Iowa State Veterinary Department, Ames, Iowa, May 27, 1895. Editor of llepublicfin, Algona, Iowa. Dear sir:— In view of the fact that there lias been considerable discussion of late, relative to tuberculosis in cattle and its relation to tlie public health it has occurred to me that it might be of interest to your readers to know what is being done by the veterinary department the college by way of throwing light on this terrible disease. I say "terible," and think that all will agree with me that it is such, when we reflect that one seventh of the human race succomb to its deadly effects. Whether or not the disease is communicated from the bovine to the human species or vice versa is a subject that has occasioned considerable contention. It has however been settled beyond all doubt that the milk from cows having a tuberculous udder will communicate the disease to the susceptible individual using it ns food whether the said individual be human or otherwise. Whether or not the milk, from cows having ihe general form of the disease, is dangerous, is not so well knovi>n; it is along this line that the department will carry on its .experimented work. Of course it is rather difficult to find a human being who is enthusiastic enough in the cause of science,t$ allow himself to be experimented on even though he knew that subsequent generations would rise up and called him "blessed," so by way of obviating this difficulty the authorities have secured several dozen rabbits and guinea nigs which for experimental work will answer the purpose just as well. We shall endeavor to ascertain in how many different ways we can communicate the disease to these animals. With this object in view the rabbits are divided into several lots. One lot will be inoculated with milk injected into the peritoneal cavity, then will be fed oil milk from consumptive cows, others will be inoculated with 'portions of the usual discharge^ from the'affected, animals, while still Vthers will receive blood inoculations. The cows that the department has under observation are some that were condemned by the state veterinarian as being tuberculous and were owned by a man living near Odeboldt. Several have recently given birth to off- springs. The calves are removed from all contact'with the diseased cattle and are fed on milk from healthy cows, the object of this is to ascertain if they have inherited the disease. , Yours truly, E. T.

Smith, as member of the monument commission under statutory instructions, proceeded last week to gather the remains of the victims of the of the massacre and deposit the same within the plat at the base of the monument. It was a sad mission, bringing vividly to the memory of Mr. Smith the horrors of March i J857, As a member of the relief expedition from Fort Dodge and Webster City he assisted in burying these bodies. No coffins enclosed the remains, for there was no plank' or board within many miles. Wrapped in blankets the bodies of men, women, and children were deposited in shallow graves, the best that could be made on account of the frozen condition of the earth, Eight members of the Howe and Thatcher families were buried on the Ladue farm, southeast of Spirit Lake on the south shore of the east Okoboji lake. Several were laid on the Arthur farm on the east shore, A number were buried just south of the crossing at the junction, of tbe Okobo- jis, but these were the following summer removed to what is now the Allen farm, goutlwest of ArnpW's Parki except the,b,ody of Dr. Harriot which Rockingham Ware are to be found at- LANGDON & HUDSON'S.
