Jimmie Neville Sleeping Sickness Hits Kossuth Horses 18 CASES NEAR ALGONA, SURVEY LOCALLY SHOWS Veterinarians Tell of the Symptoms to Watch for in Disease Livestock authorities and veterinarians are greatly concerned over the rapid spread of Infectious brain fever or so-called sleeping sickness among horses and mules in many counties of southern Minnesota and north central Iowa, including Kossuth. In this vicinity a survey among veterinarians shows the following number of cases treated: Armstrong 7, Swea City 6. Algona 18, Whittemore 8. Mallard 10. This plague of horses, correctly named erfcephalomyelitls, is due to a filter-passing virus and is, in many respects, very similar to infantile paralysis of human beings. However, under ordinary circumstances there Is no fear of transmitting the disease to humans or to other species of animals. It is be- ieved that the causative virus is spread from horse to house by mosquitoes or by biting flies. Encepaholmyelltis first appeared some seven years ago In the San Joaquin Valley of California and las, with succeeding years, spread eastward with heavy losses in the western range states. It is in no way related to hemorrhagic sep- Icemia, strangles or other diseases caused by bacteria. Veterinarians warn farin°r5 to teep a close watch over their hot sea and to get skilled help at once If any of them show a tendency to stumble, act sleepy, become unduly nervous, turn in circles or show nny other evidences of brain trouble. Early treatment is Imperative If affected horses hope to survive. Biological manufacturers report hat the curative serum developed everal years ago by scientists at he University of California Is av- illable in limited quantltes only md a complete shortage of this iroduct Is possible within the next wo weeks. On the other hand, the wo-dose vacclnn developed by vet- rlnary scientists of the IT. S. Burau of Animal Industry is available n quantities bejieved to be suffic- ent to take care of most horsea in xposed areas. About three weeks are required to confer complete rotection by vaccination, the immunity thus conferred lasting for period of a year or more. It is believed that the disease ill largely disappear with appear* nee of the first killing frosts. Suckling colts are very suscept- ble to the disease. Livestock authorities warn farm- rs to beware of peddlers who claim the disease and "to report sue vity to their state department of griculture. Further Information on the dts- ase should be obtained from local eterlnarians in areas known to be nfected.
