The Farmers Hog Did. and the Flesh
From it Had to he Thrown Away.
A queer case of hog disease came
to light the other day. A Benton
county farmer killed a porker, and
when the carcass was opened, all
the fat and the portions of flesh
that ought to be white were found
to be very yellow. . The unusual
color caused the farmer to debate
in his mind as to whether or not
the pork would make right good
eating. After some deliberation,
he finally bundled up the liver,
heart, lungs and other vital organs
of his hog, together with portions
of the flesh and fat, and brought it
to the Agricultural College for ex
amination. ' There, the specimens
were turned over to Prof Per not
of the bacteriological department,
who soon found in the liver, evi
dence, that the hog when killed,
was suffering from an attack of
jaundice. The farmer asked if the
meat of a hog in that fix would be
good to eat, and when told that it
would not make first class diet, he
concluded to throw his pork away,
which he went home and did.
Pathological specimens from hor
ses, of which nine died in an East
ern Oregon stable within a short
time were examined in the bact
eriological laboratories recently.
The ailment was found to be a kid
ney disorder, and prevented these
organs from performing their us
ual function. As a symptom of the
disease in cases where one kidney
was badly affected, the body of the
ailing animal on that side was con
stantly wet with perspiration.
Recently a sample of milk that a
Portland baby was taking from its
mother's breast was sent to the
college for investigation. Along
with the milk came a letter from
the father saying that the infant
was very ill in spite of the effort sof
three prominent physicians to ef
fect a cure. The milk was referred
to the bacteriological department,
and in it Professor Pernot found
germs of erysipelas and also pus
in considerable quantities. A dis
patch telling of the discovery was
sent the father by Prof Kniseley
together with instructions to cease
the use of the milk. An article in
Thursday's Portland 1 Telegram re
lates that the infant has been given
cow's milk, and that under the
change of diet it's condition is
