Tfll? C&T-rijjiS TICK
CAUSES GREAE LOSS TO THE
lairy Cattle Bot So B^?ly /fleeted
But There is Muchf|T oss
There, Some Facts.
Government ^experts recently sect
out to Investigate the ravages of oat*
tie tick report that below the quaran
tine there are something over 15,000
000 castle, tbe total farm value of
which is given by the last census as
nearly 8183,000,000. The dairy cat
tle are credited with a value of about
' 858.650.000 and the other cattle with
over 8124,000 000. From observation
and experience It is estimated that a
shrinkage in value of 20 per cent in
tattle other than dairy cattle is due
directly to the effects of the tick. In
round numbers this would moan a loss
of 825,030,000.for beef cattle.
The dairy cattle being better cared
for and to a large extent confined Id
lots where the tick do not flourish or
even exist, suffer less damage. How
ever, considerable damage is experi
enced In a great many instar cm, es
pecially in the cuuntry, because of the
extra feed required and the shrink
age in the fl ;w of milk caused by tioi
infestion. /It is b- lieved that an esti
mate of five per cent of the total v&l
ue of the dairy cattle is not over
charging the tick. This means an an
nual loss of nearly 83.000 000 for dairy
cattle. The total depreciation of
southern;cattle on ac-ount of the tick
?would be 828 000,000.
The loss from exposure in the south
era states Is partially due to tbe ne
gligenos of the people in regard to
their cattle. Seldom is any ore vision
made for shelter or any additional
feed. The excessive loss from expo
sere and disease in tbe tick-infested
states must be ascribed to the tick.
The loss in the states with the most
equable climates is greatest because
tiok actively is greatest there and the
tick season is the longer.
The total number of cattle that
died in the tick-infested district dur
ing the year ending March 81, 19o5,
was about 1,250,003, death being due
largely to' exposure. This loss const!
tutes nearly 50 per cent of the total
loss suffered by the whole country,
and yet the tiok-infosted states con
tain barely 25 per cent of the country
cattle. The average value of these
southern cattle, both milk and beef
breeds^ may be put at 812, according
to the bureau of statistics; therefore
the total annual loss from death is
the tick-infested states amounted to
815,000,000. The average death rate
in quarantined states being nearly
three times as great as that in the
, tick free states, it is cot unfair to as
sume that two thirds of this less by
aeath is directly attributable to the
tiok, that is. 10,000,000.
The average value of southern cot
tie is 87 below that of northern cattle.
In the state of Arkansas beef cattle
are given a farm value of 87 50 per
head. The cattle of Iowa are value"
at 819.42?almost three times as
much. If 12,000.000 cattle of better
blood could take the place of 12,000,
000 scraps, the valuation of southern
cattle would be about 884,000,000 more
than it is today. The southern states
with the tick gone, would soon double
and even treble the number of cat
tle in the northern states.
One of the greatest benefits that
would follow the eradication of the
cattle tiok would be tbe increased
fertility of the soil that would result
Irom a great cattle industry in the
south. Instead of exporting as now
to foreign countries?over 1,000,000, ?
000 pounds of cotton seed meal year
ly, whioh if converted into be?f would
bring from 86,000,000 to 810,000,000
mere than is received for it from ?
abroad, it could be fed to cattle, and
thus would be kept at home the enor- ;
mous amount of fertilizer of which
the farms are cow robbed, besides se
curing the 810,000,000 extra value for
tne finished produot. The fertilizer
saved to tbe lands of the south would
ieprssent 810,000,000 in direct value.
It is believed that, all told, th?
fiouth loses annually between 8100.
000.000 and 8200,000,00^ tlirough the
ravages of the tiok.

A Scoundrel Who Wants to be
Tbe Columbia Record says Wednes
day morning a negro cerpenter entio

known white oit'zan into a building
where he was working. There he ln>

with grossly Immoral suggestions and
obscene actions. She told ber father
of the occurrence and he started im
mediately for tbe scene. 4 shooting
affray that would have terminated
fatally, for tbe negro, at least, was
probably averted by the appearance
of a policeman lust before tbe father's
The negro was locked up forthwith

but he gave the brute all that the law
allowed, a sentence of S100 fine or
thirty days, with ten minutes at tbf
exoiration of bis time on tbe gang in
which to leave the city, never to re

avoid a sensation. Probably this pre

at summary violence by outraged

With Crusted Scaly Eczema When

AT EXPENSE OF $4.50
"When I was one month old I was
taken with eczema. After being under
the treatment of two doctors for one
month and no improvement, my
mother was advised by a druggist
to try Cuticura Soap and Cintment.
I was one crust of sores from head to
foot. My mother could brush the scales
off my body; and my finger and toe nails
fell. After using six cakes of Cuticura
Soap and about as much Cuticura Oint
ment I was completely cured. I am now
seventeen years old and my skin has not
a scar. I am still finding wonders in Cuti
cura; after washing a fever blister two
days it was completely gone." Your

the fact that the Cuticura Remedies
were used on a one month old baby
with complete success, proving what wo
have always claimed that these great
curatives are so pure, so sweet, and so
delicately medicated that they may be
used on the youngest infants
Are the Best for Skin and Blood
"About three years ago my face be
gan to get rough with acno and kept
getting worse. A year ago I read in
a puper of the Cuticura Remedies for
the skin and blood. I sent for them
at once. I used the Cuticura Soap,
Ointment, and Pills, and in three
months my skin was soft, and smooth,
and the pimples have all disappeared
without the services of a physician. I
think the Cuticura Remedies are the
best that any one can use for the skin
and blood." May G. Schieferle,
