Fred Kreuger says the place to see where the weather of the last weeks has gotten in its work is the stock corrals—particularly the hog lots. He says that he knows of one place where the farmer went out one day to feed his hogs and couldn’t see any of them in the lot. But soon a hog’s nose appeared and then gradually the whole hog emerged and then another and another came out from the depths. Now that man Kreuger is a Truthful Man, but we’ll be dadbinged if we’re going to say you have to believe this story. It’s a free country and you do as you please.
