To select food for him, then, is not the thing. Though yon can fatten them on one kind of food, you cannot .do it economically. Take what breed yon like, and it is economy in producing the greatest re sult from a given amount of food that is the point that gives the profit in hog husbandry. The cheapest food, then, is to be sought if it answers the pur pot e. By the cheapest we mean also that which accords with his nature, and whioh he relishes and thrives upon. Corn alone, though the great hog feed made a specialty is not the most ad vantageous. The exception to this is in the West, where corn is very cheap. But even here, other grain and feed added, will produce a better growth of muscle aud fat. All animals require a variety ol iooit, ana the hog is no ex cepti...
