The Wisconsin experiment station
has been crossing- a Shropshire ram
on Merino ewes with good fleece re
sults. The clip is almost as fine as
that from the pure old Merino,

Shropshire. The second cross gives a

heavy lard hog in the western states.
The bacon hog is the profitable animal
for the grower. Small hams and
shoulders meet with readiest sale.
The "Horse Breeder" has this to say
in favor of the trotters: The breeder
of trotters has a great advantage in
one sense over the race-horse breeder.
The horse he breeds that cannot race
can be put to use in road driving or in
other occupations, and thus a market
is provided that repays the cost of pro
duction. On the other hand the race
horse breeder or owner can find no
market for his culls, for they can fill
no usefitl place.
The department of agriculture con
siders the grass question one of great
importance to the people of the United
States. So great, indeed, as to lead to
the appointment of an agrostologist
who is to devote his entire time to the
study of grasses. He will make a
thorough investigation of all the wild
grasses of the country, to see if from
the list some varieties may be suited
for propagation by the farmers of the
country. The grass crop of the Unit
ed States — and pasture—is es
timated at nearly $1,000,000,000 annu
