Mr, Hitch has only recently discovered a method for the prevention of "cottcd'" wool which causes some considerable trouble in this district. Mr. Stevens Is anxious to have him address\he sheep-J men here.

She must be reasonably good at tioth milk and most i)rofltable he can engage want .'5 a cow- that will produce the largest amount of milk at the le,ast cost. Her beef-produdng iiuatlties ^and the value of her calf he can'afford to ig-jiore.' The beef-prpduclng rancher is the opposite:, with him, the production �t meat is the only,purpose for which cattle arc kept. If a cow has enough j inllk to five her calf a good start, that -Is all that Is required of her. Any additional -milk producing quality ii a source of dan�rer to tha health of the cow, and is not wanted. Between these two extremes come ,jno�t of the farmers of Western Can 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 In Western Canada for tho dual-purpose cow, but what of the meeting of that demarid? There are. all over the country, ihousaads of grade Shorthorn cattle.that are used as dual-purpose cattle.' Someof these are reasonably suitable for the purpose, most ot them need Improvement In both dairy and beef functions. In the aggregate.

One pure-bred Shorthorn oow at Brandon has given 12,800. potmds ot milk In a milking period. Several others have given over 10,000 pounds; the average of the heri In 1816 was over 0,600 pounds. Similar rasnlts have been obtained In othet herds. The dlfflenity, however, i is that there are not enough pure-bred herds producliic herd headers tor the ' general farms. So great Is the demand for young bulls at Brandon that a wait-"t^g list has. boan.'kept for Some years and, It Is necessary to apply many , months ahead in order to obtain a celt. \ Much Injury has been, done to dual-pnrpose strain by the p-actlce of some : beef breeders of Celling their cull bulls j as dairy strain, ^dmetlmes mean, thiii ! ungainly beef stock have been sold as ; dairy strain, though they had no^mllk . production behind them at all. Buyers of dual-purpose stock should ascer-' tain what the stock they propose to , buy can do in actual production before \ investing. Dual-purpose stock should be of good beef types bulls and heifers should not be thlnf but ahoiild show good fleshing qualities, though of necessity heavy milking oows lAee their flesh to quite a degree. /Fhere Is room In Western Canada for breeders who will intelligently produce duai-pur-' pose cattle of merit. Such stock will find a ready market on the mixed farms ot all three pralria provinces. SHEEf* GRIEF Can be expressed best by a monument-otj fitting design andJet-terlng.

Prior to the outbreak of .the war Great Britain took praciibally all the surplus hams and bacon produced by Denmark, Holland, Ireland, Canada and the United States. 'The total amount Imported in 1913 was 664,000.-000 pounds. In addition to the-anlraa( fats supplied through the medium of, hams and bacon. Great Britain con'f sumed large quantities ot vegetable oils, especially olive oil.' These were supplied chiefly by Italy, Greece, Turkey and Asia Mlnot^ At the present time the number of hogs slaughtered in Denmark is forty per cent, less than it Was in 1913, |nd ths average weight ot these Is loss than seventy-tive per cent, of the weight ot those killed prior to the |�:ar; consequently measured in pounds, Ithe output of bacon in.Denmark has been cut in two, ami, the bulk of this la required for home consumption. At the present moment the Danish 'government is seriously considering the, advislbUlty ot prohibiting the exportation of perk altogether. ,* Hojianir has now little to spare; and the supply from Ireland is-reducett by; one-half. ',* ^ ; The supply of -vegetable oils is'al-so almost entirely cut off.' Italy and Gjeece- hav* little to spare, and- Tu'r^ kfey and Asia Minor are controlled by the enemy. .,. ..�ri-r,', The -^Argentine, .^ustralla 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 meal supply of the allies while the war lasts, because of the scarcity of ships to transport If. . To Canada and to the United States, Great Britain looks for a supply >uf-flcien^.to cover the shortage-4n the imports from other countries; btit the supply in Canada in'1917 is 27�per cenL less than it was in 1&16. Consequently It looks fSa it the tmrden must fall upon-^he Unlted-Statekaione unless the Canadian farmer'mends his ways. So urgent Is the' need for meat that Lord Khonda bag reduceti the' meat ration ot men>and' women ^ehgag-ed An hard outdoor labor itoi-tU-o pounds per week, "Or four and'a half ounces per day, and he has notified them that unless they limit'-themaelvos to that amoupt voluntarily the entire country will be put on' rations, and the limitation will'be'madiEi fflmptil-sory. The j.llowanc% to thoie engaged In office work is eventless. Think of it: Englishmen,-^vho arc classed among the^heavl'feat nieat eaters in the world, reduced to four and hal;t ounces per. day. � , ' The hog population ot Canada Is three and a halt million. The shortage in Prance alone, is'th^eb million. With a shortage in Europ'b of thirty, three million hogs.and witli ken and women in Great Britain 'limited to four and a halt ounces of meat per day (including vyelght of bone) how lon^ will It'take ,the~ worl^ to piit itself In a posltl'oii to supply Its normal requirements? And ho�VJong, will it take ma|^. %oOdXthe thirty-three million shortage? . Can prices, \lrop seriously before both of these are done? ' ' V " Many will ask: "Iflftv do we kno\vv that-iwe will get a falK, share of the prices that will rule while this shortage' is being made good, and ^how do w� know that the packers will not appropriate the profits to themselves, leaving thejarmers to wbrlt, tor notli-Ing? � � -^'v V , It must be admittfed that there is justice In such a que^ion. That Ita are fully protected cannot be clalmfjd. As proof that 'we are, better prmocted than we ever \yere before, we have'to offer the assurance'of jth'e food controller that^the profits of tho poqkers win be limited' to .two per tient, Anv profits in excess of tJUi'will-be coin-mandoered by the government and applied In discharge of th>.public debt. Also, Iho food controller ^f the United States has-aaaure'd the swipe growers of that country that he will do his utmost to keep hoij prices obove 15- cents per poiind., As the American market Is opeij to p'anadiana swine gr.owors, the pi-oUucers of thfs, couu-t up for trial hy Magistrate Christie on Friday last onji charge of horso stealing laid by H.

The Indian, Harold Shar padzc hy name, endeavored to sell tltree horso.? to Heiy-y Schotiits nl\d gave a false bill of sale for which ho secured an order tor ?4o on lh& South Alberta Hay Growers. SdiouITz became suspicious soon after tbe Indian left and endeavored to titop tbe order, but he was"too late as tho redskin had already secured Uie cash. He had used the alias Pete Mooncalf nhd when the agent was informed � of th^ transaction he rounded up the young bloods on the reserve and sent a scout to get the horses for exnmina-tioii and it was soon discovered that they were Pelgrfn horses. The accused was Schoultz as the. one who had sold the horses. Ho made no statement at the preliminary and 4tis case will come up in tho district court. Schoultz Is.out $45,"and>-wiU likely want to sea tlie Indftri's permit If ever he tries to buy horses from one again. ' ' Gets Three Months. ,. The.
