By A..D. MELVTN, Chief U. S. Animal BareaH. : STOCK nistng, a;lwm.ys an Import ant breach of agriculture, is be coming of still greater importance .is our population increases and as i he devetopateat of oar country pro gresses. We depend ss tote Industry, sup '. bat also to keep up the fer- tne soil for the production ' crops. growing shortage in the beet .,,. ,i o the country has been irmtlul cause for alarm in recent ears We no longer have the former abundant supplies of cattle raised cheaply on free range. The range is being cut up and fenced off into farms or diverted to sheep graxing. In addition there is the great increase in the price of corn and other feeds, -wnich has made cattle feeding i isky and expensive undertaking. Beef Gets Scarcer. Estimates by the bureau of statis tics of the department of agriculture show that in the last six years the nuirber of beef cattle in the United States has fallen from 51.5,00 13 SC. 030, 000, a decrease of fitirm and a half million, or 30 percent. Market reports show that receipts of cattle at six western markets from January 1 to March 19 have decreased to the ex tent of 73,000, while sheep show a de crease of 230.MO and hogs at 11 markets have fallen off 9S9.O0O. This decrease is reflected in the number of animals slaughtered under the meat inspection. In Janpary and: February, as compare! with the same months of last ear, the decreases amounted to 77,951 cattle, 21,228 calves, 381.304 sheep, and S9C,8S8 swine. The demand for meat, on the other hand, has been increasing along with the population. According to the census we have 29.000,000 more people to feed than we had 20 years ago. More Meat Needed. Under these conditions it is essen tial that we should increase our pro duction of meat and especially of beef cattle. With the disappearance of the open range there will have to he a readjustment and a change in methods. We must not only grow more stock and better stock, but it is becoming more important than ever that we should prevent and overcome the heavy losses from animal diseases. To this end the bureau of animal indus try has been working for many years. The most serious disease of live stock in this country is tuberculosis, which occurs chiefly among cattle and hogs. Then we have hog cholera. Texas fever of cattle, contagious abor tion of cattle and horses, glanders of not only for a large part of our foodi horses, scabies of sheep and cattle, aiacKieg oc young caiue, ana a numoer of ether diseases of less importance. Loss From Tuberculosis. I few years ago I had occasion 10 make careful study of the economic loss from tuberculosis in live stock, and I found that this amounted to not less than $23,000,000 a year. In the meat inspection service we find that about 1 percent of the beef cat tle and 2 percent of hogs are af fected with tuberculosis in some degree. Texas ferer in the south and the ticks which spread the infection are charged with damage estimated at S40.000.000 to $100,000,000 a year. For many years the hog raising industry has suffered heavily from hog cholera. The losses vary considerably, but are estimated at more than $18,000,000 a year, and sometimes exceed a million dollars a year in each of the several of the large hog raising states. Heavy Loss From Blackleg. Blackleg has caused losses esti mated at 10 percent of all the calves in infected regions when vaccine is not used. Contagious abortion is J probably second only to tuberculosis n the losses that it causes to the breeder. Scabies of sheep and cattle, while not causing any great mor tality, have handicapped the sheep and cattle industries by causing unthrifti ness and decreased wool production, and by necessitating quarantine re strictions. The bureau of animal industry through its scientific researches and Its administrative work is helping stock owners to prevent and treat ani mal diseases, has eradicated some and is eradicating others, and protects our stock against the introduction of con tagious diseases from other countries. Peier and Tick. Nearly seven years ago we began systematic work. In cooperation with state authorities, lor the extermina tion of the t'ckg that spread the in fection of Texas fever of cattle, and in this time we have freed from ticks and released from quarantine - - BAICIlfil POWDER Ahsolaieiy Pure Economizes Batter, Flour, Eggs; makes the food more appetizing and wholesome The only Baking Powder made from Royal Grape Cresm of Tartar about one-fourth of the territory that was infested with ticks a.t the time the 'work was begun. The territory cleaned up so far amounts to more than 187,000 square miles and is larger than South Carolina, Georgia, Ala bama, and Mississippi combined. For 15 years the government, with cooperation of certain states, has been engaged in eradicating scabies ft sheep and cattle. These diseases for merly existed practically through out the region west of the Missouri river, but the area has been gradu ally reduced until we believe that we are now within sight of the end of this work in most of the territory re maining under quarantine. It is very unfortunate, however, that local con ditions have made it impossible to do much effective work in Texas to ward getting rid of the diseases. The t state of Texas is still under quar antine for sheep scab, and the area quarantined on account of cattle scab ies includes the Panhandle and the ex treme southern portion. The government has been and is willing to do its part, but the state lacks the necessary quarantine Taws and appropriations rf money. Hog Cholera. Hog cholera has presented one of the most difficult scientific problems ever encountered in the study of ani mal diseases. After many years of research, the scientists of the bureau of animal industry discovered that this disease was caused by a germ so minute that It passes through the finest filter and can not be seen with the strongest microscope. We know of this organism only by the effects that it produces. The bureau has de veloped a serum of vaccine which is highly effective in preventing the disease, and by utilizing this remedy it should be possible in time o eradicate th disease from the country. The federal" government has not under taken to prepare and distribute this serum to hog raisers, but this is be ing done by over 30 states. Vaccinating For Blackleg. An effective method of protecting young stock against blackleg by vac cination has long been known and lor 15 years the bureau of animal industry has distributed such vaccine free of charge to stock owners. Over a mil lion doses a year are distributed and the reports received show that the vaccine is highly effective in prevent ing the disease. The losses after vac cination are less than one half of 1 percent, whereas in unvaccinated ani mals in infected regions the deaths have amounted to more than 10 percent of the calves produced each year. A Cow Infection. Among th most important scientific worK pone dv tne bureau auring me past year has been that relating to contagious abortion of cows. The losses caused by this trouble are probably heavier than has been real ised. The bureau investigators have discovered that the germs causing this disease frequently occur in milk and are sometimes also found in the ton sils of children, where they have probably been conveyed In milk. The germs cause distinct lesions when in oculated into guinea pigs. Just what bearing this organism may have on human health is not yet known, but in the present state of our knowledge it seems that we have and additional reason for advocating the pasteuriza tion of nfilk. We are still studying the disease and trying to work out methods of prevention. Jiwat the Germs. It should be borne in mind that In fectious diseases are caused by cer tain specific germs or parasites, and that if we can once eradicate the In fection or the parasite responsible for the disease, and afterwards exclude the infecting agent, we will have no more of the disease. It is our good fortune In this country to be free from such destructive plagues as rinderpest, foot-and-mouth disease, and contagious pleuro-pneu-monia, surra, and many tropical dis eases which ravage the herds and flocks in other parts of the world and from which our live stock are pro tected by our system of Inspection and quarantine of Imported animals. Much aieoi Destroyed. The meat inspection constitutes the largest branch of the bureau's work. During the last fiscal ear, inspection was carried on at 940 establishments in 259 cities and towns, ind ovor 59 .million animals wero slaughtered un der inspection.

Pres ent and Fnrirre by a Mexi co City Paper. From Mexican Herald. 1 X writing the current history of Mexico one can turn over a new leaf every day. Speaking of the case of Barbarous Turner, the San Francisco Argonaut says: TTbe theory that any man has a right to go to another country and there be protected in any impertinence or meddling which may suit his fancy or his interest, is one which should be got rid of here and elsewhere." It is evident that the Balkans are lagging behind Mexico in the war marathon. Our only suggestion regarding nego tiations with rebel leaders is not to leave any out. An Ohio editor at least 'is sure that he would -rather be right than be pres ident of Mexico. If that bombardment with rifles an noys Saltillo. send it down here; we wouldn't notice & few rifle shots. Don't be disappointed that the new government has not done in a 'month what the last regime could not begin to accomplish in IS months. Madero was an honest man with a weak character." says the London Pall Mall Gazette, but he mistook his mis sion "so far as to attempt te held a wolf by the ears." - "No one present with present day conditions in Mexico was surprised at 'what happened last month in Mexico City," says the American Review of Reviews. "An impractical visionary idealist, devoted to abstract Justice and consumed with the theory of civic righteousness, but woefully laeking In the strong arm of executive ability and the capacity for enforcing his policies has been faced for more than a year, on the one hand, by the direct attacks on public order by bandits and discon tented chieftains and on the other by the sullen restlessness of a people with neither the aptitude nor the training for self government.'' The London Times frankly says that the most Mexico can hope for is a gov ernment not worse than that of Diaz, 'which, with all its defects, "was bet ter than the perpetual civil war which seems to be the only alternative to it." No one with Mexico's true interests at heart can help lamenting that Mex icans do not have a more general and patriotic realisation of the fact that continued disorder in this country is the one thing today that hinders prog ress and even may Jeopardize national existence. The great difficulty that every new government in Mexico encounters is that, wafted into office on a wave of popular enthusiasm, the populace does I not go home to work and give the in coming regime time to develop its pro gram, but they stand on the street corners and want to see the miracles begin. If old office holders are not kicked out in a week, it nation-wide reforms and campaigns are not under way in a month, the howls begin. Moral: Give the new government time and fair trial. Foreign comment which is based on (h. nn...t.tilHiiv that Iia 1.a .(Him. in Mexico was upholding a rule of real ( aemocracy in mis country, is onen really ludicrous. Having soon realised the utter- hopelessness of inaugurating such ideals, the Madero government was endeavoring to enforce measures that went further than any dictator Mexico has ever known. The effort was doomed to failure or to ruin of the country, because the administration in power had neither the strength of character nor the experience for the work. . President" Taft's last official social function at the white house was the entertainment of forty Washington newspaper correspondents at dinner. We never heard of a newspaper man in Mexico being an official guest any where except at Belen. This combination always wins and in Government Hill you'll find all three.

Eye witnesses of the shooting ere unable to testify. PargtB and Garcia, the two mea wonmled bv Buckmann at the time be killed Luis Benavidee. are still in St. Joseph's hospital. Garcia is sot out of i --xer. He was shot through the lung. The grand ury's report relates to the investigation of butchers, charged with failure to give bond and keep records of cattle they bought and slaughtered. AH who had not complied with the law were informed that they would be ex pected to give bonds and keep records. Charges against the school directors of district No. 1 were probed, but the grand jury found that the grounds were not sufficient to justify their removal from office. The jurors recommended that a. heat in? slant be installed in the court house. Among the inmates of the jail the grand jurors found a young man, whose name they could not learn, who is con fined there only for food and shelter. He is badly crippled and seems to have no friends or relatives, according to the report, and they .recommended that he be cared for at some other institution. The jury, which has been ia session since March 18, examined 145 witnesses, found 42 true bills and eight no bills. The two no bills included in the final report were for Adolfo Hvder, of Barelas, and Phil Eickinann, of EI Paso. Although judge Kaynoids instructed the jury in regard to the anti-gambling htw. no mention of any alleged viola tions was made in the report.

The eiti aens' ticket, composed of two "progres sives" and three Democratic candidates, was nominated here and two women were iven places on the ticket. The candidates named follow: Marcelina Garcia, Dr. C. O. Harrison and Mrs. John W. Maves. Democratic candidates, and H H. Dorman and Mrs. Jacob Weltmer, "progressive" candidates. The Democrats and '-progressives" both held their conventions Tuesday. iweetine at 2 p. m. Shortly after the Democrats had organized their conven tion, a committee from the progressive convention and one from the Republican central committee, waited on the Demo crats with a view to selecting a bi-partisan ticket The Democrats agreed to give the progressives one candidate and two each to the Republican.- and the Democrat. When the Democratic convention re convened at night, tile conference report was presented, but was almost unani mously rejected. The fusion with the progressives then resulted. A notable feature of the last few days was the activity the women took in the matter and three out of the five names on the Citizens' ticket were on a list of aeeptMe candidates filed with the committee of the different parties bv the Santa Fe Woman's dub. This means practically the solid endorsement cf this ticket by the women of the city. The Republicans will bold a convention today, at which time It Is said they will nominate a partisan ticket of their own and contest for its election at the noils on next Tuesday against the bi-partisan ticket.

Official an nouncement was made by the officials of the Old Dominion Copper Mining' and SmeUinj? eompany yesterday that I. H. Barkdoll would succeed George Kingdon as mine superintendent. Bark doll has beea assistant to the super intendent of the Copper Queen Mining company, of Bisbee, for the past two years and has the reputation of being an efficient executive. Kingdon. who recently resigned, will go to Cananea. as superintendent of the Greene Cananea. At a meeting of the Globe city coun cil, city tax collector Piny an announced to the couneil that he had appointed tugene Miller as attorney for the col lection or delinquent taxes. Superin tendent George Cook, of the Water company, and W. H. Keegan, of the Taxpayers' association recommended the purchase of a water tester with which to test the city meters and weigh the water. . In the Superior court, the charges of burglary against Santos Hernandez and Donato Chaves were dismissed on motion of the county attorney. The defendants were Indicted with one P. L. Corral, who has been sent to the penitentiary. The board of supervisors has refused to allow county superintendent of schools T. P. Howard his expenses for meals while on an official inspection trip through the county, on the theory that the statutory term of "actual traveling expenses" does not Include board. County attorney Johnson has expressed an opinion in which he dif- l fers with the board. The matter w. I be taken into court. The board has denied the petition of the citizens of school district No 4 (Wlnkelman) for the issuance of $60).v 4 percent bonds, with, the proceeds i.f which they intended to erect a schoo! house. The' statutes do not permit of a district having less than ?15fl,WX) cf assessed valuation to bond itself for school structure purposes.
