Votaries of the Cockpit (Cuba, 1898)
 
 
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).
