Wo have observed that when pigs aro fed a groat deal on hearty food they arc fond of charcoal I'igs aro often atl'ei ted with indiceUion, nnd tho svlt and charcoal are good remedies. Wo cannot very well mix these things with their food iu tho right proportion, aud moreover, it would wot be best to at tempt to force a pig to eat them unless it wanted to, or else its appetite might be destroyed and harm come lioui tho expeiUiout; hot by mixing thu salt and charcoal together, and putting them In a box accessible to tho pig, thoy will eat no more than required. There is no danger In putting either salt, charcoal r sulphur where the pigs can get them, hut to mix tli. mi in their fed might in jure thoin.uspeelally if any one of them should possess a voracious appetite.
