Veal was very plentiful at  wholesale, and fhere was quite a  .ittl-e pork, but mutton and beef  were yery scarce. ' No changes  were recorded in the prices of meat,  wholesale >or retail. One addition  LO- the retail supply was sume  home made pork sausage, vvm_n  Mr. Gain sold readily at ?) ronis  per pound. Vegetables at wholesale were, the feature  being the rise in the price of onions, which sold at from $2 to $2.56  per sack. Lettuce sold in packages of two bunches at 10 cents  per hunch. Rhubarb quichly so I'd  at ten cents per bunch and cabbage plants sold 'a*t 25v'. cents ' per  bunch. Butter declined Blighlly in  price, 'selling at tw'b pounds for "5  cents. Eggs were very ^plentiful  and sold at 30 cents per dozen at  retail.- Fiah were in larger variety  than usual, though there were no  oolichans on the market,. Sea trout  weighing more than .three pounds  each, sturgeon and white fish were  on sale,, besides the usual assortment o* salmon, halibut and cod  plants and cut flowers. Potted  Tiday'a etarid bad the   first  rose  plants, ranged in .price from 2������c  to $1.50 each and cut flowers sold  at ffom 25 to 50 cents per. dozen.  There was a considerable improvement in the pou'a-y market  totiay and a large number of crates  of birds changed hands, the pre-:  held in check by such predatory insects, but in Canada potato-growers  have not been blessed.with such as-  BiBtance. It 1b to be hoped that the  soldier bug will become as widespread as the potato beetle. Of course,  the multiplication of- the former .is  dependent on the food supply, and  were the .soldier bug to confine itself  to the eggs and larvae of the beetle,  as the latter became reduced in numbers/the supply of'the other would  also fall off. The. result in such a  case Is not complete extermination,  but a successive rising and falling of  the numbers of both classes. In districts whore thecsoldier bug'is fairly  effective, it might be a good plan to  spray the' potatoes once in tho early  part of the season, and leave the subsequent care of- the beetle to the  soldier bug.  Two kinds of soldier bug have coma  to Canada. .The more numerous one  is a dark-colored, flat insect, with  yellowish, black-dotted shoulder piece  and a shield-like marking on the  back. The abdomen is yellowish, and  black-dotted. The adult insect is nearly a half-inch long, ' and in outline  resembles the well-known bitter-bug,  or , stink bug, that the raspberry-  picker learns to,, know by experiences  that suggest lts'hames. The soldier  bugshave strong sucking beaks, about  one-third the length of the body,  which, when not in <use, are' turned  underneath between the legs. It is  interesting to observe their .use of  the beak. Living specimens were  offered a couple of larvae of codling  moth. The movements of the larvae  attracted the notice of the hungry  bugs, one of which ran up to a  "Worm," "raised its'head, to get room  to work  its  dagger-like beak, .which  o-f birds changed uanaj,_ii������ *u������   ������ sunk into its wriggling victim, and  vailing price paid  Dy  Che, dealers   ^^ Mt long ineraptymg the liquid  contents of about one-half of, its skin.  being 23 cents per pound.

Its presence,  In a-wheat sample reduces the value,  of the wheat considerably. - Lands,  that are, badly infested with Darnel  should be seeded to grass. It can be  eradicated by following methods advocated for fighting wild oats. Special  care should be taken not to sow  grains in which Darnel is found. The  seed of Darnel isfsaid to be poisonous.  One authority->ays "The grain contains a narcotic principle which  causes eruptions, trembling and confusion of sight in man and flesh-  eating animals, and very strongly In  r.abbits, but it does not affect swine,  ' horned cattle or ducks." An authority  has pointed out that there are two  kinds of this weed. One with a-fungus  and another without, and suggests  that the former,are poisonous, while  the latter are not.  Sheep and Weeds.  The sheep Is proverbially a silly  creature, and there's no denying it. Is  deficient In brains. It has one characteristic which it pays to remember  and to provide for, and that is that it  is as fond of change of scene and  variety of location as any animal  living. Change Its pasture continually,  even if you drive It back again and  again to where it grazed before not  long ago.  Sheep have one valuable character,  which it will pay every farmer to  note. They will-devour weeds,, even [  when succulent grasses are abundant.  They nip off seedling plants, or the  fresh growing parts and the bloom  of older plants of many of our common weeds, ��������� wild mustard, dock,  thistle, and many others. Keep as  many sheep as can be maintained  with advantage, ��������� it's as good a way  as any of keeping down weeds. the. proper time to getia bar-.;  gain  in   horse blankets.

This is a critical time in  their lives.    The pastures  are short  and   dry,    and   the   flies   are   very  troublesome.

Corn when grown is-now ready  tp feed; and the calves should get, a  liberal   ration' 'of   it,   together   with  alfalfa, and a light grain ration. "Few  grains are relished by calves^so much  as oats.    The skim-mllk supply, may  be falling off now, and, as the milk  ration grow less, other feeds must be.  increased.     Under   no   circumstances  can   the   owner afford   to   limit   the  calves'   ration   beyond  that "point at  which   they   are. making   the'   best  growth and development.   With calves  of the dairy breeds, too much fat Is  not believed to be in the best interest  of the calf, if it is to be kept for milk  ' production, but few skim-milk calves  ever get, over-fat.

If the  young pigs have to) be kept in enclosures make these as large as possible so as to give them the opportunity of plenty of exercise, but give  them a well-sheltered and dry sleeping place.
