GERMANS TAKE NO CHANCES
- WASHINGTON, Jan. 23.—As a re-
sult of ten years' experience In tick
eradication, the federal officials in
charge of the campaign are convinced'
that the hearty co-operation of the
people themselves is absolutely essen-
tial to success. The department of
agriculture's representatives in the
field, therefore, have been warned of
the danger of beginning systematic
work in any county before public
opinion Is ready to lend vigorous sup-
port to the enterprise. It frequently
happens that a few of the more pro-
gressive farmers are earnest advo-
cates of tick eradication, while the |
rest of the community may be either
indifferent or actually hostile. In a
number of instances in the past when
tick eradication has been begun un-
der, these circumstances it has been
found necessary, after two or three
years, for the federal government to
withdraw its men because the results
of their work were, to a great extent.
nullified by popular indifference. To
make a success of eradication, all cat-
tle in the county must be dipffed reg-
ularly. In practice, this Is only possi- E. C. Wedemeyer of Hillsboro was

Mcidlwr of Ford Peace Party Stripped

Soles of His Feet.
COLUMBIA. S. C., Jan. 23.—Lieut.
Gov. Andrew J. Bethea of South Car-
olina, who returned here today after
spending seven weeks as a member
of the Henry Ford peace expedition,
declared that Mr. Ford's efforts to-
ward ending the European war are
not finished and that "no one can
tell what may yet be accomplished."
Mr. Bethea would not discuss the j
future plans of the expedition.
Commenting on conditions in Hol-

he said prosperity in those countries
was general, although some interests

New York, Jan. 28.—The steamer

chored at quarantine.
Other arrivals were Dr. Frederick

secretary of the Mexican legation at
Christiania, and Michael Goldolsky,

ernment enroute to Washington for a

Old Man Murdered.
Dubuque, Iowa, Jan. 23.—Herman
Liinning, 70 years old, a recluse, who
lived near here, was found dying last
night with a piece of wood six inches
long and nearly one inch wide, driven
through his skull. He died shortly
after reaching a hospital. Robbery is
thought to have been the motive for
work that they will insist upon the
enforcement of the necessary regula-
Recent Instructions sent out from
Washington to the men in charge in
the Infested regions directed them to
procure a list of voters in any county
in which there were manifestations of
local interest in tick eradication. Cir-
cular letters and pamphlets explain-
ing the evil of tick and the possibili-
ty of its elimination are then to be
sent to this list.
The next step is to arrange for prac-
tical demonstrations of dipping. Since
the federal department has no funds ! Campbell
at its disposal for the purpose, the
construction of demonstration vats
must be undertaken either by the lo-
cal authorities or by one or more pub-
lic-spirited and progressive stock own-
ers. The cost of building a vat is
comparatively small, and it has been
found that these practical demonstra-
tions are by far the most effective !
method of convincing farmers that j
the tick can be eradicated without any
injury whatsoever to live stock. As
soon as the vats are built, a number of
demonstrations should be held in or-
der to give all the people of the coun-
ty an opportunity to see for them-
selves that dipping does no injury to
cattle. There is a widespread belief
among the less Informed stock own-
ers in the tit'k-infested regions that
the arserii^Tn the dipping: vals poisons
cattle and dries up milch cows. This
erroneous notion may be easily dis-
pelled if arrangements are made for
holding the dipped cattle on exhibi-
tion for a few days.
. After a series of such demonstra-
tions. meetings of farmers are held
and the benefits of tick eradication ex-
plained. Ordinarily, these meetings
lead to the organization of county live
stock associations, which have been
found very influential factors in pro-
moting eradication. It is customary
for these associations to apply to the
county board for the materials for the
vats and for the chemicals used in the
baths. Until satisfactory arrange-
ments have been made in this or some
similar way for the construction of
sufficient vats to accommodate all the
cattle in the county without driving
them long distances, the time Is not
ripe to undertake active eradication
work. In most instances the law re-
quires that before such work Is under-
taken the county should vote for It In
a special election. Even where no
election is actually required, the moral
effect of the expression of the peo-
ple's will Is greatly to be desired.
Systematic eradication work means
the dipping of all cattle in the county
every 14 days in a standard arsenical
solution. If this regulation is rigidly
enforced, one season should see the
elimination of the ticks and the free-
ing of the county from quarantine.

Every dipping, how? er, should be su- complish a greater amount of work
pervised by regularly appointed in-
spectors and the arsenical solution
should bo tested and made of stand-
ard strength each time that the vat
is used. Furthermore, care should
be taken to account for each cow in
the territory in which the vat is lo-
cated. A few neglected animals will
afford a refuge for the tick, and, in
time, undo all that has been accom-
plished by the dipping of the others.
The regulations necessarily Involve
some inconvenience to cattle owners.
As has already been said, therefore,
before active work is undertaken, it is
essential that publie sentiment be
brought to a point where the incon-
venience is cheerfully put up with. In
general, one to two years' preliminary
work is sufficient for t,his purpose.
The free use of demonstration vats will
do much toward Shortening the period
and increasing enthusiasm for the ac-
tive work that is to follow.
