Don't Be Cruel.
A crate of fowls stood on a truck
awaiting a Chicago train. The crate
was so shallow that not a single
bird could stand upright. If any
one questions the cruelty of this let
him be fastened in a crate where
he must either sit in a cramped po
sition or stand with legs crooked
for hours or even days as fowls are
sometimes forced to do. This is
needless cruelty. The cost of a
deeper crate is almost nothing. In
deed, the shipper would undoubt
edly make money by giving birds a
Years ago it was customary to
drive milch cows at night with a
dog. And if at milking time a cow
failed to conduct herself properly
she was hammered with a stool or
other convenient implement. We
know how that under such condi
tions cows fail to "give down" prop
erly; and the owner is the loser.
Some dairymen have learned the
lesson so well that no one is allow
ed to even scold milch cows.
Thoughtless ones think this is folly
but there is profit in such policy.
Further study shows that even sick
ness, pain, discomfort or worry re
duce nerve force, weight and pro
ducing capacity in people; even so
do similar conditions in livestock
reduce working power or profit pro
duction. People who otherwise
treat dumb creatures cruelly will
learn that they cannot afford to do
so. Apply the golden rule to your
fowls and you will put dollars into
your pockets. Ex.
