DOftS CARRY DISEASE.
Neglected Animals 3fay Become Car
rlcrs of Infect iou to .Farm Ani
Tho dog in Gio country ls a useful
nnd' pleasant adjunct to the farm If ho
ls properly controlled rvnd cared for,
hut when neglected may readily be
como a carrier of disease to stock, in
addition.to gaining opportunity to kill
sheep and destroy gardens and other
property. Dog ordinances, as a gen
eral rule, haye been Intended chiefly
to curb the dog's power pf doing i.iarm
by attacking, biting, killing or run
ning sheen or stock. The part that
ho plays aa a carrier of di?ases to
animals only recently has been recog
nized,'according to tho zoologists Di
the department, who believe that
when i1?!? is better understood; rural

as a mechanical carrier, of infection.
The dbg wihieh runs across an infect
ed farm easily may carry in tho dirt
on his feet the. virus of .this ino3t
contagious of animal diseases to oth

to tho neighboring herds. In infect
ed localities it is absolutely essential,
therefore, to keep all dogs chained
and never to allow i'iem oft the farm
There are, however, many . .other
maladies lu the spread bf which tho
dog takes an acGve part. In Bulletin
200' of the department, "The Dog as
a Carrier of Parasites and Disease,"
it ls pointed oat thai rabies, hydatid.
ringworm, favus, double-pored tape
worm, roundworm, and tongue worm,
are. oftpn conveyed to human beings
in this way. It occasionally happens.'
also Gist Gio dog "helps fleas and^tickr;
in transmitting bubonic- plague or tho
deadly spotted fever.
Hydatid disease is caused by tho
presence. in the liver, kidneys, bram,
lungs, and other organs of a bladder
worm or larval -tapeworm. Bladder
worms are often as largo as an orange
and may, be larger. A dog which- is
allowed to feed on carrion, or the raw
viscera of slaughtered animals may
eat all or part of a bladder worm
containing:numerous tapeworm heads.
These tapeworm (heads, develop into
