MEAT CATTLE SHAPED TO SUIT NATIONAL TASTES. Thnt It Is possible for popular tnsto to exorcise n most potent Inllucnce on tlio development of nnlmnls flint nre used for food Ims lately been shown In the difference between French and En Kllsh cattle. The English nrc very fond of ronst meat and show n marked preferenco for those portions of a cow, such as tho fillet, that nre In the region of the loins, whereas tho French llko nothing better than "pot-nu-fcti," which Is made of soup and boiled meat, tho rump being the part of the animal from which the meat Is taken. Thus, If It Is true that steak Is tho most popular dish In En gland, so It Is equally true that "pot nu-fcu" or beef n la mode Is the most popular dish In France. Being well nware of this fact, tho breeders of cattle In both countries have naturally done their utmost to develop those parts of the animal that nre most appreciated. As a result, tho iTK3 OF INTEREST Vfl UT7 rneMeH ChoM tun"!1 ' i n Oi V41ssT I 1' W7 Durham, which Is the typical English cow, and Is almost as much appreciated In Germany, Is to-day notable for Its largo loins, Its well developed chest mid Its small flaccid rump,, while tho Lim ousin, which Is the typical French cow, Is distinguished for its rump, which Is both prominent and (spacious. Tho numbers 1, 1! and 3 hi tho accom panying pictures Indicate, respectively, tho first, second and third qualities of meat, as they nro rated In tho markets of Paris, Loudon and Berlin. It will be seen that In France tho entire rump and a small portion of the back nre re garded as of first quality, 'that tho shoulder and flank tnko second rank and that tho head, limbs and stomach nro not highly prized. In London and Berlin, on the other haud, only tho up per part of tho rump Is regarded as of first quality, though not better than tho loins, nnd the shoulder Is consigned to tho third rank.

A member of Parliament was responsible fot the following: "Even If yon carried these peddling little re forms It would only bo llko a Ilea bite In the ocean." A I'u..ln Indeed.
