It should he well mixed in a small amount of slopsaiid given before other feed is eaten. It the caloino'. causes t:.o free purging 011 the second aay, oeiay uio um-u uuto 101 .. u..- or two. It. does not matter much how the medicine is given, so each pig gets his share and 110 more. It is suggested that the me dicine ba fed to the pigs in small bunches so the greedy ones will not get too much. It will be safest to have your druggist weigh out and put in papers the dose for say each ten pigs, and then feed the medicine to this nuniher at a time.

MR. G. R. AY. MeDONALD AT BENDE MEliR. (To tho editor.) » i should be sufficient reply to Mr. Rob. D. Dixon's letter appearing in vour issue of tho 'J.'hd inst., to sav that lie was 011 v present for a very short time at the commencement of mv meeting at Bondemeer. Surely this admittedly big meeting must have contained some friends of Mr. Moore, hut although I ant accused of hurling 'pure unadulterated political seurrilitv and abuse' at that gentleman, not one word was heard iu protest. If Mr. Dixon had only remained at the meeting to hear what I said, instead of going home to write to the 'Observer, ' it would not have been necessary for nu» to again encroach upon your space. The con tents of his letter would indicate that it was partly written before he went near the meet ing, evidently in anticipation of tilings I would have said had I on*y come up to his expectations of what a Labor candidate should he. To be brief and explicit T cla^s the 'statements contained in Mr. Dixon's le...
