MAKE A DEPOCrr WITH US ArtpU?VlLL G2T J.1 Handling Ditealed Swine. Since hoe cholera has again be come prevalent' in Bates and Cass counties, many: fanners are' ask ing the question "Jttow are we going to be able to raise hogs the coming year without losing them from hog cholera! This que tionshould interest every farmer in the state. ' - - - In order to get rid of hog chol era it -will be necessary to prac tice good methods of sanitation. Hog chqlera should be handled with more care than is usually given it. as it -is very -contagions and iniectious. This enables it to be transferred to different farms through different channels For example, men will carry chol era on their shoes after tramping in lots where cholera exists. Pig eons and other birds feeding m the feed lots with cholera will carry germs to every farm in the community where they feed. The germs are often carried in the water from one farm to another. especially is this true where sick hogs are permitted to run on fields where the wash goes direct ly into the adjoining hog lots of other farms. The most danger ous ways of spreading cholera is bv allowing dead Iioks to lie around on the farm and sick hogs to run over the fields. Buzzards, dogs and crows will feed upon such carcasses and spread the dis ease over a large territory. It is a bad practice to leave any other carcasses lying out on the farm or to allow the hogs to eat these, as buzzards, crows or dogs are apt to feed upon them that have pre viously fed on cholera hogs and in this way expose your hogs to cholera. Since there seems to be some confusion as to the law on handling dead hogs, I will insert herein a copy of the law that was enacted at, the 47th General As sembly, 1913, pages 222-224. Section 1 Swino dying ot con tagious diseases to be burned, warning to be given (being an amendment of section 4868 of ar ticle 8, chapter 36, -K. S. 1908.) The owners of swine that die of any disease shall dispose of the careasses within twenty-four hours after they die by completer ly burning upon the premises where they have died, unless the state veterinarian or his deputies shall specifically prescribe some other manner in which the car- nnsa iimv hn disnosed of. It shall oe tne auiy oi me ww v swine that may be sick from any fatal disease to give danger warn ing by placing yellow, danger flairs in size at least iuxjz at an gates or openings into his prem ises. Section 2. State Veterinarian, Duty of Upon failure ot any nerson.to comply with the re- quiremenfs of this section it shall be the duty of any one navuif? the knwledge of the same to re port the facts to the State Vet erinarian or his deputy, wnose duty it, shall be at once to inves tigate the case and it he finds tne law being violated he shall at once arrest the., ottender ana prosecute the same in any court, having jurisdiction over such mis demeanors. Handling Diseased Swine, Sec tion 1. Prohibiting the driving of diseased swine on public high ways, (heing an amendment ot article 8 of chapter 36, - R. S. 1909, by adding a new section to be known as section 4868a). X person shall drive on foot any diseased swine, known to have any contagious or infectious dis ease, or disease commonly called 7 li". cholera, upon or along any punm; hiehwav. or other public grounds or upon any private land of any individual or corporation except the land owned or controlled by the " individual or corporation driving the swine. Provided noth ing in this section shall prevent any person from hauling in wag-, on or other vehicle any diseased swine, known or suspected of having anycontagious or infec tious disease, or disease common ly called hog chqlera, or to unload said diseased swine at or in stock yards of any individual or cor poration, commonly used by the public for 'shipment. ,, Section 4867, ' Penalty Any person who shall violate any of the' provisions of the four next preceding sections . shall be ad judged guilty of a imsdeamor and shall upon conviction thereof he fined not less than ten nor more than fifty dollars. It can W seen very readily that one is not excusable for burying host which might die from some otlr eaose. Tnere is a tendency nc&9 farmers to believe some- else other .; than cholera -l ir tins: Cholera is the t ,2i-sse that kills hogs Uf i abers in this eountry, ii h pciUe to lose a hog other rriz? oom some cause than cholera, yet any hog suspected of being sick should be isol ated immediately from the balance of the herd and confined to a quarantine pen until it has, entirely recovered or died. 1 ins pen: should be enclosed so as to keep out all other animals on the farm. The floor of the pen should be-eovered-wiUtJfresh air slacked lime. ' Several of the lumbermen of Bates and Cass counties are sell ing lime to the fanners for dis infecting purposes. Every farm er should secure several barrels of the lime as it is very efficient for disinfecting1 purposes. ' The litter alnrat the lots and sheds should all be cleaned down to a hard surface. The lime can be slacked readily by pouring it out in a pile and adding water slowly till the lumps become pon dered. The ground: 'to be disin fected should be lightly covered with the fresh slacked lime. It is better to clean up the premises and get rid of the chol era than to vaccinate- every few .months. M. I.

The semi-centennial, or fiftieth anniversary, of the first railroad train to be run between St. Louis and Kansas City falls on Satur day, October 2. It was the first riiui'oaa tram to eim-r naunaa City from any point. It was run over the tracks of the Missouri Pacific railroad, which in those days was known as the Pacific railroad -of Missouri.

Previous to that time to travel be tween St. Louis and Kansas City it was necessary to take three dif ferent linos of railroad and one steamboat, or two steamboats and two lines of railroad. When the Missouri Pacific be gan operating through to Kansas City the trip reinired eighteen hours. It took the fast mail train 16 hours aud 20 iniuutes to make the run now made in 7 hours and 10 minutes. Passenger fares were high. The fare between Kansas City and St. Iouis was $14.50, while at present it is $.".50. The fare from Kansas. City to Chicago was $24.50; to Cincinnati, $29.00; to New York. $48.00, and to Bos ton, $52.00. The rates to inter mediate poiuts were in propor tion.. Britain Reports 60 Submarines Captured.
