Mange in New Mexico.
Dr. Victor A. Xorgood of New Mexico,
who is in "Washington said : "The way
that cattle are suffering from mange in
the Western and Southwestern states
is annoying and expensive to breeders.
This disease that is attacking the herds
owes its origin to the importation of
thioughbred bulls. It does not kill, but
it causes the cattle so much distress
that they cease to rustle for nutriment,
do nothing but scratch themselves, lose
flesh, and often succumb to the first
spell of severe weather. Happily, there
is a sure cure for the mange, and owners
can save their steers by placing them in
dipping vats. They are immersed in a
liquid that is almost certain to put them
in healthy condition.
"Recognizing the peril of infection,
nearly all of the Western states have
passed the strictest quarantine laws.
Kansas has even quarantined against a
number of its own counties, and cattle
in that district can not be driven a dis
tance of fifteen miles unless to dipping
vats. Ontof this situation a great
deal of bitter feeling has arisen, as is
always the case, whether human beings
or animals are quarantined."
