A Batch of Liv? Paragraphs Cover
lng a Wide Range-What is Going
On in Our State.
Reports of Glanders.
. A number of reports have come in
to the governor's office recently of al
leged cases of glanders, but so far as
known here there have been no
spread of the disease at any point. In
many instances it has been discovered
that the disease thought to be glan
ders was not a contagious disease at
alL. Governor Ansel says there seems
I to be a', general misunderstanding
as to how to proceed to get cases
of the kind investigated by the .State
yetinanan at Clemson College. A
special act of the Legislature gives
the Clemson board of trustees author
tiy to make rules and regulations to
guide the. vetinarian in such cases,
' the governor's office has nothing io
do with it. All requests for the ser
vices, of the expert are at once refer
red by the governor tc the vetinarian.
Those having fears of contagious dis- J
ease among the cattle should commu- j
nicate with the Clemson man at once
direct, which would save time. One
of the rules is that each report of a
supposed contagious disease must be
epr'i rscd by .at least two reputable
citizens of the community. The veti
narian then sends blanks for a" fuller
report. . The opject of the rules and
regulations is is-to avoid unnecessary
expense in investigating groundless
reports. Governor Ansel has re
ceived a telegraphic request from Gif
?ford, Barnwell, for immediate help in
Jthe case of a mule supposed to be suf
Tering. from glamors. The Governor
s not an expert on mule nature
mt he surmises it might nossibly be
rierely a case.of mule bluffing to keep
but of work. - ' .
