To thi- nvi'i'iiKf fellow it dncMi't
mean much ti repot t in cold type that
a dozen or mi carload.- of fattened
bogs have been shipped out of a ier
tain town In a iivcn time but when
one Rets down to liia.s tacks arid fig
ures up how many dollar in money
a carload of them hrinir the shipper,
and then considers the po-tcibilitics in
the hK bu.inos for a county like
Bryan it looms tip a. a ureat potcn-
uun ministry lor uryan county peo
ple. As a matter of cold fact theie have
been exactly t-ixty cai loads of hoj;s
i!.ipped to packing hou.se centers
from Durant since .lammty first,
this year. (!ood authority av.s that
forty cars of them have lieeti shipped
by one Durant man.
Estimating that these hojfs aver
aged only lU.'i pounds apiece, one
hundred head to the car, we see that
three-fourths of u million pounds
of hogs have none out of here in two
months. Multiply this by nine cents
an average price for hoj?s of that
size during these two months and we
find that they brought at least $07,
600 in hard dollars.
Even at this rate, with only a few
people in the business of shipping
hogs this would bring $105,000 an
nually into the county.
Now, suppose that two-hundred
farmers and small stockmen in the
county were growing surplus hogs
and fattening and shipping them, a
few years would sec the county get
ting more money from its hog crop
than it ever did or ever will get from
$ cotton crop,

I earance--Read the "Pay l'p" Suit
A plan has been winked out by
the directors of the Durant Memor
ial Hospital, under which it is hoped
to lie able to avert the foreclosure
of the $1S,(I()(I mortgage against the
property which action is certain to lie
taken in the near future unless the
Holder ot the mortgage is given some
sort ot satis taction. The directors
are calling a shareholders' meeting
to be held on .Mai eh 11 to decide
the question. The plan, generally,
is to lease the hospital to the high
est bidder, and apply the rental de
rived to the payment of interest and
some of the principal of the indebtedness.
There is no disagreement in the
family atioul one thing, and that is
