Hogs are allowed to patrol the streets of Warrensburg but for sanitary purposes only. The citizens devour daily several wagon loads of watermelons, and the rinds are cast into the streets, where they would lie allowed to rot and give forth a disagreeable stench were it not for the "porker." His hogship quietly swoops down upon the remnants, and thus, in all probability, cholera, yellow fever, etc., is averted.
|Hogs were free to roam in the streets to eat watermelon rinds and other food waste. This is not Warrensburg but representative of the what is was like back then.|
