People of Malta Depend Entirely on Goat* for Their Milk Supply. The population of the island of | Malta, situated in the Mediterranean I sea, amounting to some 200,000 souls, derives its entire milk supply from the goat herds that abound in that little speck of rock. It is estimated tliat there are about 20,000 goats on the island. There are no regular graz ing fields for goats, but every morning the herds are driven out along the roads and hillsides, where they pick up whatever they can find in the way of weeds or any other edible matter, which, however, seldom includes grass. This is supplemented by carob beans when the herd is driven back to shel ter at night. How the Maltese goat can give the quantity and quality of milk which it does upon this food is a matter of fre quent conjecture and It is out of the question to get anything but thin and watery milk from cows under the same conditions. An average goat produces four and one-half pints of milk per day and the animals cost from $lO to $25 each. No special effort seems to be made by the natives to preserve strains, but, nevertheless, the Maltese goat manages to keep up its reputa tion for looks and productiveness. Storekeepers report that the extra quantity, together with tue superior quality, of Defiance Starch makes it next to impossible to sell any other brand.
