For a place of its size, the fact cannot be deuied that Saline can produce the greatest number and some of the best breeds in the country. Anything in the line of fine horses or trotters, registered fine-wool sheep, Jersey and other noted cattle, high-grade and mported poultry, hogs of all the best breeds are to be found here, and are sold according to the kind and grade. True it is some stock is sold or offered at good round figures and it is right. A breeder who spends ime, money and years of experence in getting flock or herd in a ligh grade condition and keeps them so cannot afford to sell stock for the same figure as one who takes no care or has but an ordinary line. - Saline Observer.
