Dr. Cormack, who was called into
Clark county last week to look over
some afflicted stock, was seen by a re
porter Saturday evening where he was
stopping at the Arcade. The reporter
was anxious to learn whether anything
very serious was troubling the stock in
Clark county. The doctor assured his
interrogator that there was nothing to
cause alarm. He said the deaths in the
liera of cattle were the result of im
proper feeding. The doctor was aho
called to see a herd of cattle near
Waverly, in this county, and he remark
ed that the same trouble was found there
that was discovered in Clark county.
The cattle had been feu on one kind
of feed so long, and that kind was so dry
and they had to consume so much of
it in order to secure sufficient nutriment,
that their digestive organs were unequal
to the task. That is all that is troubling
the stock, said the doctor.
But what interested the reporter the
most was the doctor's statement with
reference to th$ price whijeh some of
the Clark county people are disposing
of their fotty cent wheat. Dr. Cormack
dined with a gentleman in Clark county
on Thanksgiving. The gentleman was
a farmer. He was milking twenty to
thirty cows, and he declared that they
paid him well. He was not complain
ing of the hard limes. The farmer in
question had not raised ,a very large
quantity ot wheat, but that which he
bad raised he was feeding to his hogs.
He had by actual test aqd experience
ascertained that by converting his forty
Cent wheat into pork he was getting
eighty cents a bushel lor it. In other
words, a bushel of wheat ted to a hog
would cause his hogship to put on
enough extra flesh and bone to make
that wheat, at the present price
worth eighty cents.
The doctor stated further that he
found scores of farmers in Clark county
who had been gradually increasing their
herds for the past tew years. The part
of the coun'.y which the doctor visited
might well be called a stock country,
said he. More and more, with each
passing year, the farmers in that locality
aro working into stock, and they unite
in declaring that it pays.
Mr. Cormack, respondipg to a ques
tion, said he knew of no reason why Cod
ington county farmers could not make
stock-raising pay as well as the farmers
of Clark county seem to make
He beleivea that it is only a question
of time when the people of Scuth Dakota,
.nd especially those residing in the Sioux
valley, will come to realize that there
is money in stock and that i s
better,to convert wheat into pork than
to sell it on the market at forty, ttftv.
or even sixty cents a bushel.
