There is not one single ad'
vantage to be claimed in favor
of big hogs. There never was a
monster hog which did not make
the man who raised him pay for
every pound he weighed. They
do not furnish an ounce of mea
gratis, but charge full price for
every atom of their carcass.
When slaughtered,-' it takes
long time to get one cool to the
marrow in the bone; and then
when the hams are put in salt it
is troublesome to finish them to
the centre. Four hundred' live
weight is as large as hogs should
be, in order to make good bacon
Beyond this size there is a loss
somewhere. Either the feeder,
butcher or consumer . is 'cheated.
and as a general thing every one
who has anything to do with the
big hog will find, if he observes
closely, - that they . are' not so
profitable as the smooth, nice
hog of 350 pounds weight. 1
small head, with little, ' uprigh
ears, and legal and ears delicate
to Derfection, are marks which
indicate the greatest amount o
food consumed ; and it will 1
ways draw more readily the at
tention of every butcher. 7ar-

The Horse Malady—How it
Affects a Man—What the
Commissioner of Agriculture
Says About It.
In the annual report of the
Uommissioner ol. Agriculture,
there is an interesting and valu
able article on ;'the epizootic
apthse which broke out in this
country in 1870. It says that
though no broken chain of evi
dence concerning the source of
hat outbreak is forthcoming, nq
one acquainted with the nature
of the disease' pan for a moment
doubt that r it was imported from
Europe. ; 1 ThoughctTtamly 'pre
vailing in Central Europe for
nearly two centuries, it reached
Great Britain only in 1839, Den-
i 1 i - 1 OH 1 1 5
mars in ioij.,- ana America in
1870. No atmospheric or cli
matic changes would account for
such results.: ; Diseases like in
fluenza, which appear to be due
ty such vicissitudes, sweep over
simultaneously; or nearly so our
continents and island's' and even
ships in mid ocean ; whereas this
is circumscribed for centuries by
a narrow sea or a well guarded
neck of land," and crosses only
when the. victims are' allowed to
pass. , Moreover in each of these
cases a definite importation can
be traced. Cattle shipped from
an English port in August showed
signs of the disease when two
days at sea, passed through it
on the ocean and landed appar
ently well, but conveyed it to the
stock among which they were
placed on their arrival, in Can
ada. Whether it spread from
this point, or whether there was
another importation, there is no
evidence to show. Its existence
was reported at Oriskany, One
ida county, in September, about
the time of the State agricultural
show at Utica, supposed to have
been brought by Canadian 'cattle,
but subsequent inquiry has failed
to afford anything more than re
port for this alleged origin. At
different times, from the 15th of
November to the 7th v of Decem
ber, it was brought into Duchess
county by five separate droves
from Albany, which had been
carried East on the New York
Central railroad. It prevailed
extensively, and caused great
losses at Amenia, Pawling; South
Dover, . Dover Plains and La
Grange. From Duchess county
it was conveyed into Connecticut,
and spread widely in New Mil
ford, Kent and Sherman. It was
also conveyed to the valley of
the Connecticut river, and spread
in the towns of Hadley, Hatfield,
Northampton and East Hamp
ton. The disease Was also con
veyed to Brighton,' Mass., and
spread extensively around Bos
ton, at Concord, Ipswich, New
buryport, Acton, etc., reaching
some points in New Hampshire.
' The only cause of itself capa
ble of inducing the disease is
contagion or contact of a sound
animal with the virus discharged
from the sores of an aphthous
patient Many accessory causes
may be named, such as wet,
muddy season, which insures the
contact of the virus deposited on
the soil with the skin about the
tops of the hoofs ; the accumula
tion of cattle in large fairs or
markets; travel of stock by rail
or road, and the like. Yet these
are but means of the diffusion of
the poison, while no one of them",
nor taken . together,' can call the
disease into existence where the
poison is not already present.
Though prevalent in Europe du
ring, or after almost every great
war since 1695, it did not reach
Great Britain until 1839, when
it was brought by Dutch cattle
imported into London.
In 1841 it is first reported in
Denmark. The list
of real causes is narrowed down
to the simple contract of the
virus with a healthy animal. It
is often carried on the clothes,
boots and hands of men, on the
fibres . of bay and ; straw; pre
served on the walls, floors man
gers and other fittings of build
ings ; on stable utensils, in yards,
parks, roads , and railroad cars ;
on drinking troughs or it may
carried on the legs or. bodies of
dogs, chickens, rats- arid other
animals which themselves1 escape
the infliction. In short any solid
body may retain and be a. bearer
of this contagion. "
Its transmission to man has
been noticed during almost every
great outbreak since that of 1C95.
It has been reported, among oth
ers, by Valentine, Nadberny,
Xeirtsky, Kold, Hesturg, -Bayer,
Bosquet,- Loude, Sevigny, Dun-
dressy, Hubher, Holmes Balfour,
Karkeek and Watson. Cases of
thejsjeinjnan jwere. geen in
Albany and at Soutn Dover,
Duchess county, N. Y., during
the outbreak of 1870. It shows
itself in man by slight feverish-
ness ana tne lormation on tne
tongue and inside the lips and
cheeks, and sometimes on the
head, of small blisters, rarely
amounting to the bulk of a lentil.
In children and young animals
feeding exclusively on milk, di
arrhoea and fatal inflammation
of the stomach and bowels occa
sionally supervene. On chick-
ens it has been lrequently no
ticed among others by Ilenicke,
Lager, Lamberlecchi,j Dickens
and Youatt. . Chickens were atr
tacked in December, 1870, on
the farm of Mo. Elgnme, La
Grange, Duchess county. Drink
ing the castaway milk is prob
ably the common cause. Dogs
and cats have been noticed hy
Lagar, Younghusband and . oth
ers, to suffer from drinking , the
Words in the English Language.
Words derive their power, not
from their number, but from the
directness and intensity with
which they are delivered. Max
Muller says : "A well educated
person in England, who has
been at the public scjioola and at
the University who reads his
bible, Shakspeare, he London
Times, and all of Muddie's li
brary (i. e.. nine twentieths of al
the books published in England,)
seldom uses more than three, or
four thousand words in actual
conversation. , Accurate think
ers and elose reasoners, who
avoid vague and general expres
sions, and wait till they find the
word that exactly fitd their mean
ing, employ a larger stock ; and
eloquent speakers may rise to a
command of the thousand. Mil
ton's works are built up with
eight thousand, and the Old Tes
tament says all it has to say with
five thousand six hundred and
, What a mistake it is for
any poor man to deprive him
self and family of a good live
newspaper. Some men say they
cannot afford to take a newspa
per this , is a sad mistake, and
one we know too many make.
If you are a poor man, you need
a newspaper to cheer you in
your lonely nours' and to take
the place of books, which cost
much more. If you have no
children your wife wants the pa
per to interest her in her home
when you are compelled to be
absent. If rich tr poor, you
need a live and interesting pa
per, and no family - should be
without one, or as many as they
can find time to read, and there
is no better season of the year
than winter to have a good news
' The Union Pacific Railroad
is having constructed at its
shops in Omaha, a monster
snow plough, which when com
pleted will be the (largest in the

The regular Republican Grant '

that State a year ago, has come
home to it.'- At' Chicago, where

not consider the re-election of
Grant an '.endorsement by the
people of all the acts of the ad
ministration. ; It says: . .,,
No one who- has -.been a close
observer of tho current of. public
sentiment during the campaign
will claim that the people meant, ;
in voting for and electing Grant
and Wilson, and; in continuing
the Republican party in power,
to be understood as . endorsing.
without qualifications, tho course
of that party during the last
four years. The : statesman or '
the leader who puts such a con

the people , will commit a grave
mistake. If tho successful party
shall so construe it, it will com
