get at the extent of the Injury to the

horses of this state and Kansas during
the past two weeks. It has beeu im
possible to obtain precise Information
from all parts of the couuty in time

in the next issue, to give a detailed re
port of tho ravages of this posiilence,

known iu our history, exceeding In the
actual value of property destroyed the
damage done by the grasshopper
plugue of 1871. At the time of the vis
itation of the locusts there was not
so much value to be destroyed.
The disease seems to have been
some sort of an attack of the brain.
The horse attacked became stupid or
wild, often blind, sometimes madden
ed, with a desire to attaok its owner
or keeper, regardless of fences, with
all the Indications of intense suffering.
In some cases the horses were sbpt to
pat them out of misery Cases have
been reported where poisons were
given to terminate their suffering,
which were followed by the recovery
of the animals attacked.
A very few cases bave been reported
where the horses are regaining their
health after an attack. Thete oases,
however, were exceptional.
Usually death followed within two
to six days after tho discovery of
the first symptoms of the dread disease.
Horses were attacked that had been
kept from running iu the pastures,
and wlieie the disease had broken out

,Tbe Chief leporter lias heard much
blttmicss expressed at those who

for men to be Indignant at somebody
or something in the fact or sucn a
calamity. But It must be remembered
tbntf.thoae'who couuceled this practice
were acting with the best Intentions,
that they are no more to be blao

rest of us, that the hoises which have
died bad they not been treated. The
community was iu the presence of an
unknown terror which destroyed the
possibility of calm and unit mo con

be necessary, and it is little wonder
if measures were employed too pre
