A New Industry
Lloyd Manning has inaugurated a new industry in Caddo. He is raising chinchilla rabbits.
This rabbit makes a very fine fur besides furnishing a toothsome meat for the table.
One pair will raise thirty young ones a year if any care is taken of them. The furs sell for about $1.50 each and the rabbit meat is worth a dollar. So it can readily be seen that the industry will prove profitable.
Meat is getting scarce, hogs and cattle are high, so are chickens, wild animals for fur are almost gone, so domestic raising is necessary if women are to continue wearing furs in summertime (error?).
The end of the rainbow is right where you are- if you can see it. It seems to the Herald that more people could engage in this industry with profit.
Mr. Manning has about 70 of these animals. They are easily kept, and feed mostly on vegetables and grain.
