A good sign of good digestive organs ls shown by a fairly large belly with good yielding sides, a fairly large mouth with thick lips, n good appétit., nice glossy hair, and a skin whi.-.h gives, and feels soft, to the touch. The constitution should be sound. This is implied hy large lungs and a broad and prominent chest, with n great In- clination to drink. Preference should always be given to a cow with small rather than large bones, flue limbs, and n tall line at the base; head small, but long, narrowing towards the horns, which should bo a nico bright color, tailoring finely, small neck and shoul- ders, prominent and dear eyes, and a general feminine appearance.
