Two of the commissioners held that the board had no jurisdiction, but the third dissented. They all agreed, how- ever, in suggesting to the company a compliance to the wishes of the people, in thn interest of harmony. The com- pany has gracefully yielded the point.

His calves have often taken first ribbons in strongly contested rings, and because they have failed at other times has been mainly for the tv-ant of care and attention. The bull is now at an advanced age, but his remuikable success as a sire remains with him and he still promises great advantages to Borne enterprising pur- chHsei.

Peri Duchess 4th is another cow that claims great re- spect from leading breeders.
