Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta 3ATLTWAT, NOVEMBER 20.1920 i'HE LETIiBlUpkE KEKALD PAGBNINF, OF INTEREST TO THE FARMER E British Farmers Show More Preference for Pure- breda Since i ho war British farmers are iiiuflteti keeuueis lor utr.l'.auig oiore pedigree stock on their holulugs than they have over done before. By "fanners" I mean are content1 to buy and and "dabble Morclal grade stock and some feeder cattle Olid which' were scrubs. Perhaps these men have raoro money to-day to invest in pedigree slock but I am certain one thing: that tho average British farmer is tmore than ever appreciating the value of IKxltgrec, and realizes that pedigree' Is not merely a, blotch of writing on a piece of paper." A Filer In Pigs A tenant' farmer in .Oloucester- with a penchant. for the ted pig of that have quiie' got >his who has 000 a year Glous- ter spotted sows; in a cart.-look then; to a salo and a year's .rent, An- other, and farmer 'held a sale ot spotted' on his holding, :md with the total Vprbcoeds. bought bis farm. iA village uhoemaker in 'Gloucester witli' one sow "In the book" earned Bufflclent from her pro- duce, to buy a'farmrpf JO acres which him 5400 an acre-.

Give him that garden space with 'his -little regi- ments'of wheat! barley and oat plants drawn up in parade formation, and he is his empire of nature. A child-like, absorbed student'of tho book of piitdopi-s, be requires little. But just suppose the Dominion, instead ot those posthumous monuments'and present medals, lifted all material cares from the shoulders ot thin man and put him in a national garden with all facilities for Improving and.multiplying tho .production of crops iu Canada. -To .which It Is "conveniently answered that the United States might set the exautplo first of subsidizing its creators, Inventors and other true benefactors.
