To Celebrate Tick-Free Day.
Throughout Mississippi and in 90
counties and parts of counties In eight
other southern states, local olflclals
und citizens are arranging local cele-
brations to mark the dipping out of
this costly parasite of Southern agrl-
The govenior of Mississippi, by spe-
cial proclamation has declared Decem-
ber 1. when by the release of 28 coun-
ties, his entire state will be freed fron^
quarantine, a (Jay of special rejoicing.!
At the state house he will receive the
congratulations of the United States
department of agriculture for the
state's effective co-operation In dip-
ping out the tick and driving a wedge
of free territory through to the Gulf.
Congratulatory messages are to be
sent nlso to the governors of the other
states and be transmitted to each
county celebrating Its entry into the
free cattle territory of the nation.
What Tick Eradication Means to
Before the ticks were dipped out,
these parasites annually killed many
cattle with tick fever, steadily sucked
out of cattle vast quantities of blood
which should have gone to make meat
or milk; wasted, therefore, much of
the grain and forage fed to cattle |
and, finally, prevented the Introduc-
tion of non-Immune breeding stock for
the improvement of local beef and
dairy herds. Ti^e presence of the
tick barred shipments of local cattle
from the open competition of the free
pens at the packing centers and forced
their owners to sell them at a disad-
vantage from quarantine pens for Im-
mediate slaughter only.
Tick Now Dipped Out of 379,312
The South since 1906 has succeeded
In releasing from quarantine 379.312
square miles or over 51 per cent of
the originally quarantined area. Mis-
sissippi Is the fifth state to be de-
clared entirely free, the states (jf Cali-
fornia, Kentucky, Missouri ana Ten-
nessee previously having been re-
leased. Special credit, however, is due
to Mississippi because much of the
area freed was heavily infested with
tick. There remain in ' e entire South
349,250 square miles yet infested and
to be cleaned and released from fed-
eral quarantine. The example of Mis-
sissippi. however. It Is believed, will
serve as a strong incentive to neigh-
boring states to widen the wedge to
the Gulf until the tick Is eradicated
from the entire South.
To Make New Record in 1918.
That this year's record will be ex-
ceeded In 1918 and that the tick will
be banished from the nation by 1921
are strong probabilities. The states
of Arkansas and Louisiana, following
the example of Mississippi, have
passed state-wide laws making the
eradication of the tick compulsory In
every Infested county. The legislature
of the state of Texas has recognised
the Importance of tick eradication, al-
though its laws do not make eradica-
tion compulsory In its various conn-
ties for some time to come. Indica-
tions from all the tick-Infested states
are that In many sections the people
have grown thoroughly tired of the
toll the Uck is taking and patriotical-
ly are building dipping vats and mak-
ing preparations to free their cattis
during the coming year.
