Miss Grace Fitch, one of the popu lar local operators left this week for a several weks' vacation in Btirgoyne, Hnrlowton and Lewistown. A. J. DuFrene, deputy state veteri narian, of Billings, Montana, caused to be published in this issue of The Record an official notice regarding cattle dipping in Musselshell county and giving the different locations of dipping pens throughout the country in this part of the state in which cat tle are effected by scab. In Musselshell, A'ellowstone, Sweet Grass and Northern Rosebud counties, in order to eradicate the dread disease of cattle scab, the live stock sanitary board of this state is doing everything within its power to help the cattle men attain this end. It is requested that all the cattle within the above mentioned counties be dipped before July 1, and in case this request is not complied with the state will take the necessary steps in seeing that the cattle are dipped. It is very important that cattlemen in these counties immediately dip their cattle and do everything possible to rid the effected cattle of the scab, for unless this disease is positively eradi cated by the first of January, 1913, a federal quarantine will be placed on these counties, which lasts for two years In ease of a federal quarantine the stock business in these counties will practically come to a standstill, as it will be impossible to ship any cattle to the eastern markets during the time of the quarantine. The work in this locality is under A. J. DuFrene, deputy veterinarian of Billings. He will be glad to give the cattlemen any assistance possible. REFUND OF TAX UP TO COUNTY.
