FEW CANARIES COMING HERE
Blockade of German Ports Keeps Birds In
Those who may havo been under the Im
pression that canary birds Imported Into this
country como from tho Canary Islands will suf
fer a severe disillusionment at this time, es
pecially If tho family thinks that a canary bird
Is needed, nnd someone proceeds to "buy" -a
canary. Tho fact is, that in times of peace ca
nary birds como from the Hartz Slountalns, In
Germany, where they are bred by the peas
ants In garrets and spare rooms of their cot
tages. One New York firm alone Imports
100,000 canaries annually.
At present no canaries can he bought In tho
bird stores because of the blockade of German
ports. Ordlnnrlly, these birds sell for $35 to J30
per dozen. The Individual bird Is sold on his
merits, as Indicated by his looks and his voice.
The female canaiy Is a poor singer and sells
for half the price of the male. Tho birds sing
best between tho ages of a half-year and six
years. Frequently they live to be 12 years old.
The bird dealers also suffer from lack of
cages for other birds. Tho canaries are shipped
In Individual wooden cages made in Germany
nnd are sent In lots of 100 to 500. These birds
have to be fed dally on canary seed and hard
boiled eggs as well as given fresh water. A
skilled attendant has to accompany them on
the voyage and frequently a young peasant
earns his traveling expenses to this country In
lar, simple nnd appealing play.

Slight Decrease Shown In World's Aggregate
The quicksilver production of the world dur
ing 1013 is estimated at 4171 metric tons, against
42G2 tons in 1912 and 40S3 tons In 1911. The
countries of production Inst year were: United
States. OSS tons; Austria-Hungary, S5S tons; It
aly, OSS tons; Spain, 1490 tons; Mexico and
others, 150 tons. These figures were gathered
by the United States Geological Survey.
Quicksilver Is used mainly in the manufacture
of fulminate for explosive caps, of drugs, of
electric appliances and scientific npparatus, and
In the recovery of precious metals, especially
gold, by amalgamation. A new use in Scotland
Is the floating of lights of lighthouses upon a
body of quicksilver. A use In England, In the
United States nnd possibly elsewhere. Is the
coating of ships' bottoms with a paint contain
ing quicksilver to prevent organic growth. Sler-
curlc oxide (red oxide of mercury) is the ac
tlvo poison In antl-fouling paint successfully
used on ships' bottoms. The metal appears to
bo little employed In silvering mirrors, as ni
trate of sliver Is now chiefly used for the pur
pose. Increasing use of quicksilver is probably
to be expected In the manufacture of electrical
appliances and of fulminates, and tossibly of
paints for protective coatings on metals.
The demand for quicksilver for amalgamating
gold and silver has greatly decreased, as Is well
known, with the decreased aupply of free mill
ing ores and the Increased application of cyanl
datlon to gold nnd silver ores. Industrial chem
istry nnd Inventive genius are to bo looked to
for Increasing the demand.

she once owned a pet Egyptian scarab, an In
sect resembling the cricket. "Above all things
else," said Sliss Ware, "the scarab Is noted for
its longevity, often living as long as S00 years.
Sly scarab died a year ago In its Infancy It
was only 100 years old. I had It for only three i
years of Its life. It was the most unique pet
I ever had, and I got terribly attached to it.
It lived in a little cage, and I fed It on sugar-,
water. Once I gave It sugar diluted In cham
pagne, and you should havo seen that beetle
It got quite tipsy. Its antics were terribly fun
ny. Sometimes I wore the scarab attached to
a thin gold chain. I called it 'Amenoteph.' Tho
Egyptians used to worship the scarab, you
know, I adored my pet, and wept at Its demise.
I'd thought of having a llttlo tombstone made
over a tiny urn; but I lost the dead pet in trav
eling. On the tombstone I would have bad,
'Here lies Amenoteph, who died in his infancy
ho was only a hundred.' "
"Alas," sighed Miss Ware, "if only the youth
of plays were no less brief!"
