But we have been very agreeably surprised. We now have 69fawns, having lost only 6 by cold and accident. During the calvingseason in April and May we kept the herd in a sheltered place at themouth of Sooh ung-wok Eiver, about 25 miles from here. Last August and September we kept a cow tethered near our houseand milked her daily for our own use. Very respectfully, W. T.

One of the cows died frominternal injuries received in calving, and the other was probably crip-pled by our Siberian, so that it had to be killed. The fawn died fromintestinal troubles.
