he An Iowaman says that the dogs
" of that State eat enough annually
w to feed 100,000 working men, and
,da counting in the damage they do to
and sheep, the dogs cost the State s$9,
S000,000; while the education of all
•ed the children in the State costs only
he !about one half that sum. Another
loui Western State spends three times
a.. i as much in keeping dogs as it does
u's in educating her children. One
iLtad writer, in nmking up an estiniate of
the damage done by dogs in the
at Northern States and their cost of
d, maintainane, say that it scots us
eri not less than .38,000,000 annually
i to support our dogs, a sulicieut
sat sum to purchase 132,000,000 libra
ries of 200 volumes each, which
itfee be distributed in as
_a may neighborhoods. But unfor
ihi tunately, those among our rural
n of population who are most inclined
yo to keep dogs have very little nec
ow, 'for books.
The sale of the island of Clba to the
ta-i United State. or to Mexico is much
ret talted of in Cuba.
