Mr. GARDINER:

Only using one at a time. We used Cockfield-Brown at one time and have been using the Canadian Advertising Agency since. By way of correction I should say that there were some small matters of advertising looked after by a firm in Winnipeg in connection with our cattle movement and things of that kind.

Mr. EVANS:

Has anything been done, in regard to the sore mouth disease in lambs.

I understand there has been quite a loss in the prairie flocks on account of this disease, and I should like to know if any work is being done towards getting a vaccine, or. something of that kind, to control it?

Mr. GARDINER:

I understand there is a recommended treatment for the disease. The department has been asked to bring in a serum with living virus in connection with the disease, but so far it has not agreed to do so. The department does not agree with that method of dealing with the disease. There is a recognized treatment for it.

Mr. GARDINER:

I understand there is

objection to bringing in vaccine from the south. It is based upon the idea of treatment through the use of the living virus in the vaccine. The health of animals branch of this department have never used that method of treatment in connection with any disease

Mr. GARDINER:

Every year we have followed the practice of waiting for the supple-mentaries with the idea that there would be more information at that time as to the number of districts which would be included for investigation during the coming season.

Mr. GARDINER:

Those are the districts which had to be reinvestigated or rechecked. The sum of $200,000 was provided in the main estimates to. deal with districts which have been gone over at least once. The retesting work is to take place this year. The sum of SI 10,000 will cover the number of districts we bring in to test for the first time.

Mr. GARDINER:

Yes. Speaking from

memory I would say that as a matter of general practice the counties made application. They have to go through the form of getting petitions. They are at certain stages at different times, and it is only after they have gone through all stages that we include them in the estimates for expenditures during the year.
