straight-forward statement made u
few duys ago by II. W. Uorlng, a

SCENERY BIG PART OF PLAY ,
Modern Theatrical Productions Evi
dently Depend a Great Deal on
the Stage Setting.
"The Keggar's Opera" Is now being
presented In New York with the com
pany that was gathered for the Lon
don revival, nnd settings which ul"o
crossed the ocean. It was not that It
wns cheaper to bring the scenery
over, but simply because It would
have been Impossible to duplicate the
original sets without doing a great
deal of eighteenth century research
work that would mean going over the
name ground that had been carefully
covered by the London designer.
The situation is hardly a parallel
to that of "Her Own Way," tho Clyde
Pitch comedy which could not ho
played for several days after the date
set for the London opening because
the scenery had been put on n steam
er other than -that taken by tho com
pany. Pitch had written this play
with Intricate though unobtrusive scen
ic effects constantly In thought. Tbo
result was that, broadly speaking, the
special scenery for this play actually
did some of the acting.
Fire escapes were used in Paris as
long ago as 1701.

OF ANIMAL LOSS
Three-Fourths of Ailments Which
Ruin Valuable Herds Can
STRICT SANITATION NEEDED
Contagious Maladies, Sporadic AIL
merits, Parasitic Troubles, Accl
dents and Neglect Are All
(Prepared tiy the United States Depart
ment ot Agriculture.)
Every jour the people of the United
Slntcs lose over $U00,(HH),0X) directly
(nnd no one Knows how much Indl
teetly) through diseases of farm ani
mals. This Is a hi rye loll when dl
titled on a per capita basis, and when
It comes home to the farm stock-mis-er
who finds a valuable unlmal dead In
the ham, or an epidemic spreading In
to his herd, the loss Is sometimes disas
trous. The most iettet table feature
of the case Is that probulily three
fourths of the loss could he prevented.
Five Causes of Disease.
There are llvn principal cuincs of
disease and death of farm animals
contagious diseases, sporadic dlseirse,
paruhitlc troubles, accidents and ne- (
loot. Contagious diseases can be
avoided, or at least their consequences
Kreutly diminished. If farmers will
learn to co-operate with the United
States Department of Agriculture on'1
the urlous statu livestock and sani
tary authorities, who are striving to
maintain animal health. Fanners
should report promptly to the nearest
olllclals any suspicion of the presence
of contagious disease, and they should
observe carefully all regulations In re
gard to quarantine, sanitation, nnd
care of animals, as protection against
Tuberculosis Is onp of the worst
scourges among animals ant. It thrives
best In damp, dark, lll-ventllated sta
bles. It Is less common among ani
mals running at large. Llgl'it, dry,
well-vent Hated stables and dry, clean
barnyards or paddocks lire essential to
the health of farm animals. One val
uable point In combating contnglous
diseases, especially tuberculosis, Is to
start the herd with anlmnls thnt not
only are free from disease, but are of
stork thnt Is not predisposed to dis
ease. Ofllclul tests of herds are made
on request nnd through co-operation of
the United Stntes Department of Agri
culture with livestock sanltnry offl
clnls. Purchase of breeding stock
from these herds Is a wise precaution.
Care also should be taken to obtain
stock adapted to climatic nnd local
conditions. The other sources of ani
mal loss nre largely a matter of In
telligent and careful hnndllug.
Sporadic nnd Incidental diseases,
such ns disorders of the digestive nnd
respiratory tracts, can bo nvolded
largely by proper handling nnd feed
ing. A proper bnlnnclng of rations has
n mntcrlu Influence on the health of
live stock. Too much of any food ele
ment Is likely to result In digestive
disorders, thus predisposing the nnl
mal to disease.
Parasitic diseases nlso carry off
largo numbers of valuable animals
every year. They are lurgely tho re
sult of Improper housing nnd neglect.
The average farmer enn not be ex
pected to have the time nnd aptitude
for study which will keep him apace
with the latebt developments In feeds
and fccdii;, animal nutrition and
medicines, hygiene, nnd other import
ant mnttcrs related to the stock-raising
industry. Ho can, however, nvnll
himself of the benefit of the studies
nnd demonstrations of specialists who
hnve devoted their entire tlmo to these
subjects. Every stnto agricultural col
lege maintains a corps of specialists
whose publications and services arc
Department Offers Aid.
Tho department of ngrlculturo Is
constantly giving out Important In
formation In books nnd bulletins which

Is well to consult a local veterinarian
In case of any disturbing symptoms
nnd to report to tho state veterinarian
or tho United States Department of
Agriculture, any symptoms which In
dicate the possibility of an epidemic.

FOR USE IN GARDEN

Organic Rubbish, Decayed Vegetable,

Plot Necessarily Varies.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
(tiirden wnste, decayed vegetables,
dead vines, weeds, nnd tho organic
rubbish that collects about the place
during n busy summer may be cleaned
up nnd put to work again through tho
ngeney of n compost heap. Start the
heap by lnylng down n bed of stable
manure which has not been burned
or heated. The size of the plot will
vary with the amount of refuse to bo
used; for ordinary uses, If the bed In
made 8 feet long by 0 feet wide nnd
2 feet deep It will serve the purpose.
Out the manure spread a two-foot
layer of refuse and cover It with an
other layer of manure. This last Inyer
need be only a foot In thickness. He-

whole with n layer of earth.
If It Ir desired to odd to the henp
from time to time tho top layer muy
be opened - nnd the new ranterlnl
emptied Into the hole thus made. This
Is convenient for the suburban homo
where there Is no animal to consume
the kitchen waste. In the spring tho
heap Is weljl mixed with n fork and
the compost Is rendy to be spread on
the garden plot. Tho heating manure
will effectively destroy any weed seed
present and will nlso break down the
structure of most of the materials
that have been thrown upon tho pile.
The process mny be continued Indefi
nitely by simply adding enough
manure to Insure heating. Compost is
especially valuable for use In hotbeds
CLEANING UP INSECT PESTS
Many of Hibernating Species May B
Destroyed In Winter By Clean
ing Up Obscure Corners.
Much can be done now to reduce the
possibility of Insect plngues next
summer if n little effort Is directed to
wurd the destruction of Insect shelter
nrens. Around the grounds and gar
dens, under bulges, beside ditches, and
In fence corners nre bunches of Insect
sheltering weeds or grass. By the
time cold wenther approaches many
kinds of Insects In the adult or Imma
ture stages have taken full advantage
of these nooks nnd hidden nwny there
for the winter. The bureau of cnto
ihology, United States Department of
Agriculture, says thnt If these spots
are cleaned up nnd the refuse cufnnd
burned, many of these hibernating In
sects will bo destroyed nnd the dam
age from such posts during the com
ing season will be materially lessened.
