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
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
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
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. ....
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
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.

Magician Finally Discovered Just
What Was Lacking in Magic
That Insured Happiness.
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
