William McGuire of Millburn and Wakefield of Gurnee
Declares State Test Works Great Harm.
Reports came to Waukegan today from Millburn vicinity that the farmers thereabouts are up in arms over the tuberculin test which state officials have made in their herds. In the case of Wm. McGuire of Millburn, and Mr. Wakefield of Gurnee, it is said their cattle are dying, traceable directly to the test which was applied by the officers.
The report is that the cattle's ears hoofs, etc., are dropping off as a result of the test, that they are "breaking out" all over their bodies and that some of them have died.
The farmers claim that the medicine which is injected into the cows is injuring them rather than helping them, and, instead of having their herds improved, they are being made sick, etc. The developments in these cases has caused farmers to declare they will unite to fight the tuberculin test to the limit before all their herds are ruined.
Virus Injected.
The virus which the testers use is injected into the cow's jugular vein and the farmers claim the virus, in cases where cows have been ruined has been spoiled. The test of the cows is made by determining the temperature of the beast when the virus is being injected and notation is made as to whether it rises or lowers. On that showing is based the verdict as to whether the cow is infected and its milk should be condemned. Farmers claim that other things besides tuberculisis could make a cow's temperature change at a time like that and they do not in many cases believe in the efficiency of the test.

Taken Ill Only Week Ago but Was Not Unexpected
Well Known Woman.
The fear of friends of Mrs. Robert Smart that she might not pull through the sick spell which came over her a week ago Sunday night was shown to have been well grounded for the well known North Side woman died at her home on Oakley avenue this morning.
Her death is a shock to the North Side where she was well known and highly regarded. Mrs. Smart was taken sick a week ago Sunday night last, chills and a hard cold seeming to have seized her. Her condition grew worse rapidly and from the start, it was felt that her condition was most grave.
For the past few days little hope had been held for her recovery because the heart trouble which had set in was followed by kidney complaint and the end came this morning.
Mrs. Smart was the daughter of former Sheriff Chase E. Webb of West street and was married to Robert Smart 13 years ago last September. She leaves her husband and two daughters, 12 and 3 years of age. She was a sister of Mrs. L. J. Yager, David, Frank and E. Webb, all residents of this city.
Mrs. Smart's birth occurred on the Webb farm in Warren township and she lived there during her early life, moving to town with her parents when her father was elected sheriff.
Funeral from the house Friday at 1 o'clock, burial in Oakwood.
