Definition of Eradicating:
In the work of eradicating pleuropneumonia from the United States many stables were found in which the disease would appear and reappear after the slaughter of affected herds, and in spite of any precautions which were adopted.- "Special Report on Diseases of Cattle", U.S. Department of Agriculture J.R. Mohler.
The feeling which makes the most loyal subject shrink from the thought of giving up to a shameful death the rebel who, vanquished, hunted down, and in mortal agony, begs for a morsel of bread and a cup of water, may be a weakness; but it is surely a weakness very nearly allied to virtue, a weakness which, constituted as human beings are, we can hardly eradicate from the mind without eradicating many noble and benevolent sentiments.- "The History of England from the Accession of James II. Volume 1 (of 5)", Thomas Babington Macaulay.
