Calgary, who has charge of the enforcement of this Act in this H. McMillan, head of the sheep and goat division of the Dominion government livestock brAich, was in the 1 city Saturday in confetehee "^ith officials of the provincial department of agriculture. His present visit to ttie WAst is for the purpose of creating k greater interest in the breeding and growfng of sheep, and he brought with him an announcement of the' appointment by the Dominion department of A. Freeborn as resident representative in Alberta, with special responsibility for the interest of, thd sheep ia-dustry.. i A hopeful view of t)ie! .situation in the Canadian livestock industry was taken by Mr. McMlHUin. While at the present time there was little doing, he said, there was nothing alarming in the situation, and It needed only some steadying influences to bring things back to. a satisfactory and profitable basis again. It was an excellent time, he pointed out, for farmers to buy high-grade breeding stock and to wean out their poorer stock. When Mr. Freeborn takes up his., nevr position shortly after the new,, year he will give his assistance, wherever found desirable, to sheep breeders'who may be looking for better breeding stock, and he will also deal with the better marketing of lambs. In co-operation with the provincial department a series of meetings will likely be arranged In different parts of the province. NEW WORLD RECORD BY HOLSTEIN COW Segis Pletertje Prospect, owned by Csrnatlon Farms, Seattle,-Washington, has established a new world's record for milk produe-tl,ion, displacing Tilly Alcartra, 33,425.3 pounds milk in a year. The' Carnation cow has produced In 327 days 34,277.5 pounds milk and 1,322.5 pounds butter, and i]er owners expect that she will aver- . age over 100 pounds milk per day for the entire year. Indeed, -strong hopes are entertained that she will reach 37,000 pounds >n 366 days. SegIs Pletertje Pnospect Is a daughter of King Segis lOth, and Is, therefore, a sister of the famous Carnation herd sire. Matador Segls Walker.

Farm land has steadily increased during the war, probably reaching the peak this winter. Labor, on the other hand, has trebled in price and has almost been unobtsinable during the past open season. Present Indications now point to easier times ahead. Help Is becoming more available, and as a consequence fewer farms will be sold. The figures below under the labor heading include board. The year 1920 will probably show an increase of 15 per cent. In both columns.

O. A. at Itaannual meattnr btf tktiirday atterhocia tai th� T. M. 0. A. Mr. MoRae said there w�r* throe methods of markettaig at.present under dlaeimiloa; open buying, govom--ment o6ntrol and the proposed farm' �n' pool. He did not thlhfc there was much ipeculation being done at present bat there was probably something worie th the vfay of tiarket manipu-latloB'. This was what made the gov-eriim'eht's refusal to continue th* wheht hoard so siBripni tf matter. He had not seen anything which suited this country better than the open ma ket provided conditions |Were aonaal. Control'Is Solution Uader present conditions, however, the Only solution was govemment.con� troL The wheat hoard wis given the most autocratic power ever vested In. any organisation; In this country. There was nothing they could not do if their wished and they were the first body who had e-4'er been> able to control the C. P. R. It It had not been for thb fact that they had had every facility In the country assisting them the wheat board would* not have niet with the success, it'h�d'achiev,ed..It was In part the'opposition of many farmers themselves and also the opposition of the trade that had caused the, gi^erhment > to > discpntinue the Dealing with the proposed pool, Mr. McRae , said, there was no. similarity whatever'between it and the wheat board. The farmers could not possibly have.'controLof all the facilities as had the wheat board. Would Be Opposed Not only that "but they would be opposed by the financial interests,, the government and by people in other walks of life. If 60 per cent, of the farmers were to be signed up for the pool, hiahy of them would be in districts where they would be out of totich >rlth the farmers' companies and wonld.hav'e to load over the platform. 'How could they penalise these for setting to others? ' ' ' He dl^ not see it was possible to compel any farmer to dispose of hla wheat through the pool. While he would like to. see the proposed pool a success, he could not close his eyes to the difllcuUies with which they would have to contend. Farmers, he declared would do much better to abide by existing institutions until they reaphed the point where they could really control the sale of their grain. If they were not very careful they might destroy the Institution which thoy had built up. In reply to a question rrom Hon. S. J. Latta, as to the, security for the payment of sin advance price, Mr. McRae said he did not think they had any ideas on that point. > chopped stuff �� Lack of dry bedding will soon cyipple a hog.

The ram should not be confined with the pregnant ewes during the winter. It pays to breed quality stock- whether farmer or pure-bred breeder.
