The question of v hat method to use
with cattle affected with tuberculosis
is a matter of greit Importance to all
owners of live stock. The value of
the tubercullne test and what action
the state shall take In the matter has
been the subject of much discussion.
At the recent meeting of the State
Agricultural Society, at which time
the members of the General Assembly
were present, Dr. H. M. Brown dis
cussed the question.
On account of the great Importance
of the question and the able exposition
of the question, a synopsis of his ad
dress is here given :
Mr. President, Gentlemen and Mem
bers of the General Assembly :
You will recognize now, I have no
doubt, that this is a question with two
sides, upon either of which much may
be said, and much doubt engendered
by a general and comprehensive dis
cussion of the subject. I think the
lessons of today should serve as a point
er to the law makers of this great
common-wealth, to go slow in their
deliberations, looking toward the en
actment of radical legislation along
these lines for it is strongly probable
that if any advanced, revolutionary,
position is taken, before many years
this position may have to be ignominl
ously receded from because of the
Impracticability of it, after spending
uselessly a great deal of money.
No man of scientific experience will
deny the large degree of reliability of
the tuberculin test, for when properly
applied it may be said to be at least 97
per cent, accurate, but, in the light of
practice, that is not the main thing
when dealing with this great question.
Many tlmesthe test Is not propeTly
applied for want of technical skill, but
where properly used It does wonders
in discovering disease.
The real weakness of tlve method
lies in its over sensitiveness as a diag

In animals there may "be a local in

the test will be as manifest as any other
case, and there is no way to tell the
extent of the infection, or whether
new and undeveloped as against old

Thus we may be led into a campaign
of useless destruction with tremendous
loss and waste to the people of the
In Belgulm, a few years ago, there
were two million cattle one million of

there Is no doubt of the. accuracy of

under the laws of the country, after
slaughter only 5 per cent, could be
shown to have the disease.
Under the regulations of that coun
try, all carcases are Inspected, whether
slaughtered privately or publicly, and
while the reliability of the test was
not questioned, its practical usefulness
became so uncertain that it was then
and there abandoned, as a means of
protection, and vaccination was sub-
i stltuted to the the great satisfaction

we must educate on all sides.

of animals are never present In the

never at all unless the animal suffers

Besides that, it Is a grave question
whether or not there ever occurs pri
mary tuberculosis seated in the glands
of the abdominal cavity. At least, it
is so rare that some of the most famous
scientists of the world deny the exist
ence of It.
If In the event of future research,
that position proves correct, the argu
ment that cows milk will produce con
sumption of the bowels falls to the
There Is another thing that people
must know in order that they may be
properly educated on this subject, and
it is a very important thing, that Is,
that no municipality need subject Its
citizenship to danger of bovine Infec
tion, granting for the moment that
such disease may be transmitted to
the human subject.
All any city or town need do Is to
establish a Pastuerizlng plant and re
quire all milk to be sterilized, and it
is thus at once rendered absolutely
And though we had no federal meat
inspectors the cooking of meat renders
it also harmless, however many baccllll
it may contain.
I am not here to claim that such
procedures should be regarded as the
solution, but I do maintain that with
such safeguards at hand no city, nor
aggregation of cities, should attempt
to force a State Into hasty and expen
sive measures of eradication that, un
der the illumlnationof long experience,
gives no promise of permanent effec
tiveness. Under the provision of our new con
stitution, laws may be passed giving
to cities and towns ample control over
all such matters.
As to the usefulness of the tubercu
lin test one would only need to point
out the experiences of the Argentine
States, New Zealand and Australia.
In those countries the cattle are kept
perpetually In the open and are sup
posed to be tuberculosis free, jet they
have been Infected by tuberculin test
ed bulls brought over from Great
Britain until, It Is said, they are almost
as tubercular as those of any other

pronounced healthy, under the test,
nevertheless they were tubercular, to a
considerable percentage, of the whole
number brought In and the disease was
generally disseminated. Yet it was

It these animals had been tested
again in a few weeks after the first
test, they would probably have been
excluded from entry Into those coun

the test shows nothing, and it was in
this way that diseased animals were
admitted into those countries.
Under a plan of universal test and
destruction of all reactors and the re

of error would render tho method

With the present equipment it would
