It frequently happens that n tornado or hurricane will follow a certain course nnd level only the trees In this line, often leaping from place to place. In such cases all trees In Its swath suffer or are Mown down; but where there is a general very high wind and all trees are hit with about the same force It may be noted that the best rooted ones and not those of the strongest wooil survive. Wind resistance of the whole tree has also something to do with the banding character of the trunk nnd branches, for where these give before the force of the storm they permit the wind to slide off. The hickory, above all, will not yield, and consequently receives the hardest strain against Its entire top, whether full leaved or bare. It may be commonly noticed that In a mixed woodland, where a hard wind hns driven, there nre more hickories down thnn any other trees. His Apparent Yearn.

In feeding hogs for the market, as ills. i wiili pay other class of meal larger returns are obtain d when the stock Is as nearly unlfo.m ns possible, and as It Is very prolltalile for ench fanner to breed his own feeders, particular attention should be given to the selection of the original breeding stock. Uniformity is pf primary importance, for to have a uniform crop of nigs there must be uniformity In the breeding herd, and to obtain ihls must be one of the first considerations In selecting Hep original herd. The Saws. The females of the herd may be obtained by purchasing bred sows or gilts safely in pig to a boar ot recognized worth. As It Is often dllUmlt to obt n u sow which has shown herself to be n good breeder by the previous litters she has produced, It Is advisable for economy's sake to pun base brill gilts. These should be about twelve months old, being bred after the age of eight tnontbs, and if possible all should be In pig to the same boar. Here Is the first opportunity to practice selection for uniformity; or not, the sows whether pure-breshould he similar In color, marking, type nnd conformation. The type of the sows selected sbould be the o.ie which the market demands. While there is some variation between the different breeds, it is largely a matter of characteristics, as a good Individual, no mailer what breed It represents, if properly fed and managed will make economical gains. Conformation. In conformation a brood sow should show first of all femininity. Tills Is well marked In the hog If a close observation is made, nnd is characterized by quality nnd refinement In ali parts of the body.

One Ideal must always be uppermost In the breeder's mind, and the stock must constantly approach nearer to that one Ideal In order to make any real progress. It is relatively easy to produce hogs, but to produce uniform hogs, hogs that will build up and advance the breed, requires time and constant effort. The Boar. The farmer who lives In n community where It Is possible to obtain the services of a good boar, and who has only a few sown, will not find It prof liable to keep n male Pimply lor use In his own herd. However. If he has six or more sows, or if it Is impossible to get the use of his neighbor's boar w hen necessary, it will be well to purchase one of his own. It Is often desirable to delay the purchase of the boar until some time after the original female stock has been selected. If the gilts were bred at the time of their purchase, the service of n boar will not be needed until several months Inter, when it Is neeessnry to breed for the second lot of pigs. This Is not only a saving of money nt the time of starting the herd, when expenses are apt to be very heavy, but it ulso gives the breeder time to study the original sows along with their offspring and select a boar thnt will correct their faults. There Is a hackneyed hut nevertheless true expression that the "male Is half the herd." Ha really does represent BO per cent of the breeding stock, and therefore is the most Important individual in the whole herd, but granting that he forms half, the sows most certainly constitute the other half, even though tlielr influence Is divided into several parts. Certainly both halves are etpially Important and neither can Well he neglected at the expense of the other. It is well to select a boar at least POULTRY AND EGGS DISEASES OF TURKEYS.
