Learning a Boy's Age.
While the agent was selling farm
machinery at the house, the friend
at the gate held his horse, and a
conversation took place with the
small boy of the family.
With grave incredulity, he was
saying: "Are you sure you are on
ly nine years old? I believe there
must be some mistake."
The boy was positive, but to make
sure: "Ma." he c&lled, "ain't I just
nine years old?"
After a time he ventured: 'Say,
Mister, what made you think I was
more than nine years old?"
"Why." said the stranger, "I
couldn't understand how you could
get so dirty in nine years.
A Good Sire's Influence.
G. S. Benjamin, a leading swine
breeder of Michigan, tits the nail
on the head in the following: "If
you have 6ome grade sows which
you wish to continue," he says, "by
all means use a pure bred boar. His
influence, his effect on one crop of
pigs, if he is of the right breed and
right type will make itself felt in
dollars and cents many times above
the cost He has influence over the
whole herd, while each sow has in
fluence over only a part. ' One of
the important facts to keep in mind
in selecting a boar is that a super
ior boar used on inferior sows will
always raise the standard of the
herd, while the use of an inferior
boar upon superior sows will just
as surely lower the standard."
