Myerstown, Pa., Dec. 22 -- Pushing a 250-pound hog in a wheel-barrow for two miles over country roads was the feat accomplished by Mrs. Morris Biechert, a woman with extraordinary muscle.
She had been given the porker for work done for Jonathan Keeney, tenant on Rev. D. U. Wolff's farm, near her, and selling it to Butcher John Bollinger, had agreed to have it delivered at his place at a certain time. But she could get no one to take it there.
Undismayed she obtained a wheel-barrow, tramped two miles from this place to Keeney's farm, shot the hog herself, and loading it on the barrow, reached the butcher shop here before the porker had stiffened.
