in connection with one particular branch of the fiirmer's business, and to point to oettain dangers whioh may arse from tbe existing phenomenally high prioes now being realised for his sbeep and cattle THE MEAT MARKET. In dealing with this subject it's necessary to take a wider view of our position tbao on? whioh only regards our own markets and the ordinary rules of supply and demand as »ff noted by them The meat trade in these days Is world wide, and for many years it has been recognised that our home supplies of meat have ceased to be the ruling fantor governing market prices. Before, the efore, ventoring to advooate or protect against any particular line of action for British farmers in connection with tbeir live stock, we must cast our eyes over the whole meat trade world, for by that means only is it possible te form a reasonable estimate of the pros' peots of fltook-farming in tbe years whioh lie immediately before us. In doing this we desire to ascertain what has been tbe general tendency during the last few years. Has there been a constant growth of meat im ports to this country; and, if so. has tba increase kept pace with the growth of our population? The answer to these questions is that, while the imports have steadily increasd, they have actually fallen off in weight per head for the British people. Thin is a significant faot in itself, but there are others of e\en greater weight in this inquiry. A few years baok the British market was virtully the only one open for the surplus meat supplies of tho world, a splendid monopoly thus aoouing to the British consumers, but a seemingly fatal one to the British farmer, wbo appeared to be hopelessly undersold on his own markets.

The prpaent war nffeots every class and every individual in the country in a greater or lesser d>grae. but few seotions of the community have more at stake than that whioh is directly interested in the production 0! the people's food. That a great war does inorease the profits of farming will scarcely be denied, but it is equally certain that outsiders have exaggerated ideas on the eubjeot, because they fail to realise that there; is another side to the picture beside that which depiots the high prices commanded by farm produce. They forget a farmer has to buy as well as sell, and also that the time of in. nation caused by tbe war is invariably followed by the time of depression. It always has been so in the past, and history will surely repeat itself in the present instance. f It is, however, the object of these remarks ( to oall attention to what is likely to happen
