THE BERKSHIRE PIG Like the Shorthorns in producing beeof; the Berkshire in pigs is. the most widely distributed, anid has fully demonstrated its power to accommodate itself to any ex tremes of temperature. More especially id this noted where a sire is required to exer cise a potent influence in cross breeding.

Breeding from pure stock, especially on the side of the sire, requires to be more highly appreciated and under stood to elevate pig raising and easure more profitable returns.

"Eve'ry seasoii we have to crate a:good many pigs for transport,' a eorrespondenit writes, "and we. used: to.have:a great deal. of trouble in getting the pig we w&rited from the feeding lots into the smallerpens, and' from there into thc crate. QOftu it was necessary to drive the pigs around the yard several times, until, pcrhaps, some one of the number was over. heated or injur'ed. Now, instead of having a lot- of?'troibix , we use a device. consisting of' three short. gates hinged together, as shown.n in the sketch.

Is he a genius or a statesman, or a plain ordinary person not likely to give much trouble ? From the speeches made at valedictory banquets given in England to departing politicians who are going out to "preside over the destinies of a great Imperial outpost" one would imagine that a Governor discharged a really weighty and distinguished func tion.
