He is a wise farmer who provides
plenty of pasture for his hogs in sum'

summer as much so as the cow, and
will prolit by it equally as well. In his
wild or natural state he lives di-ring

can pick up grass in summer anu
mast, roots and grubs in winter. But
in his domesticated state his choice of
food it more limited on account of the
less range allowed him, and, therefore,
needs something more. Many fanners
