Strange as It may seem, practical! ff mutton was consumed In this conn- try a half century ago. The reasons 'for this particular state ff affairs are ninny. In the first place, the rem HfftOf enr was yet unheard of, and .i mutton would not stand MM t llko pork and beef, It could not bo transported to the few markets then In existence. It can he said with conservatism that both the do nnd export trades were de manding bef and pork, consequent l the meal p oduclng sections of our country specialized In supplying these two commodities, while mutton was Ignored Furthermore, II kVOVOl oped areas of th's country offered an HOB t Iff good field for wool pro din Hon Wool, with Its high value per pound, small labor requirement for production, together with tho ease with which It could he transported, made It an Ideal frontier crop. It was very reasonable for the farmers of the partially developed Mldde to emphas'xe wool growing at the expense of other tpyes of farming, which were not so adaptable f the eri.noinlc fOBdltlous of that time In addition, the light, stringy carcasses of the flne-wooled breeds did not pre Kent a very tempting dish, and were not conduslve to Increasing mutton demands Whether Ihe niiiltim I BOOB I H OOOMBd for mutton ff the fO in. mil called the Down MfOdf tO our is a matter of flfOjOftOXS Hut, lievcrthokMB, Jut a tlM farm ers on the high priced lands ot t .
