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.
