r y h SATURDAY, JUNE 28, 1919 THE MOHAVE COUNTY MINER AND OUR MINERAL WEALTH. PAGE FIVS Cnif 1ST BUESTED FOR TUBERCULOSIS BEING SNIPPED OUT OF STATE Beginning July 1, 1919, the ship ment of cattle nterstate -without having them properly tested will be prohibited with a few exceptions by a regulation issued by the Secre tary of Agriculture. The inforcement of this new regulation will, it is be lieved, be of great assistance in pre venting the further spread of tuber culosis among live stock, and having the work practically vunder State and federal supervision at all times will serve to bring about uniformity. The Department of Agriculture, through its Bureau of. Animal Indus try, is now actively cooperating with the State live stock sanitary officials and cattle owners of 42 States in the eradication of tuberculosis from live stock. Recent legislation in several of the States has made it possible to proceed with the work where heretofore it has "been imposible to do so. Federal funds available for the work are in sufficient to moet present demands, and now- that the cattle owners are findintr the work to be of such ad vantage and importance the demands will increase rapidly. Most activities are in the "accredited-herd" work with the owners and breeders of pure-bred herds of cat tle who wish to free their herds from tuberculosis and have them placed on the list as "accredited." Full Cooperation Essential Some "area work" is being con ducted. Under this plan a community or county or some other unit decides to have all the cattle in the area tu berculin tested wjth a view of com pletely eradicating; the' disease as soon as possible. In order that the "area work" may be successfully carried on the fullest cooperation of the cattle owners in the territory must be ob tained, and any attempt to proceed with the work without the good will and hearty cooperating of the people will fail. Appropriations by1 the States for the coming fiscal year tor live siock tuberculosis eradication aggregate about $2,000,000. Part of this sum will be used to indemnify partially the owners of cattle found to be tubercu losis. Most of the States now have laws nermittinir the payment of in demnity and the i Federal department also pays some Indemnity wnen lunos are available. With the exception of valuable breeding animals, it is found most advisable to consign the tuber- culosis cattle for slaughter and there by dispose of them to the best ad vantage. In the greater portion of "re-actors" the disease is found to ex ist to but a slight extent, making the .meat fit for food thereby causing a great saving. The carcases of such cattle, after being passed for food by trained inspectors, usually bring about the market price, which sum, deduct ed from the appraised value of the live animal, leaves the amount of loss. Under the more recent laws, loss is divided between the owner, State, and the United States each standing one-third except that in most cases the State is limited in the amount that it can pay and the United States is always limited to the pay ment of $50 for a pure-bred animal and $25 for a grade. Healthv Cattle Worth More Owners realize that these slightly diseased cattle may at any time be come a source of danger to the healthy animals of the herd and that they themselves may break down from the disease and die or become of lit tle or no value. The value of healthy ,cattle in any herd, after the tubercu losis ones are taken out, always in creases, and it yj a Isource of great satisfaction to the owner that he has a healthy herd or that he is doing everything in his power to make it so. Cattle from accredited herds are commanding increased prices over thore that are not, and those from herds that are in the process of be ing accredited are also being sold at advanced prices. The second list of accredited herds and those that have successfully pass ed one tuberculin test in preparation be ready for distribution July 1. Re for the accredited list is expected to quests now received indicate that 100,000 copies will be required to meet demands.

Up to April 1, 1919, the total num ber of herds under supervision for the eradication of tuberculosis was about 9.800. containing amout 200,- 000 cattle; and since that time a large number have been added to the list. These cattle owners have realized tne great importance of trying to maintain a healthy herd, and have pledged themselves to cooperate with the State and Federal officials in every possible way to free their cattle from the disease. Experience covering a period of several years has proved beyond a doubt that a herd can be freed of tuberculosis and kept free, and that the procedure is entirely practical and within the power of a large percen tage of cattle owners. But to ac complish the desired results everyone connected with the project must do his best to follow plans, in every de tail, that will bring it about. The fullest cooperation on the part of the herd owner is very important. A herd of cattle may be declared to be free from tuberculosis by. the officials in charge of the work, and then, throurii some oversight or by care- lesness, diseased animals may be ad ded to the herd or members oi uie herd may beallowed to associate with tuberculous cattle. In such case, in fection may again be introduced and cause further losses and much trouble. iRince the inauguration of coperative tnhorculnsis eradication work the number of cattle tested with tubercu lin each month has increased. A to tal of 252,114 cattle were tested from Julv 1. 1918. to May 1, 1919. Minn esota leads among the Northern States with about 25,000. Virginia leads the Southern States with 15,796 followed closely by AlabaSna with 15,694. Mugging the Dutch Buy now, but Buy wisely. This is the slogan upon which the Informa tion and Education Service of the De partment of Labor, under the guid ance of Roger W. Babson, is con ducting a campaign to boost this country from a period of uncertainty into a period of prosperity. Mr. Babson says that the surest way to get the desired results is to tell the people what the trouble is and then to tell them how to remedy it. Briefly, our difficulties are ,due to the necessary readjustment of our war-tiime activities into peace-time industries. During the war the Gov ernment asked the people to refrain from buying anything they did not ac tually need. Every f dollar, every ounce of strength, was needed for war purposes; there was nothing to spare for the production of things which could be done without. Now the war has ended, and we find that our stocks .of peace-time goods are depleted. There is lack of almost everything that was not pro duced in quantity for the war. With the depletion of our supplies there has come since the signing of the ar mistice nervous relaxation and a feel ing of uncertainty and loss of confi dence throughout the country. Labor and capital are muddled. In dustry is marking time. 'The manu facturer has not been purchasing his raw materials except as he needs them from day to day. The merchant is operating with a skeleton stock upon his shelves. The public is refraining from purchasing except for its im mediate necessities. Everyone is waiting for everyone else. How can business be energized? How can confidence be restored throughout the country? How; can fabor be induced to get back its de tire to produce and capital to speed up. the remobilization of peace-time activities? Mr. Babson believes that the de sired results can be accomplished by administering the following stimu lants to the country. First, tell all progressive merchants and manufacturers tell all who have anything to sell to advertise now and take advantage of the great market which exists at this time. Second, tell the public that now is the time to buy that they, the people, in normal peace times are the con trollers of all production and all dis tribution. If the consumer buys the merchant tells and in turn is forced to buy. The manufacturer and the producer of raw materials are forced to buy and sell. Labor is put to work. The brakes put upon industry are thus re moved. The machinery of production and distribution is set in motion. To create the desired stimulus the public is being urged to buy, to buy wisely, but to buy now to-day what it wants. Now is the time when a few addi tional purchases added to the daily ne cessity purchases will increase the grand total of sales to such a magni tude that the merchant will be obliged to replenish his stock on a large bcale The wholesaler, the manufacturer, and the producer of raw materials will be obliged to increase their production. A demand will be created for all the goods which the workingman pro duces. There wall be a job for each jobless man. General confidence will be restored. Business will be boom ing. Reconstruction and remobiliza tion of our war activities into peace industries will go on quietly, energeti cally, healthily, unconsciously, Pros perity will come again a normal prosperity of peace with industries running at full time and the worker at his bench or his desk. Now is the psychological time lo begin this drive for prosperity. Let us take up the slack; let us do all that we can to allow the period of re construction to pass with the least possible hardships for labor and .cap ital. We, the people, must start'the ball a-rolhng must do what we can, buy what we can, help all we can. So BUY NOW, buy wisely, buy intelli gently, buy carefully, buy judiciously, tut buy to-day. Now is the psychological time. Let's go. This is the message of the Depart ment of Labor. Entire New Cast l. "I see Yorick Hamm played a re turn engagement in Plunkville last week." "Yep."
