An Enthusiastic Agricutuiist.—It will be re membered that some time ago Mr. J. C. Yorke, J.P., read a most instructive pap. r before the North Pembrokeshire Agiic ul; 11: .1. Society at one of their meetings at tin; Com- mercial Hotel, Fishguard, on the hrud of Welsh Black cattle, upon which subjcct. he may weU he regarded as an authoiify. A other paper will be read before the sane soc e*y 011 Thu sday afternoon next, at the same place, by Mr. Edward Perkins, Peny: gwarne, whsn the subject will be M.nui and its application." There arc few ii., i who can spea'k with more authority upon this subject than Mr. Perkins. He has be. 1 a practical farmer all his life, and has stuciitd farming on scientific principles. He wis well known for many years as one of, h.. leading agriculturists in the neighbourhood of St. David's, and more recently he has been the pioneer of modern methods of farming in the district of Peneae Some ten years ago he re-, signed the control of his farm in favorr of his son, and many thought tlaat from tlilt' time forward he was going to enjoy a well- earned rest, and that he would henceforth live in retirement. But Mr. Perkins held dif- ferent views, and lie availed himself of this larger leisure to further add to his sto: c of knowledge. He commenced a course at Aber- ystwyth College, and studied chemistry in or der to analyse the properties of the land he had to deal with. He has carried oil expe: iiiients in th's direction ever since, and the fruit of his enquiiing mind is noticeable to-div on eveiy hand, for others have benefited from the vari- ous experiments he has conducted during these years at Pencaer, and many farmers are in- debted to him for the hints lie has given them. Mr. Perkins has nevrv aspired frr public honours, though he has field offices in his time, but his has been a most useful career throughout, and his neighbour- have a'ways lega'ded him as a :trong teadc:' in all matters affect ing them as a community. He is widely iead, and has a large fund of general knowledge. To show how open- minded he is in farming matters, as well .is in everything else, he was at one iime 1 famous breeder of Welsh Black cattle, and took nrizes all over the county, but then, took nrizes all over the county, but then, changing h: opinions, he took to Short- horns, and now acrain he has returned to h's fovn:er favourites, and has once mo; e adopted the old breed. It is expected that what he wi'l have to say on manure on Thurs- day next will be of deep interest to all farm- er: both in the district where he lives and in other parts of the county.
