It is officially announced that the
duke of Connaught will succeed Earl
Grey in September as governor gen

The announcement that the duke
of Connaught will be the next gover

ceived in Ottawa with great satisfac

ity throughout the empire, it is felt
that the presence of so distinguished

W. Page, director of the United

for Highway Improvement, asserts
that the United States suffers a direct
loss of $40,000,000 annually on account
f incorrect and inadequate methods
in the construction, maintenance and
administration of public roads.
This enormous loss is nothing com
pared with the indirect loss, through
excessive cost of transportation,
which is caused by the burden which
bad roads impose upon the farmers
and others who use the highways, and
this amount, according to Mr. Page's
report, reaches the impressive total of
$250,000,000 every year.
The American farmer is paying two

products to mnarket as the man who

added cost of transportation is known
to be an important factor in the high

HOG HOUSE MADE PORTABLE

of Practical Value to Farmer In
(B~. C. FULLER.)
Swine we originally natives of

mesticated and given proper protec

agricultural -districts. And yet no
other farm animal is subjected to such
uncomfortable quarters; he frequent
ly sleeps in filth and eats from sour
and dirty troughs. Fortunately, farm
ers are now appreciating better meth
ods for shelter and herd management.
With the practice o? these Improved
methods we find the portable hog
house rapidly coming into favor.
Only .the simplest kind of work

able house and much odd lumber can
be worked into it.
The portable house is peculiarly ad
vantageous since it can be readily
moved. The renter who finds It im
possible to provide expensive quar
ters-for his hogs can well afford to
construct portable houses, since they
can be retained as personal property.
Many farmers construct hog houses

without considering the Importance
Of sinitation, ventilation and drain
age. A hog house of any kind should
be located on a high, dry site, and,'if
possible, on soil containing sufficient
sand to drain well. A house located
on an elevation may be somewhat
colder in winter, but it is much cooler
and more comfortable In summer.
Where a large number of animals
are continually housed in one hog
house and fed in or around the house,
the surroundings are sure to become
more or less filthy and unsanitary. If

WAGON FOR HAULING STOCK
Conveyance is of Practical Worth in
Carrying Dairy Cow or Other
Animal Short Distance.
The wagon here illustrated has
proved of practical worth for carrying
a cow or other animal short distances.
The ideas may be adopted by any
practical farmer, who with the aid of
his home blacksmith or wagon maker
can construct a similar wogan, says a
writer in the Farm and Home. The
axle for the rear wheels is dropped by
means of right angles 10 to 14 inches
from the hub, making it truly a "low
down." There is plenty of room in
front for the small wheels to cramp

running well down from the top of
the box. The rear gate can be lifted
off the wrought iron bracket hooks
on which it rests at each of its four
SPRING PIGS QUITE SCARCE
Thrifty, Well-Marked Sows Should Be

Pigs are scarce and high. The cause
is largely due to the high price of
all kinds of grain. The brood sows

least a year before the farmers will
be able. to fill up their pens. The
thrifty, well-marked female pigs
should be saved for breeders.

made much growth. It is best to have
this business done by an expert, as
there is less risk of loss. After alter

OPPORTUNITY FOR PROFIT

Washington.-The opportunities for

Southern railway, showing increased
interest in the production of alfalfa
and highly profitable results in wide

Fort and Stone of Dunleith, Wash
ington county, Mississippi, owners of
a plantation in the delta, reported that
on twenty-eight acres seeded in the
fall of 1909 168.8 tons were produc
ed at a cost of $593.05. They figured
this hay to be worth $15 pcr ton in
the barn, though hay was selling from
$20 to $23 per ton. At this low rat
ing they received a profit of $1,940 on
the twenty-eight acres, the hay cost
ig them only $3.47 per ton. Reports
from the delta show that about fifty
farmers arc now growing alfalfa with
i'ucccss, all having seeded their fields
in the last three or four years.
J. W. Fisher of Newport ini the
East Tenr-essee section, writes that
he is greatly pleased with results,
having averaged five tons per acre,
and fGnding a ready sale at $22 per
ton, but he has found the hay so
good that he prefers feeding it to his
