During the past month, we have received many inquiries for information regarding the causes and treatment of the above named diseases. Many of these communications have been answered direct, but, in order to meet all past and future inquiries, regarding these diseases, we have decided to issue the following information for the benefit of those who are asking- for the same. There is certainly no state in the Union, where contagious and infectious diseases have done so little damage, as in South Dakota, and if stockmen and flock masters throughout the state, would take more interest in the work of stamping out disease when it makes its first appearance, their loss would be still further reduced. It is the duty of every stock owner to assist the state board of health and their several county boards of health, in taking whatever steps may be necessary, or within their reach, for the cure of the afflicted or for the protection of the healthy, from becoming afflicted.
