THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM. WEDNESDAY, DEC. 24, 1913
OVER MAIN STREET
Two Bartenders Fined $5 and
Costs For Mixing in
FOWL A SURE WINNER
Even Fights Police Attaches
in Court Room This
Winning two turkeys at the gun club
turkey shoot, giving one with another
man to charity and then being attack
ed by a bartender and a twenty-six
pound much-alive foul with a wing
stretch of more than four feet, is yes
terday's experience for J. C. Hoover.
John Thompson and Ed Milligan, bar
tenders, were fined $5 and costs in
police court for the attack.
After breaking ten birds and being
presented with the turkey for his skill
with the shotgun. Hoover took the big
bird under his arm and carried it
around until he was ready to go to his
home on Easthaven avenue.
Hoover ran to catch an interurban
at Fifth and Main streets. The turkey
kicked with powerful legs and squirm
ed loose with strong wings.
After the struggle Hoover saw the
green lights on the car far away on
Main street, and went to call a taxi
cab. He had the turkey swung over his
back when he was confronted by Mil
ligan, just closing the saloon where
he and Thompson tend bar.
What Hoover and Milligan believed
to be a friendly argument, started in
which Hoover was accused of winning
the turkey unfairly
Then Thompson struck one blow on
Hoover shoulder, jarring the sensi
tive turkey Into action.
While ate two tried to exchange
blows, the turkey bested the fighters
and hats flew In every direction. The
big wings beat both men as they tried
to strike each other. Then Milligan
lnterferred and he was almost floored
by a blow from the bird.
Patrolman Rammert entered the me
lee with a club but the turkey was a
game bird and knew ft had only a
short time to live. The four wrestled
together but were lost and bewildered
tinder the force of the blows the tur
key was still administering with feet
Two witnesses lnterferred; Rem
inert took the party to jail; and Hoo
ver subdued the excited turkey with
soothing words and strong arm.
Every one concerned looked tired
and haggard In police court this morn
ing but the turkey which sat on the
floor with its feet tied, using its long
wings to strike the feet of any body
who ventured near enough. Hoover
was released and purchased an ax
which he took home with his prize.

RAW PORK CAUSES
Federal Health Authorities
Issue a Warning Concern
The risk of contracting trichinosis
from eating raw or uncooked pork is,
according to health authorities, par
ticularly great at the Christmas sea
Bon in certain sections where persons
are accustomed to prepare special un
cooked pork products for holiday con
sumption. The illness which may result from
eating raw pork, known as trichinosis
is caused by a parasite, or a worm mi
croscopic In size, which occurs in the
flesh of hogs. There is no known ef
fective method of treating the disease.
The patient dies or recovers appar
ently irrespective of the nature of the
treatment. In many cases patients who
have survived the acute stages of the
disease have had their health more or
less permanently impaired.
Statistics based on microsopic in
spection of over 8,000,000 hogs during
a period of nine years in this country
have shown that 1.41 per cent, of the
hogs were infested with live trichi
nae. This fact alone makes it import
ant that every one who eats pork
should for the protection of health eat
it only when thoroughly cooked. In
this country there is no inspection for
If trichinosis Is to be avoided these
rules should be observed:
First, refrain from eating pork in the
raw state, including dried or smoked
saugages, hams, and in fact, any kind
of meat product made up wholly or In
part of raw pork.
8econd, thoroughly cook all pork
which is to be eaten.
The trichina parasites die and be
come harmless when exposed to a tem
perature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit for
a short time.

"WE NEED BOOKS'"
County Officials Give Up in
Despair Over Board's
Has the state board of accountants
the right to prescribe the kind of
books the county officers of the state
of Indiana shall use in keeping their
This question is today apparently
as baffling as it was yesterday be
fore County Auditor Bowman went to
Indianapolis to confer with the attor
The state law requires that all rec
ords shall be kept in "well bound
books." There is no question that
the loose leaf system gives a well
bound book when the volume has
been filled and filed away, but it is
not so certain that the loose leaf
ledgers meet the requirements of the
law before they have been permanent
County Loses $1,000.
Should the county be compelled to
return to the old system it will neces
sitate the purchase of a number of
special machines to be used on bound
volumes. This will cost the county
close to 51,000 and will compel the
employment of a number of extra
assistants in the offices of the court
The offices of the clerk and recorder
will be affected more than any others
if the ruling of the board of account
ants is sustained, as these offices are
compelled to keep more permanent
records than the others.
Miss Grace Smith, deputy county
clerk, stated today that . should the
clerk's office be compelled to return
to the use of the old style records she
would be in favor of abandoning the
use of machines altogether and mak
ing all the entries of the office with
pen and ink.
Mr. Bowman today refused to dis
cuss the results of his conference
with Attorney General Honan, stating
that publicity would be of no assist
ance in settling the difficulty. He
gave it as his opinion that additional
connection of the name of a well
known concern engaged in the manu
facture of machines to be used on
bound volumes, with the stand of the
state board of accountants would do
more harm than good.
FINDS NO PROFIT
IN EGG BUSINESS
Poultry Dealer Says He Has
Lost Money in Enter
prize. "H. C." has sent the following com
munication to the Palladium:
A club was organized near 1,000
years ago and membership consists
of .08 of all the poultry raisers of the
country. I will give my experience,
although I still exist and will say it
is not by the profit on eggs. Look
up the hen's actual natural production
of eggs and nature says in season a
hen will lay one setting of eight to
twenty eggs, set on them, and hatch,
say, 75 per cent, then brood her lit
ter, which takes three months. Then
nature says rest, but perhaps one
third of the flock will duplicate their
first litter, so a fair estimate of thirty-six
to forty eggs per hen, is the
condition of nine-tenths of all flocks
as raised by farmers and those that
don't feed high priced forcing feed !
now for the flocks that are fed forc-j
?ng feed regardless of cost. My ;
flock of fifty pullets are of the best i
strain that money could buy and 1 1
kept strict account.
In 1912 November, 23 doz.
In 1912 December, 39 doz.
In 1913 January, 61 doz.
Average prive per dozen, 41c, $50.43.
To get this result my houses cost
$62, my pullets cost $42.50, and feed
for three months cost $27; net cost,
$131.50, to county nothing for labor
and I think that any one that expects
to get rich quick will give the egg
business the go-by. H. C.
