Livestock. Warning Out.
Olynipia, Wash. Possibility of a
wholesale quarantine against ship
ments of livestock into the state o
Washington loom larger by reason of
notification received by the state agri
cultural department from Washington,
D. Ci that the dread "foot and mouth"
disease had made its appearance in
Alameda county, California.
The telegraph message came to
State Veterinarian Pelton, from Dr.
J. R. Mohler, chief of the bureau of
animal industry, Washington, D. C,
urging every precaution and asking
for report of any suspicious disease
among livestock. Word was also re
ceived by Dr. James C. Exline, in
charge of the federal bureau of ani
mal industry for the state, stating
that the disease was sprendinsr. A
general alarm was evidently being
sent throughout the western states.
Both Dr. Pelton and Dr. Exline were
much exercised at the disturbing news
and they left for Portland for confer
ence with Dr. Lytle, state veterinarian
f Oregon, as to precautionary meas
ures to be taken by Washington and
If necessary, said Dr. Pelton, the
department would go to practically
any extreme to keep the disease from
getting a foothold in this state.
The foot and mouth disease, states
Dr. Pelton, is the worst scourage
known to domestic animals, being
highly infectious and contagious, ab
solutely incurable and attacking not
only horses and cattle, but also sheep
and swine. Diseased or Infected stock
must he immediately killed and great
care taken in the destruction of the
carcass and for completo disinfection
of all surroundings.
Just what steps will he taken in
this instance cannot be known, Dr.
Pelton stated, until further word is
received as to the extent and origin
of the disease in Alameda county,
which will probably be known in a
day or two. If any extensive amount
is shipped in from other states, a
quarantine will be thrown around the
entire state and all shipments held in
designated quarantine stations for inspection.
Government Plans to Market Timber.
Washington, D. C. Sale by public
bidding of approximately 730,000,000
feet, board measure, of ripe western
yellow pine and other species of tim
ber on the Klamath Indian reserva
tion of Oregon was approved by the
secretary of the interior last week.
The timber is the tribal property
of the Indians living on this reser
vation and is to be disposed of under
authority of an act of congress passed
in 1910. Proceeds from the sale, after
the cutting of the timber, which is ex
pected to take several years, will go
into the tribal fund of the Klamath
Indians. Offering of the timber will
be made in three different units.

and radio to spikeless cactus, meatless

that is commanding the greatest at

The Thurston county bee keepers,
meeting in Olympia, are focusing their
optics upon a great little playmate
for the children, a new type of bee,
of the Adel strain, developed by scien
tific processes. This beo is as harm
less as a soldier at parade rest. He
has no stinger, has no offensive arma
ment whatever, and if attacked must
depend upon the speed of his wings.
E. J. Campbell of Tenino Is the
exhibitor. Abel is said to bo a great
little bee, fond of Washington's cli
mate, and one of the sweetest little
honey gatherers that ever happened.
Campbell's exhibit A is drawing the
attention of all the Thurston county
