t When a Business Man Needs Money He Can Turn to His Life Insurance Policy and Quickly Obtain Cash'. He has no feeling of obligation as when he barrows from a bank, and his life insurance company is ready and glad to be of service. 1 But- Don't mortgage your life insurance policy to buy an automo bile, or to buy anything else. Don't do it unless you know you will go broke without that cash. When you consider borrowing on yonr policy, remember, it isn't YOUR money you are taking. It is your little children mortgaging their bread and butter. It is your wife giving it by doing days' work for some other woman. Even if 'you do fail in business, your creditors cannot take your life insurance money from you or from your dear ones. That money is absolutely safe from every busmess wreck. And you cannot save money in any other way for your family, if your business goes on the rocks. . Think of this when you are in desperate need of cash. Mortgage your home, if you must but have a life insurance policy with which you are your family can pay off the mortgage. FRED B. PATTEN, Genl. Agt. of the German Mutual Life of St. Louis 3rd Natl.

URGES DAIRYMEN TO TEST THEIR CATTLE Official Explains to Milkmen Howto Get Serum for Examinations. Deputy State Veterinarian H. C. Tuck, of Columbia, Mo., arrived in this city Tuesday morning, where he came at the request of a number of local dairymen who desired to have their herds tested for tuberculosis, He took up his work soon after his arrival, and yesterday afternoon com pleted the task, having examined sev en herds in whieh-were a total of about 75 head of cattle. In announcing his report to the Tribune last evening, Dr. Tuck said: "I have tested the herds of Willis Martin, S. E. Collins, C. H. Haman, Aug. Haman, W. J. Hitt, R. M. Pick ens and B. D. Stevens, about 75 in all. "There was not the slightest sus pect in the entire bunch. They were all native cattle and we do not ex pect to find such trouble except in cat tle that have been brought in or na tive cattle that have been exposed to cattle that were shipped in. "When these tests are desired by dairymen, application should be made to the State veterinarian or to the secretary of the State Board of Agri culture at Columbia, Mo. We make all tests free of charge, and as near as ve can, we test for everybody making application. We try to economize on railroad fare and get them bunched as much as possible, and wait until .a number in the neighborhood desire the service. "We make the tests free of charge and if there are any diseased animals the State pays for them. "When we go to rnake the test we use the Intradermal Tuberculin Test and in giving the tests we are compell ed to make two trips. We make an injection into the skin of three or four drops of tuberculin- and then we go back in 48 to 72 hours to sec the re sult, and it was only this afternoon that 1 completed my second round. When an animal has tuberculosis there is a swelling in the skin at the point of injection. This is a new test and one that only a few of the States are using. Mis souri was the tirst to adopt it otti cially. .We have been using it since 1911. It is a rather complicated test but we like it better, because it is ac curate and much more easy to apply. "We also look out for any other dis eases, contagious, especially, which might be. dangerous to the animals of the herd or which might make the ani mal unfit to use for milking purposes. "We have tags furnished Ty the Missouri Board of Agriculture and we place the tags in the ear of every ani mal we test, and keep a record of it by the number on the tag, so that if any man sells an animal he can write to the office ami we can furnish him a health certificate from our record, or tell him who owned the cow at the time she was tested and give him some history as to where she came from. "Where th2 herd tests sound, we issue a health certificate giving the number of cows in his herd and the several tag numbers. "If we find diseased animals in the herd theyrc taken out and another test is made within 90 days to see that none of the other animals have con tracted the disease. "As soon as the condemned animals are killed the State pays for them. The price to be paid for the condemn ed ones is set by three appraisers ap pointed by the County Court, and the law allows them - to appraise grade animals at not more than $40 per head, and registered imre bred ani mals at not more than $200 periead. "In addition, we give the owner a shipping permit and allow him to ship these cattle to be sold for immediate slaughter, subject to government in spection. They are subjected then to a most rigid port mortem examination by the U. S. Meat Inspector, and if under their rules for meat inspection, the carcass is considered fit for food, it is stamped,, inspected and passed for use as food. But they are only passed for food in cases where the le sions are very slight, possibly one or two glands which do not render the carcass unfit for food and are considl ered harmless. "If the lesions are found to be such that the carcass is not fit for food, it is condemned and the owner is al lowed whatever the carcass is worth ALLIANCE TO HOLD BIG PICNIC SUNDAY I Many Politicians In Yite4 to Ad 'jlress German-Americans at Old Fair Grounds. Th-3 German-American Alliance yes terday decided to hold its big picnic next Sunday, June 20, at the Old Fair Grounds about two miles west of the city. Barbecued meat will be served to all who attend, and there wiil be many en tertainment features intended to please the crowd. Capt. H. JW. Bridges and Charles Hitt, who are members of the picnic committee, announced yesterday that all the aspirants for Governor on the Republican and Democratic pickets had been invited to attend the picnic and address the gatherings Two Gardners will be asked to at tend. CoL Fred D. Gardner, author of the State Land Bank Law, has been in-vited.- He is a Democrat while A. E. L. Gardner, of St. Louis County, is a Re publican aspirant. John T. Earker, John M. Adkinson, William Painter, John Gordon and Cornelius Roach are the other Democrats who are to run for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination naxt year. . Other Republicans who would like to succeed Gov. Major are Judge Henry Lamm an d John Kennish. Both of them will be asked to attend the picnic next Sunday. The Schuchert Concert band will pro bably be contracted for, Mr. Hitt stat ed. The Pocohontas band has offered its services gratis, and will be accept ed, Mr. Hitt said. It is his plan to have the Schuchert band also. "We are. going to make it one of the biggest events held in the county in years," said Mr. Hitt said. "We have received notices from many of the poli tical speakers that they will be pre sent. This picnic will not favor any of the candidates, but will offer all of them an opportunity to address us.' It is quite likely that sonte of them will discuss the European war, which will be interesting to our members and their guests." J. W. and Alien Baldridgc of New Madrid visited friends in this city yes terday. for fertilizer. In this way the loss to the owner is usually not very great, and iz much better than having an ani mal with tuberculosis in his herd. "These dairymen who have taken this step should be commended for their action, and it should serve to en courage others in doing the samo. "There is comparatively little tuber culosis among the cattle in this State, and of the 19..34 head examined last year there was condemned Iwfwlbout 3")0 head. "Thus far there has been more con demned this year in proportion to the number tested, and a few days ago ther j had already been condemned 279 head. "A short time ago Di D. F. Lucky, State Vterinarian, was requested by a physician in Webster Groves to make a dairy test. The doctor stated that he had eight cases of tuberculin children and that these children were using the milk 'from one dairy, and after per suading the dairyman to have the herd tested Dr. Lucky and I went down and tested the herd, and con demned 42 head out of 114. We fol lowed them up to post mortem and the ownr went along and saw them kill ed. All of them had tuberculosis and the State pid $1800 for his loss. That is the greatest number we have ever found in one herd. "The dairy products marketed in this city should be inspected, and if the pity does not wish to maintain the of fice of dairy inspector, the pure food and dairy commissioner, Mr. Frickc, of St. Louis, wil assist in looking aft er the sanitary conditions of the dairy, and our department will make the tu berculin test one time free of charge. " "Dr. Lucky's policy at the present time is to make " about two official tests everyvsix years, and then have the dairymen make tests at their own expense once or twice between our tests. We like to co-operate with local veterinarians and show them about the method of testing.but it is Dr. Lucky's policy for us to make the first rounds ourselves. "Dr., Lucky contemplates taking up chaUtauqua work during the summer, and plans coming here in the near fu ture to deliver his lecture, the subject of which is 'Three Years Among Tu berculosis Cattle and Men. The lec ture will be illustrated with -pictures showing the difference between vari ous healthy organs and those infected with tuberculosis. "I have completed my work here and expect to have tomorrow afternoon for Lebanon, where I have been re quested to examine a herd of sheep and make tests for scab. From Leb anon I wll go to Columbia." . Dr. Tuck is accompanied on his trip by his wife, who frequently toursHhe State with him on his official trips. jrf i.- rvi News From The County Seal Jackson.
