Government 'Mans to Completely hradi
rate Ticks Which arc Infecting all
the l-'armcrs of Southern States.
The Bureau of Animal Industry of
the United States Department of Agri
culture is resuming active operations
for the eradication of the cattle ticks
which prevail in the southern part of
the country and transmit the contagion
of Texas fever of cattle. Its men are
being sent into the field ami prepara
tions are being made to push the work
of extermination vigorously during the
warm weather, when the ticks are most
Since this work was begun, two years
ago, a area of about Tili,00(1 square
miles, or almost the size of the Slate of
Georgia, has been freed from tin; ticks.
As a result the quarantine on southern
cattle has been either modified or en
tirely removed from this area. Last
year work was done to a greater or less
extent in the States of Virginia, North
Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Ala
bama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri,
Arkansas. Oklahoma. Louisiana, Texas
and California, and it is proposed this
year to continue in flu; same States
with the addition of a small portion of
Mississippi. Most <>f the work has been
and will continue to be done in sections
contiguous to the quarantine line, the
object being to push the line farther
south from year to year; but encour
agement is given to local work in any
part of the quarantined district in the
assurance that when any considerable
area is rendered lick free it will be re
leased from quarantine.
The work is being done by coopera
tion between the Federal Government
and the State and local authorities.
Congrca has appropriated $2130,000 for
the year beginning duly 1st and it is
expected that the States and counties
where the work is carried on will dupli
cate this sum. The committee on ap
propriations of the House of Represen
tatives expressed itself very strongly
to the effect that the States should bear
a reasonable share of the cost and that
the Federal work should he mainly con
fined to States where cooperation is re
Various moth ?da for exterminating
the ticks are used, including trans
ferring the cattle from pasture to pas
ture at suitable intervals, and dipping,
spraying and hand dressing the cattle
with oil and oil emulsion. In sections
where there are large herds and large
ranches dipping on a large scale is prac
ticed, cither alone or in connection with
pasture rotation, while in other sec
tions, where the cattle on some farms
frequently consist only of a cow or an
ox team, hand dressing with oil is found
to he the only practicable method.
The damage caused by the ticks and
the benefits to follow from their eradi
cation are not generally appreciated.
It is estimated that the Texas fever
tick is responsible for about $40,000,000
of loss annually to the people of the in
fected country, and that it also lowers
the assets of the South by an additional
$23,260,000, making the enormous ag
gregate of $03,250,000. To wipe out
this heavy loss is the object of tin? work
now under way, and tue results already
accomplished leave no doubt that suc
cess is possible, though a number of
years will be required for the comple
tion of the undertaking. Much de
pends upon the cattle owners, who can
either hasten or retard progress accord
ing as they COOporatC?r refuse to assist
in the work.
Literature giving full information as
to the ticks, the disease which they
transmit, and methods for their eradi
cation has been issued by the Depart
ment of Agriculture and will be sup
plied free of charge on application to
the Chief of the Cureau of Animal In
dustry. Washington. 1). C.

"In 1902 I had a verv severe attack
of diarrhoea," says R. x. Farrar of
Cat Island, La. "For several weeks I
was unable to do anything. On March

Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar

relict. I consider it one of the best
medicines of its kind in the world and
had I used it in 1902 believe it would
have saved me a hundred doctor's bill."

Bryan on Prohibition.
Criticised for his attitude on the whis
key question William J. Bryan has is
sued the following statement:
"I have received many letters from
prohibitionists and many from oppo
nents ot prohibition and 1 have an
swered thcrn all in the same way. I ,
have told them that I did not regard
the question as a national question.
While it is an issue in a number of
States, I do not expect it to b^ made
an issue by either the Republican or
Democratic national convention. I have
made it a rule not to discuss questions
outside the platform because the candi
date has no right to inject issues which
his platform excludes.
"In answer to questions about my
own record on tin; subject, I have stated
that so far as my personal habits go 1
am a teetotaller, never having used
liquor as a beverage; but in 1800 I
voted against the State prohibition
amendment because I thought the li
cense system we had, with local option,
was better suited to the conditions wo
had to meet in our State.
"When an attempt has been made to
draw conclusions from this as to what
ought to be done in other Slates I call
attention to the fact that State laws
ought to be made to meet the conditions
existing in the State and that what 1
did in Nebraska could not be a guide in
Stales where; conditions were different.
"In other words, I have refused to
give advice on the question in other
States because 1 am not sufficiently in
formed as to the conditions in the vari
ous States; and I have refused to dis
cuss it as a national question because I
do not expect it an issue in the cam

New York, attended the meeting to
night of the Lincoln Bryan Club. Both
made addresses out lining the issues of
the coming national campaign.
Help for Those Who Have Stomach
After doctoring for about twelve
years for a bad stomach trouble, and
spending nearly five hundred dollars for
medicine and doctors' fees, I purchased
my wife one box of Chamberlain's
Stomach and Liver Tablets, which did
her so much good that she continued to
use them and they have done her more
good than all of the medicine I bought
before. Samuioi. Boykk, Folsom, Iowa.

Washington, .Inno 30. Much interest
is being manifested at tlwi present time
in the vital questions of cotton seed se
lection and the better treatment of the
soil and in the general methods oi cul
ture. In addition to the gathering of
statistics and keeping of records by the
census bureaus of the United Stal
government several bureaus of the De
partment of Agriculture, working in
conjunction with the Slate bui'< atl I,
experiment stations and demonstration
farms, are rendering the cotton grow
ers valuable assistance. Especially
noteworthy arc the endeavors of the
Bureau of Plant Industry, who
gestions, based upon practical demon
strations, may be briefly summarized
1. Betterdrainago of the soil.
2. Use of more horse power and bel

deeper and more thoroughly pulverized
4. Increased quantities of humus or

of leguminous crops, such as peas, ? tc,
and by barnyard manure, farm refuse
and commercial fertilizer.
5. Ample space between r< WH and
