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.
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

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.

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
