Purdue University Agricultural Experi
Among the acts of the last session
of the Indiana legislature was one
making it compulsory to dip all scabby
sheep. The object is to stamp out
his expensive but unnecessary dis
ease. The reports or the state statis
tician for the past few years have
shown that there has been a consider
able number of sheep affected. The
forth coming report will show more
than 8,000 head reported to be affect
ed for the year ending June 30. There
no question but there have been
many errors in reporting but deduct
ing these there still remains a large
number of affected sheep.
Scab is produced by an itch mite,
hat causes itching, rubbing, pulling
and shedding the wool, causing a bare
and scabby skin. The parasite can
not live for any great length of time
off the skin and does not thrive on
any other animal. It is therefore
possible to stamp out the disease by
killing all mites by dipping. Solu
tions of tobacco, lime aiM sulphur
and arsenic are effective for this pur
pose. The tobacco solutions have
preference. They may be made by
taking from 20 to 23 pounds of tobacco
leaves and stems and soaking for one
day in sufficient water to cover. Then
boil for an hour and draw off after six
hours. Dilute to 100 gallons. Add
20 pouuds of sulphur and use while
warm. The lime and sulphur dip
may be made by slacking eight pounds
of lime in seme water, adding 24
pounds of sulphur and diluting to 100
allons. - It is troublesome to prepare
the tobacco solution and is about as
cheap to buy the extract ready for use.
The lime and sulphur dip is in
jurious to the wool. It requires on
an average of one and one-half gallons
of dip solution per head formore than
25 head. The second dipping is nec
essary at the tenth day so that' the
cost for material must be reckoned at
alout five to seven cents per head.
The coal tar or creolin dips are excel
lent for ticks but not as effective as
they should be for scab. As far as
known nearly all affected sheep have
been dipped but any person knowing
of such disease should report the same
to the state veterinarian, Lafayette,
Ind., at once, as efforts will be
made to complete the work before cold
The Johnson Obsequies.
At 2:30 Sunday afternoon, in tin;
presence of a large concourse of peo
ple, the funeral- of Amasa Johnson
was held at his late residence. Rev.
McKenzie of the Methodist church
conducted the service and a selected
choir sang. The Grand Army post, of
which Captain Johnson had for many
years been a member, attended in a
body and furnished the bearers who
carried the flag-covered coffin to and
from the hearse. The post exempli
fied its beautiful and patriotic burial
service at the grave.
The attorneys at the Marshall coun
ty bar, led by Judge Capron, acted as
honorary pall-bearers and followed
thc remains of their brother lawyer to
the cemetery. Many members of thc
Royal Arcanum attended but the
organization was not present in a
formal way. The floral tributes were
many and beautiful. .
The lawyers, at their meeting Sat
urday, appointed a committee to pre
pare resolutions in memory of Mr.
Johnson and present them at the first
day of the ensuing term of court.
They also arranged for a handsome
lloral piece to be placed beside the
But It Wasn't.
One night last week at Roci tester,
after having considerable trouble with
small boys at the door, Manager Wade
ordered thc little fellows all down
stairs and out of the way. In a few
minute j one of the young nuisances
came back, carrying a paper bag, aLd
"Mister, if you let me in I'll give
you a pineapple."
The proposition looked good so Mr.
Wade took the bag and passed the
boy .in. After the show the manager
produced the pineapple and started in
to tret the company, but- the fruit
turned out to be far from tempting
and was rejected. Next day Mr.
Wade saw the boy on the street and
"Here, son, that pineapple was rot
ten last night."
"So was the show," howled the pre
cocious youth and took to his heels.
