It was prophesied by opponents of I

trespassing upon the open fields. Such
not the case. There has been much lesa I
feeling on account of stock than formel

The opponents before ita passage, said
would have no milk end butter, but tl
were false prophets, es it has greatly
creased. A remarkable cass occurred

It nae greatly benefited the material

vote to return to the former law, I hav<
idea Utet 5 pe? cent, would vote for lt.
