WHY SHOULD CATTLE STARVE.
Most people are probably of the
opialoa that the goat aad the ostrich
rank highest as omnivorous animals.
It Is aot so generally known, how
ever, that a cow takes often very
curious things late her stomach,
The United Stats departmeat of
agriculture gave space ia Its exhibits
la the government building to a col
lection of various objects which have
been taken from the stomachs of cat
tle killed for beet at the stockyards
The most emaclag of these objects Is
the lroa tooth of a huge hay rake,
sack as la drawn by two horses upon
the Western prairies. This iron
tooth is curved, aad is four feet
eight laches long, by about a quarter
of aa Inch thick. It was taken from
tke stomach of a Texas steer, which
was to all external appearances la
the best of health' when killed.
, From the stomach of another Texas
steer was taken aa Iron bolt thirteen
aad a halt Inches long by live-eighths
of aa inch thick. Ia a rather small
cow were found objects as follows:
Oae masonic emblem, one dime,
one copper cent, two watch rings.
lager ring and a number of
m. In another cow's stomach
found oae sliver dollar. one silver
watch chaia. one brass hair-pin. a
door-knob aad seven nails or pieces
of nails. One of tke most curious
features of tills remarkable collection
Is a lot of twenty-three hair balls.
Iheso were all found ia the stomach
of a Texas cow which was butch
ered at the Chicago stock yards
eely a short time ago. When
she was killed the animal was
la good health but small. She
weighed when dressed for beef
tM pounds. These hair balls are
each a porfeetl solid, hard, circular
mass The largest oae Is five laches
in Oiameter. and the smallest about
aa inch aad a half. The balls are
formed by the animal licking Itself.
The hair comes off and adheres to
the tongue. It Is then swallowed,
and once la the stomach la rolled up
aad compressed into the globular
Isle's Mill rata.
Three years ago the wood buffalo
Was supposed to have become extinct
Vow it seems that last winter the
Indians brought in from the Slave
lake aad fence river districts 200
skins of the wood buffalo, some of
them of anusal siie and fine quality.
The theory Is that the remnant of
the great herds that formerly
roamed In the Northwest found a
feeding ground nut of tho route of
Indians and hunters, multiplied
greatly, aad were driven South by
tho extreme cold of last winter.

To charge from fifty cents to f 1 for
a boutonaiere which represented
only the cost of picking the flowers
out of the fields is robbery pure and
simple, writes Edward W. Bok in the
idles' Home Journal. On two dif
ferent occasions that I distinctly

cents for tot five cents' actual
worth of Cowers 1 was laughingly
told by the young lady to whom

gentlemen like yourself won't insist

enough that I was overcharged, bet

each instance in a church and la the
name of charity!
Is it any wonder, I ask. that it is
so difficult to induce mon to attend
bazaars and fairs? They know what
is ia store for them if they attend.
They know that the innocent twea-ty-fivo
cents admission" represents
aa exit of $10 to 25. in proportion to
their good nature. I am calling this
practice by its proper name, because
I think it is time that the great and
noble works done for honest charity
ia this country should not be asked
to suffer, as many of them are un
doubtedly suffering to-day, from this
aad other forms of abuse practiced
in the name et charity. And I do
not believe that the managers of
charitable affairs really have an ac
curate realization of the rapidly
growing aversion on the part of mea
for these events. If they had this
knowledge I think they would apply
the remedy without delay.
