to force the Impaling spikes Into the

For the purpose of emphasizing the
sanitary condition of the dairy of the
state hospital at Napa Calif., the Napa
County Live Stock Association held
Its annual banquet In the barn where
the cattb are kept, according to the
August Popular Mechanics Magazine.
Long tables were placed in an area
between rows of stalls, and covers
laid for 120 persons. In the same
room with the banqueters were 200
cows In their stalls. While the men
ate. the cows were milked by the em
