Mass eradication of a herd of hogs at the W. L. Hindman farm north of Fairfax was the result of discovery of cholera in a shipment of feeder pigs delivered to the place some 10 days before. The animals, brought here from South Missouri, began to display signs of sickness soon after arrival. Tests sent to the State Veterinary Department by Dr. Cundall confirmed  the diagnosis of cholera. State men came to the farm and disposed of the herd and took measures to decontaminate the farm. Another outbreak of the cholera has been reported on the David Burke farm near Fairfax. About 250 head of feeder pigs, also shipped here from South Missouri, had to be disposed of because they carried the disease.
