No milk is so nourishing for children as goat's milk.

But if any of our readers should try to encourage uneducated cottagers to keep goats they ought, as Lady Bathurst suggests, and we quite agree, to keep an eye on the animals. No animal will thrive if it is kept tied up in a dark shed and on dirty titter. If those who breed and distribute goats at easy rates recognized their responsibility arising from the fact that goats, like all other animals, have feelings, nothing but good could come of such a distribution. All over the countryside, where cow's milk is paradoxically scarcer than it is in the towns, untold benefit would be done to the health of children by the use of goat's milk—much the cheapest and the beet milk for the purpose.
