DON’T WAIT for the State and Federal Governments to hell) you do something any intelli gent man should have done five years ago. Go to greasing the cattle every two or three wreeks, providing you will not (or think you can not) build a new pasture by September 1st, or won’t sell off those scrubs you nowr have before August 15th or Septem ber 1st, and do without cattle until May 1st next year, or can’t take the cattle out of the old pasture and put them in some other field or stake them out. Three parts of any sort of heavy, non-irritating oil and one part of kerosene will do, but crude petro leum is cheapest and best. Jt We are convinced that the South loses largely because of a disregard of the best time for the farrowing of the pigs. No pigs should be farrow ed between June 1st and September 1st simply because they do better at any other time. In our climate no month ia too cold if the sow and pigs have quarters that shelter from w lnd and water. Don’t breed that bunch of ewen to a grade ram. He is not aa good, nor will ho give as good returns on his market value or cost as will a pure bred ram. Kill the scrub sire the users of scrub sires will kill them selves. The hogs should have ample shade these hot days, but they do not have to be supplied with water except for drinking. If water may be supplied for them to wallow in without form ing a mud hole or cess pool we do not object to it, but we would prefer the hogs had no water to wallow in than to lie in it all the time as they are apt to learn to do in hot weather. The mud hole may keep them free from lice, but we prefer the dipping vat for that purpose. Dr. A. T. Peters, Director of the Illinois Iliological Laboratory, saya that mule-footed hoga are not, ns often claimed, immune to cholera. Dr. R. A. Craig, of Purdue PnivorsJty. had already found out the aamo thing. Indeed, the idea of finding a breed or type of hoga immune to cholera is «ne of thpse delightful dreams that Is not at all likely to be realized. MANAGEMENT OF THE BOAR. Usually He is Badly Cared for in the South—He Should Be Kep« in a Lot by Himself, and His Feeding Should Hare Kaperial At tention—Points to Observe for Best Kesults. Tait Butler. Either the best live stock breeders, tho world oter, are wrong, or the farmers of the South are mistaken in their ideas and methods of handling the males kept on our farms. We are told by Southern farmers that it is too ex pensive to keep the boar in a lot by himself. If our experience is worth anything, to keep the boar i» a lot by himself is the cheapest way to keep him. If it costs more In feed and care to keep him up by himself, the results are more than enough better to pay for the extra cost. But with proper arrangements we do not believe it costs more in feed or care than to allow him to run with the sows or in the general pasture, pro viding we propose to keep tho boar in proper breeding condition. It will save feed for both sows and boar If kept free from the excite ment which always results when they are run together. Moreover, the boar is less likely to become vicious or unruly or form the habit of break ing down fences. But the chief ad vantage of keeping the bonr by him self is that he is kept in belter con dition and his produce aro better, and that the time the pigs aro to ar rive is known and the sows are given better care. The sow is kept aU months for her litter and each pig la wertk tak ing some trouble to ear* The writer raised 70 pigs out of 7* farrowed by 9 80W8 one spring, but ha was In the farrowing pen when avery pig was born. There should ha some one on the farm whoso time is not too valu able to give to such matters, but to do this it must be known when the sows are bred. i be boar should have shelter from " i°d and rain and shade to protect him from the hot sun, but with these ends served the cheaper and more open the house the better. His lot should bo of sufficient size to furnish him room for exercise and either this lot or another adjoining should fur nish a part of his feed by growing crops for grazing. Tho fence around this lot should he such that he will i never seriously think of going through it, for every time ho get* out it will require a better fence to confine him afterward. It is useless to ask the average Southern farmer to set aside a lot for the boar and keep him there, apart from all other hogs, but it pays unless the best hog raisers, even those who raise hogs for pork only, are mistaken. It is also useless to ask the average man to refrain from using a boar MEDDLER 3RD 55555 is one of the greatest breeding boars in the world, be breeds the show type that wins.
