The cattle have o-nt.tnn ftlnno- well since the winter set in but remember that the worst of the season is possibly ahead. The stock can better stand the win ter's cold than the chilling spring raius and muddy pastures. Stab ling for large herds of dry cattle is nnr. pasilv attainable, but brush ahoitAi-s pan be cheanlv and easily constructed', and the cattle will be . . , . , u sure to seek tneir prowxwuu ucu nstinct suggests the approaenwg torni.
