In the English county of Wiltshire there lived a woman whose deceased husband had been a pig dealer. After his death it was her habit to remark to chance visitors, without looking out the window: "That's a nice lot of young pigs, those." "Where?" the person present was sure to ask. "Comin down the road," was the Invariable reply. "They're in a cart, and, what's more, there's a fine fat bow among 'em." And it would not be long before a cart would appear and in it a litter of pigs and among them the sow whlcb the woman bad perceived at such a distance up the road. One day a visitor, who saw in this exhibition an evidence of second sight, exclaimed: "How do you do It? It is simply wonderful!" " 'Taln't no miracle," was the modest reply. "I've just got my ear trained ! to pigs—that's all." !
