Tlons have been extended by
the department of agriculture so as
to include all the territory east of the

a restricted area out of which no
shipments of live stock, except for
slaughter within 48 hours will bo

All of the great slaughtering cen

tory and there is little shipping ot
live cattle out of it, but the new order
was deemed necessary to protect the

Two important new regulations
were added yesterday, one defining
"immediate slaughter" as used in ex

cases of foot and mouth disease have
been found in Virginia, West Virginia,

dictions will be permitted under tiie
revised regulations to ship out stock

farms for a certain length of time and
has not been exposed to any risk of

cases where cattle shipptd from areas
where the disease had existed carried
it to previously uninfected sections,
such as four counties in Kansas, con

cautions wil! make shipments abso

said, should confine the disease to the
regions in which it has already made
its appearance and in "which the work
of eradicating It will be pushed as be
"In this restricted territory live
stock may be moved freely to other
points within the same territory, but
