Stamping Out Douriue
c f
At a meeting of the state live-:*
stock sanitary board held in Hel
ena this week steps were taken
to stave off a federal quarantine
against Montana horses because
of the presence of dourine among
horses in the eastern part of the
state. The board adopted regu
lations prohibiting the running
of stallions in a certain described
region and ordering the gather
ing of all stallions in this region
before August 1st. Also mares
and stallions must be gathered
at a certain time and a certain
place for inspection by the state
veterinarin or his deputy. No
stallions with dourine will be al
lowed on the public range in any
part of the state. The order as
issued follows:
"To whom it may Concern:
Wheras, it has come to the know
ledge of this board that dourine
exists in the state of Montana
and, upon investigation, it is
hereby determined that the said
disease does exist; and,
"Whereas, the board is author
itatively informed that it is the
intention of the United States
government to immediately quar
antine the state of Montana in
case said disease is not eradicat
ed, or confined, or studs prevent
ed from running at large:
"Therefore it is hereby order
ed that no studs shall run at large
within the following described
area, and no mares shall be bred
within the following described
area until their studs have been
tested and found free from dis
ease, and no mare that has been
exposed to dourine shall be bred
until it ha> been blood tested for
dourine and released; and,
"It is further ordered that all
owners of stallions and mares
shall, when demanded to do so by
the state veterinary surgeon or
his deputy gather all the stallions
and mares and have them at a
given place on a date named by
the state veterinary surgeon or,
his deputy, for the purpose of
having the same tested and ex
amined; and,
"It is further ordered that all
studs within the following de
scribed area shall be gathered
and held in restraint not later,
than August 1, 1913, and on and
after that date the state veterin
ary surgeon be, and is hereby
authorized to gather all studs
found running at large on the
open range in violation of the
law, and to castrate them, and
if found diseased, to castrate or
destroy them, the expense there
of to be borne by the owner of
such studs.

fact that the heavy growth o£

cease, and in the event of a dry

after such a wet Juns, great care
will need to be exercised to pre

In the mountains the danger
will not be so great, however,
un( ] er any but extraordinary con

situations, there is more trained

men, and the season now on has
allowed patrol crews to put trails
and telephone lines in good repair
for use during the fire season.
In this vicinity a more inten
sive patrol and better equipment
for fighting fire are provided.
The co-operation of the forest
users has been all that could be
desired. In one instance in the
Long Pine, two ladies successful
ly fought what might otherwise
have been a serious fire. There
are other instantces in which a
