St. Anthony Is th- pntron and pro
tector of pigs, and Stow, In his "Sur

aletit in bis time In the Lonuoa uy.:t

proverb. The officers of the market?
slit the ears of starved pls and thns'.
unwholesome for food; around tin
necks of these tbe proctors of St. An
thony's hospital tied bells, nnd set
tbem loose upon the refuse heaps. It
became the habit of people to feed
thoe pigs, and tb anKuals, acouhlni
a knowledge of their benc.'actuis

or "Ha t a Tantony pig," applied ti
