounces, worth just $11,800,
At the expiration of four ye.xrs you
would have killed 1,890,000 males
the pelts of which would be worth
$1,890,000 and the oil 15.120.0n0
ounces $7,560,000, and still have
more than 3,700,000 skunks left.

The dog catcher is busy these days.
Fair warning has been given to all
owners of canines to pay the requir
ed license on them and so far less
than 200 licenses have been paid intoj
the city treasury from this source.
This is perhaps 200 short o the num
ber of dogs in the city limits and
these 200 will fare poorly from now
on unless the owners take heed and
pay the cily tax at once.
Seven canines, of all colors and de
scniuions. are now in tho pound
awaiting the appearance of the own
er to pay charges of impounding and
tne city tax and redeem them. If
tliis is not done within three days tho
