Kenyon Would Keep
Feeder Stock Out of
Yards in Chicago
FORT DO DOE, la., May 2L-(Bpecial.)
No definite cause has been found for
the recent epidemic of foot and mouth
disease In cattle, according to Senator
W.-8. Kenyon, who returned home today
from Chicago, where he and Senator
'Gore conducted examination. He said
the senate committee did not deride
whether the germa came lit on South
American hidee or whether . they may
have been carried oil tha colthlng of stocK
men from that eontlnent.
Senator Kenyon declared the committee
probably will make some recommenda
tions to congress. He declared the stock
yards In Chicago to be a clearing house
for diseases of animals. He suggested
that some 'way be found to get "feeders".

shipping them through the Chicago stock

ia the place where the epidemic un
doubtedly began. The committee did not
get any totals of the amount of money
lost by stock raisers from the disease.
Senator Kenyon said that while some
complaint was heard of the way In which
the Agricultural department handled the
situation, that he thought the federal
government handled It well, considering
that the disease made its appearance In
the last few months for the first time In
thla country. But one case of tho disease
has been reported in a month, he said,
and this Indicates that the foot and
mouth disease has been stamped out.

country to Italy In the last few weeks
have been extensive, it Is said. Many
ship loads of horses for use in the Ital
ian army were reported to have been
made, and an order for 50 000 more horses
is understood to be awaiting acceptance
Many of the Italian reservists In this
city returned to Italy in the early stacoa
of the European war and a rush by
New York Italians to return and enlist
for the war Is not anticipated among

Finding "The One Person
in a Whole Cityfull!
ONE person will buy your property; ONE person will rent
your house or apartment; ONE person will give you employment.
How long would it require to find that "one person" without
help? Could it be accomplished at all?
The classified advertisements in The Bee help you to find the
ONE PERSON you seek because that one person, in most in
stances, expects to get in touch with you through the classified
advertising columns of The Bee. Self-interest makes your classi
fied advertisement IMPORTANT to this one person.
Your "ad" will be read by the wrong people, of course by many
of them. But, with a little persistence on your part, it will come to
the notice, unfailingly, of the one person to whom and for whom it
That's the SERVICE The Bee classified columns offer to you.
