FOR LIVESTOCK .It !s somewhat doubtful whether the grinding of corn for some classes of livestock is worth the labor and ex- pense involved. Tests conducted for ten years at the Wisconsin Experi- mental Station showed an average In- crease in grains of about G per cent, from grinding corn for hogs. The results -for individual years ranged from 11 per cent, loss to 18 per cent, gain. The Iowa station has also done considerable work In testing various methods of preparing corn for hogs, and found that while grinding showed a slight'-Increase in the feeding value of corn for older hogs, such grains did not cost of shelling and grind- ing. Soaked shelled com showed to much better advantage than 'the corn- meal, and also proved somewhat bet- ter than'.the' dry. ear corn. It question, whether WHEAT STACK 34 YEARS OLD .An interesting account appears in "The oi London, of an old Lincolshirc fanner who in 1881 stacked a field of wheat, mid vowed that lie would iiot sell this I wheat until he rci'civcd a certain This price never came, how- during his lifetime, and the stack stood for 31 years, alter which it was threshed by his son. The ac- count in detail is as follows "Thiity-four years ago 3lr. Philip Sclby, oi Aisby, South Lincolnshire, harvested a licld of wheat, and.when the harvest over he declared he would not thresh it until it attained a certain price. What that price was no one ever knew but himself, not even his nearest relative, and about a year ago Mr. Sclby died, tailing his secret with him. The stack contained the produce of about nine acres. On half a dozen occasions, at least, it has been thatched.. Often was the owner twitted by his fellow farmers regarding tlin stack, but Mr. Sclby, a man who always kept his word, was obdurate, and to this day, had he lived, that stack might still he standing. As in the early eighties, however, wheat was worth -10s. to 5ns. a quarter, it docs not seem like- ly that he could have mentally fixed his price at over GOs., a figure that has not been reached since JS77 till the present year. Succeeded in the business hv his son, however, the latter decided that ilho old stack should be threshed, and quite recently, no less than 34 years after it was harvested, this was done, and the wheat was found to he in remarkable good condition. On Saturday, July 24, Mr. Hy. Hell, the Hollcrmill, Grantham, bought the wheat for 60s. per nj., and the threshing yielded about 3 qrs. (24 bushels) to the acre, the wheat teing exceptionally fine. It weighs Ib's. to the bushel. The purchaser had for many years transacted business with the late Mr. Selby, and is partlcular- the difference-In feeding value paid ly results obtained for the labor of shelling and soaking. It is advisable to grind' small, hard grains, as k'nfir, mllo, barley, rye, or sorghum, r.s otherwise a large proportion of the feed may not be di- gested.

Work is often resumed a day sooner than It should be, and results in hundreds ot cars of tough grain arriving at the elevators with all the dockage and other losses that a condition en- tails. Tim farmer likewise who has had to Iced the bundle teams during this period of idleness is likely to become restless, lie has perhaps been watch- ing a stack ot hay gradually disap- pear, ;i wagon load of oats may have vanished by the same route and his anxiety resumed may lead him to consent to .threshing grain that is not lit to he threshed. Where neighbors exchange work in stook threshing, the man who is last on the circuit assumes big risks. Those who were fortunate enough to get threshed before the rain. Can start the plows when wet weather sets in and thereby increase their chances of a good crop the following i year hv conserving the moisture that has fallen, lint he who is last can do nothing. He finds himself siiatain- ing inconvenience and often loss on this year's crop and is unable to ofi- i set it by improving his chances for i that of a year hence. Furthermore, the loss of time inci- dent to travelling from one to two miles every night and morning to help a neighbor stook thresh, more than offset1: all the advantages oi the system even when the weather is good. The wise farmer is he who plans to benefit next year by the untoward weather of this one: This he can do by putting himself in a position to start his plows whenever tre weather is too wet to stack or thresh. It requires system to do this, but it can be done. As soon as the grain has all been cut, biie field at least should be ready to stack. The first field stacked should be "stripped" lengthwise. If it rains that night, the plows can be started the next morn- ing. Plowing v for next year's crop when the ground is in ideal condition for plowing, will do much to allay anxiety to resume stacking before the grain has dried sufficiently to make it safe. If the acreage is too great and the crop too large tq stack, then it is large enough to justify the purchase of a small threshing outfit that will require" no more men to operate than an enterprising farmer can find work for, should the weather make stook threshing impossible or inadvisable. The "big rigs" have many merits. They are all right where the crops arc "of good size and have been stack- ed. They may also have an advantage in'Stook threshing, where crops are large and the weather favorable, but, ho who requires continuous good wea- ther to avoid operating at a loss is sure to meet with, some bitter disap- pointments, and the. farmer who so manages as to 'turn those forces which occasion loss to him this year into agencies foe ptofit next year, is like the turns, by- products to account rather than let them become a hill of expense to him in order to get them out of the way, IMPORTANCE OF VETERINARY INSTRUCTION Veterinary science, in, common with other branches ipf education and instruction, is rapidly, .advancing'in recognition, exactness and usefulness For many long years it was neglected and ignored, 'both in the new and old lands. Approaching the middle of last century, there came ah awaken- and in Bngland.'rpyal patronage waa extended and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons "was eatab ished, or, rather, came into existence by consolidation, for from 1781, there lad existed schools, in which thf nealtn and mending ofva.nlmals receiv etl attention. It was the-consort of good' Queen Prince Albert of Saxe Conurg-Gotha, 'who -of royalty first manifested an'interest in veter- inary science in the Motherland, and rendered .service in helping to remove the seeming reproach and stigma conveyed in once often 'heard "He is only a horse doc- In. the year mentioned, that is in 170V the English veterinary college, btiil doing its good work, was estab lished in Camden Town, -London. In 1865, the. Albert Veterinary College, named in memory of. the late Prince, who died four years previously, was opened, and then came the Roval Col- lege of Veterinary Surgeons, and to-, day the cherished, valued and rare title of Fellow of the Bojal Col lege of Veterinary Surgeons. In pass- ing, it might be "vet- erinary doctors" or ''physicians" would be more appropriate and- c, for hone mending or curing lu mri- Bion.I'forms but a small .part: of the duties the modern animal doctor is called upon to perform, even though bone setters of the "lower creation have proved ot exceeding usefulness in practicing their skill upon the higher order. A long time prior to the establish- ment of tho Albert Veterinary College, the College at Edinburgh had been nil- filUuE its nolrie and it was institution that veterlnism in Canada received its early seed It from there came the late Dr. An- "drew Smith, founder 53--years ago of life Ontario that was the beginning of recognized vet- erinary instruction in Oils country The first class very watil, only lhrfi> voting men having the Spirit and intelligence at the time to recognize that the iloctoiing Of animals was not a haphazard, but an applied and practical science From that time tho growth of that recognition has been gradual, but it is to the credit ot Ca hada that It dins been more, insist- ent and vigorous than In older lands Almost from the provincial government of Ontario displayed help ful interest, and thus aid- ed in the development of luc Strug gltim. but Ineitimnblv useful unit val uabls institution on Temperance street, Toronto, wberii Rich Yet Delicate- Clean and Full of Aroma.

When, lowovor, Home energetic, learned men did conlii to the front in the eighteen-1 eighties, progress speedily followed, I until today French Canadian students I uive at their dlspofial in connection with Laval University facilities on a, par with those that their fellows of English extraction are privileged to possess in Ontario. In tho time to come, it is not difficult to believe thai elementary veterinary education will receive much wider attention and oc- cupy iit least a minor place in rural schools. Of the importance ot veterinary sci- ence, or tho health of livestock that contribute, in rivalry with tho in- stant productions of the soil, the welfare oC humanity, there can be no over-estimation. There is perhaps no greater vehicle for the convey- ance of the disease germ under ne- glect than the domestic creature of one kind that we pet and of another that we devour. AVe caress and hug the dog and cat; we associate with and utilize the horse, and we eat catUe, sheer and swine. They all in their way, if understood and well- cared for, afford health and comfort. If neglected, the life they yield, and are intended to yield to mankind, they confer with equal ease upon pests that deal widespread' dis- seminate ills of a numerous, various and complex nature, and ot an order that is more deadly and universal even than war. It is to cure, check or suppress this tremendous evil, be- gotten of a blessing vastly beyond es- timating that ia the object and aim of veterinary science, that the gov- ernments of Canada, both Federal and provincial, are bending their en- ergies to combat, and that means much, perhaps more, to the well-being of the nation as any branch of sani- tation, yes, and as any branch of pro- duction. In' connection with this subject should be mentioned that under the recently adopted Agricultural Instruc- tion Act, there nas been appropriated a sum of per annum for the advancement of the work of the col- leges to wliich reference has been made There are also In the report of the Commissioner of Agriculture recently Issued by the department of Agriculture at Ottawa, statistics showing the increase of students that there has been, the number progress- Ing annually, while the thoroughness of the instruction given has been im- proved by the changing from a two- year course for graduation to three years.

This quotation is sullici-l ent to indicate the importance oi this i bulletin, which treats of the origin and course, ot the disease and of its prevention and cure. Appropriate plain and colored illustrations add to the value of tho publication. The second bulletin numbered IS lias for its title, "Avian Tuberculos-! is." Dr. I livings, Pathologist, and i A. B. Wickwaroi V.S., Assistant Pa-1 thologist, are the joint authors. It' is hardly necessary to allude lo the importance of cheeking nnd suppress- ing a disease thai alTects alike birds, beasts and man. The authors show that the complaint can be transmit- ted by domestic pets to those who caress them and in the reverse direc- tion. Details oi experiments made at the Dominion Biological Laboratory are given in the Bulletin, which also describes the symptoms, steps in pre- vention that can be taken and reme- dial treatment that can be applied. In both bulletins poultry breeders and all persons interested are invited to send cases to the Biological Lab- oratory, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa, for investigations. A FARMER NA'MED McNISH (Winnipeg Free Press) A second prairie fire has devastat- ed the Herbert district, consuming thousands of bushels of grain which its growers In many cases had hoped would help to feeu the Empire and strengthen her in the great struggle. A fanner named JIcNish, so says the press report, lost all his crop. It was wined out, and he was severely burned tiring to save it. But there was no lament irom McN'ish. He res- cued .his horses from the encircling flames, and drove Ills plow deeo Into the soil of his neighbor's field. Hur- rying on his team he turned over a I it reguai-d that .Itciit his neighbor's, property safe. Still suffering from his burns he went on, and not until his guard bad. saved three neighbors' ciop from destruction did he stop. They found him later, worn out and lying iu agony from his terrible burns. McN'ish will get no D.C.M., hiit'none the less his act deserves recognition. No soldier saving an ammunition train did'more than McNIsh, or took more risk. And the crops he saved will still be valuable ammunition in the Empire's fight He did Mo duty, this farmer named McNish.
