Judging from the following case it looks very much as if impounding of stock has not been carried out in thli shire in accordance with the laws laid down for the gutdance of those who are supposed to attend to the sustenance of cattle placed in the pound. It was al ways understood that the position of poundkeoper was of no use to any person uinless he had a suitable paddock where cattle could be placed after being first put in the pound .yard. According to Judge Moule's decision, once the stock are impounded they will have to remain in the pens and fed regularly, by the poundkeeper, we presume. This will entail a deal of attention, and as the old style. ofremnoving stock to craze is ille gal;, e doubt it .tie 1Isiitio • will 'easily be ...
