:, When the Armour Company established a Meat Packing Plant In Jacksonville a short time ago hundred

of hogs were dieing of cholera on the farms of Bradford County. This meant that thousands of dollars were?

absolutetly going to waste instead of going into the pockets of the farmers of the county. A way to stop the

ravages of this disease and save this money to the community as well as to safe-guard the business of swine

raising in the future was a question that appealed strongly to the officers of this bank. Our president, Mr. E. S'

Matthews, began at once an investigation of the subject with the hope that the State Board of Health would Ixt

able to give the needed relief, but it was found that the board had no funds for the purpose. a
Further investigation and correspondence got Mr. Matthews into touch with the Interstate Vaccine Com'

pany of Kansas City, Mo. This correspondence has resulted in this company agreeing to send an expert here to

go from farm to farm in the county and vaccinate hogs, at the same time teaching those interested how to '

do their own vaccinating. There is to be no charge for the services of the expert. There is to be a charge for

the vaccine and virus used, but the company agrees to guarantee the vaccinated hogs immune from cholera forth

T period of one year and to take notes at 7 per cent. interest for the price of the vaccine and virus, payableat

7- the end of the year for which the hogs are guaranteed, so that there will be no immediate outlay of money k

on the part of the farmers., '

It is claimed by the company that treatment with their vaccine and virus will immune hogs from cholera for life. but they must have some definite time,within ,
reason, for their guarantee to end and for the maturity of the notes taken in payment for vaccine and virus. It is also claimed that the death loss by tie treat.
ment will be practically nothing. !
The business of hog raising holds tremendous possibilities for the farmers of Bradford County. We are convenient to a daily market for every hog 'that can
be raised, and our fertile soil will prodnce in abundance, at reasonable cost, the forage crops necessary to raise as fine hogs as can be done anywhere in lh-J United
States. But the business will never be on a safe footing until the disease of cholera is brought under control. Today a herd of swine, no matter how fine they ere,
would not be considered for a moment as collateral at a bank. This is because the hazard is too great. We believe this hazard can be greatly red iced and
finally overcome entirely by systematic vaccination. It is to help the farmers do this that the Bank of Starke has interested itself in this matter. We believe th4t

swine raising is destined to become one of Florida's greatest industries and we want to see Bradford County farmers reap the full benefit of the business. jt j

In arranging for this campaign of vaccination we have gone carefully into every detail and we believe that the Interstate Vaccine Company is an concern. They charge more for their vaccine than some other manufacturers, but they will send an expert to administer it and they show their ftuth in its
, superiority by guaranteeing it to save the hogs from cholera. f
. Having done our part we submit the matter to the farmers of the county. If you are interested fill out the blank printed below and mail to the iBank of
Starke at once. It is intended to have the campaign start on or about January 8th and we must arrange an itinerary for the expert that will economize his time as tt

much as possible. .
