To think all cone with one a war;
To start, to thrill, then back to sink
From expectation's Joyous brink :

All the Jane sunshine had not riven;
If all expression proved too weak
Till heart to heart and cheek to cheek
Alone sufficed that word to speak
Which set the pent-up passion free.

And bud the struggling heart at rest.

The pain the opposition cost;
To listen with averted face.
Yet yearn to close with an embrace:
To watch, to tend, to smile, to Brieve.
Reproof to bear, advice receive;
To work, to wait, to pray, to live.
And to give all, and still to rive;
If this be love, believe me, dear.

An hour later they entered a pretty
house where wycrort s betnrothed re

where a lady was waiting.
She who rose to meet them was a
slim, graceful woman, with, handsome
blue eyes and tawny, curly hair. She
was dressed in plain black silk; a dainty
white lace scart was arranged about her
shoulders; and she wore a string of
pearls about her neck and a white rose
in her hair.
"Duloe Miss Gordon allow me"

The President's Veto of the "Bill to lie-
strain Chinese Immigation.
. WAamwrruM. March 1.
The following la the text of the President's
message to the House of Representatives veto
ing the bill to restrict Chinese Immigration:
To the House of representatives :
After a verv careful consideration of Honse
bill 2.433. entitled An Act to Restrict the Immi
gration of Chinese to the United States." I here
with rctnra it to the House of Representatives,
in which it originated, with my objections to its
passage. The bill aa it was sent to the Senate
from the Honse of Representatives, was con
fined in its provisions to the object named
in its title, which is that of "An Act
to Restrict the Immigration . of Chinese
to the United States." The only means
adopted to. secure the proposed ob
ject waa a limitation in the number of Chinese
passengers which might be brought to this coun
try by any one vessel to fifteen, and as this num
ber was not fixed in any proportion to sise or
tonnage of vessel, or by any consideration of
safety or accommodation of these passengers,
the simple purpose and effect of the enactment
were to repress this immigration to an extent
falling bnt little short of its absolute exclusion.
The bill as amended in the Senate and now pre
sented to me, includes an independent and addi
tional provision which aims at and on terms re
quires the abrogation by this Government of
Articles 6 and 6 of the treaty with China, eo ru
in only called the " Burlingame treaty." through
the action of tne Executive enjoined by thin pro
vision of the act.
The Burlingame treaty, of which ratifications
were exchanged at Pekin, November 1X69, re
cites as the occasion and motive of its negotia
tion by the two Governments, that since the
conclusion of the treaty between the United
States of America and Ta Sing Empire (China)
of the 18th of June, 18W, circumstances have
arisen showing the necessity of additional arti
cles thereto, and proceeds to an agreement aa to
ssid additional articles. These negotiations,
therefore, ending by the signature of additional
articles, July 28 1 had for their
object the completion of onr treaty
rights and obligations towards the Govern
ment of China by the incorporation of these
new articles as henceforth parts of the prin
cipal treaty to which they are made supplemen
tal, upon the settled rules of interpretation ap
plicable to such supplemental negotiations. The
text of the principal treaty and of these " addi
tional articles thereto." constitute one treaty
from the eonclusion of the new negotions in all
parts of equal and concurrent force and obliga
tion between two Governments, and to all in
tents and purposes as if embraced in one instru
ment. The principal treaty of which ratifica
tions were exchanged Aug. 16, 1859. recites that
the United States of America and the Ta Tsing
Km pi re. desiring to maintain firm, lasting and
sincere friendship, have resolved to renew in a
manner clear ana positive, by means of a treaty
or general convention of peace, amity and com
merce, the rules of which shall in the future be
mutually observed in the intercourse of their
respective countries," and proceeds in its thirty
articles to lay out a careful and comprehensive
system for commercial relations of our people
Tne main substance of all the provisions of
this treaty is to define and secure the rights of
our people in respect of access to residence and
protection in and trade with China. The actual
provisions in our favor in these respects were
framed to be and have been found to be ade
quate and appropriate to the interests of our
commerce, and by the concluding article we re
ceive the important guaranty " that should at
any time the Ta Tsing Empire grant to any na
tion or merchants, or citisenaof any nation, any
right, privilege or favor connected either
with navigation, commerce, political or other in
tercourse which is not conferred by this treaty,
such right, privilege and favor shall at once
freely inure to the benefit of the United States,
its publio officers, merchants and citizens.
Against this body of stipulations in our favor
and this permanent engagement of equality in
respect oi all future conceesiona to foreign na
tions, a general promise of permanent peace and
good offices on onr part seems to be the only
equivalent. For this the first article undertakes
"There shall be, aa there a wars has ueen,
peace and friendship between the United States
of America and the Ta Tsing Empire, and be
tween their people respectively. They shall not
insult or oooress each other for anv trifling
cause, so as to produce estrangement between
them, and if any other nation shall act unjustly
or oppressively the United States will exert their
good offices, on being; informed of the case, to
bring about an amicable arrangement of the
question, thus showing their friendly feelings."
At the date of the negotiation of t his treaty our
Pacific possessions had attracted considerable
Chinese emigration, and the advantages and
the ineonvenienoes felt or feared therefrom had
become more or lens manifest, bnt they diotated
no stipulations on the subject to be incorporated
in the treaty. The year 1868 waa marked by a
striking event sf the spontaneous embassy from
the Chinese Empire, headed by American citi
izenn. Anson Burlingame. who had relinquished
his diplomatic representation of his own coun
try, in China, to assume that of the Chinese Em-
Sire, to the United States and European na
lons. By this time the facts of Chinese immi
gration and ita nature and influence, present and
prospective, naa oeoome more noticeable ana
were more observed bv the nooulatien immedi
ately affected and by this Government. The
principal feature or tne unrnngame treaty was
ita attention to and ita treatment of Chinese
immigration, and the Chinese aa forming, or
as they should form, part of our population.
Up to this time our unoovenanted hospitality to
emigration, onr fearless liberty of citizen
ship, our equal and comprehensive jus
tice to all inhabitants, whether they ab
jured foreign nationality or not, our eivil free
dom and onr religious toleration, had made all
comers welcome, and under these protections
Chinese in considerable numbers bad made
their ludgment noon our soil. The Burlingame
treaty undertakes to deal with thia situation.
and ita fifth and sixth articles embrace its
most important provisions in this reeard. and
the main stipulations iu which the Chinese
Government has secured the obligatory protec
tion of iu subjects within our territory. They
Aaxtcut 5. The United States of America and
Emperor of China cordially recognise the in
herent and inalienable right of man to change
his home and allegiance, and also the mutual
advantage of free migration and emigration of
their citizens and subjects respectively
from one country to another for the pur
poses of curiosity, of trade, or as permanent
residents. The high contracting parties,
therefore, join in reprobating any other
than entirely voluntary emigration fur these
purposes. They eonsequenty agree to pass laws
making it a toenal offense for citizens of the
United SUtes or Chinese subjects to take Chi
nese subjects either to the United States or to
any other foreign country, or for a Chinese sub
ject or citizen of the United States to take a citi

country without their free and voluntary oon

spect to travel or residenoe. aa those enioved bv
citizens or subjects of the most favored nation;
but nothing herein contained shall be held to
confer naturalization upon citizens of the United
States in China, or upon subjects of China in
the United States."
An examination of these two articles in the
light of experience, then influential in suggestr
inn (lui. will .lw k K f. k
article waa framed in hostility to what seemed
the principal mischief to be guarded against, to
wit: the introduction of Chinese laborers by
methods which sbonld have the character of
forced and servile importation, and not of volun
tary emigration or freemen seeking oar shores
upon motives and in a manner consonant with
our evstem and aDoroved bv the exnericnoe
of the nation. Unquestionably the adhe
sion of the Government of China to these
liberal principles of freedom in emi
gration, with which we were so familar and with
which we were so well satisfied, was a great ad
vance towards opening that empire to our civili
zation and religion, and gave promise in the fu
ture ox greater practical results is tne ainuaton
throughout that great nooulation of our arts
and industries, our manufacturers, our material
improvements and the sentiments of Govern
ment and religion, which seem to us so impor
tant w toe weilareol manaino.
The first clause of thia article secures this
acceptance by China of American doc
trines of tree migration to and fro
among the peoples and races of the
earth, the second clause, however, in ita reproba
tion or any outer tnan an entirety voluntary
emigration by both high contracting parties,
and in reciprocal obligations whereby we secured
salemn and unqualified engagement on the part
of the Government of China to pass laws mak
ing it a penal onenae lor citizens oi tne United
States or Chinese subjects to take Chinese sub
jects either to the United States or to any other
io reign country witnous weir rree ana volun
tary consent." constitutes the great force and
value of thia article. Ita importance both
in principle and in its practical service to
ward our protection against servile importation
in the guise of immigration, cannot be over
estimated. It commits the Chinese Govern
ment to active and efficient measures to suppress
this iniauitous system where those measures
are most necessary and can be most effectual.
It rives to the Government the footing of treaty
right to such measures and means aa oppor
tunity of insisting upon their adoption, ana of
complaint and resentment at their neglect.
The fifth article, therefore, if it fall abort of
what the pressure of the later experience of our
Pacific States may urge upon the attention of
this Government, as essential to public welfare,
seems to be in the right direction, and to contain
important advantages which, once relinquished,
cannot be easily recovered.
The second topic which interested the two Gov
ernments under the actual condition of things
which prompted the Burlingame treaty was ade
quate protection, under solemn and definite
guarantees of the treaty, of Chinese already in
this country, and those who should seek our
shores. This was the object and forms of the
subject of the sixth article, by whose reciprocal
engagement the citizens and subjects of the two
Governments, respectively visiting or residing in
the country of the other, are secured the same
privileges, immunities or exemptions there en
joyed by citizens or subjects of the most favored
nations. The treaty of 1H6S. to which these
articles are made supplemental, provides for a
great amount of privuige and protection, both of
person ana property, to American citizens in
China- bnt it is nnon the sixth article that the
main body of the treaty, rights and securities of
toe uninese already in una country aepenas.
Its abrogation, were the rest of the treaty left in
force, would leave them to such treatment as
we sbonld voluntarily accord them by our laws
and customs. Any treaty obligation would be
wanting to restrain our liberty of action toward
them or to measure or sustain the right of the
Chinese Government to complaint or redress in
The lapse of tea years since the negotiation of
the Burlingame treaty has exhibited to the no
tice of the Chinese Government, aa well aa to
our own people, the working of this experiment
of immigration in great numbers of Chinese la
borers to this country, and their maintenance
nere, of traits or race, religion, manners ana cus
toms of habitation, mode of life, segregation
here, and the keeping up of ties of their original
home, which stamp them aa strangers and so
journers, and not as incorporated elements of
our national me and growth.
This experience may naturally suggest a recon
sideration of the subject aa dealt with by the
Burlingame treaty and properly become the oc
casion of more direct and circumspect recogni
tion in renewed negotiation ot the oimoulues
surrounding this political and social problem.
It may well be that to the apprehension of the
Chinese Government no less than our own. the
simple provisions ox the curiingame treaty may
need to be renlaoad bv more careful meth
ods, securing the Chinese and ourselves
against a larger and more rapid lntusion of
this foreign race than our own system of indus
try and society can take up and assimilate with
sane and safety. Thia ancient Government,
ruling a polite and sensitive people, distinguished
by a high sense of National pride, may properly
desire an adjustment of their relations with us
which wouid in all things confirm and in Ho de
gree endanger the permanent peace and unity,
and growing oommerce and prosperity which it
has been the object and effect of our existing
treaties to cherish and perpetuate.

the Pacino States with the present working of
Chinese immiirrstion. and their still sraver id-
prehensions therefrom in the future, aa deserv
ing of the most serious attention of the people
of the whole country, and a solicitous interest
on the part of Congress and the Executive. If
this were not my own judgment the pass age of
this bill by both Houses of Congress, would im
press upon me the seriousness of the situation,
when a majority of the Representatives of the
people of the country had thought it necessary
to justify so serious a measure of relief.
The authority of Congress to terminate a
treaty with a foreign power by expressing the
will of the nation no longer to adhere to it, is sa
free from controversy under our Constitution
ss is the further proposition that the power of
making new treaties or modifying existing
treaties is not lodged by the Constitution in
Congress, bnt in the President by and with the
advice and consent of the Senate, as shown by
the concurrence of two-thirds of that body. A
denunciation of the treaty by any Government

Majority Eeport of the Teller Com
mittee. WabhiMOTOH, Feb. 27.
The report of the Teller Committee
made to the Senate to-day reviews the
testimony of ninety-one witnesses In
Louisiana and one hundred and seven In
South Carolina. It Is stated that frauds in
South Carolina by the naeof tissue tickets ex
tended to every county in that State bnt one,
and that between thirty and forty murders
were committed in Louisiana. The Committee
in drawing; their conclusions, say there ap
pears to be a widespread determination in
these States to restrict freedom of speech as
to political questions npon the claim that
discussions of the relations ot labor
to capital, employers to employes, and other
kindred subjects Is calculated to array the
colored people against the whites, and thus
endanger the safety of the people. This de
termination Is not authorised by State enact
ments, but the Democrats who attend polit
ical meetings, not only of their own party,
bnt also of the opposition, are in the habit of
refusing to allow the speakers to discuss these
qnestions In their various forms. Any refer
ence to the condition of the colored people
before the war and the causes that led to tne
war are condemned as being; of an Incendiary
character. It will be readily seen that If It is
allowed to attendants at a "public meeting to
determine what Is and what Is not incendiary
or inflammatory material and therefore ob
jectionable and not to be permitted, there
will be an end of all political discussion nnless
the speakers sbonld consent to discuss ques
tions in accordance with the view of the
majority that may be In attendance. Great
liberality must be allowed In the discussion of
11 political questions, and it will never do to
Eermlt a crowd of heated partisans at a pub
c meeting to determine what Is and what is
not an Incendiary speech and what is not
proper to be said on such occasions.
All the attacks which have been made on
the colored people have been attempted to be
Justified or excused on the ground that the
colore! people have made threats against the
whites. However false and destitute of foun
dation these reports may have been, they
have been made the excuse of most unheard
of atrocltv against these rjeODle. As
this pretended fear of negro Insurrec
tion is raaae tne excuse oi outrages
on the colored people, it may not be amiss to
say that the Democratic whites, when Inter
rogated on that point all agreed that the ne
gro was peaceiui ana unrevengeiUR ana tnat
with all reports of uprising of this class of
people to murder and outrage whites, there
waa no instance in American nistory wiunn
their knowledge when this had been done, and
all admitted that it would require great provo
cation to Induce colored people to resort to
violence against whites. Respect for authori
ty, obedience to law, and attachment to per
sous and things are notable characteristics of
tne colored race.
No precautions have been Instituted by the
State of South Carolina against violators of her
laws, and no efforts made to punish men who
have thus wantonly outraged her citizens, and
when United States Courts have been resorted
to for the purpose of punishing outrage on
the ballot, the complainant has In very many
Instances been arrested clearly in violation of
law by State authorities on charges ot per
lury, and committed to jail unless he gave
baiL Citizens are threatened that if tbey at
tempt to punish offenders In United States
Courts, witnesses will be punished In Slate
courts, and thus the State not only declines to
punish these criminals, but refuses to allow
It to be done In United States courts.
The State Government is a white govern
ment, no colored men are represented In It
and so far no man connected with It has bad
the honesty, courage or humanity to attempt
to redress the outrages of the unfortunate men
of color. The laws of South Carolina and
Louisiana are undoubtedly sufficient for the
protection of all their citizens, but there has
been a lamentable failure to enforce them.
This course must la the end be destructive of
the Government of these States. Thousands of
rsons In those States controlled bv the no-
Ucal party profiting by these outrages con-
uemn una, out toey isca inaepenaence
and courage to make themselves heard in
opposition to them. There never -will be
peace and good order and consequent pros
perity in the Souta while any considerable
number of white people deny colored people
the rights given them by law. To insure
lastlns-'peace to the people, white and black,
the fullest and freest exercise of all political
rights must be conceded to all. The honor
and prosperity of Louisiana demand that
these outrages against the rights of the citl
ens of these violations of State and National
law shall be punished. That this duty de
volves upon the State all admit, and, whatever
may be said of the duty of the General Gov
ernment to redress the wrongs of Its citizens
adder these circumstances, no one will excuse
the Bute authorities lor failure to punish
The committee say It was not possible,
within the short time they had been In ses
sion, to investigate elections held In all the
Congressional districts in Louisiana and South
Carolina, but srflcient testimony was taken
to show conclusively that In several districts
In these States, not only tbe election for Con
gressmen, but the election for State and
county officers ss well, were neither fair nor
free, and that by violence and fraud the hon
est expression of the will of those entitled to
vote was prevented and thousands of citizens
of those States deprived of elective
franchise. In Louisiana both violence
and fraud were extensively used. In
South Carolina, fraud was more largely
relied upon. In both States these
agencies, so disreputable In themselves, and
so dangerous to the stability of Republican
form of Government were used, not only
sgalnst candidates of the Republican party,
but against Independent Democratic candi
dates, and candidates by whatever name
known who were In opposition to the regular
Democratic candidates, thus showing clearly
that the result sought for and accomplished
was not the prevention of the so-called " carpet-bag
rale," and establishment of the so
called " borne rule," but the success of the
Democratic party In theae States, and to carry
this by whatever means and whatever cost.
South Carolina shares a like spirit with
Louisiana. Democratic leaders seem to be in
sensible to the fact that the stability of our
Government Is Involved In these questions,
and to be utterly unable 'to comprehend that
their course renders a return of material pros
perity to these people absolutely Impossible.
Without peace and good order there can be no
obedience to or enforcement of law. Ma
terial prosperity cannot come to these States
In the absence of this requirement, and
there must be a radical change In the man
agement of political affairs. The iramers of
the Constitution appear to have considered it
safe to leave " times, places and manner" of
holding elections under the control of States,
but It Is very evident that they foresaw a con
dition might exist lu the future under which
the safety of the National Government and
the rights of citizens might reoulre that times.
places and manner of elections should be un
der Its own control, and not under that of
States, Tbe time bss come when Congress
should exercise the power It clearly pos
sesses oi providing ny taw lor the lair ana
free election of members of Congress. The
power to pass laws prescribing times, places
and manner of holding elections for members
of Congress necessarily implies power to pro
vide for punishment of violations of the laws.
It will scarcely be contended, certainly It can
not be fairly claimed, that the National Gov
ernment is compelled to rely for nunishmeut
of offenses against Its own laws npon the laws
of tbe several States.
The minority of the committee have not yet
prepared their views lor presentation to the
National Greenback Address.

The following: address was issued by
the Greenback; members elect at their
meeting in this city to-day:
To th PeonUof tt UnifiStatf:
The National Greenback Representatives
elected to the Forty-sixth Congress, feeling
the grave responsibility Imposed npon them,
have met In consultation and deem it proper
to advise you of the results. The need of more

of Its power, whose operation has transferred
tne control oi issuing ana regulating tne vol
ume ot paper money from the Government,
where the Constitution vests it, to these cor
porations, whose directors are not responsi
ble to tbe people. Back of this organization
Inspiring and controlling It, is arrayed the
colossal money power of Europe. It has con
trolled Legislatures and executive officers,
largely subsidized .the press and endangered
the purity of tbe judiciary. By means of usury
and appreciation of the value of money by
contracting, it has absorbed the accumulated
wealth ot the nation ana gained a mortgage
npon the productive power of the future. The
Indebtedness of the people, private, corporate,
municipal. State and Nation, la more than
the entire property of the country would
bring In money. This Indebtedness expresses
the immense capital gained by money
brokers. Through the terrible pressure of
Its annual interest, productive and com
mercial energy have been paralyzed and tbe
masses of our people bare been plunged Into
a condition of increasing poverty, want and
misery which is embittering them to a degree
perilous to the peace of society and tbe
stability of our Government. The agents of
tbe money power have sought to blind the
people to its spoliations by charging their
distress to their extravagance; by a false
clamor for " honest money," and by the prom
ise of a speedy relief through the resumption
ot specie payments. What they call resump
tion has come, but the distress Intensifies snd
the prospect nnder their policy darkens. We
have reached a dread crisis. It Is the mission
of onr party to meet this crisis and avert
the measureless ruin it threatens. To do this,
we must overthrow the powerful and en
trenched banking system, snd restore to the
Government, where the fundamental law
places it, the sole power to Issue money, regu
late Its value and determine its volume; we
must stop the increase of the Interest-bearing
indebtedness, and, as speedily as possible, in

enongh members entertaining our views bave

We purpose to wield that power for the sole
nuroose of embodying our principles in law.
We call upon you to unite in precinct, city,
town, county, Congressional district and
State organizations for the same ends. We
also Invite all Greenback and Labor Clubs, by
whomsoever organized or chartered, to place
themselves in communication with their re

Cattle Plague Australian Experience
Although the contagious pleuro-

publication oi exact reports on tne suo
ject from the supposed centres of the
disease, it may still be wortn while, as
a matter of curious information, to note
the various methods of stamping oat
the plague. Disinfection, the destruc
tion and immediate burial of infected
animals, and rigid quarantine, are the
principal agencies that have been relied
upon iu mis vuuubrv biuct? ioo?, wucu
the plague was prevalent in New Eng
land. But there is still another method
which was found more efficacious than
either among the vast herds of Austra
lia during that memorable year, when
the lung-murrain slew cattle by the
thousand. Prof. J. B. Coleman, of thd
New York College of Veterinary Sur
geons, who was a cattle inspector in
the colony at that date, said yesterday
that be bad often seen large streams
completely blocked with the festering
bodies of dead animals, and tneir snores
covered with a flotsam of carrion.
Herds, numbering thousands, were
swept away in a week. No quarantine
was possible where a disease seemed te
break out in all points at once. Almost
as a last resort, in the blank despair of
the colony, inoculation was attempted.
The mode of procuring the pneumonia
vaccine was first to inocculate an ani
mal with the fribrinous exudation of a
diseased lung ; then a second animal
with vaccine obtained from the local
suppuration of tbe first inoculated one;
finally a third. The vaccine generated
in the third inoculation was found the
safest and best for the purpose. The
method of operating was very simple.
Little pellets of clean wool were first
saturated with the vaccine. A trifling
and very shallow incision was then
made in the skin at the end of the tail,
and the pellet caught between the lips
of the wound. When the vaccine had
been completely absorbed a process
which occupied usually but a few min
utes the pellet fell out, and no irrita
ting matter remained, saving such
pneumonia matter as had been absorb
ed. Subsequent experience showed
that this process not only saved
the animals from attack in the same
manner as vaccination saves from small
pox. but that it was the most effective
quarantine that could be presented.
Herds, consisting in some instances of
3,500 head, were inocculated en masse,
with the result of preventing outbreak
entirely where it had not occurred, and
of limiting it to the animals actually
attacked at the date of the operation
where it had already commenced its
ravages. Prof. Coleman said yesterday
afternoon that he and his staff of as
sistants inoculated over 100.000 animals
while the plague was raging. Of this
large number the loss by death was not
greater than from vaccination for small
Sox. Some, but not all, that had the
isease in its primary stages when ope
rated upon, died of pneumonia; but out
of the whole 100,000 the loss was less
than 3 per cent. It would not be pos
sible, said Prof. Coleman, to inoculate
successfully in such crowded and filthy
stables as those now under inspection
on Long Island; but he has no doubt
that, should tha disease become epizo
otic here, inoculation would be found
the best preventive measure that could
be adopted. N. T. Times.
One would think that the above sub
ject is sufficiently well understood at
tbe present time without any further
instructions with reference to it, but
never was there a greater mistake
made. Hundreds of dairymen begin
to complain that their cows are drying
up early while they have good feed and
plenty of it. We were talking with
one of the leading dairymen with refer
ence to the matter the other day, and
his opinion coincided with ours in this
respect, and he claimed that more
cows were spoiled by being improperly
handled than by poor .food. To get
the greatest yield of milk the cows
should be milked regularly, quietly
and thoroughly, yet quickly. Gener
ally speaking, twice a day is often
enough, but there are oases when it
becomes necessary to milk three times,
but these are comparatively rare. At
six o'clock, morning and evening, is
as near the right time, all things con
sidered, as any. Milking should be
done quietly, without any scolding or
kicking or otherwise hurting or excit
ing the animal, and she will then
habitually come gladly for the opera
tion, stand quietly and let down her
full flow. It should be done thorough
ly, as nearly, as possible always by the
same person. There is a great differ
ence in milkers; some will get the last
drop, while others will leave the rich
est part in the udder. It has been
roved to the satisfaction of all good
airymen that the strippings will yield
from ten to twenty per cent, more
cream than the rest of the milk; how
important it is. then, that the cow
should be milked clean. Besides, if
she is not mado to yield all that she
has daily, she will dry up sooner, ana
gradually fail in the quantity until it
decreases perceptibly. Cows should
never be hurriedly driven to and from
the pasture, as it agitates and heats the
milk, U before milking, ana tenas to
make them wild after the milk has
been drawn. We had an opportunity
of seeing the results of a change in the
management of cows on neasant v lew
Farm a short time ago. The proprie
tor, Mr. soutbwortn, met witn a severe
accident, which confined him to the
house for nearly a week, during which
time strangers were employed to at
tend the cows, and, although they were
treated kindly, still it was different
from their usual treatment, and the
milk pail showed a much smaller yield.
and the cows themselves became rest
less and refused to " give down "
formerly, although, as before stated.
they were treated with the greatest
kindness and milked by experienced
hands. But when he waa able to come
to the barn again the cows soon filled
tbe pails as usual, ana tnat, too, witn
no change of food. Field and Farm.
A Cure for Hog Cholera. . .
The Lewiaton Gazette, published in
Fulton County, 11L, contains the follow
ing: " Every paper in the United States
ought occasionally to keep the fact be
fore its readers tnat burnt corn is a cer
tain and speedy cure for hog cholera.
The best way is to make a pile of corn
on the cobs, effectually scorch it, and
then give the affected hogs free access
to it. This remedy was discovered by
E. E. Lock, at the time his distillery was
burnt in this county, together with a
large lot of store corn, which waa so
much injured as to be unfit for use, and
was hauled out and greedily eaten by
the hogs, several of which were dying
daily. After the second day . not a
Bingle hog was lost, and the disease en
tirely disappeared. The remedy has
been tried in number of cases since.
