A Mineral Point correspondent to the Inter-Ocean Ims the following on a subject of great interest to farmers: Partners in this county have been considerably out this season on their hog production, the hog cholera having beaten them worse than very low prices. (Jeo. W. Cobb, Estj., Super intendent of the Mineral Point Hail road, whose otlicc is at this place, has taken pains to largely interview far mers who have brought in their hogs to ship over his road, and he finds that that disease is confined almost wholly to the pure Poland China breed; he accounts for it, from the close breeding of that species, and not crossing it with native swine. Tic reason far mers prefer the Poland China is in th(> fact that spring pigs, owing to their notable rapid growth, can be made fit for market by the following October, making a big saving of time in feeding ’and realizing. Mr. Cobb has also remarked the same tendency to disease with line breeds id' lions, and it is such that die oil, while the dunghill kind remain healthy. As there is of late years a general ten dency to go into imported line breeds of hogs and fowls, it may bo to the i interest of breeders to look into this matter. Killed by his Own Ham!.
