organize for the Department of Agriculture a number of pig clubs for boys and girls throughout the Already a large number of places have asked for these but weare finding great difficulty in securing a sufficient number of weaned sows to meet the de We would like to distribute these small weaned approxi mately shf to eight weeks from about May aOth to June 35th and like to hear from any or all of the swine breeders of the Province with regard to such pigs that jnay be for breeds asked for by the clubs that have been visited so far are as follows China and Hamp We might add that what we want is registered or stock that Is eligible for registration and such stock as will eventually make first class brood HOWL At present we can secure all the grade pigs that the i clubs are calling I Will those who have weaned sown I that will be ready for delivery be tween liflth and June 15th kind ly communicate with the undersign ed at stating exact date of birth of together with price F shipping In all cases crates must be supplied by the ship v On account of the se curing a sufficient number of pigs we cannot organize this yearany more pig clubs than tluose that have already applied for and in the case of these it may be impossible to meet all the demands we ars doing our utmost in this if this same work is carried out next then the points that desire ami uiat fan bfi properly cared for
