by the Bureau of Animal Industry
and published in the current Year

gations, "the average weight of
fleece sheared from American sheep
was less than 2 pounds. By 1900 it
had increased to nearly 5 pounds.
To-day it is approaching 8 pounds.

to make approximately one suit of
clothes. In 1340 it took the wool
of four sheep to ml;e a suit of equal

Better breeding and more rigid
culling of breeding flocks promise

qualities as heavy milk production
in dairy cattle and heavy egg pro
duction by henr. The offspring of

heavy producers and to transmit to
their offspring the capacity for

Chicken Thieve Busy
There is no man in Maupin with
a bigger heart than has Bill .tfati.
If he has anything his neighbor co
vets all that is necessary to procure
that thing is to ask Bill for it and
it will be given. But.when someone,
with burglarous instincts deliber
ately helps himself to Bill's chick
ens, taking them between suns, then
it is that our worthy fathe? of Mau
pin waxes wroth. Bill lost four
fine springers last Friday night, his
pen being entered some time be
tween dark and dawn. Bill has a
grave fpspicion aR to who the thief
is and the fellow is warned not to
try his nefarious practiiei around
the Staats home again.
