Seeking Home for Pig
Anyone who wants a perfectly
gOod hog, with excellent ancestors,
may procure such by communicat
ing with W. H. Baillie, rural school
superintendent, and paying for the
porker's board bill, amounting to
around $20. The animal, originally
a spring pig, was exhibited at the
state fair by an Idaho man. He
sold the pig to some boys, but the
fathers would not permit them to
take the pig. Believing the ani
mal sold1, the owner returned to
Idaho.- The pig was discovered
three days later in a pen at the
fair grounds, and has been taken
care of since that time by Mr.
Baillie, who reports that the pig,
now a hog, weighs around 250
pounds. A letter received from
Idaho yesterday Informed Mr.
Baillie that lie, could dispose of
the pig and use the proceeds to
pay the board bill. Other pigs
from the same litter are being
sold by the Idaho-man for $75,1
in order to close out nis stock.
