$4.OOO,OOO FOR LIVE STOCK

The live stock industry in South Car

In total value that of the state's cot

what startling statement was made
by Dr. W. K. Lewis. state veterinariar
and Insusctor in charge of live stoel
and sanitary control work. ligure:
for live stock, which includes cattle
hogs, sheep, horses and mules, tots
$84,000,000. while the cotton crop, tak
ing the state department of agricul
ture's estimate of 776.000 bales and al
lowing the high average price of 21
cents per pound, values $77,600,000.
The above statement will come as at
eye-opener to many South Carolinian,
who had no idea that the live stool
industry in this state had grown tc
such proportions.
Dr. Lewis, who represents both the
federal government and the state it
the control of disease among animals
attributes condition to three things
Tick eradication, hog cholera work an(
the advent of the boll weevil. I e be
lieves that the solution of the bol
weevil problem is in live stock raising
and sees for South Carolina great pos
sibilities in this Industry.
Since 1914 when the legislature
made an appropriation to fight th<
cattle tick, thus eliciting federal sup
port to the extent of giving South Car
olina a separate district. great wor
has been (lone In eliminating the prin
cipal drawback, the tick. The federa
government has rais;ed its quarantini
entirely and the state (tuarantine rest:
only on the costal plane. Ilog cholera
has gradually been eut down throngl
'the preventive treatment until to da:
'.he loss through this liosase is est
mated to be only $50,000 a year. Di
'LewiR has been in chargo of the Soul
Carolina office since its establish let
and to the untiring efforts of him an
of his force, South Carolina can a
tribute an actual and potential sayit
of about $2.000.000 a. year, not I
speak of the Increase noted in 1i1
stock. In 1914 the farmers of tl1
state took an actual and potential lo:
from the cattle tick of $1.5(51.0(0) an
from hog cholera of $5)0,000 ). Grad ua
Jy theae items have diminishedl.
. Referring to that strip of coast:
ph1in which the state still holds i
cattle tick qiiarantliii,' Dr. Lewis wa
asked what could he done to eradi[al
the tic k there also. ".liservance
