|VOTARIES OF THE COCKPIT: The bird shown in the photograph is known as a "patogallo" (pato-gallo,
literally "duck-rooster"), partaking both of the nature of a chicken and
a goose, used in cockfighting. Attention is called to its sharpness of
beak and length of legs, one of its toes being shown protruding from
between the fingers of its master. This species of game fowl is the most
formidable known, and one of them has been known to whip half a dozen
ordinary fighting birds in rapid succession (Cuba, 1898).
