            Cecil Morrison this week shipped his prize winning registered Yorkshire boar, “Parkview Duke,” to the Invermere Experimental Station, R.G. Newton, the superintendent, having chosen this animal to mate several specially selected sows which have been shipped to him from Ottawa and Agassiz stations.

            Cecil, who is only fifteen, is making quite a success with his stock, is an enthusiastic member of both the pig and calf clubs here, and has been the winner of several prizes.
