In six--months or so, there is a Utter, not less than six pigs. Then, in a short while, the farmer would be able to sell each of tho six pigs in the. litter for what he paid for the sow. For the little amount of money invested; there's nothing to beat.pigs. The supply is coming irp, monthly getting, nearer the demand.

"Why do you recommend farmers to. go in for hogs, when the supply is increasing so rapidly ?" tho intor^' viewer asked, .'(/Because," said the"minister quickly," there, is no good reason why the farmers should not receive prices paid, at Winnipeg for their pigs all the tune.'.: The: mistake at, present is that,a fanner brings a wagon, load of pigs to town without know'n^ -whether there, is a demand for pips on*.that particular day.- If the packing houses and. butchers havfe all .thev require,, only a price beneath that prevailing .in the Winnipe? or Cal-arv markets can be Procured, or else the. farmer has to take, his piis homo again.
