The Berkshire a Bacon Pig. It may comfort our Berkshire breeders whs have been having bad dreams ever siuca doctrinairies conjured up the sceptre of the Tamwurth as the ideal of the bacon hog to know than the Tamworth's victory is not a foregone conclusion. Henry Stewart, the well-known stock expert, rises in defence of tho Berkshire in the Countky Gentleman in a most omphatic form of BDeech. Tho Berkshire is one of the most profitable of the swine species. There are two sides to every question, and in regard to pigs this applies distinctly. There may be a better animal for bacon than the Berkshire, but surely there is none that will mako the best kind of meat for less cost. We used to hear a gooddeai abouo the graziers, as tho English cail th« grass-eating pigs, but, none stands more preeminently at the front of tho row than the Berkshire, which, given a good clover pasture and the waste milk from the dairy, will, repay any extra trouble and outlay expended on them.

Tho time may come when a newspaper may live simply upon tho revenue derived from subscriptions and advertisements, but no ordinary newspaper in any ordinary town can exist without auxiliary support derived from general printing. Therefore, if you want a good newspaper — ono that will still help your town and district— givo all your printing to the C.ll. Advocate, the only pap...
