SOREHEAD AND ITS CONTROL
Sorehead, or chicken-pox-, is wide
ly spread through Florida, says the
Florida experiment station. It is com
mon in most of the southern states,
and in the cause of much loss in
poultry flocks in Cuba. It is less like
ly to appear in a flock in pleasant
weather than in wet days of summer,
and the spring and autumn outbreaks
are seldom hard to handle.
Sore-head is a germ disease, hav
ing a period of incubation, and a his
tory much like that of measles or
scarlet fever in children. One attack
is all that comes to any chicken. If
a grown hen two or three years old
is exposed to the disease and does
not become ill with it, it is because
she had the disease when younger.
There is a period of seven to 13 days,
alter the chicken is infected before
any sores or ulcers appear. This ex
plains outbreaks following the buying
ot breeding stock, birds being infect
ed before shimiing and develop sore
head several days after their arrival.
The source of infection is In the
blood of the ill chick, in the soft parts
of the scabs, and in the discharge of
the ulcers, and possibly from the
mucous ot nostrils and mouth. In
preventing the spread of the disease,
and in stamping it out, these facts
should help. Dry sunny conditions
hinder the spread of sore-head germs.
Damp, dark conditions are favorable
to spreading it through the flock or
Sore-head is commonly spread by
insect life, by miles and mosquitoes,
though cases have been known to fol
low minute scra-tches in the mouth or
newly made punch marks in the feet
of little chicks.
There is one remedy that has won
the approval of many poultry owners,
that is, the daily use of flour of sulp
hur given in the mash. When sore
head appears, your best tieatmcnt is
to make your mi'di 5 per cent flour
of sulphur, keeping it before all your
poultry. That, is take 95 pound's of
common mash and add five pounds
of the fine sulphur to it. Feed this

President laid down in his address to the Congress on January the 8th
and in subsequent addresses, and that its object in entering into dis

an armistice, that he would not feel at liberty to propose a cessation of
arms to governments with which the United States is associated against
the Central Powers as long as armies of those powers are uion their
toil. Good faith in any discussion would manifestly depend upon the

deems an answer to these questions vital from every point of view."
