Fifty Thousand Dollars Saved.
More than $50,000 was saved for
Spink county in one year through the
work of its county agent in hog chol
era work alone. A report from the
agent. Spink county veterinarians and
farmers, which is filed with director
of extension, Gordon W. Ranrlett, at
State college, shows the hog cholera
results as follows r'.:
Total number hogs vaccin
Cost of vaccinating same $ 5,918.11
Total loss in vaccinated
herds (001 hogs at $7.74).. 6,973.74
Estimated loss in all unvac-
cinated herds (901 hogs
at $7.74) 6,973.74
Total loss in 1913 74,404.00
Total loss in 1914 from
deaths and cost of vaccina
Difference in favor of vaccin
Reports for 1915 are not yet avail
able. but it is safe to assert that not
as much vaccination has been neces
sary. and decidedly fewer hogs havo
been lost than during the year 1914."
Of the hog cholera efforts in Spink
county Director Randlett's report
says: "In the summer of 1913, in spite
of the fact that nine veterinarians
practiced in the county and hog chol
era serum was used quite extensively,
the report of the stale- live stock sani
tary board .shows that out of 40,466
hogs owned in the county 9,607 died
from cholera. This loss was estimated
at $74,404. Even t.he farmers who
had their hogs vaccinated were skepti
cal and nine-tenths of them were ab
solutely openly opposed to the vaccin
ation method. The following year
County Agent Hall appeared upon the
scene. He prepared articles for the
county newspapers dealing with the
nature of the disease and its preven
tion by sanitary measures. He next
visited and obtained the co-operation
of the nine veterinarians and four oth
ers licensed to treat hogs for cholera.
Each was asked to keep a definite rec
ord of all vaccinations. A hog cholera
school was next held at the county
seat by Dr. C. C. Lipp, State college
•elerinarian. Bulletins were obtained
from the United States department
and also from the state experiment
station and wisely distributed through
out the county."
Band Begins Work.
The Fourth Regiment, band of Wa
tertown, which gained fame by win
ning first prizes at the national meet
ing of the Elks at Los Angeles and
later at the national meeting of the
Moose at San Diego in July, 1915, is
beginning its "season's work earlier
than ever. The first rehearsal was
held in the Elks hall last week most
of the band men have been in con
stant. practice during the winter in
orchestra and other work. Director
Will Peck states that his band will be
even superior to that of 1915, which
made the trans-continental trip. At
least one trip embracing a trip across
the continent is on the program for
1916, in addition to several minor en
gagements. The boys are anxious tc
sustain their present enviable reputa
tion which has been built up only
through many years of hard, persistent
work and in this they have the lieartj
support of the state.

SALTS IF BACKACHY OR
KIDNEYS TROUBLE YOU
Eat Less Meat If Your Kidneys Aren't
Acting Right or If Back Hurts or
Bladder Bothers You.
When you wake up with backache
and dull misery in the kidney region
it generally means you have been eat
ing too much meat, says a well-known
authority. Meat forms uric acid which
overworks the kidneys in their effort
to filter it from the blood and they be
come sort of paralyzed and loggy.
When your kidneys get Bluggish and
clog you must relieve them like you
relieve your bowels removing all the
body's urinous waste, elBe you have
backache, sick headache, dizzy spells
your stomach sours, tongue is coated,
and when the weather is bad you have
rheumatic twinges. The urine i3
cloudy, full of sediment, channels oft
en get sore, water scalds and you are
obliged to seek relief two or three
timeB during the night.
Either consult a good, reliable physi
cian at once or get from your pharma
cist about four ounces of Jad Salts
take a tablespoonful in a glass ot
water before breakfast for a few days
and your kidneys will then act line.
This famous salts is made from the
acid of grapes and lemon juice, com
bined with litliia, anil has been used
for generations to clean and stimulate
sluggish kidneys, also to neutralize
acids ia the urine so it no lunger irri
tates, thus ending bladder weakness.

The Wheat Yields
Tells the Story
of Western Canada's Rapid Progress
The heavy crops in Western Canada have caused
new records to be made in the handling of grains
by railroads. For, while the movement ofthese
heavy shipments has been wonderfully rapid, the
resources of the different roads, despite enlarged
equipments and increased facilities, have been
strained as never before, and previous records
have thus been broken in all directions.
The largest Canadian wheat shipments through New York ever known
are reported for the period up to October 15th, upwards of lour and
quarter milllea bushels betas exported la less than six weeks(
and this was but the overflow of shipments to Montreal, through which
point shipments were much larger than to New York.
Yields as high as 60 bushels of wheat per acre are reported from all
parts of the country while yields of 45 bushels per acre are common.
Thousands of American fanners have taken part in this wonderful pro*
duction. Land prices are still low and free homestead lands are easily secured
in good fociHtiao. convenient to churches, schools, markets, railways, etc.
