llcovery of a Heruni 'Which Acta as
Protector And Preventive When I -jected
Into the Veins.
The losses of the American farmers
by bog cholera are something' enor
mous every year, and they will doubt
less be as '"tilied as Secretary Wil
son of the Department ol Agriculture
is at the (uccen-t of experiment re
cently pro-ecu i. d iokin to the dis
cover of a !-)ocilic for the d' t addi-.-e.e,
s.iys the Mia i.eupulis Tribune.
These experiments have been carried
on under his direction in Iowa and
Nebraska during- the last few months
and the aecretarj' thinks the discov
eries made will bo worth $1,000,000 a
year to the people of the United
States. The ofllcial reports of results
have not been published, but it ap
pears that a cure is effected by the
use of a serum, which t-erum also acts
as a protector and preventive when
injected into the veins of healthy ani
mals. In the expsrlments in Iowa it
is stated that 85 per cent of the sick
were cured, and that in no instance
has an animal contracted the disease,
when exposed to it, after being in
oculated. The serum is obtained in the same
manner as that used in diphtheria.
A horse or a cow is inoculated with
the erermsand when its blood is "ripe"
its veins are tapped and a few drops
of the blood injected under the epider
mis of the hogs. Curiously enough,
it i3 claimed, the cultivation of the
serum does not injure the horse or the
cow, and the animal can be used for
the purpose again and again. A sin
gle animal will produce 1,000 doses of
serum a year, and if economy is prac
ticed, the cost of the treatment can
be reduced to 10 to 20 cents per hog.
This is good news not only to the
farmers, but to the consumer. Pork,
or soine of the products f the hog,
forms tiie staple food of large maes
of our people, and it is used to a
greater or less extent by all classes.
It would doubtless be eaten with
greater freedom if all consumers could
be relieved of the dread of eating
diseased meat. Despite the claims
made by some hygienists that pork is
not a healthy diet, it is a fact that the
conquering races of the world are
those which use ir. liberally. One
writer says that the English won at
Waterloo because the allied forces
had been fed the mornine of the battle
on hog meat, while the Frencn break
fasted on a little vegetable soup. How
ever this mny be, pork-raising is one
of our most important industries and
the discovery of a specific for the dis
ease that renders its profits at limes so
uncertain, will be noihing less than a
A LAME ARGUMENT.
Mi. Bry..n'a "O servuioi;s on Mex
ico" a published in the New York
Her.ild. iif:r some quite trite find
eiemoniary recapitulations of Mexican
history undertakes to grapple wiin
the free silver coinage question as ex
emplified in Mexico. He begins that
discussion, say9 the State Journal,
with the old story about how profita
ble it is in Mexico to hire labor with
silver money and sell the products of
that labor to foreign countries for
Well, that is a big thing, but who
manes the mouej? The laborer who
gets his wages iu silver does not git
the goid oi the foreigner ai any time
and he is of course excluded from the
wonderful advantage of the exchange
It is eyident that the hated capitalist.
the bloody plutocrat of Mexico, the
corporations that exploit the cotton
and the coffee and the mines and all
the other things that are worked for
a foreign trade, by hiring cheap
labor and paying wages in cheap
money and selling the product for
good money, are the beneficiaries of
Mr. Bryan then states that real es
tate is rising and that wages are also
rising in Mexico,but of course the poor
man owns no real estate, that being
wholly in the hand of the capitalists
But he does not happen to think of the
utility of any information to his fol
lowers. He omits to give a figure or
bttU ao LU biiU naD3 Buau out? ie?au.
He gives some figures of the average
wages of the farm hands in South
Carolina, Georgia and other cheap
labor states in this country, bu.t when
we look farther down for a statement
of the average wages of the farm
hands and other laborers in Mexico,
we are surprised te find that they are
not in Mr. Bryan's observations. He
forgot at the last moment to finish the
comparison he was preparing for us.
So it will be seen that Mr Bryan's
observations are chiefly remarkable
for those that he either omitted to
"obr-erve" or forgot to record.

result the "Clairvoyant Gold Mining

stock of $1,000,000, for the purpose of
developing the claim.
