TKD HEALY, „ Owner and Publisher Advertising rates furnished on application Subscription rates $2.50 per year SUCCESS comes from persistent endeavor, and the old saying of “he who laughs last, laughs best,” is a long established truth. One clearly realizes this fact when they travel over what was once termed the arid and desolate west, and view the vast areas of cultivated lands and com fortable homes, or when in the hills and mountains, come upon big mining communities, built where the prospector and faithful burro first struck the outcroppings revealing a glimpse of possible hidden stores of mineral wealth. In many instances his find only meant another load of anxi ety in securing funds for its development. It seems but a few years past that one of the popular jokes on the vaude ville stage concerned the efforts of some poor deluded fellow to bet the government a small amount, his filing fee, that he could hold on to 160 acres of barren land long enough to have it presented to him as a farm and home. To the credit of the newspapers it can be said that the wanderings of the prospector or settler were never consid ered a joke. To them the efforts of the trail blazers meant the onward march of progress. It meant new com munities, new cities and towns, and strengthening of the nation as a whole- The vaudeville joke has been shelved, and the pioneer farmers and miners can laugh and take sincere pride in the result of the fight which they have won. At the pioneers reunion, which takes place in Phoe nix, April 14th and 15th, the men and women and their children and children's children will gather to feast, dance the steps of yesteryear, and swap stories of the days when the state was young and their hardships contained enough of the spice of adventure to make living in those days now seem worth while. ACCORDING to the loudly expressed sentiments of some disgusted community republican leaders ex-Govern or Hunt is going to be surprised when he returns from his around the world trip and sounds his call for the gather ing of the faithful. As good diplomats, but unfaithful to his leadership, they have managed somehow to pull them selves into a republican job The grand old man may not like their explanation that it was to keep some good re publican out of the position, for he is touchy that way, as was proved when he fired all democrats who secured berths under the Tom Campbell administration. Taking favors from the opposition is bad medicine with G. W. P. If he should get in control again Phillips-Hunt democrat republicans will 1 e in the soup which will open a chance for jobless republicans. It may be that these democrats who have been herded into some republican jobs thought that the boss was coming back a republican. Who can tell, and how? WHAT is a bum steer? No, darling, it has nothing to do with horse meat or feathers. There are a number of explanations, but the expression can be nicely used when a real estate promoter works off a lot steam boosting a community and then buys all his supplies somewhere else, or a civic organization gathers in the shekels from its members and also buys supplies, stationery, printing, etc., out of town, or lets publishing contracts without submit ting bids. Such conduct is known as a bum steer. The public is deceived. The great trade-at-home movement gets a kick in the shins. There is no run for the money. Mockery reigns supreme. The wheels of progress skid and the machine stops. Giving the public a bum steer is poor practice.

Heavy losses have been experi enced by swine owners this win ter as a result of two diseases hav ing symptoms somewhat resembling , those of hog cholera. The cause in most cases investigated has been pneumonia, according to Dr. U. G. Houck, in charge of hog cholera control work In the bureau of ani mal Industry, United States Depart ment of Agriculture. The other dis ease is swine influenza, common ly known as “flu." Losses of swine from these diseases can be largely prevented by providing dry shelter for the animals to protect them from exposure to cold wind, rain, sleet and snow “Cases of pneumonia, so com mon in the fall and winter months,” Doctor Houck states, “usually fol low a period of mild weather when j the animals run out or are allowed to bed in the open. The first cold 1 rain or snow nearly always results In a number of sick animals, but this year the loss has been greater than usual, especialy In the central west ern states. In many cases the ani mals would not go into shelters un less they were driven, while others slept in damp bedding or drafty sheds. “When permanent hog houses are lacking, comfortable quarters can usually be provided at small cost by the use of the portable A-type houses or other shelter which will protect against drafts, undue damp ness and exposure. Even an open front shed having a tight roof and sides will often afford sufficient protection. The use of bedding also prevents sickness." It Is customary to regard the hog as a hardy animal needing a little or no protection from cold weather. As a result of this mistaken Idea, entire herds are often unduly ex posed and become affected with or “flu" with resulting heavy losses to the owners. Even a fat hog, government veterinarians point out, Is not so well able to re sist a sudden change to severe cold weather as are many other kinds of domestic animals. The thin cov ering of hair is not sufficient pro tection against exposure to cold weather, and the danger is In creased when the hog lies on wet ground. When an animal Is affected with pneumonia, the symptoms often re semble hog cholera except that the congested condition of the visible mucous membranes Is absent nnd there are no red spots on the skin. The trouble does not as a rule spread to the entire herd, and the postmortem examination reveals lesions confined principally to the lungs. Ilog “flu” Is characterized by the sudden prostration of a large num ber of the herd accompanied by loss of appetite and spasmodic breathing. When urged to move, the animals have violent fits of coughing. The eyes are swollen and there may be a discharge from the nose. When a herd shows symptoms of “flu" prompt measures should be taken to house and other w*e care for the animals in or der to prevent losses. “Y» lion any of the symptoms de scribed occur in a herd of swine that has already been Immunized agi nst cholera,” Doctor Houck adds, “one should suspect the pres ence of pneumonia, ‘flu,’ bronchitis, or similar disease, and take prompt measures to prevent losses."
