food as on another, but clean, sweet
grain will produce the best meat.
Unhoused cattle nave a continu

stuffing of food is without result, for
the reason that it is used wholly in
keeping life. Moreover, they are
stunted by their stay at this un
thrifty stage, and will never show as
good results afterward. Foddpr can
be as truly wasted when ptit into tne
stomach as when trodden under

extra food to pay for a good shelter.
