FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 1030. THE DAILY COURTER. CONNELLSVILLE. PA. ELEVEN. Notes of Farm And Home Prepared by R E. Carter. Farm Agent; Miss Mary Anderson, Home Economics Representative. G. 0. P. Leader Dies At Harrisburg Hotel DISTINGUISH YOUR FARM BY GIVING IT A NAME Names aid in distinguishing farms DS surely as they serve in recognizing individuals. There is considerable similarity between the hundreds ol farms in Fayette county. Their resemblance is made all the more striking by the " fact that they, lor the most part, have not b""n honored with names. Giving a farm a well-chosen name is one o£ the first steps in placing the farm on a business basis. Rather than have the barn walls defaced with advertising signs, a more attractive appearance can be obtained by painting the name ol the farm on the bam instead. In addition to the name of the farm, it is always advisable to add the name o£ the owner. An excellent size for the letters is 15 to 18 inches in height and 12 to 15 inches in width. Nature provides many interesting names that might be used appropriately for farms. Thames o£ trees, flowers, birds, animals, and minerals are often used, for example, willow tree, rock rose, beaver, kingfisher, thius, bay and boulder. Such names as broad acres, blue bank, honeybrook, cliff heights, cedar rapids, and others dcnved from the use of various endings are interesting. Quaint farm names can be derived from the various Indian languages. Many times a name can be selectee having particular significance to the farm. For example, Cohasset means a place of the pines; Natick, a place of the hills; Minoaki, good land Wakinm. crooked river; Wikomik house of logs; and Washara, beauti- EuJ. All of these and many others may be found m the suggested list of farm names which can be obtained at the Agricultural Extension Association office in the Courtaouse, Uniontown HABRISBURG, Mar. 10.--Paul W. ouck, 72, Shenandoah, prominent ermsylvania Republican leader for ore than a quarter of a century, ed at a Harrisburg hotel Wednes- ay night after a lingering illness.

Although no case have been reported in Pennsylvania horsemen are vitally concerned with the problem. If not informed, farmers often fai to recognize the grave dangers from the disease and may have animal affected before it is known. Ther are two types o£ the disease. Th western type has moved steadily eas fiom the Pacific coast where it ar pearcd in 1928. It was established E due to a virus in 1930. Its spread ha been most rapid during wet seasons The eastern type of virus is fa more deadly. Massachusetts had 29 cases in 1938 of which 277 died Fortunately, the eastcin type has no spread far from the cons*, as yet, an has been rather sporadic in" appear ance. However, cases have bee: found as much as 250 miles mlarfc According to an address by Dr. H W. Shoenmg of the United States De partment of Agriculture before meeting of the Horse and Mule As . sociation of America, control meas tires have been developed so tha owners of horses and mules nee worry no longer about the disease. Control measures are directed alon two lines. The first is the preventio of the introduction o£ the causativ agent into a susceptible animal. Th second is raising the resistance of th animal's body to the infection b vaccination. It has been generally accepted tha the disease is transmitted by bitin insects, particularly mosquitoes an much can be done to prevent the dis ease by protecting the animals from the insectj. Of more than 30,00 horses vaccinated with the new for malized chicle embryo vaccine afte the disease had appeared in their dis tricts, less than one-half of one pe cent developed the disease. This particularly encouraging since farm ers and horse breeders now need longer fear to buy good horses fo work or breeding. Good care and adequate feedin, with protection against mosquitoc and other bloodsucking insect proved very successful in lessenir the number o£ cases m 1938. Dartmouth Takes Title.
