It is easy to see thatit would make a great difference to us to be withoutthese two things, so the animal that gives them to usmust be considered one of our most useful servants.Cows live mostly upon grass or hay. They swallowtheir food without chewing it much at first, but aftera while they stop eating, and the food comes up intheir mouths, to be ground up fine and swallowedagain. This is called chewing the cud.

Their flesh, which is called veal,is sometimes liked better than beef, which is the fleshof the full-rown animal.

1 -- SHEEP0SHEeP are covered with a thick coat of wool, whichgrows very long in the course of a year. Early in thesummer this coat, which is called a "fleece," issheared off and a new one begins to grow in its place.Out of the wool is woven cloth, stockings, blankets,carpets, and many other necessary articles.Besides its wool, the sheep gives us fine leather.Its flesh is the meat we call mutton, and its fat, ortallow, makes candles and soap. In so many ways,in fact, is the sheep of service to us, that only thehorse and the cow can claim to be more useful.

THE LAMBS AND THE HENSSI r is v isitin g d a y fo r th e h en a n d sh e is m a k in g a littleScall on the lambs in the barnyard. She is telling themhow somebody comes each day and takes away theeggs as fast as she lays them, so that she goes right onlaying but can never get ahead any. And the lambsare telling her that somebody comes every now andthen and cuts their wool off with a pair of shears. Soyou see that farmyard animals have their troubles justas real people do. One of the lambs is telling thepoor hen that if she laid an egg in the jug, maybe thefarmer's people wouldn't find it.y;!:,^'^ ,,,^,....,^_______- ____ ^S,.

M THE PIGWP t.S, when full grown, aren aout as 1arge as sheep.but do not look to be so because their legs are muchshorter. : They' are not covered with wool as ,sheep,are, but with short coarse hair, called bristles.Pigs are raised chiefly for their flesh, which is calledpork. They are very greedy creatures, and will eatalmost any kind of food. They have a very stronnose, called a snout, which can be used to dig up theground for roots and seeds to eat. They sometimesgrow so fat, whien fed to make them so, that theirS eyes close up, and the can hardlyv stand.
