Mr. Porker is not receiving as
much attention as is due him. A
few good pigs will bring the
price of a bale cotton; yet, it is
generally expected that a ple

Both of these are generally

ing some very simple remedies.
One of these is as follows:
Take half barrel common wood
'coal and beat it up tolerably fine.
To this add one gallon wood ashes

lon salt, one pound sulphur and
mix thorougly. Dissolve one
pound copperas in warm dtater
and add this-mixing thorough.
Put this mixture where hogs
may have free acce, s to it, and
when it is gone prepare more.

you have to do.
One,other thing is considered
of great importance min raising
hogs. Ticks and lice are la con

SThey are not oily a cnstant
drain on the life, but they are
breeders and carriers of disease
as well. Every farmer should
preDare:a cement pit wherein to
keep a creosote mixture.: .Hogs
should be dipped into this as of

fromn ticks and lice. Hogs: should.
have - all the clean water they
want, but should not be allowed
to wallow i~ the mud hole. They
should be. given a little corn
every day and be allowed to
runuon the best pasture pos

have hogs to eat and hogs: to sell.

Hats off to This Man.
"In newspapers we pick up
we find a lot of gush about the
man behind the counter and the
man behind the gun; the man
behind the buzzsaw and the
man behind the son: the man
behind the times and the man
behind his rents: the man be
hind the plowshare and the
man behind the fence: the man
behind the whistle and the man
behind the cals: the main behind
the kodak and the man behind
the bars: the man behind his
whiskers and the man behind
his fists; and evePything behind
has entered on the list. But
they've skipped another fellow of
whomnothing has been said-the
fellow who is even, or a little
way ahead; who pays for wha
he gets, whose bills are always
signed--he's a blamed sight
'nore important than the man
who is behind. All the edit~'s
i and merchants, and the whole
1 cotimercial clan are indebted for
is hevef dead; arid so welake our
Ihats to the man whoe is' ahead."
