PARASITES CAUSE BIG LOSS
Injury From Insects is Greatest
Among Lambs and Young Sheep
Ways to Prevent Diseases.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
raent of Agriculture.)
Sheep probably suffer more than any
other kind of live stock from para
sites. They are practically immune
to tuberculosis, which is one of the
serious ailments of cattle and swine,
and among sheep there is nothing
comparable to the devastating out
breaks of cholera among swine. Sheep
have comparatively few bacterial
diseases. Nevertheless, there is a
steady loss of sheep in all parts' of
the country and this loss is mostly
due to parasites.
It ls the sheep owners' business to
prevent disease rather than to attempt
to cure it after lt has made its ap
pearance. "While there are special
treatments for the various diseases
which makes it advisable to call a
competen); veterinarian, there are a
number cf ways to prevent diseases
caused by parasites. Among these
pasture rotation, use of forage crops,
feeding from racks or board floors,
draining or Ailing swamps, and pre
venting wandering dogs from getting
into the flock. Permanent pastures
perpetuate parasites, lt is stated. The
eggs of internal parasites pass from
the animals in the manure and thus
the pastures become infested. The
proper disposal of the manure will
aid in preventing this.
Damage from parasites is greatest,
as a rule, among lambs and young
sheep. Hence, it is important to pay
special attention to the care and
handling of lambs and yearlings.
Prompt action to ascertain the cause
when sheep become unthrifty will
often prevent serious loss. _,_
Parasites of sheep are divided into
two general groups, external and in
ternal. Among the former, lice, sheep
ticks, and scab mites are the most
common. One application of sodium
flouride In the form of a powder
rubbed into the skin will kill biting
lice, but not sucking lice. Both kinds
of lice, sheep ticks, and scab mites

are destroyed by dipping the sheep.
For lice and sheep ticks a number of
dips are recommended In the bulle
tin, including coal tar creosote, cresbl,
and nicotin, or nicotln and. sulphur.
For scab mites the official dips are
lime-sulphur and nicotin-sulphur dips.
Arsenical dips are not well suited to
sheep dipping. All places which have
been occupied by lousy sheep should
be regarded as dangerous from this
standpoint for a period of three weeks ;
if occupied by tlcky sheep, as dan
gerous for two months; if occupied
by scabby sheep, as dangerous for a
month or two in the case of pastures,
and a year or more In the case of
buildings. Quarantine measures are
essential in eradicating scab.
The most common internal parasites.
of sheep Include tapeworms, flukes,
roundworms, and a few other forms
such as maggots causing grub in the
head, the tongue-worm and the one
celled protozoa. One of the most com
mon of these Is the grub, infestation
with which can be largely prevented
by smearing the nose of the sheep
with a. preparation made of equal
parts of tar and grease, or tar and
fish oil. Other Important internal par
asites discussed in the bulletin are
tapeworms, the gid parasites,' hydatld,
liver flukes, stomach worms, nodular
worms, hookwoims, and lungworms.
Of these, certain tapeworms are fair
ly common over the entire United
States; one tapeworm occurs only in
the West; gid is most prevalent In
Montana ; liver flukes are most com
mon In the Gulf states and the Pacific
Coast states ; stomach worms and lung
worms take a heavy toll In sheep in
almost every state in the Union, and
nodular worms and hookworms are
common in the South and East.

Sales of Paregoric Must Be
Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 22-Hundreds
of retail grocers and wholesale drug
concerns, in Atlanta and throughout
Georgia are violating the law by in
discriminating sales of paregoric to'
purchasers, according to infor
mation given but today at the of
fices of the federal narcotic inspec
tors in Atlanta.
Paregoric is one of the non-ex
empt preparations for which a sales
registration fee must be paid the
government, it was stated. In addi
tion to this registration fee, which
is nominal and assessed only "to keep
check on persons making sale of the
paregoric, a strict record- of all sales
must be kept by the wholesale drug
gists making the sale to the retail
grocers. A record of the sales to in
dividuals must also be kept by the
grocers, it was pointed out.
These records are for government
inspection and must be preserved
for a period of two years. The pur
pose of these records is to prevent
"any retailer from selling paregoric
in great quantities to the individual
Paregoric contains more .than two
grams of opium per fluid ounce and
is being used by a number of drug
addicts to satisfy that insatiable de
sire for morphine and cocaine
agents state. These drugs are ex
tremely hard to secure now, since
the order was issued that the drugs
can only be sold to addicts upon
the presentation of a prescription
from a physician, setting forth that
the purchaser is being treated for
the habit. . .
Federal agents have recently con
cluded a series of investigations in
Pensacola, Fla., where they prefer
red charges against a number of per
sons for violating the registrations
concerning the sale of paregoric, and
it is understood they are planning a
"clean up" campaign in Georgia.
Greeks Successful in America
The Baltimore Sun has the follow
ing interesting story concerning
two brothers who came over to Union
town, Pa. a few years ago from
Greece, and who from having noth
ing have arisen to wealth and prom
inence. The article says:
Gregory brothers, Uniontown boot
blacks, have obtained*a site in Main
Street and announce they will con
sider bids for a $1,000,000 hotel by
October 1, at which'time they will
:lose negotiations for the ground
located within two blocks of the
:ity's business center.
"Fifteen yaars ago the eldest of
the five brothers arrived in Union
town from Greece penniless and se
ared a job in a shoe shining parlor.
Two years later the other four had
3een provided with transportation to
America, and all five went to work
mining shoes in a cubbyhole space
.vhich opened in Main street.
"Successful realty investments en
abled tRem to purchase the Yough
Rotel, in Connelsville, a business
alock in Uniontown and a number
jf residential sites. The advancing
market trebled the value of their
holdings. Last week they disposed of
a square bounded by North Gallatin
ivenue, Peter and Penn strets to
Barry Cooper a tinsmith, for $150,
"The hotel project has been se
riously .considered by several local
?oal and coke producers, but the
Gregorys are the first in the field
with an announcement of their plans.
The new building will rival Union
town's skyscraper, the First Nation
al Bank building, built by J. V.
Thompson in 1901, at a cost of $900
000, and which sold on the auction
block at a bank receiver's sale for
$720,000 three years ago."
Two members of the Greek colony
in Savannah who have made a won
derful success according to a story
in the Savannah Morning News are
the Lamas Brothers who started
some years" ago with a shoe shine
parlor, and who amassed quite a for
tune in Savannah and who are just'
starting extensive building there.
The Augusta Greek colony has
many progressive citizens among
them, and many of them are ac
quiring property herej-Aug.

EVERY DOLLAR that you spend foolishly, every proportion?
ate amount of money that you earn that it would be possible to
save and do not, is only money that you have to work for again.
On the other hand every dollar you put in the bank is money
that is going to constantly work, for you. Which is the best;
money always working for you, or you always working for
your money. Come in and start that bank account. Don't put fe
