The Horse Plague
Final Report ol Webster
From the reports of our correspond
ents throughout the countr, and our
own personal investigations, the mini
ber of deaths from the plague and Us
treatment total as follows:
The plague carried off 023. Some of
these were doubtless treated in various
ways, and ,we have not investigated
the nature of these treatments. Judg
ing, however, from the conclusions of
the state board of Kansas, it is likely
enough that half of these died from
the medicines given them. It is possi
ble that, had no treatment been given
other than simple laxative, change of
pasture and food, the loss might have
been les,s than three hundred nnd fifty.
This would not have been u serious af
fair lu addition to tho number that died
from the plague Itoelf, ti very large
uumber were mado ill hv tho vnceine
adminlstoied. Of tliou the repotted
deaths are, up to date, (11), iniiMiigthe
total deaths 1172. Hut this does not
state the whole of the calamity. It is,
perhaps, safe to say that one thousand
more have been in various stages of
danger from the vaccine lu their
terns. There is jrrouud far i hope
the Doisou'wht eventually work out'of
their blood: The fact that 'bdrses, as

and people In their homes leave their
heating stoves set up all summer
These stoves are made a receptacle

through the holes that have been eaten
by the rust, or if the pipe should hap
pen not to be defective, the blaze pass
es on up into the chimney which has
become defective through tho summer
by reason of the mortar becoming de
teriorated and falling out from be
tween the brtck, and tho building is
destroyed by reason of a defective flue,
or defective stovepipe, and that is the
reason why we have more defective
stove, stovepipe and flue flies during
the early fall than in any other month
