What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

(Prepared by the United States Depart- ment of Agriculture.) Progressive stock raisers are fight- ing a , winning battle with the blood- sucking cattle fever Mks In Okla- homa. Through their effective co-op- eration with the United States depart- ment of agriculture and the live stock sanitary bound of Oklahoma in dip- ping cattle, it is expected that 22 coun- ties will be released from quarantine December 1, 1918. During May there were 987 dipping vats availuble and there were 889,144 dippIngs of cattle. During June 995 dipping vats were mailable and there were 841,263 dip - pings of cattle. The Oklahoma _state council of defense firmly indorses the cattle tick campaign as a food con - Dipping Cattle to Control Tick. servation measure and in this it has the support of the governor of the state. Food Conservation Measure. In a statement just issued by the Oklahoma state council of defense this body goes on record as regarding the eradication of cattle tick, which conveys a disease which kills thou- sands of beef -producing animals and makes scrubs of all in a quarantine area, a most important food conserva- tion measure. At a meeting of the council a resolution was passed greet- ing county councils to indorse the action of the state and federal agents in every way possible. It is hoped, the statement says, that no misguided citi- zen, for reasons which may appear to him of personal importance, will In any way lend himself to the creation of any opposition to this ituportant FOULBROOD IS CAUSE OF BIG BEE LOSSES Symptoms and Measures for Control of European Variety. When Strong Colonies Headed by Via. • orous Queens of Resistant Stock Are Present Malady Makes Little if Any Trouble. • (Prepared by the -United States Depart- ment of Agriculture.) European foulbrood-a disease of the,.hrood of bees which has caused great losses to American beekeepers - Is often confused with American foul - brood, though it Is a distinct disease and requires different methods of treatment. That beekeepers may be - come familiar with the symptoms and measures for control of European foul - brood, the United States department of agriculture has just published fermers' bulletin 975, \The Control of European Foulbrood.\ When strong colonies headed by vigorous queens of resistant stock are present, this malady will usually make little, if any, htad- mil, according to the bulletin. If the disease appears because of an absence of some of these- precautions certain remedial • measures described in the bulletin, should be put Into practice. Symptoms of, European fouibrood ore variable, color being perhaps the food conservation measure 'which will also contribute very materially to the prosperity of the! state. Benefit of Eradication. The benefit to be derived front erad- icating the tick is shown by the Im- proved conditions after quarantine has been lifted. Restrictions on shipments of cattle have been removed, the loss from tick 'fever has been eliminated, more cattle are being raised, and a better grade of breeding stock is be- ing Introduced. Calves grow faster, cattle put on flesh more - rapidly dur- ing the grazing season and go into the winter in better eondltion because of the absence of the ilek. Dairy cows give a greater yield of milk, and the values of farm land are entinneed. In appearance the cattle show a marked contrast since the tick has been erad- icated. Pure-bred cattle have been brought in from other sections to hie prove the native breed without any loss from fever. The Southern ani- mals can enter the show ring of the North without restrictions. • Result in Mississippi. In Mississippi, the first Southern state to have all Its territory removed from quarantine, which opened a wedge to the gulf, the state-wide eradi- cation law, passed in 1916, is legard- ed by many as one of the most pro- gressive! pieces of legislation enacted In the state for ninny years. The Mis- sissippi commissioner of agriculture says that if the necessity for such a law had been realized four years prior to its passage, Mississippi would no doubt be the greatest cattle -producing state in the Union at the present time. The people who were responsible for getting this law on the statute books foresaw the possibilities for the per- manent development of Mississippi's resources and turning into profit the abundance of pasture grass which had annually gone to waste or was eaten by unthrifty cattle to make blood to feed ticks. Work In Louisiana. Louisiana passuiti a state-wide tlek eradication law In 1917, and at the time it was under consideration plant- ers, cattlemen and others throughout the state hastily sent to their various lawmakers a flood - of telegrams urg- ing them to support the measure. This state-wide law did not become effec- tive until the first of last April. Rec- ords show that during March 250,000 clippings were made under state or federal supervision, while in April the figures leaped to 1,700,000 and in- creased to over 2,000,000 during each of the following two months. Louis- iana demonstrated that a state cannot afford to wait on a few uninformed stockmen who are opposed to dipping cattle and who have failed to advise themselves of the benefits to be de- rived from complete eradication. The entire South Is looking forward with confidence to an era of great prosperity In the cattle Industry as the net gradually closes around the last cattle tick, most constant symptom. The earliest indications of the disease are a slight yellow or gray discoloration, and the uneasy movetnent of the larva in the cell. As the decay of the infecteatcells proceeds the color changes to a decided yellow or gray. A symptom of the greatest Importance Is the fact that the disease attacks drone and queen larvae nearly as quickly as those of the workers. The disease Is very in- fectious at times, but It weakens rather than kills the colordee. If the colony is strong It can usually with- stand an attack of European foul - brood, and will clean up the diseased cells. But where the disease Is per- libtIent, and the bees are not able to Ward it off, the beekeeper should re- move the ,qtimn and strengthen the colony by combining the bees from . two hives, and after ail trace of disease hits disappeared give the colony a young vigorous Halton queen of re- sistant stock. A queen whose colony becomes badly Infected Is rarely of any value and should be killed. Further details for the preventioti and eradica- tion of European foulbrtibel are eon - tallied In. the bulletin referred to. a copy of which can be obtained so long as the supply lasts by applying to the United States department of agricul ture, Washington.

New hogs brought to the farm should be isolated or quarantined for several days before they are permitted to run with the herd. . Hogs, and especially young pigs, often suffer much from lice. When numerous. lice are a serious drain on vitnlity, fattening is prevented by them, and hogs so affected are very much more subject to disease. To eradicate lice, dlp, spray, or rub hogs with crude oil, crude -oil N1111181011, or kerosene-oll emulsion every ten days for three or four applications. A very troublesome affection with hogs. IR caused by a mite or parasite that pricks the skin of the hog to get tissue fluid. injury produces a red spot which finally remelts in a settle under which flutes mey be found. The symptoms are itching followed by a loss of hair and thickening and cracking of the skin. Treat mange by applying lime sulphur or nicotine dip once every ten days for three clip- pings. Hogs should be washed thor- oughly with soap, water, and brush before dipping, to remove the scales. It Is Necessary to Have Number of Pigs on Hand to Consume All of Perishable Feeds. (Prepared by the United States Depart- ment of Agriculture.) Under ordinary conditions hogs return the largest profit when raised to utilize waste products, and when kept for this purpose alone the number will depend upon the quantity of waste products to he consumed. Skim milk from dairy herds; shattered grain from greln fields; unmarketable prod- ucts from the truck farm; undigested grain In the droppings of fattening steers, and many other minor wastes on the average farm are examples of foodstuffs which would be wasted were It not for their utilization by the thrifty farmer for the productIon of pork. In order to utilize some of these products, It Is necessary to have a number of pigs on hand for a relative- ly short time, on ttecount of the per- ishable nature of these feeds. The rest of the year the fattening pigs mid the breeding stock must be maintained upon feed raised expressly for their consumption, and while they are not kept at a loss during title time, 8til1 the greatest profit is derived when they %re eating their cheap feed in the form of waste products, rind the num- ber of hogs which can utilize the waste to the hest advantae should be the limiting factor In determining the umber of hogs to the term. On forms in the corn hell where hogs are raised simply to market the corn crop on the hoof, the number is eontrolled by the smount of corn which can profitably ie. raised to fatten them.

Where you can buy good farm land at $15 to $30 per acre- - get $2 a bushel for wheat and raise 20 to 45 bushels to the acre you are bound to make money --that's what you can do in Western Canada. In the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan or p. Athena you can get a HOMESTEAD OF 160 ACRES FREE and other land at very low prices. During many years Canadian wheat fields have averaged 20 bushels to the acre -many yields as high as 45 bushels to the acre, Wonderful crops also of Oats, Barley, and Flax.
