Like everything else in this world thai Is good for anything. It Is capable of evil aa well as good result Knives have been used to etab people, ropea to hang tbem and water to drown them, yet no man of common aenae would fall on that account to make a right use of knives, ropes and water. Thai safest way of Inbreeding, ao far aa out observation goes, la from aire to daugh ter There la one rale that ahoutd al ways be watchfully observed: Never Inbreed heifer or cow -thai shows a tack of constitutional vigor. Keep that Idea foremost. Also, with like pertinency, never Inhreed to a alro who shows any signs of linking In coti stltutlonal vigor. Now, within those) two road fences It Is safe and very often advantageoua to breed a daugh ter back to her aire. This should la practiced In breeding grade cowe great deal more than It la done, with close observance of tho foregoing rules.
