Qualified Veterinarians at University
Farm Answer Your Questions.
The Veterinary Division of the
"University Farm, S Paul, advises the
--employment of competent local vet
erinarians where their services are
available. In many parts of this sec
tion such men cannot be secured and
the Veterinary Division is always
glad to give such consultation as is
possible by mail. It receives so many
inquiries that it wishes to place be
fore every stock owner in the state
mis outline of information which
should be included in letters of in
quiry. The delay caused by consulta
tion by mail may be so great at best
that the animal is dead or in very
serious condition before a reply is
received. The speediest and most
satisfactory possible reply would be
facilitated if the inquirer gave care

TUBERCULIN TE^T REQUIRED
Certificate Must Be Furnished on Sale,
of Pure Bred Cattle.
Pure bred cattle sold in Minnesota
tor breeding purposes must carry a
tuberculin test certificate. The test
must be conducted before delivery of
the animal purchased. It is conduct
ed by the live stock sanitary board,
or by some person duly authorized by„
this board. If the animals have been
tested within one year of the date of
sale they need not be retested, but
they must carry a certificate of test.
Cattle over six months of age, im
ported into Minnesota for dairy or
•reedins purposes, must be accom
panied by proper certificate that tu
berculin test has been made within
thirty days. This test may be made
by a federal, state or deputy state
veterinarian. Such test in another
state may be made in some cases by
other veterinarians, providing the
rest certificate is countersigned by the
proper authority of the state from
which shipment is to be made.—Dr.

m* DRESSING HOGS.
Animals intended for slaughter
Should be kept off feed from twenty
four to thirty-six hours. It kept on
full feed the system is gorged and the
blood, loaded with assimilated nutri
ents, Is driven to the. extremities of
the capillaries. In such a condition
it is impossible to drain out the veins
thoroughly when the animal is bled
and a reddish colored, unattractive
.care-ass will be the result The blood
is the most easily decayed substance
in the 'animal carcass and often
causes trouble in the curing of meat.
Food in the stomach decomposes very
rapidly after slaughter and if the
dressing is slow the gases generated
often flavor the meat
Water should be given freely up to
the time of slaughter, as it keeps the
temperature normal and helps to
wash the effete matter out of the sys
tem, resulting in a nicely colored car
It Js important that the animals be
not excited in any way sufficiently to
raise the temperature of the body pre
vious to killing. Excitement prevents
proper drainage of the blood vessels
and, if extreme, will cause soaring of
the meat very soon after dressing.
In no instance saowM an animal be
kjSBed Immediately after a" km* drive,
or after a. rapid ran In the pasture.
The flesh from animals overheated Is
The animals should not be chased or
driven- rapidly, nor should they be
handled in such a way as to bruise
the bodies. Bruises -caase^blood lo
%tay»ihythat portion of the body af
fected and often cause the loss of a
considerable portion of the carcass.
fiat thirty-stx-nour fast pWtfr of water,
careful handling and: rest before
slaughter: are all important in secur
ing meat in the best condition for use,
either fresh or for curing purposes.
Temperature of Water for Scalding
Must Be Just Right.
It is an easy matter to dress hogs
neatly provided the temperature of
the water is just right. The water
for scalding should be heated to a
temperature of 200 degrees F. On a
farm where it must be heated in the
bouse, usually it should be boiling
when removed from the stove, if
turned into a cold barrel it will then
be abont the right temperature, 185 to
195 degress, when the hog is ready to
be scalded. Water at 165 to 175 de
grees will scald a hog, but more time
will be required and the results are
not so satisfactory. It is not expected
that a thermometer will always be
used, but boiling water carried from
the stove to a cold barrel out of doors
will usually be at about the right tem
perature for scalding when the hog is
put in the barrel unless there, is un
A small shovelful of hard wood
ashes, added to the water, aids ma
terially in removing the scurf from
the body, although it has no effect
in loosening the hair. A lump of
lime or a handful of soft soap will
have the same effect on the scurf.
While being scalded the hog should
be kept moving constantly to avoid
cooking the skin. As soon as the hair
and scurf slip easily from the sur
face, scalding Is complete. If it is
suspected that the water is too hot,
scald the hind end of the hog first
if too cold, the front end, in order to
always get a good scald on the head,
which is difficult to clean.
The scraping should begin just as
soon as the hog is removed from the
water and the more rapidly it is done
the easier it will be. The head and
feet should be cleaned first, as they
cool quickly. A small hand "candle
stick" scraper is a very convenient
tool for the purpose. It may be pur
chased at almost any hardware store
for from 25 to 35 cents.
After removing the hair from trie
body the hog should be hung up and
rinsed with hot water and then with
cold, scraping down with a sharp
knife to remove all hair and scurf
from the body.—Andrew Boss, Uni
rersit.y Farm, St. Paul.

Rainey AfHcan Hunt Flctunt*
.The Turner Theatre will bavto one of the most interesting attraction* o( the season on next Monday evening in
the world-famed motion pictures of Paul J. Rainey's African hunt. After viewing Ihem, it will he easy to understand
why they continued to draw crowded hou«es for fiva months at the Lyceum Theatre, New York, remaining ibroughoti'
the heat of the entire summer, and why they have proven a veritable sensation wherever else they have been shown
There are many unusual aud instructive features to this new theatrical diversion, for while we have h«d motion
pictures before of wild animals, these are the first to show the beasts of the jungle exactly as they live in their native
haunts. Nearly every animal which Noah is credited with havine taken into the Ark is shown by the Rainey pictures
Herds of antelopes, zebras, monkeys, elephants, lions and even as many as seven rhinos at one time pass before the
astonished gaze of the audience. The playfulness of some of the animals, thegrouchiness of others become clearly ap
parent as the films are unreeled. Rhinos engajje la a battle royal, while baboons chase one another ac/ roes the ground
The famous water hole picture fairly holds one spellbound as one species of wild animal after another comes there
to drink. Many new lights on bow the different animals do drink are shed by the accurate records of the camera.
A very interesting and instructive lecture makes clear every detail of the pictures, which afford even .keener de.
light to children than to grown-ups.
