Twouiy "f those ships win be built In Vicioflii by n ayndlriite of capitnllsta headed by J. G. Price, J president of tho CamerdU-tienoa Mills I ShipbuUdors.

Tipj raising bogs has for long been one o( the most prolUabls branches of the farmins Industry In Western Canada. At Oio pre-ient time the returns from hogs are grcttter than over, while the growin;: bortage of meat ail over the v.-brUl .ensures a safe and iirolltable rg,arket for many years to oome. .Vo'where :�re Die returns safer and greater ;than in Western Canada, where the land Is cheap, where feed crops can * ifce raised In .'vbundance. and where ithe climatic rnndilions are such as to ireduce the risk of to a min;-mum. No cI.iSR of stock brings re-itHrns more qiiiclri>duce spltiidid pork and 'bacon of excellent flavor, which al�ly3 commands the top niarkei price. For growing hogs therq Is no s*iperlor food than Western Canadian oats. whKh weigh np to 52 pounds to the bushel, and contain a large amount of 'njeat-and-a comparatively small amount of hirtl. Kor fattening purposes, barley is chiefly relied upon, and there Is no doubt that, apart from the weight of the hull, harley grown In 'ft'cstern Canada Is equal In food value to corn. y and produces a superior quality of ^nieat. ^ � A typical example of the success-ulhog breeder of 'Wqptern Canada Is K. H. \Vieneke, of SJTony Mountain, ' Manitoba. Mr: '^^'ieneke has been associated with hosr raising practlcal)y since the day -nf his birth ntty-flve years ag^ In a log hut in Iowa, when ho.t: raising was In Its Infancy In that part of the .State. The farm on which the hut was located could then have been bought for SG an acre, and. he says, "it Is but one of hundreds of corn and livestock farnis in Iowa that raise corn and sell hogs." in hog raising in V.'estern Canada. In I'lC fall of IflOS he decided to ^oma to Manitoba, because, to put It in his own words, "I thought hog raising wguld be more profitable there thaula tho more densely populated farming coranaunity of Iowa, which proved to be true.'' Since locating in Manitoba he has been a regular attendant and ex-hibUor at the International hive Stock Show at Chicago, and has won the Orand Championship over all champions of other breeds in the brood sow classes for three years in j succession. ICvery time he (has been., there he has met some of hie old friends who would Invariably ask him Itow he achieved his success In  raising hogs without corn. To this' question he would invariably reply. "You fellflfws feed too much corn That ia why you always have to be on the lookout for large sires to keep up th** �lz� and' stamina of your herda. Our feed Is the kind that pro-ducaa good starchy pigs, with plenty? of ham and a deep side of bacon, which you cannot get by feediiig corn." In addition to winning the Grand Cliami)ionshIP| Mr. Wieneke has aftoi woa thlrty-fout'" champion honors at twenty-four ot the best shows in Western Canada.' ' farmers who breed the quick raa-Kurlng and easy keeping kind .get i their surplus on the market at about five i.o seven,months of age, and they are invariably sold before cold weather. One ot Mr. Wfeneke's neighbors sold his 1916 plga In October, realizing about $20.00 each for them, and he fed them but little grain in addition to good pasture and mangels. That was last year. This year the market Is much better, and considerably . higher prices have been - -....._______/-___1-_____I____ realized. ~ ,�. � - , Barley, ahorts, br^.n, ond mangels, with skim milk. Mr, V.'icacke considers an Idea! ration tor .growlne pigs',, and barley ajid. wheat-ted. or flndly ground screenings, with a few mangols. make as'good a flnlaher as can to had in any country. All these can be produced cheaply-and abundantly In the Prairie Provinces. He always trios to have plonty of pasture, and finds that fail rye maSes the best Jn thft fall and early spring, but for the rest of the growing season alfalfa is the best. lit, 1916 he had a field of alfalfa which averUfed four and a half tons to the acre, and which was cut three t^raes. ro'r,^ those who have no alfalfa he recom-' mends h. mixture of barley and ryo sown at different times, during the summer. He also feeds cbopiied rye to pigs of all,at;es and grow'n hogs varying as to the age of the animal, and finds it one of tijo best feeds, to produce growth .vid V.i'.Tsric! Hog raising has been making lilg mono.v for many farmers in Western Canada this year. To the small farmer they are indispensable, affording hiai n steady Income. Every week prices are rising, and a few Instances of sales made by farmer^ in Alberta this year will be lllumiuat-ing. Ill .\pril last a liumlier of farmers of Bon .\ccord. .\lbsfta. rlubbeil together and shipped a car containing bogs, weighing .IT.-tOO. on which they realized $U,r''6r{.Sl. after payment of .'rcigh! and"'e.tpenses.
