butchers and vory often thoy will command fancy prices Their Southdown lineage will bo apparent in their black faces and legs and most butchers believe yet and with good reason that the Southdown is the finest Blioop in tho world But tho Merino contributoa many noteworthy qualities The lambs get their fatness nnd tenderness from the Merino and this greatly helps the lambs in tho markets

plenty of the mothers milk In a short time tho lambs will take their dry feed from a box or pan nnd then feeding thorn will be greatly simplified Ordinarily it is not necessary to get thetn to take dry food but where it is desir- able to force their growth and make them lay on fat rapidly this method will be round very sati8factory The lamba that grow vigor ously from the first aro the ones that
