teams and rrobably a team from the
Simplex factory are to play In the
Independent Basket-ball tourney here
early next spring.
There will probably be abut twelve
teams entered In the tourney which is
to be held at the Coliseum and all the
teams will probably share in the gate
receipts, the winner of the tourney
getting the biggest per cent and so on.

Orover Cleveland Alexander, for
mer Cub pitcher, was alive and well
four days before the armistice was
declared, and at that lime expected to
be back in God's country in time to
make the 1919 spring training trip
with the north side club. Alexander's
rogment, however, is with the Amer
ican army of occupation in Germany,
which may delay his return until the
middle of the season.
This information was sent to Cub
headquarters recently in a letter from
Mrs. Alexander, who is wintering in
Newport, Ky. She wrote that she
had Just received word from her hus
band, dated Nov. 7, that he was safe
and sound to date.
He wrote that he was on the firing
line at the time, however, and the Cub
officials will not feel sure of the pitch
ing prowess of Alex the Great for the
next pennant race until soemthing is
heard from him after the armistice
One of the greatest all around foot
ball players of recent years was Ar
thur Bluethenthal. '13, rovfhg center
of the Princeton team of 1911, and All
Amerlcan center. Bluethenthal volun
teered for the ambulance service be
fore America got into the war and
won the French War Cross for his
bravery at Salonlca. He transferred
to the French air service and was
shot down and killed , . while on a
Just what a prominent part the Cub
pitchers played in the bringing of the
National league pennant to Chicago is
shown by the twenty-three shutouts
registered by Chicago pitchers during
the season. Of this number eight
kalsomlnlngs were performed by
Vaughn and seven by Tyler. Vaughn
is tied with Burleigh Grimes of the
Dodgers for shutout honors in the
National league. It speaks well for
Grimes, who, pitching for a second di
vision club, achieved as many shut
outs as was registered by Vaughn
with the league leaders.
Jimmy Clabby, now en Anzae cor
poral, recently arrived in Italy with
his vestment, having sailed from Syd
ney. N. S- W., on Oetobed 15. It is
probable that he did not reach the
battle front In time to get into the
fighting, as the troopship on which
he sailed wns due to reach the shores
of Italy about the date of the signing
of the armistice.
The fact that he was prevented from
taking a hand In the actual fighting,
of course, does not detract from the
glory of the American boxer, who cast
his lot with the fighting Australians.
His decision to enlist with the Anzacs
came about as a result of the excel
lent treatment accorded to him by the
fight fans in the Antipodes, where he
has spent so much of his time in re
cent years. A day or two before he
boarded the transport a dinner was
tendered to him by a few of his many
friends in Sydney, and he wns pre
nented with a wrist, watch, a silver

Two years ago the owners of the
New York club fitted up a clubhouse
elope to the Macon park and it is
barely posslbla that the team may
return there next spring, but Indica
tions point otherwise. Under a con
tract signed in 1916. the New York
club has the refusal of the Macon
park for training each spring for a
period of five years, but must give a
definite answer before December 31
preceding. It is thought that Hug
gins will decide this year against a
return to Macon. The hotel accom
modations are good and the ball park
leaves little to be desired, but the
Yankee leader Is Inclined to favor a
warmer clime for training his ball
tossers. He looks with favor on Flor
ida and It is likely that the Yankees
will go there. Three or four cities
are under consideration at this time,
'jut the final decision will not be made
until early in the new year. While

It is requested that the people of the city give a hearty welcome to the
heroes of the French army who are to appear here, and that every business
house and residence display the French tricolors as an expression of the
friendship between the two great republics, America and France.
Every musician in the French army band has seen active service dur

Their presence in Richmond is an honor that should be received with the
Swine Plague and Treatment
By J. C. KLINE.
Since the Swine plague is causing
much loss among hogs in this county,
I am publishing seme information on
this disease. The scientific name of
the disease is Hemorrhage Septicemia.
It is commonly called stockyards fever,
swine plague, fowl cholera, etc.
This disease is caused by a germ.
It Is highly contagious. The organisms
causing this disease are widely dis
tributed in nature. They are not very
powerful until they pass through ani
mals as they have during the last few
In very acute cases red spots will
be noted on various parts of the body
especially around the ears. The ani
mal shows symptoms of general blood
poisoning. No forms of this kind have
been located in Wayne county.
Tho acute cases as found in Wayne
county the disease occurs as a form
of pneumonia, the lungs become de
generated and cheesy. There is la
bored breathing, a dry spasmodic
cough, a slimy discharge from the
nose, inflamed eyelids, constipation
followed by diarrhea. The animal
looses considerable flesh and may die
in severe cases in from 1 to 2 weeks.
The above form many times changes
into chronic types, in which case the
acute symptoms subside, and the
cough and evidence of pulmonary in
involvment continues for considerable
time: A chronic inflammation of the
Joints may occur. Some of the ani
mals die, but many of them get over
In most cases when the disease is
well established, treatment is quite
useless. Well -animals can, however,
be made immune from the disease if
treated before infected. All well ani
mals should be removed from the herd
and placed in non-infected quarters.
If part of these become infected it will
be necessary to remove them to new
quarters again. Infected hogs should
be given a good dry place at night.
They should not be allowed to sleep In
manure piles and around wet straw
stacks. At this time of the year one of

the best ways of preventing- hemor
rhagic septicemia is to give the ani
mals dry sleeping quarters.
All hog houses and yards infected
with hemorrhagic septicemia should
be thoroughly disinfected after the an
imals become well. The interior o
the houses can be disinfected with
liquor cresolis compound (U. S. P.)
or carbolic acid 6 ounces to 1 gallon
of water. The yards can be disin
fected with copper sulphate 5 ounces
to a gallon of water. The best method
of applying these disinfectants is by
the use of a spray pump used in spray
ing orchard trees.
Hogs that are out of condition may
be benefited by allowing them access
to the following mixture:
Three bushels charcoal, 8 pounds
salt, 2 quarts air slacked lime, 1 bush
el wood allies, 1U pounds copperas,
dissolved in water and sprinkled over
mixture, then dry.
This mixture should be left before
the hogs at all times. The condition
powders sold on the market are too
high priced. and will not in most cases
give any better results than the above
