BLACKLEG IS HERE
Fatal Disease Appears Among
Cattle In Lower End of
SEVERAL HERDS AFFECTED
Feared It Will Spread and Cause Seri
ous Losses Begins in Best
The disease known as blackleg and
one of the most fatal in the category
of bovine ailments, is reported to have
affected several herds about Reynolds.
A number of animals have died, and
there is danger that the disease will
spread and cause considerable losses.
It has been several years since black
leg appeared in this section. It usual
ly starts with young and well fed cat
tle and is communicated to others. As
the name implies, the first and most
prominent symptom is the swelling and
turning black of the legs of the animal
affected, and this is communicated to
the entire body and death follows in
a few hours.
There is no treatment that will avail
and the efforts of the veterinarian are
usually confined to preventing the
spread of the disease to other members
of the herd or to other herds.
Blackleg is suuiosed to be due to a
peculiar germ and the manner in which
it is communicated is not thoroughly

rough and will therefore afford very
poor skating for the small boy who

THESPIANS STEAL CHICKS
For Christmas Dinner Captured by
Peoria. Ill- Dec. 29. When the
"special train of the "Sergeant Kitty"
company rolled in on the Burlington
Sunday afternoon there was not one of
the company of CO who had any desire
for a Christmas dinner. It was not the
lack of appreciation of the day, but was
due to the fact that they had all had
their Christmas dinner and a novel one
The train was delayed at a small
town about six or seven miles called
Rothner. It was about dinner time and
everybody was hungry. There was no
prospect of getting anything to eat
until Charles Wayne, the comedian,
sighted a covey of young chickens near
the railroad track. He called for vol
unteers and formed a skirmish line,
gradually-advancing on the chickens
in the formation of a hollow square
until the order to rush was given. The
result of the raid was the capture of a
dozen, more or less, young and ten
der chickens. The next thing was to
While the members of the company
were offering suggestions, the farmer
who owned the chickens descended
uton the chicken grabbers, armed with
vicious loking sawed-off shot gun.
There was no argument. Wayne paid
the full price and jollied the farmer
into cooking the chickens. Those that
cooked to an apparently tender condi
tion were eaten by the theatrical folk.
Some of the chickens are still cooking.
Added to the chickens was home-made
jellies, cookies and baked iotatoes,
celery, and the like.
