I Well; you have seen my Duroc Jersey
Hogs at the “Midwinter” or you haven’t.
If you have you saw something, if you
haven’t you missedsomething.
Now What is the Answer?
D*» you want some? or Don’t you want some? If
you do—how many, what age; what delivery; < present
or future | male or female; bred or unbred; black cr
ginger bread; thoroughbred or catch as catch can?
I hive anv kind you want; any quality you want;
any quantity you want, at any piice you want; and
will have hundreds more ”iu a few minutes” for
Pigs is Pigs
and I cau’t help it.
Now is the time to buy or place your order for
future delivery. If you don’t want to pay the price

er was a "thoroughbred" gentleman, aud whose
mother, (according to scandal) was a “Scrub-Lady.*’
In other words, one-half Duroc Jersey and the other
i| half "just dear pig." I have a mini tier of such aud
I want to get them out of mv system, and the ladies

further assvn ation witli them.
Ilf von just want cme or two to raise for private
consumption, these will do aud are cheap

Do Your Feet Ever hurt?
If you could look inside of your shoe with your foot
in it, you would see trhv. The sole of your foot lieiuls,
the sole of your shtk> bcuds scarcely at all.
Ninety-five out of every 100 cases of foot suffering
can be traced directly to stiff soles. Their constant fric
tion is what brings hard, callous placet, what irritates the
delicate nerves and tendons and makes your feet draw,
The Tenderest Feet Are Comfortable in
the Red Cross Shoe
Its sole is flexible. Though of regular thickness, it
fiends with the font. Not a move
ment is hampered, not a muscle re
stricted. The moment you slip it
on, you notice its wonderful ease
and suppleness. Come ill. Beud
it. Walk in it.
It doesn’t cramp, bind or ‘‘draw ”
the foot—it fits like a glove. Try
it ouce and nothing could induce
you to go back to stiff sole shoes!
