The following resolution, introduced
by the Secretary of the American An
gora Goat Breeders' Association, an
organization affiliated with the Na
tional Wool Growers' Association, and
adopted By the convention, will be
read with especial interest by the An
gora goat owners of the country:
"Whereas, Recognizing in Angora
husbandy a live stock pursuit kindred
to sheep raising, that is peculiarly
adapted to many localities in the Unit
ed States, and an industry that is of
signal promise in this country; and,
"Whereas, Appreciating in the ma
terially inadequate supply of domestic
Angora products for the home demand
today, necessitating annual purchases
of mohair and skins in foreign coun
tries of upwards of a million dollars
in value, it would indeed be showing
an un-American spirit if encourage
ment and protection shall not be met

this young industry.

protection of the present duty on mo

fee for grazing on the national for

HOW TO EXAMINE A SICK ANI
By Dr. David Roberts.
Wisconsin State Veterinarian.
First take the temperature of the
animal by placing a self-registering
Veterinary Fever Thermometer into
the rectum, allowing it to remain
there from three to five minutes. The
normal temperature of a cow is 101
degrees (Fahrenheit) and the normal
temperature of a horse is 100 de
grees (Fahrenheit); hog, 100 degrees;
sheep, 101 degrees.
Second, take the pulse of the ani
mal, which can be found at the angle
of the lower jaw bone. The normal
beats of a cow's pulse is from 40 to
50 per minute and that of a horse is
from 33 to 40 per minute.
Third, count the respirations of the
animal, or number of times it breathes
by watching the sides of flanks, or by
pressing the ear to the side. The
