TESTING CATTLE LEGAL
' The right of the legislature to re
quire owners of breeding cattle to
submit animals to tubercuiin test and
adopt reasonable measures for carry
ing out such requirements recently
was upheld by the supreme court of
Nebraska. The man who resisted the
operations of the jaw contended that
it was unconstitutional because it
discriminated between breeding cat
tle, which are covered by the law,
and feeding cattle which are exempt
' from inspection, and that both breed
ing and feeding cattle are susceptible
to tuberculosis. The point is made in
the decision that feeding cattle are
raised for market and must neces
sarily pass through many stages of
inspection before the product finally
reaches the public for consumption;
that the existence of tuberculosis in
breeding and dairy cattle is a menace
to the public health both of infants
and adults and is matter of common
knowledge, The decision held that
the legislature was within its power
in adopting the classification, and
closed with this declaration:' 'Statutes
to promote and protect the public
health by suppressing .tuberculosis
among domestic animals are for a
public purpose and are liberally con
strued to accomplish the intended pur

All criticism relative to extension of

SAD BUT TRUE
Some one suggests ' that the only
way to drive is with the idea con
stantly in mind that the other fellow
may be an idiot, says the Los Angeles
Times. This is sad but true. Reck
lessness seems to be part of the
motoring code with millions of
American drivers. And the inevit
able result is that, every year, 25 or
30 thousand persons are killed and
hundreds of thousands injured in pre
ventable automobile accident:!: The
tragic part of it is that enormou3 an
nual waste of life and property is
almost entirely unnecessary. The un
preventable accident is rare as the
dodo bird. Someone is incompetent or
reckless in the case of practically
every collision, great or small, be
tween motor cars. The blame may be
laid in two places. First is the ap
parent indifference of many motorists
to the fundamentals of safety, Sec
ond is the lack of strict licensing
laws in most states to keep the in
competent and reckless off the road,
and an accompanying lack of en
forcement of modernized, common
Bense traffic codes,
DAIRYING VALUABLE INDUSTRY
The state marketing bureau of
Florida, in its monthly Bulletin, de
votes Borne space to the encourage
ment of the dairy industry, and ad
vocacy of the greater consumption of
dairy products. Its arguments and
conclusions are entirely applicable in
the widespread dairying . areas of
Oregon. It says: "No one can deny
that countries that have shown the
most progress and recorded the g"eat
est achievements since Abrahan 1-ert
herds have been consumers of dairv
products and that the largest, strong
est, most vigoorus and heaUhieJt peo
.ples, attaining the greatest ages and
suffering the lowest rate of infant
mortality, have been literal con
Burners of those products. The peo
pie who have led the world in com
merce. finances, industry and lilera
ture. music, science and evtry other
activity of human intellect, as well as
religion have been consumers of an
ample supply from the dairy,''

Now there is in operation an
"electric hen" that hatches out 10,
000 chicks at a time. This is the latest
device to increase production and cut
down costs in the brooder industry.
The new incubator has been widely
adopted by poultrymen.
In Hayward, California, F. C.
Steiner installed a 10,000 cluck
electric incubator, operating it side
by side with oil burning equipment
of the same capacity. The compari
sons are worth noting. Fuel oil for
the 21 day hatching period cost V).
Exoense of heating the electric in
cubator for the same term was $10.
Amonsr other points made ir the
comparison, the records show 5 per
cent srreater hatch in the ele.trie in
cubator owing to proper ventilation
and the even temperature, controlled
hv the thermostat, with absence of
oil fumes. The electric applianca re
quires only one-tenth the floor space
necessary for an oil burning mouDa-
tor of the same capacity.
In the case of the oil burner the
eggs had to be turned by hind, a
task that kept a trained man busy
for three hours every day; turning
the esres in an electric incubator is
an automatic operation that takes
less than five minutes daily.
