We would ndvise swine breeders to cull more cIom Iv than has been the practice. We think that at least one third should be culled, and if half could be culled out it would be better. We have known breeders who have sold every male in the herd for breeding purposes, even where they got as low as four or five dollars head for them. Tbis is a mistake. It is not only a detri ment to the business, but necessarily lowers the standard. The quality of pigs sold for breeding purposes should be up to a good standard and they should be sold a t a profit above what the pig would be worth for the pork barrel.

They Are K.werta Ml Sssae Llses ea AarrleaJtwrml Work. When one thinks of the importsnt part plaved by bees in agriculture one cannot help wondering why the experi ment stations of the I nited States pay so little attention to beekeeping. do not recall a single station where bee keeping is carried on st all. The Khode Island station has a department devot ed to poultry and bees, but if memory serves, that has been abandoned. Honey bees and the bumble bees are extort iu some lines of agricultural work that men do not very well under stand, and could not succeed in if ih".v tried ever so hard. They do a ery im portant work, aud do it for nothing, boaruiug themselves in the meantime. If it were uot for bees we would uot have large fruit crojss, if we did not ex perience entire failures. At the time when fruit trees are in bloom there are but few insects abroad, awl if the bees do not i-sit the blossoms iu search of honey, the fruit would ueer mature, as it woulu not be pollenized. If it were not lor the work of bees we could not grow clover, and this impor tant i Top would I unknown. Soiuqior tsnl is tuis that large sums of money have been spent to import aees iuto Austraba in order that ekner might be grow n there. Hone; bees follow ciiilizalion and are uuknown where civilized man has not taken up his residence. The; are co ksksMMa with the pioneer, and help him to conquer the wilderness and in the introduction of improved fruits and crops. Kirrv home owner, from the villager to the uonauza farmer, should keep bees, for the help the; are to agricul ture alone. The business of bee-kcep-iiur is nut well understood even by ex- - pcrts and there is a great opportunity for COOa STUta iroill law espeiuueni aaar- tions in promoting a wider knowledge and a greater interest in bee-keeping, an industry that might be indefinite!; extended with profit to those who keep them, and to those w hose field the; ro'im oier in search of kunc .Tanners' Voice.
