There is the same period of depression due to the suspension of commerce during the war of 1812-1815, and after that time a very considerable foreign trade. From 1847 to 1871 growth was rapid, the same decrease being apparent in 1852 and the same increase in 1862 to 1864. After 1872 the lowest amount exported was 53,372,366 pounds, valued at $4,196,263, in 1893; the greatest amount was 178,507,564pounds in 1899, valued at $10,639,727, and the greatest value was for 1902--169,671,831 pounds, valued at $14,602,936. Prior to 1847 lard shows more growth than the other hog products. It was also least affected by the war of 1812--1815. In the year 1847 the same increase may be noticed and the same depression in the early fifties. There is also the same increase during the civil war. From 1871 to 1872 lard shows an increase of 150 per cent in the foreign trade, as compared with an increase of more than 240 per cent in that of hams and bacon and over 45 per cent in that of pork.

Lard oil does not figure in the exports until 1855, when 103,200 gallons, valued at $82,945, were exported. The rapid development of the early seventies is also seen in the exports of this product. The greatest amount was shipped in 1879---1,963,208 gallons, valued at $1,037,923, which was also the greatest value for any year. Averages of five-year periods.--The following table shows the average annual exports of hog products from 1873 to 1902, inclusive, arranged in five-year...show more
