respondent in Rural New Yorker, by the
minj-le appliance shown in Fig. 1.
A trough. A, is located beside a fence

ou can then pour in the swill or coarser
fed and distribute it evenly in the trough.
1'he handle C is released and the occu
pants simultaneously commence eating.
The plan shown of Fig. 2 is intended
to prevent crowding. The top of the
trough is divided in separate apartments
by cleats, as shown. They should be mado

lie says: tor market the desired points
are an increased production of eggs and
improvement lor the table, Iliese are
the legitimate grounds which justify
cross breeding. In crosses we combine
quality with size, as, for example, ITou-
dan on Cochin or Brahma, or Cochin on
Dorking. The latter cross is after the
English fashion. They take a good
2-year-old Cochin cock and mate with
six good Dorking hens of a year old.
The pullets of the cross are next season
mated with game, and their produce is
then marketed. Thus they gain size
from the Cochin, and quality from the
Dorking. By the game cross very little
in size is sacrificed, while another first
rate cross, in point of quality, is added.
An Englishman, referring to this cross,
once said: "lneneshis white as snow,
and as savory as any alderraanic gour
mand could desire. It must be under
stood, however, that nothing is gained
by mating the progenv. Cross bred
birds should never be mated together.
When we make the cross we have the
ideal of our experiment;, beyond that
there is a downward tendency. We do
not believe any great success can be ob
tained in mating for increased egg pro
duction. That is, no cross can be se
cured that will give a higher egg record
than that which some of our noted
strains now have. It is principally for
an improvement of table quality that we

With the average breed of hogs that

immediately after the pig is weaned. A
