THE NORTH PLATTE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE.
BLOUSE STYLES FAVORED PADDTJ EVENING TO ERADICATE TUBERCULOSIS FROM LIVE STOCK THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES FOR EVENING COSTUMES FAmMLC DONNER MRS. .COW'S TALK. El If 1S w Hi mm. s CvVX , It Is evident thnt blouses nntl smocks nro asplrlug to rival evening frocks nnd the chances are that they are go .Ing to succeed. There Is no end to ;the fanciful ways In which they nro mado and nothing Is too cxtravagaut In the way of trimming them. For din uer and theater wear they have ad vantages and they appear In brilliant and light color?, and 4n combinations .of two colors In materials, with dec orations that call Into play many ad ditional hues. The peplum blouse, tlw apron blouse and the smock have u gay future ahead of them. Georgette? crepe, chiffon and net with chnntllly nnd gold-run Inccs now ly recruited In their company nro the flimy mediums In which evening blouses are mnde. Worn with skirts of black satin they achieve n toilette that tuny be worn with assurance. Among color combinations, emer nld or even more vivid greens with black nro distinctive. Copper colored crepo with gold lace, champagne with black embrolderyt pencock blue and light green show the fondness for vir ile colors. There Is a new sort of dec oration that looks like tho finest bend work done In ninny colors. But It Is Velvet Becomes Just bow It happens has never been explained, but It happens every little while that n certain style seizes the at tention, simultaneously, of women all over the length nnd breadth of the land. Merchants wnko up some morn ing to And thnt nppnrently every worn nn tins made up her mind over night that she wants one kind of fabric, one partlculnr color, one style. Just now It seems thnt every woman wants a velvet gown, In addition to tho satin frock for which thero has been a uni versal demand. It seems that tho shops saw tills wave of demand rolling In, and that designers nnd manufac turers were prepared for It, Designers require supple mntcrlnls for frocks nnd they have determined on chiffon velvets In very wldo widths, nnd tho finest grades of velveteen, as best suited to tholr purposes. These tire used for afternoon mill evening dresses. The heavier grades of vel veteen will answer for suits, but the more llexlhlo stuffs nre liked for every thing nnd chiffon velvets arc in such demand thnt they bring very high prices. The best grades of velveteen me by no means chenp. By way of recompense, velvet frocks are very simply designed and fussy decorations nre conspicuous by their absence on them ; so that the minimum of goods Is required. These, points nro apparent In the pretty frock for nftornonn, shown at the left of the two pictured here. It Is of wide, light-weight velveteen In marine blue. This skirt has six round plults set on nt each side widening the hip a sort of paint put on in dots set closo together nnd appears in motifs on girdles of georgette like the blouse, Blouses rh one color nro enlivened with rich girdles of gold or silver bro cade. Embroideries In silk and in Deads, often used together, and oc casionally mock Jewels and gold tlssuo confess thnt nothing Is too splendid for tho blouse which is to bo worn In the evening, nnd narrow bands of dark fur And themselves placed to tho best advantage on laco and georgette. Two pretty examples of tho mode nre shown here.

"And when food for us Is more ex pensive the farmer charges more for tho milk. You sec wo don't give our milk exnctly. We give It In return for the payment of food nnd board." "A good Idea," snld the other cows. "Moo, moo, you're right. We don't give our milk nt all. We give it In return for something, for two things, In fact. "Yes, moo, moo, Mrs. Cow, we agree with you.

(Prepared by tho United States Depart ment of Agriculture) With llvo stock nnd their products on n higher plnno of values than in previous years thero has come to stockmen nnd farmers a keener reali zation of tho need to stamp out anlmnl diseases. This Important development in live-stock raising was shown repeat edly at tho conferenco of state and federal sanitary officials who assem bled in Chicago to dlscusa tubercu losis eradication. Whereas in tho past tho unwilling ness of cattlo owners to havo their herds tested In order to locate tho disease has been a limiting factor In tho work, now there nro wulting lists, nnd tho problem confronting state and federal ofllciuls Is to meet tho de mands. Coupled with thnt problem Is tho need for improved methods of testing nnd n moro uniform system ot certifying to tho lienlth of nnlmnls so that stock may bo shipped Interstate with a minimum of inconvcnicnco nnd delay. First Conferenco of Its Kind. Tho conference, called by tho fed eral bureau of nnlmnl Industry to dis cuss theso problems', was the first of Its klpd, and 158 delegates from va rious parts of the country were in at tendance. In opening the meeting Dr. John IL Mohler, chief of tho bureau, emphasized the Importance of conduct ing dlscnse eradication in a manner that Is practicable and workable as well as being- scientifically correct. Llkcwiso ho announced tho desire of the federal government to receive In formation from nil sources to supple ment tho work of United States de partment of agriculture Investigators. A problem of considerable importance Is tho tuberculin testing of cattlo nt public stockyards. Such testing Is aimed to check traffic in diseased an- Imnls and to protect communities which havo llttlo bovino tuberculosis rrom infection by cattlo that aro dis eased or of doubtful health. This con dition applies especially to dairy stock and to breeding cattle, but In prevent ing interstate movement of tubercu lous nnlmals, ilve-stock sanitary of ficials rccognlzo tho need for doing tho work In tho most expeditious man ner. Discuss Merita of Tests. In addition to tho subcutaneous test, which has been the most widely used In detecting tuberculosis in live-stock, two other tests tho intradermal and ophthalmic received close study nnd discussion. The Intradermal test, In tho experience of many of the dele gates, is especially useful In testing rnngo cnttlc and those which nro un accustomed to hnndllng. It has a field of usefulness, likewise, In very liot or cold weather when tho atmos pheric temperature makes dlfllcult un nccurato diagnosis with tho subcu taneous test, which depends on a se ries of animal-temperature rendlngs. Tho ophthnlmic, or oyc test, Is an- other means of diagnosing tubercu- .osls. This test Is- npplled to one eye, the other being left untreated for com parison, nnd a characteristic appear ance Indicates whether tho disease Is present. Tho eyo test thus fnr has been used chiefly either In combina tion with tho other tests or nt? a meuns Df obtaining further cvldenco on sus picious cases. Tho discussion Indlcnt :d tho usefulness of all three tests In letectlng tuberculosis In llvo etock, jnd when used in combination the lests appear to be nn almost unfailing means .of diagnosing tho dlscnse. As a supplement to the conference, ex perimental testing by tho three meth ods was conducted nt the Union stock yards. Accredited Herd Plan Indorsed. Delegates from all parts of the coun try reported keen interest in their lo calities In the so-called accredited herd plan, under which tho federal state authorities grant a certificate to owners of herds found to be freo from tuberculosis nnd which arc maintain ed in n prescribed manner. The prin ciple of tho plan was warinly Indorsed as a constructive means of tubercu loifls eradication, nnd the conference fnvorcd Its contlnunnce nlong present lines or with additional requirements that will Incrcnso Its effectiveness. A topic receiving specinl emphasis was the need for painstaking and thorough disinfection of premises where dlscnse has been found, followed by continu ous attention to sanitation of build ings and surroundings. Tuberculosis In Swine. Eradicating tuberculosis from cat tle will practically solvo the problem of controlling tho disease nmong swine. Thnt was tho opinion of vet erinary experts experienced In the handling nnd postmortem examination of swlno received nt tho principal mar ket centers. By means of n simple and practical marker, hogs may be tattooed with distinguished letters nnd figures, and when disenso Is found by postmortem examination, tho Identity of such animals Is known. With ' a simple syBtcm of records It Is thus possible to trnco a shipment to the farm from which It enmo and stnmp out Infectious dlscnscs nt their source. Tho evldcnco submitted showed thnt swine become infected with tubercu losis, principally from cattle, either by following them In feed lots or pas tures, by receiving Infected dairy by products or by eating tuberculosis carcasses. In addition thero are nu merous other, but less common meth ods by which swlno contract tuborcu losls. Insist on Thorough Work. Tho discussions revealed a wldo dif ference of conditions nnd problems, many of them Intricate, but there was unanimous ngrcemcnt on the main topic to eradicate tuberculosis from llvo stock throughout tho United States and to do It nt the earliest possible time. Farmers and stockmen of tho country virtually havo sot n pace in their demands for testing that is faster than was anticlnotcd a few years ago, but tho llvo stock sanitary ofllclals nro not to bo outdone. Thn federal bureau of animal Industry Is now producing nbout thrco times na much tuberculin ns n year ago, and If Is being distributed freo to federal, state, county nnd municipal ofllclaln Those In charge of the work In differ en states recognized that the present progress is but n beginning, nnd tc avoid confusion thero must bo uni form policies nnd methods. Thoi stressed also the Importance of doing tno work thoroughly nnd well, so there will bo no reaction nnd loss of confidence. Llvq stock owners may bo of great Immediate assistance In tho work. with much benefit to themselves, if they will isolate all animals hrnucht Into their herds until such anlmnls aw definitely known to bo hcnlthy, and1 also will mnlntaln clean and snnltnn surroundings. Tho gradual Incrcns in tno number or llvo stock in the United Stntcs nnd also In the shin- ment and exchange of nnlmnla mnko disenso control nnd eradication a prob lem demanding tho closest co-opcrn tlon nmong llvo stock owners, sani tary ofilcinls and the nubile In crenernl The regulations which havo been found necessary aro directed, the con ference showed, nt n small mlnorltj of conscienceless neonlo who. If nn. checked, would spread dlscaso nil over tno country. In nddltlon mnny of the provisions regarding hnndllnc of llv stock in Interstate traffic aro a check on carelessness or Indifference to pub lic weirnre. It Is believed that tho great majority of llvo stock men. knowing these facts, will support reg ulations which nro aimed to correct tho conditions. SCARCITY OF FEEDER CATTLE Baby-Beef Industry Is of Increasing. Importance and Is Receiving . Attention of Farmers. ' " (Prepared by tho Ur-ltod States Depart ment or Airricuuure.) With tho growing scarcity of feedor cattlo and the advance In vnluo of farm lands, says tho United States de partment of agriculture, tho baby-beef industry is or increasing Importanco and Is receiving the nttention of farm ers In nil llvo stock sections of the country.
