TAE ADVANTAOE OF HOUNLESS CAT .TLE.-At the exposition in Paris recent ly there was a prize of $500 for the best herd of cattle outside of France by one exhibitor. For this prize a herd of Angus polls took the first, a herd of Angus pollstook the second, and a herd of short-horns from England took the .third. It has been said by short-horn men that the best English herds were not represented there, but the fact Is. that Lady Pigot's herd that took the third premium was as well and fashion ably bred as any in England, and the show of short-horns was most excellent. As a still greater triumph there was a prize of $500 for the best beef producing group embracing animals from all 'countries, and the Angus polls were again the winners. On this class'there was a jury of 31 nembers and out of that number 24 were for the Angus and 7 for tWe short-horns. These are facts that may be taken as conclusive that the introduction of good representatives of this family into this country Is in no sens...
