Sickly Poland Chinas.
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
