CORNER SECOND AVE. AND THIRTEENTH ST. 8. � � > , * (Experimental Farms Note). The feed situation confronting the >wine grower during the coming sum-ttier is not altogether a bright one. Standard hog-feeds are not likely to be plentiful, with high prices ruling-. Shorts and middlings, while fixed as to price show no likelihood of a surplus Corn, for some months practic ally unprocurable and in any case too high In price to be considered, may ways be relied upon. For reliability and wide cultural possibilities and from the standpoint of palatabillty, producing power aad resistance to pasturing, red clover should receive emphasis equal to, if not greater than, that given alfalfa. In conclusion, high priced grain and meal for hogs must be replaced, as far as possible, during the coming sumt mer. Pastures, as discussed, form a home grown, palatable, easily available food, that is harvested without labor. The self-feeder combines well with pasturing, and for growing and finishing hogs is peculiarly worthy of attention during present labor scarcity.  EXEMPTION TO FARMERS. > In giving his ruling concerning the exemption of bona fide farmers from service under tho military service act, Mr. Justice Duff, central appeal Judge, writea as follows: "The need for troops cannot be exaggerated. On the other hand tho necessity of maintaining food production is equally pressing. The exemption granted to farmers is granted solely because of the conviction that they are or may be more useful In food production than as troops at the front. Such exemptions are really in the nature of licenses, on the condition that the efforts in the direction of food production of a person exempted are such as to justify the granting of the exemption/' Mr. Justice Duff went on to say that farmers holding temporary exemptions such aa these, must, before the expiration of his exemption, file a statement with the registrar k*. '�>�BBtBBSBBaSBBBBBaatBiaaSBSJBSBlSSSBSI    FIEH FOR FOOD.    PIHi la*a good wholesome, nutrition* food, rich In protein, the tissue-Ulldtng nutrient In food msterinls. It Is  mistake to consider that there Is any characteristic difference between fish flesh and the flesh of cattle or hogs. Pound for pound, there la nearly, if not quite, a* much protein In fish flesh n* In beef steak Fish for food could be substituted Par all ether kinds of meat every day In tile yaar without ill-affects. Mih flesh Is quite as easily digested, that Is, as large a proportion in aa abort a time, as other meats. It is aa irhclesome and capable of suppling the flesh-building proteins of the body. Fish, properly cooked and tastefully served, in which art Canadian women excel. Is palatable, and Its pain tablllty Is enhanced by the variety of ways In which It may be prepared for consumption. Ftsh� Is less expensive as a source of protein than beef or pork. Aa sources of energy beef or pork nre the most expensive foods while cereals are the most economical. But man does not live by hee>f alone; nor by pork,; nor even by fish. No one food material will furnish the nutrients In the propei proportions for adults under ordinary conditions ot active health. Man eat* meals and a well-balanced meal contains tissue-building as well as heat producing foods. With fish at a men), we should eat vegetables and cereals, for the latter are foods that generate heat and energy for muscular work. In a word, the place of fish in the diet of man, ia the same as the place of besf and pork; it supplements cor-eala and vegetables, the most of which, as wheat, rice and potatoes, are deficient in protein, the chief nutrient in the fleah of fiah. Vegetables, with their starches and sugar, furnish fat or fuel to the body more cheaply than pork or fat beef. Is a food digestible and palatlblo; does It furnish nutrients needed in the system in proper amounts: is it reasonably cheap These are the standards by which a food should be judged and not solely by its power to furnish heat. It is the Canadian custom to bny food according to personal taste and appetite. But foods should be bought and eaten with reference to their nutritive value. It Is wise, healthful, economical and patriotic, to change national food buying customs to conform to this highly Important principle. When that is done, there will be no trouble in effecting a national substitution of fish for beef and pork on the tables ot Canada. And this will be done when Canadians realize that eating -food should not be a pander- ing to neraonal tastes but an Intelligent attempt to aid the bo It to perform Its functions mote efficiently in the intorest of Individual and national healthfulnoss and aervlce. Fish Is a perfect food, In composition like beef and pork, very similar in nutritive alefnents, although not so strongly concent rated protein and may be substituted for them in ene's diet with positive benefit. Tlio value of fish as 11 fond, as also tho value or lean meat ns a fond, lies chiefly In (lie protein content; and therefore fish should he vombined wl'h bread and potatoes to mako a well balaucod meal. This applies also to heel anil pork. Fish does not agree with some persons, suggesting nti t Ii in it more than Individual peculiarity. There are per sons who abhor tomatoes. When, however, foods even fish and tomatoes, habitually disagree with � person, hn In well advised If lie seeks out a competent physician, for the nourishment and regulation of an abnormal taste or distaste is properly included In tho practice of medlelno. It is w*ll established that, the different occiiptitlans arid conditions of life demand different Minis and i|iian-titles of food. The man doing heavy f.utiioer work neaititrt's :i comp uativoly I irge, amount or fuel In- reilieuts in his food and enough of the flesh form lng substitutes to make good for the wear and tear or hit body. Theee are all present In the fleet* ef fleh, beef and perk, but not In the reaulsrte ere- portions. Fish and loan meat are deficient In the materials which yield heat aad muscular power, but when fish la supplemented by broad, potatoes and ether vaaotablaa a diet la provided which will abpply all tho demands of the body. It Ms been found that the laborers employed In the flslierlos of Kussla dally consume; from 2t; to At ounces ot fish. Fish with bread, millet meal Ar tea constitute their diet throughout the fishing season with no had results. From all of which It Is clear that no harm but much good will result from a more general substitution Wjf fish for beef and pork. Colonel C. w.

Oats, under ruling and probable future prices, should be used only for the milking sow and for weaned and growing pigs. Only in small quantities should this feed enter into the fattening ration. It has been shown that with breeding stock, whether during winter or summer maintenance, cheap home grown feeds may be largely utilized as an economy and that from such feeding practice best ; results may- he obtained in health and j production. It has been, further, 1 clearly demonstrated that home grown I feeds for summer feeding may eco-; nomically replace a considerable per-1 centage of meal even at pre-war prlc-; es. 1 At the Kxperlmental Farm, Brandon, it wn3 shown by experiment dur-; ing the summer of 1916 that oats, bar-' ley and wheat all stood pasturing well. These were sown on May 17 and pastured ^rom July 5th until early in August. Rape which was slightly injured by pasturing too early, supplied much needed pasturage when . the cereal seeding* had been eaten ; off. Vetches although slow of growth I were readily eaten and stood pastur-'� lug well. Sweet, clover was also late in maturing and oaten only when no other feed was available. It might be stated that beyond a comparison of these crops from the standpoint of palatabllity, recuperative power, and ability to withstand trampling and pasturing generally, no data waa available to show the cost of production one crop against the | other. With these pasture crops a selffeed-or was used to supply a supplemental grain ration. Such practice Indicated that no more than where hand feeding was employed and that economical gains were made at a cost o( !> cents per pound for grain and pasture, em ploying feed price* then current. The method In general reduced the labor of feeding to the minimum. At tho Experimental Station, La-combe, where awlno feeding enters largely into live stock operations, rape and alfalfa have proven moat desirable crops As a result of the average of three tests, rape has shown a slight superiority over alfalfa requiring :i K pounds meal fed supplementally as against 3.1*8 pounds in the case of alfalfa. Kapt. carried 1786.1 pounds of pork per acre as against 1518.9 pounds with alfalfa. The findings at Jjtcombe would warrant tltit recommendation of alfalfa ror early paitture with a block of rape to supply green food for hogs win n inoy ail ale considerable size. Whore alfalfa may be successfully ci-mwi. ihe Hwlue grower would be' well advised in retaining a small block lor Kwiim fuelling purposes.
