[ Finnell of Ann Arbor, left Saline for \an auto trip to Denver, Colo, On | their-machine was a long sign which ■read, "From Ann Arbor, Mich., to i /' ' ] Denver, Colo., and Return." After many efforts on the part oHhis paper, we .have -succeeded in getting a description of their trip. "We passed about a dozen little vil- i lages, killed three chickens, one turkey and lost Mr. Gurk'-s hat before reaching Coldwater, the onfy Michigan ! town of any size through which we' passed, but right here let us say that :* we were in "hot water" many times j during the* trip. Of many little | j towns through which we passed, Cold-! : water,'Mich., and, Laporte, Ind., our j • next, stop, showed evidence of thrift. '** and economy—houses-small* but heat- •■ ■ly painted, lawns well kept, • thrifty looking • gardens, and SALINE'S NEW POSTMASTER Short Sketch cf Successor to A. M. Humphrey. . John Lutz, the newly installed postmaster of Saline* was born in Lodi township, February IS, 186-. In 1866 his parents moved on a farm in Saline township where he has since resided and made a. success in that calling. After reaching his majority he took an active part in the Democratic party. He-was elected'highway commissioner of Saiine township in 1892 and 1S93. In 1901 he'was elected supervisor of his township, which position he held for twelve years. He served as chairman of the board of supervisors in 1904 and 1905. In 1904 he refused the nomination for representative to tbe "legislature from this district.

A-3 haven't yet discarded all the good old! things for the fads and fancies of the] present day. Laporte is a very modern I city, clean -wide streets, well kept j. stores, modern public buildings and i schools, and commodious hotels.: Just outside of the city is the fa"rm of Belle Gunness,, the arch-murderess. Our morbid curiosity tempted us to drive out to this farm, reaching there just about dusk. It certainly presented a wierd, gruesome aspect wilh its j deserted buildings, boarded windows, I yards and fields overgrown with weeds | and thirteen empty graves. It certainly gave us all the "willies.:' ' "At Valparaiso, Ind., we were held-} for speeding, but a plausible argu- j ment and credentials from our home ! cities saved us from getting more than | a reprimand and the hand • of good ] fellowship. Through the most parts : of Indiana there are thrifty farmers, - good farm buildings, fine school- ] houses and the best highway of any.) state through which we passed. Tliey j are corn farmers right in Indiana, and ! thej' certainly have tbe'soil for it. "Mr. Longfellow being interested in j the Saline.creamery, we visited the! Elginr 111., plant. This, however,! was a disappointment to us, being more of the office center than the real big creamerjr plant we expected to see. "We "spent one night in Chicago. Auto tourists find it hone too easy to■! pilot a machine through this big, i noisy city, with its elevated above, the J cable below, trucks, autos and street; cars on the level, and the people hur- ' rying, hurrying in. a mad rush to reach the end of time. We who -live} in the small quiet cities of Am. Arbor J and Saline fail to appreciate with what! pleasure and safety we travel our t streets. ; "The farms through Illinois, that is ; the best ones, were largely under corn,> more lowland and not as good roads • as Indiana. - i "We-crossed the Mississippi river at] Clinton, having gone this distance i without having a puncture nor a mo-1 merit's delay on account of our machine, having only four punctures Irom Ann Arbor to Colorado Springs. From Clinton, la., we went to Arcadia where we left our car four and a half days on account of the roads, it having rained a few days before. The soil is gumbo and it is just impossible to travel over these roads while wet. While waiting for the roads to dry we took the train ior Omaha, Neb., where they were celebrating their annual Aksarben—this is Nebraska spelled backwards. Thousands of dollars are spent on display each. year. The floats-were beautiful, one being "The Landing of Columbus." "The Dove of Peace,", which was an auto entirely | covered with natural white flowers es- ' cepting the eyes, which were two American Beauty roses, and all kinds of j industries were represented-by floats. } The night parade was electrical 'floats i being connected to the trolley wire and thej- were gorgeouslj' lighted. At the same time they have the Omaha State Fair, Pure Food Shows, Etc. At . the butter show Mr. Longfellow was \ called to the platform and he| paid Michigan many, high eompli-j ments during his twenty minutes' [ talk. We think-he convinced them * there were none better than the "Pride j oi Saline." "After spending four and' a half days here^we returned- to Ar-"" cadia after our car. „ L '■ (Continued next weet) he was his party's nominee'for county clerk, but was defeated in the Eepjib- lican'landslide of that year. He was been a member of the Democratic county committee for the past twenty years. He served his school district as director for-twenty-two years, having resigned the position last July. Urged bj' his friends he entered the face for postmaster of Saline. He received his commission for the office last Friday and entered upon the duties of the office Monday and will endeavor to serve the patrons of the office witli courtesy and promptness. Mr. Lutz is married and has iour sons, Arthur J., who is attending the M. A. 0-. at Lansing, the others at home. Can't Afford it. Can't afford what? A lecture course ticket!

They, "derived their name from having a solid foot like a mule or horseT" They have duclaws on. the side of the foot, same as.other breeds. The origin of the Mule Foot Hog is not certainty known. Aristotle, the Greek philosopher, described them 2260 years ago. It is believed the Mule Foot" Hog came from Africa. It is certain that they are not freaks or sports and have" not been produced by any kind of cross breeding with other species. They were, bred extensively in England by Lord Eeagh. 100 years ago, brought'to America from Europe or Africaand drifted westward through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois and Missouri before the Civil war and is now a leading breed in many parts of the country and. is-giving entire satisfaction wherever they are given a fair trial. • The Mule Foot Hog is a vigorous, active, growthyi good natured and a nice looking hog.' The sows are verjr careful mothers, heavy milkers and raise large litters of pigs. The pigs are strong and active at birth and grow rapidly, making the first 200 pounds at a verj' low cost. They are easity fattened at anj' age and the meat is -of the very best flavor and quality. The Mule Foot Hog is one of the large breeds. The sows, generally weigh 400 to 500 pounds at maturity and the boars are 100 pounds larger. They usually can be made to. weigh 200 pounds at six months, 300 pounds at eight months old. Young sows usually .farrow from six to ten pig? the first litter and eight to twelve from plder ones. The size of 200 litters in one .herd' was 1629 pigsj 91 of these were first litters. Visitors always notice the kind disposition. They are very tame and easy to handle. Thejr are a very hardy hog and are not subject to diseases as other hogs. Breeders are frequently asked if the Bible does not forbid the use of these bogs for food because they have a solid foot. Therefore we quote from Deut. 14:4,6,8; "These are the beasts which y*e shall eat, the ox, the sheep and the goat. And every beast that parteth the hoof and cleaveith the elift into two claws~and cjueweth tlfe cud among beasts that ye shall eat. And the swine because it divideth the hoof and yet chev/eth not the cud, it is unclean unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their dead carcass." This quotation from the Jewish law plainly forbids pork of all breeds of hogs for food because swine do not chew their cud and the Jews do not eat pork for that reason. However, in the New Testament-we read as follows: Acts 10:10-16—"And he became very hungry,, and would have eaten: but he fell into a trance and saw heaven opened aiid a certain vessel descending unto him. As it had been a great sheet knit at the four cor- hers and let down to the earth; wherein were all manners of four footed beasts of the earth. And there came a voice to him. Rise, Peter, kill and eat. But Peter said, Not so, Loid, for I have,never eaten anything that is common or unclean; and the voice spake unto him'again the second time What God hath cleansed, that call not thou" unclean." This is our excuse for eating common pork and it certainly does not forbid"-; Mule Foot pork which is pronounced bj' those who have eaten it the best in the. world. * "...'. !
