Thus large tracts which had been sown, irrigated, weeded and nurtured for perhaps three months perished in the fourth, while all the time the precious Nile water was flowing useless to the sea.
It is further significant that, in the Chillingham herd, dark-coloured calves, which are weeded out, make their appearance from time to time.
