Cattle Dying Near Germanla Gleaner; Dr. Sayers of Algona, deputy state veterinarian, was called Wednesday to Mr. Campbell's farm seven miles south west of this city to investigate the cause of (.he death of several head of cattle iu that neighborhood. My, Campbell had several head that were sick, but had lost none as yet, although his neighbor, Charles Hftusen had lost thirteen bead, mostly young cattle and milch cows. The disease was pronounced by the doctor to be pneur monia, caused by so much damp weather. The first symptoms noticeable were the swelling of the throat and tongue until the • animal could hardly get its breath and, in most cases causing death. He left medicine for the afflicted animals, which gave relief shortly and no more deaths have occurred since his visit. ' Bancroft Veterinarian Sayers of Algooa came up Friday last to examine W. w. Campbell's cattle, Mr. C. fearing they might be affected with tuberculosis. The examiujition dis- closed nothing further than bronco-phneu- monia, in one of the animals, from exposure in the coW rainy weather. Nicholas Schiltz, northeast of town, suffered a severe loss Tuesday forenoon, his large barn, granary, chicken coop and Sheds burning to the ground. A part of his machinery and wagons burned, as well as about $1,000 worth of grain, but none of his stock excepting a few hogs was killed. Mr. Schiltz believes the fire was set by lightening.
