will be tlie outcome of this seemingly

and the sheepmii? The Ka stern ma a

the-c:i:tle to roam tin' unliM ated public

depart. Sbeep may exist in propin
quity with cattle, but tin- reverse is
cot iKissiblc. As In fore told, ca I tie are
stationary, while kccp are lvceoar

sioH'pii'au moves his flocks to grass.
The cattle owner,, with his wild and
scatfri"! protiertr, mar not do this.
He thrives or he gM-s broke in a
singl localitv. The catileiiian is hand
icapped at -every jmint of the nt niggle.
His crop mature' more slowly. To m
cure the lt-t results he must Wait
three or four years till his product is

out of four will cattle accumulate -any
