THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 29, 1896.
Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report ABSOLUTELY PURE AN INSIDIOUS PLAGUE Hog Disease With No Effective Remedy. The Affected District Is Near Mesa City. All Danger from the Spread of the Plasue Is Over Owing to tha : Strict Quarantine. Professor Stowe Devol of the experi ment station at Tucson was in Phoenix yesterday, he having 'been over on the eoth side for a few days investigating the swine plague there. In an' interview Professor De vol said that the plague was now confined to that side of the river, the disease on this side having been wiped out. The plague, he says, is distinct from hog cholera. It is bacterial in nature and contagious. It affects the lungs first, then the lymphatics and tear ducts, following along all the secre tory glands and organs. The government has been spending large sums of money in the efforts to discover a remedy, but no specific has yet been found that will effectually cure the plague. The only effective remedy to keep the plague from spreading is to separate and destroy the afflicted animals. The swine after showing symptoms of the disease will live from twenty-four hours to three weeks, but in no instance have they recovered. There are now about 250 hogs on the south side that should be slaughtered and Professor Devol has left orders to that effect. The affected district is right around Mesa, covering a radius of six miles, running south and east. It is declared by some of the ranch ers that they first noticed the symp toms of the plague about two years ago, but the first outbreak did not oc cur until December last. The disease or its contagious nature was not rec ognized until Professor Devol made his first visit in April, when called in consultation by Dr. F. O. Richmond who was then territorial veterinary surgeon. Whenever the quarantine instruc tions have been followed to the letter the disease has been conquered from spreading. There are losses in excess of $100,000 ddrectly and indirectly in the valley since the plague was first noticed, but what has been saved by the proper observance of quarantine Instructions far exceeds that sum. The plague is now checked from spreading and if the instructions of Professor Devol are carried out it will soon be a thing of the past. Hogs are now being released from quarantine for shipment and already nine carloads have been shipped out of Glendale and several more will be shipped shortly. The greatest care has been taken in the matter of releas ing the quarantined hogs until all danger is past, but it is now perfectly sale on this side of the river. REAL ESTATE TRANSFERS.

"I find thousands of letters from everywhere, all asking for information. Strange as it may seem, in all that pile, (indicating a collection of several hundred letters) there is not a single mention of the tariff or thn gold standard. I am astounded at the tone of tome of the letters I am receiv ing, and it appears to me that theailver wave is sweeDing over the east with as much force as it has engulfed the sooth and west."

This Is the summer of everybody's discontent, but all's well that ends well and all summers end even in Ari zona, and kicking about the heat don't make the weather any cooler. The best way to enjoy one's self in Phoe nix at this time of year is also the cheapest way, which is simply the patronizing of the electric cars after sundown or in the early morning. It is cheaper, safer and healthier than horseback riding and physicians re commend it as such. One gets to breathe more ozone in one ride on the electric cars than they otherwise would In a year. Breathers of ozone are never known to have headaches and are always glad they are alive. Had you noticed that?
