English Nose Guard /
Thia ,nose gard is now worn by
the allies in the tronchos in the fight
ing around the Yser canal, where the
Germans, just the other day, released
poisonous gases to drive them from
their trenches. Tho noiie guard was
Invented for use earlier when the
Germans shot bombs containing poi
sonous gases. Now it will be used
against the chlorine, which 1ms be
come a German weapon of war.
When a heavy yellow cloud of acrid
fumes went drifting south from tho
Germar: trenches at evening on
Thursday, April 22, and rolled over
the French Unc3 near luingtmiarek,
the defenders were taken by surprise.
WASHINGTON. April 20.-A fea
ture of the present outbreak of foot
and-mouth disease: to which the Fed
eral authorities attach much impor
tance ls the n'l-precendtedly large
number of hogs which have been af
fected. Both actually and in propor
tion to-the total number of animals
stricken, this has been much larger
than in any of tito previous outbreaks
in this country*. Tho chief rer.son, the
authorities say, Ja the sprcuu of thc
infection through uncooked skimmed
milk and "other creamery by products
returned to tire farms to bo fed hogs.
Infected garbage, it is thought, is also
to be held responsible for a portion
of Gie loss.
In the epidemic of 1902 in whicch 4,
461 animals wero' lost, only 260 of
the total were hogs. The loss In cat
tle amounted to nearly 87 per cent
of the total, that In hogs to only 8
per cent, and in other animuls to on
ly ? per cent. In the presetn epide
mic, however, the loss in hogs has
been almost equal to that of cattle,
each: bclbg within a fraction of 47 per
cent. Of 146,128- animals lost since
tho outbreak of the disease In Michi
gan last fall, 68,776 were cattle; 68,
275 hogs; and the remainder, 9,087
sheep and goats. Hie epidemic of
1008 stands in this respect ns well
as in'time,, midway between those of
1902 and 1914. In 1908. r>6 per cent
of the loss waa in cattle, 37 per ccei\t
In hogs, and approximately 7 per cent
tn other animals.
In tho opinion, of. spccialista these
figures demonstrate the necessity for
more rigid . regulatlo, rs tn regard to
the feeding ot skimmed milk, similar
dairy products and garbage Since
1902 creameries-ha.o bocome much
more common and .the danger to thc
country of their returning uupastour
: Ized rriilk to the farms has become
Correspondingly grouter. In Michigan.
lt has been definitely established that
In Ute early days of the outbreak the
Infection was spread through skimmed
milk fed to hogs, and there IS every
treason to believe that the same thing
occurred in a number of other local
ities. It is easy to pasteurize Mic
skimmed milk and the extra expense
ls not sufficient to warrant the neg
lect of this precaution. Pasteurization
han been shown to be a completo safe
guard against the spread or foot-and
mouth disease through -milk, either to
human being's or to animals.
Tie question ot infected garbage is
mo.'? dlffictul to handle, for by no
ir*eans all ot the meat In this country
ls subject to Federal inspection. In
many <v Section B meat animals aro
slaughtered locally. Cooking v;IU

Against German Gase?.
To stay in ino deadly cloud meant
asphyxiation. Some made their cs
cape. The stubborn ones who ?tayed
at their posts perished without a
wound. When the cloud had blown
past and the German Infantry could
advance, they found trenches vacant
or held only by dead men. Pressing
on they took whole batteries of artil
lery which stood silent and harmless.
Following up their advantages, the
German troops rushed the second
and third lines of'their enemy and
at one point, without much difficulty,
uctually crossed the canal which
forms the base of the great Ypres
ed Milk a
lt seems quite possible that it waa.
The sterilization of garbage intended
for hogs, dt, therefore, like tho pas
teurization of skimmed milk and simi
lar products, a very desirable precau
tion. liv fact, the Federal authorities
do not hestltate lo say that experience
tn this outbreak demonstrator thc
need of otate legislation on thia sub
ject. In thc absence of legislation
the farmer who wt3hes to be sure ot
his skimmed milk should boil lt after
it's return' from the creamery.
Slow Progress in Law.
An echo of the Titanic disaster of
April 14. IJJ12, reaches U3 In the
handlug down of a Federal court de
cision that permits claimants who
filed suit in thc American courts for
damages against thc owners of the
Titanic to withdraw their, claims from
that forum and file them anew in tho
i'liglish courts, lt is stated that the
transfer was occasioned by diversity
of American and British laws and rul
ings. It appears that, if the defend
ant steamship company's application
for a limitation of Its liabilities Should
bc- sustained, tho maximum amount
recov'irebluc by nil the claimants to
gether would bc, under American law,
197,000, and under British law it
would bc $300,000. The presumption
is that the maximum amount must be
distributed pro rata among thc liti
gants whose dalma are sanctioned by
the court. Tho reason for the trans
fer to Kngland is therefore obvious.
One of these litigant?, however, has a
claim for $:100,000 for Ute loss of her
husband. Since death claims must,
it is said, bo filed within a year aftei
tho loss lt is contended that the with
drawal of her-claim before American
courts is tantamont to, the abandon
ment of thc item. Tao progress of
the Titanic litigation is no very tine
exhibition of the law's expedition.

first, and ic tu include far more con
testants. The plans now are to have
the contest on the 4th of July, and
have other celebrations In connec

windows are usually bedecked on that
day. the ccontest will Inccrease tho of- |

the c4ub had to do with what it could.
This-coming one is to be much larg

In Fast Game of Baseball at
Park Yesterday After
The Central High School ot Green
ville defeated thc local high school
team yesterday afternoon In a game
ot baseball played at the ' b?*",vall
park in Anderson. The game waa a
walkover at the first, Greenville scor
ing six ruus in the first few innings.
After this first outbreak Anderson
tightened and in the last Innlug ran in
three runs, thus bringing the acore to
a much more creditable one than wan
before. The final acore waa 0 to 0
in Greenville's favor Error on both
teams and many long hits set ved to
enlivon the game. Anderson's rally
in last frames seemed to be good for
a tie game, if not for a win, but by
some pretty work, Greenville sewed
the game up in abort order.
