Mange is Wi eruptive affection of th
skin of animals, strictly similar, in both.
nature and symptoms, to icon in man.
It presents some distinctive characters
in our domestic animals; yet it possesses
one pervading virus of the nature
of itch, and can b communicated from
one species of domestic animal to another.
It hears the name of scab in
sheep, but maintains the name of mange
in most otner quauiupeus. it is, in. an
ca?as, both a loathsome and a
disease. It seems generally or al-
vays to arise from the attacks of acri;
yet it is often accompanied, and. seems
at least aggravated by.Jfehe disgusting
prevalence of lice. ItHs exceedingly
contagious, passing readily from an
animal to an uninfected one,
whether the latter be -strong or feeble,
well or ill.
Manjyein horses occurs chiefly among
and ill-kept, and occasionally
among the over-fed and highly kept. Its
principal causes, anart from direct contagion,
of cleanliness, bad diet,
bad ventilation, insufficient grooming,
cocUition and sudden
change of temperature. Any horse may
acquire it by contact with an infected
one, or 'by rubbing himself against a
stall in which a mangy horse has recently
stood, etc; but a healthy, strong,
pioperly kept 'horse often resists even
diixsot contagion. A mangy horse may
be readily detected by his rubbing and
biting himself so as to remove small
portions of his hair. Yet a healthy
horse who is-slowly contracting the
ease, may not be suspected during its
earlier -stages; and a horse who is
affected merely with some cutaneous
disorders arising from derangement of
the digestive organs, may be mistakingly
pronounced'mangy. Mange usually begins
.-about' the tau and the mane;
causes a scurfiness and purulence about
the roots and bulbs of the long hairs;
and it eventually spreads to other parts
of the body, and detaches the hairy coat
from patches of the neck, the-shoulders,
the crupper and the loins.
When-a .mangy horse has 'haft a filthy
stable, bad diet, and improper keeping,
he must undergo a prompt and total
change of regimen, and henceforth
enjoy the necessaries of cleanliness,
ventilation, good food, and good treatment;
-and when a mangy horse is
emaciated, or otherwise constitutionally
enfeebled, he must receive tonic and
alteratives, such as gentian, sulphur,
and antimony, and a varied supply of
generous diet. Every mangy horse,
whether -strong or feeble, under-fed or
oveMedrnRist either be well washed with
soft soap and water, and rubbed with
some special liniment, or freely sponged
with some medicated liquid, which
shall serve tthe purpose of both wash
aim liniment. Among the good liniments
may be mentioned a mixture of
diluted creasote or carbolic acid and oil
of tar;. and among the lotions may be
mentioned--one consisting say two
ounces of white hellebore,- two ounces
of tobacco, one pint of -strong,
water, and three pints' of
soft water; he hellebore and the tobacco
boiled in the water until it evaporates
'downrto a quart, andithe lime water
added-.after tbie other 'has cooled.
' Mange in cattle most frequently
w anises from contagion; arid if it gets
into a -dairy, it wi U often run through
all the cows. It j may also, arise from
filth, sometimes fn m luxurious feeding,
oftener from very poor feeding, and
most of -all from a sudden transition
from -starvation to rich andluil feeding.
A mild and' ordinal y it is indicated
by the ound appearance of
the .animal, by the -dryness, harshness
and looseness of tin 3 hair, .-and by the
itchiness of the anii nal, indicated by its
frequently rubbing and Sicking itself.
Aggravated forms -of mangcare indicated
by : ilong (the "back and
in patches at other )laees, iby restless
and vvaolent itchiness,, by loss of condition
and consequent prominence of
the benes and dimini ition. f tbe secretions.
Mangy cattle -should be iremoved to
some remote stable or fihe'd, out of
communication .with otiiers. Their
scurfiness shouldhbe reduced by gentle
use f ithe curry comb or -of a hard
brush. "3?he disease should beeubdued
by fnedly rubbing in of soime Euitable
remedial agent 'With a brub or with
the hand, and the entire eansiatution
should be gently acted on yilaxative
or allterative medicines. A good
remedy :for external use may ibe made
of one 'pound of flowers of sulphur,
two ounces of stro mercurial ointment,
amd rone and a half pounds of
lard; the turpentine find the larxhio be
melted together; the sulphur to bevell
stirred Sn wken the mixture begins to
cool; arail'.the mercurifJL ointment tto be
afterwards liacorporattd by rubbing on
a marble -slab. Intennally, as ax alterative,
imay be given -,a powder
posed of tovb ounces f flower of
one ounce of litack antimony,
lfcalf an oraioe of JEthipp's minernl,
:ahd two ounces of nitre;; the whole ito
o mixed together, and divided into
iour powders, :&nd one of the powder-s

Fairs and Cattle Shews. ;
The present system of fairs and cattle
-shows originated with Elkanah
Watson, an Albany merchant, about
1810- His application to Boston for
guarantee funds was met by .ex-President
Adams with a sterse rebuff: "You
will get no aid nem Boston. Commerce,
Oiterature, theology, medicine,
the university and auriversity politics
are all against you. " Nevertheless the
more liberal Legislature of New York
sn 1819 appropriated 310,000 a year for
eix years, to be dived among its
counties for the encouragement of agriculture
and manufactures. In 1816,
veral months before ifce passage .of
citizens of Washington County met in ;
me court House at aauoy run auu
organized a County Agricultural Society.
The first recorded fair wa held at
Salem in 1822, with entries for premiums,

mental in practice, and, to come to the
point of this paragraph, it is not un-'
reasonable that Miss Wiley and Mr.
Barr should have decided to have their
nuptial ceremony performed in the surf
at Ocean City. These lovers, both of
whom hail from St. Louis, made un
their minds that they would be married
thus, and so on Thursday they marched
into the sea together, standing in water
to the depth of the bride's shoulders.
The bathers had withdrawn, and the
bridal party had the beach to themselves.
A few friends stood at the edg
cf the white sand when the clergyman
stepped in and did his best to tie a knot
iin Jack Tar style. The sky was bright,
'the breeze was grateful, and the waves
were just frisky enough to lend zest to
this undertaking. Indeed, the whole
occasion was pleasant, and nothing
marred it, save when Neptune, seeking
to kiss the bride, ducked her in as
bouncing a billow as ever buffeted a
mermaid. Perhaps the bride shed a
tear at the ithought that she never
would have a real rich wedding gown
to stow away in camphor, but if so, the
pearly drop must have been counterbalanced

A gentleman was out hunting recently
on the Nueces. He had killed a good deal
of small game while out during the day,
and was returning home a short while
before dark, with just enough ammunition
to load his rifle and put four shots
in his pistol. This was unfortunate,
too, in one respect, as will be seen further
on. In pursuing the journey toward
home, this mighty hunter, for so he can
fairly be called, saw a bear go into a
hollow tree, and resolved to have some
bear meat. He compelled bruin 1.0
descend from his hiding place, and shot
him -dead with the rifle as he emerged
from the1 hollow. Another bear soon
made its appearance from the same
tree, no-doubt to see what was the cause
of all -the racket on the outside, and
met with the same fate as the former,
this time- shot with the trusty .pistol. A
pair of dead bears is a pretty good daya
work tfor one hunter, butthey continued
to comeout of that tree at a rapid rate
until five were piled up dead on the
ground. Five shots only 'the hunter
had, and every shot made a- dead bear.
But that,was nqt all. Twomorcgrown
bears made their appearance, The
hero of this wonderful story had nomore
ammunition left, but his bravery was
equal to the occasion. "He attacked
them with his empty :gun and made
sueh a desperate battle that the bears,

"IXJOK OUT FOR THE ENGINE."
I am a locomotive engineer, and have been for twenty
years, and am now running on the Maine Central
Railroad. Life on an engine, as all engineers know, la
very trying to health and strengt o. The continual Jar
of the engine, and stral 1 on our long trips all tend to
weaken the kidneys and urlnarv organs. In addition
to this, ten years ago, I met with a severe accident, and
I was taken from under my engine with severe Internal
injuries, which gave me great pain. I was laid up for
six months, and suffered more than I can describe, and
more than I wish to suffer again. I resumed work, but
my kidneys began to disturb me, and my nervous system
seemed to be out of order. I could not sleep, as
my water demanded such constant attention that I was
kept awake a great part of the night ; to urinate caused
severe pains. I employed the best medical skill In
Portland and elsewhere, but continued to grow worse.
I was persuaded to try Hunt's Remedy, as If ound that
many of my friends in Portland had used it with great
success, yet I had no faith that It would reach my
case. However, I sent for a half-dozen bottles at one
of the drug stores. In Portland, and from the use of the
first bottle found a great relief. My water was much
better and the pain in the back and limbs greatly relieved.
I continued its use um.il I had used ten bottles
in all, and It has been to me a wonderful blessing, and
I have deemed It a duty and privilege to recommend it
to those troubled in a Elmllar manner; and you may
publish this for the bencflt of our railroad men and the
public in general, as it has completely cured me.

offer them to the public as safe, reliable and
certain remedies for the Cure of Consumption, and
with equal confidence as almost a specific for tho3e
morbid conditions of the body, which. If neglected,
are apt to terminate in fatal diseases of the lungs. I
claim that the use of my remedies will cure Consumption.
I do not claim that the disease can he cured after the
lungs arc destroyed, for no medicine can create new
ones; hut I maintain that the first stages of Con-gumption
are curable, even when the lungs are partially
decayed. When one lung is sound I am almost certain
of making a cure, If the patient will take proper
care of himself and follow my directions.
It maybe asked : "How is It tint you can know so
much about this disease, and pretend to cure It, when
so many educated phytlclans. who have made a study
of ltfor years, pronounce itlncurable?"
The question Is a fair one, and shall be fairly answered:
I do not claim to know more than other
physicians about the causes, nature and history of
Consumption. I suppose that my views on these
points would be found to agree with those of most
educated and intelligent physicians. "We should agree
that while the final caus Is obscure In other words,
while it is not possible to say why Consumption selects
this or that person as a victim yet the preditpottnj
causes are :
1st, Inheritance. Consumption is hereditary In a
wonderful degree. One parent very often entails it
upon ths offspring, and both still more frequently, so
that whole families are often swept away, and hand
the predisposition down to their children.
2d, Cold. By this we do not mean those changes of
weather which often produce inflammation; but long-continued
and steady cold, so that a condition of debility
is produced. Indeed, whatever tends to pro
duce long-continued debility will, In some persons,
generate Pulmonary Consumption. Prominent among
these influences are insufficient diet, living in an unwholesome
air. sedentary habits, grief, anxiety, disappointment,
whether of the affections or in business,
and all other depressing emotions; the abuse of
mercury and the Influence of weakening diseases.
I also agree with the best doctors as to the manner in
which the lungs become affected. Pulmonary Consumption
Is also called Tuberculout Consumption, by
which we mean a disease of the lungs caused by
tubercles. A tubercle is a small, roundish body,
which is deposited in the substance of the lungs by the
blood. This is the beginning and first act of th
Many of these are often deposited at once.
Jfach one undergoes several changes. After producing
inflammation of the parts of the lung next to it,. it
ends in ulceration, opens a passage Into the bronchia
tabes, and passes out at the mouth by spitting. The
place where the tubercle grew and ripened now becomes
a cavity, and where there are a great many
tubercles, of course they make a great many of thesa
little cavities, which gradually unite and leave great
holes In the lung3. Unless a stop can be put to this
process, It will go on until the substance of the lungs
lb consumed and death ensues.
Of course I agree with the faculty upon the symptoms
and course of the disease; the short, dry, hacking
cough, so slight at first, but gradually Increasing;
then shortness of breath, a quickening pulse, then
sensations, flushing of the checks and hear In
the palm of the hands and soles of the feet; the slight
but growing emaciation, with feeble appetite, hemorrhages,
increasing cough, disturbed sleep, fevered
tongue, then loss of appetite, taken to the bed, than,!
expectoration of softened tubercle in the shape of
small lumps of yellowish, cheesy, or curdy matter;"
hectic fever, bridlant eye. chills, night sweats, sharp
pains in the side. Increasing emaciation and debllHy,
disordered stomach and bowels, diarrhesa, nausea,
swollen extremities, hollow cheeks, sunken eyss,
Wtaknesaso great that expectoration is impossible;
then death, bringing welcome relief from the tortures
91 this horrid monster.
: 5'vWu, i4w(;
Kow, as I have said, I mainly agree with fhe medics
faculty on these points. But when we come to th
of the disease I differ from It totally. Th
doctors believe P.ulmonary Consumptl n cannot b
cured. Therefore they do notrtry to do anything mora
than to smooth the pati n.'s path to the grave, amdU
seem quite reckless of the medicines they give, so
kept comfortable and easy, even if hue
life Is shortened. As soon a3 tubercles begin to appear
in the lungs of a patient, It Is a common practice wltU
many leading physicians to begin dosing with whisky
in Increasing quantities, until the ravages of excessive-dram-drinking
are added to the ravage of the disease;
and I have yet to hnarof a single case of Consumption
whlc'i was cured by stimulants. I can say
the same of Cod Liver OiL Many physicians send
their patient? away from home on di3tant voyages, ta
Minnesota o F.orlda anything or anywhere so that
they may die easy. For they do not pretend to cure
and they have no rcmedlca which will do so. Now-I.-
gay not only that of thi lungs can be cured,
hut that my niedicln s do cure them. The proof is,
that by their -use thousands oj Consumptive hacebeen
and are now beina cured by them.
The whole science of medicine Is based on
We cannot by any process of reasoning decidsu.
that any particular medicine will help of cure a iy particular
disease. How was It found that Quinine will
cure Chills and Fevers? "Why. by trying one thins
after another, until experience demonstrated that it
w&3 a specific for tha dlssase. Injutthat

most a specific in diseases of .h lungs
Pulmonary Consumption is hereditary in my fathers
family. His father, mother, brotuers and sisters-died
of It, and ho had reached almost the last stages of
the disease when ha was providentially led to experiment
with the articles which are incorporated in
medlclnt s. He was cured by them, and lived a strong,
healthy man for over forty years after his recovery.
"What cured him has cured thousands of others aO
over the country.
These results are not accidental. There Is no sncV
thing as accident in nature.
Whatever may be the cause, the origin of Pulmonary
Consumption is in the blood. "Whenever, from any of
the predisposing causes which I have just now mentioned,
the blood becomes degenerated, it begins
tuberculous deposits in the substance of th
lungs. This must be stopped, or death will surely follow.
It will not be enough to get rid of the tubercles-already
deposited, and heal up the sores already made
but something must be done to stop f urtlier deposits..
"What shall that be? The regular faculty say nothing-can
be done. I say purify r enrich, and tone up th
blood, until it becomes so healthy, as no longer to
make tubercles. Can this be done? Yes. How? By
the easiest and most natural way in the world. Take a
man who shows to the experienced eye, by many infallible
signs, that Consumption has set In. He Is
feeble and without appetite. Now, see what I intend
First, I propose to cleanse his stomach and bowels
of their dead, slimy, clogging matter. This I shall do
with my Mandrake Pills, which are the best cathartic
pills In the world. They contain no calomel or other
minerals, only vegetable matter. They c vac j ate tfcar
stomach and bowels gently but thoroughly, and do-not
weaken or gripe. They act like magic on the-liver,
rousing it out of Its dull, torpid 3tate. and promoting
a fu 1, free flow of healthy bile, without
can beno perfect digestion. Now that the
stomach and bowels are cleansed and ready what
next? Create an appetite. This I do by my Sea "Weed-i
1 onlc. The effect of this medicine Is wonderful. Unlike
a temporary stlmul int, which by reaction lets tha
organs affected sink lower than before, this not only-tones
up the stomach, but keeps It toned up. The
natural cravlngforfoodreturns In all Its force, so that'
we have now a stomach hungry for food, and a
app iratui ready to make way wiih it "What
next? Any one can answer that question. Put
hungry stomach an abundant supply of nu'.rl.
tiousfoodto be converted by the strange chemistry of'
digestion into rich red blood. This will stfmulate th -heart
Into stronger action, and It will pump a fuller-current
out through the arteries; hcahliy blood will,
take the place of th thin, blue, flattened fluid in thai
veins, and soon a circulation will be established whlchi
will flow through the lungs without making any unhealthy
deposits; strength and flesh will increase, and
the bad symptoms steadily diminish. At the sam
time use my Pulmonic Syrup; Itls the best expectorant
known. It blends with the food, and through tha
blood goes directly to th lungs, attacks and loosens
up the yellow, foul stuff left there by the ripened:
tubercles, and strengthens and stimulates the bronchial
tubes and coatings of the air-passages until they,
get strong enough to lift it out and epjl it by expectoration.
Then the lungs get over thjlr soreness-and
have a chance to rest and hcaL
So you see that I have not only shown that my.
medicines do actually cure consumption by experiment,
but It also seems plain that they, or something
like them, would, from the nature of the case?,
