In this .case, th cattle destroy trees, jjrass and t?av dens. The owners would far rather have ,-iivn cash in each and every instance, man to have had the injury done. Take the case of a tree for in stance. It is carefully watched and watered. I here was some expense to the planum,' of it, but more time and labor. The owner would not have the tree destroyed for any atnomit of money, because he wants shade and the killing of the tree de stroy probably the labor fit two or three years. Money won't pay for the damage done. The stock nwnet then advances the theory that the property , owner should fence his property. Well, this is all ".-lit as far as it goes. It is true that he can fence his property if he so wishes, and possibly it would be better. Put here we arrive at the onchision reached before. District, makes it imperative .Charity .-it-ain.

No, again. We have got to get together and look at the Citizen advocal- this thing fairly. The itizen firmly BLAZE IN BAKERY Fire in Mixing Room ofDiremerPIaceCauses Slight Damage Trinidad, Colo..
