Hog Cholera Coming Again
Dr Weaver of the college vet

S. Hog Cholera specialist advises
everyone in communities where
cholera was prevalent last year,
to vaccinate shortly after wean

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
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.

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
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°
