Hog Cholera Coming Again Dr Weaver of the college vet erinarian and Dr. Briggs the U. S. Hog Cholera specialist advises everyone in communities where cholera was prevalent last year, to vaccinate shortly after wean ing time. Also use the double treatment. They afeo state that best authorities agree, that hem morhagic septicimia, or swine plague rarely if ever exists ex cept as- a secondary infection. They do not advise using mixed vaccine but merely vaccinate with the hog cholera serum and virio. They emphasized the fact that 90 per cent of all hogs that die of disease die of hog cholera. Don't take chances if hogs start to die. Don't put too much faith either in so-called hog tonics and condi tion powders. We don't contin ually force all sorts of chemicals into our own stomachs. Why, then force them on the hogs. If we must feed something, put it in a self feeder. The hog usually knows what and how much is best for hint MRS.

Rural communities that may be inclined, and find it possible to organize classes to take the course will please report to O. Austin, Sisseton. Ladies on the farms should take advantage of the opportunity offered as well as the ladies in town. When the nurse arrives we may be able to work out some plan by which ladies on the farm will find that the course can be given without making it impos sible for them to take care xf their accustomed duties.

Dahl and family. No. 34 DOWN WITH THE REDS What is the world coming to. A short time ago we sent the Bui lord to some unannounced port in Europe loaded with "reds." The bands played, the "reds" swore, the newspapers ran big headlines and the world was sav ed. For a few nights the editor of this great family journal enjoy ed the sleep of the good and vir tuous. As a matter of fact we dis pensed with the usual tour of in spection each night before retir ng to tihe arms of Morpheus. Not once did we look, under the bed in frenzied expectation of finding a bomb there. We shovelled coal vv it ho tit a single quickening of the pulse when a piece of rock re vealed itself among the lumps of carbon. When we were tendered a cigar by a bewhiskered strang er a l'ew days ago we did not take the trouble to have it analyzed by a member of the secret serv ice. We passed it on to an old en emy and went our way smiling. No one can know the untrammel led bliss we enjoyed for a few days. \Ve don't know ourself. Yesterday we came face to face with the hideous truth. There are "reds" at work in this country. The good ship Bulford did not carry away as much as we had first thought. Our dream of bliss is a thing of the past. We have taken down the old squirrel gun and loaded it with buckshot and tacks. New locks have been installed at the house a burglar alarm on each door and window, and we are willing to entertain offers of any sort of a book that deals with the problems of these times. Why is it no one has writ ten a book on "How to Detect the Reds." Why is it that Milbank has no regiment of trainad sol diers to protect our lives and property and sugar supply? Why have we no machine guns on Main street? This country is virtually over run with "red" propagandists. While at the station the other day a work train thundered a long the tracks at a terrific speed. Imagine our horror when we noticed two red flags at the rear end of the caboose! We shouted our protest but the train went right through Milbank. W° had luncheon at the St. Hubert at noon and the tomatoes were RED! »vbbled at a morsel of food, ck at rtart and trembling In the lobby of the hotel a travel ing man unbuttoned his coat and his neck-tie was RED! Frantical ly we rushed to the postoffice and purchased a stamp intending to dispatch a letter to some home council of defense and the post master gave us a stamp that was RED. Think of it—printing a picture of George Washington in RED! Is there no limit to the in famies of these "red" agitators Where will it all end?
