^ cows, one-half to fifteen-sixteenths. s ij 7 "1 | 14 high grade steer calves, one-half to fifteen-sixteenths. ^ | 25 common native cows, selected because of good breeding qualities, jjj | A. C. LEIGH, Grenada, Miss. $ breeding season begins. A breeder will do better in sur roundings to which it is accus turned, and a late purchase pre vents this. If a bird is under observation some weeks before j the breeding season, any ail- * ment or defect can be seen in time to apply a remedy. If the purchase is long delayed it may happen that the bird will not ar rive promptly after being order-! ed or will be so out of condition j that another order will have to be made; and a good part of the season may thus pass before a desirable breeder can be had. It is worth something to own a bird and to know that it has long been in good health before the breeding begins. Sheep Preferred S. P Oli'cr, llrookhatcn, M;*.* I have been very much inter*! csted and benefitted by a close | reading of the Ga/.cttc and ex pect to continue my subscrip tion as long as it maintains its present high standard. I am particularly well pleased to see so many of your correspondents advocating a dog tax. There should be m Mississippi loo sheep where there is only one now. 1 have for several years advocated the taxing of each female dog at least $5. Place a tax on the female dogs that will be prohibitive, and two years will settle the dog (ques tion as the average life of the prowling dog does not exceed two years. Lincoln County has thousands of acres of pine land that has been denuded of tim ber, much of it not suitable lor cultivation; but which makes an ideal sbeep range. Uut the eler ,.. .... present, farmer* arc afraid to venture. I visited our Slate capitol .1 few years ago. while the legisla ture was in session and propos ed to the representative* of this and adjoining counties, that if they would pass an effective dog law. I would pcrchase a trio of blooded sheep and raise for dis tribution among the farmers. One representative very plainly told me that be thought every man, black and white, ought to be allowed to keep one or a* many dog* as be thought prop cr. without iet or hindrance. I am happy to state that that gen tleman has not served since a* a lawmaker. 1 find that a great many of our pumic men anu oiucisis afraid to express themselves on this subject. f«»r by doing so they might lose a few votes. It is an uodisputable fact that no reform of genuine merit has ever been consummated, that did not meet with serious oppo sition; and the enactment of .m effective dog law will not prove an exception. I am opposed to the distribution of poison, but do believe in the broad daylight shot gun policy Kditorial note. Have the leg islators retire the dogs or retire the legislators, is the way to make the good tight. Men with desirable dogs will favor the tax ho that their own dogs will be less likely to be poisoned or shot. ——— ' ■■ ♦ ..
