The fire engines failed to work. The bane of the swine grower is the hairless pig. Little is as yet definitely known regarding this unfortunate youngster. Mnoh. however, has been said anil much conjectured. His presence has been found, under diverse conditions, and upon analyzing conclusion was arrived at that it might bnvo been due to: 1. Turning the boar loose with a largo number of sows. 2. Too llttto sunlight. 3. Too little fresh air. �\. Not enough exercise. 5. Insufficient mineral matter in the food. 6. Too little protoin. 7. Feeding too much barley. S. Feeding frozen wheat. 9. And recently the theory has been advanced that it may be due to a deficiency of iodine in the thyroid gland, that la, the gland in whioh goitre is located. Iu the management of the brood sows now being supplied by the Al lilach bonr is confined in a box stall! oight feet square. No hoar serves more than one sow each day, und that only once. Sunlight, fresh ^ir, exercise and protein are supplied by feeding largely on whole oats thrown broadcast on the ground in such a way that the foed can bo picked up only a grain at a time, and the animals must work practically all day to satisfy their hunger. After a fall of snow, a snow plow is used to clean off a now feeding place. In extrenioly cold weather they are fed in the same manner under cover. Mineral matter is supplied by feeding coal slack in which there haa been mixed salt and sulphur at the rate ot one ton ot �laek, ten pounds coarse salt and ono pound of sulphur. Barley nnd frozen wheat are banned. Iodine is supplied in the driuking water at the rate of five drops to each sow three times per week. Aa the heaviest losses are usually sustained among the early farrowed litterst no sows have been bred to farrow before April 20th.

Reports gave yields of from to a tons per acre of well-cured fodder. The season, of 1017 was not so favorable, on account of lack oi! moisture during the growing season, so that much lower yields were obtained. ; The grass should be cut just before Mt blooms, or even earlier, as it is 'most palatable and has its greatest feeding vsluc before flowering.

Was An Error The adoption of the Hare System of proportional representation vote, m my estimation, was an error liable to have disastrous results. It was adopted at the Edmonton convention in 1917, not by the executive or the board of directors, but by the convention itself. We were opposed to it, but as we had opposed some other measures that was presented at the convention which we deemed to be impractical, and which has since proven so, we did not deem it. wise or expedient to oppose the adoption on the mL\ed with twice the quantity of broken wheat. Tt will be found best to have an extrn man to attend the drill to see that the seed Is coming out evenly. Before going to the field it is a good plan to regulate the seed drill, so as to get the quantity of seed desired on each acre. A good place to test the seed drill is on the Jhard road -where every seed can bo seen. It is advisable to sow quite shallow but d*ep enough to set the seed into the moist earth. Should the soil be loose from cultivation and thoj seed drill, it is advisable to pack the soli before and after the soed is sown. During the first season, H is i floor ot the convention.
