Kansas Freed From Quarantine.
Washington, D. C., July 28.--The entire State of Kansas is now freed from quarantine for the foot and mouth disease, the order taking effect on July 26. The same order frees the States of Connecticut and West Virginia, and limits the quarantined areas in Kentucky, Maryland and Virginia to stock yards at Louisville, Baltimore and Richmond. Five counties are freed in New York, four in Pennsylvania and one in Illinois.
There is now very little territory still under quarantine for this disease in the United States. Four counties in Illinois, three in New York, and two in Pennsylvania constitute practically all that remains, with the exception of stock yeards and isolated premises. In Kansas the quarantine was confined at its worst to four counties.
