"When the question of horsG breed ing was being discussed by the Board of Agriculture at its last meeting, the matter of instruction by means of demonstrations by competent jndges on the points of horses and other stock was mentionedt and it was decided by the Board that A. and P Associations and Boards of Education should be written to and urged to encourage this as much as possible. The Board ia sure that there are in every district those who would be willing and able to demonstrate the pointy of the varioas breeds of horses, cattle and sheep, both at country schools to the scholars and on the occasion of Shows which the country youth might be given the opportunity to attend. Student? at Technical schools might have oppor tunities afforded them in like manner, and the Board would suggest that the covered sale rings in vogue in some places might (with the sanction of the auctioneers) be used for this purpose This mode of teaching the points of animals is.an important part of agri cultural education in the United States of America, Canada, Great Britain (more especially Scotland), and other countries. If adopted generally hera, it would, the Board feeis sure, be of great benefit to the rising generation. 1 am, accordingly; referring the matter for the consideration of your Association.—J. G.
