Mnko Our Ouu llmon
"Tho ludiiin i a butter busineHs
trader than that., J know Indians on
the Vmilalla 1 enervation who
wouldn't think of Helling me a 'JUO
ouud hog at ft cents a pound on foot
($10) and buying it hack from me
at $'.15. Ho is a eopyint. Ho would
lenrn how I did it, and then ho would
proceed to in ill; (i that I'vtru $!ifi him
Ktdf. I know of many Jmlinim who
aro doing that now. It's u in itter of
business with them. And m it
hhoiihl bo with our farmers.
"It is n wimple problem which,
when figured out, makes us fanners
look cheap," confessed Mr. Pcii.'lund.
"Tho farmers of Hoguo Itlvce alley
ran rniHO as fine hogn a can be
i'ound nuy where in tho world, and
they can riiimi them just ns cheaply
iih inoy can in ine Mi-rniii'il com
bolts. In addition to tho hogs, all
thoy need is a lit tin Halt and salt
peter and a Muokehouso; or, if thoy
want to sugar cure them, add a little
brown Hiigar ami black pepper. A
farmer who can't butcher :t hog is
out of place on a farm. A little ohys
ical energy will do ho work.
How Much Ho Can Snvo
"Suppose your fnnnor has 20
young hogs ready for tho butcher. If
they average 2W) pounds each thoy
iijo worth -f 10 npiteo at fi cents n
pound. Tho liO hogs would thus
bring him $1200, minus tho cost of
sole nud dcliwiy.
"Hut hupposo he is wise enough to
iguoro the blandishments of the
jm'cker, who is figuring to get both
iiih nogs and Jus money. Ho would
butcher and bacon his own pork, get
1W own family supply tory cheaply
ami nave over .folio woith of bacon
and hams to mII to his local mart
in town or to his neighbor's. Deduct
a liberal cost for I ho work and ex.

How iiiatiy care to know? Just as

It Is nafo to predict that In 1916
