that good progress had been made in
enforcing quarantine In this vicinity
for the purpose of stamping out the
dreaded foot and mouth disease,
which is existing throughout the coun
try ai the present time. Colonel
George W. Burr has issued an order
that no hay, straw or fodder be car
ried over the bridge in any form, and
the railroad companies are abiding by
the law in regards to shipping these
articles across the railroad bridges
over the state line.
Yesterday afternoon the employes
of the Rock Island lines cleaned out
and disinfected all stock cars and pens
in the Silvis yards, and today the Bur
lington is doing likewise at the yards
in Nahant, Iowa.
Dr. Joss stated that the shipping
over state lines of glass, crockery and
other breakables, packed in hay or
straw, s prohibited. Unless the hay
or straw was harvested prior to Aug.
1, it would have to be disinfected be
fore used. In casa hay or straw used
in packing was harvested before Aug. j Irving . . .
1. the shiDner would have to make I Longfellow
out an affidavit to that effect befor?
he would be allowed to use it. Gov
ernment experts claim that hay, straw
and fodder were largely instrumental
in carrying the dreadad hoof and
mouth disease germ, and for this rea
son restrictions have been placed on
the aforenamed articles.
No cases of the disease have been
found among cattle or hogs in Rock
Island or Scott counties, the nearest
point where the disease is prevalent
being in Mercer county.
