TRUTH ABOUT COWS
The school teacher asked the
pupils one morning to write an
essay on cows. The following is
one of the compositions
"The cow is a no-bull and kine
"Thejnan who looks after cows
is Called a cowherd, but he is no
coward who looks after cows.
"It is reported that the cow sat
at the head of the table in the
Ark (so Say ark-cow-ologists),
,because she was the only animal
that could calve.
"The coW is a good mother,
and will look calf-ter her calf.
"By the cow is the milk made.
I know this to be true, for I have
seen the milk-jnaid by the cow.
"The cow has been introduced
into song. There is an old song
called 'The Soldier's Steer.' This
was written in beef flat, as also
was that very pathetic ballatj,
'For Heifer and For Heifer.'
"The cow's sex is sometimes
rather complicated. To call a cow
an ox is to make a bull.
"A cow likes resting. It will
sleep in its shed and lie on the
grass but iLwfll not stretch itself
on a cowch; it does not go sofa
"A cow does not carry oil -an
argument very obstinately; it
will soon give whey. ,
"The cow chews the cud. The
dairyman will sometimes choose
to cuddle the dairymaid that is,
if he be a dairy-ing man.
"Cows seem to do pretty well,
for even at death they generally
riianage to make both ends meat.
I can't think cow it is that many
calves die young. Perhaps the
hutched could re-veal the secret."
