of a Cherry County Farmer.1' "Does

eral experience meeting of the cattie-
men of Cherry county.
M. L. AValscr was selected to intro
duce the subject of growing alfalfa in
Cherry county. This proved to be a
very interesting subject and elicited
much discussion both for and -.gainst
its success. It , however , resulted in
an expression favoring the culture of

Horticulture , " by C. A. Whitford :
"Experience it ) Tree Growing in Cherry
County , " by C. M. Van Meter , were
subjects that interested the audience.
The subject of "Sheep and Wool , "
by G. W. Ilervej" , was ably discussed
The poultry subject was fully dis
cussed by papers given by O. W.Morey
and J. A. Brewer , and poultry disease *
were then taken up by Dr. Peters.
This subject was pretty fully canvassed
from a practical standpoint. Several
other subjects Avere discussed in an in
formal way.
This is reported by the institute
people to be the most enthusiastic and
best attended institute held this year.
It is safe to say that the people of Val
entine and Cherry county are alive to
their business interests.

Dr. Peters on Blackleg.
Perhaps the most interesting meet
ing of the institute was that held Fri
day afternoon , when A. T. Peters spoke
on "blackleg. " ' Dr. Peters is an ac
knowledged authority on this subject
and his words \\ere listened to with
profound attention. He said that
blackleg is caused by a microbe which
lies dormant in grass , hay or the earth ,
until taken into the system of an ani
mal through the medium of a wound ,
when it immediately begins to propa
gate , at a wonderful rate. Only young
animals are attacked , and as the cells
of the animal tissue are not compact , a
gas is formed , and it is this gas which
causes the peculiar crackling or rustling
.sound heard when the hand is passed
over the body of the aninal. The
doctor call.s the gas intlatedportions of
the animal "tumors. ' ' and says that it
is possible to cure the animal if the
tumor is opened and disinfected in its
very early stages. The chances are
however one hundred to one that the
operation will not prove a success ,
hence the only thing to do is ado-it
preventive iiieasutes. Referring to tin-
habit of roweling with turpentine , blue
vitriol , Spanish Hies , etc. . he said that
this operation might protect the animal
temporarily , three months , possibly ,
but that it would prove successful no
longer. So long as the sore remained
and the animal did not gain in ilesh it
was all right. This and the practice of
nerving' ' merely lowered the vitality
of the animal and are very expensive
to the owner , both in first co. t and the
loss of flesh on the animal , lie strong
ly recommended vaccination , and
claimed that if the government or state
vaccine is used strictly accoiding to di
rections , it will prevent blackleg. Ev
ery failure of the vaccine could be
traced to its improper u.se. The vac
cine does not give the blackleg in a
mild form as is usually supposed
merely matures the cells of the animal
tissue , and thus prevents the formation
of the gas previously referred to Black
leg is a disease peculiar to immaturity I"
like measles scarle-
, whooping-cough , - (
Una and kindred diseases in the human i
family , aiid while it may be contracted
is seldom found in stuck more than
two and a half years old. The vaccine
is supplied free of cost by the state and
national governments , and the only
cost to the user is about $3.00 for sjr-
inge , etc. Vaccination should not be
done within two weeks of branding or
dehorning , either before or after. Dr.
Peters sa\s blackleg will affect a human
being , and said he knew at least three , '
deaths which resulted from imprudent !
post mortem examinations , and he is i
very positive that blackleg cannot occur
unless there is a wound on the animal.
It may be very slight , but there must
be a wound to allow the germs to enter
the system.

Protect the Birds.
Robert Good , editor of the Valentine
CEWS-DKMOCHAT , protests against th
asige of amendments to the game
laws of Nebraska that will permit
hunters to kill prahie chickens before
October 1. His arguments seem sound
and very much to the point. If the
open season does not begin until Or-
tober 1 the birds will be large enough
to make genuine sport , and at the
same time to be of use to the hunter
after they have been shot. Earlier in
the season the- are too small to protect
themselves by . flight 7 and the flesh is so
tender that it cannot be taken long dis
tances in the heat of August and Sep
tember without spoiling. Mr. Good's
communicat on deserves the close at
tention of the members of the legisla
It has the earnest indorsement of
Professor Lawrence Jiruner , who has
just issued a spr-cial university bulletin
calling attention to the .service done by
the birds in exterminating the insect
enemies of agriculture and horticulture ,
and calling upon the people of the state
to protect all kinds of birds with jeal
ous care. Professor Bruner in discuss
ing Mr. Good's letter with the Journal ,
says that he would go even farther than
is there suggested. The open season
ought to be at least as late as October
1. but if he had his way about it he
would feel like suspending the open j
season altogether. In his bulletin he j
makes the startling statement that the j
birds of Nebraska require 1$7. > .000,000
insects for each , da\'s rations. This
means that the birds of this state dis
pose of l.3,6 o bushels of insects in a
single day. or more than a million
bushels during the six months of warm
weather. Even the unthinking ought
to uuderstaa t what this means to Xe-
braska farming and fruit growing
Professor L runer insists that the mat- j
ler is of supreme importance , and that
if we are negligent in the matter of
protecting the birds wv will be made to
sailer in a "way that will remind us of

Got Whipped Twice in One Day
Tuesday morning' Fred Folks and i
John Thompson became involved in an j
iltercation about the ownership of a
loy. and John's father , "Ilackberry , "
took a hand in the row. The result
ivas a general mixup.in which "Hack-
berry- " got decidedly the worst of it.
Many of the "boj's" sympathized
ivith him in a spiritual manner , and
; arly in the afternoon Marshal Layj j
Port started in to quell the racket
the spirits were making in the Oul
Saloon. "Hackberry" didn't quell
ivortli a cent , and soon he and the
marshal were busily engaged hurling'
epithets at each other's heads. Tir
ing of this pleasant pastime their
fighting' blood got uppermost , and
