In, Sauk county, Wisconsin, 1 the
school chfdrea have for the past tw
yean made a social surrey from all
the school districts in the county. All
tiata was collected and the county
tuperintendent had some surprising
and interesting data concerning the
social conditions of the county. The
following represents the social condi
tions of the county: name of farmer,
owner or tenant, length of time on
farm, size of farm, number and kind
of modern machinery, barns and
equipment, and silos; whether or not
the farm homes were supp'ied with
such conveniences as running water,
hot and cold, hard and soft; bath
room, laundry room; power washer;
telephone, lighting system; screened
in porch; ice bos; septic tank; vac
uum cleaner; sewing machine; piano;
gasoline or oil stove; typewriter; and
other data.
Would not such a survey furnish
a means for our teachers as well as
the students to become acquainted
with the community?
Hog cholera caused a loss of seven
ty millions of dollars in the United
States during 1913. The resulting
loss of pork is estimated to be over
one hundred milMons. Iowa was the
heaviest loser, having lost two million
hogs or two-sevenths of the entire
loss for the year. The loss in Ohio
was fortunately less than of Iowa. No
doubt this loss of hogs and pork has
had its effect in forcing the price of
pork upwards, thus the consuming
public suffers from the loss but . the
producers' loss is not reduced in any
way. It is, therefore, as much to the
advantage of the consuming public as
of the producer to have such diseases
successfully combatted even at public
The United States government an
nually emp'oyes several cats and ex
pends about $18.50 yearly for each
pussy. This sum is used largely for
purchasing meat and milk as food for
the cats. The cats are used in all
large commissary depots and by the
Post Office Department. The latter
department of the government keeps
more than 400 cats. The New York
postoffice alone expends more than
$60 annually for cat meat and the
postal authorities consider the money
well spent.
