A man on the South American plains is said to fce worth not so much money but so many head of cattle, and it is his pride to add to the count. He keeps a regular'census of hisherds by perforated boards into which peg3 are stuck. Some ranches have their walls almost covered with these boards, and the master will keep pegging them up as if he was engaged in a game of cribbage with nature, ad constantly winning. As a rule each peg represents a single animal. We only found one ranch where the count was kept with pes for the thousands, ...
