Our Increased export trade In cattle and anlimil products Is another cause of con gratulation ho traces to the ciiergctlo and effective measures adopted for the oradlcatibn of plcuto-pneumonla and to the growing ap- pi cclntlon at homo and abroad of the depart ment's ability to suppress or oHectunlly con- tiol contagious animal dsonscHe ( declares that not a single case of contagious plciuo- pncutnonla has been alleged to exist among American cattle shipped to British polls since March last.
