Neponset Hogs
Yesterday a lot of five hundred dressed hogs were received from Neponset, Bureau Co., which were generally admired by those engaged in the Pork business. They averaged nearly 300 lbs., and were all well fatted and choice. In the afternoon, H. E. Vogell, of the firm of Huntington, Bros., & Vogell, sold them to the highest bidder, several lots reaching as high as $7.75@8.50. This is the top price paid this season for Hogs in the west, not excepting Cincinnati, Louisville, and St. Louis. Bureau County takes the brag for heavy hogs.
