Miss Gladys Brown, a stenogra
pher in the Foster & Hubbart of
fice In the Safety building was the
recipient of a most unusual present
yesterday afternoon. About 2 o'clock
an expressman delivered a parcel
from which emanated a series of
squeals and grunts. When opened it
was found that the present consist
ed of a three weeks old pig labeled
"Mary." The gift came from
Charles Dunlap of Taylor Ridge and
it is supposed to be a Joke. Miss
Brown took a liking to the little
squealer, however, and determined
to make a pet of It.
ATTRACTS MI CH ATTESTIOS,
The squeals of the little Infant
porker attracted attention from ev
erybody on the floor and Miss Brown
was besieged with questions and ad
vice as to how to care for her ac
quisition. A bottle of milk was
finally secured and when it was pre
sented to "Mary'.' she ceased her
squealing and got busy on the grub.
The let up was not for long, how
ever, and Miss Brown was not a lit
tle embarrassed on the car while on
her way home in the evening. She
carefully wrapped piggy up so that
no one could tell what she was carry
ing but the little present insisted on
being heard all the way home much
to the amusement of the passengers
on the car.
