College of Agricul turc, University of Mis souri. Many fnrmers In the corn belt asst. elate new com with "hog cholera." And the belief Is common lu some lo calltlat that the use of now corn will cause the disease. This may Indirect ly be somewhat true, as the sudden change to new corn Is liable to pro duce a feverish condition which would encourage the thriving of any latent disease germs. It Is undeniable that hoga appear to be more generally afflicted with dis ease about the time new corn Is made use of, Itut an examination might show that such n condition Is rather to be expected. The hogs greatly relish the new, soft, succulent corn, and, If per mitted to do so, will eat enough to change t heir probable constlpullon to acute diarrhoea. This puts them In a condition quite lutotptlblfl to disease. The temptation lo rush hogs off to i market before cold weather should not encourage the farmer to make too sudden n change In his feedlug mntli ods. When the earliest corn is In full rousting ear stage It may bo given, stalk und all, in small quantities with out any change at nr. t In tho usual feeding. As the corn hardens It may be given more liberally, but by a grad ual Increase. Hy the time the corn It fully matured the hogs will have be come well accustomed to It. The Ju dicious use of the new corn Ib purely an application of the Judgment which Bhould prevail In feeding at all times Hogs that have access to plenty of j green patture are less liable to be disturbed by green corn than those - previously kept In dry lots. Where they have pastured on rape or green succulent food of that character, the risk Is greatly diminished. Pumpkins are excellent feed for hogs about to be put on new corn. They supply euc culence, and their teed serve at n vermifuge With the hogi la Unlfty cosmos; , of A.riclillurc.
