General Note

  • Accompanying note: "Hogs have been very much in the news lately, what with the price of bacon heading up and an 800-pound housebroken hog who is a pet of a Massachusetts farmer, Watson Smith, who lives on the Blountstown Highway, a retired railroad man, also has a pet hog, a 400-pounder who loves boating. His pet, a sow, was not trained to go fishing with him. She just started following him around and getting in the boat until she became a true boating enthusiast. Now, Smith says, if he forgets the porker, she will swim out to the boat, grunting and snorting 'til she's let aboard. She doesn't hold a pole, however."
