SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1
On Saturday 70,754 Square
Miles in United Statea Will
Be Ridded of the Deadly
The U. S. Department Agri
culture, through their bureau of
Animal Husbandry, have announced
that on December Iat, 1917, it will
celebrate "Tick-Free-Day", when
70, 754 square miles will have been
free from the tick, and lifted from
the quarantine during the year 1917
The South is peculiary bleated
in this respect, as practically all
of this territory is within the South
ern States. Mississippi will on
this day come from under the
quarantine, together with ninety
areas in eight other states. |North
Carolina has several areas that will
be included in this total, when
Northampton, a sister County of
ours will go tick free. The an
nouncement will be greeted with
enthusiasm by the people of
the South. Only, recently the
southern farmers have begun the
production of soybeans, and velvet
beans, which can now be utilized
towards producing a larger and bet
ters upply of cattle beef. It ism ade
even more significant by the fact
that our government, as never be
fore. are conducting a nation-wide
campaign for the larger production
of meats as an effective aid to food
There will be an excellent market
for meats for years irrespective of
whether peace comes soon or is long
deferred! All theworidti hungry
and a wonderful opportunity awaits
the South to satisfy this essential
demand if only it will eradicate the
tick, enable itself tomakefull rather
than partial use of its forage, and
open its cattle to the free cattle
markets of the world.
In the matter of tick eradication
Hertford County ranks rights at the
bottom. There only remain a very
few conn ties in North Carolina that
have not already been lifted from
the quarantine, and among those
are Hertford and Bertie Counties.
Dr. A. J. Knilans of the Bureau of
Ana mil Husbandry, is now located
at Windsor, in Bertie County, and
is erecting vats over that County.
He has also erected a few in Hert
ford Connty, but states our people
are woefully indifferent and lack
ing in iniatitive in this great work.
So many people, ignorant of the
facts, have completely ignored this
work, and regard it as an innova
tion. But, our National] Govern
ment does not so regard it; for
they are paying annually out of
their funds millions of dollars for
competent to carry on this work
over the entire country. Our
County should awaken from their
apathy, and begin a mighty crusade
against the pesky tick, which is do
ing more-to hamper and destroy the
cattle industry than all other agen
Below we offer to our readers a
few personal letters written by
large cattle growers of this section
of the State, and every one of them
put their unqualified endorsement
upon the benefits derived from this
work. Look over these carefully,
and resolve no? to chase the tick out
of Hertford County.
Bethel, N. C.. Sept. 27-'17
Dr. C. L. Holt,
Greenville, N. C.,
Although I own but a few cattle
I found last Autumn that they
were in poor condition, three of my
Jersey cows apparently being sick
and probably would have soon died
had the' ticks which covered them
not been speedily removed.
A year arfo this month I had a
dipping vat constructed on my farm
and after the first dipping my
cattle were entirely cleaned up all
the ticks and began to improve in
flesh. Neighbors who have seen
the results obtained with my cattle
have since dipped their is no doubt
about the result because when a
