TICK ERADICATION RESUMED.
The Bureau of Animal Industry of
the United States Department of Ag-
riculture Is resuming active opera-
tions for the eradication of the cattle
ticks which prevail in the southern
part of the country and transmit the
contagion of Texas fever of cattle.
Its men are being sent Into the lleld
and preparations are being made to
push the work of extermination vig-
orously during the warm weather
when the ticks are most active.
Since this work was begun, two
years ago, an area of about 56,000
square mile*, or almost the size of
the State of Georgia, has been freed
from the ticks. As a result the quar-
antine on southern cattle has been
either modified or entirely removed
from this area. Last year work ^as
done to a greater or less extent In the
States of Virginia, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Georgia. Alabama,
Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Ar-
kansas. Oklahoma, Louisiana, Texas,
and California, and it is proposed this
year to continue In the same States
with the addition of a small portion
of Mississippi. Most of the work has
been and will continue to be done In
sections contiguous to the quarantine
line, the object being to push the line
farther south from year to year; but
encouragement is given to local work
in any part of the quarantined dis-
trict in the assurance that wnen any
considerable area is rendered tick
free it will be released from quaran-
The work is being done by coopera-
tion between the Federal Government
and the State and local authorities.
Congress has appropriated $250,000
for tho year beginning July 1. and it
is expected that the States and coun-
ties where the work is carried on will
duplicate this sum. The committee
on appropriations of the House of
Representatives expressed itself very
strongly to the effect that the States
should bear a reasonable share of the
cost and that the Federal work should
be mainly confined to States where
cooperation is received.
Various methods for exterminating
the ticks are used, including trans-
ferring the cattle from pasture to
pasture at suitable intervals, and dip-
ping, spraying, and hand dressing ine
cattle with oil and oil emulsion. In
sections where there are large herds
and large ranches dipping on a large
scale Is practiced, either alone or in
connection with pasture rotation,
while In other sections, where the cat-
tle on some farms frequently consist
, only of a cow or an ox team, hand
dressing with oil Is found to be the
only practicable method.
The damage caused by the ticks and
tho benefits to follow from their erad-
ication are not generally appreciated.
It is estimated that the Texas fever
tick Is responsible for abuu J40.00U,
000 of loss annually to the peopi© of
the Inefcted country, and that it also
lowers the assets of the South by an
additional $23,250,000, making the enor-
mous aggregate of $63,250,000. To wipe
out this heavy iohs is the object of
the work now under way, and the re-
sults already accomplished leave no
doubt that success Is possible, thougn
a number of years will be required for
the completion of the undertaking.
Much depends upon the cattle owners,
who can either hasten or retard pro-

AUTO RIDE FOR OKPHANS
Atlanta, On., July 14.-Orphans' day was
observed by the automobile owners of
Atlanta today, in accordance with the
annual custom of taking the children of
the various orphans' homes on an excur-
sion. Several hundred youngsters par-
ticipated In today s outing and a large
pyoportion of the machines in the city
hound's long chase.
Following clo«e on the heels of a big
crav fox, running for live days and nights
covering a distance of probably 200 miles
through the woods and along the sandy
shores of Cape Cod. only to have the fox
escape by wearing him out. is the rec-
ord of a hound four years old, one or
three valuable dogs that a party of hun
ters recently took with them to hunt
foxes In the woods at Wellfleet.
The dog elianed the fox, or perhaps
several foxes, for it may have been
switched off from one to another In its
travels — and did not show up after
starting the fox. After waiting for
hours for the dog to return the hunters
went back to tho village, expecting the
d,,g would give up the chase. Night
came on and they became alarmed, fear-
ing the dog had been lost.
A local gunner who accompanied ine
fox hunters into the woods said he
would find the dog and ship him home
the next day. Inquiries were made
through the villages, but no one had seen
the dog and it appeared as If lie must
have been drowned In crossing the
swamps on the thin ice. At the end of
five days a dog was seen following a
big gr;iy fox through the village of East
The man who saw the fox as it limp-
ed through his back yard rushed Into the
house for his gun. As he camo out he
saw a hound limping along and vainly
trying to hark; the fox had disappeared
and the dog, which could hardly stand,
dropped In Its tracks nearly dead from
exhaustion. The man gave the dog food
and drink in small quantities and in a
few days It seemed to be all right. On
the collar was the name of the owner,
tn whom the man wrote, and in a few
days he came after it. It was then
learned that the dog started tho fox In
Wellfleet and for five days and nights
had been chasing.
II.' had been seen chasing the fox at
Ellisville, on the shores of Cape Cod Bay
and Near White Island In the cranberry
district; he had ert B8ed the harbors and
rivers and had given up when nearly
dead in East Wareham. 60 miles from
where the hunt was started. It was
said. "The dog was a mere skeleton and
the fox seemed as if he had been run-
ning for a month."
There are Instances on Cape Cod
where dogs have followed foxes for days
at a time, hut none of the old Lun-
n r.s remember any such performances
is this one.—Forest and Stream.

SHEEPMEN ON A BIG RANGE.
(By J. B. Stetson, Montana.)
It is a different proposition to take
care of a band of 3,000 ewes on a big
range than the care of a dozen or
two on a farm fenced In small lots.
On the great ranges of the west
the lambing season begins about the
first of May and ends a month later.
The youn? lambs as soon as dropped
are kept under cover until the weather
gets warm. A band of, say, 3,000 ewes
requires about a dozen men, under
the direction of a chief herder, and
they are busy day and night the en-
tire lambing season.
As soon aa lambs are dropped they
are put with their mothers Into a
wagon and hauled to the main shed.
These wagons are divided Into sev-
eral compartments, and as .soon as a
lamb Is dropped a herder sees that It
has milk and then puts the ewe and
the lamb into a compartment and start
for another. When he hds a load the
wagon is sent to the main corral and
another wagon is loaded.
When a ewe refuses her lamb she
Is put Into a small pen just big enough
to hold her. so that the lamb may
have a chance to suck without being
Sometimes as many as 150 lambs
are dropped every day, and when the
flock is scattered over a considerable
area the men are kept on the Jump
The ewes and lambs are kept in
small bunches until a large number of
lambs have been dropped, when the
ewes and lambs are then gathered Into
one large band This band is added to
until the lambing season is nearly
over, when it is merged into the main
When the lambs are a month old
they are docked, marked, the bucks
castrated and they are then turned
out to take their chances with their
The tails are counted and by this
means the percentage of increase and
the exact number of lambs Is obtaln-
Large flocks should show an annual
increase o fabout 75 per cent. Good
sheepmen claim that each lamb drop-
ped coats about 25 t ents, but this de-
pends largely on the ability of the
owner to keep down expenses. Herd-
ers are paid from $35 to $50 a month.
Food Is supplied to them, which they
cook themselves while on the range In
summer time, but during the winter a
cook Is selected for the general mess.
Ranch hands are paid from $30 to
$35 a month and board, and they raise
hay and do such other farming as Is
