[Photo] 52~29 THE SHANGHAI CAB AGAIN. A farmer carrying his pig to market gives the unoccupied seat in his carriage to his produce. Comfort is perhaps pretty evenly balanced between the pair, for pigs in China, as elsewhere, are long-suffering as well as lazy animals, and do not mind being tied up in all sorts of apparently painful postures, provided only they are saved the trouble of locomotion. Though universal throughout China this pig would be a curiosity in England, and more than one of his fellows have carried off the prize (for ugliness we assume) at agricultural exhibitions.
