Between these two extremes come most of tiie fanners of Western Canada. They have not the situation, facilities, nor inclination to be dalr.y-meti. They have uo longer the free open range fcr cheap beef production, and want more than a calf a year as the product of a cow. In oth*r words, they want both milk and Mitf from their cattle.

The ideal cow for these requirements is a cow of dual-purpose typo and breeding. Such a cow does not need to be able to beat the dairy cow at dairying" nor the beet c^w at beef production in order to be most suitable for her job. She must be reasonably good at both milk and beef production, able to produce either economically, and to live on ordinary feeds without special care or pampering. There can be no doubt of the demand iu Western Canada for the, dual-purpose cow. but what of the meeting of that demand? There are. all over the country, thousands of grade Shorthorn cattle that are used as dual-purpose cattle. Somen! these are reasonably suitable for the purpose, most of them need Improvement In both dairy and beef functions. In the aggregate, however, they are producing both ihres-Qtiarters of the dairy produce of the country and three-quarters of the bee*. They *or:u an xcellent base on ' which to build up a stock of dual-pur-po�* caul* of real merit. The work : wrr,h dual-purpo-w Shorthorn cuttle at Brandon experimental farm has shown that good milk production can i be obtained from these cattle, under \ western conditions.

Needs, Prop. 8th Street S. Here it a report sent to a western farm paper by a well-known Montana farmer and stockman: I wintered over last year 1.30 ewes and 11 wethers. My income from the 141 head wu 11,00-1; besides, I have held J^jack ?,6 lambs. Last spring we savedHhe lowest per reht. of lambs, belpg 97xper cent. Ordinarily we save from 105 to lie per cent. There is no doubt that, for 10 yea re our sheep j ers in the world the present moment the Danish government, is seriously considering the advisibllity of prohibiting the exporta- j tion of perk altogether. j Holland has now little to spare, and \ the supply from Ireland is-reduced by j one-half. ' The supply of vegetable oils is also almost entirely cut off. Italy and Greece havfe little to spare, and Tur-! key and Asia Minor are controlled by the enemy. The Argentine. Australia and New Zealand are not pork producing countries. In addition to this they are too far distant to permit of their contributing much to the meat supply of the allies while the war lasts, because of the scarcity of ships to transport it. To Canada and to the United States, Great Britain looks for a supply stif- j ficient to cover the shortage in the j imports from other countries; but the I supply in Canada in 1917 is '11 per j cent, less than it was In 1916. Conse- j quently it looks as if the burden must j fall upon ihe United Stated-alone un-1. less the Canadian farmer mends his j ways. So urgent is the need for meat | that Lord fthonda has reduced the j meat ration of men and women engag-! ed in hard outdoor labor to two pounds per week, or four and a half ounces per day, and he has notified them that unless they limit-themselves to that amoupt voluntarily the entire country will be put on rations, and the limitation will be made Ampul- i sory. The ullowance to those engaged j In office work is even less. I Think of it: Englishmen, -who arc j classed among the'-heaviest meat eat-reduced to four and , pasture nas cleared us more cioi!�y than our best wheat land. In fact there is. nothing that makes us as much money for the labor expended as our sheep. There i� no questioning'the profit in ahesp raising. Also there 1s no doubting the advisibllity of handling sheep as a means of keeping up the .soil fertilitv.

It must be admitted that there is justice in such a question. That %e are fully protected cannot be claimed. As proof that we are better protected than ve ever were before, we have to offer the assurance' of ,the food controller ihat.,the profits of tho packers will be limited" to two per cent.
