There are two classes of swine.
The fat and bacon. The fat
breeds have all been developed in
America, they are all thick bodi-
ed, low set, and dropping eared.
There are three breeds; the Po
ind China, Duroc Jersey, and
the Chester White. The Poland
China are black having six white
points. The Duroc Jersey are
cherry red and the Chester
Whites are white.
The bacon breeds are the Tain
worth Yorkshire, Berkshire and
Hampshire. Ali these are Etig
lisli bred but the Hampshire.
The bacon hog is noted for the
large amount of lean meat on his
carcass. The Tamworth is sandy
red, the Yorkshire white, the
Berkshire black with six white
•points, and the Hampshire an
black with a large white band
around the body just behind tin
front legs. All bacon hogs have
upright ears. Every good hog
should have a strong bade,
smooth sides, strong bone, and
straight legs. ,
In classifying sheep there
are three classes: The tine, the
medium Sne, the long wooled
The fine wooled sheep are all
Merinos, their wool counts sixty
per cent and they are a great
range sheep. The medium wool
ed sheep are the Dorsot, Srop-
shire, Oxford and Hampshire.
Their meet is the most impor
tant thing about them. The
long wooled sheep are the Cots-
wold and the Lincoln, and are
noted for their long wool. The
short wooled sheep are the best
adapted to this country.
Dr. L. L Lewis gave us lec
tureson horses, cattle, and hogs.
Some of the ways to tell whether
a horse is sound or not are, first
to look at his head lo see if it is
all right, then look at his feet,
because a horse without good
feet is not much of a horse. To
find out whether he has any
faults give him a good drive, then
put him up in a barn and leave
him an hour or two and if there
is anything wrong with his legs
he will show it. To find out
whether he has anything vvrong
with his hrnd leg, draw his foot
up to his flank and then lead him
off. If anything is wrong he
The most common disease
among cattle is black leg. To
find out for sure that a calf has
black leg, is either to rub your
hand on the calf and if he has
black legit will souud as if there
was paper under the hide, or
take a knife and cut it open, if it,
is black leg it will look bloody and
black like it had been bruised. If
any of your neighbors have stock
with black leg, vaccinate your
cattle at once. A cow over two
years old hardly ever has the!
black leg, but if you should have!
one die with the black leg you
should burn or bury them at
once, because it is spread by
dogs, coyotes and other things
carrying the bones of black leg
cattle around. It is riot caused
by what the cattle eats but the
germ gets in some sore on the
calf. Thousands of doses of vac-
cine can be made of on 3 calf by
taking its meat and baking it
until it is crisp and brittle then
.lot curable, generally. When a
person gets it among his hogs
they nearly always die It, is
easily carried from pen to pen,
sometimes from people going in
.1 pen where it is and then going
to someother carryingit 011 their
shoes. It is also carried by
in creeks or rivers, if there aiv
hogs dying above you on a creek
you should get your hogs off the
creek at once. A person 111a,\
keep his hogs from dying by
vaccinating them. Do not wait
until some of your hogs begin
to die, because a hog that tlx
cholera has started on will a I mosi
always die, although you do vac
cinate him. If your hogs do
have the cholera and some get
over it always keep them because
a hog that has had the cholera
once will never have it again.
ATHLETICS AND RULES
At eleven each morning we
have athletics. We were taught

The last day there was a contest
in running, jumping and the shot

The half mile was run in two
minutes and thirty seconds, and
the 100 yards was run in twelve
seconds. The prizes to be given
were A. &. M. pennants.
The rulo was, "Do right, " al

INTERURBAN LINE IS ASSURED

The best assortment of groceries
obtainable, at Brewer's.
According to a statement is-
sued by Judge Whittinghill, one
of the leading promoters of the
inter urban railroad out of Enid
through llenuessey to El Reno
andother places, the negotiations
for the sale ot the bonds is well
under way and the completion
of tli>' line in now practically as-
sured Pile statement was made
by Judgo Whittinghill following
a number of inquiiies he has re-
ceived recently from people
along the route of the proposed
VY h mi seen by a reporter Judge
Whittinghill said: "While it has
been our policy to give out very
little information concerning the
road, I leel that it is proper to
say that so far nothing has oe-
eured to discourage the promot-
ers in the least. We have felt
that the repeated statements
■oncerning the financing of the
road and as to when the constru
ction would begin would only b,«
to provoke further ar.d repeated
inquiries which is generally the
case would result in unnecessary
com ment on the building of the
read. Under the circumstances
I feel warranted in saying that
tin' negotiations for and the sale
ol the bonds are progressing
satisfactory and that the com-
pany is endeavoring to comply
with all requirements necesnary
to complete the negotiations.
I make tins statement once f ir
all because of universal interest;
manifested in the enterprise."
In answer to the question as to
whether the road would be bull',
fudge Whittinghill said it would,
but, funther to than that he hart
nothing more to say. — Eni 1
