goodly number of men Interested
in bog-raising attended the sec
ond hog meeting held at the
schoolhouse Thursday eyenlng.
These meetings are under the
supervision of Prof. Burr L.

small portable hog houses" that
may be moved from field to field.
He believes in lots of range for
his .hogs and by using these port
able houses wbicb are on run

to another Is much easier.
The main topic for discussion
was the problem of sanitation.
With the. large range and port
able hog houses Mr. Doerfler
finds the sanitation problem
much easier solved. Many! im
portant and 1 useful ideas and
methods were discussed -and! - all
attending felt well paid for; the
time spent. These meetings-are
