Many noted members o! he profession from many states wore Present, and many topics of interest o stock men were discussed. The most important result of the meeting and one of groat local interest is the .ctlon taken regarding tuberculosis. 1 hls society representing the ablest alent of the nation resolved very trongly that tuberculosis is a danger- us disease even in a mild form, and hat tuberculin Is not only a safe test ut is the only sure test. The resolu- ions in full are as follows: Whereas, Tuberculosis is an infectious isease, dangerous alike to man and the ower auimuls, and Whereas, Scientific experimentation has oinonstratcd the possibility of transmlt- ing the disease through dairy and other nlmal products from tuberculous animals, nd Whereas, The extensive use of tuber- ulin as a diagnostic agent has thoroughly emonstrated its high value for that urpose', therefore be it Resolved, That it is the judgment of the United States Veterinary Medical Associa- ion that it is the duty of sanitary boards. ,nd other health officers, to employ all Tactical methods calculated to restrict his disease. Resolved, That we regard the tuberculin eat as the only reliable means how known o the scientific world for detecting obscure ases of tuberculosis in the living subject, ,nd that it is a reliable test when per- ormed under proper and well known necessary conditions. It is further Resolved, That relianee upon physical xamination of animals for the existence f tuberculosis is unwise, deceitful and unwarrantable in the present days. A.

" MOVEMENTS, DEATH OF PSOr. DIXSON, Passed Awny tjH8t Saturday After a. tilntferifiK illness —Sketch of Hl8 Ijife—The neiiinlMs Taken to lies Molucs for Interment. The long illness of Pi-of. W. H. Dlxson ended in death Saturday at 3 o'clock, The funeral was held at the Congregational church Monday at 2:30 o'clock and the remains were taken to Des Moines on the 0:20 train by Mr. Holland, Mrs. Dlxson's brother. The church has never before been so handsomely decorated. White flowers bedded in green covered the platform and altar, and bright colors on the coffin, and the hundreds of bouquets brought by the students made the whole room beautiful. The students stood in line from the house and the hearse passed'between them. Palling in behind they marched in rank from the little ones of number one to the high school grade, and passing down the aisle each cast a bouquet on the coffin and took a farewell look at the loved face. A. L. Rist sang a beautiful solo, E. P. McElroy offered prayer, Rev. Stevens read a chapter in the bible, A. L. Bist and Miss Banks sang, Prof. Gllchrist briefly sketched the career of. the dead and paid a tribute to his memory, and Rev. Kennedy gave religious consolation to the mourners. The closing exercise was "God Be With You Till We Meet Again," his favorite song, rendered by the high school. Prof. Dlxson was born in Onetda county, New York, on a farm in 1847, and was 48 years and seven months old when he died. His parents died when he was 15 years of age, and he worked on a farm until 1878, when about 31 years of age, ho came to Iowa near Monticello still as a farmer. He taught a few terms of country school there and in 1873 spent a year in a normal school at Des Motnes. His ability was recognized and he was given work in the Des Moines schools and in 1874 had a ward school in the city. In .1882 he came to Webster City to act as principal, and in 1887 came to Algona. His education was entirely of his own acquiring and he was in the fullest sense a self made man. In 1879 he was married in Des Moines to Miss Lizzie Holland. Five children were born and now mourn their father. In his estimate of Prof. Dlxson, Prof. Gilohriat noted as his prevailing trait, modesty. He never pushed himself to the front. Executive ability was marked in him, Probably he had no superiors in the executive management of a school. He was thorough in his 1 own work and had mastered many branches. He took the schools in Algona at a time when they were badly disorganized, instituted a system of discipline many thought unnecessarily rigid, and brought them to a degree of order and harmonious work which will long survive his active superintendence.. He gave his entire attention to his work, overlooked every detail in every room, spared no effort, and dies mourned sincerely by all who were associated with him. In his social relations he was genial, modest, always affable, His relations with his fellow teachers were marked by uniform courtesy, He was firm in his opinions and unyielding in his methods but there was no friction in his manner of expressing the former or of enforcing the latter, Now that he is gone everyone who knew him will recall only memories of pleasant inter' course. He leaves behind him a record of work well done. Beginning life at a disadvantage, by' his own un» aided efforts he took a high rank in his profession, excelling.Jn many particulars, won the esteem of all he came in contact with, and died mourned by an entire community.
