Stockmen of Northwest Say Zero
Cold Not Epidemic Cause of Trouble
Ellsworth, Neb., Nov. 28. (Special
Telegram.) The temporary embargo
placed by the St. Joseph and Kansas
City yards, as well as by the state of
Colorado, against Nebraska cattle be
cause of the apparent evidence of the
hoof-and-mouth disease has created
quite a furore among the cattlemen of
this section because they regard it un
fair to the immediate prospects of the
cattle industry. The snap-shot judg
ment that has called forth this em
bargo, according to the opinion of a
majority of stockmen in this vicinity,
was caused by the extraordinarily
early visit of extreme winter weather.
Only a small number of cattle were
placed on the winter range before the
weather, 16 and 18 degrees below
zero, arrived. The mid-winter condi
tion was accompanied by a heavy fall
of snow. The only thing visible to
the cattle was the frozen rock salt.
This they observed and relished
with an enthusiasm that can only be
known by a hungry human. The deep
covering of snow deprived hcm of
feed and the frosted salt afforded them
a relish without nutrition. The frost
in the salt deprived them jf their ton
gue's coating, as would a piece of
frosted steel to the tongue of a human.
Sore mouth resulted with a plentious
display of blood around each salt
heap, together with a free flow of
saliva. When the condition was dis
covered food was offered, but the
condition of the animals' mouths pre
vented eating, with the result that a
few were so weakened that death en
With proper attention the majority
survived, and a condition that shortly
after the severe weather of a fortnight
ago proved serious in contemplation
has entirely cleared in course of live
days, so that now there is scarcely a
remnant of a threatened epidemic.
Foot and mouth disease, experts de
clare, begins first" with the hoof. There
has been no ailment of the hoof in
this siege. That all the alarm has
i begun since the cold snap just prior
to the middle ot the month, which was
prevalent throughout the state, proves
to stockmen on the ground that its
origin was with the frozen salt. Had
the cattle jeen placed on winte range
the severe weather would not have
caused sufficient damage for passing

This Simple Laxative
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin
Relieved Her Baby When
Nothing Else Would
Little Max Pendergrast is now four
years old, and a fine healthy boy. When
but a tiny baby, in fact almost from
birth, he suffered a great deal from
constipation. His mother, Mrs. Carl
W. Pcndergrast, Red Key, Ind., heard
of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, ob
tained a bottle of it from the drug
store, and with it was able to quickly
correct this condition.
Mrs. Pendergrast says Dr. Cald
well's Syrup Pepsin has saved them
from calling the doctor many times,
and that she will never be without a
bottle of it in the house to use when
needed. She found it equally effective
as a laxative for herself and other
members of the family.
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup PepMn is a com
bination of simple 1bxrHv herb with pap
ain, ploHHRtit to the tanto, mild In action
and pnttttlve In effect. It does not gripe
or strain, and contains no opiate or narcotic
drug- It is (he ideal family laxative, mild
and pleasant for baby, yet acting quickly
on the ftlrnngexi constitution.

stitutes be sure to ask for Dr. Caldwell's
Syrup Pepsin. See that a facsimile of Dr.
Caldwell's signature and his portrait appear
on the yellow carton In which the .bottle
la packed. A trial bottle, free of charge,
can be obtained by writing to Dr. W, B.
