■9 ; Management of Brood Sows fjSß =0 In the selection of brood sows far too little attention is given to choosing those that are likely to make quiet and easily managed dams, says the Farm er. Nothing in live stock lines would seem more undesirable than a brood sow restive and more or less cross, es pecially at the time when she is nurs ing her progeny. It may be said that it is not possible to be quite sure when choosing dams which have not yet been bred as to whether they will be cross or other wise. There is a measure of truth in the statement. Nevertheless, if one is working from day to day with a litter of pigs, if possessed of that observa tion which the owner or feeder of swine should have in order to make a marked success of the work, he will notice a difference in the tameness or wildness of the members of the same litter. This of course is the outcome of disposition. When a quiet disposition is manifested at so early an age that disposition is likely to remain. On the other hand, should the young sow show a marked tendency to shyness and nervousness these things are also likely to characterize her as a dam. As soon as the brood sow with her first litter shows any disposition to crossness she should be discarded at the earliest convenient time, addition to the element of danger that injury may come to the attendant such an animal is much more likely to destroy her young by trampling on them or In some such way than a sow with the opposite disposition. It should be remembered that this quality is he reditary. Quietness, therefore, is much more likely to characterize young sows bred from quiet mothers than those bred from mothers opposite in their In disposition. A Prize Winning: Boar. Essex bogs are generally supposed to be rather small, but this boar, a first prize winner at eleven fairs in a recent season, is big enough for any one, says ' \ j. j I 0 'V// ÿ' is* YEARLING ESSEX BOAB. American Agriculturist. His owners, A. C. Green & Sous of Indiana, have been breeding Essex swine for many breeding years and find them very profitable. They mature early, being fully equal in this respect to any of the smaller breeds. They are quiet, easily kept, produce pork of excellent quality, es pecially adapted to a select trade or to family use. They cau be marketed at almost any age. The animal pictured weighs 550 pounds.

A well established fact In connection with feeding bogs and that applies with equal force to cattle and sheep is that a young animal makes better use of Its food than does a mature one. In other words, the sooner a hog is made ready for market up to sik or eight months of age the cheaper the pork j can be produced. This has been demon strated time and again, and still many people will persist in continuing to feed long after the most profitable feed- j Ing period has passed.—Oregon Experl ment Station. i Idaho Real Estate Co. fenced; five roomed house, blacksmith house, this place is the best soil, creek $3000 will buy a 40-acre ranch, ali I shop, barn, woodshed and various out buildings, timber to run place, small orchard; part of place can be plotted in town lots.
