Dr. Brown Tells of Symp
toms and Effects Upon
Cattle and Stock
ONLY FEW ANIMALS DIE
But Recovery is Very Slow and
at Great Expense to 'Own
be Strictly Observed.
The following brief, description of
the nature of the foot and mouth
disease, now epidemic among cattle,
was furnished by Dr. Brown at the
request of the editor, a number of our
readers having asked us to secure an
authoritative statement on the dis
ease: Foot and mouth disease in cattle Is
one of the mo9t contagious of the ail
ments affecting animals
It starts out with chills and fever
and ruffing of the hair which are soon
followed bv blisters on the inside of
the lips and cheeks and over thB
tongue and almost simultaneously
therewith, blebs or blisters with red
ness and swelling may be observed
around the tops of the feet, at the
function of the hoof and hair and be
tween the toes. ,
These symptoms appear In from
three to six das, after exposure to the
infection, beginning first with the
chill and fever and loss of appetite, an
uneasy shuffling of the mouth and
tongue and "licking of the "chops
showing evident distress about the
mouth preceedlng the actual breaking
out of the blisters which Is always
accompanied with slobbering first of a
glaring stringy mucous which subse
quently merges into a grayish purulent
discharge owing to the Issuing of the

until great bed sores are produced on
the hips, and other dependent portions
of tho carcass, seriously complicating
the chances of quick recovery.
In the cas6 of dairy cows the udder
will frequently show the same lesions
as the mouth and feet ; on rare occa
sions other regions of the body surface
are also attacked, such, for instance,
as that part of the hide located above
the back part of the udder and below
the tail head which normally Is thin
ner and more delicate there than In
On still more rare occasirns the In
ternal organs are attacked even before
there are any outward manifestations.
Those are the cases which may die
of paralysis of the heart or by suffoca
tion from swellings about the breath
Whilst this disease is essentially a
malady peculiar to cattle, it is, by no
means, confined to them ; hogs, sheep,
goats, horses, cats, dogs and poultry
may contract it, nor can it be said that
the human species enjoys any reliable
immunity to it.
Although the actual mdrtallty is
low, perhaps not over two or three
per cent, it nevertheless is capable of
causing unlimited and prodigious losses

extent, and gain a foot hold in this

Trying to Oust Him as School
ELIGIBILITY NOT DECIDED
Judge Molds Suit Can Be Brought
Only By Prosecuting Attor
ney or Attorney General
Other Court News.
Judge Newby dismissed the suit of
J. A. B. Srofe against W. H. Vance
on Saturday. This suit asked that
Vance be ousted as county superin
tendent of the schools of Highland
county. It was decided upon a de
murrer to the petition on the grounds
that the plaintiff was not a proper
party to bring the suit. The question
of Trof. Vance's eligibility to hold
the office was not passed upon.
Judge Newby held that the only
persons who could bring suit question
ing the right of Prof. Vance to hold
the office were the attorney general of
the state oi the prosecuting attorney
of the county. As a citizen of the
county he said that lie deplored that
there should be any question of the
eligibility of Prof. Vance to hold the
office and strongly urged that the
proper official bring the action so that
the question could be determined on
its merits ; that this should be done
in fairness to Prof. Vance and for the
welfare of the schools ; that If Prof.
Vance was eligible to hold the office
the cloud should be removed from his
title and that If he was not he should
be removed from the office.
The reasons advanceJ by Judge
Newby for sustaining the demurrer
and dismissing the suit were in brief
as follows :
That the county superintendent of
schools was what is known legally as a
public officer. He defined a public of
ficer as one to whom some of the sov
ereign powers of the state had been
delegated, his duties being defined by
statute. The duties of the county
superintendent are defined by statute,
the county board of education having
no control over him after his election.
The right of a public officer to hold
office can only be questioned by the
attorney general or prosecuting at.
torney. Therefore, he dismissed the
Prosecuting Attorney McBrlde has
not stated whether or not he intend
ed to bring a suit to settle the right
of Prof. Vance to hold the office. He
recently stated that he would take no
action until he received an opinion
from the attorney general.
TWO JIOKK DIVOKOE CASKS.
Two new cases, both for divorce,
were filed In the Common Fleas Court
during the .past week.
Elizabeth E. Warlamont asks for a
divorce from James W. Warlamount
on the ground of wilful absence for
more than three years. The parties
were married June 1, 1889, in Salem
township and have no children.
Lee Tarlton Hunter wants a dl.
vorce from Terry Hunter. They were
married at Washington O. H., on Oct
10, 1913, and have no children. The
plaintiff says that the defendant has
I been guilty of gross neglect of duty in

also accuses him of extreme cruelty,

A Union Revival will be held
Hillsboro during January. Rev
N. Faulconer, of Philadelphia, for
merly pastor of the Hillsboro Presby
terian church will be the evangelist.
The meeting will be held in a Taber
nacle and the work of constructing it
will be started soon.
While the question of holding a
Union Revival here this winter lias
been under consideration by the differ
ent churches for several months defi
nite action was not taken until last
Sunday afternoon, when a meeting
of the paties and officers of the different
Protestant churches was held at the
Baptist church. Rev. Slutz was chair
mm of the meeting and Rev. Emerick,
Rev. Faulconer will have to assist

A large choir and orchestra will be
organized and the music will be a
feature of the meetings.
Every effort will be made by the
churclies to have a real revival of
religion during these meetings and it
is hoped and believed that great good
will come from them.
At the meeting Sunday the following
committee to arrange for the location
and the construction of the Tabernacle
was ap pointed : C. F. Hugglns, Noah
Roads, Charles Whlsler, C. N. Winkle,
Daniel Morgan and Charles Duffey.
Meetings will be held tacli Sunday

Ing bodies of the different churches
until the meetings open. The meeting
next Sunday afternoon will be at the

A finance committee will be appoint
ed by the pastors. This committee
will secure signers to a fund guaran
teeing the construction of the taber
nacle, although there is no doubt but
that the collections at the meetings
will defray the cost of its construction,
pay all running expenses and the salary
of the evangelist and singer.
Rev. Faulconer needs no recommen
dation to the people of Hillsboro and
Highland county. All who heard him
while he was pastor of the Presbyterian
church know of his eloquence, of his
sincerity and of his power to awaken
people to the desire for higher and
better things. Since leaving Hillsboro
he has engaged almost exclusively in
evangelistic work and his success has

To Pay $20,000 Outstanding
Indebtedness of Town
Called by Council
TQ gg HELD DECEAIBER
Same Day as Election on Street
to Make Temporary
Light Contract Fails
At the special meeting of Council
Thursday night a special election was
called for Tuesday, Dec. 15, to pass on
the question of issuing $20,000 of
bonds. These bonds are to cover the
outstanding indebtedness of the town.
This indebtedness consists of certifi
cates of Indebtedness issued by the
town to cover running expenses and
taken up by tne Slntcing Fund
Trusteesand 87,000 due the H llsboro
Light and Fuel Co. on Uie old con
tract,. This indebtedness Is drawing
six per cent, interest. It is believed
by Council that the bonds can be sold
to bear not to exceed five per cent. In
terest. This election will be held on tt e
same day as the election un the initia
tive petitions for an ordinance for
street llgtits. The two propositions
should not be contused. The 420,000
whlcn the town owes does not mean
that it owes that much on the street
lights. The street lighting contract
had no more to do witu tins indebted
nest than any of the other expenses of
the town auring the last three years.
It in simply that lor the last tnree
years the revenues of the town hae
been about $0,500 less each year tban
the expenditures : that since the
Smith One Per Cent. Law went into
effect the town lias been running be
hluU that much each ear.
At the meeting Thursday n'gtit
Council also pissed a resolution in
structing the Ligtit Committee to
confer with the Hillsboro Light &
Fuel Co. and at.empt to make a tem
porary contract for street lights Tt.e
'committee was authorized to exp-nd
! not to exceed $300 a ruontti for a. is
purpose and hid puwer to make at y
contract it considered reasonable.
Ttie Ll'ht Committee exiled un vi r
beeclier, manager of the Light Com
pany, Friday afternoon. According
to Mr Meneley, chairman ot the corn
mlttee, an oiler was made to pay lue
Light Co. $300 a month for light, tl fi
lights to be on until eleven o'clock at
I night and turned on cne iuur in the
nuniing and no lights on uijonlUi t
night This contract was to be for a
month at a time. Mr. Bcecher e
fuel to make such a contract Mr
Meneley then asked how much lii.t
the company would furnish the twn
on a monthly contract for f :?t k a
month and Mr. Beeclier replied on y
so much as could be purchased at rate
of ten cents a kilowatt, which Is tie
regular rate to all private consumers.
Mr. Meneley says that the only condi
tion on which Mr. Beeclier ague I to
furnish light to the village temporar
ily for less than ten cents a kilowa1 1
was upon the promise that at the ex
piration of some set time Council
would agree to make a ten year con
tract with the Light Co In which the
town was to piy for street lights not
less than $5,100 a year. Such a con
tract Mr Meneley says can not be
considered as with the o d arc lamps
