Western Newspaper Union News Serrice.
Pierre.—State Land Commissioner
Hepperlee and Attorney General' John
son have returned from Washington,
where they have been looking into the
causes for delay in the final exchange
work between the government and the
state on the forest reserve. They
found that the interior department
holds that special legislation on the
part of congress is required to com
plete the transfer, giving the interior
department the authority to take such
action.
Assistant Secretary Jones of the in
terior department is preparing a bill
covering the lieu lands in South Dako
ta, Wyoming, Idaho and Washington,
states in which practically the issues
are involved, and. he assures Mr. Hep
perlee and Mr. Johnson that he will
(submit the matter to congress for
consideration at the present session.
The attention of the congressional rep
resentatives of the state interested
was called to the situation, and they
assured hte South Dakota representa
tives that they would push the issue
along.
They also in company with Con
gressman Burke called at* the Indian
department to look into the matter of
Indian land leases in Mellette county.
The state holds a number of tracts in
that county, but since the lease prices
on the Indian pastures in that county
have been placed at so high a rate
that stockman will not lease the In
dian lands, there is no demand for the
state sections. The proposition being
that if the Indian leases are reduced to
a point where stockmen will consider
them, the state tracts in the same ter
ritory can be leased.
Commissioner Hepperlee also had
business with the surveyor general de
partment and with the bureau of the
reclamation service.
Could Save Large Sum.
Pierre.—''Bankruptcy within six
months for any private business, firm
or corporation conductedr on the same
business methods as those of the state
of South Dakota" is the statement of
State Auditor H. B, Anderson in his
last biennial report. He asks. for/the,
creation of a state board of audit anfl
accounts to pass upon every claim,
against the state before it is paid, and
with power to subpoena witnesses and
compel their testimony on any claims
presented. He says that by proper
business methods the state could save
$250,000 every year. He also reiter
ates his condemnation of the contin
gent fund, to which he announced his
opposition in his report two
years
..
fl
ago,
and urge's that such funds be abolish
ed. He also wants a stronger statute
than that of two years ago prohibit
ing state officers and employes from
expending public moneys in travel out
side the boundaries of ,th* state. The
fiscal transactions of the year just
closed are stated io have been the
largest in the history of the. state, tl^e
total amount of warrants issued be
ing $3,607,824.70, which was $135,702
greater than for the previous year.-
State Refuge for Birds. ,tv.
Pierre.—If the comments from the
northeastern part of the state are any
basis as to the sentiment of creating
a state bird refuge for game birds
of the northwest at the old Fort Sisse
ton reservation, the legislature will
certainly be asked to take action, and
will at least consider the proposition
Should such a refuge be established,
the, state would have, control of the
Sisseton in the east and the state
forest yamo preserve in the west,
while '.he government will care for the
national bird refuge at the big Belle
Fourche dam, giving the state three
suiih refugees. The idea has been ad
vancedy that the pta.te might go even
farther in its efforts to aid in the prop
agation of galne, by creating: other
refuges where large tracts of state
land are owned in several parts of the
state.

Many Attend Cholera Schools.
Brookings About 125 farmers have
attended the hog cholera schools dur-*
ing the summer, fall and winter as
conducted by the state live stock san
itary board. The most recent school
was held last week at Madison. The
value of these schools to the South
Dakota swine breeders is almost in
calculable, and the work of Hon.
Frank R, Cock, secretary of the board
and Dr. C. C. Lipp, veterinarian at the
state college, who conducts the
schools, is certain to make for a great
saving in the breeding of hogs. South
Dakota farmers can ill afford to allow
hog cholera to rob'them of $3,0Q0,000
worth of hogs another season. The
method of conducting the schools, is as
follows: First the class is organized,
and the names of those in regular at
tendance are taken to be ?sent to the
offide of the live stock sanitary board.
Those who have attended all the ses
sions of the school farm or farins. At
each school Dr. Lipp has given a series
of six lectures and a demonstration,
and farmers attending have taken co
pious notes. These lectures cover the
following points The cause of hog
cholera means by which cholera is
spread the prevention of cholera with
out the use of serum, through sanita
tion, quarantine, isolation, disinfec
tion, balanced rations, etc., (as much
emphasis being placed upon preventa
tive measures as upon vaccination)
syniptoms of cholera use of the ther
mometer in detecting infected ani
mals post mortem appearances of
hogs dead of cholera production and
testing of serum production of virus
difference between serum and virus
under what conditions should serum
alone be used when is It best to use
the double treatment when is it best
to use. the single treatment followed
by the double treatment instruments
needed for vaccination sterilizing of
instruments disinfecting the skin
best location for injection and hold
ing the hogs for injection. The lec
tures are followed by a demonstration
of actual vaccination of hogs, with
instruction on the proper care of the
animals after vaccination. Questions
and quizes are frequent. Four of
.these schools have been held this year,
at Mitchell, Redfleld, Aberdeen and
Madison. They are absolutely free of
charge to those attending, there being
no tuition or other fees connnected
with them. To make them fully ef
fective, it is expected that the county
agent, the Commercial club or some
other organization will give due pub
licity, furnish meeting place, and look
after the. necessary preliminary de
tails. It is quite probable that one or
more Schools will yet be held thia
winter, but the location has not been
announced. No farmer can afford to
neglect an opportunity of attending
the lectures and demonstrations wfcen
one of these schools is held in his vi
cinity.—By Geo. A. Starring, Agricul
