Vol. XX. BAKBRSFIELD, CALIFORNIA, SATURDAY, OCTOBER IT, 1908 The health officers of San Francisco and Los Angeles were notified some time since that sick ducks were common and might be among those shipped by market hunters. Dr. R. G. Broderlck, heatlh officer of San Francisco, asked (or some ducks for examination and said the department had some sent from Lemoore, but all were drawn and nothing could have been made out of their condition. Al Tibbet recently brought In four llv« ducks, afflicted with the disease, to Dr. Fowler, who sent them by express to Dr. Broderlck. He will have the bacteriologist Investigate the disease from which they suffer and the result of his investigation when completed will be forwarded to Dr. Fowler. Not much duck hunting has been reported since the malady was dig- covered. Hunters are not 'willing to take the chance, as several cases of illness, resulting from eating affected birds, have been reported to Dr. Fowler.
