Arc you aware that the Danish Pork is all the time topping the London market, the largest market in the world? V'
Yet there is no corn raised in Denmark, and still we are told by the corn-producing states that corn grows the best pork. jl Jm
The facts are simply these: That the best and sweetest pork is produced by feeding peas, barley or wheat and dairy products, and this is the '0
way the Danish hog is raised. ;w
For that very same reason our Nectar Brand Hams and Bacon excel in quality and flavor the corn-fed article, as all our hogs are fattened on 1jn
peas, barley, wheat and dairy products in the in termountain country under the most favorable climate for hog raising purposes. H
As a result of this, our hams and bacon are not all "smoke and grease," but they have that well balanced combination of fat and lean, evenly f M
distributed, that has made our products the favorite in the Intermountain and Coast regions. sSl

nif.de in 1 892, at the time of the
world's fair In Chicago He made a
diary of the trip, which continued
i around the world, nnd which is an in
t re-ting piece of travel literature,
displaying shrewd comments of ap
preciation of things he saw and did.
He thought this globe-touring would
especially contribute to his education
as a future monarch.
He also wrote two volumes of Al
pine poetry, and put on paper for the
first time many of the old melodies
of his native Styria.
His admirers insist that his life ;'s
singularly free irom scandal, with
the exception of his infatuation for

therein hangs the interest in the pres ;
ant situation. While she belongs to
bn'e of the most ancient noble fain
i lies of Bohemia, her birth rank is
far below that of the imperial bouse
of the A ustrian Hapsburgs. Under t
the Hapsburg law no member ol the
emperial family can be married with
out the consent of the sovereign.

iwas dropped. He had fallen in love
with the former Bohemian countess,
then maid of honor to the widowed
Crown Princess Stephanie For nine
years this attachment was a subject
of gossip in Vienna, When his un
Ch ihe emperor protested against
plans for marriage, the archduke re
minded him of his previous advice
"I heard "i once say.' he repeat
ed, that In choosing a wife an em
peror should pay no attention to poli
tics and should follow the impulse
of his own heart " This was a chap
ter out of Francis Joseph b own life.
Francis Ferdinand stubbornly re
sisted the nine years of opposition on
the part of the emperor When he
married he answered all arguments
with the reply
