TO GET THE TICK EARLY
Dipping of Cattle in Infested Area
East of the Mississippi to Begin in
Washington, D. C., Feb . 5.-The
dipping of cattle in the tick-infested
areas will begin eearlier than usual
this year, it is announced. There are
now 14,247 vats in commission and it
will be possible with these to dip over
a million catte each month. It is
planned to begin the work as soon
as possibl after March 1 in order to
catch the first generation of ticks
hatched in the spring before they
have had time to lay eggs. In this
way, it is hoped to release much ter
ritory early in the fall.
There is indeed reason to believe
that 1917 will see more territory freed
from the pest, than any year since
systematic tick eradication was be
,un. Each county released froni

freed areas will be opened to the

In the other States east of the Mis

is to be pushed vigorously by coun
ties. In South Carolina only ten
counties remain infested and in all
of these. it is planned to commence
systematic dipping on March 1. Five
hundred vats will be in operation and
approximately one hunt~red thousand
cattle will be dipped regularly. About
five thousand square miles should be
freed at the end of the season.

In Georgia it is planned to add
3,134 square miles to the 16,563 al
ready released. Fifty-six counties
are now free, and work will be carried
on this season in thirty-three others.
It is expected that 147,500 cattle will
be dipped in 1,320 vats.
In Alabama systematic work in fif
teen counties should set free 300,000
cattle and baout 11,000 square miles
of territory. Twenty-eight counties
already have been released from quar
.mntine and about 500 pure-bred bulls
have been imported into them. The

North Carolina still has twenty-five
counties under quarantine. Eight of
these it is hoped to clean up by ac
tive work this season; in the others
vats will be buiLt and preparations
ma;de for active work in 1918.
.The situation in Florida is some
what different from that in the other
infested States because as yet there
is no provision for extending State
aid to the counties in their' work of
eradication. Consequently progress
is largely dependent upon the amount
of voluntary support receive:. .from
ass6ciations of stockmen, dairymen,
bankers, and other business men. An
area of 3,800 square miles has, how
ever, already been cleaned, and into
this high-class beef and dairy cattle
are being imported with satisfactory
results. In another cotinty syste
matic work is being carried on which
should result in release from quaran
tine at the end of this year, seven
counties have appropriated money for
the construction of -vats, and similar
action is looked for on the part of a'
number of other..
West of the Mississippi the prob
lems -of eradication in Louisiana, Ar

as., Louisiana, lik Mississippi, has
made eradication a State matter. In
the other States the work will be ca&r

These facts indicate that through
out the entire So .;th there is a d.M a
mination to b~e ri of the~ tick ai
that qiuekly. It is many y.us sinwe
there was any question of the fenoi
bility of total eradication; the chief
difficulty has been to convince the
people that it was really worth their
while to take up the work. Today so
much etrritory has been freed that
the benefits are plainly app~arent, and
this difficulty has, therefore, to a
great extent been removed. In the
last three years more ?han 110,000
square miles have been released from
quarantine, leaving 419,000 in the en
tire country still infested. Much of
this area, however, is in Texas, where
the problem is somewvhat different
than in the States east of the Miss

"B 1916," a great newly discovered
comet, is coming to shine in the sky
this summer. Astronomers have al
ready viewed this bright comet
through poyerful telescopes; in De
cember it was approximately 300,
000,000 miles away; it ;s moving to
ward the earth at the rate of 50,000,
000 miles a month, will, no doubt, be
seen with the naked eye during June
Dr. Samuel Barton, assistant pro
fessor of astronomy at the Univer
sity 9f. Pennsylvania, said that the
"B 1916" is the brightest comet since
1882--Halley's comet, visible in 1909
and for two years afterward, being
"A most unusual feature about the
new comet 'B 1916'-so named be
cause comets are given letters in
the order of their discovery," said
Dr. Barton, "is the fact that it was
discovered so far away from the sun.
It was first seen 400,000,000 miles
away. Comets are generally discov
ered as they near the sun, and then
"'B 1016' was approximately 238,
000,000 miles away from the earth
yesterday; the last of the month will
find it about 214,000,000 miles away.
It is now in the constellation Ophiu
chus. I feel reasonably sure star
gazers will see the new comet during
July or August; but it is still some
whajt of an uncertainty; it depends
solely upon its distance from the
earth and the s..
