The disease of horses sd mules,
- blnd4taggers, so-called, is known by
a number of names, suck as meslnal- grE
Sti, cerebro-spinal mealangitle, and la- sh
ter, forage-poisoning, seems to be do
quite prevalent at the preseat time
throughout Louisiana, as well as
, some other of the states, and is caus- an
lag considerable lose amongst these en'
animals. tec
Unfortunately it is a very tal t
ailment when once it attacks the ani
mal, but on the other hand it is one on
that may be prevented if only owners tal
were a little more familiar with it.
Those who have had to do with the
disease have observed that climatic
conditions seem to play an important by
part in its occurrence, and it seems rem
most prevalent during seasons of sun- Th
shine and showers in the warm part tigi
of the year, which are favorable to rei
1 the development of vegetable life gen- an
erally, and to molds or fungi of dif
ferent kinds, which are also vegeta
ble in their nature.
li1
Such climatic conditions as we have
spoken of seem to have been preva
o lent locally, at least, if not generally, th
throughout the state, and the animals ca
attacked are usually those that have its
C been grazing on good pastures, but do
where the grasses have been attacked ea
by some of the numerous fungi. Nu- co
merous investigations have been Cu
made to try to discover the actbal m
cause of this ailment, as it has been
thougbt possible that it might be of a
bacterial nature. However, nothing
absolutely definite has been arrived 1
ig at, so far, along this line of work. Ci
However, be this as it may. there I"
seems little question that the disease
- ias in some way associated with the
k. feeding of moldy grain, especially dur- L
iug the winter season, andeof blight
re ed grasses during the summer, under
'r- climatic conditions such as we have Y4
alluded to. as a complete change of
feed will usually stop the disease
1 right away.
ue And while the trouble may be with
the blighted grasses at the present
time, it may, later on. be with the
u- corn which has been grown during
xr-I the hot. showery weather, and fed
from the crib in a moldy state.
Following this short explanation,
ed. we would urgently warn horse and n
o, mule owners to keep their animals
from grazing on long, luxuriant past
ures where there is any chance of
w blight or mold, and feed them on good,
it. cleean hay for the present.
r A large percentage of the eant
mals attacked die, and cures are
not to be depended upon. But
is the disease may be prevented by
eliminating the cause, that is, keeping
the animals away from the blighted
er pastures, and, later, cutting out the
moldy corn when fed from the crib.

What Webster Said
American has proved that it is
practicable to elevate the mass of
mankind-the laboring or lower
class-to raise them to self-respect,
to make them competent to act a
" part in the great right and the
great duty of self-government; and
a she has proved that this may be
done by education and the diffu
sion of knowledge. She holds out
an example a thousand times more
m encouraging than ever was presen
ted before to those nine-tenths of
the human race who are born with
e out hereditary fortune or heridi
r tary rank.-Daniel Webster.
