GIVE THE RUNTS A CHANCE. "Pigs is pigs," you know. . Some are large enough to crowd the smaller ones, away from the trough." The ones that are in the trough' are the ones that put the : profits in your pockets; but the ones that try to get in and can't are the ones that pick those same .profits out of your poc kets. If the little is evenly divided, you play a - winning hand. Just ^parti tion-off :a corner and put a trough in It and make the entrance just large enough lo admit the. pickpockets. Put the best of the feed in there and you'll find that you'll be. able to come out ahead in the game of "pigs is pigs."
