other breeds in feeding qualities, es
pecially as grazers.

ters of six pigs each, including the
cost of the keep of the sow for one
u f year, when disposed of at a weight

in pasturing the land with sheep than
in raising alfalfa and selling it.

OF VALUE TO HORSEMEN.
Do you turn your horses out for the
winter? If so, we want to call your
attention to su very important matter.
Horses which have bceni used steadily
at work, cither on the farm or road,
have quite likely had some strains
whereby lameness or enlargements
have been caused. Or perhaps new
life is needed to be infused into their
legs. Gombault's Caustic Balsam ap
plied as per directions, just as you are
, turning the horse out, will be of
, great benefit; and this is the time
When it can be usedl-yery successfully.
1 Qne . great advantage in using this
UHHHnHi
remedy is that after it as applied it
needs no care or attention, but dbes
its work well and at a time when the
horse is having a rest. Of course it
can be used with equal success while
horses arc in the stable, but many
people in turning their horses out
would use Caustic BaLsaim if they 1
were reminded of it, and this article
.is given as ta reminder.
