Pigs Can Swim Whether rattlesnake can or do climb tree is a mooted question wltb evidence pointing both way. Whether pig oan awlm is settled In the a normative by Fred Webinger of Port Jervi who says that iii th spring of 1875 be sold a email pig to a Matamoraa man who carried the little squealer away home in a bag. In a day or two the man returned and said hia pig waa gone and be wanted another. They went to the pen and there be was with his eight mates, and waa surely identified by- some peouliar markings. The toe was running thick on the river and he must have braved its peril and the cold to return to his native place.' It ia easy to believe that anj sensi ble pig would undergo many bard-. suips to ptkrutso ui iue generous uus- pitality of Mr. Wehlnger, who fed for profit, but it is bard to oonoeive why any well regulated porcine would wish to leave the cleanly comforts of Matamoraa to live near the railroad in Port Jervi.
