Not So Bad as Represented.
I seems that the story reported to
and printed in last week's Union
anent the condition of C. F. Mc
Gonagle's stock was somewhat over
diawn. I is never the purpose of
the Union to exaggerate or distort
facts, and in this particular case the
stories coming to the Union were
considerably modified. I is well to
state here that before the article in
question was printed it was read to
F. A. Lowell, president of the
Princeton Humane society, and the
words, "Since that time McGonagle
has somewhat improved conditions,"
were added in his presence.
I now turns out that, according
to the report of Sheriff Shockley,
the live stock on McGonagle's farm
while some of it was thinwas
not in bad condition for wintering,
and that the shelter was fairly good.
It also appears that there was no in
tention of arresting McGonagle, but
to make an inspection and ascertain
the truth or falsity of a complaint
which had been entered by Theodore
In justice to Mr. McGonagle it is
only fair that these explanations be
made, as the story, although printed
in good faith and as reported, evi
dently contained inaccuracies. Mr.
Lowell is anxious that these correc

from his intent to misrepresent any
Valuable Pointers on Hog Cholera.
The United States department of
agriculture is in receipt of frequent
inquiries concerning methods for dis
tinguishing hog cholera from other
swine disease, and the specialists in
this disease answer the questions as
Although at first thought this
matter of diagnosis appears to be of
piime 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. Theiefore,
in the case of any fatal outbreak the
ehances are about nine to one that
the cause is hog cholera. I 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 eare of the germ of hog cholera
the pig will usually overcome the
other infections itself.
The symptoms exhibited by hogs
sick of hog cholera are not suffi
ciently distinct from those produced
by other maladies, so that a positive
diagnosis can be made only through
a careful consideration of a number
of other factors in connection with
the symptoms. From a practical
recognize hog cholera as soon as pos
sible after its appearance in a herd
in order that anti-cholera serum may
be applied before the disease pro
gresses too far. Good serum may be

disease, but it will not be of much
avail when used upon hogs that are
already visibly sick.
The following suggestions to farm
ers are offered as an aid to the early
recognition of hog cholera in a herd.
1. Keep posted concerning the
condition and health of hogs on
other farms in your neighborhood.
Sick hogs on a neighboring farm aie
a positive menace, for the germs of
hog cholera are easily carried on the
feet of men to aniamls.
2. Look over your herd legularly
in ordei that any sick hogs may be
3. If any hogs in the herd are
found to be "off feed" oi appeal in
anywise sick, separate them immedi
ately from the remaindei 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, the trouble is
probably hog cholera. This diagno
sis may be confirmed by killing one
of the sick animals and examining
the organs in the manner described
in Farmers' Bulletin 379, which is
sent free upon application.
4. When the first symptoms of
sickness 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
college or state live stock sanitary
board. Prompt administration of
the serum is essential to success.
i Remember that hog cholera
kills millions of hogs where other
diseases kiH thousands. Dismiss
from your mind all thought of such
diseases as "lung plague," infec
tious pneumonia," "pig typhoid,"
etc., for these are generally merely
fanciful designations given to hog
cholera by uninformed men
