S J JEARM AlfD H;OME Texas 'Fever. TF. 1. Juocks -miles to the Tesas Stoclniian 'as follows: I desire to pen a few thoughts with legard to the Tesas cattle iever. I believe it is conceded on all sides that our Texas cattle are healthy when they leave the range in Texas ana are equally healthy when they arrive at their destination in northern markets. And r believe it is also conceded that northern or western cattle be come diseased "with what is termed Texas fever by feeding on the range over -which Texas cattle have passed. If such is the fact, would not impor ted cattle from the north, or else where, when brought to Texas and placed on range upon which Texas cattle had recently -been'grazing, be liable to take the same fever? "Would it not be prudent for stockmen in Texas importing fine stock to place upon ranges or in pastures up n which no Texas cattle had been graz ing for three months previous? By so doing, if the above premises are correct, farmers may save the lives of much ...

Some of the tales of suffering en dured and of heroism displayed while the blizzard was raging in the northwest are unparalleled.
