NINE OUT OF TEN "SICK" HOGS
HAVE HOG CHOLERA
The Department of Agriculture is
in receipt of frequent inquiries con
cerning methods for distinguishing
hog cholera from other swine diseases.
The specialists in hog cholera in
vestigations answer these inquiries as
Although at first thought this mat
ter of diagnosis appears to be of
prime importance, in reality it is not
so important or so difficult as it
seems. It is estimated that at least
90 per cent of all deaths of hogs from
disease in the United States are
caused by hog cholera. Therefore,
in the case of any fatal outbreak the
chances are about nine to one that
the cause is hog cholera. It is true
that other infections may and do
frequently complicate outbreaks "of
hog cholera, but in such cases the
germ of hog cholera is the primary
cause of the disease; and if we can
take care of tbe germ of hog cholera
the pig will usually overcome the
other infections himself.
The symptoms exhibited by hogs
sick of hog cholera are not sutliciently
distinct from those produced by oth
er maladies, so that a positive

diagnosis can be made only through
a careful consideration of a number
of other factors in connection witii
the symptoms. From a practical
standpoint the important thing is to
recognize hog cholera as soon as pos
sible after its appearance In a herd
in order that antihog-cholera serum
may be applied b fore the disease
progresses too far. Good serum may
be depended upon to protect well
hocrs, and even to cure a large per
centage of those in the earliest stages
of tbe disease, but it will not be of
much avail when used upou hogs that
are already visibly sick.
The following suggestions to farm
ers are offered as an aid to tue eariy
recognition of hog cholera in a herd :
1. Keep posted concerning the con
dition and health of hogs on other
farms in your neighborhood. Sick
hogs on a neighboring farm are a
positive menace, for the germs of hog
cholera are easily carried on the feet
of men or animals.
2. Look over your herd regularly
in order that any sick hogs may be
3. If any hogs in the herd are
found to be "off feed" or appear in
anywise sick, separate them immedi
ately from the remainder of the herd
and keep them and the main herd
under close observation daily. If
there is a tendency for the disease to
spread in the herd, tbe trouble is
probably hog cholera. This diagnosis
may be continued by killing one of
the sick animals and examining the
organs in the manner described in
Farmers' Bulletin 379.
4. When the tirst symptoms of sick
ness are observed, an immediate
change of feed sometimes corrects
the trouble. This is particularly
true of swill-fed hogs.
5. If there is any tendency for the
disease to spread in the herd, do not
temporize, but immediately treat the
herd with serum from the State col
lege or State live stock sanitary
board. Prompt administration of the
serum is essential to succes3.
6. Kemember that hoc; cholera kills
millions of hogs where other diseases
kill thousands. Dismiss from your
mind all thought of such diseases as
"lung plague," "infectious pneu
monia," "pig typhoid," etc., for
these are generally merely fanciful
designations given to hog cholera by

THE U. S. CREAM SEPARATOR
In these progressive days when we
see so much machinery working en
the farm aud elsewhere, how many of
us by comparison of the present with
the past, stop to think what it all
We can scarcely appreciate to what
extent the stress of former conditions
has been relieved by the wonderful
inventions of the past 40 years. The
mowing machine has taken the place
of the scythe, the hand labor of plant
ing and harvesting has been greatly
relieved by mechanical processes.
What about other work and imple
ments that are more closely connected
with the housewife? The cream sep
arator, for instance, is in most in
stances, handled and washed by the
women folks. It is just as important
to have some of the tedious house
work done by improved machinery as
it is to have the outside farm work
done by improved methods.
The Vermont Farm Machine Co.,
of Bellows Falls, Vt, and Chicago,
111., manufacturers of the United
States Cream Separator, has invented
a mechanical washer for cleaning
perfectly the skimming device of the
separator bowl. It helps wonderfully
in the washing process and relieves
those having this duty to perform of
much hard labor. Mechanical wash
ing of the United States Skimming
device can be done iv about half the
time usually required by other sep
The Uuited States Cream Separator,
manufactured b.v the Vermont Farm
Machine Co., of Bellows Falls, Vt,
has three especially prominent fea
tures which stamp it the most sani
tary separator iv existence, viz., the
Non-rusting Nickle Silver Metal, the
Mechanical Washer, the Removable
Sanitary Liner to bowl chamber
which beeps the milk from touching
the cast iron of the bowl chamber.
This liner is held in place by a very
simple looking device and it is easy
to remove and wash with the other
These features constitute a great
advance in separator development—
particularly along sanitary lines.
