As a result of a survey of pure-
bred dogs in this State, the answer
to an oft-asked question can now be
given. The Pennsylvania survey was
part of the nation-wide ‘‘dog breed
census” covering 44,988 dogs kept
for com onship or exhibition.
Over 70 different breeds were listed.
For convenience in tabulating, the
various breeds were broken down in-
to seven recognized groups; namely,
non-sporting dogs, terriers, toys,
bird-dogs, hounds, working dogs and
farm-ranch dogs. The playful Boston
Terrier in numbers leads all Pennsyl-
vania dogs as well as its own non-
sporting classification, although the
Chow Chow, of striking Chinese ap-
e, is becoming quite popular
The Wire Fox-terrier and the Scottie,
strong favorites in urban homes, eas-
ily lead the terrier group, with Fox-
terriers numbering three to every
Scottie. Among the smaller breeds,
the Pekinese, an Oriental toy dog
of great antiquity, is the reigning
favorite, with the Pomeranian hold-
ing a strong second place.
Setters and Pointers retain their
long-time supremacy as bird-dogs,
but with merry little Cocker
Spaniel popular and well-liked in both
urban and rural sections. The Beagle,
whose musical bark thrills the hun-
ter, is the favorite of hounds. Most
numerous of working dogs is the Ger-
man Shepherd, while the Collie con-
tinues as the favorite of farm dogs.
Some interesting facts were
brought out by the survey. Purebred
dogs are definitely on the increase.
This fact is corroborated by increas-
ed registrations on the stud books of
the American Kennel Club and Amer-
jcan Field. The larger and more
heavily coated breeds predominate in
the rural sections, while the smaller
breeds and those having smooth, wiry
or silky coats are found largely in
the centers of population. Pug dogs
and mastiffs, at the height of popu-
larity at the opening of the present
century, have now all but disappear-
The house-dog is the answer to
present-day small home and apart-
ment living, and keeping a dog with-
in the home is but a small problem
if certain simple but essential prin-
ciples are observed, according to the

That for should be clean and
dry and protected against draft. He
should be given outdoor exercise
every day, Fifteen minutes of hearty
romping will do him more good than
several miles at a slow walk. A meal
of a prepared, well-balanced meat
food in the evening and some dog
biscuits in the morning is all a dog
needs in the way of food. Avoid table
scraps, starchy or soupy foods and
sweets, and provide fresh, clean wa-
ter at all times. “Rin-tin-tin,” fa-
mous movie dog, has been on just
such a regime for the past eight
years, and today, at 13 years of age,
is in better physical condition than
many dogs several years younger.

Vail medals are awarded annually
by the Bell Telephone Company of

As feature of the citation
of Mrs. Button for a Vail medal is
the fact that while she is not an

An unusually large number of rabid
dogs have made their appearance in
several sections of the Common-
wealth, according to the bureau of
animal industry, Pennsylvania de-
t of agriculiure.
Forty positive cases of rabies in
dogs were fouid by the bureau dur-|
ing January and February this year,
fourteen persons were reported bit-
ten and 444 animals were exposed.
In taking the usual precautionary
steps, the bureau quarantined 427
dogs and other animals on 190 prem-
ises. In addition, seventy-five dogs
were killed by owners as a safe-
The section where rabies is most
prevalent are those near large cen-
ters of population, as for example,
in Chester, Delaware and Lancaster
counties in the southeast, Luzerne
in the east central, and Allegheny
and Fayette in the west.
The State has been handling, so
far this year, the rabies situation
under special or individual gquaran-
tine where specific premises and
dogs are placed under strict control.
At present, the officials are watch-
ing the situation very closely and if
conditions should warrant, a general
quarantine may be necessary in cer-
tain localities.

But She Found Animal too Boisterous

noticed a small black object about 100
yards away. Going over to it he found
a strange wooly little ball, a young
musk ox calf. The poor baby had gone

suddenly become an orphan.
“The calf seemed to think dad was
a long lost friend, for it ran right to
the shelter of his legs and accompan-

they slept together—at least they lay
down side by side and tried to sleep.
The calf was covered with a corner
of musk ox skin, but this did aot

“Technology of the utilization of
coal,” Hoar declared, “has advanced
more rapidly in the last few years
than at any time in its history. Lig-
nite is utilized for steam raising
purposes; gas is made from coal or
from oil; and in Germany motor
fuels have been recently obtained
from the distillates of coal.”
These new developments, Hoar
points out, have resulted in
savings to coal consuming industries. |
“The electric utilities, for example,
have been enabled to reduce the
amount of coal n to develop
a kilowatt hour from 3.2 pounds in
1919, to 1.76 pounds in 1928, a re-
duction of nearly 45 per cent,” he
explains, “The railroads, which ab-
sorb about a quarter of the total
fuel consumption
States, and the iron and steel in-
in the United
| dustry have been effecting similar
| savings.”
| While a large amount of coal will
‘continue to be employed in the gen-
eration of heat and power, Hoar de-
(declares, an increasing part of its val-
{ue in the future will be found in its
| chemical properties. Already
fifth of the annual output of bitu-
| minous coal in this country is being
subjected to chemical processing.
