Mi Yodeya is a question and answer site for those who base their lives on Jewish law and tradition and anyone interested in learning more. It's 100% free, no registration required.

This daf yomi calendar says that Meilah goes to 37, so I was surprised to discover that my digital copy of the Soncino edition of talmud ends it at 22a. This is also true of the copy at halakhah.com, so I'm guessing this isn't just a problem in what was bundled up for digital distribution. (I don't have a print copy to refer to.) The point-by-point summary at dafyomi.co.il also ends early.

What's going on? If there's more to this tractate, where can I find it in translation short of going out and buying a print volume?

There are only 22a pages in Meilah. 23-37 are actually the other masechtot of Kinim, Tamid and Middot. See here for why they were printed all together. –  Double AA May 10 '12 at 2:39
Should I post this ^^ as an answer or should the question just be deleted? –  Double AA May 10 '12 at 2:47
@DoubleAA, oh, thanks! That's very confusing. –  Monica Cellio May 10 '12 at 2:52
@DoubleAA there's nothing wrong with the question. Interestingly, hebrewbooks.org/shas does not have Tamid, but stops at 22A: hebrewbooks.org/shas.aspx?mesechta=36&daf=2&format=text -- you can probably still get it here, though hebrewbooks.org/37968 –  Menachem May 10 '12 at 2:54
@DoubleAA, I've edited to remove what turned out to be my incorrect premise and explain why I thought it had more. Whether this question stands or gets closed as a dup, that should help future people with the same confusion I had. –  Monica Cellio May 10 '12 at 3:15

As @DoubleAA said in the comment, Meilah is only 22 pages. The next Talmidic Tractate is Tamid. You can find the PDF here: http://www.halakhah.com/pdf/kodoshim/Tamid.pdf

Notice that the page numbering does not restart at 2A, but rather starts at 25B.

As @Alex noted in his comment, in between Meila and Tamid are the Mishnayot (with no Talmudic Commentary) of Kinnim. Here is the Soncino Tranlation of Kinnim, although it is not split up by Talmudic page.

After Tamid goes Midot. Here is the Soncino Translation, once again not split up by Talmudic page.
