PROMPT! W ""
TRADE IN TERRAPIN.
GREAT INCREASE IN SALES.
Seven Months Without Food or
Drink Cause Them to In
crease in Weight.
' Thirty years ago, with the hardest,
kind of labor," said S. S. Scoggins,
the- game and fish dealer, "I suc
ceeded in selling $1,000 worth of diamond-back
terrapins at from $3 to $10
a dozen. In the season which closed
on the 1st of April I sold over $100,-
000 worth, and my sales would have
reached $500,000 if I could have got
ten the terrapin. The Baltimore peo
ple, and for that matter the people of
the whole state, did not tako to terra
pin at first. It was ten years before
they were purchased to any great
extent. My grandfather leaves it on
record that he bought the best terra
pin in the Annapolis market for
twelve and a quarter cents each, and
his slaves once rebelled because ho
gave them terrapin and would not
give them pork. Of course, times
have greatly changed since then.
" Now there are $1,500,000 worth
of terrapin caught out of the Chesa
peake Bay and its tributaries every
year. As the price averages fully $30
a dozen, this represents 600,000 terra
pins annually. During the season
over 500 men are engaged in catching
them. They are caught on both
sides of the bay, from Rappahannock
to Spring Gardens. They are found
wherever the watercresses grow, and,
as you probably know, the Chesa
peake Bay is the best body of water
for this grass in the world. It is that
which gives them their wonderful
flavor." Mr. Scoggins, who knows
from a long personal observation all
that is worth knowing on this subject,
is a firm believer in the terrapin, both
as a food and as a medicine. He cited
to his visitor several remarkable sto
ries of its sustaining power. "On
the 1st of last September," said he,
" I selected four terrapins from my
stock, weighing exactly four pounds
each. I was very precise about the
weight, as I wished them for a spe
cific purpose. These I placed in a
strong box, which was entirely empty.
1 nailed this box up securely and laid
itaside. On the 1st of April I opened
it for the first time since it had been
closed. What do you think was the
result of the seven months of total
abstinence from both food and drink!"
" Starvation, of course."
" There is where you are mistaken.
Not only were the" diamond backs
well and hearty, but their average
weight was four pounds and one ounce
each. They had gained one ounce on
nothing. 1 have tried the same exper
iment before, and always with simi
lar results. It doesn't cost much to
board terrapins, does it ? "
Mr. Scoggins related an instance of
the recuperative powers of the terra
pin. One night a healthy rat made a
sizable meal off a terrapin's hind
foot, and left an ugly sore. The ter
rapin was placed in a box by itself.
Nothing was applied to the sore, and
in the space of twenty-four hours the
wound was completely healed. There
are several methods of catching the
terrapin. One is by a dredge, another
by a seine, another by a net, and still
another by a three-pronged stick.
With the latter the catcher prods in
the mud until he feels something
move, and then he reaches down for
the diamond back. The element of
luck naturally enters largely into ter
rapin catching, but experience fre
quently shows whore they most
abound. Good catchers know the
reptile's peculiarities, and when they
discover a luxurious growtn oi water
cress they lie low for their prey, as
that is sure to prove a terrapin feed
ing ground. Baltimore American.
Delicate persons, and all whose systems
hae become debilitated, should bear in
mind that Simmons Liver Keguiator is
not a drastic, purging medicine, does not
weaken or deplete the sj'steai as other
purgative medicines do, but acts gently.
It will invigorate like a glass of wine,
but it is no intoxicating beverage to lead
to intemperance; will promote digestion,
dissipate headache, and generally tone
up the system. The dose is small, not
unplensam, and its virtue undoubted.
