Foot and mouth disease appears
among cattle as a high fever .with ves
icles on the Inside of the lips, tongue,
cheeks and roof of the mouth, and also
upon the feet, just above the horn and
between the toes. These besides soon
rupture and leave an ulcerated surface
which interferes with eating and causes
more or less lameness. Few animals
die, but the fever causes the suspen
sion of the milk secretion and a great
loss of flesh. It is estimated that ani
mals lose fifty per cent, in value by an
The most marked characteristics of
the disease are that nearly every bov
ine animal exposed contracts the dis
cuss, and the contagion spreads with
most remarkable rapidity, and is easily
carried from place to place by people,
dogs, and other animals, or Infected
cars. It affects hogs, sheep, goats and
other ruminants and possibly also
horses to a slight extent.
The milk of affected cows is infec
tious and liable to convoy the disease
to children and others partaking of it.
The great loss on account of the dis
ease is not from its fatality, but from
tho loss of milk and llesli, and as the
shrinkage In this way equals half the
value of the unimnls tho disease Is, us
you can see, as bad as those plagues
where only half the animals aro af
fected, but where practically all tho
affected ones die,
I do not know how the contagion was
introduced, ns it did not come through
our quarantine stations. Tho existence
of the contagion in this country is a
great calamity, and threatens our
whole llvo stock Industry. The federal
government will do everything practic
able to coutluo the disease and stump
it out.

Talo Strange nB Fiction Man Who
Introduced tho Navel Orango Into
tho United States Is Now a Public
Charge in tho Midst of Scodlcss
Orange Plenty.
From tho Now York Times.
It Is proposed to celebrate lit 'South
ern California this year the thirtieth
anniversary of the planting oC tho first
navel (seedless) orango tree with a
mammoth orange fair, to which com
petition from orange-growing localities
ull over tho world may bo asked. Nat
urally public attention in California is
turned these days toward the story of
how seedless oranges came to bo culti
vated, for this variety of oranges has
revolutionized the orango markets of
tho world, has added millions of dol
lars to the wealth of California and
Florldn, and has converted great
stretches Of cheap cattle and grazing
lands Into valuable orange groves. A
dozen communities of 6,000 and 10,000
people of beautiful homes and smart
business ways have grown up from
barren tracts in Southern California
because of the rapid expansion of tho
orango trade, which, In turn, wns
brought about by the cultivation or tho
navel orange.
Thirty years ago I.os Angeles, tho
orange metropolis of California, was a
slow, plodding pueblo of G,000 people.
Today it is a thriving city of 120,000
people. The transcontinental railroads
earned $5,200,000 in freight on oranges
last year, and 90 per cent, of It wns for
navel orange tonnage. Since the navel
orango has been cultivated some $S7,
000,000 has been invested in orango
growing in California that is, in land,
trees, vast irrigation enterprises, pack
ing houses, etc., and over 12,000 men
have loft other pursuits to engage In
orange growing and marketing.
The strangest fact of all in tills in
crease in wealth production and the
great changes wrought in Southern Cal
ifornia by the Introduction of the seed
less orange Into tho United States is
that Luther C. Tibbets, who planted
and grew the original tree, is a home
less, whlte-lialred, tattered public
charge In Itlversido county. Every day
ho looks out from the county poorhouse
across a broad valley on a vast expanse
of green orange groves and superb
homes, and reflects that when he plant
ed his first navel orauge tree there not
a tree grow in the valley. Riverside
county sends some 8,000 carloads Df
seedless ornges to market annua ly,
and they are worth to the growers
about $3,000,000. There was not a dime's
worth of fruit marketed when Luther
Tibbets set out his little navel orange
trees alongside his cabin in lonely, sun
baked ltlverside valley thirty years ago.
There is a wide ocean of difference
between the little acid, seedy, and tough
sklnr?d orange of a generation ago and
the large smooth-skinned, sweet seed
less orango of today. More than that,
a generation ago the orange crop of the
United States came from a few dis
tricts along the Indian river in Florida,
and was worth about $200,000. Nowa
days the United States grows some 10,
000,000 boxes of oranges every year, and
they are worth to the growers about
$12,000,000. The line original seedless
orange trees came from Bahla, Brazil,
and were imported through the sense of
a woman. " Mrs. Xellle Desmond, of
Syracuse, X. Y., was visiting her
brother in a rubber camp along tho
Amazon. The natives brought her sev
eral seedless oranges, which were a
curiosity to ther. She inquired whence
they came, and found they grew upon
a clump of frealc orange trees in the
neighborhood. Mrs. Desmond returned
to the United States soon after, and
brought several of the seedless fruit
home with her as curiosities. Horace
Capron, who was then commissioner of
agriculture, heard of Mrs. Desmond's
find, and entered upon a correspondence
with her. The result was that the Unit
ed States consul at Bahal was instruct
ed to procure several of the tiny seed
less orange trees and send them to the
agricultural department at Washington.
They remained in the experimental
garden there several years. Florida
was the only orange-growing region In
America, then, and three of the trees
were sent to a grower on tho Indian
liver, but what became of them was
never known. Along in 1871 Luther C.
Tlbblts removed from Maine to Cali
fornia, and hearing that fertile gov
ernment land might be hud free in
Southern California by actual settle
ment upon it, he came down the coast
to Los Angeles and tooK up, under the
homestead law, a quarter section in
what Is now tho heart of the city of
Riverside. Mrs. Tibblts wns then with
relatives In Washington, D, C To her
Mr. Tibblts wrote, telling whero be
had established a homo nnd nsking her
to go to tho ngrlcutural department
and seek plants and trees suitable to
a semi-tropical climate. Mrs. Tibblts
was a relative of Mrs. Benjamin V.
Butler, and a letter from General But
ler, then u member ofl congress, to tho
commissioner of auiiculturo secured
for Mrs, Tibblts extra consideration at
t lie department. On condition that Mr.
Tlbbelts would glvo the plants and
trees careful attention and report oo
casionully how they fared in a new and
untried horticultural Held, the depart
ment sent to Mr. Tibbets, grqpe vines,
Japanese plum trees and the three re
maining seedless orange trees from Ba
hla. All were planted nt the side of the
Tibbets cabin In May, 1ST2. They were
tho llrst horticultural efforts In that
region of tho state. A few months lat
er other settlers In the valley set out
little groves of seedling orango trees,
and still others experimented with
growing apricots and peaches, The
settlers wero too busy seeking a liveli
hood In a now and lonely locality to
pay attention to Tlbbets's new plants,
and trees, whllo ho watered and culti
vated and waited for the earliest fruit
to append on them,
Ono of the tiny seedless orango trees
was chewed up by a cow, but for llvo
years tho two survivors wero carefully
attended. Then each tree bora two
oranges. It was the summer and full
work to care for and watch tho trees
to protect them from the wind and
trespassers, and Mr. ant! Mrs. Tlbbetts
patiently waited while the fruit de
veloped from green bullets to great
golden, Juicy, pungent globes tho llrst
naval oranges ever grown outside the
swamp on tho Amazon. On January
22, 1878, two of tho new oranges wero
cut open and critically tasted by a
little company of orango growers at
Riverside. A new star of first magni
tude rose that duy in the horticul
tural firmament.

The handful of orange growers in
California in those days began to pay
attention to Tibbets' wonderful fruit.
The next year tho two trees bore half
a bushel of oranges, and from that
time the name nnd fame of Tibbets'
seedless oranges wont throughout
Southern California. The namo navel
was given by the Riverside growers
because of the resemblance of the blos
som end of tho fruit to a human navel,
and the name will no doubt always re
main, in America at least.
To the Poorhouse. "
All the seedless orange trees in the
world have been propagated from beds
from tho two parent trees on the Tib
bets place at Riverside. The trees
stand there still, and with a, little fence
about them. While many a man lias
become a millionaire and an army of
people have made independent fortunes
In tho orange Industry in California,
and as many more people have becomo
very wealthy In the rising title of real
estate values by reason of the culti
vation of the navel orange, Luther Tib
bets lias grown steadily poorer in purse.
He sees all about the scenes of his first
experiments with the seedless orango
trees beautiful homes, and rich orango
groves worth tens of thousands of dol
lars, all made by reason of tho navel
orange. It is the old story of the pool'
inventor and the business man wiio
buys the inventor's product for a song
and makes a fortune. Mr. Tibbets rea
soned that the first trees cume from
tho government at Washington, und
that therefore they belonged to the
public. He gave away hundreds of buds
from his parent trees that would have
been eagerly bought at $5 and $10 each.
He became Involved in litigation con
corning tho Irrigation water on his
property, and that consumed all his
assets and several years of his life. He
mortgaged Ills orange grove to travel
with an Invalid wife, and the mort
gagee foreclosed and took the prop
erty. There have been several propo
sltions in the California legislature to
pension Mr. Tibbets, but ho .has never
favored the idea, and it has come to
naught. Last fall the old man was
seriously ill in his rude cabin, whero
Riverside county has provided for his
malntenunco for several years, and ho
was taken to the poorhouse.
