THE VACCINATION OF FARM
Harrisburg.—The Pennsylvania De-
partment of Agriculture has under-
taken a State-wide program for the
vaccination of all farm animals on
farms where anthrax, black-leg and
hemorrhagic septicemia has been
found during the past year.
State veterinarians have found
these diseases on 558 farms of the
State since the beginning of 1921 and
letters have been sent to the owners
of these farms asking that their ani-
mals be vaccinated before the cattle
are turned into pasture for the
It has been found that the soil be-
comes infected where the disease has
once been prevalent and vaccination
is the only known preventive against
a recurrence of the disease.
The State will furnish the serum
free of charge and the only cost to
the farmer will be that of having the
serum injected by a veterinarian. Ad-
vertisements have also been inserted
in many of the newspapers through-
out the State, calling the attention of
the farmers to this liberal policy.
Anthrax, black-leg and hemorrhag-
ic septicemia cause thousands of dol-
lar’s worth of loss to the farmers of
Pennsylvania each year and Secretary
of Agriculture Fred Rasmussen has
directed the Bureau of Animal Indus-
try to take all the steps possible to
reduce this loss.
Farmers in any section of the State
who have had animals afflicted with
any one of the diseases mentioned are
urged to secure the preventive vaccine
and have their stock immunized. Ex-
perience has shown that it is neces-
sary to have the animals vaccinated
each year if they are to be immune.
FOR WINTER USE.
The storage of eggs in the season
of high egg production when low
prices prevail, for use during the sea-
son of low production with high pric-
es, is enirely practical and economic-
al for home consumption. The most
satisfactory preservation is water
glass, which can be obtained at most
any drug store. The equipment nec-
essary is sufficient containers to hold
the eggs and still allow for the liquid
to cover them at a depth of about two
inches. Use strictly fresh, infertile
eggs. Place them in the container
then pour in the liquid. Water glass
solution is usually prepared by using
one part water glass to nine parts
water. Keeping this in a cool place
is advisable. A four gallon crock will
easily contain about ten dozen eggs.
Approximately eight quarts to the
mixture will be necessary to properly
preserve the eggs.
These eggs can be very satisfactor-
ily used for any method of cooking,
except that when they are boiled for
table use, it is advisable to prick the
larger end of the eggs so that the air
may escape. Sometimes the whites of
the eggs will take on a pinkish cast
which is entirely harmless for eatable
purposes. Often times also. the liquid
will turn white and the gelatinous ma-
terial stick to the eggs which is easily
washed off. This is entirely harmless.
It should be remembered, however:
that the preserving solution is good
for one year only. Further informa-
tion on this subject can be obtained
at the Farm Bureau office or the poul-
try extension department, State Col-
GERMAN CARP A MENACE.
The American Game Protective As-
sociation is constantly in receipt of
letters from members complaining of
the damage done to native fish by the
German carp, and asks, “Who will
solve the problem of ridding our wa-
ters of this unwelcome alien.” North-
ern lakes which contained only the fin-
est game fish are becoming overrun
with these aquatic swine. Whenever
these fish get into a lake, the game
fish contained in the same water have
an up-hill fight for existence.
carp is truly the hog of the water, as
he feeds by rooting out the vegetation
from the bed and along the banks of
the lakes and streams.” This dis-
turbs the spawn of other fish and de-
prives them of their food, says the As-
Many complaints have also been re-
ceived from duck shooters who assert-
ed that carp had killed all the vegeta-
tion in their favorite waters and that
ducks no longer visited them. Many
of the States have tried different
methods to get rid of the carp, but the
Association has never heard of any
who were successful. The only prac-
tical plan is to seine them out, but the
Association doubts if this will ever
do more than keep the increase in
check. Arguments have been advanc-
ed against this method by men who
contend that the seiners drag their
nets along the shores of the lakes and
entirely destroy the spawn of game
fishes thereby doing more harm than

SIXTY REINDEER FROM
Sixty reindeer recently began the
last lap of their journey from far-off
Norway to a new home in the upper
Michigan peninsula, in care of David
R. Jones, chief deputy of the Michigan
Game, Fish and Forest Department.
They were released from quarantine
in New York, where they had been
held for treatment to rid them of an
Should the animals thrive in the
country to which they are being taken
for breeding purposes, a great step
would be taken toward solving the na-
tion’s problems of a dwindling meat
supply, according to Mr. Jones.
He cited figures to show that agri-
culture was encroaching more and
more on cattle ranges, and asserted
cold lands in the north, not suited to
agriculture, must be utilized through
importation of reindeer.
Indications are that we have more
quail in Pennsylvania today than for
many years past. The native birds
seem to have increased in sections
where they are still found, while the
Mexican Bob-white received and
stocked in the spring time have thriv-
ed in most every section where re-
leased. Unfortunateiy so many land
owners refused to let the good sports-
men kill any quail on their premises
with the result that sportsmen cannot
continue protecting and restocking
quail, and in years to come quail will
be back to a point where they were
five or ten years back, unless the con-
dition can be remedied. Through the
sportsmen’s organizations it is hoped
that these questions can be worked
out with the land owners so that
sportsmen will be permitted to hunt
quail within reason in order that the
birds will furnish sport, that the cov-
eys will be scattered and intermixed,
and that the sportsmen can feel free
to continue restocking and feeding
during the winter time as has been
done in the last six or more years.
The true sportsmen of Pennsylvania
are killing few quail because they are
just as much interested in protecting
and increasing the birds as the land
owners. Last year quail were not
compelled to face the rigors of severe
winter weather, and with favorable
weather conditions this past year sev-
eral broods were reared. We have au-
thentic reports of a Mexican Bob-
white quail that hatched a brood of
fourteen young birds on the 10th day
of September last year near Indiana.
If winter conditions should become se-
vere next winter a special effort will
be made to have as many birds fed in
their native habitat as possible as well
as be cared for during the winter
There were 49,885 quail killed in
Pennsylvania last season at an aver-
age of 8 ounces each or a total weight
of 18,708 pounds.
There were 462,374 resident hunt-
ing licenses issued in Pennsylvania
last year and 1,763 non-resident li-
censes issued, compared to 262,355
resident and 532 non-resident issued
There were 29 fatal and 130 non-
fatal accidents in Pennsylvania dur-
ing the hunting season last year com-
pared to 29 fatal and 119 non-fatal
accidents in 1915.

Does Your Budget
You read in the newspapers about
the various European governments
trying to make their budgets balance.
A government cannot long expend
more money than it receives, any more
than an individual can. It is import-
ant to balance the household budget,
and included in this budget should be
a proper provision for saving.
The finances of the family must be
placed on a business basis if proper
provision is to be made for the time
when earning power diminishes. Nine
times out of ten the women are the
money savers of the family. They
have the real knack of saving. They
know, too, how to make one dollar do
the work of two in buying.
This bank welcomes the savings ac-
counts of thrifty women and will be
glad to assist them in business mat-
