Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 28, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT THE LETHBnroCE DAII.Y HERALD FRIDAY, DECEMBER 27,1918 INTEREST TO THE FARMER (By Chwles E. Saunders, Ph.D.,) Dominion Corealist , in Farmers' Advocate.) There is prolmbly a little of tlM> i old yarn nbont tho (liacoTer.r ot viabla soeAs in a mumniT-cuso in iSRypl luia been used a host of times, but the public saems nevor to tiro of it-in splto of tUo tact that H has been pruvod be-yond all doubt that the genuine wheat associated with mummlCB t�nnot grow. The extreme limit for the conservation of vitallL.v in wheat is somewhere about ten (or possibly twenty) yeure gambling spirit lurklne in every one of !

Tlie duty of c\cry man row is to provide b living for himieU and ht. : > > > > : ; ? ? ? ; > .Swine are subject td several parasites external and internal. Of the first class the most trotiBlesome is the ordinary hog-house. These insects are re.=pousible for such unthrittness and DOor gains; are an advertisement ot the unobsei'vant eye or carelessness of the feeder, and are iutolerable in that unless the infestation is of long standing, they are fairly easy of eradication. Methods of Eradication: 1. Pigs may be dipped or sprayed w^ith any good creolin or coal-tar disinfectant, made up as per directions accompanying the preparation. 2. Coal oil or kerosene is used by some. Though effective it has a blistering action and should be avoided. 3. Fuel oil is highly recommended. Experiments with it at Ottawa proved it efficient, but slightly irritant and leaving the hair of the pigs in a dirty, discoloured condition. 4. Crude castor oil is non-irritant, soothing, and tjuite destructive to lice. Where procurable ittorms, possibly the best application tor this purpose. At present, the price of castor ^oil is too high to permit of its use tor such purposes. Paraffin oil (low grade) as now used in the herd- of swine at the Central Experimental Farm, has proven non-irritant to the skin and quite effective as an insecticide. It is cheap, easily procurable, aad colourless. 6. Apply disinfectant washes (creolin, etc.) with a brush, brotim. spray-pump, or in the ease ot the large herd, by the dipping method. Apply oils with a cloth or more conveniently still by u.sing a large oil can with a handle and long spout. File a short .section from off the end of the spout to the amount delivered. Apply a streom of oil over the neck, shoulders and along the back. The heat of the body will cause the appli-j cation to spread over the body. A large number of hogs can be treated conveniently and quickly by such means. 7. Repeat the application after ten days to destroy the lice or nits. 8. If pigs are seen to be badly in-feiited, a thorough clean-up tit the premi.'^es would be indicated, using a strong creolin spray over all. Intestinal Pa,rasite� Of intestinal parasftes the round worm i3 much tho more common. In most cases examination of the smaller intestine of slaughtered pigs will reveal tlio preHence of a tew large white worms. In small numbers they appear to cause little inconvenience to the animal; a considerable infestation will a marked falling oft In general condition. Young pigs so affected, arii ihia, stunted and lacking in,vigor and thrift. Severe infestation will frequently cause intestinal Inflammation or stoppage, resulting in death. Cause Where pigs are kept reasonably clean, and supplied with fresh water, the danger of infestation Is small. Filthy surroundings together with stagnant or foul water usually predispose to such parasitic infestation. Treatment ful to every .100 pounds weight, after fasting the animal for twelve hours. This may be mi.xed in the feed and given for three successive days. Follow this with a good purging ot Gpsom Salts. LONDOX.
