'BREEDINQC fOTESa We hear juist now a good deal about '"Devil's Grip" in sheep, and a correspon dent asks:-What is. it? In reply, it is found in somen strains that there is a wast ing and dip of the back behind the shoul der, and this forms a. patch in which the wool is of inferior quality. .This is. visible by a decided 'dip, and has the appearanie of being gripped, hence the term by which it is known.

TRAITS OF STOCK BREEDING. "THE FREE MARTIN." [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 10 January 1914

TRAITS OF STOCK( BREEDINC, ,"THE FREE .MARTIN." The question of the fertilit:y .of .twin calves is an example of the persistency of a popular delusion. In all delusions, how ever, there is generally a grain of truth, and this grain of truth exists in the often expressed statement, made without quali fication of any kind, that 'twvin calves will not breed." The "free martin" is variously understood to be a heifer born twin with a bull calf, and-the fact is t;hat sometimes this reputed heifer calf is not perfect, and therefore not fitted for'breed ing purposes. John Hunter, the celebrated surgeon, made this popular notion a matter of care ful inquiry, and found that the apparently female calf is sometimes hermaphroditic, that is, born without the essential repro ductive organs, and, not being perfect in this respect, is sterile. From the fact that the reputed heifer born twin with a bull in not fit for breeding 'purposes, it is but a.step to declaring that neither is fertile, and from...

SEPIDilMIC DISEASE:. "NIP IT IN THE BUD." "'It's eatchling"--,tlis is what people say when a malady sprea, amlong tlheimi as lire spreads in dry grass; the plhrase states a fact without explanation, i which is a pity, because if once you understand why "it's catching," you can prevent it catching in steadl of having to cnre it--cure is often im* possible, and is expenJsive. Now you can understandc thie flame run ning- through -grass, but you can only seO t'.e spread of disease by its results, be cause dikease is spread by living germs or seeds too small to see, and so light that air can carry anld distribute themn; the only way to. prevent D)isease Germs "catch ing" is to kill lthem.

CROSS BREEDING OF SHEEP. THE COMEBACK. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 10 January 1914

CROSS BREEDINC OF SHEEP. THE COMEBACK. "We usc.Lincoln rams on merino cwea"s,' Mr.. FuUerton, of. Ponola explains, "and their progeny are known as first cross. On the first cross we use a mreino ramn and the resu}tant progeny are comebacks. 'Ihey are usually good docrs, and beside cutting good fleece of wool they afford an excellent carcase when fattened. Great care should be exercised wlhen the nmerinu ewes were lambing to the Lincoln rart~, as the la-nrbs generally possessed the large head typical of Lincolns. He' would never use aiged maiden ewes for this puirpose, be cause this would res.ult in great mortahlty among the ewes. Four-tooth cwes were the beat, as they apparcently were not so set in th, hoe oe as the older ones. If Romney I\Marsh rams were used instead of Lincolns, the (trouble at lambing was mn-inlrj'sed, and tlhe lambs obbained matur-' ed more quickly, although when full grown sheep the cross from the Lincoln might. be larger.

iVo GE OF AN ANCIENT PAIN, BY LOUISEf CInRARD. [COPYItRIGHT.] . A concert was taking place in the '"il berta's" saloon, and the. strains of music floated out on the still night air. A stoker who lay in a heavy sleep on the lower deck woke with a start, and a curse broke from his lips. What- did she mean by singing there? Had she not done enough already without coming to .mock him now? "Curse her!" he muttered. Fifteen years ago. she had sung that song to him with love in her. eyes. Whom was she singing to now,, to mock and torture afterwards? "I.have a. rose, a white, white rose," the sweet voice rang. - The giant.laughed hoarsely... "I' e.got it still--here with the letter you wrote, Fiona; cursed fool that I am." 'Tihen,. in a. sudden access of fury, "Stop singing, you little devil, or by heaven l'll straigole you!"

THE SHEEP FLY PEST. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 10 January 1914

..THE SHEEP FLY PEST. Sir,-The-following may be of interest to .the astoral community. In treating newly marked, anbls to prevent flyblow, -the necessary treatment . somewhat -differnt from. that required for a. fly-stricken sheep., In the fuirt place, there is nbthiing but clean cuts and sounl flesh to deal with, and the parts to be dressed' are on the ex remities of the fleece. Therefore a imush thicker iil more adhesive mixture is advisable to. prevent ts:being washed away .by the flow of warm blood attendant upon the operation of lamb marking. A, mixture of. Stockholm tar and kerosene, in which tobacco has been boiled (Fay, 2 lb. of to bacco to a tin of kerosene), will be found effec tive in preventing flyblow; or, if tobacco is.not • e'~ed, then equal parts of tar, kerosene and sheep ip. The oil will lead the poison into the fibre, nd the tar (after certain of its properties have been assimilated by the oil and led into the wool) acts as a seal on the tips of the fihre, forcing...
