Sketchier late of the Transvaal South Africa before the American Institute Farmers Club yesterday afternoon. Mr. Sketchly jtated that he had several years' of practical experience in ostrich farm- ing in Cape Colony. The industry of breeding ostriches for their feathers was begun in South Africa only twelve or thirteen years ago. Prior to that the wild ostriches were killed for their feathers. At present more than $0250000 worth of ostrich feathers are exported from South Africa nine- tenths of which are the feathers of tame birds. An ostrich is first picked st the age of 0 or 8 months and again from six to nine months later and every succeeding six to nine months. The quality and value of the feathers improve with each succeeding pluck- ing. If an ostrich has a plentiful supply of food the feath...
