A NEW DODGE. . Horaekeepers who are ever anxious to procure old hay or chaff in preference to new fodder for their animals are liable to be the victims' of deception in a season like the present, when hay is high in price. Old straw stacks are now in demand in the Country, and etrawwhichbasbeentrampled upon and picked over by tho farm Btoek for two yeara haa been purchased afc alow n^ure ana converted mxo norseceea. r When mixed with a portion of genuine huy and a few handfals of grain thrown in, these resurrected dung-heaps find their way into the market as prime old chaff It is the poor horses that suffer most from this reprehensible practice, and owners who cannot make sure of get ting the genuine seasoned article had better lay aside their qualms against sweet new hay for a time or they are apt to be imposed upon by unscrupulous dealers.
