which can bo given tho Inquiries Is
tho uniform ono that no successful
way has yet been discovered of
raising frogs In captivity to an ex
tent which will .mako tho venture
Tho difficulty is that frogs will
cat only Uvo food, principally In
sects, nnd these can not be supplied
In sufficient quantities. This drives
the frogs to cannibalism when they
become Inordinary hungry; and It Is
possible for n frog to swallow a
fellow almost as big as himself. In

several hundred frogs havo been re
duced to a few dozen by the jump
