entrails are made into strings for fiddles, and their dung
affords rich maiiure for the earth. Tlie female is called
a ewe.
A sheep is a timed animal, and runs from a dog; yet
a ewe will face a dog when a lamb is by her side: she

may also be made of the goat's hair. The skin of the goat
is more useful than that of the sheep.
Goats seem to have more sense than sheep. They like
to rove upon hills, are fond of browsing upon vines, and
delight in the bark of trees. Among mountains they climb
the steepest rocks, and spring from brow to brow. Their
young is called a kid: the flesh of kids is esteemed; gloves
are made of their skins. Persons of weak con-sti-tu-tions
drink the milk of goats.
Goats are very playful; but tliey sometimes butt against
little boys, and knock them down, Avhen they are teazed
and pulled by the beard or horns.
8. The Bog.
The dog is gifted with that sa-ga-ei-ty, vigilance, and
fi-de-li-ty, which qualify him to be tlie guard, the com-
