At present a claim it made
that there are over 400.000 Ango

Probably the largest dealer
in tho use of mohair in Iho state
of Maine is George B. Goodall,

is chiefly Imported from Turkey
or New Mexico; and yot that
bought by him in tho United
states Is said to equal, whore

Aside from the mohair com
manding good prices, tho meat
ol tho animal, known as either
Angola mutton or Angora veni
son, will always find a ready
marKot at good prices. It js
iruothat tho skins aro of too
delicate a nature to bo used for
leather purposes, but thoy are
used in book blndories nnd aro
always in domand.
Tho average length of the mo

necessary to shear twice each
year. Thoy subsist on a very
little grain in tho wintor and
plenty of straw. They do bet

should, undor uo conditions, bo
subject to restraint.
Tho majority of the Angora
