FRUIT PACKAGES. BEING the oldest as well as the largest dealers in berry boxes and other fruit packages in the west, we are prepared to furnish you the best stock made, at low prices. We handle a great many carloads each year, and from our long experience of more than a quarter of a century we are enabled to select superior stock and give instructions for cutting, so that it will suit our trade. It pays to have bright smoothly cut stock which will make the fruit look nicer and sell better. Prices named here are subject to change during season.

[Illustration entitled "GLASS FISH GLOBE."]

THE AQUARIUM. A well regulated aquarium adds an elegance to any place and is one of the most desirable ornaments for the parlor, library, sitting or dining room. It offers a wide opportunity for the study of nature, the motion of animal life eliciting the admiration of all, while affording instructive amusement for the children. The fishes require very little attention, and live a great many years. We breed immense numbers of gold fish, paradise fish, etc., and ship them to all parts of the United States from Maine to California and from Canada to the Gulf. They can be shipped at all seasons of the year; cold weather does not affect them unless bucket containing them freezes solid. The express charges are always paid by the purchaser. We have thousands of aquaria customers in the country as well as in the city, and therefore devote space in this catalogue to gold fish, knowing that they are the handsomest parlor ornaments which can be obtained. Ask for our Aquaria catalogue. It contains valuable information on Fish, Globes, Aquariums and Supplies.

[Illustration entitled "AQUARIA CASTLE."]

[left column]

GOLD FISH.--While there are many varieties of gold fish, as shown in our illustration, in this list we refer to the plain variety only by this name. These are more popular than the fancy sorts, being hardy and generally satisfactory. They are a species of carp, inhabiting ponds and sluggish streams in China and they are better adapted to life in fish globes than any other breed of fish. They are universal favorites, of golden red color. Those bred in this state seem to have a peculiar brilliancy of coloring which is especially noticeable when in the fish globes. Prices 10c, 15c, 25c, 35c, 50c and $1.00 each according to size. Extra choice three-color specimens, when obtainable, $1.00 each. The 25c size (5 for $1.00) is the most popular. The largest size is only suitable for outdoor ponds or fountains.

ORIOLE FISH.--Beautifully variegated golden red and clear black. Medium size 25 cts. each; 5 for $1.00.

PEARL FISH.--These elegant fish are either of clear pearly white color or the white is variegated with gold markings. Medium size 25c each; 5 for $1.00.

SILVER FISH.--This is simply an uncolored gold fish of dark silvery color. Nice for a variety. Medium size 10c each; 6 for 50c.

JAPANESE FRINGETAIL FISH.--These aristocratic fish are undoubtedly the most beautiful of all aquaria fish, having extremely long, drooping tail and fins. Choice specimens are very rare and when obtainable sell at $10.00 to $50.00 each. We can furnish nice young specimens at $1.50 each; select at $2.50 each.

TELESCOPE FISH.--A very curious appearing fish which always attracts attention from its "extreme ugliness." Eyes are abnormally large and bulging. Price $1.00 to $1.50. Black Telescopes, which are quite rare, $3.00 each.

[left column-1]

GLASS FISH GLOBES.--These are neat, cheap and consequently more popular than the large aquariums. The 8, 9, 10 and 11 inch are the sizes most used. [table] [column headings: DIAM. HOLDS. EACH.] 5 in. 1 qt. $ .25. 6 in. 2 qts. .40. 7 in. 3 qts. .50. 8 in. 4 qts. .60. 9 in. 6 qts. .75. 10 in. 8 qts. 1.00. 11 in. 12 qts. 1.25. 12 in. 16 qts. 1.75. 15 in. 30 qts. 3.00.

[left column-2]

STANDING FISH GLOBES--These are raised up on a glass base and are handsomer than the ordinary fish globes, but are not as satisfactory, owing to their liability to crack at the juncture of bowl and base. [table] [column headings: HOLDS ABOUT. EACH.] 1/2 gallon. $1.00. 1 gallon. 1.25. 1 1/2 gallons. 1.50. 2 gallons. 2.25. 3 gallons. 3.00.

JAPANESE FANTAIL FISH.--By far the most popular of all fancy fish and the most satisfactory of the imported varieties. The fins and tails are long and of delicate lace-like substance. The tail is V-shape and frequently divided so that it might be called two distinct tails. They are beautifully variegated usually with golden red and pearly white or black. Nice specimens 50c each. Choice 75c each. Fancy, some showing three colors, $1.00.

AMERICAN FANTAIL FISH.--These are bred from the imported Japanese fish and are very handsome. Price, according to size, shape and color, 25c, 35c, 50c and 75c each.

GREEN GLASS TANKS.--Made of ordinary green glass and on close inspection they show some air bubbles, but they have been greatly admired in our store as the water contained in them has a delicate sea green appearance and the fish show up beautifully. They vary somewhat in size. They are the cheapest square aquarium made. No. 1. About 6 x 9 in., 10 in. high... $1.50 No. 2. About 8 x10 1/2 in., 11 in. high... 2.25 No. 3.

132 SEED CATALOGUE AND GARDEN GUIDE.

BIRDS.

"Little Dewdrops of Celestial Melody."

The companionship of a bird has brightened the life of many a tired, over-worked mother on whom the daily cares and burdens rested heavily. The music of a good singer makes the whole house more cheerful and every member of the family enjoys the pure, clear notes of a happy little song bird. At all seasons of the year our stock is the best obtainable and we specially invite the patronage of those who are well posted and can appreciate a bird of superior quality. Our bird department is as complete as any bird store in the country and our prices are lower than most others. The reason for this is that we handle many thousand birds annually and have the largest mail order bird business in America. Ask for complete illustrated catalogue. We ship birds safely to the most distant parts of the United States. Express charges to be paid by purchaser on all goods on this page except where stated. Prices are subject to change. Ask for special quotations if you desire several birds or a large lot of supplies. The winter is the best time to ship birds.

HARTZ MOUNTAIN CANARIES.—These are a specialty with us. They are bred in Germany, high up among the Hartz Mountains, and are famous for their clear, pure, beautiful song, which is a restful melody. There is no comparison between these and common American "screeching" canaries, whose choppy notes are at times almost ear-splitting. They are perfectly happy in the cage, require little care and are more hardy than any other bird. Choicest male birds $3.00 each; second grade birds $2.25 each. FEMALE CANARIES.—For breeding, $1.00 and $1.50 each, according to plumage.

MOCKING BIRD.—The most beautiful songster of all American birds and has wonderful powers of mimicry. It is a general favorite the world over, and will imitate any sound it hears, whether it be a canary, a nightingale, the cry of the katydid, the squeaking of a pumphandle, the squealing of a pig or the midnight call of a cat. Nice healthy young birds $3.00 each; older birds, beginning to sing, $6.00 to $15.00.

ST. ANDREASBERG ROLLER CANARIES.—These birds are without doubt the finest songsters in the world. Their tones are sweet round and full, consisting of delightful bellnotes, low water bubble, charming flute notes, long, silvery trills and whistling. They can be taught to whistle a tune and their most restful music continually delights and surprises one by its many changes. They are an ideal bird for an invalid and are often presented by our customers to sick friends; $5.00 each.

RED BIRD or CARDINAL. — A handsome bird with bright red plumage. Whistles so nicely it is sometimes called the Virginia Nightingale. $2.50 each; females. $2.00 each.

PARROTS.

During the past year we have sold about 1500 parrots, shipping to almost every town of importance in the United States. We guarantee each bird to learn to talk.

MEXICAN DOUBLE YELLOW HEAD PARROT.—This is the most generally satisfactory of all species of parrots. If the teaching of these birds begins when they are young, they learn to talk quite readily and become very fluent. This bird is frequently called the operatic star owing to his natural gift of song. Usual price $15.00 each. During the summer, price for young birds is lower.

OTHER PARROTS. —We can usually furnish other breeds at $5.00 to $25.00 each. Educated parrots $15.00 to $40.00 each. When you are ready to buy ask for list of birds in stock and prices.

BIRD SEED.

But few persons are aware how much a bird's health, and consequently its song, depends upon the selection of seed. To the eye of the inexperienced buyer there appears to be but little difference. The mixed bird seed in most stores is the cheapest quality obtainable—often old, hard or musty. As you value the life of your bird, feed only our superior bird seed.
