The place to buy goods is of the men
who advertise.It is an almost invari

by his actions

whether you deal with him or not.

lacerated the tenderest tendrils of our
heart , by refusing to exchange with our

their herds. Mr. Roxby was unable

possible ( , finding the stomachs of the
dead , animals considerably inflamed. He
says that death ensues shortly after the
first ] symptoms of the disease are appar
ent ] , and that the animals become wild
and frantic in their movements.
