WAR ON PIGS. Germany lias declared war on pigs. She intends to slaughter them at the iate of 400.000 a day until ;iie has "hacked a way through'' 20,000,000 of thein.

The pioblem of feeding this stock in war tunc is. insoluble, ior in times oi p^ace Germany imported GO. per cent, of the lodder she required. The pigs can now be kept alive only by en tienc'.iing upon the country's supplies of potatoes and rye.

ST. JOSEPH'S NOTES. Jack Webb was the pick of the 36 in the Brigade v. St. Jo sephs match. I have never seen him to better ad vantage before. Bill Gannon made the pace "hot" on Saturday, and always proved himself equal to the occasion when called upon. M. Spalling played his best game for Saints, he was always doing good work for hi s side whether placed or roving. "Bung" Finch, in the sticks, was like a stone will, he marked and kicked with his usual brilliancy. Mick Baughurst and Jim Bentick both played good football. Mick was responsible for two goals. Steve Seamer played with plenty of dash and determination. "Feathers" Kneale gave us a bit of his old form on Saturday. "Feathers" marks well and always uses his head. Finlayson and J. Connelly were a hard pair to beat when playing half back.
