DIPPING HOGS IN GOOD DISINFECTANT IS RELIABLE REMEDY FOR VERMIN AND MANGE (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) The destruction of vermin is of im portance in the production of swine. Practically all swine are infested to a certain degree with the common hog louse, and unless the animals are freed from this pest it is apt to retard their growth. Although lice may'not be the direct cause of death, still their pres ence lowers the vitality of the hog and predisposes him to attack from infec tious diseases. One of the first req uisites in preventing an outbreak of cholera -is to put the hogs in as perfect a physical condition as possible, and it Is also obvious that the animals should be in perfect health in order to fatten rapidly and economically. Common Swine Pests. Lice are common pests among swine, and vigorous and persistent treatment Is required to eradicate them. The farmer should frequently examine his bogs about the ears, flanks, and insides of the legs to see if they are lousy. The lice may be readily seen traveling among the bristles, particularly In the parts just mentioned. The eggs, or "nits," are small white oval bodies at tached to the bristles. Dipping does not as a rule destroy' the vitality of these eggs. Swine should be dipped repeatedly in order to kill the lice that hatch out of the eggs after the previ ous dipping. These lice are blood sucking parasites, and by biting the hog and sucking blood they cause a great deal of skin irritation. Further more, they act as a drain on the vital ity of the hog, through the loss of blood which they abstract. When lousy the hog is usually restless and rubs on posts and other convenient objects. The coat looks rough and harsh. This pest is transmitted from one animal to another by direct contact, or by con tact with infected bedding or quarters. Mange, one of the most common of Bkln diseases, is- caused by a mite which feeds on the skin. I£ is much more common and severe on young stock than on the older animals, al though the mature animals as well as the young are likely to become affected if the disease is Introduced into the herd. Mange is characterized by the formation of crusty scabs on the face and neck and along the back, and in se vere cases the mite n^ay be found on any part of the body. The hair is stiff and erect, giving the pig a very un thrifty appearance. All newly purchased stock should be examined for lice and other skin diseases, and if any are found the hog should be treated before he is turned with the rest of the herd. Dipping to Destroy Vermin. To free hogs from vermin they should be dipped two or more times at intervals of about two weeks, prefer ably 15 to 16 days for lice. Several dippings may be required before com plete eradication is accomplished. Do not fall at the same time to clean and disinfect thoroughly the sleeping quar ters. Cresol compound (U. S. P.) may be used for dipping and disinfecting. For dipping, mix the proportion of one gallon to 100 gallons of water for dis infecting, in the proportion of three gallons to 100 gallons of water. Goal tar stock dips and nicotln stock dips may also be used to treat hogs for lice. For use they are diluted with water in accordance with directions sup plied by the manufacturers. Gresol compound, coal-tar dips, and nicotln dips may be purchased at the drug store. For mange crude petroleum is more effective than the ordinary stock dips. It is also destructive to lice. The vat may be filled with the oil or half-filled with water before the oil is added. If one dipping does not effect a cure the treatment should be repeated in one or two weeks. Use of Crude Petroleum. Owing to the great variation in the composition of crude petroleum from different localities and the greater in jurious effects of some crude oils than of others, crude petroleum, if of a kind not used before, should be tested on a few animals before extensive treatment is undertaken. Animals treated with crude petroleum should be provided with plenty of shade and water. They should not be dipped in oil in very cold or very warm weather. One of the best varieties of oil for use on live BtocK is Beaumont crude petroleum, and oils of similar composition are more likely to be satisfactory than those which vary widely from it. The specifications are as follows: Specific 3 A HEALTHY BUNCH OF YOUNG PORKERS. gravity ranging from 22% to 24% de grees Baume 40 per cent of the bhlk boiling between 200 degrees and 300 degrees C. 1% to 1% per cent of sul phur. Another remedy for mange is lime sulphur solution. This remedy is not highly effective in destroying lice. It nlust be used warm (100 degrees F.), and the hogs should be dipped twice with an interval between dippings of seven to ten days. Lime-sulphur dip may be purchased in concentrated form, or it may be prepared at home as follows: Slake ten pounds of quick lime with sufficient water to make a thin paste, and stir in 24 pounds of fine sulphur (flowers or flour). Boil this mixture for two hours in 25 or SO gal lons of water. Allow the sediment to settle in a tub or barrel. Draw off the liquid into the vat (carefully avoid disturbing the sediment), and add suf ficient warm water to make 100 gal lons. The dipping solution in the vat may be maintained at the proper tem perature by steam brought by pipe or hose from a boiler. Durable Dipping Vat. Dipping vats are made of various materials, but the most durable is ce ment. The vat should be set in the ground at a convenient place where there is good surface drainage away from the vat. A suitable size for a vat in which to dip hogs is 10 feet long at the top, 8 feet long at the bottom, 1 foot wide at the bottom and 2 feet wide at the top. It should be deep enough so that the hogs will be completely immersed in the dip and will not strike the bottom of the vat when they plunge. If possible, the vat should be located so that a 2-inch drain pipe may lead from the bottom of the vat to facilitate emptying and clean ing, otherwise it is necessary to pump or dip out the contents of the vat in order to clean It. Do not use old, filthy dip, but clean and re-charge the vat before dipping again if the dip has be come very dirty or If it has stood a long time In the vat. The end where the hogs enter should be perpendicular and the entrance should be on a slide. The other end should slope gradually, with cleats to provide footholds for the hogs for emerging after dipping. A dipping vat is very useful wherever a large number of hogs are kept. .... WHEAT BRAN IS BEING USED Outside Coating of Grain Is Residue of Wheat and Is Considered Best •-•'•i-:-.. of Cow Feed. (Prepared by th« United States Depart merit of Agriculture.) Bran Is the outside coating of grains, and Is the residue or by-product from the manufacture of flour. Wheat bran may be derived from winter or spring wheat, and there is little dif ference In Its composition from either source. AUDUBON COUNTY JOURNAL From a physiological standpoint wheat bran Is one of the very best feeds for cows. It is slightly laxative In nature, and generally tends to keep the cow's digestive system In good con dition. The price based upon Its pro tein content is usually so high that most commercial dairymen combine it with other feeds in which protein costs less per pound. Aside from the value of the nutrients which it contains, it has a special value in a feeding mix ture, as it gives bulk and adds to the palatability. Wheat bran may be used when the rest of the grain ration is lacking in palatability or is of a con stipating nature. It is especially good when the roughage Is all dry. The best grades of wheat bran are light weight, with large flakes. Some of the large mills put the sweepings from the mill Into the bran therefore, it is usually best to buy the highest grade of bran, provided the mills grading it are reliable. The output of small country mills is usually of excellent quality. Bran contains a high pro portion of phosphorus and potash In its ash content.

An old legend tells of a magician who claimed that he had found how to make a charm to insure happiness. Then as pupils flocked to him he set them to making a small mosaic or picture out of various tiny col ored stones. Each stone represent pi I a single one of the elements that make up happiness. When the mosaic was done it was to be a charm that would Insure happiness for all the rest of life. But, alas! though the mosaic was put together ever so carefully, it did not work as he had planned. One after another his pupils left him in disap pointment, their faces as sad, their hearts as heavy, as when they came. "It must work!" sighed the magi cian. "I have studied the rules until I know I am right. I have just the right proportion of good health, suc cess, wealth, education, leisure and all the other things needed." Then one day came a new pupil, who put together the mosaic of hap piness, and when it was done he took it as a gift to a friend whom he loved. And this mosaic proved to have the desired charm, for It gave happiness both to the one who made it and the one who received it. "Ah!" said the magician. "I have found now what was missing in my happiness mosaic. It can become a sure charm only when it is made for others." 1 Not So Ignorant. Immediately after the Zeebrugge raid the proprietor of a saloon In Do ver displayed a placard outside his house bearing the words: "Naval raid on Zeabrugge." A sailor noticing the wrongly spelled word, dropped In, called for a drink, and said to the proprietor: "You've got that word 'Zeebrugge' spelt wrong." "Hov I?" said the proprietor.
