Nels Johnson of Bernadotte furnished an attraction for Lafayette people recently when he had on exhibition a freak pig. The animal had eight legs, four ears, two eyes, a double lower jaw, two tongues, one stomach, one heart, one set of lungs, four kidneys and three nostrils. Four of the eight-legs were located in the rear of the animal and were of the same size. Two of the four front legs were small. The four ears were far below normal size. The pig was dead.
