IO110 RAISING IN LOUISIANA.
TIhe Picayune's Baton Rouge corre
1 spondent says: - The State Board of
Agriculture and Immigration is giving
publicity to the hog-raising industry in
Louisiana, and the possibilities of the
extensive raising of swine are pointed
out. The department is preparing to
have printed some of the following in
teresting facts, collected at Plain Deal
ing, in regard to the raising of hogs in
that section :
"T. L. Demoss, who lives about eight
miles from Plain Dealing, sold recently
34 hogs that brought him in cash
$286.30. Previous to this he had sold 27
head that had brought him $213.70,
which mnakes'$5o4 he has so far re
ceived. He had previously killed eight
' head for his own use. He has now 35 to
kill. Besides he has 120 head that he
will 'carry over.
"J. F. Kilgore, who lives near Mot,
sold recently five head, whlich brought
i him $38.45. He had previously sold six
that brought him $56.80, making his
sales amount to $95.25.
"J. V. Kilgore sold twelve head that
brought him $97.20o. Luther Winget sold
six head, that brought 'him $52.20."
The Department of Agriculture has
recently been paying a great amount of
attention to the hog-raising industry in
Louisiana. Several months ago a bul
letin was issued on the sulject.
"AN EXTRAORDINARY MUTE."
A mute man, who could not articulate
a syllable, was recently arrested in New
o Orleans for drunkenness, disturbing the
0 peace and using obscene klnguage. We
5 suppose a mute could get drunk, but
how he could indulge in obscene lan
0 guage is a mystery. Mutes cave a kind
of "finger talk" that few understand, but
it sounds funny arresting a mute on the
charge of using obscene language.
