The' "Best :Breeds of Swine."
I have just'seeu an article in an agricul
tural paper 'saying that the English ob
jected to om hoga because they were too
fat, and the editor advises ns to feed less
corn , and more barley. This is all very
well; but if our hogs are too fat, which!
very much doubt, the way to correct the
difficulty is not' merely by feeding less corn,
but by introducing better breeds and by
adopting a better system of feeding and
management. A large, lean hog does not
furnish the pork or baoon which either the
American or English market requires.
Large boned lean hogs are not scarce. If
the improved breeds are too fat it is be
cause we "do not manage them properly.
We may nave to let them get more growth
before we fatten them. Instead of selling
them at nine or ten months old we may
have to keep them till they are fifteen or
eighteen months old. - Keep them in a
thrifty, growing condition. In the summer
and autumn the food will consist princi
pally of grass or corn fodder ; in the winter
we can feed corn, bran, ensilage, etc. The
point is to keep the pigs gaining; till they
are shut up to fatten. The sow should
have slops or anything that would favor
the production of milk. Feed her liberally.
As soon as the little pigs are old enough
to eat give them some cooked or soaked
corn, or bat or barley meal, with all the
skimmed milk you can spare. Nothing is
bo flrood for little pizs as milk.
Success in raising pigs profitably de
pends upon feeding liberally till the pigs
are three or four months old. Let them
have the run of a grass, or clover pasture
and after the harvest they will do well on
the wheat stubble. The cost of raising in
this way is very little. In the winter they
will need richer food. . They should have
dfv. warm Quarters, with nlentv ot clean
Straw. Where cows or cattle are fed grain
or oilcake, or where the new system of en-
1- i - . i . 1 111 A -
sixage is pracucea, me pigs win, to a con
siderable extent, pick up their own living.
In my case, we give them warm slops twice
a day during the winter. They may seem
to be getting too fat, but that will not hurt
them. 1 like to see them in good condi
tion when turned out to grass in the spring.
And until the grass is abundant and nutri
tious. I should feed the diss nieht and
morning with the same food they have had
during the winter. With good pasture,
Well bred pigs, that have been properly
cared for during the winter, will keep fat
and thrifty with little or no extra food.
They will be in a healthy, growing condi
tion, and can be fattened in three or four
weeks, at any time deemed .desirable.
For such a system of management, I feel
sure that the Essex and their grades stand
unrivaled, inia is because they are so
quiet and so refined. A restless hog, or
one having large bones and large, coarse
ears, will require so much food to sustain
the vital functions that he can not be pro
fitably kept on grass alone. He will need
all the nutriment he can find to sustain his
restless activity. He will have very little
"lean meat," and what he has will be coarse
and tough. The food which should have
produced nice, tender, juicy flesh has gone
to produce hair, gristle and onal. it con
sumers find our pork too iat in other
words, if they find too small a proportion
of tender, juioy, lean meat, it is due not so
much to a corn diet, as to bad breeding and
bad feeding. We have every facility for
producing the best and cheapest pork, ba
con and hams in the world. We have all
the leading breeds of swine in perfection,
and we have an abundance of the best and
cheapest foods, and our packers are not
wanting in science, skill, enterprise or capi
tal. Pig breeding and pork packing in
America are aireaay among our most lm
portant industries, and are destined to at
tain vast dimension!. Joseph Harris.

serious, but it has been greatly magnified
by speculators who wanted to advance
prices. The Department at Washington
reports that it is worse in North and South
Carolina than elsewhere, and we know that
in many portions oi our State there will be
as fine crops as ever. In tact, we have
been told that the crops in the Eastern part
of the State are excellent, and that there
will be corn enough made to bread the
whole State. There is no occasion for a
panic, and prices have gone way beyond
what is justified by the rules of supply and
