A new breed Is to, be established from a cross between Shires and Clydesdales, and the name' Selected Is 'Amgrey.' According to the writer in me 'uaiiy Mall' who describes the experiment, there Is some prejudice In , England against greys, prejudice which the Americans 'put Sown to laziness, for a grey can keep its looks as, well as a . bay If well groomed.

USEFUL TOOL BOX. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 19 February 1908

USEFDX TOOL BOX. A place for everything, and everything in Its place, is. an old adage. Nothing is more necessary on the farm than i pro per receptacle for tools; one that can be carried about Is more useful than a heavy chest or a cupboard. The dimen sions given in the sketch are enough to ensure room for all tbe tools generally needed. As the most suitable way of joining up the corners, the dovetail joint is shown, but, of course, this Is not Imperative, DOVETAIL JOINT. It might simply ^ be nailed or a tongue and groove joint be used, but bearing In mind that it must hold some fairly heavy tools and stand a considerable amount of use, a strong joint almost be comes a necessity. Hence the best method is obviously the strongest. The dovetail joint, although It looks diffi cult and complicated, is comparatively easy If the method given below Is fol lowed. Yellow deal should be cut from a wide board, but American whitewood or basswood will do. Having secured the timber, cut Jt to the ...

FARM AND FIELD. Draught Horse Points. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 19 February 1908

FARM AND FIELD. Draueut Hone Point*. Hitherto knowledge of the draught horse has not been extensive among the rank and flle'of breeders. Were It so one would not find so much breeding resulting In the production of so man}1 Inferior animals as are met with In the streets, and on the roads. Every breeder should make a study of the con formation of the horse, and refrain from breeding from stallions that are not built on proper lines. The con struction and eet of the hind less Is of vital Importance in the draught horse. A great many of the diseases to be found In these regions are largely due to a wrong set of limbs. In a cor rectly-formed hind limb, viewing It from the side, a line dropped from the hind most point of the sl3pe 6hould strike the top of (he hock and continue paral lel with It until the pastern joint le reached. Speaking to a meeting of horse-breeders on the subject, Professor Kennedy, of the Iowa Agricultural Col lege, said that If the conformation of the leg be such ...
