Items from the Wichita Eagle. Shipments for the last month foot up forty-one cars of hogs, one of cattle, and three of Government stock.
Colonel Maddux bought of Leonard Stout, of Ninnescah, last Saturday, forty-five hogs, the gross weight of which was 18,066 pounds, an average of 401½ per head. They were the finest carload of porkers ever sent out of this market. Mr. Stout formerly lived in Decatur, Illinois. He has been in this valley about five years and he has demonstrated that stock raising pays. In addition to the above carload, which brought him $525.00, he sold 16 head the week before, which averaged 398 pounds. He has 80 head more for this spring market. This is the largest annual turn off, but it is a good one. The man who bought his hogs was his old Colonel in the war. Leonard Stout is a Cowley County farmer and farms for profit.
