As the result of bringing intoj
Kansas two herds of Wisconsin
cows affected with the hoof and
mouth disease, a third herd of cat
tle near Mulvane has become in
fected. State and federal inspec
tors say that a part of a herd of
86 cattle belonging to Louis White
a farmer about three miles south
of Mulvane, are infected. Mr.
White discovered that one of his
animals was sick, notified Taylor
Riddle, state live stock sanitary
commissioner at Mulvane. Mr.
Riddle sent Dr. Van Vorhees of
the state's veterinary staff who
made an examination and report
ed that the case was suspicious.
Dr. Marion Imes, federal veteri
narian stationed at Wichita, was
notified and he sent Dr. Daniel
Devine, of the federal staff who
confirmed the diagnosis, pro
nouncing the animal as being af
flicted with hoof and mouth di
sease. The entire herd was at
once quarantined. A special
quarantine district two and one-
half miles square was established j
around Mr. hite s farm. The
herd will be appraised and as soon
as the regular trenches can be
excavated the herd will be shot
and buried in quick lime.
Mr. White purchased a load of
attle at the Wichita Union Slock
fards January 21, and shinned
them to Mulvane where they were
unloaded and placed in the San-
la l e yards. This was several
lays after N. W. Wheeler ship
ped his Holstein stock from Wis
consin. Ihese cattle were also
laced in the Santa Fe yards. The
authorities think that White's
attle were either infected from
the Santa Fe yards or nerhans
persons who visited the farm of
N. W. Wheeler, about six miles
from the White farm, carried the
infection in their clothing.
Taylor Riddle yesterday ap
point Geo. T. Donaldson, of
Greensburg, as a deputy state in
spector and sent him to Belvidere
to inspect three car loads of cat
tle belonging to Lyon & Steele.
These cattle passed through the

being held by the sheriff of Kiowa
Inspectors have auarantined
100 head of. cattle belonging to
Osborn & Rawlings, near Volley
Center; 129 head of cattle belong
ing to Ben Tjaden, in Kechi town
ship; 200 head of cattle belonging
to William Hoofer and J. Areen-
bright, two miles east of the
Wichita Union Stock Yards, and
several cattle near the stock yards
and belonging to Page House. All
these cattle were in the stock
yards recently, when Taylor Rid
dle decided not to allow any more
cattle to move out of the vards.
The cattle are being isolated in
order that their identity may not
be lost.
Dr. Hobbs, assistant state vet
erinarian from Manhattan, was
added to the stale's staff and was
sent to Winfield to relieve Dr.
Schoenleber, state veterinarian,
who comes to Wichita to assist
Taylor Riddle.
H. L. McDonald, a federal ex
pert on disinfecting, has arrived
from Ohio to assist Dr. Marion
Dr. Imes expects other federal
inspectors to arrive from the east
today, and as soon as they all get
here he will organize his field
forces and proceed to disinfect the
farms of N. W. Wheeler, J. C. Du
laney and Louis White.
Taylor Riddle announced that
the quarantine on poultry ship
ments excepting the vicinity of the
quarantined farms had been rais
ed. A proclamation was issued from
the office of Taylor Riddle in To-
peka asking that all public sales
in the stale be discontinued un
til after the hoof and mouth di
sease has been samped out.
Four hogs and a herd of 18
cattle infected with the foot and
mouth disease were slaughtered
late yesterday on he farm of J. C.
Dulaney, near Winfield. This
stock was appraised at about $3,-600.-
N. W Wheeler's herd, near
Mulvane, which was shot and
buried, was. appraised at about
$2,500, making a total value of
about $6,100.

Now is the lime to buy auto

different effect on this class of
merchandise than on many others
It is held as contraband and the
rubber producing countries have
been hit pretty hard so far as a
market place tor their wares are
concerned. The result has been
that they have had to throw the
available supply on the markets
and this has knocked the prices,
much to the benefit of the auto
mobile owner.
The prices on auto supplies are
cut practically in two. The tire
that a short tune ago cost $29 can
now be purchased lor $18. Other
rubber supplies have dropped in
a corresponding measure. Not
only have the new supply prices
dropped, but the local dealers
have received notice that the com
panies will give them credit for
the difference in the present and
former prices on all supplies now
on hand. While the dealer will
gel a much lower price for his
supplies the change will give an
impetus to the automobile busi
ness, for the heavy expense of up
keep has made many a man hesi
tate about owning a machine.
The chances are that this low
price is only temporary. When
the markets of the world are again
open to the rubber producer the
prices will probably soar again.
In the meantime, however, the au
tomobile owner will probablv
make hay while the sun shines
