Phone 116. ii HicK OL WaKely -The Leading Tinners, Plumbers, Steam and Hot Water Fitters. , is rocognizee about the year. 1835. It wasiat that time a fine appmiring.'anlnMi;' very hardy, of good, sire and length yet without coarseness. Unfortun -atcly owing to a fashion which prevailed some years afterwards, the Berkshire was developed into athiuk short uiiimal with heavy Jowl, thick ueck and fat back. Later this style of hog became unpopular and the attention was again given to develop -ing greater length, symmetry and fleshiness. As nov' found the. Berk-sliire exhibits dcsirabic 'qualiAcationB as a packers' animal. The history of tho Chester-White is extrcmcl.v interesting. It is said to trace back to a pair of whitehogs imported into Chester County, Pa., from England in 181�. This importation made a marked change in the swino of the district with the r.?siilt that the Chester-White rapidly grew in favor. In its early y6ars ii was a fairly lengthy type of hog, but for many years past it has been classed OS a corn belt hog of tho thick beck-fsA sort. A few breeders in Canada, the Bulletin states, have sought by wlection and management to develop the foi-m and quality of th�v animal looked upon with favour by the packers and to some extent they hav Ijcen successful. The Poland-China and Duroe-Jerscy have during the past ton years grown less and l^ss popular in Canada, ac-. cording to the author of the Bulletin In lOOn only eight mcmlicrs of the Dominion Siwine Breeders' Association bre�l I'oland-Chinas and . thros-f' bred I)uroc-Jorsc,ys. With the description of each breed is publishiHl a scale of points by which, with the illustrations of typical ammuls, a valuable service is ullordcd in teaching the correct ideals to U> looked for In selecting breedt | nnimiiils Tho author of the,Bu|-letlii IS Mr J. U. Spoiicor,-B.S.A.i who has in this work presented a systematic study of swine thatshouM l.e higiily appreciated not only by students of aniinal husbandry butby swino raisers in all parts of Canada. Copies of the Bulletm are obtainable by applying to the Live Stock Com-nissioner nt Ottawa. of the cut worniH ami web worms, that were attacking the b��t crop at that time. Some siiecimens of the cut worm were collected by the IK-pnrtniDnt for experiment, and from these it has l)een learned that probably very many of the cut worms in I he fields are dooUeeps it within bounds but occusionnll.v a time comes when, through an abundance of food or for sonic other reason they develop very rapidly and get away from the control of those agencies which keep them in check and thoi- iMJComc a plague as they have in this case. .\s the plague incroases so do the parasites, which in a. short time are able to regaiit tlve mustory, ami we have a return to the normal con� of last j-ear ouRht to teach us the advisabil,ity of attending to this early, and if as soon as tho beets are sown the paris green and bran mosh is sov n be-t w�?n the rows or sown broatlcast | there should lie no trouble. Xo one who has not o.x|)crienced it would believe how roadil.y the cut worms eat this mixture and in every case where it has boon tried it has been found to be a very elToctual remctly. The mash should consist of one lb. of Paris green to 50 lbs. of bran, and it has even been found thai a mix -ture of doubh] the quantity has been effective. The wat'r used for mixing should' be slightly sweetened and it is best alw-ays to mix the bran with the water liefore adding the poison, as unless this is done the paris green sinks to tha bottom. The whole mix-lure should be tnoist enough to stick together, and yet dry enough to (�ruihble easily through the fingers. A sharp lookout should also kept for cut worms in the gardens, and similar methods adopted to de-stroy tliem: ' ' " The wornis cftmo'out to surface to feed at nigl^t ami it is therefore not necessary to bury the bran mash. Some of the largest beet (rowers tried this remedy last yeor andfound the material only cost them about 30c per acre. It'is an eflectuar remedy and. is neither costly nor difficult of'applicatioii and is well worth trying by'every boot grower if he would protect his crop and sake himself trouble and annoyanvc and n deal of extra ''cxiK-nse. r Rogers - Cunningham Lumber Co.^ Ltd. iucc��sors to G�orge Rogcri Builders Supplies of Every Description Wholesale and Retail I ioce� Lumber Shingles Mouldings Building Paper Lime Tar Paper Doors Windows Lath Cedar Fence Posts Phone 23.
