The Goat Industry.
Some experiments hav.. n . *i.e with Angora goats in this Great Basin, and we believe that wherever proper attention has been given to the business it has proved profitable. There are several flocks in Utah, .X .t~~o ad Wyoming, and yet in these Territories the great stock interests cente. in cattle anu sheep. Goats are niuch' hardi~er than sheep, and are said to be entirely free from the diseases which destroy so many sheep. Then, again, it is claimed their flesh makes better mutton, having something of the flavor of deer ,meet. Mohair is coming into greater demand and commanding better prices, while top pkjT of goats are in such .favor for the ltnifaetytre off gloves, rugs, orna merts of vailous ki4I, #Fj to !_ring . large prices. Yesterday 4 ?Prlbune re- I porter had the pleasure ofmneting Mr, C, P. Bailey, of San Jose, California, on his way home from Texas, and from him learned some interesting facts. Mr. Bailey took via the Southern Pacific over 600 goats from California to Texas, and sold them there. Pure Angora goats brought $50 each,while the more 1 common animals brought about $10 - each, the lot aggregating over $10,000. He found from statistics there are over a half a million common goats in Texas,', principally in six of the southwestern pOqut4ep, In breeding up, the first cross cl fi l pdPpfly fy~P1#4, JB t the second c produces on aq ýyefage p.,pr y4eF)e 011 a half pounds, the tlir il brpe pppr o y and the fourth tour pounds, the quality ail the time setting better, while the fifth produees very long and about as good as the pure Angoras. The Angora I business has been a decided hiieeess in Calitbot ia Atntl N.Vada the past fifteen of Iiore yeprs, and we do not see why the same result cannot be obtained here. It is a question worthy the attention of stock men at least.-Salt Lake Tribune. 0 BTOCK iOTES.
