In view of the many references which have been made to "blind pigs" in the lake region of Lake county, the following, showing the origin of the term blind-pig will be of interest, an exchange saying:
"The incident dates back to 1851 the date of the enactment of the first Maine law. When the law went into effect there were many ingenuous efforts to evade its provisions. A saloon keeper in one of the small villages in Maine rented a small building adjoining his saloon, which connected by a door cut through the walls. In an adjoining room he had a small pig which he asserts was blind.
Whether the animal was totally blind I do not know, but there was no expression about the eyes that indicted that he might be blind. The saloon keeper posted a large plat card over the door announcing that a blind pig was on exhibition within, admission 10 cents. Each visitor then passed into the adjacent barroom where he was treated to a drink without charge. Thus the saloon-keeper could not be found guilty of selling liquor but to see blind pig. From this incident an evasion of the liquor law had become to known as keeping a "blind pig".
