It was the scene of a gold strike nine years ago and thousands braved the hardships and hazards of the trail. It proved a disappointment, though much pay ore was developed near by. The circumstance which wiped the town of Roosevelt from the map was peculiar It resulted from a landslide two years ago, starting near tine source of Mule creek, a mile and a half from the settlement.

There were few residents in the town at the time of the slide and all escaped with their possessions, owing to the slowness of the avalanche. OFNORTH DAKOTA E ABANDONS JUDGE W. H.

CLEAN STABLES ARE NECESSARY WASHINGTON, Nov. 10.—Farm ers' bulletin 473, goon to be issued by Secretary Wilson, contains an impor tant and most comprehensive state mant of facts on bovine tuberculosis. The bulletin deals with the history, nature, symptoms of the disease how it spreads, how a herd is infected, the tuberculin test, and its prevention and suppression. "Tuberculosis," the bulletin states, "is a widespread disease affecting an imals and also man. Human beings and cattl-e are its chief victims, but there is no kind of animal that will not take it. Hogs and chickens are quite often affected horses, sheep and goats being affected but seldom, however. The disease is contagious. It spreads from cow to cow in a herd until most of them are affected. It is slow in developing and may not become'no ticeable for months or even years. The tuberculin test, which can not do harm to the healthy cow, reveals the germ in a few hours, and always proves successful when in the hands of an experienced veterinarian." "The disease is common among hogs," the bulletin goes on. "The pub lic abattoirs report that a serious per centage of hogs inspected is found to be tuberculous. The losses among cattle and hogs are enormous, amount ing to millions of dollars annually." Turning to the infection of human beings with the tuberculosis germ through cattle, th? bulletin says: "Milk is the staple food of infants and young children and is usually taken in the raw state. If this 'milk is taken from a tuberculous cow it may contain millions of living tubercle germs. Young children fed on such milk often cont'ract the dis-ease. and it is a fre quent cause of death among* them. "Meat from tuberculous cattle is not so likely to convey the infection for several reasons. It does not so fre quently contain the germs, cooking de stroys those that may be present, and, lastly, meat is not consumed by very young children. As to th-e spread of the disease, the bulletin says: "Sooner or later the tu berculous cow begins to give off the germs of the disease. The germs es cape by th-a mouth and nose, the bow els, in the milk, and in discharges from the gentail orgains. When the germ3 are being given of in any of these ways the disease is known as open tuberculosis. The bulletin concludes with: "Dark, dirty, crowded stables are favorable to tuberculosis. Under these condi tions the disease spreads rapidly and is only kept out with difficulty. "Clean, airy, veil lighted stables, on the other hand, are unfavorable to th-e development of the disease. If brought into such a stable it does not spread so rapidly and is not s» diffi cult to get rid of as in the first case. A well built, sanitary stable need not be made of expensive material or of elaborate design, but should have plenty of light, air and drainage. "Light is very important. Direct sunlight i3 a great destroyer of germ life. Tubercle bacilli soon die if ex posed to sunlight. It is a disinfectant, always ready to work without cost." LAST EDITION FIVE GENTS PRESIDENTIAL IN EACH STATE Circular Letters Being Sent Out by Chairman of Progressives Leading Officials of Each State are Also Sent (By Associated Press.)
