On Treatment

A little further advice concerning the treatment of hogs when penned

for fattening; hogs should be penned on rolling ground if possible;

they fatten better and consume less corn; they should be salted twice a

week. The way to salt is as follows: If there is no decaying stump in

the pen, haul a rotten log and pour salt on it, and the hogs will use

all the salt and waste none; and the demands of nature will have them

use just enough and no more; this preparation will save 2-1/2 bushels

of corn to every hog, which is $1.00--quite an item where you have a

large pen of hogs. Salt your stock hogs in the same way. When you have

used Stephen's Remedies one year, you would not be without this

knowledge for any small amount, for your hogs will be healthy and

prosperous. If the reader has only one hog per year, it will pay him to

buy this book in relation to the breed of hogs. I don't know that I

could enlighten you on this subject, for the world's attention is

directed to that information, and perhaps, reader, you are as well

posted on that subject as your humble writer. For the western country,

as a hardy and profitable stock of thrifty hogs, the Berkshire mixed or

crossed with the Poland China, would be my choice, but every man has

his own notions concerning the breed of his stock. The main point is to

keep them healthy. Please fathom these instructions, which will cost

you no more hard labor.

Now, reader, the Author has endeavored, in his plain and simple manner,

and in as few words as possible, to explain the cause of Hog Cholera,

its effects, symptoms, and its cure and prevention, which have been

demonstrated by the Author, and not only by him but by divers others

under his instruction.

Before the Author wrote this book, he sold these receipts at from

$10.00 to $50.00; but seeing the great loss of labor and perplexity in

relation to Hog Cholera, and the pressing necessity throughout our

land, alone induced the Author of this work to write a book and set

such a low price on it as to enable every poor widow, that has even a

pet pig, to be in possession of one as a security for its health.
