WAR AGAINST CATTLE TICKS
United Effort BsJnrj Made In Georgia
to Eradicate Little Blood
(Prepared by the United States Depart,
ment of Agriculture.)
Cattlo ticks are fighting a losing bat
tle ttt Georgia this year. The at
tempted Invasion Is being effectively
suppressed by the co-operntlvo efforts
of federal, state and county employees,
working with the stock raisers. Tho
famous battle cry, "They shall not

with the blood-sucking parasites to

tho most effective results In tick eradi
cation are obtained. During Mnrch
approximately half a million cattle
splashed through the dipping vats In
the stnte. The April reports show
that 833,434 cattle were dipped under
federal, state and county supervision.
This Is a very good record, Bay spe
cialists of tho United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, when it Is con
sidered that Georgia Is essentially a
cotton-growing sinto and thnt the cat
tle Industry has been neglected on
account of the hnndlcnps presented by
the presence of ticks.
Now nil cattle that have been

was considerably Increased during
In Georgia, ns In all other southern
states where the fight against cattle
ticks has been waged, there Is always
more or less opposition to the tlck
crndlcatlon movement. RccentJy n
meeting was held In one Georgia town
for the purpose of protesting against
the further dipping of cattle In the
county. A progressive farmer who had
experienced unsatisfactory results In
raising cattle under tick conditions
rend a notice of this meeting of pro
test nnd immediately wrote a letter
to the president of the bank In the
town In which tho meeting wns held.
In this letter he said:
"Noticing In the newspapers that
your people meet opposition In tick
eradication, I desire to express my
actual experience on this line. Before
the discovery thnt the cattle tick waS
the source of infection, the only cause
of bovine fever, I brought many regis
tered Jersey dairy cattle to Putnam
county, middle Georgln. Later I Im
munized tho northern cattle by trans
fusing blood from cows carrying ticks
to the susceptible northern-bred cattJe.
"While tho treated cattle did not sub
sequently die of cattle fever, the proc
ess proved linrmfiil to the growth nnd
development of the nnlmnl whose life
was saved. When the history of the
deadly tick became fully known, tick
eradication Justly took precedence over
nny treatment. Its ensc of accom
plishment, Its economy nnd bcncliclnl
results that followed all emphasized
Its necessity to nny community that
desires to raise cattle.
"In our part of the state no mnn, no
matter how unreasoning nnd bitter his
opposition to tick eradication when we
needed his moral support, can now bo
found who does not fully npprovo tho
work. No nrgument should carry more
weight than the full Indorsement and
approval of opponents when they see
the whole truth, and chnngo from op
position to advocacy.
"Surely we who have bred cattlo un
der tick Infcstntlon, und later after
tick eradication, nrc entitled ns mis
sionaries to endeavor to benefit others
who have never been without tho dis
advantage of tho pest."
REST COWS BEFORE CALVING
Erroneous to Believe That Animals
Cannot Be Dried Up for Neces
sary Rest .Period.
Dry off your good cows and give
them a rest of olght ta ten weeks be
fore culvlng. It will do them good.
Some cows hnvo a tendency to milk
nearly up to the date of freshening,
and It is often a belief that they cun
not bo dried off for a sufficient rest
period. Expert herdsmen, however,
find that no Injury results from dry
ing up a cow which gives as much as
flvo to eight quarto dally, If one milk
ing a day Is omitted for several days
and tho nnlmnl then partly milked out
utter skipping utt entire day.

Some More Truths
Are You Prepared?
A doctor In the house aU the time would be a good idea. Yet yo
can't afford to keep a doctor In the family to keep baby well-or pre
vent sickness. But you can do almost the same thing by having at
hand a bottle of Fletcher'o Castoria, because It is a wonderful" remedy
for indigestion,, colic, fevcrishness, fretfulness and aU the other dis
orders that result from common ailments that babies have.
Fletcher's Castoria is perfectly, safe to use. It is a harmless sub
stitute for Castor Oil, Paregoric, Drops and Soothing Syrupn. Childrea
cry for Fletcher's Castoria, and mothers recommend ifc because they
have found it a comfort to children and a mother's friend.
If you love your baby, you know how sweet it is to be able to
help baby when trouble comes. You cannot always call upon a doctor.
But doctors have nothing but good to say of Fletcher's Castoria, be
cause they know that It can only do good that it can't do any harm
and they wouldn't want you to use for baby a remedy that you would
use for yourself.
