they are animals and come under the
stock law. Judge Kershaw decided
that geese were animals in the mean
ing of this law, and it wguld seem that
guineas ought to be. During these
hard times It would be dangerous for
a neighbor's guineas to invade our
wheat patch, for it is a fowl that, when
fat and tender, exactly suits our taste;
and it is most convenient in size for a
family of four persons, where three of
them dislike guinea.- Spartan.
