Thu author of the liull�-(iii claims that this hiwd i� purer than any of the others inasmuch as its Improvement has been brought nbout entirely by selection of animals within the breed i jlsclf. It is stated to have received little attention outside of the Counties of Leicestershire. Staffordshire, j j;>ml North llniiiptaasliire until about j ! 1870. when the baton cuivrs of Kng-: land comrnenciHl a cauipnlgn ngitliiht I the tlK'ii tpiite fashionable short, fat [ and heavy slioulilerisl pig. which they found quite unsuitable for bacun | production.

The llerkshlre Is stutcd to have nv sumed a fairly uniform .and desirable about the yvur. 1825. It was "at , that time a llm j iiiil animals, a vuluuhlo service is | allonled in teaching the correct Weals i to Ihi looked for in selecting brood' |.ing anituwlH. Tho author ot the Uulr jletin is Mr. ,T. II. Spencer. U.S.A..' l who bus in this work prosontod a |systematic study of swine thwlshould j I e. highly uppreelaloil not only by of the cut worttm nnd web worms, that were attacking the beet crop itt that time. Soma specimens of the cut worm were collected by the pnrtmpnt for experiment, nnd from these It has Ihjoii learned that probably very many of the cut worms in the fields are doolted before spring. Two enemies nre attacking incur, a fungus disease ami a clear winged fly. This fly lays Its eggs (it tho body of the cut worm, In which tho maggots which hatch out from them live till they are full grown and ready to en-tor the pupal stage, when they kill their host and come to the outside and spin their cocoons. These insect and fungus enemies are tho means which nature provides for keeping the cut worms nnd creatures of that sort, in check, nnd in the his-lory of . all iiwoct ravages this Is round to l.o the case, tn the economy of nature every creature has some enemy which preys upon It and ordinarily keeps It within bounds but occasionally it time comes when, through an abundance of food or for some other reason they develop very rapidly and get away from the control of those agencies which keep them In check and they become a plague as they have la this case. As the plague increases so do the parasites, which in n short time arc able to regain tlte mastery, and we have a return %o the normal conditions again. It Is gratifying to note that this is what is happetiiug now and in u short, time the cut worm plague will lie a thing of the past. However, mnny of the cut worms nre left, nnd there nre quite enough to destroy the young l>eel crop this spring unless something is done to 1prevent them. The rtx|>erieniv of last year ought jto tench us the advisability of nt-! lending to this early, and if as soon ins the beets nre sown the pnris J green nnd bran mash is sovn be-I ween the rows or sown broadcast there should l>e no trouble.
